Once a year, troupes of jesters and fools gather and encourage the people of Tamriel to toss aside their notions of status, honor, and class in a celebration of absurdity. Performers roam the streets mocking the rich and famous, towns celebrate with a variety of traditional festive pranks, and guests are encouraged to participate in silly games to win joke prizes.
The Jester's Festival kicks off on March 23, at 10:00am EDT. If you'd like to show off your zany side, you can travel to the pavilions that have been set up just outside the cities of Ebonheart, VulkhelGuard, and Daggerfall. At each location, you will find one of three Jesters in extremely convincing dress up as either King Jorunn, Queen Ayrenn, or King Emeric. Talk to one of the Jesters and complete the intro quest “The Jester's Festival" to get the Pie of Misrule, a special memento that grants a two-hour 100% XP buff during the Jester's Festival period! After the Jester's Festival ends, you'll keep the pie but the buff will be gone. Once you've completed the intro quest, you can then talk to each Jester to receive a uniquely mischievous task once per day for the duration of the festival.
Of course, we do not expect you to take on these epic labors from the goofiness of your own heart. When you complete a daily task for one of the Jesters, you will receive a Jester's Festival Box that can provide some seriously silly rewards, including:
- A new hat – The Crown of Misrule
- A host of fun new consumables
- Unique Jester's Festival memento:
- New Jester's Festival Housing items:
- Jester's Large and Small Trees
There are also hosts of new Achievements you can earn throughout the duration of the event, including one that grants the completely legitimate title of Royal Jester!
Finally, throughout the duration of the event, the Crown Store will feature some Jester's Festival-themed items, including:
- Royal Court Jester costume
- Bi-Color Coxcomb Cap
- Fool's Cap and Masque
- Ass-Ears Jester Cap
- The Jester personality
The Jester's Festival concludes on Tuesday, April 4, at 10am EDT, so make sure you do your part to bring some silliness back to Tamriel!
