- For the faction, see The Crowns.
Crowns are a form of premium currency in The Elder Scrolls Online. They were introduced alongside the release of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited and can be used to purchase items in the Crown Store. Crowns can be acquired through multiple means.
Crown packs can be purchased from the official ESO account store for PC/Mac, the Xbox Live Store for Xbox One, and Playstation Store for PS4, all with real-world money. Prices vary by currency and the amount of crowns in the pack:
Other methods of obtaining Crowns
- New players who have purchased the game and created an account will be given a one-time gift of 500 .
- Subscribers of ESO Plus will receive 1,500 each month as part of their subscription.
- Former subscribers of the preceding subscription (which was replaced by ESO Plus on March 6th, 2015, for the One Tamriel Update) would receive 500 for having an existing game account, plus 100 for each 30-day period they have been an active subscriber. They were automatically enrolled in ESO Plus for the rest of their original subscription period, receiving 1,500 crowns for each remaining month.
- Some special contests, such as the Million Reasons to Play contest, can give away Crowns to winners who entered them.
