The Elder Scrolls Online Event Celebrates Its 5th Anniversary

By Rebecca Smith, 15 days ago
Not only is The Elder Scrolls reaching its 25th anniversary this year, The Elder Scrolls Online has just hit its fifth anniversary since its release on PC. To celebrate the occasion, there's an in-game event running right now that offers a variety of rewards for players who take part.

5th anniversary event

Players can begin the event by claiming the free Jubilee Cake Voucher quest starter from the Crown Store. Then they need to find Chef Donolon who will give players a quest to find the ingredients needed to bake the Jubilee Cake 2019 memento. Once a slice of this cake is eaten, players will get a 100% XP buff that will last for two hours, as well as two Event Tickets. After that, players will earn two Event Tickets for the first time they eat a slice of cake each day. Event tickets can be spent on a variety of rewards, including Luminous Indrik mount berries, Outfit Style pages, and the Shimmering Indrik pet.

Over the first four weeks of the event, the game will highlight different activities for players to complete for special rewards. Every daily activity completed will earn an Anniversary Jubilee Gift Box that contains rare crafting ingredients (including Aetheric Ciphers), recipes, and sometimes a Motif Chapter. The event schedule can be seen below:

In a couple of month's time, players can look forward to the new "Elsweyr" expansion that continues the Season of the Dragon.

The deep dive explores the Khajiiti homeland, takes on dragons, and peeks at the new trial that will arrive with the expansion:


The second panel took the time to answer player questions about the upcoming content, as well as changes that will be arriving for the main game:
