The Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood Celebration Event allowed players to earn rewards from Thieves Guild and Dark Brotherhood DLC content. Specifically, double drops were available from group bosses, delve bosses, and regular nodes in the Hew's Bane and Gold Coast zones. Defiled Whiskers drops from Maw of Lorkhaj bosses were also doubled. Rewards for completing daily Heists and Sacraments were increased for the duration of the event. Players would receive two coffers for completing a Sacrament or Heist, and one of those was always of the highest possible reward. The two DLCs were available at a discounted price, and both Collector's Bundles temporarily returned to the Crown Store at a discount.
The Jester's Festival 2018 allowed players to complete various daily quests for a Jester's Festival Box. Each Gift Box contained a selection of items related to the Jester's Festival. This included unique recipes, furnishings, or collectibles. Several new items were introduced in 2018, including the Jester's Scintillator memento and more. Players were also able to gain two new titles, Lord/Lady of Misrule and Royal Jester.
The Four Year Anniversary Jubilee was identical to the previous anniversary, including a new 2018 Jubilee Cake Memento, XP buff and Anniversary Jubilee Gift Box. One notable addition this year was the chance to obtain rarer motif chapters previously only available in Vvardenfell, Horns of the Reach dungeons and the Clockwork City. In addition, this year introduced the chapters from the Worm Cult Style which can only be found in the Anniversary Gift Boxes.
Morrowind Last Chance Event
The Morrowind Last Chance Event took place to promote the fact that pre-orders of Summerset included free copies of the soon-to-be-retired Morrowind Chapter. During this event, all owners of Morrowind could obtain a free Dozen-Banded Vvardvark pet by logging in, to be delivered by May 29. Dwarven Crown Crates were also temporarily brought back to the Crown Store, including the option to purchase individual items from the Dwarven Crate season using Crown Gems.
Psijic Vault Crown Crate Preview
- The Psijic Vaults: for millenia the mages of the monastic order have been storing items rare and mysterious in their subterranean strong rooms, some strange, some dangerous, all valuable. Now, it seems a time breach was open in these vaults for an unknown period, spilling Psijic Vault Crates out into the wider world, and their weird contraband is beginning to appear on Tamriel's open market. They're going fast, because a Psijic Vault Crate might contain almost... anything.
This was a short preview event for the Psijic Vault Crown Crate Season. During this event, players could log in each day and kill any creature or enemy in order to earn a free Psijic Vault Crown Crate, to be delivered on June 20. Up to three free Crates could be earned in this manner. Psijic Vault Crates became available purchase from the Crown Store one day later, on June 21.
The Midyear Mayhem event gave players bonus rewards and XP while fighting in Battlegrounds, Alliance War, and Imperial City. These bonuses include double AP, unique collectibles, and special reward boxes only available during Midyear Mayhem.
To celebrate the three-year anniversary of the Orsinium DLC release, a celebration was held in Wrothgar. During this event, the rewards from both Wrothgar daily quests and Maelstrom Arena were doubled. Regular nodes found in Wrothgar also provided double the items. Both the DLC and the Orsinium Collector’s Bundle was discounted in the Crown Store.
To celebrate the anniversary of the Imperial City DLC, a celebration was held in the Imperial City districts, Imperial Sewers and both Group Dungeons. During this event, numerous drops were doubled including: Tel Var Stones, Key Fragments, items dropped by Trove Scamps and Cunning Scamps and all boss loot.
The Summerfall event allowed owners of the Summerset Chapter to participate in a special event activity that involved visiting all ten of the Striking Locales across both Summerset and Artaeum and unlocking the Summerset Pathfinder Achievement.
Each Summerset Pathfinder achievement unlocked by a player (counted once per account, per server) contributed to a running total, which was updated each day of the event. When that total reached one of three thresholds, a new reward was unlocked: the Psijic Mascot Pony pet at 33%, the Psijic Escort Charger mount at 66%, and the Grand Psijic Villa house at 100%. All goals were achieved before the event ended, and players who earned the Summerset Pathfinder achievement, as well as anyone who purchased Summerset and logged in at least once before October 7, was eligible to receive the rewards.
The Witches Festival 2018 was similar to the previous year's event. In addition to previous rewards, 2018 introduced the new Dremora Motif and Dremora Plunder Skulls alongside a new memento, style material, treasure items and furniture items.
The festival was also introduced a new currency called Event Tickets, and was the first opportunity for players to begin working towards obtaining the Nascent Indrik mount by purchasing event-specific Indrik feathers with them. The first feather available was the Emerald Indrik Feather, which was available to buy from The Impresario.
Clockwork City Celebration Event
The Clockwork City Celebration Event allowed players to earn double drops from crafting nodes, reward boxes from daily quests, and bosses in the Clockwork City zone. Two Event Tickets per account per day dropped from Group Boss daily quests in Clockwork City, with a total of 24 Event Tickets were available by the end of the event. The Clockwork City DLC was also on sale in the Crown Store, alongside a temporary free trial of ESO Plus to access the DLC completely for free.
The event was the second opportunity for players to work towards obtaining the Nascent Indrik mount by purchasing event-specific Indrik feathers with Event Tickets. During this event, the Gilded Indrik Feather was available to buy from The Impresario.
The Undaunted Celebration Event allowed players to earn Mysterious Reward Boxes by completing random Group Dungeons from the Activity Finder. A Mysterious Reward Box had a chance to include consumables, collectibles, style pages, costumes, pets, mounts, and even homes. An ultra-rare jackpot prize was also available which granted 130 mounts at once, including mounts from previous Crown Crate seasons.
The event was the third opportunity for players to work towards obtaining the Nascent Indrik mount by purchasing event-specific Indrik feathers with Event Tickets. During this event, the Onyx Indrik Feather is available to buy from The Impresario.
The New Life Festival 2018 was similar to the previous year. During this event players could obtain a 100% XP buff, an ice-themed skin and the opportunity to acquire a collection of New Life Festival-themed items. A notable feature of the event was the introduction of the New Life Gift Box — special reward containers that granted players various items.
Players could receive one Event Tickets for the first event quest completed each day, with a total of 21 possible tickets by the end of the event. The event was the fourth opportunity for players to work towards obtaining the Nascent Indrik mount by purchasing event-specific Indrik feathers with Event Tickets. During this event, the Opaline Indrik Feather was available to buy from The Impresario.
