|This quest is only available during the New Life Festival|
Speak to Breda, south of Windhelm, who informs you of a wood elf tradition: throwing mud balls! To complete this quest you will need to throw 10 mud balls at NPCs or players. For the quest, you must go to Skywatch in Auridon, but you can throw mud balls in any zone (excluding Cyrodiil and the Imperial City). In fact, if you wish to complete the achievement associated with this quest you will need to throw mud balls in two or three other zones.
- "Wood Elf immigrants to Auridon introduced the locals of Skywatch to Mud Ball Merriment.
- It is as you'd expect—mud balls thrown at everyone. But each year, there is a specific target the Wood Elves agree most needs to be humbled."
- Who is this year's target?
- "There are three! Ambassadors of each Alliance meet in Auridon to speak with righteous purpose. No doubt to argue the shape of the negotiating table, or which wine to serve next.
- They should take themselves less seriously, don't you think?"
- All right, I'll introduce them to the Mud Ball Merriment.
Breda will give you a Mud Ball Pouch. You need to throw 10 mud balls in Skywatch. Near the wayshrine, there are many NPCs grouped together celebrating the festival; they are a good target. You can also throw mud balls at other players. Next, you will need to hit one of the three alliance ambassadors with a mud ball; Camore, Arnand Relippe, or Tolendos Dreloth. Any ambassador will complete this stage of the quest. They are all located in Skywatch Manor in the first room on the right. Be aware that hitting a guard will net you a small bounty. Hitting regular NPCs around Skywatch, such as the revelers, will not incur a bounty. You will need to make sure Prevent Attacking Innocents is turned off in your Gameplay settings if you are unable to throw the mud balls at an NPC.
Return to Breda for your reward.
- "Is that a bit of mud on your hands? How was your visit to Skywatch?"
- I took part in the Mud Ball Merriment.
- "Wonderful! Mud on the face reminds us that life is not always so self-important. With the New Life comes a bit of fun, for those who aren't too proud to take part."
