In October 2018, a new currency was introduced in the game : Event Tickets !
You can spend your tickets at a special merchant : The Impresario.
In non-DLC zones, the Impresario is located a bit outside Vulkhel Guard (Auridon), Davon’s Watch (Stonefalls) and Daggerfall (Glenumbra). The map pin for it looks like a little calendar with a star !
She is also located in the main DLC/chapter zones : just outside Vivec City in Vvardenfell, north of Alinor in Summerset, on the outskirts of Rimmen in Northern Elsweyr and near the docks of Solitude in Western Skyrim.
The Impresario only appears during an in-game festival/event.
You can only hold 12 Event Tickets per account so be careful ! If you have 12 Event Tickets and you earn another one, it will go to waste ! To take a look at how much “currency” you’re holding, open your inventory (I) and on the top right corner, select “currency” (the coins).
Some of the items you can buy with Event Tickets are Indrik Feathers ! There are four of them : Emerald, Gilded, Onyx, Opaline. They are unique items which means you can only have one of each per account. Each Feather costs 10 Event Tickets. You can find them in your Collections tab, under “Fragments” → “Nascent Indrik”
When you have the four of them in your Collections, hover over any of them and press “E” to Combine : You will receive the Nascent Indrik Mount !
This Nascent Indrik is a “base mount” : You can evolve it ! You can also choose to keep it that way, it’s fully functional, don’t worry 😉
You can evolve your Indrik into a different type using Berries ! Berries are sold by the Impresario and cost 10 event tickets each.
There were four possible evolutions introduced in 2019 : Dawnwood, Luminous, Onyx and Pure-Snow. The ESO team do not have any plans to bring back the 2019 evolutions but “there is a chance that they will do so in the future”. Sources : x x
2020 is bringing 4 new types of Indrik evolutions : Spectral, Icebreath, Mossheart and Crimson !
You need the four unique berries of one type to evolve your Indrik into this type. For example, you need the four Crimson berries to evolve your Indrik into the Crimson Indrik. The berries are also located in the Collections tab, under “Fragments”.
The year 2019 was divided into four quarters : Q1, Q2, Q3 and Q4. Each quarter was dedicated to an evolution and a type of berry : Q1 = Dawnwood, Q2 = Luminous, Q3 = Onyx, Q4 = Snow White.
In 2020, you could get the Spectral berries during Q1, the Icebreath berries during Q2, the Mossheart berries during Q3. We are now in Q4 and you can get the Crimson Berries. It appears that this will be the last Indrik! (Source: x)
Please note that you will not be able to buy the berries from a previous quarter (you cannot buy the Spectral Berries during Q2, Q3 and Q4 for example). You can buy all previous 2020 Berries during the New Life Festival though, as it is the very last event of 2020!
Once you have the four berries of one type, go to your Collections tab, hover over one of them and press “E” to combine and evolve your Nascent Indrik Mount into the corresponding evolution ! Obviously, you need to already own a Nascent Indrik Mount. You can’t evolve it if you don’t have it…
There will be many in-game festivals/events throughout the year ! During each event, you’ll be able to earn tickets.
The events will be announced automatically in the #askmaiq channel on Discord (our bot posts the ESO news) and I (Yun) will write posts in the #all-about-ESO channel with all the important information ! Read that post if you’re confused about the official ESO article 😉 To join our discord channel, simply click here.
The way to get tickets will be specific to each festival so keep an eye on these announcements !
- You can only have one Nascent Indrik Mount and one of each evolved Indrik. This means that before you “create” a new Nascent Indrik Mount, you’ll need to evolve your first one
- You can buy tickets with crowns during the events (250 Crowns = 1 Event Ticket)
- The Impresario is selling other items like Outfit Style Pages and special pets, check it out 😉
Go and get your magical horses \o/
