Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Getting the Quest[edit]

To begin this quest, you must find Breda south of Windhelm and talk to her. She gives a random quest from the New Life Festival, so talk to her multiple times to get this quest if this is the one you want to do. "The Bretons of Alcaire Castle have a curious tradition called the Castle Charm Challenge. Long ago, after a terrible war, the steward declared a contest. Any performer who most delighted the castle's survivors would win great renown."

When you receive the quest, Breda will give you a Performance Kit. You will then have to travel to Alcaire Castle in Stormhaven.

Performing in Alcaire Castle[edit]

Once you are at Alcaire Castle, you will have to perform in the Old Goat Inn. This is located south-west of the castle itself. Enter the inn. You will only be able to perform there are Revelers watching you. If Revelers are watching another player perform, you will not be able to perform. The best way is to find a few Revelers who are not watching any player perform, and then press E (or your bound interact key) to perform to the Revelers. Once you have completed your performance, you can head to the next area.

Next up, you must perform in the Alcaire Marketplace. This is north-east of the actual castle. Go to the highlighted area on your map and perform again in the same way as you did in the inn. Finally, you must perform in the castle itself. Go inside the castle and to the throne room, and again perform in the same way.

There is also an optional objective to perform with other players. To do this, you simply have to be performing at the same time as some other player in the inn, which will almost always happen as many people are doing the quest at the same time. Performing at the same time as another player in all three locations will grant you the achievement The Charming Castle Duo.

Returning to Eastmarch[edit]

Once you have performed in the three places, you must then return to Breda. Go back to Eastmarch in whichever way you want (wayshrines are fastest) and then return to Breda, south of Windhelm. Speak with her to complete the quest and receive your rewards, and then get another New Life Festival quest if you wish.

Notes[edit]

  • If there are many people in an inn, it can be difficult to find Revelers to perform for. There is no way to make this faster, so just wait for the right time and then attempt to perform.

Bugs[edit]

  • Sometimes, after another player performs by juggling knives, their knives will remain floating in the air. ?
