ESO Teases Upcoming Event: Zeal of Zenithar (Updated)

ZOS recently updated their road map for 2022. The Anniversary event was not a surprise but many noticed a new event for June 2022.

The new event is the Zeal of Zenithar. Zenithar is known as God of Work and Commerce. So far the early speculation by the ESO Community is that the event will related to crafting or involve the guild traders.

UPDATE:

According to the PTS Patch Notes, the event will allow players to earn reward boxes known as Zenithar’s Delighful Parcels completing some of the following activities

  • You have a chance to earn additional purple-quality Zenithar’s Delightful Parcels by completing the following activities:A box from completing the introductory quest, both the first time and on subsequent years if you prefer to complete it again.
  • A guaranteed box for completing any Master Writ.
  • A guaranteed box for the first daily Crafting Writ, per account, that you complete each day
  • A guaranteed box for defeating a world boss (skull and crossed swords icons on your map) or world events (dolmens, harrowstorms, geysers, dragons, etc.) while grouped with someone who is in at least one of your guilds.
  • A chance when conquering each round of a group-based arena challenge (such as Dragonstar or Blackrose Prison) while grouped with someone who is in at least one of your guilds. The final round’s reward chest has a guaranteed parcel.
  • Or if you’re not interested in hard work, a small chance to steal parcels from hard-working Tamrielic citizens through pickpocketing, strongboxes, or thieves’ troves.

You will also earn 3 tickets from the first one of these activities done each day.

Rewards appear to include Outfit pages for High Rock Spellsword Style, Crafting Materials/Motifs/Boosters/Recipes, Imperial City Vault Keys, Treasure Maps, Survey Maps, Currency pouches, and companion gear.
