ESO The Impresario: The Event Merchant

Meet The Impersario, the event merchant. She sells items for Event Tickets that are earned by completing event related activities.
The Impresario and Event Tickets are available only during Event.



The Impresario is located at a special booth in Daggerfall in Glenumbra, Davon’s Watch in Stonefalls, Vulkhel Guard in Auridon, and the main chapter cities: Alinor (Summerset), Rimmen (Elsweyr), Solitude (Greymoor), and Vivec City (Morrowind) .


How it Works

To acquire Event Tickets required to purchase the Special Mount Runebox Fragments , you need to complete designated event activites (see list of events below).   Also, single Event Tickets will be available in the Crown Store on all platforms starting on March 21, 2019. They will be available for purchase during in-game event periods, and will also be giftable to other players from within the Crown Store. The first date range will be March 21 to April 2, during the Jester’s Festival.

10 Tickets are required to purchase a Runebox Fragment.

You must take part in multiple in-game events and collect four related runebox items, with a different one available for each specific event.

Note: You can only carry 12 Event Tickets at a time and that they are an account-wide “currency” that can’t be traded, so be sure to pick up those Indrik Feathers before trying to earn more.

Once you’ve summoned the base Nascent Indrik mount, you’ll have a chance to evolve it with the use of unique Berries.

  • Similar to Feathers, Berries are available from The Impresario in exchange for Event Tickets.
    • The Dawnwood Berry of Bloom

Here’s how you evolve your Nascent Indrik mount:

  1. During certain in-game events (indicated below), collect Event Tickets by participating in that event’s specific activities.
    • Note that we are also planning to add Event Tickets to the Crown Store late Q1
  2. Collect 10 Event Tickets and use them to buy Indrik Berries from the event merchant known as the Impresario, located at a special booth outside Daggerfall in Glenumbra, Davon’s Watch in Stonefalls, and Vulkhel Guard in Auridon.
  3. Each unique Q1 event will provide you with the opportunity to buy new Indrik Berries from the Impresario:
    • Midyear Mayhem (In January!) – <Seasonal> Berries of Bloom
    • Morrowind Celebration – <Seasonal> Berries of Budding
    • Thieves Guild & Dark Brotherhood Celebration – <Seasonal> Berries of Growth
    • Jester’s Festival – <Seasonal> Berries of Ripeness
    • Note that the Impresario is only available during each event.
  4. Once you have all four unique Indrik Berries, use any of them to transform your Nascent Indrik mount, replacing it in your Collections UI with a new, evolved one!

Note that all of the above items, when purchased from the Impresario, are bind-on-pickup and non-tradable. The Impresario is located in Daggerfall, Davon’s Watch, and Vulkhel Guard.
