Celebrate the absurd during the next Jester’s Festival event and reap ridiculous rewards, including new collectibles, bonus XP, and more! Find out everything you need to know right here. There’s pie!
The Silly Season Returns
The Jester's Festival kicks off on Thursday, March 21, at 2:00PM GMT and will run until Tuesday, April 2, at 3:00PM BST. If you’d like to take part in this frivolous event, travel to the pavilions located outside the cities of Ebonheart, Vulkhel Guard, and Daggerfall. Pick up the Jester's Festival Invitation Scroll from the Crown Store if you need help.Once you find a pavilion, talk to one of the three Jesters convincingly dressed as Jorunn the Skald-King, Queen Ayrenn, or High King Emeric to get started.
Complete the intro quest titled “The Jester's Festival" to acquire the delicacy known as the Pie of Misrule. (If you completed the quest last year, you won't need to do so again.) When you use this mouthwatering Memento during the event, you'll receive a two-hour 100% XP buff. You can continue to enjoy the pie once the event is over, but you will no longer receive the bonus.
Save Princess from a perniciously porky fate!
Throughout the event, your characters can receive a daily quest from a Jester at each of the three different locations, allowing them to complete three preposterous quests per day.
When you complete a Jester’s daily quest, you’ll receive a Jester’s Festival Reward Box, containing fun consumables, recipes, valuable items, and furnishings. The first time you complete the daily quest for each Jester each day (regardless of character), you’ll receive a Jester’s Festival Stupendous Box instead!
This Jester’s Festival Stupendous Box has a chance to contain unique rewards, including:
- Cadwell’s Kitchen Arms Style Pages
- Arm yourself with the weapons of the rag-tag knight himself!
- Parts of New Mementos!
- Collect the different parts for two new Mementos: the Festive Noise Maker or Jester’s Festival Joke Popper.
- Jokey Stealies
- Valuable-but-silly items you can sell to vendors for gold.
- Tradeable runeboxes containing last year’s Mementos: the Jester’s Scintillator and Cherry Blossom Branch.
If you’ve earned all three Stupendous Reward Boxes in a day and you decide to do the quests again with a different character, you’ll receive the regular Jester’s Festival Reward Box. You can keep earning three regular Jester’s Festival Reward Boxes with your different characters throughout the day, with both the Stupendous Reward Boxes and the regular Reward Boxes resetting daily at 6:00AM GMT.
Finally, Jester Festival Reward Boxes will always contain one last reward: the Jester’s Festival Pie.
Share the Fun… with Pie!
Although the pies you receive from Reward Boxes certainly look delicious, in the right hands, they’re one of Tamriel’s most-feared projectiles!
By adding these tasty missiles to your Quickbar, they become instruments of maniacal merriment, allowing you to throw them at any of Tamriel’s inhabitants, including NPCs, guards, or even your fellow players. Spare none your sticky, delicious wrath! Warning: Some targets, such as city guards, might object to your revelry.
“Take that! And that! EAT IT!”
Of course, while covering your friends, enemies, and hapless bystanders in dessert is its own reward, we’ve also added a host of new pie-related Achievements to this year’s event:
- The Three Fillings War – Throw 10 Pies at players that are in a different Alliance
- The Upper Crust – Throw a pie at each of the Alliance Leaders
- More Than You Can Chew – Throw 10 Pies at Guards
- Dessert Domination – Complete the above Achievements
- Messy Business – Kill 10 players while they are covered in pie in Cyrodiil
With these Achievements come special rewards. By completing the Messy Business and The Upper Crust Achievements, you’ll earn the “Empieror” and “Tin Soldier” titles respectively. Finally, by acquiring Dessert Domination, you’ll receive the Obnoxious Mute Face Paint collectible!
The Achievements from previous events will still be available this year for everybody, too, including the Lord or Lady of Misrule Achievement, rewarding you with a title and hat, and the Royal Jester Achievement, rewarding you with a title and unlocking the ability to acquire unique furnishings. Check your in-game Journal for everything.
Snag and Spend Event Tickets
As you take part in the Jester’s Festival, you’ll earn two Event Tickets the first time you complete a Jester’s daily quest each day, with a total of 24 tickets available to be earned by the event’s end.
During the event, you can buy Indrik Feathers, Dawnwood Berries of Bloom, Dawnwood Berries of Budding, Dawnwood Berries of Growth, and the new Dawnwood Berries of Ripeness from the Impresario merchant. This is the final berry you’ll need to evolve your existing Nascent Indrik into the Dawnwood Indrik! To summon your new, fancy Indrik, simply have all four berries in your inventory and use one of them.
The even-more majestic Dawnwood Indrik
When spending Event Tickets, please double-check the name of the berries you’re about to purchase. You need only one of each to evolve your Indrik. Please also note that this is your last chance to acquire all the berries required to make this specific evolution. Once this event ends, the Impresario will no longer stock these berries – don’t miss out!
If you’ve earned more than enough Event Tickets this quarter, you can also acquire the Springtide Indrik pet for 10 Event Tickets – the first pet Indrik available in game! In addition, you can acquire any of Cadwell’s Kitchen Arms Style pages for five Event Tickets each, giving you an alternate way to earn them other than the Stupendous Boxes (or simply snatch up any you are missing). You’ll find both of these new types of items for sale from the Impresario.
New Crown Store Items
With the Jester’s Festival event, we’re bringing back a host of fan-favorite items including the Madcap Jester Monkey and Jester Personality in addition to adding new items such as the Pebble Pal (yes, it’s a pet rock), Cadwell’s Kitchen Style pack, and a selection of novelty stick mounts.
