The Elder Scrolls Online is about to embark on a momentous journey as it celebrates its 10th anniversary. The in-game event, a culmination of a decade of adventure, kicks off on April 4 at 3 PM BST, promising a plethora of fun and excitement during Tamriel's grand celebrations.

Once you embark on the quest 'For Cake’s Sake,' the festivities of the 10th-anniversary event will unfold. Completing this quest will reward you with this year's Jubilee Cake. The best part? The 100% XP buff, previously obtained by consuming cake slices, is active for the entire event.

The anniversary event follows Bethesda's announcement that The Elder Scrolls VI is in a playable state. We have a lot of info to go through with everything happening in Tamriel during this momentous occasion, so let's get into the details without further ado!

There are a lot of things going on during this period of celebration. On Bethesda's official site, they have shared all the details and goings-on during the festivities.


The Jubilee Cake isn’t the only thing seeing improvements this year. The traditional Anniversary Jubilee Gift Boxes are changing too. You can now earn Gift Boxes from additional sources, and the first Gift Box you earn from any source each day will be a gold Glorious Anniversary Jubilee Gift Box with incredible rewards. Additional reward boxes will be regular Anniversary Jubilee Gift Boxes, but don’t let that concern you—these boxes give rewards of similar quality to the gold boxes of years past.

You can earn Gift Boxes from any of the following sources (bear in mind that only the first Gift Box earned each day will be a Glorious box, no matter where you get it):

  • Any daily quest in the game, as in previous years, including:
  • Daily crafting writs
  • Daily Delve, World Boss, and Incursion event quests
  • Daily Alliance War and Battlegrounds quests
  • Daily Dungeon and Trial quests
  • Daily Heist and Sacrament quests
  • Killing and looting any final Dungeon boss
  • Killing and looting any final Trial boss
  • Killing and looting any World boss
  • Completing any Incursion event, such as a Dark Anchor, Abyssal Geyser, Bastion Nymic, or similar
  • Rewards for the Worthy reward mails (the box will appear inside the parcel received)
  • A chance from Tales of Tribute reward mails, with a higher chance to receive one based on the challenge of the opponent or the number of opponents face during a daily (the box will appear inside the parcel received)

What’s in these wonderful boxes, you might ask? In the case of the Glorious Anniversary Jubilee Gift Boxes available once daily, they contain:

  • Crafting materials
  • A motif chapter, furnishing recipe, or style item
  • New: A tradeable outfit style page for the Earthbone Ayleid armor style
  • New: A fragment for the new Jubilee Steed mount (note that you need 25 total fragments to make the steed, so keep some Event Tickets ready if you want this one!)
  • 1 to 10 Transmute Crystals
  • Desecrated Grave Soil, the Worm Cult style item

Subsequent boxes earned in a day are Anniversary Jubilee Gift Boxes and contain:

  • Crafting materials
  • A small chance for a motif chapter, furnishing recipe, or style item
  • A chance for 1 to 10 Transmute Crystals
  • A chance for Desecrated Grave Soil, the Worm Cult style item
  • A small chance for a tradeable style page for last year’s Bonemold armor style
  • Another small chance for a tradeable style page from any of the Bonemold, Saberkeel, or Worm Cult outfit styles

That’s a treasure trove of rewards in every box, and playing ESO throughout the event can earn you a great many boxes. But that’s not all!

In addition to the Gift Boxes and the rewards therein, you can also earn new cosmetic rewards that have never before been earnable in game, although they may be familiar to some players.

  • As an extremely small chance from any fishing node during the Jubilee, you may find outfit style pages for the Trueflame Sword Replica. Yes, really!
  • Any Dolmen reward chest has a chance to contain a style page for the Staff of Worms Replica, in recognition (though not honor) of Mannimarco’s dark deeds.
  • Any World Boss in Vvardenfell has a chance to drop a style page for either the Sunna’rah Replica or the Barbas Helmet Replica, as seen during that Chapter’s story.
  • Any Geyser in Summerset has a chance to drop a style page for the Ul’vor Staff, as seen during that Chapter’s story.


When you’ve got as many Event Tickets as the Jubilee will award, you need things to spend them on. Fortunately, the Impresario came prepared with an extensive stock for her stall. In preparation for this year’s festivities, she has filled her inventory with the following items:

  • All three Molag Bal Illusion Imp pet fragments
  • Anchor Chain Fragment
  • Dark Anchor Pinion
  • Effigy of the Dominator
  • The first two fragments for the new Master of Schemes personality
  • Cold Iron Gauntlet
  • Grim Iron Mask
  • Bound style pages for the Earthbone Ayleid armor style
  • Anniversary Cake furnishings (note that these require you to own the respective year’s cake memento to buy!)
  • Anniversary Cake Slice furnishings (unlike the full cakes, you do not need to own the respective year’s cake memento to buy these!)
  • Jubilee Steed mount fragments
  • Bags of Jubilee Yesteryear, containing the following, providing only items you do not currently own:
  • Bound Worm Cult motif chapters
  • Jephrine Paladin armor style pages
  • Imperial Champion armor style pages
  • Prophet armor style pages
  • Lyris armor style pages
  • Sai Sahan armor style pages
  • Abnur Tharn armor style pages
  • Bound Saberkeel armor style pages
  • Bound Bonemold armor style pages
  • Aurora Firepot Spider parts (excluding the instructions, which are available from the Impresario’s assistant, Philius Dormier)
  • Desecrated Grave Soil (note that this is a chance in addition to whatever else the bag contains)
  • Group Repair Kits
  • Companion Guild Commendations

The Master of Schemes personality

All that inventory makes the Impresario quite well-stocked indeed! But what about her assistant, Philius Dormier? In addition to his usual wares, he will be stocking:

  • All three Unstable Morpholith Pet Fragments
  • All three Deadlands Scorcher Skin Fragments

And of course, coming last in the list but by no means least, Nenuluare the Indrik Vendor will have the following items in stock over the course of the Jubilee:

  • Nascent Indrik Feathers
  • Luminous Indrik Berries
  • Icebreath Indrik Berries
  • Shimmering Indrik pet
  • Rimedusk Indrik pet

With all of this to get through after the end of the Jester's Festival, there is no time like the present to put on your party hat and celebrate with Tamriel's finest. Not only is ESO celebrating ten years, but the entire Elder Scrolls franchise is celebrating its 30th anniversary, too.

The Anniversary Jubilee in-game event starts at 3 PM BST on April 4 and runs until 3 PM BST on April 23.
