    So this is droping on PS4/XBox before 1T does. So on PS4/XBox there will still be low level world/dungeon/delv bosses dropping skulls, up until the 1T patch next week? On the other hand, those servers will be down for a day or more during this event FOR the patch...

    I have this question also. Are console players missing out and getting pushed to the back again? I don't want to be missing 2 days or more of the event due to downloading the patch. What is the reason for making it the 13th and not the 18th with the console being on the same level as pc

    The reason why it coming out on Oct 13 is because the Tamrielic Month October is Frostfall. The Tamrielic holiday,the witches festival, starts on the 13th of Frost fall hence why it on that date.

    I am really exited to see how the first event will be :smile:

    I have a question though, I don't know if you guys know the answer. Will I be able to get the item today at midnight? (EU time, Spain) Or do I have to wait until NA? Thanks :smile:

    Khajiit is curious - this one thinks that may be dangerous somehow for khajiit ...

    What qualifies as a 'boss'? Delve big monster, dolmen big monster, dungeon really big monster, outside in the world big monster, the head of the mages guild, the prophet, the lady in the bank in Daggerfall?

    Just because all of the above seem quite bossy to this one.

    Welp I found some treasure already... that is one Halloween-y looking door if you ask me!

    Found near Steamlake Encampment

    Called Olyve's Brewery when you go up to it.

    Will the Motif crafting materials of the festival motif be farmable forever?
    Or are the style materials gone once the festival ends?

    I'd like to know this as well.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Thanks for the info. Will the crown store offering during this event be the only chance to obtain the Grim Harlequin motif? Any chance that it will show up in-game at a later date?

    And can you tell us how many crowns it will cost?

    I'm going to guess 'Crown Mimic Stone' or get lucky and get one from deconning existing gear.
