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.

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.
