Fight for the Ruby Throne during the Imperial City Celebration


Battle your fellow players and Daedra under the shadow of the White-Gold Tower during the Imperial City Celebration and you’ll earn bonus rewards and collectibles.

Capture the Capital

The Imperial City Celebration begins Thursday, September 3 at 10:00AM EDT, and will run until Tuesday, September 15 at 10:00AM EDT. During this in-game event, you can earn bonus rewards within both the Imperial City PvP zone and its two PvE dungeons: White-Gold Tower and Imperial City Prison.

To begin your fight for the capital, you must have access to the Imperial City DLC game pack either via ESO Plus™ membership or free from the DLC section of the in-game Crown Store.

Battle in the city

To enter the Imperial City PvP zone, open your Alliance War menu, select the Imperial City category, choose either Champion Point or non-Champion point Campaign, and select “Enter Campaign.” (It’ll take you to the Imperial City Sewers to begin.)

To take on the Imperial City’s four-player dungeons, you can queue for them via the Dungeon Finder or by finding their entrances in the Imperial City districts (White-Gold Tower) or Imperial City Sewers (Imperial City Prison).

Loot Lost Riches

During the Imperial City Celebration event, you can loot the lost riches of a city under perpetual siege as you earn the following bonus rewards:

  • Double the amount of Tel Var Stones dropped from all monsters
  • Bonus chance of picking up either the Stonefire Scamp pet or the Soul-Shriven skin
  • Double the amount of Key Fragments
  • Bonus loot dropped by Trove Scamps and Cunning Scamps
  • Bonus drops from bosses (including within the Imperial City itself and its dungeons)

To earn the above, take part in any of the regular Imperial City activities, including battling in the Imperial Sewers and city districts, and taking on either the White-Gold Tower or Imperial City Prison dungeons.

Legion Zero Strongboxes

Those willing to fight shield-to-shield in the heart of the lost empire are a special breed of warrior. To reward those few braving the dangers of Cyrodiil’s close-combat warfare, Legion Zero Strongboxes have been added to this event.

The first time you complete (turn in) an Imperial City district daily quest or defeat the final boss within the Imperial City Prison or White-Gold Tower dungeons, you’ll receive a Glorious Legion Zero Strongbox. These reward boxes can contain valuable and useful items, such as:

  • Tel Var Stones
  • Crafting Materials
  • Xivkyn Motif style items
  • Key Fragments
  • Valuables to be sold to vendors
  • Pages from the Legion Zero Vigiles armor style
  • Pages from the Tools of Domination weapon style
  • Xivkyn Motif chapters

The Legion Zero Vigiles armor style

After you’ve received your daily Glorious Legion Zero Strongbox, you have a chance to earn regular versions of this box by completing Imperial City activities such as defeating patrolling or sewer bosses, opening chests or safeboxes, defeating bosses in White-Gold Tower or Imperial City Prison, and from subsequent Imperial City district daily quests.

While the rewards found within regular Legion Zero Strongboxes are not as plentiful as those found in their Glorious counterpart, they still have a chance to contain useful and rare items, including the new style pages if you’re lucky!

Impresario & Event Tickets

During the Imperial City Celebration, you can earn three Event Tickets per day, awarded the first time you either complete a daily quest in the Imperial City districts or sewers or defeat the final boss in the White-Gold Tower or Imperial City Prison dungeons—make sure you loot your kills! 

Throughout the event period, the Impresario will stock the following items:

  • Legion Zero Vigiles armor style pages (bound to your character on purchase)
  • Tools of Domination weapon style pages (bound to your character on purchase)
  • All four Indrik Feathers (to get a Nascent Indrik)
