    EDIT: THIS IS NO LONGER OBTAINABLE. NOT SURE IF THEY'LL MAKE IT SO FOR NEXT YEARS EVENT, BUT AS OF NOW, THIS IS NO LONGER OBTAINABLE.

    The easiest way, IMO, is to simply do dungeons. As of now, all enemies are scaled to your level, so it doesn't matter which dungeon you do. The I version of dungeons are much easier than II versions and beyond, and usually shorter.

    Make sure you drink the witches brew before you start, so you can get the Skulls.

    If you're a tank or healer, this will be much easier as queue times are minimal. DPS, I suggest learning to tank, or take on World Bosses (in pretty much every cave you find, though the tip below DOES apply to them, and takes much longer).

    Another tip, people seem to think EVERY boss will drop a Skull, this isn't true. Seems to be a few minute cooldown, so you can expect to get about 3 per dungeon, maybe 4.

    I played a few hours about 3 days a week and got this on Oct 26th, you can still get it, but it'll require a lot of grinding.

    Leo AscendentThat's your opinion. I've been able to clear a dungeon in 20 minutes or less, getting 3 or 4 skulls each run, plus loot and exp.

    Plus while "doing other stuff", you risk someone else killing the boss and forcing you to wait longer. Tried doing it their way, and found it more profitable to do runs.

    For this temporal achievement, a way to obtain the 100 plunder skulls is to go to a claim (in my case Del's claim) and wait for the mini boss to respawn. The respawn time is 6 mins aprox, it will be a long grinding to get it.

    Hope it helps this solution.

    Cheers.

    GremlinLord615You get a Skull after killing the boss everytime?! I personally do not.

    HizokaH8KSometimes the boss will respawn two times in a short time. But if you obtained one, then you need to wait almost 5 minutes to get another.

    mcnichojInfo for getting the quest:
    http://elderscrollsonline.wiki.fextralife.com/The+Witches+Fe...

    Getting pumpkins:
    Grahtwood > Elden Root > Undaunted Enclave
    Wayrest has a pumpkin patch somewhere.

    The boss is in the upper-right water area.

    Should take roughly ten hours with your method. Other notes is that you can be in a party with someone that has finished the quest and use their cauldron to become undead.
    Once the quest is completed you find your whistle under collection, mementos.
