Elder Scrolls Online’s new Endeavors dailies offer a new path to lockbox loot

If dailies aren’t your thing in MMOs, you can probably keep on scrolling. But if they are, or if you’re planning to return to Elder Scrolls Online when Blackwood rolls out in June, then you should probably point your eyeballs over at ZeniMax’s latest dev blog, as the studio has today revealed full details on the new endeavors system.

Endeavors are basically dailies and weeklies, but unlike such quests in most games, these aren’t aimed strictly at murderhobos. Crafters, thieves, merchants, and resource junkies are all being rewarded here.

“Here’s how it works: When you log in, you’ll automatically receive various daily and weekly Endeavors that ask you to complete different tasks. These tasks vary across the different play styles and in-game activities. Here’s some examples of the kinds of tasks Endeavors might ask you to do:
• Steal or pickpocket items
• Complete quests
• Defeat enemies using Class or Weapon abilities
• Sell items to vendors
• Craft different types of items
• Defeat different types of monsters
• Harvest resource nodes.”

ZeniMax says the number of dailies and weeklies available will change over time, and in exchange for your efforts, the game will dispense the new currency called, appropriately, Seals of Endeavors. Notably, this currency will allow players to directly purchase any of the items that are in the game’s currently live lockboxes (not historical lockboxes), which is actually a mark in its favor, although you might need to do quite a bit of dailies grinding to get what you’re after.

Endeavors go live with update 30 and will be available for all players whether they pick up Blackwood or not.

Endeavors? LOL. STO now this game. Guess every game will have them eventually. :D

It will be interesting to see what the conversion rate is, what is the seals-gems ratio say? same value? less value?
In principle, it is a really nice idea, but I wonder how much of a grind it will actually turn out to be?

I’m glad Endeavors are a free update, but I’m waiting to hear more about companions before buying into Blackwood. I don’t mind paying 40 bucks for a buddy when I’m barely into Morrowind, and I’d like to know if I can even get a buddy without starting Blackwood’s story and spoiling it

My understanding is that the two Blackwood companions unlock early on in the story, but you will have to play Blackwood far enough to unlock them and then you can do all other content, including previous expansions with them.
