Tales Of Tribute And How To Play

ESO Tales Of Tribute Gameplay

Tales of Tribute is an exciting new card game that you can play throughout Tamriel.   PVE matches and PVP matches (with an accompanying ranking system) are available.  The best part is that you receive rewards for playing.  Winning rewards are much better.  In addition to Roister’s Clubs where you can play other NPCs, you can also play other players using the Activity Finder.  You have a choice between Ranking matches or Unranked matches. 

There are 2 daily quests involving Tales of Tribute.  One requires you to travel areas of Tamriel for specific matches.  You can return after winning your match or win 3 and return for an even bigger reward.  The second requires you to match against other players.  Likewise, if you can return for a reward after the first match, but you can also win up to 3 matches and return the daily for an even bigger reward.  

How To Win Tales Of Tribute

There are two primary ways to win ToT – acquire 40 Prestige or receive the favor of all 4 patrons.  If you reach 40, your opponent has one final hand to match or exceed your total but if you gain patron favor, the game is instantly concluded.  

In The Beginning

Each player begins the match with 10 cards.  6 of those cards are gold-bearing cards.  The rest of the decks are shuffled into the Tavern (center area).  There are 5 cards laid out for either player to use in each hand.  Since the first player gets the first choice of the tavern cards, the opposing player gets an extra gold for his first turn.

Turn Timer Is Active

Another important note:  there is a turn timer.  Each player has 90 seconds to complete their turn.  If 90 seconds, elapses, the turn ends automatically.  When you are ready to complete your turn, you simply activate the timer.  While playing with NPCs, I didn’t really find this an issue.  I didn’t have any issues with this in pvp games either. 

Modes Of Game Play

There are several different modes of play in ToT.  Ranked mode is where players play each other to increase their tier and standing on the ToT leaderboard.  In Casual mode, players can challenge other players without changes to their tier or standings.  

Any matches with NPCs do not affect a player’s tier or standing on the leaderboards BUT you will earn rewards for winning or losing based on the challenged NPCs difficulty rating.  NPC matches also count as progress on quests.

There is one final mode called Friendly.  This is where the game is purely for fun!

Types of Cards

There are a couple of different types of cards:  Actions, Agents, Contract Actions, and Contract Agents.  Actions are sent to your cooldown at the end of your turn, while Agents remain on the field of play until they are knocked out.

Contact cards (either contract agent or contract action) are put into play as soon as they are acquired but NEVER go to your cooldown.  At the end of your turn, any played Contract Action card returns to the Tavern’s discard.  Contract Agents remain on the playing field until they are knocked out and then return to the Tavern’s discard.

Getting A Match Started

The beginning player gets the first pick of the tavern cards, so the second player (chosen at random) gets an additional coin for their first turn.

Gold coin cards are not suited so they can be played at any time.  Typically begin gameplay with all your non-suited coin-bearing cards.  The first few turns of ToT is more about upgrading and acquiring more powerful cards from the tavern.  For 2 gold, you can use the Treasury patron to exchange a 1 gold token card for a 2 gold writ card.  

Another note:  while gaining new more powerful cards is a good thing, having too many cards can be bad.  Your cooldown cards are shuffled only when you’ve played through your deck.  The more cards there are, the lower the opportunity for those good cards to appear as often.

You are not required to spend your gold.  You lose it when you complete your turn but you are not required to spend it.  You are not required to interact with patrons before ending your turn.  And you may interact with patrons during your turn – not just at the end.

The next play is the red-suited cards from Saint Pelin.  Both of these cards provide power and neither have combo effects so it doesn’t matter which order they are played.

Each card has a notation if the card has a combo effect.  Combos are cards played consecutively of the same suit.  You will want to make combos as the benefits can be quite rewarding in both gold and power.

Agent Cards And Combo Effects

This is an agent card.  It will cost 6 coins to purchase it.  Once purchased, the card will go into your cooldown pile.  Only when you play it later will you benefit from the effects this card offers.

Note the combo 3 effect.  This means the combo effect of this card will ONLY activate if it’s part of THREE purple-suited (Duke Of Crows) cards played in a single turn.  

Agents also have a health number at the bottom.  Once this agent cards is played, it stays active on the playing field to be used again at the next turn UNLESS the opponent clicks it (paying 3 power to remove it), uses a patron advantage, or has a counter-effect card to remove it.  

If you are attacking agent cards with power, the health number will decrease by the amount of power you use to attack it.  To attack it, you simply click it.  You do not have to attack your opponent’s agents.  But if they activate that agent, they receive the benefit listed on the card.   Likewise, if you have an agent on your table and want to activate it during the next hand, you will click it.  You are not required to use an agent every hand.  

Some agents have taunts.  This means that your ability to convert power to prestige is stifled until that agent is removed.  You can do this manually by clicking it OR it will happen automatically when you end your turn.

There are some cards and some patron interactions that allow you to remove cards from the tavern or your hand. 

While this can be a good thing to give you new cards to choose from in the tavern, this also affects what your opponent has an opportunity to get as well.

Turn By Turn Until Victory

All 4 Patrons’ favor is an immediate victory.  However, 40 Prestige also can win.  When you reach 40 prestige, your opponent has a final hand to match or exceed your score.  If he/she matches or exceeds, then you have a final hand to do the same.  This can continue for some time (capped at 80) until someone fails to match or exceed.  The first person to get to 80 automatically wins.

Tips For Success

The image above was from a hard-fought game with a veteran-level NPC.  He was using a new deck that offered the ability to remove Prestige from the opponent.  Because I was well stocked with gold from earlier Treasury patron interactions, I was able to purchase a lot of those cards easily punishing him for his deck choice.  I also took advantage of a patron that allowed me to create a bewilderment card (garbage card) and stuff it in his deck making what few ‘good’ cards he had nearly impossible to draw.  I think the highest Prestige he had all game was 10.  

  • use your first few hands to increase your gold with the Treasury patron – typically the higher value cards pack bigger punches
  • be sure to consider a card’s benefit before adding it to your deck – great cards will serve no purpose if you never get to use them
  • take advantage of combos whenever possible – you can look at your draw pile and your cooldown pile at any time by clicking it
  • don’t be afraid to use patrons even if they require payment by power
  • it’s okay to leave gold on the table at the end of your turn
  • always keep an eye on the patron’s favor – remember 4 patrons’ favor is an immediate victory
  • be flexible – since the tavern is made up of 4 decks of shuffled cards, you need to take advantage of opportunities when they present themselves

Tales Of Tribute Patrons

ToT Patrons Explained

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.

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.

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 coins.  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 coins to either player.  Consequently, the Treasury does not apply to the 4-patron-favored-win condition.

The Druid King, Tribute Patron

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