I’ve been waiting for this day all month… the daily reward is (to me) a fortune!
I find money to very tough to come by in ESO. I’ll quest for 2 hours, finish off 2 or 3 multi-stage quests, and earn enough money to barely cover the repair bills and maybe purchase a single piece of armor. Training horse skills? At 250 gold a pop, I could rarely do that. Fast travel? At 60-100 gold depending on destination, even that ate into my meager cash reserves.
It all changed when I started to pay attention to the daily rewards. Previous months had a total of roughly 15,000 gold spread out over a few days, bunched up at the end of the month (so missing a single day means you miss that reward), often 5,000 gold on the last day. Nevertheless, I’d happily take whatever I could get.
But this, this is game changing for me. I did a double-take when I first saw this on Aug 1 – does that REALLY say 100,000 gold?! I closed the window, re-opened, got closer to the TV and confirmed the 25th daily reward I collect in August will be a giant amount of gold.
Now, I’m not wealthy enough to throw gold left and right, but I have enough now to train a horse on an alt if I wanted to. 3 skills (speed, stamina, capacity), 60 levels per skills, 250 gold per level = 3 * 60 * 250 = 45,000 gold. I could do it… before from the “normal” amount of gold rewarded, I amassed a chest of approximately 20,000 gold, and have been spending it down every since. This is an amazing top off of my funds.
Or I could keep the money on my main character, which I’m leaning towards doing. I’d rather focus on one character over splitting any amount of attention to others. I won’t have to scrounge up money to upgrade my gear, I’ll be able to fast travel places to save time, I can finish off training my horse (I was down to just over 4,000 gold before this daily reward so I was going to have to pause the horse about halfway through), I can increase my bank slots… it’s exciting. 🙂
