    Same.
    How the hell are we supposed to test it if we can't pick up the quest?

    I purchased the New Life Festival from the Crown Store, but I was not able to find anyway to activate the quest. It doesn't appear in the DLC section of your collections interface and couldn't find anything in Eastmarch.

    Ugh, didn't see this thread.

    I'm having the same issue.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    Same here, though I think I've seen the place it says, I might not be right, but there is a new tent with some people celebrating the New Life festival just south of Windhelm, before reaching Kynesgrove. Can't do anything with it though as the quest cannot be accepted from the item in the inventory, but there is a book and cool stuff.

    Actually, this will be available to test next week, not the week after as we originally thought! Sorry for the confusion.

    Anyone figure this out yet? I "bought" the New Life Festical Scroll in the Crown Store and when I use it, it says "This offer is no longer valid". I have no quest. I can't find a tent IN Windhelm with Breda. There is a new pavilion outside Windhelm do south by the Kynesgrove Wayshrine. But no Breda and no quest.

    Same here. Sent a bug report just in case.

    You can constantly kill the NPCs in the tent, they'll respawn in like 1 second:

    I really enjoyed seeing the ways each culture in Tamriel celebrates the New Life Festival.

    The rewards are nice, too.

    But could it be possible for us to do each step of the quest more than once? If you miss something, you can't get the related achievements on that character, which doesn't seem very cool.

    Aren't those quests daily repeatable ?

    The quests are dailies. You can do them each day of the new life festival.

    The "The Charming Castle Duo" (sorry for "the the") achievement is not considered part of the Glory of Magnus achievement for "completing all the achievements associated with the New Life Festival".

    I just did all of the quests and found them quite fun and educational :) plus, I even got a bounty when I threw a mud ball at a guard, but not for throwing at anyone else. I guess the guards just don't know what's fun :P

    The rewards are great as well and it was nice to see that there are even possible costume rewards in the reward boxes (got the nordic bather's towel).

    I didn't encounter any problems with the quests themselves, but at the end I noticed that some achievements are on the achievement page multiple times, i.e. the New Life Celebrant (3 times, was unlocked twice for me), the Glory of Magnus (2x, didn't unlock yet), the Five-Clawed Cat Burgler and the Fire Lighter Zephyr (each 2x, each unlocked once).

    And a hint that the quests are daily repeatable would be nice. If I hadn't read it in this thread, I had thought they are one time quests, which would make it hard to impossible to get all the achievements.

    All in all, I'm eagerly awaiting this festival on live!

    Ohh the mudball achievement doesn't seem like it can be completed on the same day. You can target only one ambassador. Well, good to know! Okay, so with that cleared out...

    I guess you can complete them in one day. The achievement doesn't want you to target the ambassadors, but the alliance leaders ;)

    Now I'm going to login again and try throwing mudballs from the reward boxes at them, to see if this counts!

    EDIT: Ok, you can get the achievement by throwing any mudball at Ayrenn, Jorunn and Emeric. However, this achievement is doubled as well for me, and the double didn't register all throws. I was nearly dispairing when I seemingly couldn't find a Queen Ayrenn who counted for the throw. But in the end it turned out that only the duplicate achievement didn't update correctly.
