A research paper by Royal Kitsune outlines an efficient way to learn the alchemical properties of the all the known reagents and suggested reagents combinations to minimize the use of more popular reagents needed for triple attribute potions.

ESO Crafting Styles (Racial Motifs)

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.

Summary

Crafted equipment can have different appearancesThere 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.

ESO Crafted Sets

It was on an early adventure when I discovered my first crafters’ retreat area in Stonefalls. Truly gifted crafters are not content to squirrel themselves away in a dreary noisey city trade hall making baubles for passersby’s.  Away from the towns and their distractions, crafters will find their inspiration to make greatness.

Summary

Crafters work in the tradehall
Crafted sets are a good way to provide a boost to your combat prowess while waiting to find or buy best-in-class gear.

Equipment Crafters can unlock special crafted sets by learning the required number of traits (eg. Reinforced, Sharpened, etc.) of the various sets and locate the special crafting station in Tamriel or Coldharbour. The number of traits required for a set is ranges from 2 to 9.  Traits are learned by researching items and It can take over month to research 9 traits depending on the investment made in the researching passive of the crafting profession of the item. Some special gear sets require the completion of quest lines (Fighters’ Guild, Mages’ Guild, Faction lines) and other level requirements (Veteran Rank — Craglorn).

This tome summarizes the various sets and their attributes at level 10, VR01, and VR16.

There is a companion tome with maps to the locations of the crafted set stations.
