    Will the Sovereign Sow Fragments be tradeable?

    Echoing my appreciation that the event was announced well in advance and that the pet fragments are guaranteed drops. This is the way it should have been for the Murkmire event.

    Plus, 24 tickets is great for an event that only lasts 8 days (and I know, not all days are full days - I'm just using the term to refer to the number of times we're able to earn tickets).

    PTS testing experience says no. Princess Pig Fragments went directly into Collections. It was also set up so that you never get duplicate fragments. I got a different fragment each day, and once I had all seven I didn't receive any more of them.

    Sigh. They did this with the Murkmire event, and what that meant in practice was that eventually, no one saw them again because RNG created duplicates and they were tossed before even being presented.

    I know they said "Guaranteed drop within the first Stupendous Gift Box you open each day!" in the press release, but this is ZOS. I doubt that this means what anyone outside of ZOS thinks it means. I figure that it means they will attempt to give you one, guaranteed, but if you already have that piece, you won't see it.

    That's not what happened on PTS. I got a new fragment each day for 7 days. No duplicates, and no days without a fragment until I had them all. I don't believe that there was any RNG in operation. The probability against that happening with RNG in operation is far too high.

    Thanks for the info @RaddlemanNumber7 :)

    I still wish we had a physical item to trade to guildies/friends for dupes. Also, it sounds like if you want to get your Sovereign Sow you should be able to get all 7 pieces by doing 1 quest per day and the event is technically 8 days (if you catch the last one after reset and before event ends) so it sounds like it will "work".

    what about armor style pack?

    The entire armor motif was only available by purchasing "Cadwell's Kitchen Style Pack" from the Crown Store during the Jester's Festival 2019.

    Working out nicely. Really glad that for people who have finished last year's collectibles, they can just get all their tickets and the one new collectible piece from doing one Jesters quest of their choice.
    Thanks for doing that ZOS.

    The mount "ghostly Spectral Indrik" looks nice, but since I don't do events I'm assuming I won't have a change to acquire it.

    If you want a friend, get a dog.

    @Alienoutlaw You're on the wrong event. The current event is the Jester's festival. The 2020 cake won't be available until the Anniversary event which starts April 2nd (also when the current event ends).

    I think I have seen it in a game a few hours ago and it is on the site too (in the Featured tab).

    Is there really any major benefit to doing the missions for King Emeric and Jorunn Skald-King?
    They don't give any event tickets, just "fizzlers" and party favors. Queen "Aryenn" gives the goodies, far as I can tell ..?
    I'd like to get an Indrik mount because all I have so far is the stock horse; I could upgrade to a better horse but want something a little more exotic.

    You get the tickets for the first quest you do each day, regardless of which one it is. So it just depends on who you start with. If all you care about is the tickets for the indrik, then you can call it good with one quest each day. If you do all three, you'll get three of the stupendous reward boxes which contain other loot (including the chance to get more than one pig fragment per day).

    Thank you for making the princess pig quest easier to do in terms of picking up the apples without getting a bounty. :)

    Oh yeah, I noticed that change right away. I went from getting about bounty almost every time, no matter how careful I was, to getting it only once, with the same level of being careful.
