If you enjoy crafting in game and want to learn more about blacksmithing, the History Channel has an interesting competition series that tests modern day blacksmiths. I’ve seen a few episodes and I have them to be pretty interesting despite following the common reality tv competition formula.
So the rumors are true. Two new styles have been rediscovered: One of them is a way to make armor out of glass! Over a few pints at the tavern and an undisclosed amount of coins in small denominations in an unmarked pouch, a master crafter shared his knowledge of the new glass motif.
Today, I was sipping on my Fredas Night Infusion after a fine dinner when I heard that my faction’s army had secured most of Cyrodil. I gathered my combat kit and headed off towards the Imperial City. While I was there, I managed to visit the three Imperial City Armories where I confirmed the rumors that three new sets could be crafted.
Article has been replaced with another with a complete list of motifs, not just the racial ones: ESO Motifs
There are many exotic crafting styles that represent the culture and prowess of the various races of Tamriel. Each style provides a distinct appearance to an item and within a style there are several appearance substyles for various levels.
There are currently 20 crafting styles. A crafter will automatically know their racial style and can learn others by using motif books / scrolls found around Tamriel. The styles are: Altmer, Argonian, Bosmer, Breton, Dunmer, Khajit, Nord, Orc, Redguard, Dwemer, , Ancient Elf, Barbaric, Daedric, Imperial, and Primative. The motif books are found in standard containers (backpacks, cabinets, chests, dressers, nightstands, trunks, urns, and vases). The standard motifs (blue – character races) are found in non-veteran rank areas and the rarer ones in veteran regions. Some of the rarer ones can be found in areas where the main questline, guild questlines (mages’ guild, fighters’ guild), and added content (Imperial City, Orsium, etc.) take place.
This tome is a follow up to my popular tome ESO Crafting Sets. This compendium provides novice crafters the locations of the crafting retreats in the Aldmeri Dominion, Daggerfall Covenant, Ebonheart Pact, Coldharbour, and Craglorn.
