ESOTU Housing: Realistic Goals for Day 1

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

If you are excited about housing as much as I am, I suggest checking out the article Homestead: Furnishing Day 1” on Tamrielfoundry.com.  It talks about the logisitics of obtaining furniture crafting plans (1100) and harvesting the furniture materials. I have to agree, we are in for a grind.

The article quotes a source at Zenimax that recipe sourcing is influenced by the region they are found.  There was a similar approach when provisioning recipes were introduced. I recall watching Icy’s YouTube video on housing and how she was disappointed that she didn’t find any Redguard themed recipes in the Redguard zone she was farming the recipes in.

The element of housing that was missed in the article was the ability to get recipes and items from Fishing.  Overall, it’s a great read.

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

Wow, congratulations to MyNameIsElias who posted on the Official Forums that he has obtained the title Master Angler on 12 characters. You read that right: 12 Characters.

He may be the closest thing in Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited to the World of Warcraft player that leveled his panda character to max level by only harvesting nodes in the beginner area.

Check out his post on the official forums, he has included some interests statistics like how many fishes caught, perfect roe found, etc.

ESOTU [PTS] Crafter Alert: Changes to Staves

New content coming to ESOTU!To be an effective crafting consultant, one must be aware of the changes to the weapons you create from the basic of materials.

Let it be known

Ancient Knowledge: This passive ability no longer decreases the cast time of your Destruction Staff Heavy Attacks by 5/10%. Instead, it grants you a bonus as long as you have one Destruction Staff ability slotted. This bonus depends on your staff type:

  • Flame Staves: Increases your single-target damage dealt by 4/8%.
  • Frost Staves: Increases the amount of damage you Block by 10/20%, and reduces the cost of Block by 15/30%.
  • Lightning Staves: Increases your Area of Effect damage dealt by 4/8%.

Tri Focus:

  • This passive ability now taunts the enemy after you use a fully-charged Frost Heavy Attack.
  • This passive ability now causes your block to drain Magicka (instead of Stamina) and stops your Magicka Recovery (instead of Stamina Recovery) while blocking when you have a Frost Destruction Staff equipped.
