There was an announcement on the official website (elderscrollsonline.com) that explained the new changes to the Twitch Drop claiming process. Here is a quick mobile-friendly summary.
What is the same?
- Players will still have to link their ESO account(s) to their Twitch Account(s). This process has not changed: EN, FR, DE, RU
- One drop per day.
- A code redemption email will be sent to the email associated with your ESO account.
What are Drops?
Drops are a special promotion program where players can obtain free in-game items by linking their game accounts with their twitch.tv accounts and watching streams participating in drops campaigns.

Any drops that I’m aware of are posted on my ESO Calendar.
What is new?
- When a stream is Drops-enabled, you’ll get a notification popup letting you know they are live, in addition to a tag on the streamer’s page
- Per Twitch’s guidelines, you must watch a Drops-enabled stream for at least 15 cumulative minutes
- You can track your progress on earning a Twitch Drop via https://www.twitch.tv/drops/inventory
- You are guaranteed a Drop once you meet the 15 minute requirement
- Once you earn a Drop, a chat notification will appear that you must select to claim the Drop
- Alternatively, you can claim the Drop via https://www.twitch.tv/drops/inventory
- Once claimed, the Drops will be added to your account and you can find them in game as usual
- According to ZOS via twitch.tv, viewers will have 24 hours to claim their drop after the campaign ends.
If watching on console, you will need to swap to PC or Mobile to visit this page and claim your rewards
In some cases you may have a limited time to claim your Drops, so be sure to grab them as soon as you see the notification
