    I'm happy to see that Sow parts aren't locked to the golden boxes this year. Still wish that the Stick mounts would be returning, though. Then again, there might still be hope for an April 2-4 appearance.

    Literally me when checking prices for Scrap of Minstrel's Cloth all year on TTC.

    I'm glad that this was added to all other legacy items.

    Is the Impresario selling bound fragments for last year's Minstrel Daedroth costume or this year's Seeker Suit? Or both?

    (The article says Minstrel Daedroth but doesn't mention Seeker Suit, which seems odd.)

    Yeah, didn't realized the image upload wasn't working correctly. I've escalated to Vanilla, our forum platform. So hoping to resolve this. It seems like something got messed up during last week's update.

    @ZOS_Kevin, is the indrik selection going to change on April 1? I think so, but just confirm that if you can?

    According to the thread listing the Q1 events, Jester’s festival is the third and final, so the available Indrik berries won’t change until the following event (Anniversary). Also, the Dawnwood and Spectral Indrik berries are specifically listed as being available during the Jester’s event.

    The Indriks selection should rotate after this event.

    That's what Maitsukas said in another thread, I just don't remember that being the case in the past. I'm not complaining though!

    Is there any chance of the minstrel cloth fragments dropping from festival boxes, or will they only be available with event tickets? I know they're not listed as potential drops, I'm curious whether that's accurate. Thanks.

    When this was on PTS she was selling both, Seeker style pages and "Scraps of Minstrel's cloth" for the daedroth costume.

    You either seem to get far too many items or far too few ones, not a nice middle amount....

    Yeah and it's the best part of the Jester's fest. :)

    I don't think I can do it anymore if I've already completed the achievement though. Which is a shame. Ayrenn and Jorunn and Emeric all need a little more humble pie, imo.

    So Cadwell's Armor Pack was in the crown store every year since 2019, but you decide not to bring it back this year? Also the article says that Cadwell's Cat is in the crown store, but it's not. Been waiting all year for the Armor pack. Incredibly disappointing.

    Having the achievement shouldn't prevent you from using the pies from your quickslot. If you just happen to be aiming your cursor at Emeric or Ayrenn, who's gonna stop you? :tongue:

    The tooltip that pops up when you acquire the pie of misrule does not seem to have been updated, as it refers both to the pie being in the tools section of collectibles, and to the pie being needed for the XP boost.

    "However, unlike previous years, you will no longer need to obtain or use the Pie of Misrule to take advantage of the 100% XP buff. This bonus will now be shared passively to all adventurers participating in Tamriel’s wackiest holiday. That said, it doesn’t make the pie any less scrumptious!"

    I'm not seeing this Bonus XP information on the in-game announcement. I've seen some guildies confused about this, so it'd be nice to see this attractive feature communicated in-game in some fashion. The announcement screen seems like the best place IMO.

    Someone help me out here...... please :)

    The Sovereign Sow..... I have been playing this game for ten years and I have completed the Jester's Festival quests all the while it has been running, but I have always had the Sovereign Libations fragment missing. It seemingly NEVER drops.

    Am I doing something wrong? Or am I just plagued by the worst case of decade-long RNG ever?????
