Tales of Tribute Mechanics Guide

How to play Tales of Tribute

  • Each player has to select two decks (Patrons) at the start of a Tales of Tribute Match in ESO (Elder Scrolls Online). The first player picks the first and last deck, while the second player picks the second and third deck. Once you have selected all four, the decks will combine to create a "Tavern" in the middle of the board, which is a shared collection of cards from all four selected decks. There are currently 8 different decks available to choose from.

  • There are three different resources in the game, visualized by numbers shown on your side of the board. The first resource is Coin. Coin is used to buy cards from the Tavern or buy favour of some Patrons. You get Coin from various card effects. Any Coin that is unused at the end of your turn will be discarded, so try to plan your moves so that you don't waste any.

  • The second resource is Power. You can spend power to attack your opponent's agent cards by clicking on them. This will subtract your power value from the health of that card until the card's health reaches zero or you run out of power. Some agents can be very powerful and things can get out of control if you let your opponent keep several agents in play, so it's sometimes worth doing this. Any unspent power at the end of your turn will be added to your prestige value, explained below.

  • Prestige is the third and final resource in the game. Prestige is basically the score of each player, and the objective of the game is to amass the most Prestige. Usually you get Prestige from Power as explained above, however there are some cards that directly increase Prestige. When a player reaches 40 Prestige, their opponent will have one turn to exceed their Prestige total, otherwise they lose the game. If you do manage to beat their score, then the game effectively enters a “sudden death” situation, where the first time someone fails to beat their opponent's Prestige score, they lose the game.

  • You will also probably want to make use of the Patrons on the right side of the board. Have a look at them when you are playing to see what their price & reward is, and don't be afraid to make use of their services as they can sometimes be very powerful.

  • During the early stages of the game, it's a good idea to choose the chest icon in the middle of the Patrons area, which will cost 2 gold and allow you to convert one of your cards into a Writ of Coin card which gives you 2 Coin, which will help you to afford the more powerful cards from the Tavern later in the game.

 

Tales of Tribute Time Limit

In Tales of Tribute, each turn has a 90 seconds time limit. If a player stay idle for a full turn, meaning they don't activate any cards, their next turn will shortened to 20 seconds. If a player is idle for 3 turns in a row they automatically forfeit the game.

 

Tales of Tribute Game Modes

The Tales of Tribute can be played against NPCs or other players.

Ranked matches allows players to play against other players to increase their tier and standing on the Tales of Tribute leaderboard. Players receive rewards for winning or losing, and these matches count toward advancing Tribute quests.

Casual matches allows players to face off other players without increasing or decreasing their tier or standing on the Tales of Tribute leaderboard. Players receive rewards for winning or losing and the matches also count towards advancing Tribute quests.

NPC matches don't affect a player's tier or standing on the leaderboards. Players will earn rewards for winning or losing based on the challenged NPCs difficulty rating. Players can also make progress on quests when playing against NPCs.

Friendly matches with other players are entirely for fun and offer no rewards and don't advance quests.

 

Tales of Tribute Game Tiers & Leaderboard

Tales of Tribute game features four tiers of play and one leaderboard that resets every month.

At the start of each Tales of Tribute seasons, you must complete five placement matches. Victories and losses in these initial matches determine your starting tier. Players can also benefit from their previous season's tier. You can potentially earn up to four free placement match wins based on how far you progressed. Each ranked match will earn you points that increase your tier and your standing on the leaderboard of the Tales of Tribute card game in ESO.

After reaching Rubedite tier, players enter the Tales of Tribute leaderboard where placement is determined by win rate. At the end of the season, players receive rewards based on both tier and placement on the leaderboard, with the top 10% and 2% of the leaderboard earning special rewards.

Duke of Crows

Amount of cards: 13

Obtained by completing the Tales of Tribute tutorial.

My quest for information led me to a pocket realm known only as the Crow's Wood. Its most notable inhabitants are a murder of intelligent, talking birds who consider the place to be their personal kingdom. The Duke of Crows, the proudest of the flock, presides over the rest. As he tells it, he's "the smartest and biggest and loudest" crow in the murder.

The rest of the flock clusters and conspires around the Duke, plotting and politicking for status and favor. Woe betide any who get between these ravens and their “shinies.”

—Ulysa Rervam, Proctor of Daedric Studies

The Duke of Crow’s cards focus on creating combos that let you draw more cards,” explains Irenio Calmon-Huang, one of the Senior Systems Designers behind Tales. “It benefits from going heavily into the suit, perhaps more than any other deck. If you can reach the tipping point you may find yourself drawing most of your deck in a single turn.”

When activating the Duke of Crows’ Patron ability, you can gain a large amount of power quickly, but at a cost.

“The Duke of Crows, like his many subjects, adores shinies. He offers you power in exchange for Coin, while skimming a bit off the top. Unlike many other patrons, while he favors you, he will not offer you anything else. So, it is wise to save your use of the Duke for when you can really cash in your Coin for power or a patron victory.”

GRANDMASTER DELMENE HLAALU

Amount of cards: 13

Obtained by completing the Tales of Tribute tutorial.

After the Four-Score War, Northeastern Tamriel was a corpse bloating in the sun. Enter the Great Houses. Out at the front, swooping in to feast on the carcass, was House Hlaalu. Their leader was old man Delmene Hlaalu, who wrested power from the last house elder in a “bloodless” coup that still saw half a dozen fetchers thrown to the guar.

—Naryu Virian

“Like most of House Hlaalu, this grandmaster merchant’s deck is centered around acquiring goods,” explains Irenio. “Generating lots of Coin or directly laying claim to cards from the Tavern are this deck’s strengths.”

If you wish to activate the Grandmaster’s Patron ability, the bigger the sacrifice, the bigger the rewards.

“Playing into the ability to generate lots of wealth and thus afford really expensive cards, Delmene Hlaalu allows you to trade cards gained from the Tavern for Prestige. This can be a direct strategy to victory if you’re buying and gaining lots of cards early on, or it can be used to help you cross the line at the very end.”

SAINT PELIN

Amount of cards: 13

Obtained by completing the Tales of Tribute tutorial.

You've heard the tale as my mother tells it, no doubt. Saint Pelin, giving his life in faith to defeat the massing Gray Host. Stendarr filling him with an "ocean of blood," so the bat-men could drink him dry again and again and again.

I ride in the Saint's name not because of children's tales, but because what faith, sword, and shield can do in the here and now. We hold the pass. We protect the weak. All in hopes we can be as brave as a humble chapel attendant like Pelin.

—Dame Aurenn Rodeau, the Order of Saint Pelin

“Saint Pelin’s cards excel at two things: generating Power and getting agents with taunt onto the field,” says Irenio. “Several of Saint Pelin’s agents are also excellent power generators themselves, helping push through your opponent’s agents and then propelling you to a Prestige victory.”

If you need to put bodies between you and your opponent, Saint Pelin has reinforcements ready.

“Saint Pelin himself can restore agents from your cooldown to the top of your draw pile, getting them quickly back onto the field. One of the most opportune moments to call upon this patron power is also when you first lay claim to an agent from the Tavern, sending them to the top of your deck so you’ll draw them immediately!”

PSIJIC LOREMASTER CELARUS

Amount of cards: 12

Obtained by completing the Tales of Tribute tutorial.

The Psijic Order is a circle of Mages who reside on the mystic isle of Artaeum. But who is Loremaster Celarus, really? A wise scholar and thoughtful if remote sage who seeks balance in all things.

Apprentices report, when asked, that they're more accustomed to seeing Celarus as a sort of one-Mer containment squad, seeking to bind any item or force that might disrupt the Aurbic forces of Tamriel. I have it on good authority that the Loremaster is willing do whatever it takes to protect the isle and the people of Nirn.

—The Arch-Mage Salarth

“Loremaster Celarus’s cards let you sift through the top of your draw pile and can grant you control over what is available from the Tavern,” explains Irenio. “This can speed up your deck, getting you to your more potent cards faster while also helping you find cards and denying your opponent the cards they wanted.”

Celarus’s ability can help you control your opponents’ side of the board as much as your own.

“While the Psijic Order is largely centered around defense, the ability to knock unconscious an enemy can be incredibly useful. When Celarus is available, he’ll help deal with any pesky agents no matter how powerful they may be. He is particularly potent against contract agents, ensuring that they seldom survive more than one round against you.”
