    Anyone have pics of the lights that are suppose to drop? If they are cool little Christmas like lights I’m going to farm the hell out of this but if they are just candles or a small white lamp I’m going to pass this year

    The other items you previously only got as one-time-usables are now available as mementos. So there is new stuff to collect.

    My home will be full of Jester's banners and full of branches and full of lights this Christmas! And that's my whole Homestead experience so far LOL.

    That is a different festival, but they are threatening to give us furniture, so we could have the New Life version of being buried in branches.

    I don't really have a problem with this.... I got all the achievements and everything last year, but that doesn't mean other, newer players didn't.

    Yeah, it is fine that it is mostly the same each year. Holidays are like that anyway, in real life. Annual tweaks, not reinventing.

    I am in general agreement, there is nothing wrong with the festivals being essentially the same every year.

    I am excited about housing items for rewards, and do hope in the future some lore appropriate holiday decor will be added. :D

    Missed this one last year, I'm kinda pumped.

    I do wish they cycled the rewards a little more for these festivals, but I have no problems with the mechanics being recycled.

    The first time you complete a New Life Festival quest, you'll unlock the Breda's Bottomless Mead Mug collectible. This mug doesn't only provide a nice swig of ale, but it also confers a two-hour 100% XP boost on your character!

    No more going to this hell every two hours just to refresh buff :smiley:

    And finally...
    Sword-Swallower's Blade memento
    Juggler's Knives memento
    Fire-Breather's Torches memento

    Awesome! :) Proper mementos instead of consumables!

    Yay I wanted the firebreather for ages! I wish it was an emote though like juggleflame or w/e
    You know you don't have to be here right?

    At least lights are more useful for decoration. The consumable items are no mementos so this is overall an buff.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.
    Asking ZoS for nerfs is as stupid as asking for close air support from the death star.

    The firebreather is an emote if you are using the Jester personally.

    Yes, and the lights will probably sell better than the sticks in guild traders, at least the blue/purples and MW/CWC/Dwarven ones. Also, the lights aren't dropping for me as much as the sticks did.
