    So what actually moves the progress meter? The act of uncovering something?

    So... if you are a member of the community and playing ESO, but do not have the Greymoor chapter, IF the event succeeds, will you get the house?
    Nope. That's a chaper promotion event, so you need to have that chapter to benefit from it.

    I think you are right about only excavations in Skyrim dropping the boxes. I forgot that we would be digging all over Tamriel and only the world boss, delve etc..in Skyrim would count. Still, I hope they at least drop with excavating in Skyrim.

    I got a greympoor motif from excavating in western skyrim and boxes even dropped from nodes for me.

    The fact that they are not counting previous progress on digging means I will probably not be able to contribute much at all to the event and I really want to help get that free house.

    I have only got one lead so far from a treasure map during the event and I play for many hours each day. I rarely get leads anymore. Getting the first one is usually easy but after you get a few of the same one they just don’t drop anymore.

    There is also the conflicting requirements of getting all the Greymoor motif pages by staying in the new zone and the scrying. I have 12 Snow Prince chairs now. If I go outside the zone (which I have for hours to try to get a new lead, with no luck) then I don’t get any Grey Host loot boxes that *might* give me motif pages.

    See the problem now?

    I'm personally content with the few purple loot boxes while I do my dailies on a few characters, so I've been going to the starter zones to dig. I'll scry both my green and blue treasure leads, run on foot to the blue, then the green (so I get that blue lead again) and I'll gather mats and kill things as I go for the furnishing leads, of which I've gotten a few, and repeat. It's a little boring, but I'm digging up a lot.

    Great plan, unless you have already done all of the freebie green, blue and purple leads for all zones and a lot of the other ones as well (as I have and many others have).

    I dug up all the maps furnishings and couple of things I already had leads for. That's it, my job here is done.
    Now, please, can Sovngarde style pages drop rate upped a bit? I farmed boxes for two days on my main and after that just ran dailies on other characters, and I still have only one page :'( Drop from the first, gold box should be guaranteed, at least

    Hey all,
    I've been trying to travel to solitude to pick up my dailies and each time I am left in the ,"this may be an unusually long load time screen". I understand the advertisements for this event have worked perfectly...
    Where is the preparedness for this outcome.
    I have tried loading in several times and with each I am left on the ULLT screen for 10m+. I waited 30 minutes on one attempt as I was, luckily, able to land in Shadowfen and join GC.
    I've reset. I've cleared Cache...
    Please fix this.

    Are there any prerequisites for Solitude dailies? I have lvl 6 DK and NPCs just won't spawn for him, but I think that I got lvl 7 on my necro from these dailies. Is there something I might be missing?

    Edit: it seems that characters started with Greymoor must complete The Gathering Storm, I did it and NPCs appeared

    @Nairinhe I don't know for sure on Skyrim daily prerequisites but I believe I read on a thread that there is indeed a level 7 prereq. I recall speculation about that rather odd number being appropriate so new chars that started in Skyrim would not be immediately overwhelmed with quest markers everywhere.

    @AcadianPaladin that's weird number, also Senchal dailies were available, while Solitude ones weren't, so it must be some very very specific limitation

    Care to share how style pages drop is? For me it's absolutely abysmal - helmet on the first day, then helmet again a bit later, and that's it. And I'm at 20+ purple boxes per day :'(

    It is not possible to have "done all" the freebie blue and green leads, as they continue to repopulate.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    I meant that I have done enough to unlock the codex info for all those. Do you really feel like I should have to do more than that?

    I also did 13 of the green one in Western Skyrim to level up before I realized there were leads in other zones.

    I have a level 6 toon (both skill lines) working on level 7. Between the three zones I have tried, I get green and blue leads , and no purple leads after the blue. I have had purple from chests, and they worked. I thought purple leads comes with level 5. Am I incorrect or is this a bug?

    After the community has unlocked all three rewards (or the time runs out), all Greymoor players can claim the unlocked items from the in-game Crown Store for free. Note that only players who own the Greymoor Chapter can claim the rewards.

    From there page so I guess if you don’t have Greymoor you don’t get the prizes though who know with Zos these days

    The purple leads marked as "treasure" are apparently only meant to drop once, account wide, while the other purple leads - usually furniture - are about as rare as they drop from various sources ( which are not direct digging). So if you stick to just digging, you will most likely be stuck to green and blue - only.

    Agree on the purples being account wide. I have a L10 Antiquarian but for the event have strictly been taking a different character to L7 for the glowing chest perk. She's gone from L0 to L6.5 doing absolutely nothing but repeating green/blue in Artaeum and did not ever see a purple lead at L5.

    I also appreciate the new motifs and furnishing plans that are making their way into guild traders now. I did not have much luck myself even though I got tons of purple loot boxes but it will help lower the prices of ones I have to buy.

    The treasures progress page says we can get the rewards from the store.
    I'm not finding them in there. Maybe I failed my perception check, or just aren't looking in the right place yet.
    Can anyone help me find them?

    Looks like they expired on October 15th, 2020 if anyone else is looking it up and wondering.
