Elder Scrolls Online adding a new way to acquire Crown Crate items
Zenimax Online has announced a new system for The Elder Scrolls Online that will give players the opportunity to obtain Crown Crate items without spending actual money.
The Endeavors system is due to arrive as part of Update 30 in mid-June and will give players new daily and weekly tasks to complete that offer various rewards and a new currency called Seals of Endeavor. The tasks that players will be asked to do include stealing items, completing quests, selling items, crafting, and more.
“The number of daily or weekly Endeavors you can complete each day or week will vary, so be sure to check what the cap currently is and work out which of the available Endeavors you’d like to take on. This is to ensure that everybody, regardless of their play style, has an opportunity to earn the new currency without having to complete activities they don’t necessarily enjoy,” the developer explains. “Once you’ve reached the daily or weekly cap for completed Endeavors, the remaining ones are then deactivated. When the day is over, the daily Endeavors will reset and new ones will become available, and when the week is over, the weekly Endeavors will do the same.”
As mentioned above, players will be rewarded with new Seals of Endeavor for completing these tasks, with the amount rewarded being based on the day and challenge level of the Endeavor. Players can use this new currency to purchase any item currently available in Crown Crates, including consumables, pets, cosmetics, and rare Radiant Apex mounts. However, the developer notes that items acquired in this way cannot be converted into gems.
There is no cap to the number of Seals a player can hold and they are an account-based currency. A complete list of available items can be found in the Seals tab in the Crown Store once the update goes live.
The Elder Scrolls Online is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
