Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls Online has a surprise for its players and the Imperial City Celebration Event promises true celebrations for everyone. Namely, the developer will be giving out Imperial City DLC game packs at no charge .
Bethesda scheduled the Imperial Celebration Event for Thursday, 05 September 2019 at 10:00amEDT, and it will run until 16 September.
Normally, you'd need the Imperial City DLC game pack or have access to it via The Elder Scrolls Plus membership, but Bethesda obviously want everyone to take part.
"Lucky for you, beginning in tandem with the event, this DLC game pack will be completely free! That's right, from now on (and for the foreseeable future), you can acquire the Imperial City DLC game pack for zero crowns from the DLC section of the Crown Store", they wrote.
This gets you access to the Imperial City zone and story, which includes the sewers, city districts, the White-Gold Tower and Imperial City Prison dungeons.
The Elder Scrolls Online players will be exploring, doing quests and fighting throughout the Imperial City, with ample opportunities for different rewards. Bethesda listed the following:
- Double the amount of Tel Var Stones dropped from all monsters
- Double the chance of picking up either the Stonefire Scamp pet or the Soul-Shriven skin
- Double the amount of Key Fragments
- Double the amount of materials dropped by Trove Scamps
- Double Tel Var Stones from sacks obtained from Cunning Scamps
- Double the amount of drops from bosses (including within the Imperial City itself and its dungeons)
During the event, The Elder Scrolls Online players can earn new Event Tickets by beating either the Imperial City Prison dungeon boss, or the White-Gold Tower dungeon one. Alternatively, they can slay patrolling monsters in the Imperial City streets, or kill a mini-boss in the sewers.
"The Imperial City Celebration Event is your first opportunity to acquire the Onyx Berries of Growth for 10 Event Tickets from the Impresario vendor. When you combine this berry with the other three from the other Q3 events (one still to be announced!), you can evolve your Nascent Indrik mount into the Onyx Indrik", Bethesda said.
You can find the announcement on The Elder Scrolls Online website.
