What are Endeavors?

Endeavors are daily and weekly activities you can complete to earn Seals of Endeavors. Seals of Endeavors are a special in-game currency that will allow you to purchase items available from the current crown crates in the store.

ESO Daily Endeavor Sample
ESO Weekly Endeavor Sample

There is an alternative to getting current crown crate items without crowns, crown gems, and Seals of Endeavors. You can make an in-game trade with other player where they will gift you crown crates in exchange for in-game gold. However, this is not a secure process and can be subject to fraud.

How do I find out what the Endeavors are today or this week?

The daily and weekly endeavors are listed in your group activities window.

What are the timers and resets?

Daily endeavors reset at the same times as pledges and daily crafting writs.

Weekly endeavors reset at the same time as pledges and daily early Monday morning (America\Eastern).

You can find these times on the ESO Calendar.

Is the information available outside game?

Yes. I will attempt to post the Daily and Weekly endeavor quests on twitter and on my website on the right side of every site page.

If you use discord, the Dwemer Automaton Bot creators announced endeavors will be available by subscribing to it.
