Bethesda is making a big adjustment to The Elder Scrolls online, marking how Microsoft’s acquisition is changing Bethesda’s approach to microtransactions. Items available in loot boxes will also soon be available without having to spend any real money.
ZeniMax Online Stuidos announced this in a new update post (via Eurogamer) that previews content coming in a mid-June update, so players will have to wait a while longer before it takes affect. A system called Endeavors will allow players to complete daily and weekly quests to earn rewards, including Seals of Endeavor that can be spent on any Crown Crate items currently in the game.
Tasks include stealing items, crafting or selling items, defeating enemies, harvesting resources, and several other quest types.
“For the first time in The Elder Scrolls Online, you can acquire these highly sought-after items via gameplay in addition to finding them within crates,” the developer said.
The amount you get will vary depending on the quests completed, as well as the day. Any items you get through Seals of Endeavor can’t be converted into gems–this is only offered for duplicate Crown Crate items.
You can see all the Crown Crate items available via Seals from the Crown Store menu, and when each day is over, daily Endeavors will be reset with new one activated.
