Official Discussion Thread for "Celebrate the Jester's Festival"

This is the official discussion thread for the "Celebrate the Jester's Festival" blog article.

Once a year, troupes of jesters and fools gather and encourage the people of Tamriel to toss aside their notions of status, honor, and class in a celebration of absurdity. Performers roam the streets mocking the rich and famous, towns celebrate with a variety of traditional festive pranks, and guests are encouraged to participate in silly games to win joke prizes.

Read our announcement for details on the dates, rewards, and more!

    Looking forward to this as it will be my first event, I was on hiatus for the other two.

    Can we do each faction daily once a day per character (as in 3 dailies per toon per day) or is it only available to the starting faction a toon belongs to (only one daily per day per toon)?

    The official article doesn't mention whether there will be double XP or not. @ZOS_JessicaFolsom , will there be double XP?

    I love those seasonal events, can't wait !

    But since I *have* to complain about something : please put times in GMT too ! There's plenty of us here in EU in various time zones.

    I'm excited for the event. I love that you've put festivals in the game throughout the year.

    I am confused by the article however. There are several topics that are not clarified:
    • Will double xp be a part of this event?
    • Are new recipes among the awards granted? Several unofficial sources list PTS recipes, including a max health, stam, and stam recovery recipe.
    • Can we do one quest per character per day? Or one quest per jester/alliance per day per character (i.e. 3 per day on each character)?

    Thanks @ZOS_JessicaFolsom

    They forgot to mention the double xp during the new life festival but clarified it later. Maybe they forgot to mention it again.

    FYI all.
    Can you get the quest from all three of the jesters each day (i.e. three quests a day) or is it just one quest per day?

    Khajiit she is curious.

    You can do all three quests each day.

    The lack of information about the XP bonus and other details in the article is a repeat of the same problem that occurred with the New Life Festival article.

    It's nice that there's a pretty detailed list of crown store items that will be available and yet, "A host of fun new consumables" just floats there... is there a list of these "fun new consumables"?

    How very convenient that they just happen to forget that information each time...

    It's probably just an honest mistake. Frustrating that it happened twice in a few months, but its not the end of the world. I do appreciate the clarification that double XP will again be a thing.

    Still, the article does leave a lot of questions open. How many quests can we do per day? What are the consumables? Why are the recipes not listed? I guess we'll figure it out when the festival goes live, but I was hoping for more from this article.

    Good stuff, looking forward to it. :smile:

    Always nice to get to break away from the daily routine to do something festive, and that double XP is always nice for future alts. :wink:
