The Witches Festival in Elder Scrolls Online goes live today, and will run through Tuesday November 3rd, providing ample rewards for all adventurers courageous enough to endure the horror that they may encounter. Players can earn some spooky rewards, as well as find some especially creepy crown store deals.
If you aren’t excited about the Witches Festival, you might want to, as there are going to be plenty of events and rewards to take part in. On the official Elder Scrolls Online news post, it gives you specific details on joining the event by completing the quest “The Witchmother’s Bargain”. You’ll be able to obtain a two-hour 100% XP buff, but wait, there’s more. By defeating boss monsters you’ll receive a Plunder Skull, that could provide one of the following rewards:
- New Pieces of the Throwing Bones memento
- Combine 10 pieces to craft this collectible
- Hollowjack style items
- Dremora style items
- Witches Festival-themed recipes
- Witchest Festival-themed furnishings and furnishing recipes
- Bewitching Alchemy reagents
- …and an assortment of creepy items!
You can also obtain Dremora Plunder Skulls which will give you additional rewards. The event will be a frightfully good time, especially with Markarth just around the corner, which will finally end Elder Scrolls Onlines spookiest arc yet, with the Dark Heart of Skyrim.
