The hotly anticipated ESO Heroes of High Isle Event is almost here! As with previous big chapter events, the ESO community comes together to grind out the progress bar and earn prizes together! There is a secret prize this year if we reach 100%, let’s all do our best to get the High Isle Pathfinder achievement!

Explore High Isle Together
The Heroes of High Isle in-game event kicks off this Thursday, September 29 at 10:00AM EDT, and runs until Tuesday, October 11 at 10:00AM EDT. During the event period, you can come together with your fellow players and work with them to unlock amazing rewards by earning the High Isle Pathfinder achievement.
To earn the Pathfinder achievement, gather an intrepid band of explorers (or go it solo) and explore High Isle by visiting all six of the unique striking locales in the zone. No, we won’t tell you where these specific locations are, but your Achievements menu might have hints! In addition, all those who have already earned the High Isle Pathfinder achievement prior to this event can still contribute to the meter’s progress. We’ll update the meter on September 29 to immediately include all users who already completed this achievement.
Every day, we’ll update the meter found on the Heroes of High Isle page with the community’s progress. The more explorers who complete the Achievement, the quicker the community meter will fill up, increasing the rewards. Once the meter reaches 100% or the event reaches its end, we’ll add the currently unlocked rewards to the Crown Store (in a single bundle) for ALL owners of the High Isle Chapter to claim for free!
Here’s the rewards you can unlock at each stage:
- 33%—Oak’s Promise markings
- 66%—Plant Yourself emote
- 100%—Ascendant Hoard Box
- 100%—Appleback Salamander pet (ESO Plus members only)
- 100%—Bonus mystery reward to be revealed during the Legacy of the Bretons Autumn Event Stream!
The Ascendant Hoard Box includes a host of reward containers within containers that grant you a heap of in-game items, including:
- Undaunted Plunder and Undaunted Keys
- Tel Var Stones
- Outfit Change Tokens
- Crafting writs
- Riding Lessons
- Transmute Crystals
- High-level companion gear
- Including legendary-quality companion jewelry
- High Isle item sets
- Unattuned Crafting Stations
- An Ascendant Lord Statue
That’s a lot of great in-game goodies you and your fellow players can earn, just by exploring beautiful High Isle!
Celebrate the Systres
While you complete quests and explore High Isle, you can also earn bonus rewards from the zone itself. Pick up the Heroes of High Isle introductory quest titled “The Island Tour,” from the in-game Crown Store or Impresario tent to begin.
During the event period, the first time you complete a daily quest in High Isle (or the Dreadsail Reef trial weekly quest instead) you receive a Society of the Steadfast’s Largesse Coffer. This new reward box has a chance to contain some of the following items:
- Guaranteed chance for random crafting materials
- Guaranteed chance for a High Isle treasure
- Guaranteed chance for a style item for High Isle motifs
- Guaranteed chance for a High Isle overland set item
- Guaranteed chance for companion gear
- Ember or Isobel must be your active companion
- Chance for one of the following:
- High Isle furnishings
- High Isle furnishing recipe
- High Isle Treasure Map or Survey Report
- High Isle motif page
- Small chance for a tradeable page of the new Oaken Order armor style
For each daily quest you complete after the first, you earn Society of the Steadfast’s Munificence Coffers, which contain similar items but offers a smaller chance to contain the rarer rewards.
You can also acquire Society of the Steadfast’s Munificence Coffers through the following methods:
- Delve and World bosses
- Dreadsail Reef non-final bosses
- Dreadsail Reef final boss
- Volcanic vents
- Basepop enemies
- Opening treasure chests
- Opening safeboxes
- In clickables
- Psijic portals
- Thieves troves
- Crafting resource nodes
But that’s not all! Both the High Isle daily quests and the weekly Dreadsail trial quest offer DOUBLE their regular non-event reward boxes. In addition, during the event period, the zone’s harvest node yields are increased, and world bosses, public dungeon bosses, trial bosses, and delve bosses throughout High Isle ALL drop additional rewards.
Impersario & Event Tickets
During the Heroes of High Isle event, you can earn up to two Event Tickets per day the first time you complete a High Isle zone daily quest. In total, you can collect 26 tickets by the end of the event. Just remember: You can hold up to 12 Event Tickets at any one time, so if you earn more while already at the ticket cap, you’ll lose them!
After amassing your trove of precious Event Tickets, head on over to the Impresario event merchant and exchange them for these enticing rewards:
- All three Soulfire Dragon Illusion pet fragments
- Hallowed Hourglass Basin
- Illuminated Dragon Scroll
- Kvatchian Incense
- All three fragments for the Daggerfall Paladin Outfit
- Blessed Rubedite Enamel
- Captured Dragonflame
- Sanctified Metalworking Tools
- Bound style pages for the Oaken Order style
- Group Repair Kits
- Companion Guild Commendations
Additionally, the Impresario’s colleague, Nenulaure the Indrik Vendor, has the following items available for purchase with Event Tickets:
- Nascent Indrik Feathers
- Onyx Indrik Berries
- Mossheart Indrik Berries
- Ebon-Glow Indrik pet
- Sapling Indrik pet
Explore High Isle and the Systres Archipelago, visit its six striking locales, complete daily quests, and shut down volcanic vents to earn bonus rewards. Don’t forget, when you and your fellow explorers complete the High Isle Pathfinder achievement, it brings all of you one step closer to claiming the event’s most-valuable rewards.
