ESOTU Writs, Writs, and More Writs

UpdateWith all of the exciting of recent in-game events behind us, last month, I took the opportunity to track the results of 360 consumable writs of various levels in preparation of updating my various writ articles.

Interestingly, I noticed that provisioning writs were not the only ones to have repeating writs in a set recurring order. For example, enchanting and provisioning writs repeat every three days, while alchemy repeats every four days.  These patterns have been incorporated into the Alchemist and Enchanting articles. Also, since I was editing the articles, I improved the in-page navigation in these articles to make it easier to find the information you are looking for and to make the pages more accessible on mobile devices and tablets.

Apothecary Parcels: Contraversial?

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

Apothecary Parcels, released as part of patch 2.6.9,  allow an alternative means to obtain alchemical reagents buy spending Tel Var Stones in Imperial City.

One player has posted some statistical data on 30 of the parcels they purchased and results are a surprising. The most common reagents were some of the most sought after reagents: Columbine, Lady Smock, Corn Flower, and Nirnroot. See data here (google docs).

angry-mobBased on the comments at the time this was published, this feature appears to have create a strong love / hate relationship with players. Imperial city is not popular with PVE’ers and they fear a strong hit to the economy. PVP’ers ,who are often large consumers of potions and poisons, appear to welcome the change.
