    Hmm....what do you mean in the title by "Drops"? Is that referring to harvest nodes? Also, would love a doubling of Tel Var :)

    Guess I won't have to wait until October for the next Double XP event to do all of the Master Writs I've collected since the last event.

    Double EXP does not appear to be working in BRP or skyreach, can you confirm that it is or is not supposed to affect these instances? I know a ton of us would really like to grind that CP up for the upcoming patch...

    Just for clarification:

    There are no event tickets during this event ?

    Edit:
    "Note that the Explorer’s Celebration doesn’t grant Event Tickets and doesn’t have its own unique quests, Achievements, or collectibles associated with it. Additionally, the Impresario isn’t available during this limited period. "

    It seems there are none, ok. And tbh I like it more. No feeling that I HAVE to login and I HAVE TO do "work" each day ;)

    This event is really great. Double XP really works!

    However, it would be awesome to see an active buff on the character sheet.
    Yet, you can see it in the experience numbers and how fast your skills are leveling.

    Overall:

    8/10 for the event.
    9/10 if active buff was added.


    Thanks again for the event,

    Gotta ask because it is normally mentioned: Does the increased drops apply to drops from completing crafting surveys?

    Not a bad event, but it feels a bit repetitive to me. Double gold, double nodes, double XP/AP, and this is it, in one zone (DLC/chapter event) or in all zones. What about double damage event? What about double healing received event? What about "astrologers proclaim week of Mehrunes Dagon, all player character fire based attacks have 100% burning chance"? PvP excluded, but PvP is already excluded with XP and PvE is already excluded with AP, so nothing new here. After all, what about double quadruple lead / furnishing plan / painting chance to get from all sources event?

    My Dunmer MagDK perks up. :smiley:

    It is a bit repetitive, but at least this one was planned, as opposed to "Oops, it's a bug that we can't fix just yet, so here, have an event until the fix is in" like the last explorer's event was.

    Ooooh! I'd love an event like that! Something different and quirky! That's what BethSoft used to be known for. I can actually picture all the dk's talking over 🤔🤣

    I love these!

    How about a "bait and bugs" event where there are double guts, insect parts, spider eggs, and increased chances for weird things to drop from unusual (but slightly justifiable) places:
    -an "inert egg" from one of those little snakes that you see in zone OR one of the random big spiders
    -a "second skin" from any snake-monster or critter
    -a "multifaceted eye" from any insect monster (Craglorn wasps, I'm looking at you)
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis
