    I'm a bit confused by the write up. Does anyone know whether you'll have to go back to Windhelm every two hours to reup the XP potion, or will we have a consumable memento version we can use anywhere as in the previous xp events (witch whistle, jubilee cake)?

    Will it be possible to sell/buy the new life festival mementos/hats/costumes as was the case with the Halloween event?

    Also, why is there no purple-quality recipe?

    Most likely, as this time its quite possible for RNG to screw one by not getting them at all, as there will be a hard limit of 9 quest per day per 12 toons for ~20 days, and it looks like there is no other way to get them.. at least you could grind til death for witch masks.. if you choose to.

    Skinchanger has the first cool helm out of all the motifs. I've been using Thieves Guild because its a hood with a face mask, but that's not really a helm.

    The cage-like grating is actually passable as realistic, the wolf shape as well. Older helm designs focused as much on protecting the wearer as scaring the enemy. It reminds me of Alva's helm.

    That's precisely what I fear, as a collector, with the daily limit. :-s

    I'm wondering this as well. I'm glad that the fact of Double XP has been noted in the announcements, but I wish there was more info on if you can re-use the mead from the keg to reup experience again, exactly like the Witchmother's Brew. Hopefully that's the case. I wouldn't be too concerned even if I did have to keep going back to Windhelp to reup. Rather that than no repeatable XP bonus at all.

    Here's the line they added to the article:

    "In addition, drinking Breda's Magnificent Mead (located in a keg near Breda) will net you double XP for two hours."

    So it sounds like the keg will be stationary in Windhelm and we'll need to keep going back there to have another drink.

    Maybe next year we could get a magical bottomless mug of xp ale? That way if we are in the middle of a dungeon or trial we can reapply the buff without leaving the instance.

    Isn't that gonna put a lot of server pressure on Windhelm? I remember when everyone (or was it only DC?) had to go to Daggerfall to get cake bonus for anniversary event. It was like a slideshow. But that was a one-time thing on one character. You could use cake anywhere on any character once you did that initial quest. And Daggerfall was back to normal a few hours after anniversary event started. But Windhelm just seems like it is going to get crushed with players for entire duration of New Life event if that is only place to activate XP buff.

    Khajiit she tested this recipe. All it did, as far as this one she could tell, was to make the fishy puddles glow and tell you what kind of water it is.
