ESOTU OneTamriel and Sourcing Provisioning Recipes

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

There was a question on the forum about how provisioning recipes will drop when OneTamriel goes live. The official answer is

  • Recipes in Cyrodiil, the Imperial City, and Dungeons now drop based on your rank in the Recipe Improvement passive.
  • In other zones, recipes drop based on your passive rank 75% of the time, and the rest of the time drop the same way they dropped prior to One Tamriel, by zone.

However, since recipes also drop in containers where items are considered “stolen”, would the new mechanic of adjusting the quality of loot  based on legerdemain (mentioned at PAXWest 1:41), increase your chance of getting a blue or purple recipe? Hmm…

ESOTU Undaunted Pledges 2.6.0 Tracking

UpdateOver the past five PTS pledge cycles, I have been tracking the pledges offered by the three pledge givers. Here are my initial findings and speculation

  1. General
    1. The pledges don’t appear to random per character. I picked a few characters on different factions and they received the same pledges.
  2. Urgarlag
    1. Appears to rotate pledges between DLC’s and dungeons. eg. IC dungeon 1, SotH dungeon 1, IC dungeon 2, SotH dungeon 2, etc.
  3. Maj
    1. Appears to rotate pledges between version I and II but different dungeons. eg. Dungeon A I, dungeon B II, dungeon C I, etc.
  4. Glirion
    1. Appears to be offering dungeons with version I’s first.

If the patterns do repeat, I’ll update my Undaunted Article and ESOTU calendar.

ESOTU OneTamriel First Impressions: New Daily Quests

Trotting into the unknown.This evening I hopped onto the PTS and tried out the new daily quests for the Fighters’ Guild, Mages’ Guild, and the Undaunted.

As a high level player with all of the zone POI’s (points of interest) visible on the map, they didn’t take long to do and were soloable. Aside from the rare chance of a new crafting motif or  style item, I felt the rewards were underwhelming. There were some white consumables and ornate gear that was capped at level 50 or CP150. Overall, I would do for the crafting motifs and the achievements and stop doing them.

OVERVIEW
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.6.0, featuring One Tamriel! This update opens up the world of Tamriel for you to explore any time, and play with your friends no matter what level you are. Due to the significant changes One Tamriel brings to ESO, we’ve adjusted much of the current content and systems.

In this update, you’ll find that we’ve made Craglorn more solo-friendly, added Normal and Veteran modes for all 4-player dungeons, re-designed the Undaunted Pledge system, added new world bosses, and made some fairly sizeable itemization changes and updates – you’ll definitely want to check out all the details below.

In addition to One Tamriel, we’ve also added dueling, Weapon Ultimates, and added new daily quests. We’ve also added 16 new Monster Masks, and raised the Champion Point cap by 30 points. As with previous updates, we’ve also implemented many fixes and improvements to previous DLC game packs and the base game patch. Please note that the recently-announced Crown Crates will be available to test in a future PTS incremental patch.

We can’t wait to hear what you think of this update, all of which will be free for all players and is approximately 3.81GB in size.
