Alliance Event Daily Quests

Every locale that has festival quests has a Wayshrine unlocked close by for all factions. So getting to the festivities is pretty easy.

A Noble Guest

Ebonheart Pact – Ebonheart – Location: Stonefalls

Even the most honourable and upstanding residents of Tamriel will be compelled to break the law to complete this quest. But if you’re clever enough you won’t have to worry about getting a Bounty on your head. After all, Jester King Jorunn needs his new mouthwatering bride brought back to him in one piece.

This quest is certainly a lot of fun but it can get a little annoying. If you avoid getting a bounty on your head then this quest is a breeze. See my tips below on how to avoid getting a bounty.

Stonefalls – Brothers of Strife Wayshrine

Springtime Flair

Aldmeri Dominion – Vulkhel Guard – Location: Auridon

An idyllic and ever-so-pretty Auridon is the perfect setting to cause some mayhem. The uptight, grumpy citizens don’t stand a chance against the onslaught of foolish cheer and flower petals.

It is a pretty simple quest but it can be a annoying to travel across the island if it’s your first time there. Don’t forget to discover the wayshrines along the way so the next time you do the quest it won’t take anywhere near as long (as peaceful and relaxing a gentle stroll on your steed across Auridon is).

Royal Revelry

Daggerfall Covenant – Daggerfall – Location: Glenumbra

Who doesn’t love Dazzlers?! Gather up some pretties and set off some sparkly explosions. How fun does that sound?! After all Daggerfall’s dreary grey scheme could really use some colour!

This is the most grindy of the three quests but it shouldn’t take you too long to gather (take from corpses) the stuff you need to make the Dazzlers then go set them off in Daggerfall.

Getting the Band Together Daily Quest

This quest will take you to all the Jester Pavilion Zones (Stonefalls, Auridon, Glenumbra). So you can do it alongside the alliance daily quests. The quest giver, Samuel Gourone is located at all three Jester’s Pavilions. Once you pick up the quest, you will be directed to three different locations to recruit minstrels.

Find the wine Samuel said would entice the minstrels and recruit them to the fesstival.

Here’s a list of places you will go to recruit the minstrels.

  • Stonefalls – Mephala’s Nest (Delve) – Brothers of Strife Wayshrine
  • Auridon – Ondil (Delve) – Tanzelwil Wayshrine
  • Glenumbra – Dresan Keep – Wyrd Tree Wayshrine


  • Stonefalls and Auridon – For the Delve locations, killing any mob will give you the wine. The summoning circles are located near the entrance of each Delve.
  • Glenumbra – the wine is located at the top of Dresan Keep Tower.

Jester’s Festival Pie Achievements

In 2019, the Jester’s Festival Pie was added to Jester’s Festival Reward Boxes.

By adding these tasty missiles to your Quickbar, they become instruments of maniacal merriment, allowing you to throw them at any of Tamriel’s inhabitants, including NPCs, guards, or even your fellow players. Spare none your sticky, delicious wrath! Warning: Some targets, such as city guards, might object to your revelry.

Naturally, they’ve added additional Pie-throwing themed achievements. These can be found in Holiday Events -> Jester’s Festival Section.

  • The Three Fillings War – Throw 10 Pies at players that are in a different Alliance
  • The Upper Crust – Throw a pie at each of the Alliance Leaders
  • More Than You Can Chew – Throw 10 Pies at Guards
  • Dessert Domination – Complete the above Achievements
  • Messy Business – Kill 10 players while they are covered in pie in Cyrodiil

Jester’s Festival Achievement and Quest Tips

Naturally like all events, this one has achievements. Some are pretty straightforward to get while others require a little more effort (and luck *cough* recipes *cough*).

The quests, for the most part, are pretty straightforward to complete but I have included some tips that’ll make your life a bit easier.

The King’s Spoils

If you wish to gather four lots of Fermented Mudcrab Apples, you will have to slowly kill King Boar. If you take your time killing them, more Fermented Mudcrab Apples will spawn. If you go the slow killing route, you have to kite his AoE damage and have a self heal handy in case you do get hit by an AoE.

Getting four Fermented Mudcrab Apples gives you more of the Sparkling Mudcrab Apple Cider when you turn in the quest.

Fermented Mudcrab Apples spawn in front of the Arena Handlers.

If you do kill King Boar fast, you will be able to get one Fermented Mudcrab Apple. One will spawn after you kill King Boar.

A Noble Guest (Mudcrab Apple Stealing)

They have made it easier to steal the Mudcrab apples and not get detected if you’re patient. But if you do get caught, you can go around Ebonheart to the where you steal the pig easily without getting caught by any guards and wait for your bounty to go away using this route (pictured below).

Path to avoiding guards if you get bounty stealing apples.

One easy way to stop getting caught, though, is to use an invisibility potion.

Elder Scrolls Online Roguish Stealth Drought Potion
Elder Scrolls Online Essence of Invisibility Potion

Reagent combinations you can use to craft your own Essence of Invisibility include (only listed 2 reagent combinations):

  • Blue Entoloma and Spider Egg
  • Blue Entoloma and Nirnroot
  • Nirnroot and Spider Egg
  • Namira’s Rot and Nirnroot
  • Namira’s Rot and Spider Egg
  • Namira’s Rot and Blue Entoloma
  • Dragon’s Bile and Namira’s Rot
  • Dragon’s Bile and Spider Egg
  • Dragon’s Bile and Nirnroot
  • Dragon’s Bile and Blue Entoloma

Princess Rescuer Achievement Tip

Once you’ve stolen the pig make sure you take the south-east path back through Ebonheart when you head back to Jester King Jorunn. The Butcher won’t catch you if you go south-east and you won’t get a bounty on your head. If you take the south-west path, the Butcher will catch you and you’ll get a bounty on your head. (Click on image to enlarge).

How to get The Upper Crust Achievement

ESO Jester's Festival The Upper Crust Achievement

For this achievement, you have to throw the Revelry Pie at the Alliance Leaders (Quickslot it). Here are some of their locations depending on your progress throughout the various faction’s story.

NOTE You have to wait for the pie-throwing animation to finish before throwing the Pie at them. If it counts, you will get a bounty on your head! Getting this achievement with a lot of players around is unfortunately really tricky!

  • Joruun the Skald-King
    • Eastmarch – Windhelm
    • The Rift – Troletta Summit Wayshrine
  • Queen Ayrenn
    • Auridon – Vulkhel Guard (Bank) or Skywatch
    • Greenshade – Marbruk
    • Reaper’s March – Dune
  • High King Emeric
    • Stormhaven – Wayrest

How to get to other factions capital cities for the Dazzling Entertainer Achievement

ESO Jester's Festival Dazzling Entertainer

So you want to get the Dazzling Entertainer achievement but haven’t been to the other factions capitals? Well, it’s pretty easy to get to the other factions capitals. Each faction’s capital city and major city has a boat or caravan that’ll allow you to travel to other factions capital cities free of charge. (Don’t forget to unlock each capitals Wayshrine while you’re there for easy travel in the future).

First up, here’s a list of each faction’s capital city and some of the major cities with a Caravan/Boat and who the navigators are:

  • Ebonheart Pact –
    • Capital: Mournhold – Location: Deshann – Navigator: Falvis Raram
    • Major City: Davon’s Watch – Location: Stonefalls – Navigator: Falvis Raram
  • Aldmeri Dominion –
    • Capital: Elden Root – Location: Grahtwood – Navigator: Selandilwen
    • Major City: Vulkhel Guard – Location: Auridon – Navigator: Selandilwen
  • Daggerfall Covenant –
    • Capital: Wayrest – Location: Stormhaven Navigator: Azoufah
    • Major City: Daggerfall – Location: Glenumbra Navigator: Azoufah

From any of these listed locations, you can get to the other faction’s capital cities.

Undaunted Enclave Locations
Mournhold (Deshann) Undaunted Enclave Location

From the boat, it’s only a brief swim and short ride south to the Undaunted Enclave.
