Players in the online iteration of Tamriel have been able to enjoy free access to all of the bonuses of the usually subscription only Elder Scrolls Online plus service. For existing subscribers this means free “Crown Crates” which provide an RNG chance at highly sought after loot box only mounts. We’ve written in the past how paid for RNG chests can be addicting and recently were ruled analogous to gambling in the European Union.
Benefits of the ESO+ trial that runs from now until Monday the 30th of April includes:
- 10% increase to all experience earned.
- An unlimited storage crafting bag.
- Double the placement space for furnishings and collectibles in housing / private rooms.
- Doubling of your character’s personal inventory and bank space.
ESO plus also includes access to the following DLC packs while a subscription is active:
- Imperial City
- Thieves Guild
- Dark Brotherhood
- Shadow of the Hist
- Horns of the Reach
- Clockwork City
- Dragon Bones
To activate the ESO+ trial simply head on over to the in-game crown store once logged in and claim the ESO+ trial item to begin.
I personally always look forward to these free trial periods as I let my subscription lapse around November of last year and have found little reason to re-up. Whenever the trial comes around I’ll run as many dungeons and Cyrodil Alliance Wars as I can over the weekend to stuff as many resources into the crafting bag as I can. For someone who plays a merchant ad likes to collect gold to buy new housing items – the ESO+ trial is a good time sink.
