    Please correct announcement error?

    "The Event Ticket timer resets at 1:00AM EDT each morning."

    You got it right that Daylight Saving Time started in most of the US last weekend, but daily reset is fixed and doesn't change with time changes, so it's 2:00 AM EDT.

    Thanks! Also, MANY THANKS for such early announcement! I really appreciate it, so I can get the addon update done soon! <3

    “Daylight Savings” is an instance of irl absurd and should be abolished! :lol: (Not a criticism of your post of course you are absolutely right!)

    Looking forward to my first Jester’s Festival! :smiley:

    Will it also 1am, or will it be 6 hours ahead of the US time?

    6 hours ahead, if that's when your crafting and other daily quests reset.

    Oh no, not this again!!

    In the name of sanity can someone please design an add-on that will override the animation after some troll hits you with a pie for the hundredth f***ing time!

    🤬😡🤮

    Just let me do my blasted writs in peace!!

    As someone with an anxiety condition this game is normally a balm for the soul. But being hounded by those pies and those cursed mudballs, it just makes me want to SCREAM!!

    Yes, but it's typically back-to-back with the anniversary event, so brace yourself for 3+ weeks of non-stop eventing.

    We'll get this updated, thanks for letting us know!
    So, uh...

    When you say:
    "Take note that not all share your finely honed sense of humor, and some might object to having a pie thrown in their face - crazy, right?"

    I'm not quite sure how to take that.
    All joking aside, maliciously using emotes is still not okay and if you ask somebody to stop then they should stop.

    Thank you for the clarification, on both accounts!

    Ah. Thanks. This will be my first Jester's Event so I didn't realize it went shorter than other events.
    Will also be my first anniversary event as well so, all kinds of new coming at me.

    Thank you for releasing this over a week in advance!

    A brief follow-up request:

    The announcement for the Jester's Festival links to this guide on the Monolith pet and its morphs:

    https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/guides/eventtickets

    It seems this event ticket & rewards guide hasn't been updated since January 27.

    We now know both of the events listed as "TBA" for the second and third fragments of the skin, and the first has already passed. The other is of course Jester's.

    On a related note, those on the PTS got to see the subsequent morph, the Firewalker personality. Since that information is already publicly available (see, e.g., UESP), perhaps it could be added to the guide above as a teaser for the Anniversary event?

    That's what I did just ask a guild mate. We met and killed each only 10 times. Pretty easy to get and do.

    Stay safe and enjoy the journey :)

    Well, yes, yes it is supposed to be fun. What's not fun is having people refuse to stop spamming emotes and then they and ZOS call you "crazy" for just not understanding the emote spammer's finely honed sense of humor. I'd like ZOS to do better.
    While someone is offended by in-game interaction, the real offence happening in chat which based on language and place of living.

    How can i ask someone to stop when they have me on ignore or are in offline mode?

    Use /say. If they don't acknowledge, then report the player, let ZOS decide if their decision to ignore communication is a defense or not.

    Also note, that like Skywatch during New Life, event areas are going to be full of pies and petals. ZoS may be more lenient at the quest turn in Under the tent versus the outfit station. It's ultimately their call, so be aware of where you are.

    I'm curious as to why some of the items only available in the Stupendous boxes weren't shifted to grab bags similar to the ones with the Witches Festival.

    Yeah, I just got a Jester's Banner in my Stupendous Box. Because everyone needs more of those...
