Champion System changes with ESO Blackwood Chapter: As part of the free update that accompanies the Gates of Oblivion year, the champion system undergoes a revamp.
♦ CP cap is being increased from 810 to 3600
♦ Redesign from 9 to 3 Constellations
♦ Passives can be swapped at anytime out of combat
Champion System was introduced in Elder Scrolls Online in Update 6. It is a Passive Skill system that rewards the player for continuing to play past level 50. Only Players Veteran Rank 1 or higher can earn Champion Points, but once earned can be spent differently for each character the player possesses on his/her account. The Champion System revolves around the Constellations Craft, Warfare, and Fitness.
ESO Champion Points
In the Champion System, all of your level 50 characters earn Champion Points as they participate in activities that grant experience. Only 50+ characters are capable of earning Champion Points, but those they earn are available to all your characters (even non-50 characters). That means any time you earn a Champion Point, each of your characters on that megaserver can spend it however they like. Each character can invest the total number of Champion Points you've earned differently.
The Champion Point cap has been raised to a total of 3600 Champion Points.
Enlightenment is a new mechanic to help you earn Champion Points. Over time, your account will accrue Enlightenment. You do not have to be logged in to accrue Enlightenment.
As you participate in activities that grant experience to your level 50 character, Enlightenment provides you with a bonus to Champion Point progression, helping you earn points faster. Eventually, you may run out of Enlightenment, but don’t worry—more Enlightenment is added to your account every 24 hours.
Activities that grant experience include questing, killing enemies, fighting in Cyrodiil, exploring dungeons and delves, and facing Trials and the Dragonstar Arena.
The Craft is one of the three Greater Constellations in Elder Scrolls Online (ESO), which mainly focuses on utility and sneaking. These constellations are all part of the new Champion System that launched with Flames of Ambition DLC in March 2021. The New Champion system contains three Constellations: Craft, Warfare, and Fitness, each contain dozens of skills that you can use to strengthen your character. Unlike the old Champion system, there are no minor Constellations.
The skills also changed greatly, they no longer provide linear bonuses. Instead, each skill will have different stages, you need to invest enough points to unlock the bonus of each stage.
Each constellation has 4 slots for certain passive skills, and you can swap passives any time out of combat.

The Warrior, The Mage, and The Thief are known as the guardian constellations. They each have three lesser constellations in their charge, and together they represent aspects of power. Every constellation contains different abilities that you can purchase with Champion Points.
When you earn a Champion Point, that point will be assigned to the Warrior, the Thief, or the Mage, in that order. Once you earn a point in the Thief, for instance, your next point will be assigned to the Mage, and the next after that to the Warrior. You choose which of the three constellations under that sign to spend your point on.
