    You can do all 9 quests whenever you want, but can only complete them once daily.
    What about Imperials!!??? Don't they get a quest????

    An Imperial quest wouldn't really make sense as each quest takes place in an appropriate zone for that race, you can't really have a quest in cyrodiil!

    Well you can, but there will be .... challenges to questing there. o:)

    The new Stalhrim crafting motif, is it a crown store exclusive item?

    Or can it drop like the Skinchanger motif from the rewards of the new life festival quests?

    Crown store exclusive, like the Grim Harlequin motif was.

    Unbelievable. I THOUGHT ZOS had learned from the debacle of the placement of the questgiver for the Cake week. So for Halloween they had the questgiver come to you wherever you were and it worked perfectly. So WHY did they go back to a questgiver in a single location? I still can't even get the quest because I can't get the questgiver to show up through all the other players, many of whom are spamming loud and flashy spells just to make it harder. REALLY ZENI WHY DID YOU DO THIS?????????????????

    Game design team and the server team have not seen each other in months. The game designers don't know that the servers cannot handle creating that many instances of Eastmarch.

    Si finally got it and now on my 2nd quest of Castle Charm Challenge I'm at the Old Goat Inn with about 50 other people and the vast majority of us CANNOT get the performance kit to work. Yeah, this is SUPER fun ZOS.

    It worked for me when I went into quest items and clicked on it manually. Hope this helps.

    There are timeouts and crashes because of festival. If the crashes/timeouts happen in Eastmarch, the toons can't get back. Logging to character always times out. Put more resources to Eastmarch.

    When they designed these quests did NO ONE stop to think how many players would be mobbing all these areas and the effect this would have on the functionality of the quests themselves?

    i believe they did think about it...but didnt care. Its the kindof problem that will "work it self out". They will simply weather the storm of the early rush crashes and rage. More and more people will crash, more and more people will be more strategic about what time of day they try to do the quests, ie real late night, early morning. Or people will just give up on it for a few days then start doing the quests. So in essence, it fixes it self.

    That is a HORRIBLE design plan if so.

    Hey guys, we're actively looking into how we can help alleviate some of the high ping that you're running into, though please understand that some crowding at the start of an event is to be expected.

    Oddly enough, half an hour into the event the ping went back down even with the same amount of people, at least for me.

    We actually expect that ZOS will anticipate this and either change game designs to not make it happen, or change the server so that it can support the game design. I get that you plan for average, and this is way above that, but nothing about this should be acceptable to people inside ZOS. You should be actively working to avoid stuff like this.

    I can't even return to eastmarch now, been kicked from the server due to being unable to connect 3 times in a row.

    Lets think...megaserver technology, so 10's of thousands of players on a single server. Bright idea no1 - lets send all players to the exact same spot every few minutes as they complete a quest. Stupid, stupid design decision...unless you are testing how to improve Cyro ( >:) )

    Wait so if I'm Imperial then do I just don't get anything? I'd still like the XP boost though...

    for me it's unenjoyable to stress to get the xp boost and drop from any activity to go on the spot activating a boost , i could go and get a blessing somewhere now that i'm on it .. gamebreaking , because it's stupid to level a char and not take this xp buff but it's a lot of headache for me to repeat that every time .It make's my interest for the activity i was dooing go away just because the long loading screen .

    We all appreciate ZOS for the xp boost and the fest goodies , but like we'd have to spend a part of the gameplay time dooing only this go activate xp boost and get back to what i was dooing . kinda lame really

    just my opinion

    Just a small idea - maybe next time you could place an NPC in every alliance, cause we all know from Cyrodiil how much the servers like it when everyone is in one spot. But after beeing dropped from server three times I was now able to port away from Eastmarch. I guess it's time to wait a bit, I'll get my motif eventually. And that motif looks really nice.

    You can do all of the quests regardless of the character's race.

    Can you tell us if the xp boost from this event not stacking with xp pots or scrolls is intended? Had worked with previous xp events so why not this one?

    Can anyone give firm confirmation of this? Surely we're not getting both the non-stacking and the buff removal on death issues again?
