Alliance Points are a PvP currency in Elder Scrolls Online. Players over level 10 can enter Cyrodiil and participate in several activities that earn both Level XP, Skill XP, and the Alliance Point currency.

How to Earn Alliance Points?

Alliance Points eso-alliance-points-pvpcan be earned by killing players, healing players, capturing keeps and resources, defending keeps and resources, and from alliance mission boards.

As of Update 18 (Summerset Chapter), eso-alliance-points-pvpAP distribution for objectives in Cyrodiil has changed. Each type of objective will track whether you've earned credit towards a defense or offense tick. Getting on the credit list is achieved by several actions that already occur in a keep siege, which include:

  • Assisting in killing other player characters within a Keep's area that results in earning eso-alliance-points-pvpAP from that kill.
  • Healing and damaging Keep pieces within the area of a Keep.
  • Resurrecting a player character within a Keep's area in which the player who was resurrected is located, rather than where the player doing the resurrection is standing.
  • Effective healing (non-self) within a Keep's area of a player(s) in a battle that would have resulted in eso-alliance-points-pvpAP being granted from a kill. This includes cases where a player is worth 0 or reduced eso-alliance-points-pvpAP from a recent death, such as respawning at a Forward Camp.

If a credit is sourced between players that are both in areas associated with an objective, the AP awarded to the pool is split 50/50 between the two objectives. Offensive (Capture) ticks still have a base value that will be granted regardless of being on the credit list, but any bonus AP earned by combat around and inside an objective will only be granted to players that are on the credit lists.

You can be on all credit lists for a single Keep Superstructure at the same time (Keep, Mine, Lumbermill and Farm). However, if you attack or defend a new structure (i.e. – a different mine) your credit for the prior structure will be removed. Outposts, Towns and Imperial districts will all overwrite each other in terms of credit lists. Entering a Delve in Cyrodiil wipes your credit from all lists. If your character dies, you will not be cleared from a credit list, but logging out of the game will.

Battlegrounds also grant Alliance Points to players.

Base AP values for Capturing locations in Cyrodiil as of October 2017

  • Capture a Keep 6,000 Alliance Points
  • Capture an Outpost 3,000 Alliance Points
  • Capture a Resource 1,500 Alliance Points
  • Capture a Town (Bruma, etc) 1,500 Alliance Points
  • Capture a district in the Imperial City 1,500 Alliance Points

As of Update 18 (Summerset Chapter), Increased the amount of Alliance Points you can earn from a Keep Defense with a multiplier based on the lowest ranking resource level of that Keep. For example, Keeps that have higher ranks in food, ore and wood, will have a higher defense tick for that Keep. For Resources and Outposts, there is a flat rate increase to the AP you can earn on the defense tick. Districts do not have a modifier to defensive AP. Remember, to earn Defensive AP, you must participate in the defense and not simply show up to watch the fight.


How to Spend Alliance Points?

Alliance points are useful for purchasing several items from different Vendors in Cyrodiil

  • Town Vendors have bags that unlock PvP Sets
  • The "Siege Master" in each alliance base, keep, town and resource sells consumables such as siege weapons and other items
  • Each week, a special NPC sells unique gear for a limited time on weekends. Visit Adhazabi Aba-daro The Golden for details of weekly inventory.


You may also use Alliance points to change your home and guest campaigns. Home campaigns provide you with bonuses based on how your alliance is doing in that campaign. Guest campaigns allow you to play in other campaigns—for instance, to join friends who play in a different campaign. You can switch your home and guest campaigns once every 12 hours independently of each other, but note that switching your home campaign costs 15,000 Alliance points.


What are Alliance Ranks and how to get them?

Alliance Rank is the player's career in PvP. Players obtain titles, skillpoints and unlock Alliance War Skills as they progress in their alliance rank.

  • There are 50 total ranks, with 25 grade one and grade two titles. All Ranks except the first one grant Achievements
  • Each time you earn a PvP rank, you get a skill point. Every other rank, you earn a title.
  • There are several unlockable Furnishings and Dyes.
