In preparation for the release of Dragonhold, Zenimax Online Studios has announced a special community event where players can unlock free stuff and raise money for two cat charities (Best Friends Animal Society and FOUR PAWS).
To unlock these rewards, all Elsweyr players must work together to complete different activities and fill the three Dragon Rise meters:
- Explore Elsweyr and earn the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement to unlock the primary rewards
- Check your in-game Journal for help completing this Achievement
- Slay Dragons to unlock a zone-wide XP boost (Northern Elsweyr only)
- Since the Elsweyr Chapter’s release, you’ve already bested over 1 million Dragons, so what’s a few more?
- Complete the Dragonhold Prologue quests (from October 8) to unlock a zone-wide gold acquisition boost (Northern Elsweyr only)
As you complete the different objectives, you can check everybody’s progress by visiting the Dragon Rise page. If you’ve already unlocked the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement, don’t worry, it’ll still count, and you can continue to do your part by participating in the other two objectives.
In addition to unlocking a zone-wide XP boost, slaying Dragons also help increase the donation amount for the #SlayDragonsSaveCats campaign. Help pets in need while you help yourself to bonus XP—a win-win scenario!
Finally, as you defeat Northern Elsweyr’s Dragons and bosses, you have a chance to acquire a Nafaalilargus’s Strongbox as a bonus reward, including items such as crafting materials, style pages, gear sets, and more!
