    Ah nice. I was hoping for Grim Harlequin but I guess that'll have to wait (more).

    From the limited search results I was able to find, that's the style of the Hircine's Veneer set?

    @Epona222, the style mats were dropping for me with the New Life quest completion gift boxes. If you have a crafting bag, check and see if they were automatically transferred there.

    I also enjoyed the quests ... was nice to do some fire breathing and sword swallowing ... even if it was those jagged Dunmer swords. :)

    I did the quests a second time today.

    As for the duplicate achievements from yesterday, they were gone when I logged in today. But after I received the first new achievement, I got duplicates again - the one just received was unlocked twice and in the list a third time, the other unlocked achievements got doubled.

    And until now I haven't found out how to get the "Stonetooth Belcher" achievement. Anyone got this yet and knows? I can't find any interactable or consumable object in game with the name "Bethnik Twice-Spiked Ale".

    I'm on concole so no chance to test it out. Based on the PTS patch notes, my concern is driving most of the player base to one area...particularly with 1T removing alliance restrictions. I remember it took me an hour and a half to pick up my cake quest during the anniversary event because all AD was in vekhul guard. Take 10 minutes to load in, take three steps, crash, do it again until you reach the quest giver to pick up the quest.

    I didn't get any collectible today :(

    Did anyone get any collectible other than the Nordic Bather's Towel and the Colovian Hood 1 and 2? I want to know if there is more.
    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.

    @Taleof2Cities - yes I did get some from the event crates, I just worry about crafting for other people, some of whom may well join the game after the event. Normally if a style mat is rare, I will ask people who want me to craft a 'fancy' style to provide the style mat.

    If it's not going to drop after the event, then I won't be able to craft that style for people once I run out of the mats myself - so the style is of limited use to people who would rather use in-game style mats than crown store ones - I am not paying actual money to be able to craft for people, so not being able to aqcuire these mats (either by myself or for a person seeking crafting in that style) is going to be problematic (and may impact in game on reputations of crafters who do not want to spend IRL cash on mimic stones - crafters who are able to do that IRL will have an advantage in terms of supplying people with what they want). As I like crafting, I have a problem with finite supply of certain mats.

    Where does the Orc quest take place?

    Betnikh. If you are using a template character you need to take a boat in Glenumbra, the templates do not have wayshrines on the starting islands.

    Where is that boat in Glenumba? Because I couldn't find it on the map.

    The sword eating is awsome, but it's not lined out well for the ones with tails.

    An Eternal Mud Ball!!!
    It's a memento and you have to quickslot it to target anyone. It's working great, just like the one time mud balls.

    Maybe there are even more of these :)

    Khajiit also got the eternal ball of the mud. This one will be working her apprentices oh so hard at Fishmas to make sure that khajiit gets one.

    I have found 2 eternal mud balls and 1 of the hoods, but not this bathing outfit.

    I LOVED that throwing a mud ball at a guard gave me a bounty, I couldn't stop laughing. Guards were NOT impressed with being pelted with mud:P

    I also had the multiplying achievements bug, it does fix itself when you relog.

    The quests were easy to understand, fun and fast to do (I worry that the Betnikh one might be a bit crowded since you kill mobs) and I didn't find the locations that bad to get to on a template, you only have to do the ride to get your nearby wayshrines once.

    I did notice that the Betnihk quest achievement appears to just tell you to drink the booze?? Is it supposed to have us do the belch at other players thing? I haven't met any other players there just yet.

    OH! The cannonball animation for the Snow Bear Plunge is also awesome :D

    You will get a recipe that will make you belch when you drink it (gassy something something, maybe?), I got the achievement when I drank that in front of the tables in Betnikh.

    the momento's are definatly needed...
    I like the little quests... not a fan of hunting but the number is low so I guess I can live with it.
    a title or momento, costume, something we can hold onto as a reminder (like the cake we got) is a good way to get peeps to do stuff.
    Altough I like that we're getting a motif, so I'm happy with that. THe drop rate felt very friendly, but must be I guess for a short event.

    This one she did not screenshot the recipes but this one she filmed all of the festival quests on Sundas morning and took care to linger over the rewards that she got.

    So you may be able to see some of the recipes if you click through to when khajiit opens the boxes after each quest.

    The fishing recipe does not do very much really. It tells you the sort of water the puddle is - as an add on already does - and makes the fishy puddles glow a bit. Maybe it has other effects yes but khajiit was unable to find them.

    Hmmm, the prospect of a limited amount of cafting mats is a bit of a concern. I can understand that the motif itself is supposed to be limited to the event and all but the style mats definitely need to have a place to drop afterwards IMO.

    If it's the Hircine's Veneer set style and that's already dropping, then in theory you should have a chance to get the style item when deconning? Has anyone tested that?

    hi, did the festival end allready? I found the tent near Kynesgrove wayshrine, no npcs there, just a book, "from old life to new". The New life scroll in my inventory says" offer no longer valid" when I click it, however the scrolls are still in crownstore, says 1 day left?

    Well if it did indeed end; I `d like to say anyway thankyou very much devs for bringing lore friendly seasonal events to ESO!
    Even without testing myself I got a good warm and fuzzy feeling about this, I took a peek at Santies video above , seems there is plenty of fun to be had, and care was put into making the festival quests, lore, voiceacting and rewards. And I saw others posted screenshots of some rewards too, looks very very nice, I love the hoods.
    Im a huge fan of festivals in all MMOs I`ve played, and this looks to be a quality festival indeed :)

    PS. Skibassa would like to thank @SantieClaws for sharing her video, Skibassa could see Santie was well in the spirit of the season ;) Ay. "A toast to your swift legs!"
