ESOTU Orsinium Introduces Crafting Node Scaling

The upcoming DLC to be released next month will be including a new harvesting implementation called “Crafting Node Scaling”.

Here is how it is intended to work

Crafters work in the tradehallCrafting Node Scaling

  • Raw materials in Wrothgar will look like (and drop) materials based on the peak of your aptitude in the craft they are associated with. This applies to Blacksmithing, Woodworking, Clothing, Enchanting, and Alchemy Water in Wrothgar.

    • For example, if you have Metalworking 9 and Woodworking 1, you will encounter Voidstone Ore and Maple Wood in the wild since your Metalworking level is high, but Woodworking is of a lower level.
    • If your tradeskill mastery is sufficient to work in Rubedite, Ruby Ash Wood, or Ancestor Silk, you will have a chance at encountering them in the world.
  • Hide that is normally provided by an animal will scale to the Tailoring rank of the player character looting the animal. This is to ensure everyone gets materials they can use, at any level.

  • Player characters in a group with differing ranks in Tailoring will all get different levels of hide.

ESO Crafting Writ Turn-in Locations List

Often crafters follow in their parents footsteps and take over the family business. As a result some rarely live their hometown and the familiarity of the crafting stations.  With the new crafting writs, crafters can take orders from the local notice board and deliver it a distant town.  Some end up taking up residence in the new town.

Summary

Merchant travels by horseback.
The saavy crafter knows the writs in distant lands can be a lucrative business.

Often the journal system doesn’t properly identify the turn in location if it is not at the crafters location. This brief tome describes the popular writ destinations of Tamriel. At the moment, it seems that consumables offer the best rewards consistently at all levels. Equipment writs seem to consume nearly a stack of resources and at lower levels, the rewards can mock the crafter with low value items like a quartz stone.
