Jester’s Festival event:


The Jester’s Festival is a holiday event that typically takes place in March and April. It is also known as Jester’s Day and the Festival of Fools. It is an annual holiday that falls on the 28th of Rain’s Hand.


During the event, troupes of jesters and fools encourage the people of Tamriel of all walks of life to celebrate the foolish and absurd. Performers roam the streets and openly mock the powerful, towns celebrate with festive pranks, and silly games are held with joke prizes rewarded as an incentive.

During the event, the denizens of Tamriel defy their superstitious fears. Ghosts, demons, and evil spirits are mocked and celebrated by both occult occurrences and outrageous costumes.

Pumpkins are iconic within the Festival. It is a tradition intended to test dexterity known as Autumnal Ornamental Gourd Triple-Toss, wherein they juggle pumpkins.

The New Life Festival:

It was originally the celebration of the sun god, Magnus, but over time it changed into a celebration of the gift of New Life, heralded by the sun. The New Life Festival also marks the start of the Winter Solstice, when Magnus the Sun begins his return, and the days start to grow longer. Celebrations include races, feasts, games, and dancing.


Player’s community reviews about ESO:

The gameplay is mostly non-linear, with a mixture of quests, random events, and free-roaming exploration of the world. The game does not provide a mode for single-player offline play, although the developers stated that there would be “plenty of content” designed to accommodate players who prefer to play solo.


The player can play in ten different races:

  • Humans: Nords, Redguards, Bretons, and Imperials
  • Elvish races: Dunmer (Dark Elves), Altmer (High Elves), Bosmer (Wood Elves), and Orsimer (Orcs)
  • Bestial races: Khajiit and Argonians


Players must choose one of six classes when creating their character: Dragonknight, Sorcerer, Nightblade, Templar, Warden, or Necromancer. Each class gives the player various attacks, spells, and passive effects. The game has other character choices beyond those of race and class, such as the player character also being able to become either a vampire or a werewolf, each of which grants its skill tree. There are seven different crafting skill lines: Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Clothier, Enchanting, Woodworking, Provisioning, and Jewelry Crafting.


A lot of big gamers have reviewed the game and most of them enjoy it. If you love MMOs, then you should give ESO a try. It pulls you in and provides a world you can get lost in. It’s amazing, massive, and is filled with loads of fun. And of course, if you need to buy ESO gold ingame, SSEGold will always be your best choice here.
