    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?

    I looked back at my posts when this was on PTS. I wrote...

    "My experience is that there's a 20 hour cooldown on your account for each dremora plunder skull type."

    So, it was one per account per day on a 20 hr reset timer.

    Nice to know. I was thinking how to spread and schedule tasks between characters in order to get the most out of it, achievement and drop wise.

    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?

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

    Will Maelstrom Arena last boss drop it too?

    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!

    I agree, although I won't be doing any trials or arenas, so I'll have to buy those, but hey, my choice. I just don't like that content. But, it does encourage people to do more than just camp a delve boss or a dolmen. And, a motif page is guaranteed in each Dremora skull, so I do think there will be enough pages floating around for me to find the ones I'll need to buy. If anyone is worried about prices, wait until closer to the end of the event and they'll be much cheaper than early prices.

    Also, not having to turn into a skeleton was introduced last year, but it's still great to have that feature again. I'm also looking forward to that memento, though I wish it were an interactive furnishing instead.

    "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?

    I caught that also and had to laugh. It’s good to know that I’m not the only one who does that and the ZOS devs and writers mash the wrong keys once in awhile :) Sounds like a fun event and our guild is planning certain days and activities to get as many people through as we can.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom What does it mean that you can earn one Dremora skull of each type "each day". When does a new "day" start? 24 hours since the last time you received that skull type? 20 hours since the last time you received that skull type? A specific time? If it is a specific time each day, what time is it? 10 AM EDT, so every 24 hours from the start of the event? Or 2 AM EDT, to coincide with the reset of daily quests?

    Some specifics here would be appreciated.

    Quest wise, from the PTS notes: Quests that grant Event Tickets during holiday events will now refresh their ability to grant Event Tickets at the same time that Daily Quests become available again.

    From someone else's direct experience, they indicated the Dremora skulls were on a 20 hour cooldown, much like mounts, shadowy supplier, and RDF and RBG dailies.

    You are right. I'm looking for the same answer.

    Maybe this doesn't help but I just tried and it seems that you can get those 7 per day per account not character. Got the Delve one with my main char and then went to the same delve boss with my secondary char and got just the "normal" skull. Tested also with other delve and same thing again.

    I hope you guys have nice event hunting those skulls and tickets!

    Sounds like a bug to me. There's normally a 3 minute cooldown on getting Plunder Skulls from bosses.

    There doesn't appear to be a cooldown this year. Not sure if that's intended or not. But I'm not seeing a cooldown.

    I don't think they bothered on the regular plunder skulls, since it's mostly cosmetic/furnishing stuff.

    I suspect they're counting on the boss respawn timer to sort of dictate the cooldown by default. And if that's not enough, inventory space will certainly tell you when you've reached a good stopping point.

    The wording used is ambiguous: 'you' could refer to either character or account. That's not 'making it harder', that's just reading what is actually written and recognising that, semantically, there are two possible and equally valid interpretations.

    Up to seven each day, pretty much implies it caps as seven each day. And 'you' in this case, refers to you, the reader, not the reader's avatars.

    Save the argument about multiple accounts and I'll save the counterargument about needing one account in the first place.

    A quick character swap followed by a delve boss kill would clarify even further. Again, making it harder than it has to be.

    In this case, the lack of additional stipulations is the key to the correct interpretation.
    If I order lunch at the local diner, I don't need to explicitly ask if the meal comes with a new car. The omission gives me the answer.
