A new event is now available for testing in the public test server of The Elder Scrolls Online. Update 8.0.1 introduces the Zeal of Zenithar - an event that honors the Tamrielic god of commerce and hard work. New activities and content await you, so strap in and read further to learn more.

New Event

You can get “The Unrefusable Offer” quest from Amminus Varo at the new Belkarth festival grounds to begin. Those relatively new to TESO need not worry as a portal in every Impresario tent can take you straight to the city.

Once you’re finished with the quest, you can then proceed and pick up the “Honest Toil.” This is a single daily quest that gives you three event tickets and a gold quality Zenithar’s Sublime Parcel reward box when completed.

Additionally, you have a chance to earn purple quality Zenithar’s Delightful Parcels by completing certain activities. For instance, you can get a guaranteed box for completing any Master Writ.

The good thing about getting the Zenithar’s Delightful Parcels is that they have a chance to contain the following:

  • A tradeable outfit style page for the new High Rock Spellsword Armor.
  • Durable crafting materials, provisioning ingredients, alchemy reagents, runestones, or a motif style item.
  • Crafting boosters with a very small chance of 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.

To help make testing a lot less cumbersome, the developers reduced the prices of some basic goods and services. The following global effects are in place during the event period:

  • Wayshrine travel costs are reduced by 75%.
  • Repair costs on vendors are reduced by 50%.
  • Vendor prices across Tamriel are reduced by 10%:
    • Vendors that sell items for Gold, AP, or Tel Var stones, including the Golden Vendor.
    • Houses purchasable for Gold.

Update 8.0.1 is introducing a new consumable item called Companion Guild Commendations. These are sold by the  Impresario and are always available whenever she’s around. 

So, what do these commendations do? Using them while one of your companions is active will immediately advance that companion to the next skill rank of the associated guild. 

And another thing, the developers will allow you to buy these commendations as new companions are introduced over time. This is true even if your current companions are fully leveled up.

The Elder Scrolls Online Update 8.0.1 is currently only available on PC.
