Announced last year, the Champion System for Elder Scrolls Online is finally drawing close to release. In fact, a guide to the new system has been released. We’ve condensed the guide here for Elder Scrolls Online account holders to get a gist of it and prepare their ESO gold hunters.
Points and Enlightenment for your ESO gold hunter
The new Champion System will be available for Elder Scrolls Online gold hunters at Veteran Rank 1 and above. Upon unlocking it, the benefits of the system will be available on the whole ESO account. Once activated, Champion Points can be earned by Veteran Rank Characters through activities that give experience. These can then be used to improve the character. Note that earned points can be used by all characters and that each character can distribute the points differently.
Along with the Champion System is a new Enlightenment mechanic. This will help TESO gold hunters earn Champion Points more easily. Enlightenment builds up on a TESO account over time, regardless if it is logged in or note. When your character earns experience, Enlightenment will give a bonus to Champion Point acquisition. This resource is consumed in this way and can only be recovered over time.
Signs your ESO gold hunter is linked to
The signs and Constellations in the previous games in the series come back in the Champion System. Namely, the guardian constellations of The Warrior, The Mage and The Thief return. Under each are three lesser constellations. It is in these constellations that players can purchases abilities with Champion Points. Note that points are assigned in a specific order: Warrior -> Thief -> Mage -> Warrior. If your last point was used on Thief, then your next can only be used on Mage.
Passives to improve ESO gold hunting
Each guardian constellation follows a specific theme. These can be seen in the passives skills represented as stars. For example, improvement to Elder Scrolls Online armor and Elder Scrolls Online weapons can be seen more in the Warrior constellation. Whereas, getting more out of restorative Elder Scrolls Online items can be under the Mage. No details for the passives have been released, however it has been revealed that each star can go up to 100 points. New passives will also be unlocked when the constellation has 10, 30, 75, and 120 points.
