This page lists all limited-time events which have taken place in The Elder Scrolls Online. Events can be special occasions that only occur once, or can be recurring every year. Recurring events include:

The Crown Store usually has special offers coinciding with these events, such as discounts on relevant DLCs and cosmetics, and can include the temporary return of limited availability items such as DLC Collector's Editions, Player Houses and Crown Crates. Sometimes the Crown Store also has additional sales corresponding to various real-world cultural events not otherwise celebrated in-game, such as Valentine's Day ("Heart's Day"), St Patrick's Day, Friday the 13th ("Fatal Fredas/Serpent 13"), a combined dye sale for Canada Day, US Independence Day & Bastille Day, and the annual Black Friday ("Black Fredas") sale.

Since late 2018, most game events have also provided Event Tickets to participants, used to purchase special items from the Impresario.

Four of the recurring events also have their own Achievements, some of which unlock special furnishings for purchase.

Future Events[edit]

Zeal of Zenithar 2024[edit]

June 20July 2, 2024

The God of Commerce ensures hard work pays off for the laborers of Tamriel during this event. Below are the details and any associated changes this year:

  • “Honest Toil,” the daily quest for the event, still awards 3 Event Tickets the first time you complete it per account each day. The Impresario will now will have all three fragments for the Master of Schemes personality. You’ll have to supply your own arsenal of insults to fling at your incompetent minions.
  • You will still earn a gold-quality Zenithar’s Sublime Parcel from “Honest Toil” each day. Zenithar’s Delightful Parcels (the purple quality ones) also still come from the following sources:
    • Completing “Honest Toil” on other characters after the first each day.
    • Completing a basic daily crafting writ – once per day per account.
    • Completing a Master writ – once per day per account, per crafting discipline (Blacksmithing, Woodworking, Clothier, Jewelrycrafting, Alchemy, Provisioning, and Enchanting).
    • Defeating a world boss or incursion-style world event (dolmens, dragons, etc.) while grouped with a guildmate (100% drop chance).
    • Group Arena rounds, while grouped with a guildmate (50% drop chance on non-final rounds, 100% on final round).
    • Stealing them from hard-working civilians of Tamriel (a small chance from pickpocketing, looting safeboxes, and opening thieves troves).
  • Either type of parcel can include (with gold-quality Sublime ones having higher chances to drop the good new shiny stuff):
    • NEW: Gold Road Dragoon Outfit Style Pages
    • Returning: High Rock Spellsword or Ashlander Peasant outfit style pages, or Kwama Miner weapon style pages
    • Crafting Resources
    • Style Items for Motifs
    • Crafting Boosters (Blacksmithing tempers, etc.)
    • Research Scrolls
    • Furnishing Recipes
    • Provisioning Recipes
    • Repair Kits (equipment or Cyrodiil repair kits)
    • Treasure Maps
    • Imperial City vault keys
    • Companion Gear
    • Currency pouches for Gold and Tel Var, which have a very tiny chance for an enormous 100k jackpot.
  • Furthermore, during this event, the following global effects are in place:
    • Wayshrine travel costs are reduced by 75%. Happy traveling!
    • Repair costs on vendors are reduced by 50%.
    • Crafting Inspiration gain from all sources is increased by 100%.
    • Vendor prices across Tamriel are reduced by 10%.
      • These include:
        • Vendors that sell items for Gold, AP, or Tel Var stones, including the Golden Vendor.
        • Houses purchasable for Gold.
      • These do NOT include:
        • Bag or Bank Space upgrades
        • Currency vendors that do not sell things for Gold, AP, or Tel Var
        • Guild Traders, whether it be for reserving their services, collecting from sales, or anything else.
  • Philius Dormier, the Impresario’s Assistant, is adding some retired collectibles to his inventory! While he will still carry Unstable Morpholith pet fragments from 2021, and the appropriate seasonal rotation of its morph items, he is now doing the same with the Soulfire Dragon Illusion Pet and its morphs from 2022.
    • His inventory will change slightly with the season, much like the Indrik vendor at the Belkarth Festival grounds, so check back with him frequently if you missed something from that year or the current offerings aren’t to your liking.
    • For this event specifically, he will be carrying the Scales of Akatosh skin fragments. When this event ends it will flip to the next “season” with the following event, offering fragments for the Aurelic Quasigriff. This rotation will continue accordingly as seasons change.

Anniversary Jubilee 2024[edit]

PC: April 4 - April 25, 2024
Consoles: April 4 - April 23, 2024

Happy 10th Birthday, ESO! Chef Donolon has decided to travel the world in search of new recipes and the secret meaning of cake. His adopted son, Apprentice Mogh, substitutes his cake-baking duties for the event. The young Khajiit is beset by envious bakers, and will need some brief help deterring their culinarily criminal caper before giving you your very own celebratory cake! The Molag Bal sculpture is made from 100% pure Black Marsh chocolate with bright blue toxic marsh slug dye, guaranteed to cause instant death to non-Argonians gratification and wonder for all!

  • As with other events, such as Witches Festival and New Life Festival last year, the experience bonus previously provided by eating the cake is now PASSIVE during the event. You don’t need to do anything to get it. It applies to everything! There’s no buff to track and no need to summon the cake more than once a day for your 3 Event Tickets (which come from the cake as normal).
  • During the event, completing any daily quest in Tamriel will give you an Anniversary Jubilee Gift Box in addition to its other rewards. These boxes will have a smattering of potential rewards including crafting materials, recipes, transmute crystals, and a chance to get an outfit style page for the new Earthbone Ayleid Armor Style.
    • The first of these boxes you acquire in a day will be gold Glorious quality (substantially more rewarding than previous iterations of this box), while any subsequent daily done will be a purple-quality one (about as rewarding as previous iterations of Jubilee boxes).
    • Glorious boxes also have a guaranteed fragment for the brand-new, event-unique Jubilee Steed!
    • This event will run for an extended period next year, and you will be need to expend some event tickets on fragments of this cantering colt as well in order to acquire it – if such is your fancy, of course.
  • You can now also get Jubilee boxes from the following activities while playing:
    • Killing and looting any final Dungeon boss.
    • Killing and looting any final Trial boss.
    • Killing and looting World Bosses
    • Completing any Incursion event (Dolmens, Geysers, Dragons, etc.)
    • Rewards for the Worthy mails
    • Tales of Tribute reward bags
  • The Bag of Jubilee Yesteryear can offer you things you don’t have from among Bonemold, Saberkeel, Worm Cult, Jephrine Paladin, Imperial Champion, Prophet, Lyris Titanborn, Sai Sahan, and Abnur Tharn outfit styles/motifs. It also has a chance to give you an additional style item for the Worm Cult motif, and if you somehow end up with a grab bag after claiming all of the rewards it can offer, the bag will instead contain a Group Repair Kit.
  • In keeping with our 10th year of shenanigans in ESO, certain activities in the game will now offer you some unique, never-before-sourced cosmetic rewards from exploring certain areas or systems of the game.
    • As an extremely small chance from any fishing node during the Jubilee, you may find Outfit Style pages for the Trueflame Sword Replica. Yes, really!
    • Any Dolmen reward chest has a chance to contain a style page for the Staff of Worms Replica, in recognition (though not honor) of Mannimarco’s dark deeds.
    • Any World Boss in Vvardenfell has a chance to drop a style page for either the Sunna’rah Replica or the Barbas Wolf Helmet Replica, as seen during that chapter’s story.
    • Any Geyser in Summerset has a chance to drop a style page for the Ul’vor Staff, as seen during that chapter’s story.
  • The Impresario will offer cake furnishings for all cakes, including the new one, as long as you have the cake for the corresponding year.
    • She will ALSO offer new furnishings for the individual slices of cake representing each of the major cake visual styles. Each of these cake slices are a single Event Ticket.
    • She will also ALSO carry bound style pages for the Earthbone Ayleid armor style, as well as all three fragments for the Molag Bal Illusion Imp pet.
    • She also also ALSO carries the first and second of three total fragments for the next morph, the Master of Schemes personality. The third fragment will become available in later events for that quarter.

Jester's Festival 2024[edit]

March 28 — April 4, 2024
Jester's Festival 2024

The Jesters Festival returns! As always, you can complete the introductory quest to acquire a Pie of Misrule as a delicious memento treat. The first Jesters Festival daily you complete each day will award you a gold-quality Stupendous Jester’s Festival Box and 3 Event Tickets, with subsequent dailies granting purple quality Jester’s Festival Boxes that have smaller chances to give you The Good Stuff.

  • As with other events such as Witches Festival and New Life Festival last year, the experience bonus previously provided by eating the pie is now PASSIVE during the event. You don’t need to do anything to get it. It applies to everything and there’s no buff to track.
  • This year’s goofy pageantry includes style pages for the new Jester's Seeker's Suit outfit, so you too can dress like a slurpy squid-fella from scenic Apocrypha.
  • The Impresario will have all three fragments of both the Molag Bal Illusion Imp pet and Planemeld’s Master body and face markings, along with bound versions of fragments and style pages for the new offerings this year. She will also carry some older offerings for folks who still need to collect them, so be sure to visit her for her latest stock!

February 22March 5, 2024

Whitestrake's Mayhem returns to Cyrodiil and the Imperial City! This year, you no longer need to use the Scroll of Pelinal’s Ferocity to get your buffs during the event; all bonuses are now passive in the appropriate worlds while the event is running. Additionally, the previous experience bonus for killing players is now a general +100% XP earned in all Cyrodiil, Imperial City, and Battleground worlds.

Guilds and Glory Celebration[edit]

January 18 - January 30, 2024

What do Orcs, the Imperial Legion, a shady criminal syndicate, and a cult of murderous assassins have in common? They’re all celebrated in the Guilds and Glory Celebration! And maybe making a pretty solid Activity Finder group while they’re at it. The assassin is a healer, it’s all good.

  • This event focuses on the Orsinium, Imperial City, Thieves’ Guild, and Dark Brotherhood DLCs.
  • Your Event Tickets from this event come in a single batch of 2 tickets, awarded by completing any one of the following each day:
    • Delve and World Boss Quests in Orsinium, Hew’s Bane, the Gold Coast, or Imperial City
    • The Weekly Trial Quest for Maw of Lorkhaj
    • Killing and looting an Imperial City district sweeper or Coldharbour Elite Guard in the sewers
    • Killing and looting the final boss of Imperial City Prison or White-Gold Tower
    • Killing and looting the final boss of Maelstrom Arena
  • Various bosses, resource nodes, and daily quests in any of the target DLC zones award extra loot during this event. Like with the earlier Gates of Oblivion Celebration, event coffers work a little differently here. There are zone boxes, Imperial City boxes and dungeon boxes, all named in accordance with the location they were gleaned from.
    • Zone boxes are found by completing daily quests in their respective zones, killing delve and world bosses, public dungeon bosses, random enemies, treasure chests, safeboxes, resource nodes, thieves’ troves, and pickpocketing NPCs.
    • Dungeon boxes come from the final boss of Imperial City Prison, White-Gold Tower, and Maelstrom Arena.
    • Imperial City boxes come from Imperial City daily quests, district sweepers, and the Coldharbour Elite Guards of the sewers.
  • The first of these boxes each day is a Glorious quality box with higher drop chances of the good stuff. The first final dungeon boss of the two dungeons or the arena will offer a Glorious quality box of its respective type. You can earn 3 total Glorious boxes per day as a result, one from zone content, one from Imperial City content, and one from dungeon/arena content.
    • These boxes can contain the following items:
      • Crafting materials
      • Saleable treasures
      • Style items for Guilds and Glory overland or dungeon zone motifs (depending on box source)
      • Set items from Guilds and Glory overland or dungeon zones (depending on box source)
      • Imperial City key fragments (if from an Imperial City box)
      • Tel Var stones (if from an Imperial City box)
      • Companion gear
      • Furnishing recipes
      • Treasure Maps or Survey Reports
      • Motif chapters for Guilds and Glory overland or dungeon motifs (depending on box source)
      • Pages for the new Bristleback Hunter outfit style
    • Note that final bosses from Veteran Dungeons/Arenas drop two boxes to account for their higher difficulty. If one of these would be eligible for being Glorious, you’ll get one Glorious and one regular.
  • The Impresario will carry bound style pages of the Bristleback Hunter armor style for 5 tickets each. She will also have all three fragments of the new Molag Bal Imp pet and the first of three fragments for the Planemeld’s Master face and body markings (one morph that contains both collectibles when completed).

New Life Festival 2023[edit]

December 21, 2023 – January 9, 2024

The New Life Festival is back! Escape slushy highways and the stress of your workday by throwing mudballs at your friends.

  • Per tradition, the first New Life quest you complete each day will award you 3 Event Tickets, and any completed New Life quests will award you a New Life Festival Box.
    • This box contains an assortment of crafting materials and toys, along with a chance for motif pages, style pages, furnishings, or special charity writs (Deep Winter or Imperial).
    • Added to the Festival boxes this year are a chance to get a tradeable page of the new Morningstar Frostwear outfit style. If you’ve already earned a Morningstar Frostwear page that day, boxes can instead offer pages of last year’s Evergreen armor style.

    • Mud Ball Pouch
    • Nordic Bather’s Towel

    • Colovian Filigreed Hood
    • Sword-Swallower's Blade
