Undaunted Pledges are repeatable Group Dungeon quests in The Elder Scrolls Online. They are unlocked at level 45, and accessible through the Undaunted Enclave at the player's Alliance Capital. These special assignments allow the player to continue the quests from the regular dungeons, expanding and bringing them to an ultimate conclusion. You must first take the quest: Taking the Undaunted Pledge
Pledges have undergone some major changes with the release of the One Tamriel update. In the past, there were 2 Daily quests: a Normal and a Veteran, and players were rewarded Bronze, Silver or Gold Keys for their participation. Now there are 3 Daily quests, and these can be run at any difficulty. Running them on Normal rewards 1 Pledge Key. Running them on Veteran rewards 1 Pledge Key and 1 Monster Mask of that Dungeon. Running them on Veteran *hard mode* rewards 2 Pledge Keys along with the Monster Mask of the Dungeon. This means players can potentially acquire 6 Keys a day, if they run each Pledge on Veteran and get the Challenge.
*Veteran hard mode: right before the boss fight, there is usually a scroll on the ground (Scroll of Glorious Battle).... activating it will increase the difficulty. These hard mode bosses also reward a collectible Undaunted bust of that boss for furnishing your home.
There are now 3 NPCs that give these quests instead of 2. They will give players a quest from the following pools and players can use their Pledge Keys to open one of 3 chests, granting a shoulder piece (as well as other loot) from that pool.
As of Scalebreaker DLC in August 14th 2019, the NPCs below have a "store" for players to purchase sets from.
With the Scalebreaker Update, Undaunted Keys will now be located in the currency tab and no longer take up valuable inventory space. You can also now spend your keys directly via a store with the three pledge masters (Urgarlag Chief-bane, Glirion the Redbeard, Maj al-Ragath) in a number of ways which are as follows:
- The mystery coffers now sold by each respective pledge master function similarly to the previous chest interactions. These provide a guaranteed monster set shoulder piece from among the dungeons associated with the pledges that NPC offers, along with a chance at a number of other rewards, for a single key.
- The pledge masters also sell more specialized coffers at a cost of five keys each, and these will provide you with a guaranteed monster set shoulder piece from only two potential sources, allowing you to spend more keys to narrow the potential reward pool.
- The monthly monster shoulder style pages will be available directly from the merchant for 50 keys each, in addition to continuing to be a rare drop from the mystery coffers, at the same rates as previously seen with the Undaunted chests. Note that you’ll need to log in with each character for their pre-existing keys to be converted into this new account-wide currency.
