    Well, that's not enough time to get 20 tickets on 4 accounts (the accounts that don't have the Dawnwood Indrik). So looks like I'll be buying a bunch. I really do NOT want to wait another year.... And even if I wanted to, by then they might decide to drop the whole indrik thing....

    Thanks @LunaFlora!

    the Jester's Festival should give 3 tickets per day and 21 tickets in total for the whole event.
    so it should be enough if you only need 20

    so it should be enough if you only need 20

    I hope so - for some reason I was thinking it would only be 2 tickets per day.

    Thanks @LunaFlora!

    I agree on the prediction that Jester's Festival will start March 28 and run until April 4. There will be 3 tickets per day per account available, so a total of 24 tickets (21 if you're on NA and can't handle the stupid 5-hour window for the final tickets we have now.)

    Which is enough to get your Indriks. Don't buy any tickets; just be sure to get them all.

    Also - they have stated that Indriks are NOT going away. The Indrik vendor is permanent. So you don't have to worry about them "deciding to drop the whole thing".

    Note that my predictions are based on tracking all ticket events since tickets began, and checking what happened on the PTS with regards to upcoming events, and any other information that might have been leaked from official sources. (Last year, Jester's started a day earlier, so there was an extra set of tickets available - that could happen again.)

    Helps you keep track of your Event Tickets, so you don't miss any. Double XP on events is PASSIVE now!!

    And I can't get my access code ;(

    Gods, ZOS sure knows how to surprise us with goodies though, I give them that! Ah well, time for crafting!
    My wishlist for ESO
    I.Skills:
    >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

    >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

    >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

    II.Overland Mechanics
    >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

    >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

    >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

    III.CP 2.0
    >>Craft Tree development --> https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/594079/idea-craft-cp-sub-tree-ideas-constant-wip#latest

    III.Replayable content in overland
    >>dynamic pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

    IV.Geography
    >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

    >>Norg-Tzel - for Mara's sake, ZOS, REMOVE it from the list please!

    V.Other
    (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
    >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

    >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

    >>highlighting WBs that are being fought

    >>possibility to dye barding

    >>possibility to switch UI between guild bank<-->bank<-->guild trader

    >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

    >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want

    @ZOS_Kevin am I missing something here?

    When the event started, I popped a 150% exp scroll (+ my extra 10% ESO Sub exp) + the event +100% event exp giving me 260% exp per Writ,.
    I was getting around 243,000 exp per Master Writ, lovely thought I,
    Logged in this morning, did 1 Writ got 243k, did the exact same Writ and only got 60k (My 150% + 10% was up)
    I logged out then back in and did various Master Writs, still only getting 60k exp.

    What am I missing here, why did it drop from 243k to 60k??

    Thanks in advance .

    It pretty much has to have been enlightenment. 60k is I think more or less the expected number for ESO+, 150% scroll, 100% event.

    Enlightenment is 4x, and 4 x 60 is 240. So yes. Heh. Some adjustments for rounding.
