The Elder Scrolls: Blades is a game filled with two things: busywork, and waiting. When you're not waiting for a chest to open, or a weapon to temper, you'll be taking on Jobs and fixing up the town.

Jobs are incredibly important in The Elder Scrolls: Blades, both to your progress, and to the game itself because there'd be nothing else to do otherwise.

If you clear through these jobs in The Elder Scrolls: Blades, you'll have the materials you need to build up your town and smash through those main missions, so read on for the essential low down on getting a job in The Elder Scrolls: Blades.

Why we take jobs

The Elder Scrolls Blades

It's for money, right? Hahaha, all jokes aside, it's for money, yes, that's why we take jobs. In The Elder Scrolls: Blades, it's not so different to real life.

Here you'll get Daily, Weekly and normal Jobs to complete, each of them offering different rewards upon completion of different tasks at different difficulty levels.

Common rewards are Limestone and Lumber, but there are various other materials, and even rarer materials or even gear might pop up in place of the Daily or Weekly Job.

Jobs are essentially quests with the storyline ripped out, and they'll often see you killing a certain number of monsters, exploring a cave or hunting down a certain number of materials, rarely anything too complicated.

Jobs can be repetitive, but clearing through them will see you get precious experience, gold and of course those materials that you need to build up your town.

If you're finding the main quests and the Abyss too difficult, Jobs will give you the experience, chests and materials you need to progress without having to stress.

Ultimately, if you want to make progress in The Elder Scrolls: Blades then you should be regularly completing jobs to stock up on any materials you're low on.

Every last material

The rewards you get from Jobs at the end aren't the only rewards you can pull out of Job missions, there are more materials inside them.

Inside glowing pots, tree stumps or piles of bones, you can tap through and hopefully uncover brand new sets of materials hiding away.

In the Abyss, you can't find these extra materials, while in main missions, there will be even more materials laying around. Search thoroughly in Jobs to come out of the missions with more materials than the reward promised.

Eat up

If you want to go through Jobs over and over with little trouble, it's a simple case of keeping your health topped up - easy when enemies leave cheese wheels around the place.

Yep, Jobs are littered with food you can collect to refill your health, unlike the Abyss, which is devoid of food.

Using this you can stock up and prepare yourself before going over stronger enemies like Bears and Trolls. If you see a tough enemy, feel free to head backwards and look once more for more food.

Quit on day one

So, what if you're struggling to fight trolls, and you're getting high difficulty jobs which want you to kill six trolls each? Yes, this can happen.

It's simple. Don't do it. Refuse to do it. Get fired in style: say you'll do it, and then quit on day one.

In this case, that means accepting and heading out on a job, and then backing out straight back to the town afterwards. Why? It removes the Job and replaces it with another. Nice, and means you can keep getting the materials you want.
