Video Review: VanguardGamer – New FOOD / NEED to Know FOOD ESO Master list

A popular ESOTU Console YouTuber, VanguardGamer has released  a video listing provisioning recipes.  It’s one of the few crafting videos I have seen on the console.

The explanation of the different recipes was not to bad but be warned ESO has over 540 recipes and there is a lot of scrolling in the video and not much commentary after the summary at the beginning of the video. Duration: ~15 minutes

A popular ESOTU Theorycrafter and YouTuber, Alcast has released  eight new videos for new players.

The first crafting-related one in the series covers off the crafting profession proficiency passives, brief introduction to the crafting stations, and the activities you can perform at them. Duration: 11 minutes

The second crafting related video is very brief and gives a brief introduction to harvesting nodes in a starter zone.

In this video, Alcast introduces the special crafting set location map icon and requirement of researched traits needed to craft the set. Duration: approximately 4 mins.

ESOTU How Nodes Will Scale in One Tamriel

In a recent @ElderScrollsOTR broadcast featuring Rich Lambert, he talks about OneTamriel and the question about harvesting nodes was raised (28:30). The nodes will scale like the battle-levelled zones.

Resource nodes that spawn in battle leveled zones (such as Orsinium or the Gold Coast) now come in two varieties and provide crafting resources based on either your combat level or your rank in the associated material-use passive.

  • When the resource node spawns, it has an even chance to be based on either level or passive rank.
