How to Participate – Quest & EXP Boost

To participate in the Event, you must first complete the “The Witchmother’s Bargain” Quest, which you can get from the in-game Crown Store for free. A quite simple and fast to complete quest that will ask you to find a few items.

A Pumpkin, Some Guts and an Essense of Death. You can acquire an Essence of Death by defeating any Delve Boss around Tamriel! Once you have collected the items, visit Witchmother Olyve at her House to complete the quest.

Completing the Quest will reward you with the Witchmother’s Whistle. If you have completed the quest and have unlocked the Whistle in a previous Witches Festival Event, you do not have to do it again.

During the Event you can use the Whistle from the Tools Menu, to get a two-hour 100% EXP Boost but also summon the Witchmother’s Cauldron. Drinking from the Cauldron will turn you into an Undead. This step is not necessary to get the EXP Boost or Event Rewards.

Witches Festival Event Rewards

When you defeat a Boss Monster of any type (Delve, World, Trial etc) you get a Plunder Skull along with the other loot it drops. These Plunder Skulls can contain a plethora of items, like Hollowjack & Dremora Style Items, Fragments for the NEW Witch-Tamed Bear Dog Pet, Witches Festival themed recipes, furnishings and furnishing recipes, reagents and more!

The first time you defeat each different type of Boss every day, you will receive a special Dremora Plunder Skull. These contain the same items with the normal Plunder Skull as well as a few more valuable rewards, like Dremora Motif Pages, Witches Festival Writs, Glenmoril Treasure Maps, Glenmoril Armor Outfit Style Pages, Grave Dancer Weapon Style Pages, NEW Marshmallow Toasty Treat Emote Runebox, NEW Bonefire Memento Runebox.

Dremora Motif Pages

The Dremora Motif Pages drop from different types of Bosses around Tamriel. So in order to complete the style, you will have to defeat every type of available Boss in The Elder Scrolls Online. More specifically, this is which Dremora Motif Pages drop from each Boss type:

  • Final Arena Bosses drop Bows & Legs
  • World Event Bosses(Dark Anchors etc) drop Daggers & Gloves
  • Delve Bosses drop Staves & Belts
  • Final Dungeon Bosses drop Helmets & Maces
  • Public Dungeon, Imperial City Bosses, and Quest Bosses drop Shields & Boots

Glenmoril Treasure Maps

These are special Treasure Maps that will reveal “secret” locations around Tamriel, where you can find the Glenmoril Weapon Style Pages.

Visit the location and interact with the item to add it to your inventory. You can then use it to add it to your collection or sell it to other players if you already know the style.

Witches Festival Writs

Easy and fast to complete special Holiday Writs that can unlock spooky and cool rewards for every player. Completing 13 of those will reward you the Witch’s Infernal Hat collectible!

Completing 28 of them will unlock the “Witch” title!

Plucking the Crow Daily Quest

This year the Witches Festival Event introduces a new Daily Quest. You can receive the quest “Plucking the Crow” from Witchmother Taerma, found inside Olyve’s Brewery or around every Impresario Tent.

The goal of this quest is to gather fifty(50) Cursed Feathers in order to open a portal and fight a new Boss type of enemy, the Crowborne Horror. You can get the feathers from Plunder Skulls or by defeating Crow-like enemies. The fight against this new enemy is quite challenging and fun!

Witches Festival Event Tickets & Impresario

This Witches Festival Event also introduces the first two fragments(out of five) for the Doomchar Plateau House!

During the event, the first time you defeat a Boss every day (First Boss only) you will also receive two Event Tickets, that you can use to buy items from the Impresario.
