ESO Tales Of Tribute Patron Card Deck Treasury
Tales of Tribute is coming with ESO's High Isle in June! ToT will feature 8 unique card decks and 8 unique patrons with unique abilities.

Tales Of Tribute, A New In-game Adventure

Tales of Tribute (ToT – to save a ton of typing) is coming in June 2022 with The Elder Scrolls Online’s newest chapter release named High Isle.  This release will be the first chapter and the 2nd installment of content in the year-long Legacy of the Bretons.

There is an introductory article on ToT, and a deep-dive into ToT gameplay if you’d like to take a look.  This article will focus on the card decks.  

Once you complete the quest to play ToT, you will receive 4 unique card decks.  Everyone will receive the same first 4 decks.  Those decks are Saint Pelin, Grandmaster Elmene Hlaalu, Duke of Crows, and Psijic Loremaster Celarus.

Throughout the gameplay and other exploration activities of Tamriel, you can earn other decks by fragments which can then be combined into decks.  Clues can also be acquired to such deck fragments.

Each deck has a unique theme and a unique patron.  You are permitted at least one patron activity per turn and they should be used to your advantage.  You can also win the game immediately if you gain the favor of all 4 patrons.

Saint Pelin, Tribute Patron

This is one of the decks awarded with the beginning quest.

“High Rock’s Heroic stand against the Gray Hose in 1E.1029 is the stuff of legends.  How better to commemorate that grand victory than with a Tale of Tribute?  Focusing on the heroic beadle, Saint Pelin, this deck will hold your opponent at bay just like the iron gates of the Bankgkorai Garrison!”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Saint Pelin will depend if you are neutral, favored, or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.  

If Saint Pelin is in a NEUTRAL position when you interact with him, you will pay 2 Power and have 1 agent card in your cooldown.  Then the interaction will return up to 1 agent card from your cooldown to the top of your draw.  This patron will now FAVOR you.  

If Saint Pelin FAVORS you, you will pay 2 Power and have 1 agent card in your cooldown.  Then the interaction will return up to 1 agent from your cooldown to the top of your draw pile.  No other status change will occur.

If you are UNFAVORED by Saint Pelin, you will pay 2 Power and have 1 agent card in your cooldown.  Then the interaction will return up to 1 agent card from your cooldown to the top of your draw.  This patron will then become NEUTRAL.

Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu, Tribute Patron

This is one of the decks awarded with the beginning quest.

“Of all the Great Houses of Morrowind, none can rival the insatiable greed of House Hlaalu.  Hearkening back to the end of the Four-Score War and the Hlaalu’s age of gilded glory, Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu will guide you to ever greater prestige and profit!”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu will depend if you are neutral, favored, or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.  

If Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu is in a NEUTRAL position when you interact with him, you sacrifice 1 card you own in play that cost 1 or more coins.  Then the interaction will gain you Prestige equal to the card’s cost minus 1.  This patron will now FAVOR you.  

If Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu FAVORS you, you sacrifice 1 card you own in play that cost 1 or more coins.  Then the interaction will gain you Prestige equal to the card’s cost minus 1.  No other status change will occur.

If you are UNFAVORED by Grandmaster Delmene Hlaalu, you will sacrifice 1 card you own in play that cost 1 or more coins.  Then the interaction will gain you Prestige equal to the card’s cost minus 1.  This patron will then become NEUTRAL.

The Duke Of Crows, Tribute Patron

This is one of the decks awarded with the beginning quest.

“Rumors of talking crows swirl in taverns and guild halls across the continent.  The Duke of Crows deck explores the origins of this strange Blackfeather fellowship and its ceaseless quest for shiny treasures!”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Duke of Crows will depend if you are neutral, favored or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.

If the Duke of Crows FAVORS you, it becomes unusable.  There is no benefit.

Psijic Loremaster Celarus, Tribute Patron

This is one of the decks awarded with the beginning quest.

“The mysterious Psijics return to Tamriel!  Led by the enigmatic Loremaster Celarus, the Order of the PSJJJ attends to some mysterious business here in Tamriel – and inspires this deck of replenishment and rejuvenation.”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Psijic Loremaster Celarus will depend if you are neutral, favored, or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.

“Emerging from the mists of Pyandonea, the undying king of the Sea Elves sails froth to do battle!  This deck spins tales of brine and bloodshed, tracking on of Orgnum’s most devastating raids on the High Elf fleet.  Now, you can step into this villain’s soggy boots and unleash attacks of your own!”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Sorcerer-King Orgnum will depend if you are neutral, favored or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.

If Sorcerer-King Orgnum FAVORS you, you pay 3 coin.  Then the interaction will gain you 1 Power for every 4 cards you own, rounded down.  It will also create a Maormer Boarding Party card and place it in your cooldown.  No other status change will occur.

If you are UNFAVORED by Sorcerer-King Orgnum, you pay 3 coin.  Then the interaction will gain you 2 Power.  This patron will then become NEUTRAL.

Rajhin, The Purring Liar, Tribute Patron

This deck can be awarded by acquiring clues to find deck fragments.  Fragments can then be combined into the deck.

“Trickster, thief, and . . . diety!  This deck tracks the cunning cat, Rajhin, on one of his most legendary heists – stealing the Amulet of Kings from Empress Alessia!  Is this story true?  Who can say?  The Purring Liar leaves everyone bewildered!”

You must meet the requirements for patrons before they can be used. If you do meet the requirements, the patron will glow. Your patron interaction with Rajhin, the Purring Liar will depend if you are neutral, favored, or unfavored.  All patrons begin neutral.

The Treasury, Tribute Patron #9?

Indeed this is correct.  There is yet another patron and deck of cards involved in ToT.  This patron is the Treasury.  It is in every game.  The Treasury has its own cards that are mixed with the player’s 4 decks.

As you might expect, Treasury cards are coin-related.  To interact with this patron, you pay 2 coin.  In return, you choose a card (ideally a single gold coin card) that is exchanged for a writ card that grants you 2 coins the next time you use it.

The Treasury remains neutral at all times and available for 2 coin to either player.  Consequently, the Treasury does not apply to the 4-patron-favored-win condition.

Is There A Future For ToT?

It is clear there is plenty of room for ESO to expand ToT in the future.  Adding new card decks and patrons, adding new cards to existing decks, adding clues to deck fragments – the list could go on.  ToT can be played PVP or against NPCs and there will be a PVP ranking system.  Rewards will be given just for playing regardless if you win or lose.  Winning rewards will, of course, be better.  We all anxiously await June and the release of High Isle.
