ESOTU Review: ESO Guide Ways to get Crafting Mats

Sherman’s Gaming has posted a good video on harvesting various crafting materials for all professions in ESO. The focus of the video is on the starter regions which make ideal harvest zones: easy to get to by new players, smaller zone area, and abundant  variety of crafting items.

One thing I appreciated was that he provided a review of the items harvested to give an example of the types of harvest yields the view can expect to get. He mentions a few other areas  but unfortunately often references zones and not specific named locations.  Duration: < 20 minutes.

Overheard in Tamriel

ToxDrawace has posted a useful guide on Reddit that lists all of the provisioning ingredients for all writs (levels and factions). There are several uses of this list including,

  2. Determining which ingredients are useful in leveling provisioning by using recipes that do not include the ones on this list
  3. Identifying possible ingredients for sale on traders
