Borderlands 3 ‘Show me the Eridium’ Event Explained
Week 3 of Borderlands’ 10-year anniversary celebration festival. After the Bonus loot and Rare Spawn Hunt, it’s now time for the Eridium event. During the ‘Show me the Eridium’ festivities you will be able to collect a lot of Eridium because during this week it’s added to the loot pool of standard enemies. There is also an increase in Eridium drops on Mayhem Mode. So you will be able to collect Eridium more easily but that’s not all. Eridium has increased in value, meaning everything you can purchase with Eridium has been reduced in price. So check out Crazy Earls’ store in the Cargo bay on Sanctuary 3 or check out the Veteran Rewards vending machine for some slick Anointed Gear. But if you are feeling lucky you can always give Moxxi’s slot machines a spin.
When can you farm Eridium?
The ‘Show Me the Eridium’ event will run from October 15 to October 22. A quick micro-patch will be deployed by or before 3:00 PM PDT. When you boot up the game, stay in the main menu for a bit in order for the game to download all the required info about the event. This will all happen in the background you just need to make sure you are online.
