Tel Var Stones are new “currency” in ESO that can be earned within the Imperial City location only and spent for cool pieces of gear or crafting resources at special trading posts. It’s a new mechanics that makes gameplay much more interesting.
Let’s start from the lore. The lore of Elder Scrolls Online tells that these stones are small pieces of the White-Gold Tower splintered from the structure during Molag Bal's attempt to pull the tower into Coldharbour. They contain some sort of unknown arcane power and therefore are valuable. Different enchanters and mages are looking for these stones in order to use their power. But for us they are valuable because we can receive some cool stuff exchanging them at special store.
There are 4 major reasons to collect Tel Var Stones:
The great thing about these rewards is that you can sell all the items except Sigil of Imperial Retreat to other players. This can be a very good source of income.
Every alliance has its base in the Imperial City. This base is a safe place. There is a special room inside every base where special Tel Var merchants are standing and waiting for you.
You can receive Tel Var Stones within the Imperial City only! When you enter this location you will see a new counter in your User Interface. This counter appears in the bottom-right part of the screen. It shows the amount of the stones you currently have and the multiplier (the role of multiplier is described below). Note, that you can see this UI when you are in the Imperial City only! It will disappear after you exit this location.
You can loot Tel Var Stones only inside Imperial City! Monsters and players in other locations will not reward you with this currency. Thus, the only way to grind Tel Var Stones is to play inside the Imperial City location.
You don’t need to loot the currency. It will be automatically added when you receive it. There are several ways to receive the stones:
Imperial City is a PvP location and you will meet a lot of enemy players. When you kill representative of other faction you receive ALL the stones he is carrying with him. If you like to PvP this is another great reward for your success.
If the enemy you killed didn’t have stones you will get nothing.
You receive different amount of Tel Var Stones when you kill different monsters. The amount you receive depends on the strength of the monster, on the number of players and on your current multiplier. The multiplier rewards you for carrying the stones with you. The more arcane currency you have with you, the more you receive from killing monsters. Here is how it works:
|Stones you have||Multiplier||Number of the stones you loot from monster|
|1 – 100||You receive normal amount of stones from all monsters.|
|100 – 1000||You receive doubled amount of stones from all monsters.|
|1000 – 10,000||You receive tripled amount of stones from all monsters.|
|10,000 and more||Maximum possible reward. Four stones instead of one for every stone you loot from a dead monster!|
Note: the multiplier affects PvE encounters only. It doesn’t work in PvP.
The amount of stones you receive also depends on the number of players who took part in battle and is spitted between all of them in relatively equal shares. For example if 6 players are fighting against a boss with 600 pieces of arcane currency and kill him, 4 players will receive 67 stones and 2 players will get 66. It's completely random who will get the smaller share.
You can lose or gain Tel Var Stones within the Imperial City only! If you are in other locations you can’t gain or lose them.
If other player kills you, he will take all the stones you were carrying with you. That’s the most important rule you need to know. On the one hand carrying a lot of arcane currency is great because you have increased multiplier and thus receive much more from killing monsters. But on the other hand you can lose all Tel Var currency if you are killed by player.
If you are killed by a monster within the Imperial City you lose 10% of the stones you have with you.
Here is an example of how one player can earn stones by killing enemy players from other factions.
As you see saving Tel Var currency is very important because it’s easy to lose it. There are several ways to save your stones:
Always keep in mind that the amount of the stones you are carrying unsafe affects the multiplier! Every player has to choose if he wants to keep his multiplier high with a risk of losing all the aracne currency, or to deposit the currency and lower the multiplier. High risk = high gains.
