Borderlands 3 fans will have tons to do over the coming week as Gearbox has officially introduced the ‘Show me the Eridium’ event which is set to kick off tomorrow in Borderlands 3. Up until now we weren’t 100% sure what the event would focus on (aside from Eridium obviously). Now, though, we know that Borderlands 3 players will find quite a few changes to the iconic rare ore.
First and foremost, standard enemies will start to drop Eridium upon their deaths. This should make it even easier to farm for the sweet, purple ore that so many covet in the Borderlands universe. On top of this, players will also find some discounted prices on all the Eridium gambling machines in Moxxi’s bar, which should allow you to play more often than you already do.
Another big change that will take effect this week will come in the form of some insane discounts at Crazy Earl’s in Sanctuary. We’re not exactly sure what kind of discounts we’re looking at, but any kind of lower price for Eridium items is one worth celebrating. Finally, Mayhem mode will also see some increased drop rates, so those playing in the more difficult versions of the game should see more Eridium for their efforts.
Show me the Eridium will kick off tomorrow, October 15 before 3:00 PM PDT. A micropatch will be released to the game, which when downloaded will activate the changes. Players will be notified of this update if they are in the game at the time so that they can head back to the main menu for a few moments to download it. The event will then continue until next week, on October 22, when the next week’s event kicks off.
If you’ve been struggling to gather up enough Eridium for the items you want, or if you just want to pad your pockets a bit more, Show me the Eridium is the perfect time to do so. Make sure to dive into Borderlands 3 this week as the event takes part and gather up as much of the sweet, purple ore as you can.
