    Cool 🙂

    But please, please can you fix the glitch that prevents entry to Markarth from the outside?

    PC EU Subscribed

    Currently you can walk out of the zone but the wayshrine is the only way in. The Bangkorai cart has no E button, the Blackreach gate and the Reach overland path from Western Skyrim both have an E but it’s greyed out.

    Even if you cannot fix this can we at least have a reply that you are aware of this issue

    My guild was hoping to do a cross continent trip once the new zone appeared ☹️

    Does this also mean double exp gain for the scrying/excavation skilllines, and double excavation drops?

    Just asking, since it is an explorer event and scrying/excavation is a form of exploration.

    An event that rewards players for the time they play the content they enjoy - without putting pressure to get event berries - very nice.
    #1 tip (Re)check your graphics settings periodically - especially resolution.

    Could you also pretty pretty please fix Scathing Mage? There are multiple direct damage AoE attacks that are unable to trigger it, still. Most notably: Daedric Tombs, Unstable Wall of Elements (end of spell explosion), Pulsar (Ele. Ring works, as described in pts notes), Stalking Blastbones.

    Ever so slightly boring. Surely there are plenty more fascination ways to make such an event.
    Experience is relatively useless because you hard capped Champion Points and gold drops are very low to begin with.
    Auri-El is my lord,
    Trinimac is my shield,
    Magnus is my mind.

    Why only CET, though? Maybe I don't want to convert time from that either

    Well, based on where the servers are located. Of course you can't mention every single time zone, but as far as I can tell, outside of the U.S. GMT/CET+x is typically used, while americans have several "standalone" time zones.

    Does the double gold include plunders from vet trials? And sounds like a cool event for some resource and xp farm, thank you!

    It should, vet trials are taking about twice as long as usual with all the crashes people are experiencing. Double the rewards and it would at least cancel out that one part of the problem.

    Doubtful. Skill lines that have their own way of leveling, independent of regular XP, never benefit from double XP events afaik.

    Still getting single drops on farming nodes.
    No 2x being applied here.
    Can ZOS please explain how they see "Double drops from harvest nodes (not fishing!)"

    [Edit] .... so far in farming, the only explanation I can think of is that there is no actual doubling of the results from farming a node but that the "farming" action is resolved twice and results from both actions are added simultaneously to inventory.

    That is not "double" that is "twice".
