Crown Crates are an addition to the ESO Crown Store that will give you a chance to obtain exclusive and unique pets, mounts, and more alongside useful consumable items.
The first season of Crown Crates was introduced on December 1st 2016 to the ESO Crown Store. Crown Crates are purchased through the Crown Store, and contain a randomized selection of useful consumables and collectibles that are valued more than the price of a single crate. In addition, they also offer a chance to obtain unique cosmetic items, pets, or mounts. Crown Crates include new and exclusive items, as well as some items you might have missed in previous limited time offers.
Whenever you purchase a Crown Crate, you will always be awarded four items, with the chance to get a fifth item. In the event you receive a mount, pet, costume or personality that you already own from your Crown Crate, you'll be awarded a new resource - Crown Gems - in its place. You will also have the option to convert several items obtained from Crown Crates to Crown Gems any time you want. Items that can be manually converted include potions, poisons, riding lessons, experience scrolls, and other utility-type items. Any Crown Gems you earn can then be used to purchase the collectible items of your choosing from the current Crown Crate season.
Each Crown Crate is associated with a special “Season" that will include uniquely themed items, and will be cycled quarterly. ESO is kicking off the first season of Crown Crates with the electrifying Storm Atronach theme. This Season will give you the chance to acquire the following themed items:
Storm Atronach Bear, Storm Atronach Camel & Storm Atronach Guar
Storm Atronach Horse, Storm Atronach Senche & Storm Atronach Wolf
Storm Atronach Aura, Storm Atronach Transform & Storm Orb Juggle
You can purchase a single Crown Crate for 400 crowns. ESO also offers Crown Crate bundles, where you can get four Crates for 1500 crowns, or 15 Crates for 5000 crowns.
