    If this is going to be the last Indrik evolution, is there any need to store 4 feathers in the collectibles? Or will storing feathers after having all evolutions and the base indrik be a waste of event tickets.

    Please consider adjusting this and making the 2019 berries available again. I have an incomplete indrik cluttering up my collections!

    Also, it would be nice if all the pets associated with the various indrik's evolutions would be brought back in the impresario shop

    The Crimson Indrik will be ESO’s final Indrik evolution, so don’t hesitate to snatch up this striking red mount!

    Final ? As if no more Indriks ever ? So Elder Indriks Online is over ? I certainly hope so... Would be a huge relief tbh. :D:joy:
    We do not have any plans for new Indrik variations in the future or to bring back the 2019 evolutions at this time.
    I just saw that post lol :D

    Why is it just 2020's berries for New Life 2020? Seems odd considering it's the last Indrik variant and it would allow people to complete incomplete berries obtained during previous events? With 19 days of New Life it would be enough to complete the odd ones left + complete Crimson

    Yeah, I've collected literally all of them but they should be brought back so everyone has one last opportunity to get them. I'd venture to guess there are countless people who've only just begun playing that never got the chance.

    And i'm sure there is profit to be made by selling tickets to the wealthy collectors so I'm surprised it's not already on the table...

    Indeed... but ZOS never did that in the past. There was always some event, some point in the year where you could get certain item(s). If this is true, than it's really strange... to have an incomplete collection of fragments just like that.

    Glad to see motif pages not locked into a grab bag this time. Not that the grab bag was a bad idea for catching up on collectables, just bad for achievement items. You can use it for the old berries for those still wanting to collect the berries they missed going forward.

    They did return all the 2019 berries during last year's NL festival, so the only players who would have 2019 fragments had the opportunity to get them last year.

    I'm rather disappointed that they didn't put all the old mementos (that don't stack and can't be banked except in a guild bank), into grab bags for purchase at the Impresario (similar to Witches Festival). These are already worthless, and while I managed to sell them last year at dirt cheap prices, I'll probably end up just destroying them this year. I don't have the space to hold onto them to sell later for more gold.

    I hope they are more creative than just another type of mount broken into fragments, with various evolutions.

    Did anyone do the Imperial quest in PTS back in the day? And if so what did it entail?
    Shortly after the formation of the Ebonheart Pact, a Nord woman was given a tour of the Tribunal Temple. When later asked about the experience, she seemed upset. Suffice to say, the Dunmer were not pleased to hear this, and thus they inquired further.
    "Well," the Nord frowned, "the priests were very angry and unwelcoming. They kept shouting things at me like "you can't drink that mead in here!" and "somebody stop her, she's running naked!" and "we can't catch her; she's covered in grease!""

    Aw, that's unfortunate. Would have loved to be able to get the first one since I missed it. Especially since that's the one that matches the Jephrine Paladin style from earlier.

    Thanks for the update!

    Hopefully they come back at some point. I started late 2019 and have a couple berries but no actual mount ><;

    On one hand it's sad since I've been looking forward to this event in hopes to get 2019 indriks since 2020 started. On the other ZOS just saved me the money likely blown on crowns to get enough tickets for four more indriks, so ... yeah.

    (Will be left with 46 / 49 purposeless tickets lying around after getting last berry and pet, though. Style pages can be bought with gold and gathering feathers again seems pointless now.)

    If you have nothing more to spend tickets on, might as well buy style pages and then leave some for the next event. Can't keep more than 12 anyway.

    That's assuming that you already have a nascent indrik and a full set of feathers to make a new one after evolving.

    I hope that Brenda's mead is brewed extra-strong this year. It was more of a year to obliterate from memory than to celebrate.... :p

    Yep, they sure did. The announcement last year gives no indication at all that it would be the last opportunity for 2019 Indrik berries. In fact, the way it is phrased in last years announcement "ALL previous Indrik Berries (!)" and the absence of any information to the contrary, made it quite reasonable to believe that the catch up opportunity would come again. During the event last year, players were making choices about how to spend tickets with incorrect information.

    But the berries so far have been framed as a year long type collection. So it isn't surprising that this years festival only has berries from this year. And isn't this the first year where there were berries from a previous year? So there really is no precedent here for this yet. This year is setting the precedent, that follows still from what they did last year.

    But really, get the items during the events when they are available. It's as simple as that and perfectly doable. Worrying about missing items from years ago isn't really useful. There are items from before I started this game that I would love to have, but they aren't available anymore and I wouldn't expect them to be available anymore.

    @ZOS_SarahHecker

    So no more berries and Indrik's after this event means the following:
    1. If you do not get the 2020 berries during this event you have lost out of ever completing them.
    2. If you are missing any berries from before 2020 you have lost out of ever completing them.
    3 The four Nascent Indrik Feathers are also never to be seen again after this event.

    I still just want the stupid pet indrik from 2019 that matches the Onyx Indrik. I got the tickets for it last year, but didn't get my butt over to the Impresario in time and she despawned before I could buy it.

    I'm also missing the pet that matches the Onyx Indrik from 2019. I don't remember what happened there, but it's the only Indrik I'm missing out of pets and mounts...

    I'm a little sad to see Indriks end, to be honest. I know most people are tired of their variations, but I liked them. Plus I would have loved a purple one.

    I also hate that I'm probably going to be wasting tickets in this event since all I need to buy is the last berry and the pet. I guess I'll just have to decide what to blow the rest on, or I just won't participate by the end of the season.

    Nice to see one brand-new quest. Thanks.

    Since this is the end (finally) of the berries and Indriks it would have been a goodwill part on ZOS to allow all the previous berries and pets available to those they want them.

    Be safe and have fun :)
