    Will the quests only be available on particular days? Or can the quests be done whenever?

    An Imperial quest wouldn't really make sense as each quest takes place in an appropriate zone for that race, you can't really have a quest in cyrodiil!

    When do those daily quests reset? Same time as undaunted pledges I guess?

    Edit: Also, are there going to be bonus xps with this event?

    Huh. I did not pay that much attention when it was on PTS. Was this the case back then? Otherwise, I would not expect it.

    Is this starting at 10:00 meaning you will turn it on at 10:00 and then it will start at 11 or normal human start at 10:00.

    Cause, you know.
    Tl;dr really weigh the fun you have in game vs the business practices you are supporting.

    Yes. I believe most expected it would be based off that. Some kind of keg you drank from that gave increased xp for 2 hours. Drinking again would refresh the buff.

    Oh, gosh. You're all right. There is a keg that you drink from that will grant double XP. We'll get the article updated as soon as possible to reflect that (extremely important) bit of info. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

    Thanks Gina!

    Yes and yes. The recipes no longer drop, but you can buy them from other players, use them, make stuff with them, and consume the made stuff with no problem.

    #ImperialLivesMatter

    Well you had to pay extra to unlock the imperial race so maybe the imperial quest is available on the crown store for 500 crowns and drops and exclusive item like a food that gives the best stats. :grin:


    JK but the @Icy is right, there should be a Cyrodiil imperial quest. Kill 20 Imperials in PvP, they should drop a special item called imperial hearts that you can use to make a festive imperial eggnog for the holidays!

    Super excited for this event! Question: are there indeed dye stamps associated with the holiday, specifically the ones datamined here?

    e5f555a7b7eae123b6ce94c7d051aee6.png


    Are these hypothetical dyes dye-stamp exclusive, or will we be able to buy them for permanent unlock so that we can use the colors in the normal way we're used to dyeing items?
