Nice! I tracked down two more recipes on my need list. I now have learned 486 of 487 provisioning recipes. What great timing! I hear that there will be over 40 more recipes to chase down when the next patch goes live next week.
There were a few interesting tidbits of crafting related items brought up during the Q&A session this week on ESO Live on Twitch.
- Special crafting bags to hold crafting mats for ESO Plus Members in development
- New Imperial City crafted sets will require a lot more materials for VR16 items by design to reflect demand to have best gear in game
- Shield dyes are in the works, weapon dyes are not
This nugget, as a popular Tamriel sage likes to say, was found in a recent posting I came across. It is worth sharing with novice Alchemists.
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.
I have verified the list on a new alchemist. This document expands on the original post by identifies the varies traits learned, corrects some spelling mistakes, and added one missing reagent combination for Columbine.
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.
Regularly, new crafters ask where can they find the starter writ recipes. I have updated my provisioning writ tome with this information. Good Luck and Happy Crafting!
