During this time, you can expect Eridium drops from standard enemies, increased Eridium drops in Mayhem Mode, discounted Eridium costs to use Moxxi’s Vault Line slot machine, and a discount on all the items sold by Crazy Earl in the Cargo Bay of Sanctuary III.

This is a great time to accumulate the rare element, especially if you’re preparing for the incoming raid boss. This is on top of being able to utilize Crazy Earl’s Reroll and Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine when they’re added on April 8.

Both of these will be available to all players at no additional cost.

In exchange for some Eridium, Crazy Earl’s Reroll will replace the existing Anointment on a specified item. By rerolling the Anointments on gear, you can create optimized loadouts.

As for Maurice’s Black Market Vending Machine, the machine offers top-tier Legendary loot and will be hidden in a new location within the base game each week.

With the release of the Director’s Cut add-on launching on April 8, you will also need Eriduim to take on a raid boss encounter against a Varkid known as Hemovorous the Invincible. In order to open the door to its lair on Pandora, your group will need to deposit 500 Eridium.

If you don’t own Director’s Cut yet, you can purchase it individually or as part of Borderlands 3 Ultimate Edition or Season Pass 2. The add-on will bring all-new ways to play, including a raid boss, new murder mystery story missions, and behind-the-scenes content.

In addition, Director’s Cut includes three Vault Cards, which are part of a new progression system featuring daily and weekly challenges. By completing challenges, you gain progress toward unlocking themed rewards, including Legendary gear, new cosmetic items, and Diamond Keys.
