The Witches Festival is a seasonal Holiday Event in The Elder Scrolls Online, introduced in 2016.
As spirits stir and the undead rise from their ancestral tombs, adventurers from all over Tamriel will be tasked with activities that will reward them with gruesome goodies, terrifying treasures, and awesome achievements, including the Hollowjack crafting motif, unique Provisioning recipes, and much more!
Witches Festival dates
The Witches Festival runs from approximately ~10AM EDT on October 13th to November 1st on PS4 and Xbox One, and to November 8th on PC/Mac.
How to begin the Witches Festival?
- First, you'll want to pick up a (free) Crow Caller from the Crown Store.
- Then, start the quest “The Witchmother’s Bargain” by using your Crow Caller.
- Complete the quest to receive the Witchemother's Whistle.
- Use the Witchemother's Whistle (found in your Supplies tab) to summon the Witchmother’s Cauldron.
- You can use the Witchmother’s Cauldron to turn you and anyone you are grouped with into an Undead (each use will last for two hours, but you can use it as many times as you like until the end of the event). You will be able to get a double XP boost by using the Witchmother's Cauldron
- Once the event is over, you’ll be able to keep the Witchemother's Whistle as a memento, but all of its supernatural powers will be gone.
