A gourmand will eat anything in front of them, while an educated gourmet prefers sophisticated recipes made from the freshest ingredients.
Provisioning food and drink are one of the main ways to improve your resource pools over a longer period of time. If the local guild trader doesn’t have the basic ingredients you are looking for, there are several grocers scattered around Tamriel ready to serve you.
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.
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.

After some considerable effort, my hirelings and I explored much of the Ebonheart Pact regions looking for fishing holes. This compendium is the first edition the covers most of the Ebonheart pact. The maps are a bit crude as it is my first attempt at producing maps.
The following maps were created using data collected using Voltan’s Fisherman, HarvestMap, and Destinations. Objectives and Wayshines were included on the maps to make it easier locate the holes on your in game map.
This first edition covers most of the Ebonheart Pact.
Yellow Hook – Foul
Dark Blue Hook – Ocean
Light Blue Hook – Rivers
Turquoise Hook – Lakes
Dark Blue Hook with Works – Fishing Hole with unconfirmed type.
Note: I am currently collecting data to assess the changes made with patch 4.1.5.

There’s an old fishing expression, “it’s not the length of the worm that matters but how you wiggle it that matters”. The list of fish needed for each region is well known (see journal, achievements, trophies, fishing) but not the water type of each. Fortunately, that’s where this tome fills the gap.
There are over 30 different fishing achievements up for grab in Tamriel. One for every region. One for every faction. One for getting them all. Aside from a sense of great accomplishment, the fisher is bestowed the title of Master Angler and unlocks several new colours for dyeing equipment. The uncommon fish (green) have a vendor price of 36g and the rare fish (blue) a price of 110g.
This document lists all of the rare fish in each region and which body of water they can be found. In some regions without a certain water type, the rare fish are divided by the remaining water types.
