The Elder Scrolls Online kicks off The Witches Festival

The Elder Scrolls Online is getting into the season today with the commencement of The Witches Festival. Conjurors, demonologists, and other nefarious sorts will meet in secret throughout Tamriel from now until the end of the month. Through their magical incantations, players will be able to turn themselves and others in their group into the Undead, earn event achievements, gain a 100% experience boost, and score themed loot, including exclusive masks. To join, players will need to get the free Crow Caller from the Crown Store, then blow it to engage The Witchmother’s Bargain, a quest that will reward the Witchmother’s Whistle. Using the whistle will summon a cauldron that morphs players into the undead for two hours, during which time, they will be able to gain Festival loot by killing bosses for Plunder Skulls.
