    By Michel Z2023-10-04 17:20:02

    The Gates of Oblivion Celebration event of The Elder Scrolls Online is a special event that celebrates the release of the Blackwood chapter and the Deadlands DLC. The event features various bonuses and rewards for players who explore the zones and content related to Mehrunes Dagon's invasion of Nirn. In 2023, the event starts on November 16 at 10 AM EST and runs until November 28 at 10 AM EST.  In this guide, Zurga shows how to get rewards and event tickets, what reward boxes contain, what goodies are waiting for you at the event merchants, and other interesting event moments.



    The Introductory Quest

    To start the event, you can pick up the free introductory quest "Burdensome Beasts" in the Crown Store. This event includes four DLCs: Blackwood (Rockgrove trial), Deadlands (Fargrave and The Deadlands), Flames of Ambition (Cauldron and Black Drake Villa dungeons), and Waking Flame (Dread Cellar and Red Petal Bastion dungeons). You can buy a DLC with Crowns or buy it with gold from a reliable player in The Elder Scrolls Online.


    Gates of Oblivion Celebration Event Rewards


    Reward Boxes

    This year, you can get two Glorious boxes (gold-quality) and a whole bunch of purple-quality boxes. The boxes are divided into two categories: zone boxes and dungeon boxes.


    Zone boxes are found by completing daily quests in their respective zones, killing random enemies, Delve and World Bosses, Public Dungeon Bosses, Oblivion Portal Bosses and the final chest, treasure chests, safeboxes, resource nodes, thieves' troves, and pickpocketing NPCS.


    The first zone box each day coming from Delve or World Boss dailies is a gold-quality box. The first final dungeon boss of any of the four dungeons will offer a gold-quality box of its respective type. Therefore, you can earn two gold-quality boxes daily: one from the zone content and one from the dungeon content. Other boxes will be purple-quality.
