Best Ways to Make Money in ESO Blackwood Chapter

The Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood is releasing in June 2021. Like all of the other ESO Chapters, Blackwood introduces some new ways to earn gold. Hack The Minotaur shows you the best ways to make a decent amount of ESO money in Blackwood.



Farming Companion Gear

The first way to make gold is the Companion system. You would make millions of gold by finding the best Companion gear pieces and selling them to other players.


Why Will Companion Gear Be Expensive

1. Companion Gear Drops Are Rare: Companion gear will be very expensive because they are super rare. Bosses are the best source of Companion gear. But whether it be Delve bosses, Public Dungeon bosses, or Group Dungeon bosses, the drop rates are only around 15%. Thus, there won't be a lot of Companion gear available in the game, especially once the chapter launches. That means players who want the best gear for their Companions but don't want to wait are willing to pay a very high price for the best items for their Companions.


2. Purple Quality of Companion Gear Are Radom: Not only are the drops rare, but the green, blue, and purple quality gear are also random. The purple quality gear will be worth the most to players as it offers the best bonuses in terms of Traits.


3. Not Every Companion Gear Trait Is Very Good: Some Traits will be in high demand because not every Companion gear Trait is that good. There are only a handful of Traits that are beneficial for improving Companion builds. Below are some of the best Traits:

Aggressive increases Companion Damage Done per piece equipped. This Trait is useful for Companion DPS builds.

Vigorous increases your Companion's Health, and it will be great for Companion Tank builds.

Quickened reduces Companion ability Cooldown, which is helpful for Companions. 


These three Traits would be worth the most to players and fetch the highest price if you are willing to sell them. Therefore, when you combine all these factors, including the rare drops, the random pieces with random Traits and random quality, and all the different weapon types and armor weights, the possibility of a player getting the specific piece they want is nearly 1 in 1,000. 


Equipping your Companions with the perfect gear is not something that's going to happen overnight. But there are many players that have more TESO gold and less patience. You would easily sell the piece for a few hundred thousand ESO gold if you can get the right piece of Companion gear with the right Trait and purple quality. 


How to Get Companion Gear

To get Companion Gear, you are going to kill things in any Zone. Bosses have the highest probability of dropping Companion gear, but regular enemies can drop them too. The most important thing to note is that your Companion must be adventuring with you when you kill a creature or boss to get a Companion gear piece drop. No Companion Equals No Drop


Companions are tied to the Blackwood Chapter purchase, so you need to upgrade or buy Blackwood to access the Companion System.


Farming New Overland Sets

There are two new Overland Sets in the Blackwood Zone: Bog Raider set and Frostbite set. Bog Raider set might be popular for both Solo and PvP builds. Frostbite set buffs Frost damage and increases damage against Chilled targets and targets affected by the Minor Brittle debuff, making it a perfect set for Magicka Warden class.

Farming Jewelry in Oblivion Portals

Another thing worth mentioning is that the Jewelry for the two Overland sets will be more difficult to find than you've seen before due to the rarity of Oblivion Portals


Oblivion Portals are extremely rare and hard to find, and there will be a lot of competition for them, which means if you can get into a portal and complete it, you will get the Jewelry drops and sell them for quite a bit of gold. For this reason, you'll want to keep an eye out for those portals and make sure you get to the end as quickly as possible to guarantee the Jewelry piece. 


Those are ways you can use to earn Elder Scrolls Online gold in the Blackwood Chapter. If you like Hack The Minotaur's video and found it informative, don't forget to crush the Like button and subscribe to the channel.
