The Elder Scrolls: Blades has left early access and has hit the Nintendo eShop as a free download. The news comes straight from Bethesda. 

For those unversed, The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a free-to-play spin-off of The Elder Scroll RPG series and sees players building and upgrading a town by taking on an assortment of quests and tackling roguelike dungeons. You can see the launch trailer below to get a better idea of the game's mechanics:

The launch of the Nintendo Switch version coincides with the release of the latest 1.7 update to the game as well. According to Bethesda, additions include:

  • New quests in a gauntlet-type mode: Brand new quests have been added, including one that is similar to The Elder Scrolls: Blades PvP mode.
  • Arena rewards and guild leaderboards: The leaderboards have been reset and all players who already ranked will receive gems, health potions, and chests based on which arena they've reached previously.
  • A free gift: Players will receive a brand-new decoration the next time they log in.

Players of the mobile version are able to pick up where they left off on the Nintendo Switch with cross-progression between the two versions. All players have to do is simply link their Bethesda.net account on both platforms.

For new players, the Nintendo Switch version also offers a Quick Start Edition, which gifts players 30,000 Gold, 2,000 Gems, building materials, the exclusive Sylvan Fountain decoration, and rare gear once owned by the Bloodfall King. All of this is bundled in one package for $14.99.

You can download The Elder Scrolls: Blades on the Nintendo eShop now or download the update on mobile devices.

Elder Scrolls Blades Chests Guide — How To Farm Gold Chests Effectively https://www.gameskinny.com/wih7l/elder-scrolls-blades-chests-guide-how-to-farm-gold-chests-effectively https://www.gameskinny.com/wih7l/elder-scrolls-blades-chests-guide-how-to-farm-gold-chests-effectively Wed, 10 Apr 2019 14:25:12 -0400 Ty Arthur

Now that the Elder Scrolls Blades can't play bug is (mostly) fixed, we can finally get onto the freemium business of waiting for timers to count down so those loot chests will open!

As expected, not all chests are worth the wait time, and below we explain exactly which chests to open and from what jobs to get the best loot.

Note that as an early access release only available on a small subsection of mobile devices, this Elder Scrolls Blades chests guide is subject to change as updates arrive. We'll work to keep it up to date, but if you see any outdated info please let us know in the comments!

Update 4/11: Silver chests now only take 1 hour to open, and both wood and elder chests have been added to the job board mystery rotation. Check out the updated list below.

Elder Scrolls Blades Chests Opening Guide

 Now we start the waiting game...

Before we get into the right pattern to follow to avoid silver chests and get gold chests, keep in mind that chest loot scales with your level. In other words, its better to wait to open any chests until you've leveled up a bit if at all possible.

One other thing has to immediately be made very clear -- do not, under any circumstances, buy the extra chest slots.

There is absolutely no benefit to spending gems to increase your chest inventory. In fact, it's actively detrimental and a waste of resources -- because no matter how many chests you can hold, you can only open one a a time, and critically you can only discard chests if your chest slots are full

That's important because our chest opening strategy hinges entirely on keeping your chest inventory at full capacity at all times.

 No you would not!

Which Chests To Open And When

The one thing you need to know above all else is that silver chests are not your friend. There's even a petition on the sub-Reddit right now to change the downvote button to a silver chest icon, so that ought to tell you how well received they are by the early access community so far.

The waiting period isn't worth the rewards offered. Instead, you want to only open wood chests (which only have 5 second timers) or gold / elder chests, which give better rewards.

To get the best loot and avoid needless timers, you want to always keep your chest inventory at a full 10, preferably with a wooden chest normally in the 10th slot. That way, you can open it immediately with only a five second timer whenever you need to pick up a gold chest, or you can keep the wood chest on the 10th slot so you can discard useless silver chests as they are rewarded to you.

So how do you know what kind of chests are coming to make this strategy work?

Story quests directly show you what the rewards will be, while anything chosen on the jobs board (after re-building the smithy) will usually only show a "mystery box."

Here's the thing though -- those "mystery" boxes actually follow a specific pattern discovered by Reddit user Anuiran (and bless you for it!). Here's the specific pattern, which repeats after acquiring the 500th chest:

By using this pattern, you can potentially farm multiple gold chests a day with some persistence and note taking by leaving an open chest slot on the eighth job, 21st job and so on. Note that there is a maximum of 100 jobs that can be completed per day, however!

Elder Scrolls Blades Not Letting Me Play, Device Not Supported Help https://www.gameskinny.com/453md/elder-scrolls-blades-not-letting-me-play-device-not-supported-help https://www.gameskinny.com/453md/elder-scrolls-blades-not-letting-me-play-device-not-supported-help Mon, 01 Apr 2019 22:36:26 -0400 Ty Arthur

After Skyrim managed to hit just about every device and console known to man, it shouldn't have been much of a surprise that we'd eventually get an actual mobile Elder Scrolls entry.

The Elder Scrolls: Blades is finally here in early access, but unfortunately only a small number of people have actually been able to log in and try it out at this point.

Update: Blades should now be available for everyone to access without a waiting period. If you still can't get in, make sure to submit a ticket to Bethesda using the link in the article below.

Error such as "device not supported" and "device not compatible" as well as a frustrating forced waiting period are keeping most players from doing anything but try out the combat tutorial. Ready to start playing right now? Let's take a look at what can be done to get into the game.

Elder Scrolls Blades Device Not Supported Error

 Most players are currently seeing some form of this screen at all times

Bethesda hasn't actually released the exact minimum required specs for Blades at this point, so it isn't quite clear which players are getting this error incorrectly and which just don't have the required hardware.

Based on who can currently play, Elder Scrolls Blades appears to have crazy high requirements for a mobile game. Simply put, unless you've got a newer iPhone or an Android device with 3GB of RAM, you won't be playing at all.

A few devices with 2GB are currently working, but only if they have higher end mobile CPUs. 

While there's no spec requirements listed anywhere, Bethesda did release an official list of supported devices for this stage of early access. To actually get in and play, you'll need one of these:

  • iPhone 6s or newer
  • iPhone SE
  • iPad Pro
  • iPad Mini 4 and 5
  • iPad Air 2 and 3
  • Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+
  • Samsung Galaxy S10/S10+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 9
  • Google Pixel 2/2XL
  • Google Pixel 3/3XL
  • OnePlus 5 and newer
  • Moto Z2 Force
  • Moto Z3
  • Essential Phone
  • HTC U11/U11+
  • HTC U12+
  • LG V30
  • LG G7 One
  • Xiaomi Mi 6
  • Xiaomi Mi Mix 2
  • Xperia XZ Premium
  • Xperia XZ1
  • Razer Phone
  • ZTE Nubia Z17
  • Nokia 8
  • Sharp Aquos R
  • Asus ZenFone 4 Pro
  • Huawei P20/P20 Pro
  • Huawei Mate 20 Pro
  • OnePlus 6T

Elder Scrolls Blades Not Letting Me Play Workaround

If you meet the device requirements, a Bethesda account is still required to play and you have to register for the early access launch, so if you haven't done that yet, check out full instructions here.

Those players who got ahead of the game and pre-registered on the official Blades website (not through the Google Play or Apple stores) before March 25 are supposed to have immediate access with no waiting. 

If you can't login and get the limited access screen even though you pre-registered before the 25th, head over here and submit a ticket to get that rectified as soon as possible.

Everyone else has to wait in line for a spot to come available, with frequent reports of players waiting 48 hours or longer!

So, what can you do to get through the wait and log in?

The most important thing here is to turn on notifications for the app in your device's settings. If that's not on, you aren't getting your invite, but don't stop there.

As expected in an early access launch, there are already plenty of bugs and things are slipping through the cracks. Many players aren't getting notifications at all, even when the option is turned on, so if it has been a few hours and you haven't received a pop up yet, it's time to check the issue manually.

Close the app entirely, then re-open it and login in again. After going through the combat tutorial, you may be able to log in and play even though your device didn't notify you that you've been let through the gate.
