The Elder Scrolls Online will have a Halloween event this year
Long-time Elder Scrolls players know that the calendar, months, seasons, and holidays play an important role in the lore of the series, but The Elder Scrolls Online hasn’t done much with them… until now. This year, ZeniMax is implementing a Halloween event for the game. Called the Witches Festival and landing on Frostfall 13th — that is, Thursday — it’ll allow players to polymorph themselves and traipse around the game looting skulls stuffed with Halloween-themed loot.
“To join in the frightening festivities, visit the Crown Store to get your free Crow Caller, then blow into this baneful birdcall to have The Witchmother’s Bargain quest bestowed upon you. Complete the quest to receive the Witchmother’s Whistle and use it to summon The Witchmother’s Cauldron. This bubbling bowl of toil and trouble will polymorph you, and anyone in your group, into the terrifying visage of an Undead creature. The polymorph will last for two hours, but you’ll be able to use it as many times as you like until the first day of Sun’s Dusk (November 1st). While the Undead polymorph is active, killing boss monsters will give you the chance to loot Plunder Skulls. Opening a Plunder Skull will reveal special Witches Festival goodies, including masks (equipped in your hat slot), special holiday Provisioning recipes, the Hollowjack crafting motif, and more!”
