More Elder Scrolls Online players play High Elves than anything else, and other fun fourth-birthday stats

I made you this. Use it.
Let’s just pile on some more events in The Elder Scrolls Online, shall we? This latest round is in honor of the game’s fourth birthday and kicks off on Wednesday. And yes, it involves cake.

“To join the event, visit the famous Chef Donolon in Vulkhel Guard, Daggerfall, or Davon’s Watch and complete his Anniversary quest ‘Ache for Cake.’ You can get directions to Chef Donolon’s location by obtaining a Jubilee Cake Voucher free of charge from the in-game Crown Store. When you complete ‘Ache for Cake’ you’ll receive the brand-new, three-tiered Anniversary Jubilee Cake. It’ll be added to your Mementos within your Collectibles UI. Activate the cake to place it in front of your character, then use it to enjoy a tasty slice and receive a two-hour 100% XP buff that stacks with any other active XP bonuses that your character might currently be enjoying (such as those from scrolls or ESO Plus membership).”

Ache for Cake. Yep. Daily and weekly quests during the event period will award anniversary gift boxes bearing special motifs.

So what’s been going on in ESO over the last four years? Nothing much, just big numbers. Sorry, Justin, but Altmer (High Elves) are inexplicably the most popular race (which may explain the path being paved for Summerset, eh?).
