Official Discussion Thread for "Celebrate ESO's Anniversary!"

This is the official discussion thread for the blog article Celebrate ESO's Anniversary!

Two years ago today, we opened the PC and Mac megaservers to everyone for Early Access. It was so exciting to see you all step foot into our world for the first time and experience everything ESO had to offer! Just over a year later, we unleashed ESO to the console world and launched on Xbox One and PlayStation®4. After years of [in-game] blood, sweat, and maybe a few tears, there is nothing more satisfying and thrilling than to see thousands of players enjoying the game we’ve created.

Be sure to check out the article linked above to see all the events we have in store for you. Enjoy!

    Does the xp buff remain for the whole week or just a small time period?
    Also does it include xp rewards from the daily random dungeon reward etc?

    How do you get the giveaways on social media? Do you just select a random person that comments? Then send them a code?

    Congrats, nice synchronicity seeing this posted the same day I get my 2 year forum anniversary badge. Congrats on such a fun and successful game. It isn't perfect, but that is something that is covered by other threads. Despite the ups and downs ESO's version of Tamriel is still a great place to visit.

    Awesome!

    Just out of curiosity, does the cake has its own animation when you use it?

    And can we expect more events like this but for Tamrielic holidays in the future?
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    ...but how many players want to see characters named ZOS_KaiSchober, ZOS_JessicaFolsom, ZOS_GinaBruno, ZOS_RichLambert, ZOS_AmeliaR, ZOS_CaseyCoffman, etc running around giving out candy or fighting in Cyrodiil? :wink:

    Two years later and still the game feels worse than it did in beta with regards to Cyrodiil performance.

    Curious to see if this effect with Jubilee Cake will be an additive or multiplicative stack with Psijic Ambrosia and/or XP Scrolls. The difference being:

    Additive = 1 base XP + 0.5 Psijic Ambrosia/XP Scroll + 1.0 Jubilee Cake = 2.5x XP earned
    Multiplicative = (1 base XP + 0.5 Psijic Ambrosia/XP Scroll) * 2 Jubilee Cake = 3.0x XP earned

    The extra 50% would be a massive difference!

    After the quest is complete, you'll receive your reward – a Jubilee Cake, which will be placed in your Mementos collection.
    You and anyone in your group will be able to enjoy the cake and receive a 100% XP buff. This buff stacks with all other XP buffs!

    How long is the duration of the buff, and how long is the cd on the momento that gives the buff?

    Ive been playing since it launched and I still have yet to hit half way to cap much less the cap. Remember not everyone is able to live in the game. So a lot of us would really appreciate the xp boost. Not just new or low level characters.

    If you get the "cake voucher" from the Crown Store during the event period, but don't complete the quest immediately, will the quest still be available after the end of the event as long as you still have the voucher?

    1. Get voucher
    2. Complete quest
    3. Eat cake, 100% xp buff.

    Questions.

    How long does the buff last i.e. only during the event, from 7:30pm EDT on April 4, and conclude at 7pm EDT on April 10 or is it a set time bonus i.e. lasts 12hrs before rebuff required (I always have room for cake).

    The reason I ask is if I log on and eat cake on an alt then log off can o comeback and level them with the buff after the event or should I eat my cake and binge level one character over the full week?

    Anyway thank you for two enjoyable years and have a slice of digital (fat free) cake on me!!

    It says it goes into your mementos slot so I assume its like the other stuff and can be activated whenever you wish. The duration I dont know but it wont go away if you log out. You can just reactivate it.

    My guess is that the buff only lasts for a set amount of time once you activate it, not for the whole week. Why else would they make it share-able within a group? A whole week of XP-stacking sounds pretty tasty though! Glad to see they're doing an anniversary event this year.
