ESO holds special events all the time. Anniversary events, DLC showcase events, etc. Currently there is a Pan-Elsweyr Celebration offering bonus loot, event rewards… the kinds of things playerbases in games go crazy for.
And since they are showcasing Elsweyr and Dragonhold DLCs, if you don’t happen to own them, they are on sale for 50% off. What a coincidence!
I dropped the ball on a previous event and didn’t get enough event tickets in time to unlock a fancy mount. I am not planning on screwing up again. I’ve planned this out and I need 12 more event tickets. Since you can get 2 per day, I have just enough time to get those tickets before the event ends Aug 3.
The great thing about these events is the large crowds that will pursue the tougher daily quests. For this event the tougher dailies are world bosses and dragon slaying.
My world boss daily for Dragonhold was to kill Iratan the Lightbringer and collect a few items. There are so many players waiting for him to spawn that when he does appear, he melts in seconds. Sometimes you spend more time waiting the collect the other quest items than you do fighting the boss. You definitely spend more time waiting for him to spawn than fighting. And if you space out for more than 5 seconds (ok maybe 8 but definitely less than 10), you might not land a hit and then you get to wait for the next respawn…
That’s fine with me. If I wanted a bigger challenge I can wait until the event passes and get stuck trying to solo or perhaps small-group fight a world boss.
