ESOTU Reddit: Why do Nirnroot Plants Chime?

Recently, there was a post on Reddit asking about why Nirnroot chimes.  A respondent pointed to a older post on the TESOLore subReddit for an answer.

A conclusion from an analysis of the lore on the subReddit by one member speculates that,

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

The Nirnroot is another cousin of the Hist, like the Sleeping Tree and the Umbrielian Hist. It shows far too many signs of being related to not be related. It’s not nearly as smart/sentient as the Hist or even the Um-Hist, but it has the wherewithal to enter a state of dormancy when times get rough.

Hmm…

ESOTU Alchemy Potions with Three Ingredients

Alchemy plant

Unlock the power of plants and mushrooms.

It is fun to learn by Alchemy by trial and error and hope whatever ever does not kills you makes you smarter. However, an Alchemical Potion Recipe book does reassure an aging mind of success and less of death.

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.
