    Same recipes as last year or something new?
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.

    Well done for making the XP buff a memento. Last year the loading screens to get near to Breda were the most difficult daily quest!

    Oh good, this isn't in the boxes like I was fearing. I still have an apartment stuffed with Jester's Festival ones!

    Interested in the lamps, I wonder if any of them will provide the warm ambient light I've been looking for in my manor.

    Looking forward to hunting the new mementos!

    What about the Pint of Belching memento? 6 runeboxes were added to the game last year, but only the mudball and bath towel dropped last year. Of the 4 remaining, 3 are listed in the article. Is the Pint of Belching something you're saving for next year?

    Thank you, @ZOS_JessicaFolsom & Team for making Sword-Swallower's Blade, Juggler's Knives, and Fire-Breather's Torches into mementos.

    The only thing that makes me sad is this: "Each daily quest has you travel to a specific location to participate in the local traditions of each of Tamriel's nine races."

    I imagine if they had included imperial and sent people to Imperial City; there would be a lot of tears of "Forcing me to go to a pvp zone."

    There were two hoods that also dropped last year, so 4 collectibles last year. So, in addition to the returning 4, there are three new ones. So, that's more than 6 already.

    I was hoping that they would create new quests, since Breda mentioned last year in her dialogue that the festival traditions changed each year. But, even though I was hopeful, I still expected them to be the same due to the achievements. I'mm assuming it would've been too much to keep the old ones so that new players could get the achievements, but have new ones for players who got last year's achieves.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what lights will be available. I'm assuming these will be lighting that's already in the game. I wonder if it's any of the lighting, or if it's a curated list. Or, maybe they are new ones? That would be cool, but when it says "a wide array" I'm assuming we'll just get ones that are already available in-game. But maybe they're ones we can't currently craft? We'll find out soon enough.

    I have a whole stack of the roguish potions that I NEVER use, so not looking forward to getting more of those - to me they are just something that will clog up the rare loot table.

    Still looking forward to the event, as I have a new Warden who doesn't have the achieves nor the motif or recipes.

    Judging from the last event and the definition of "curated list" and "wide array" - I'm going to expect maximum two different lights that are fairly common. Anything more and I will be pleasantly surprised. ;)

    Oh right, yes, I forgot about the hoods! Eight runeboxes, 4 introduced last year, 3 more confirmed to drop this year too, and 1 in limbo.

    This is the one with the mud balls...

    Oh not again :'(

    Why do you insist on equipping the trolls?

    “Oh it’s just a bit of fun...” ........... no.......... it’s not......

    I love this game, I love the quests, the world, the dungeons. I love vet content, I love helping new players through their first group content. However. Like many people I have anxiety, I don’t pvp because that kind of player to player angst rams my heart rate up so high that it could quite litteraly kill me. It’s a primal response. It’s the same reason I will never race you to a node, it’s just not worth the stress. Dungeons and mechanics don’t set it of because the primitive part of the brain knows it’s not another person, it’s just a machine. But another player is a diffrent matter.

    Normaly it’s irrelavent, as they cannot touch me, stop me or affect me but these mud balls and their irritating little jig are diffrent. They may be meant to be fun but they get used all to often for malice, just like those nasty lot that duel around crafting stations when there is a whole dam continent out there

    We can’t use dye stations without getting plastered with mud that looks rather more like poo to be honest, and having previously worked in sanitation yes I do know the diffrence :/ Which daft lump in the design department overlooked that one? In the bank, doing writs, even strolling around looking for crafting mats... splat... splat splat! Why isn’t this stuff instanced like the animation for the crafting bags? So I see my charecter looking at me and you see them rummaging in a bag. Best of both worlds...

    Oh well, time for a month away I suppose... :(

    I may personally find the crimmus season dull and overdone, but gosh darn if it isn't Men'Do's favorite time of year. Gifts for everyone!! So glad to see the old consumables turned into mementos, too!! My only wish is for them to be usable in Cyrodiil so I wouldn't have to carry around the consumable version so much. I love giving people a show with juggling knives or swallowed swords after a hard fight.
