Greetings All. I have started to update my content with information from the PTS.
So far, I have found a new potion and started to identify the traits of the Alchemy Reagents. I’ve found one new crafting station in the Gold Coast and have added it to the crafted sets article. I’ve added the new fishing achievement for the Gold Coast and will identify the water type when the DLC goes live.
The following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.
Craft Bags, available to ESO+ members, are an additional inventory section which does not count against your inventory limit, is shared across all characters on the account, and can hold an effectively unlimited number of all basic crafting supplies
Two new Motifs (Thieves’ Guild and Abah’s Watch)
Three new crafted sets (Pelinal’s Aptitude, Varen’s Wall, Kvatch Gladiator)
Alchemy includes a new subcraft, Poison-making
UI updates to reflect addition of poison-making
Enchanting glyphs will no longer have upper level requirement
All harvestable runestones will now provide at least one Essence and Aspect runestone per harvest
Potency runestones now available for purchase from any enchanting vendor
Item Traits have undergone revision to improve the viability and balance of each Trait
Some exciting information released yesterday on the ESO website regarding the next ESOTU DLC: The Dark Brotherhood. Highlights include: Poison-making, Crafting Bags, Additional Character Slots, Motif previews, and improvements to item traits.
When discussing the topic of Alchemy, the old phrase “what does not kill you, makes you stronger” comes to mind. After downing a dreadfully tasting potion and feeling it burn your innards on the way down, a powerful effect is required to make it worth it.
This tome reveals the mysteries of alchemy. Alchemy can save money by crafting your own and bypassing the middleman, potions can last longer by unlocking the “Medicinal Use” passive. Ability slots can be freed up by replacing ability effects with potion equivalents. Completionist can unlock more achievement points by completing the alchemy achievement points. Selling potions can be profitable. The solvent determines the level of the potion and reagents can be found all over Tamriel and Obilivion. The intial trait can be determined by using the raw reagent but making potions with other reagents will identify those with compatible traits. Finally, a list of popular beginner recipes is also provided.
