The New Life Festival Event

How to begin

If you’d like to participate in this year’s festivities, you’ll need to acquire the event start quest, “The New Life Festival.” This quest can be found within the in-game Crown Store.

Once you’ve acquired the quest, you can head to the New Life Herald Breda’s tent in the southern part of the city, Windhelm, in Eastmarch. If you can’t find Breda, you can teleport to her using the portal at any Impresario.

Upon completing the quest, you’ll receive Breda’s Bottomless Mead Mug, which can be used from your Collectibles/Tools menu to gain a +100% XP buff for two hours during the event runtime.

Event-Specific Daily Quests

After completing the introductory quest, you’ll unlock ten event-specific daily quests–9 from Breda and one from Petronius Galenus. 

Every time you complete one of the event’s daily quests, you’ll be rewarded with a New Life Festival Box. 

Within each of these, you can find some of the following rewards:

  • Guaranteed one of the following items:
    • A parcel of alchemy, provisioning, or enchanting crafting materials
  • A chance to receive one of the following items:
    • 2016 New Life Runebox
    • 2017 New Life Runebox
    • 2017 New Life Recipe
    • New Life Furnishing
    • Skinchanger Motif Page
    • Imperial Writ
    • Skaal Master Writ
    • Snowball Pet Runebox
    • Powderwhite Coney Pet Runebox
    • NEW Evergreen Armor Style Page
    • Last Year’s Nord Carved Armor Style Page
  • A chance to receive one of the following items:
    • Frost Miriam
    • Bervez Juice
  • A chance to receive a bundle of consumable festival toys
  • A chance to receive a Skinchanger-style item

Impresario and Event Tickets

Like past events, event tickets will also be available to earn! The first New Life Festival daily quest you complete rewards three Event Tickets in addition to the reward box. 

So, you should be able to earn up to 60 Event Tickets by the end of the event! However, you can hold up to 12 Event Tickets at any one time, so any additional tickets you receive while already at the cap are lost. So, as soon as you have 12 tickets, use them, or you’ll lose all the extra tickets!

The Impresario will update her stock with the following items:

  • All three Soulfire Dragon Illusion pet fragments:
    • Hallowed Hourglass Basin
    • Illuminated Dragon Scroll
    • Kvatchian Incense
  • All components for 2022’s morphing collectibles:
    • Scales of Akatosh
    • Aurelic Quasigriff
    • Daggerfall Paladin
  • All three Sacred Hourglass of Alkosh fragments:
    • Engraved Glassblowing Tools
    • Hallowed White-Gold Ingot
    • Mysterious Time-Lost Sands
  • Bound style pages for the following:
    • Evergreen Armor Style Pages
  • Powderwhite Coney pet
  • Impresario Group Repair Kits
  • Companion Guild Commendations

If you’ve been participating in the previous events, you’ll notice that the last remaining fragment needed to construct this year’s final event Morphing Collectible, the Sacred Hourglass of Alkosh, is available. Once completed, you’ll be able to decorate your house with this exclusive furnishing that allows you to adjust the time of day in your home.

Nenulaure, the Indrik Vendor, the Impresario’s colleague, has the following items available for purchase with Event Tickets:

  • Nascent Indrik Feathers
  • Pure Snow Indrik Berries
  • Crimson Indrik Berries
  • Frost-Light Indrik Pet
