    "Spoopy" event? :D

    Anyway, do we get the Dremora skulls once per boss type per day per character or only once per boss type per day?

    Arena Bosses drop Dremora Motif pages for Bows and Legs

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Just to clarify, will any arena boss drop the Dremora Plunder Skull, or does it have to be the final boss?

    @ZOS_GinaBruno FYI, the link in the article that is supposed to lead to the October Crown Store showcase is redirecting to last year's witches festival article instead.

    I'm excited about the Dremora motifs. However, the means to obtain them is not making them available for everyone. Forcing players to complete trials and do arenas is a fairly poor model, in my opinion. I'm not saying that I can't do that myself, but there are others out there that cannot do either one. Either due to bad computers/internet, or they just don't have time to do much in the ways of spending an hour or longer inside a trial just for a chance at getting one of two motifs along side with everything else they need to do in the day. For those that won't be able to get those two to four pages, now they're having to spend a ridiculous amount of gold just to buy from a Trader "because it's new." trade motifs based on the content they do/don't like to do.
    Fixed it for you.

    There will be an overabundance of whatever you need from whatever you do/don't like to do, just as there is every year. People that want to crank out X content will do so and vice versa. And, there won't be absurd prices on pages after about 3 days in, because people will be practically willing to give them away to make space.

    It promotes content diversity. (People will group up for speed normals all day long to help others out) And if gives people some choices in what they complete, without requiring an unrealistic number of completions.

    Just because you don't like the way something is doesn't necessarily make it wrong...

    As I think this is asking, is the “once per day” limitation per character or per account?

    It's only from the final boss, but can be any difficulty.

    Thanks. Damn, thought I had a shortcut there.

    This is my concern as well. It is rather unfair to the newer players. Even if they manage to get in a Trial or Arena etc. to get their own drops they could be subject to some good ol' fashioned elitist harassment.

    Maybe the content type should only influence drop percentage instead of determine them.

    This only benefits the high level champions.

    P.S. coming from one.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Any chance of that in the future more furnishings and perhaps more furnishing recipes may be added to the plunder skulls/etc.?

    I like what we have so far, but this holiday could have some really neat furnishing plans/drops related to the event. e.g. a mad scientist's workbench, or zombie pets.

I've guided a bunch of first timers, including a lvl 8, to the final boss of HRC after losing a player to bad internet connection. I can (probably) get the rest of you through a trial.

    Absolutely everything about the update to this event is a dream come true! New memeno, new motif (!!), no need to turn into a nusty skellimunster to get the XP buff, the ability to get up to 7 Dremora Skulls every day by mixing up your content type... it's brilliant!

    Awesome! If I can get my connectivity improved between now and then, I'd love to do that. My best endgame characters in some order are:
    • Altmer sorcerer -- he's duoed 20+ different normal dungeons. It's been a long time since I've played him without pets.
    • Breton sorcerer -- he's healed WGT, of course with a pet.
    • Breton templar -- he's healed WGT in vet mode, and a bunch of non-DLC HMs. I'm not experienced officially DPSing with him, but I'd do fine.
    • Dunmer magblade -- I'm less experienced on her than the others.

    I can parse 15K+ on any of these characters without trying very hard. I'd have to buckle down to parse 20K, and rarely do.

    I don't have trial gear, but I could easily bring Worm Cult, Sanctuary or, perhaps only on healers, SPC and/or Earthgore.

    Good enough?

    That's perfectly fine. Your characters sound more than good enough for normal trials.

    You can defeat each individual type of boss and be guaranteed a Dremora Plunder Skull once per day, meaning you can acquire up to seven each day. Should you defeat the same type of boss again after already receiving your Dremora Plunder Skull, you’ll receive a regular Plunder Skull instead. Dremora Motif pages can be traded, so get ready to take on Tamriel’s monsters!

    Is the daily cooldown per character, or per account? Is it a 20h timer, similar to the one for RFTW mail guaranteed geode or horse training, or does it reset at a certain hour each day?
