    It seems that something is just bound to happen whenever they do something.

    First char got the anniversary boxes with daily writs... second didn't get it on three daily writs so far. Am not going to do the dailies(including other chars) until this is fixed.

    Thank you for looking into this!

    It seems that if you have not done this year's memento quest, you do not receive boxes from dailies, even though the box shows in the quest window as a reward! Do the yearly cake quest and you get the boxes.

    I am pretty annoyed, as handed a few in to work this out.

    this is not correct - I did the cake quest, activated the cake, then did the dailies - no boxes received

    I also think it maybe lazy writ crafter opened them and RNG gave me crap. But I did not see anything but normal writ stuff in my bag.
    I got rid of all addons and when I turned in today's on the same character I got all boxes. And special loot that I did not see in first turn in. For what that is worth.

    I had to go and do the cake mission event, now the boxes are being received from handing in quests. Even though my first 4 characters did not eat or do the new quest (just my main) Very strange that this toon could not get the event boxes/ could not get event boon...

    It seems that every character need to do the event cake mission for it to work. ( even though my first 3 after main had not doe it and they got the boxes. For some reason my 4th toon had to do the mission to get the boxes to work)

    Boxes are dissapearring as well, PC EU.

    Found a small solution - UI reload.

    But if you log out from the character whos boxes disappeared and log in again, the UI reload will not help, they will not reappear.

    As I've said before, that is NOT true. I got 5 boxes from 2 pledges and 3 guild dailies before eating cake. Stop claiming this.

    Delivered my first 7 writ dailies in daggerfall right after eating the new cake and got all of my Jubiliee gift boxes

    Next, I travelled to Vivec city to pick up and craft the next set of writs and when I started to deliver them there I noticed I didn't get the Jubiliee gift box. So travelled back to Daggerfall city and delivered the last few writs there and got the boxes from the remaining writs.

    I'll log onto another character and eat the cake in Vivec city next to the writ turn in point and see if I will get my boxes then.

    I did the cake quest on my PC/EU account. Turned in crafting writs (yesterday's and today's) and got boxes fine.

    Moved over to PC/NA account. First 3 characters turned in crafting writs (yesterday's and today's) and got boxes fine. I DID NOT do the cake quest.

    4th character did not receive an anniversary box when turning in their first crafting writ. (It showed up in the loot window though, just not in inventory)

    5th character received boxes as normal.

    So, it's definitely character specific.

    I'm on PC NA and experiencing this issue. Just turned in 2 days worth of writs, Summerset dailies, Wrothgar Dailies, and Morrowind Dailies. No boxes from any of the writs and only a couple from the dailies.

    Yes you are right. But I could not take Boon from cake. from my 4th Toon. Cashed in 14 daily writs before I realized I got nothing. Then I went to go and do the cake event and now it works. It seems as though there is no rhyme or reason why that character needed to do the cake event. In the past you only needed to do the quest on your main and use the momento for your other characters and there was no issue with getting the Anniversary boxes. Whats your MO?

    I know the lazy writ crafter has an option to auto-open containers received from writ turn-ins; is it possible it's also auto-opening anniversary reward boxes, which is why people aren't seeing them in their inventory?

    Is it linked to alliance of characters? LIke is the one that couldn't use the cake or get boxes a different alliance than the character that did the cake quest? Just trying to see whether there are any patterns that might be useful for a workaround...

    Definitely not the case here, I turned that option off - I just didn't even get a loot notification for it.
