Celebrate a Year of Adventure with the New Life Festival Event


Earn bonus XP and rewards during the New Life Festival in-game event and celebrate another year of adventure in Tamriel!

Complete Quests & Be Merry!

The New Life Festival in-game event begins this Thursday, December 17 at 10AM EST, and runs until Tuesday, January 5 at 10AM EST. To take part in this cross-cultural celebration, pick up the New Life Festival quest from the in-game Crown Store and use it to locate the New Life Herald Breda, found south of the city of Windhelm, Eastmarch. You can teleport directly to the New Life festival tent via the portal found at Impresario locations.

Celebrate New Life together

Once you have completed the intro quest, you’ll unlock 10 special New Life-themed daily quests that send you all over Tamriel. These include a brand-new quest titled “Old Life Remembrance,” available from Petronius Galenus in the New Life Festival tent, that allows you to memorialize the year in true Imperial style.
