Welcome to ESO Endeavors Guide 2023! The Elder Scrolls Online Endeavors system is a great way to passively or actively acquire the means to purchase crown gem and crown crate items without having to spend real money. While this process can take a long time if you want to be able to purchase the most highly valued items, the benefit of the system is that all it requires is to simply play the game. This ESO Endeavors Guide will explain how the system works and show you can start to earn your way towards that awesome apex mount!
Seals of Endeavor
Seals of Endeavor is the name of the special in-game currency by which players may purchase crown crate items. Prior to their release these crate items were only attainable by spending real life money (or by the somewhat chancy player-to-player trade of gold for gifted crown store items). Now players have an opportunity to earn them by using a currency which players can collect in game. Given that the items in the crown crates are usually the best-looking costumes or the most desirable flashy mounts, however, the number of Seals of Endeavors which a player will need to earn can be quite high.
Currently, the Endeavor’s cost for crown crate items is set at:
- 16,000 Seals of Endeavor – Radiant Apex Rewards
- 8,000 Seals of Endeavor – Apex Rewards
- 3,600 Seals of Endeavor – Legendary Rewards
- 2,000 Seals of Endeavor – Epic Rewards
- 1,000 Seals of Endeavor – Superior Rewards
- 360 Seals of Endeavor – Fine Rewards
- 360 Seals of Endeavor – Common Rewards
Players earn Seals of Endeavors by completing daily and weekly Endeavor Quests. These quests are not like other dailies which need to be actively picked up by the player character and are added to the character’s quest journal. Rather, Endeavor Quests are always automatically active on your account. They can even be earned ‘passively’ if you happen to complete one of the quests in the course of your regular gameplay. You do not even have to check what the current Endeavors quests were, the game will still automatically reward you.
If you do wish to check what the current running Endeavors quests are, open up the Group & Activity Finder in the UI. Endeavors is listed right below Group and clicking on that will give you the option of either Daily or Weekly. The game will show you which Endeavors quests are active, which ones (if any) you have completed, the reward for each, and how a timer for how long until the current batch of quests resets.
The amount you earn for each endeavor quest depends on the difficulty. The daily quests are typically short and simple and will reward you with anywhere from 10-20 Seals of Endeavor. There are usually 5 daily Endeavors quests active each day, BUT you are only allowed the reward for completing 3 of them. So, it’s possible to earn up to at least 30 Seals of Endeavor per day if you complete as many as you can.
The weekly quests obviously will require more work and will commonly reward the player with around 225 Seals of Endeavor. There are usually 3 weekly Endeavors quests active, BUT you are only allowed the reward for completing one. So, there are a total of 225 Endeavors you could potentially earn. Keep an eye out, though! It can pay to at least check what the Endeavor Quests are, as on rare occasions, the rewards for special quests will be much higher!
Tips and Tricks for Endeavors Quests
Most of the Endeavors quests are pretty straight-forward, but some can ask for very specific requirements. Here’s a list of some quick tips to help.
- The chests which are rewarded upon defeating a dolmen count towards the Treasure Chest quests
- Clockwork monsters are locked behind the Clockwork City DLC. Regular Dwarven enemies to not count towards the goal.
- Reptile monsters can be easily found at the Root Sunder Ruins in Ghratwood or most swampy areas in Shadowfen. Go for crocodiles – lamias and Argonian enemies don’t count.
- Crafting writs will count towards Endeavor Crafting quests.
- For Deconstructing quests, if needed you can craft the item yourself and then deconstruct
- For Harvesting quests, collecting mats from the appropriate type of survey maps will count towards its completion.
- For Harvesting quests, if you don’t have survey maps, Craglorn at the Dragonstar Wayshrine, back in the area around Fearfangs Cavern and Sunken Lair, is a decent place to farm materials. With the added bonus that you might get lucky and pick up a Nirncrux
- A ‘Place Furnishing’ quest does not require you to use new furnishing items. You can pick up and bag furnishes already in your home and then take them back out and place them again.
- ‘Dangerous Foes’ quests refers to monsters which have shielded life bars. The easiest way to find these foes is to run dolmens, where multiple of these enemies will drop.
