Jerric did the new prologue quest today. Oh my gosh! Such nostalgia.


Is it on the Live Server? I didn't know that! How do you access it?

You can select it in the Quest Starters section of the Crown store (free).


Jerric is enjoying the festival. He needs the libations fragment still. He will likely want to buy a house for the pigs and goats to live in.


I've got the pig; so if I get the "Libations" Fragment, I'll send it to you.

I did the Prologue quest tonight; and was totally struck that I had done this quest already. I don't remember getting on the PTS and doing it; but ... must have. Anyway = completed it on the Live Server tonight.

Thanks, that's so sweet! Jerric got the Libations fragment this morning though, so he's celebrating with his princess pig at his heels today. She is so cute!


Isn't she adorable? I have three of my characters enjoying her company right now!

All this chatter about the prologue quest is making me smile. I have not yet done it, since I want to get Stefan through his Reaper's March quests (the last of his Caldwell's Silver) before taking on the new skyrim content with Argis.

Speaking of Argis, I need to get his build updated to tackle the new content . . .

Phae has been enjoying the Jester's Festival all week. Yesterday she completed the last two achievements in her journal, and is contemplating taking the pig home to Gorinir. She went balls out the first day and got all geared up in Jester finery. Her favorite part is escorting Princess to the Jester King Jorunn. As of yesterday she feels she has done everything there is to do . . .


Aw, you got a picture of Princess!!! I never realized she was that big! Remember last year when we quested this festival together with our stick ponies? That was so much fun!

With the current event giving us two important things: rewards for doing dailies, and 100% XP boost, it seemed that the best way to exploit those is new characters, so we can do more dailies, and get the max benefit from boosted XP.

So Ma'Licious, who I've had in mind for some time, has now joined the team. She may have to answer to "The Cat in the Hat" as well.

But that made 13, so I had to create Kemel al-Satakalaami as well. (Call him Al, everyone else does).

Both the new ones were Skyrim characters created for testing mods. Ma'Licious was the female wagon-builder, and Al wore the Alik'r Heavy armour (and his housecarl tested the female version).

So far, they have each joined the FG, MG, Undaunted, and Psijics. They have their second bar, and are doing the MQ and parts of their Alliance quests for the skill points. Al is deconstructing all the equipment the rest of the crew gathers, and the Cat in the Hat is doing the same for glyphs. Wizwen has all the jewelry to deconstruct, as she's on the brink of L50 in JC.

Ma'Licious has also inherited a set of L16 Julianos (Training) and has looted her first Psijic portal, so hopefully she'll progress quickly. Al doesn't have much hand-me-down gear available, but we can easily make him some.

And all the others are doing all the crafting writs, and a Bolgrul where needed. We get more than 100 boxes a day, if I can find the time for it all.

Hee! Welcome to Kitty Licks! Also to Camel & Salami. tongue.gif

For lack of anything else to spend tix on, Buffy's been acquiring the Jephrine Paladin style pages - then ending up sometimes getting the same page from an rewards box. So. . . she's added 3 Jephrine style pages to the guild bank so far with still a a week of event to go. So anyone who wants that style should be able to find a number of pages in the guild bank.

I too went through the guild bank this morning and pulled out a lot of furnishing recipes and provisioning recipes for my crew. I hesitate to put anything from the events that don't stack because they just take up so many slots and I don't see the ones from the previous events (cherry blossom branches and juggler's knives, for example) disappearing anytime soon. So I'm destroying those I get - I am ruthless about stuff I don't use. Why keep the juggler's knives and cherry blossom branches when I have the mementos that do the same thing and DON"T TAKE UP INVENTORY SLOTS!!!!

I will put in any jephrines/companion pages I'm not able to give away to guildies in the bank later on. But I forsee the same fate happening to them as well.

The Guild bank was close to being full last time I dumped in it - I probably contributed a lot of the furnishing plan items Rider just pulled. I did what I could by stacking duplicates as I went, but I didn't sweep the whole thing for content I wasn't adding. Although I was just dumping, there were less slots used when I finished!

The non-stacking style pages are a bit of a dilemma. I have complete sets of the companions on one of my characters. The guild bank could be reduced to one copy, in case we get a new recruit that needs them, but any more seems pointless. I'll review he content at the end of the event, and keep one in there, and one in reserve on a character, so I can replace if it gets used.

I haven't looked at Soul gems and Lockpicks for a while. There may be more stacks of those than we need. My new characters got their allotment from my own seniors, not the guild. It's really only new members we need them for.

Holy Cow, 14 characters! I love that you are still keeping character sheets on your characters for ESO like you did for all the previous games and mods! I have always loved those pages on your people, places, and stories!!!

Welcome to Ma'Licious and Kemel al-Satakalaami !!!

Before my PC crashed I saw that the bank was getting full too. The best thing I can do is = if Rader doesn't want them, I will take all those PvP Siege weapons out and donate them to another guild.

It would help tremendously if guild banks had a stack function. Still obnoxious that they don't have one.

I think those furnishings should just be destroyed at least. They've been sitting in there forever and are not such high-quality that we are missing out on a lot with them, unless somebody really just likes the look of them. I took a few furnishing and provisioning plans, but that's it. I also took a few things out that I created that have been in there for a long time and have either sold them to NPCs or in the SneakyBo guild trader.

There's too many for me to take out, but no biggie. I have plenty of Alliance Points to spend. Just don't go donating to the Dominion or the Covenant. tongue.gif

Some of you already saw in guild chat last night, but ya boy has finally attained CP810! I'm finally one of the big dogs and now all the big kids on the playground have to respect me!

I won a round of Chaosball, getting ALL 5 relics for my team, and thus completed the quest for Battlemaster Rivyn where you participate in 5 matches. Since this is me we are talking about, I figured a quest for Battlegrounds was a perfect way to hit that mark. When I turned it in, I came up a couple thousand XP short, lol. Turned in one of the dailies in Vvardenfell, which then put me through to CP810. A bit of a damper, but oh well.

I also find it strange that CP811 suddenly requires another 200,000 XP to hit than from 809 to 810 but *shrugs*. Guess it doesn't matter anymore.

After doing a gazillion writs during the anniversary event, the crew has amassed over 2 million gold. Now we're stuck deciding between saving some more for Serenity Falls, or letting Laurie splurge on motif completions. It should be a good time to get chapters at a decent price, if the event created a glut.

Any opinion?

ghastley, you should take up PvP. You’ll blow it all in the first week on gear. tongue.gif

I’d go with whatever you want to use first – the motif styles or the house. I just found out you can preview the motifs that you don’t have yet. Maybe looking at them at the Outfit station will help with your decision?

I never properly greeted your new team members! Ma’Licious looks delicious. As great as Al looked in his plate armor, I like him even better in ESO with minimal shirt. A warm welcome to 13 and 14. I love your character sheets!

Well the motifs aren't wanted so much for outfit style as for master writ use. That's the other thing that's built up a big backlog during the anniversary. We probably have a hundred to do, because they dropped frequently with 12 of the characters at max rank at at least some crafts. There's a full storage chest of 60 slots, and more in characters' inventories. So Laurie has a LOT of work to catch up on.

Wizwen has the required "Hero" achievement for the Dominion, so it's just the cash needed for the house. Ma'Licious doesn't have one of her own, and Cat Man Dhou isn't giving up Sleek Creek unless he gets a much better deal. Al is likely to take over Hunding's, as Laurie likes her cozy Twin Arches better as a home. I think he got the up-market ideas when Minx got a new costume for him, by completing one of the Thieves' Guild quests.

So I have good reasons for both, and probably won't decide until we actually do have the full price of the house saved up. By then Laurie will have done the writs she can with the chapters the event dropped, and we'll have a better idea of the needs.

This is the first time I’m really doing this the day it drops, but I downloaded the new PTS update and spent some time running around Western Skyrim. Man, it is just like TESV, only “newer” - even that burned house in Morthal is intact and new looking. Solitude is just as I remember it from TESV. Proudspire Manor is only missing Jordis. The land is shaped the same, if that makes any sense. I even felt the temptation to cross the river below Solitude and go looking for that house from Hearthfire, the one you get from the Morthal Jarl. Argis really enjoyed exploring it, and we bought all three homes available. Our favorite, hands down, is Proudspire. It’s a good size, and looks easy to furnish without running out of slots. And it’s right next door to the Bard’s College! Phae will like it very much for that reason.

I have to say they did such a wonderful job on this zone that I felt myself wanting to stop somewhere in the wilderness and pitch camp, like I used to do in TESV (thanks to Frostfall and Camping mods).

I went and checked it all out after reading this = Also loved Proudspire Manor and the free Solitude apartment.

Was really not sure what was going on with the "Notable" house; but I couldn't get further than the landing spot. There was a floating window and two floating braziers; then nothing. If I followed the rocks around it lead me to the interior; but I was "off the map" so was able to see the interior of the "house" (cave) but was unable to walk around in it because the invisible walls blocked me out. I submitted a bug report.

I did try to get as close to Whiterun as possible; but the above ground map stops just past Morthal. I tried to go south = wasn't able to get far at all; though I could see plenty of map there (so figure there will be an underground access to the southern areas).

Blackreach looked much better on the PTS than it did on the Prologue Quest; thank goodness. There was some new loot and new enemies; Pia (Templar) fought some big giant bug that was really tough; it almost killed her.


She found about five wayshrines down in the Blackreach underground; and two skyshards down there. Above ground she found the two wayshrines at Solitude. No Whiterun; but maybe that will come in the next DLC drop in the Fall or Winter (like they did with dividing Northern and Southern Elsweyr = maybe they will do Western and Eastern Skyrim?) I hope so; because I absolutely LOVED Whiterun!

I am so far delighted with what I’ve seen of Western Skyrim. I found myself glancing at spawn points from Skyrim and looking for my old house mods as my test character rode past. The furniture placement improvements will be great for those of us who do not use add-ons for that. Proudspire Manor especially brought back fond memories of adventuring with Rowan and Jensa.

After doing the new starting quest I had high hopes that they had added black hair to Altmer character creation, but no. Has anyone heard if we’ll be getting a new free character slot with Greymoor? I had room to make a 15th character, but I don’t know if that’s just because it’s the PTS.

Did you see the horse water troughs with water in them? I have been asking for that for five years! WOO HOO!!! I will most def buy them from the Crown Store for all my houses if I can before I'm able to buy the Chapter.

Also liked some of the new "Hearth" items. One of the Breakfast plates looked great; loved the sliced bread; and loved the cured meats rack = and all the stocked shelves!

I'll warn you in advance that the stools don't work; but I do love the Solitude wicker chairs and the plainer wood slat ones. The other fancier stuff just kind of looked like re-skinned Alinor stuff; it wasn't a draw for me.

But some of the "vampire" named pieces like the desk and dresser I loved. And the new mirrors = Awesome!

I know the wonderful feeling of Oblivion nostalgia the The Gold Coast gives me and am encouraged to hear that Graymoor might provide some welcome Skyrim nostalgia. smile.gif
