ESO Event: Zeal of Zenithar

The ESO Event: Zeal of Zenithar returns to Tamriel! Earn tickets and other bonus rewards by working hard and completing your Crafting Writs!

The Zeal of Zenithar Event is returning to the world of the Elder Scrolls Online starting this Thursday July 27 at 10 AM EDT and running through August 8 at 10 EDT. This event will be focused on crafting writs with awesome rewards and prizes.  Below are the details from the official post:

To get started, pick up the introductory quest “The Unrefusable Offer” from Amminus Varo at the Belkarth festival grounds or acquire the free quest starter from the Crown Store. Having trouble locating Belkarth? Don’t worry; just head over to the nearest Impresario tent and take the nearby portal. Upon finishing the intro quest, you unlock the daily quest, “Honest Toil.”

Event Details

During the event, the first time you complete the daily quest each day, you receive a Zenithar’s Sublime Parcel box as a bonus reward. Each subsequent completion of the Honest Toil quest during that same day rewards you with a Zenithar’s Delightful Parcel box.

In addition, you can earn Zenithar’s Delightful Parcel boxes by participating in the following activities:

  • Completing the introductory quest “The Unrefusable Offer”
  • Completing any Master Writ, per discipline, per account, each day
    • Subsequent Master Writs of the same discipline won’t provide further boxes until the daily reset
  • First daily Crafting Writ, per account, completed each day
  • Each time you defeat a world boss while grouped with a player who is in at least one of your player guilds
  • Each time you complete a world event while grouped with a player who is in at least one of your player guilds

You also have a chance to earn a Zenithar’s Delightful Parcel box when conquering each round of a group-based arena challenge while teamed up with a player who is a member of at least one of your guilds. Additionally, the final round’s reward chest contains a guaranteed parcel.

Other Ways to Earn Rewards

Alternatively, if you prefer to earn your rewards through less-than-honest means, you may discover parcels scattered across Tamriel by pickpocketing citizens and looting strongboxes or thieves troves. Why not let others do all the hard work for you?

Within either parcel box (Sublime or Delightful), there is a chance to receive the following rewards:

  • A tradeable outfit style page for the new Kwama Miner’s Kit outfit style armor
  • A tradeable outfit style page for the new Ashen Militia weapon style
  • Durable crafting materials, provisioning ingredients, alchemy reagents, runestones, or a motif style item
  • Crafting boosters
    • Chance to drop a gold-tier booster or a research time scroll
  • Furnishing or provisioning recipes
  • Repair kits, siege repair kits, or a small chance for an Impresario Group Repair Kit
  • Treasure Maps, Survey Reports, Imperial City vault keys, Companion gear, or a random currency pouch
    • The random currency pouch can contain either gold or Tel Var stones; there is an extremely small chance that you discover a jackpot that allots 100,000 of the associated currency!
      • The earnings from this pouch, jackpot or otherwise, are unaffected by any form of currency boosts

Both boxes can contain these goodies, but the Sublime Parcel boxes provide a higher chance to contain the more valuable rewards.

Global Modifiers

These boxes won’t be the only bonus rewards you can enjoy during the Zeal of Zenithar event. Throughout the duration, all players benefit from the following modified global in-game effects:

  • Wayshrine travel costs are reduced by 75%
  • Repair costs on vendors are reduced by 50%
  • Crafting inspiration gain from all sources is increased by 100%
  • Vendor prices across Tamriel are reduced by 10%
    • These include:
      • Vendors that sell items for gold, AP, or Tel Var stones, including the Golden Vendor
      • Houses purchasable for gold


Event Tickets

If you participate in the Zeal of Zenithar event, you also receive three Event Tickets the first time you complete the Honest Toil quest each day. By the end of the event, you can collect a whopping 39 tickets! But don’t forget: 12 Event Tickets is the maximum number you can carry at any one time. If you happen to earn more while already at the cap, Zenithar will penalize you for your hoarding by not rewarding any tickets!

After you’ve gathered enough Event Tickets, head on over to the Impresario’s tent and exchange them for any of the following rewards:

  • All three Passion Dancer Blossom pet fragments
    • Chartreuse Lily Petals
    • Enchanted Silver Flute
    • Mystical Sheet Music
  • First Passion Dancer Garment costume fragment
    • Bolt of Indigo Cotton
  • Bound style pages for the Kwama Miner’s Kit outfit style armor
  • Bound style pages for the Ashen Militia weapon style
  • Group Repair Kits
  • Companion Guild Commendations
