Have you ever wanted to help animals, donate to animal welfare charities, enter sweepstakes to win prizes, enjoy new in-game events, and slay a bunch of dragons all at the same time? If yes, you’ll love Elder Scrolls Online’s #SlayDragonsSaveCats charity event.
Best Friends Animal Society has been running the USA’s largest no-kill sacntuary for companion animals for over 30 years. Their mission is to make sure that every animal, from dogs to cats to horses, birds, rabbits, potbellied pigs, and to all others, will one day have a loving home. For more information, you can visit their website here.
FOUR PAWS is a charity that aims to stop animal abuse, neglect, and exploitation all over the world. Their vision is a world where people treat animals with respect, empathy, and understanding. FOUR PAWS has also been running for over 30 years. You can visit their website here.
All you have to do in order to take part is run around Northern and Southern Elsweyr, slaying every dragon you come across. For those who have the Scalebreaker DLC, you can also find dragons in the Lair of Maarselok.
For every five dragons slain, Elder Scrolls Online will donate $1 to the cause, up to a maximum of $200,000. The #SlayDragonsSaveCats charity event will run until December 9th, 2019, so you have plenty of time to bust out your sword and get slaying!
There are also a whole bunch of in-game events running from now until the end of the year. You can find them all listed below:
- Dragon Rise (3rd of October until 13th of October)—Explore the home of the Khajiit and complete the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement to unlock new collectibles for all Elsweyr owners. Check your progress on the Dragon Rise website and find more info in the announcement article.
- Witches Festival (24th of October until 3rd of November)—Tamriel’s grim celebration returns with ghastly quests and spooky new rewards—boo!
- Undaunted Celebration (14th of November until 17th of November)—Take on ESO’s challenging dungeons to receive reward boxes.
- Dawn of the Dragonguard (26th of November until 8th of December)—Fell Dragons to earn bonus loot and earn double rewards from the Wrathstone DLC, Elsweyr Chapter, Scalebreaker DLC, and Dragonhold DLC.
- New Life Festival (19th of December until 1st of January, 2020)—Celebrate the end of another great year and the beginning of the new one with fun quests and mud balls. Lots of mud balls.
Along with #SlayDragonsSaveCats and the new in-game events, there’s also a special Season of the Dragon Sweepstakes. You can win both in-game and real-life prizes, including the Horn of Ja’darri drinking horn.
So, to sum up: kill dragons, save cats and other animals, check out the Elder Scrolls Online’s in-game events, and enter the Season of the Dragon Sweepstakes to win prizes. Get slaying!
