Fastest Way to Level CP in ESO

By Michel Z2021-03-25

The Jester's Festival is coming on March 25, at 10 AM EDT. During this double XP event, many people will grind ESO Champion Points in the Elder Scrolls Online. In this guide, NefasQS shares with you a grind spot that is great for both getting Champion Points and leveling your character from level 3 to level 50.



At this point, Spellscar is known as the prime grind spot for many players. It yields a lot more XP than many other grind spots. However, the problem is that it is a popular and well-known spot, and right now, there are many people already crowding the multiple instances of Craglorn to get the most XP. 


What's left besides the overland spots or pre-2017 Public Dungeons? You can grind in Skyreach Catacombs, which is instance and perfect for you and your grind partner. You can also clear Alik'r Desert Dolmens or grind XP in Forgotten Wastes (not instance), which can be nice sometimes. If you have the Elder Scrolls Online gold, you can use Alchemy, Provisioning, or whatever Writs, which you can turn in for a bunch of XP.


But, what if you don't have gold, or you can't compete well in Spellscar? Great news! Normal Blackrose Prison (nBRP), which you can find in the Murkmire zone, yields much better XP gain than all of the listed alternatives to Spellscar. Normal Blackrose Prison is also a good place for those players who transfer from console to PC to grind levels and Champion Points.


As a quick comparison in 30 minutes, you would get:

Skyreach: 1.2-1.4M XP

Forgotten Wastes (not instance): 1-1.2M XP

Normal Blackrose Prison: 1.6-1.9M XP


On average, if you are getting one level per Skyreach run from level 40 to level 50 without a double XP event, you would get three levels per normal Blackrose Prison run with the same conditions.


How to Grind XP in Normal Blackrose Prison

The method to grind XP in normal Blackrose Prison is pretty straightforward:

1. Have a grind partner. You will get the most XP if you are in a group of two. Make sure one of you has a Silver Leash or Chains. It doesn't matter if you and your partner are doing this on Magicka or Stamina DPS. 


2. Use 150% XP scrolls or pots with training gear. If you worry about losing damage, you can use Sigils.


3. You'll want only to do the first four stages of the first arena. Doing the Boss or going beyond is a sort of time loss, and thus, XP loss. Leave the instance before the fifth stage of the first arena, then reset it and do it again. The entire process takes about 3-4 minutes, depending on how fast you are.
