Champion Points System

The Champion System in the Elder Scrolls Online is a system of horizontal character development that complements the more vertical progression of Leveling and Skill development. The Champion System is unlocked when one of your characters reaches Level 50. From that point on, experience points provide progression in Champion Points. Champion Points are required to wear Level 50 gear and use Level 50 consumables, and are used to unlock new abilities within the realms of the three Guardian Constellations. Additionally, once a particular rank is reached in each constellation, additional passives are unlocked without needing to spend extra points. Once a Champion Point has been earned, it is added to your account total, and can be spent on all of your characters individually; even those who have not yet reached Level 50. There is a maximum of 3,600 points to unlock.

Champion Points are earned in the following order:

  • ON-icon-Champion Health.png The Warrior: A constellation devoted to health and defense.
  • ON-icon-Champion Stamina.png The Thief: A constellation devoted to stamina and utility.
  • ON-icon-Champion Magicka.png The Mage: A constellation devoted to magic and offense.

The XP required for Champion Point gain is based on the following formula:

(((x / (cap ^ 0.995)) + 0.085) * 400000) if xcap
(((x / (cap ^ 0.995)) + 0.085) * 400000 * 1.5) if x > cap
x is your current number of Champion Points.
The current cap is 690, and you are unable to spend any points that you have earned above this cap. This means you are able to spend 230 points in each of the three constellations.

Enlightenment

While you are Enlightened, experience gain is multiplied by four, effectively reducing the required XP for one Champion Point to a quarter of its original value. Once per day, you receive 400,000 XP of Enlightenment; after your Enlightenment is used up, you will return to requiring the standard amount of XP to earn a Champion Point. Enlightenment accumulates in a pool with a cap of 4,800,000 XP after twelve days. Each single experience point earned through normal gameplay expends four of the stored points in the Enlightenment pool; killing an enemy usually worth 76 XP will give you 304 XP, while completing a standard Level 50 quest will reward you with 29940 XP instead of 7485 XP.

Note that only Level 50 characters can be Enlightened, and the Enlightenment pool is shared across all Level 50 characters on your account.

Perks

When you spend points in any of the four abilities in a given constellation, you will receive special perks at given thresholds of 10, 30, 75, and 120 points spent. At each perk level, you will still keep all of the lower-level perks. With a total of 230 points that can be spent within each of the 3 sets of constellations, it is not yet possible to get the 120 point perk in more than one constellation of the same type. The table below lists the best distribution of points to maximize the number or level of perks you receive. (The Champion Level column lists the level at which you can have this distribution in all three disciplines. Subtract 1 level for The Thief or 2 for The Warrior, as these are available slightly earlier based on the order that points are awarded.)
