The Elder Scrolls Online team have announced an upcoming event for people who have the Blackwood Chapter. This event, called "Bounties of Blackwood", will focus on the Blackwood Pathfinder achievement. Community progress will increase by visiting all of the striking locales of Blackwood, and can be tracked by this progress bar. More rewards will be unlocked as the progress bar is filled in by the community:
- At 33% the community will unlock the Pellucid Swamp Jelly pet.
- At 66% the community will unlock the Shadows of Blackwood markings
- At 100% the community will unlock a cascading bounty box.
Additionally, a mystery prize will be unlocked at 100%, which will be revealed at the Gates of Oblivion Year-End Stream. If you have already unlocked the achievement, your progress will be retroactively counted, and you can still help by unlocking it on another character again.
There will also be bonuses for adventuring in Blackwood during this period, with Glorious Blackwood Legates’ Coffer rewarded for the first daily quest completed each day, and regular Blackwood Legates’ Coffers rewarded for performing more daily quests or completing other tasks. Lastly, normal reward boxes will have their contents doubled during this period, harvest nodes will yield more, drops will be better, and you can earn event tickets during the event.
Bounties of Blackwood will begin on September 30th at 10AM EDT, and end on October 12th at the same time. You can learn more from the official announcement or from our article.
