    Okay so the maths is as follows, let's say "NPC" gives 1,000 XP.

    Player A eats a slice of cake (100%), drinks an Ambrosia (50%), is an ESO+ member (10%), is using two rings of Mara (20%) and has full PvP alliance bonuses (15%). They now have a 2.95x experience multiplier and so "NPC" will give 2,950 XP which means 3x as fast as "normal" levelling.

    Which is pretty incredible! This will make it doable to hit 3-4 VRs per hour in the sewers.

    Now Gina, if only the cakes stacked with each other. :smirk:.

    Yes, apologies for the delay (been out sick with a wicked fever!). The XP boost you receive from the cake will last for 2 hours, but can be re-used infinitely throughout the week. If you eat a slice of cake before the buff expires, it will not stack with itself; it will simply refresh the buff. It can also be shared with all your group members, meaning if someone in your group doesn't have the cake, they can still eat yours to get the buff.

    Also, once you get your cake, it can be used by all characters on your account since it's a Memento.
    Hey @ZOS_GinaBruno, hope you're feeling better!
    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, so you can still get the cake (even if you can no longer use the cake afterwards)?

    No, you'll need to complete the quest during the event week in order to receive the cake, otherwise you'll just have a little paper voucher. Don't worry, the quest is relatively short!

    Correct - you will need to buff up before you step into any PvP area.

    This is very bad design.

    It is impossible to leave Cyrodiil and re-enter it every two hours due to enormous queues. Not mentioning the IC with additional horse trip...

    Edit:
    Next year please, make it Diablo 3 way - plain permanent exp buff for everyone, withous quests and interactable pve-only objects.

    May still keep quest and Memento at place, for memories.

    Maybe it's intentional so that you can't just grind IC sewers or Cracked Wood Cave non-stop all day for a week.

    All XP boost restrictions will be lifted during the anniversary week, so you'll be able to stack everything (just not with itself).

    @WhiteCoatSyndrome You will have to grab a "ticket" of some kind from the Crown Store and that will start a short quest you need to complete to get the cake. The cake will be added to your "mementos" section in Collectibles - it doesn't sound like there will be a recipe or a "consumable" cake.

    Normal XP gains for grinding in PVE are lower than normal XP gains for grinding in some specific PVP locations, so maybe limiting the XP boost in this way (ie. forcing you to leave Cyrodiil every 2 hours to reapply it) is intentional in order to offset that.
