    Voroplasm pet - is this the same as with the Murkmire event of a year or more ago?

    Hope so - I only managed two of the bits then, hoping to finish it now.

    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

    The rng box as a final reward is demotivational. I look forward to writing "gratz" to the one person out of all my guilds that got something cool. The rest of us will make a massive 40g selling the 10 rubedite ingots (or equivalent) that dropped for us.

    I guess I'll re-evaluate after we see what the mystery reward is. At the moment, though, it seems like a pass. Sadly, I see nothing here that would prompt me to buy Blackwood for any of my alt accounts.

    The Elsweyr event had an rng box at the end. I seem to recall everybody getting the exact same cool stuff from it. I feel like the "RNG" part was among the low value items in the first few nested boxes. Once you got to the good boxes, it was all good for everybody.

    Thanks for the reminder; that is encouraging!

    Just to add to this, there were guaranteed items that everyone got, which were three attunable stations (clothing, BS, WW) and the target dummy and dragon treasure furnishing, in addition to epic quality set pieces (Crafty Alfiq, Darloc Brae, ??) and the rest were random items - but they were good rewards, including outfit change tokens (I got around 6 of those). So, while no guarantee to get a specific random item, the main rewards were guaranteed for everyone.

    As for the voriplasm pet, as others have said, it should be the one from the Murkmire event, which the PTS patch notes made clear during the event testing. I agree that the wording of it in the announcement article is misleading, since it says "new voriplasm pet."

    But then, the article also says, as others have also pointed out, that this event will be the only opportunity for the final mount fragment, while the PTS patch notes that came out the same day said that all morpholith fragments will be available during the New Life event, which is currently available for testing. I suspect that whoever writes these articles is not the same as those who write the PTS patch notes.

    Is the Wooden Grave-Stake memento coming back as well? I got the Voriplasm during the Murkmire event but didn't get a single grave-stake fragment.

    This^
    The article said nothing about the gravestake collectable coming back, yet it did feature a prominent picture of an Argonian with a gravestake. In fact, I'm almost certain that was the VERY graphic they used to depict that momento back in the Murkmire event. So, is this gravestake in fact coming back too and its absence from the article a mere oversight? Or no?

    These things were found in that "Nafilgaar's Chest" box. But you had to reopen it like 10 times to get all the goodies - each box had another box inside it for 10 levels. If you got the "Dragon's Treasure Trove" furnishing at the end, then you should have gotten these along the way.

    ZOS, please let us know if there will be a sale on Blackwood for the event.

    Also-- can someone please confirm that the global tally meter goals will be adjusted to reflect the fact that most Xbox players won't even be able to participate until Oct 6th at the earliest, when a possible fix to the current game breaking crashes is released? They'll be missing out on a full week of the event.

    I also was really hoping this would come back. It's one of the few event collectables that I haven't managed to finish.

    Blackwood is currently on sale at 50% off through the ESO website and the Microsoft Store on XB1. Sales on other platforms (steam, PS), will probably go live shortly if they're not already.

    I just came here to say loving the event and prologue so far. I am so happy that furniture is at the Impressario and I'd like to collect more morpholith parts also. The argonian who sends you exploring is fabulous and characters and voices amazing. The quasigriff is a lot better in motion than expected, I liked it static but in motion it feels really fast and has nice movement.

    You need to buy blackwood to enjoy the deadlands properly imo.

    Also if you don't own blackwood you get a free dlc off everybody who does.
    If you do not own Blackwood, then you dont get "free" DLC, even if community unlocks it. It is written in the articles::

    https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/bountiesofblackwood
    Blackwood players can claim all unlocked rewards from the in-game Crown Store

    https://www.elderscrollsonline.com/en-us/news/post/60931
    Once the meter reaches 100% or the event ends, we’ll add the unlocked rewards to the Crown Store (in a single bundle) for ALL Blackwood owners to claim.

    But you can unlock the dlc with eso plus without owning blackwood still?
