    Are the motifs going to be random chance or can you use gems to get them like last season? If it's the latter then it seems some people don't know how to do it.

    It's actually a bit sad. ZOS' description was clear enough.

    Seriously, I agree. Now we are just trollin'. Any non-player, non-npc is on the table.

    Show me where ZOS has said that, and we're done.

    It's right there, in the FIRST LINE, of the original announcement. Since at no time, EVER, in the history of ESO has another player-character been described as a "minion" or "monster", it doesn't take a genius to figure out they literally mean any minion or monster. [Snip]

    No one ever suggested it referred to player characters; but as has been asked before, what qualifies as a "monster" or a "minion"? Are wolves and other animals "monsters"? They would not normally be described as such, hence some of the initial confusion. What about non-hostile creatures in the game (someone brought up mudcrabs)? Some of these could be considered monstrous, but now we have the statement that we have to kill "enemies", and non-hostiles don't really fit that description. So perhaps not all "monsters" are "enemies", but if not, then what qualifies?

    Unless we are playing in a game where some creatures literally have identifier tags that label them as "monster" or "minion", then there is ample justification to ask for some simple clarification on the definitions being used. To borrow your phrase, "it doesn't take a genius" to see that there is a lot of ambiguity in that first line, and ambiguity is where loopholes thrive. You may not care, but I personally don't want to miss out on something because of a loophole.

    There is a very simple and safe solution, kill one of each.

    Personally? I killed giants today. And a couple of wolves because they were in my way.

    My basic take on it is an NPC mob that fights back, when you kill it, it usually counts.*

    Noting that most fight back, however the 1 hp critter insta-kills count for the new weapon type kill unlock,
    So I would guess most rats, spiders and other bugs may count as targets too.

    * Unkillable Guards and Slaughterfish are the usual exceptions.

    I agree with blackbird. When I first read it I was wondering if I had to go kill the mobs that drop "Monster masks" or any mob in game.
    Glad to find it is all Mobs. I don't understand why some people are being over analytical, talking about squirrels and ***. Just log on, do your writs and go collect some nodes, killing a few mobs on the way.

    Simply kill any enemy that isn't another player character and you're good to go.


    Do guards at enemy keeps count? I ask only because the UTC time messed me up and it turns out the event started Friday night for me. Night time is when I PvP. When PvPing we (my guild and I) tend to blow past the skeletons and wovles that stand in our way to the next keep we're trying to take, so I didn't kill any "monsters" Friday night and I was only able to log in *after* the day ticked over into Saturday for me.

    Of course I made sure that I killed one red mob, now, before I start my night in Cyrodiil, but I just would like some clarification on "Anything not an enemy player." I just want to make sure I've dotted my "Is" and crossed my "Ts" here.

    I think what they should have done was added BA motif to the list of non gem items along with the 3 rare mounts imo, would have been better to make more $ that way

    I know how unlikely it is to happen, but I really wish zenimax would consider adding the treasure hunter costume to this season's crates or the store. The last time it was available was over a year ago and I only purchased the game recently, so never had a chance at it.

    If it makes any difference, my upcoming decision on whether or not to purchase ESO plus will be heavily dependent on whether or not I can get it.

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_GinaBruno I can't see "Dremora's Kiss Purple Lip Tint" on your list there. Is it not meant to be purchasable with Crown Gems? "Casual Plague Doctor" also seems to be missing.

    Edit: Turns out "Dominion Cult Body Tattoo" from the list was never a thing, either.

    I somehow missed this paragraph the first time reading the article...
    Tamriel's covens of witches and warlocks spent all year crafting necromantic objects of dark delight for the season of the Witches Festival. The sale of these occult oddities and twisted treats are usually restricted as contraband goods, but in honor of the Witches Festival they may be freely sold or given as gifts. (Please note that the merchants of Tamriel will not accept responsibility for curses bestowed or injuries sustained through the use of these arcane artifacts.)

    Does this mean items we get from crown crates tomorrow that are normally bound can be traded or given to other players during the witches festival?

    I was after the Sheogorath costume and a copy of the Bouyant Armiger motif. I got them.

    I also want to get a Skeleton Horse. It looks like I'll have to buy it with gems, but I'm not going to until I know for sure that it has a saddle on it.

    This is the crown store preview:

    Later discovered that Skeletal Horses do have saddles, bought one and they look great :)
