There are many ways to make money in The Elder Scrolls Online, but with the new expansion chapter coming up this month, I can’t help but share some relatively easy ways to make money specifically in ESO Blackwood.
Daily quests are the most obvious and perhaps one of the easiest ways to make money in Blackwood. It is a fairly simple method that asks players to slay world bosses and venture into various delves.
It is not the fastest way to make gold, but it is always a reliable one, as you will get a bunch of rewards that can sell for a decent amount of gold, like furnishing recipes for example.
Clearing out Oblivion Portals nets you furnishing recipes, jewelry, leads for antiquities, and a lot of other awesome rewards. Oblivion Portals are not particularly hard to do, and if you team up with a friend you’ll get through them in no time. The name of the game is “kill and collect,” no special trick here, so gear up and get to killing.
The only downside is that Oblivion Portals are incredibly rare and hard to find. Don’t even get me started on the competition you will face over them.
Hunting down Antiquities
The Blackwood expansion comes with a bunch of new antiquities. In order to track them down, you will need leads.
That said, if I were you, I’d mix the Oblivion Portals and the Antiquities methods together. By doing that you get a very effective way of making money in ESO Blackwood, as doing Oblivion Portals will grant you leads to antiquities, which you can then track them down and sell for a lot of gold.
Farming Companion gear
This method requires you to keep a companion with you at all times. Besides that, all you have to do is kill mobs. The higher the enemy level, the better the odds are that it will drop companion gear. Once you’ve gotten your hands in companion gear, head to any guild trader and sell it.
Farming Overland sets
The ESO Blackwood expansion brought us two new overland sets: the Bog Raider set and the Frostbite set. The Bog raider set is incredibly good for PvP, and also for the whole “lone rider” playstyle. On the other hand, the Frostbite set buffs frost damage and increases damage against enemies who are weaker to frost damage, so it is perfect for Magicka users. Of course, all that is irrelevant since the plan isn’t to keep these sets, but to sell them.
Finding these sets is no easy task. To get these two sets, you will have to venture into a lot of delves and kill bosses. To get the head, chest, legs, and weapons, you will have to kill world bosses. Public dungeon bosses drop the shoulders, hands, and weapons, and Dark Anchors and chests will drop the rings and necklaces.
And they are rare drops, so you are in for a lot of work. But if you do get your hands on the full sets, you will get a lot of gold. Like, a lot.
