Note: You can accept one writ at a time for the same profession.


Improving Your Chances of a Special Invitation

Based on the information provided by ZOS, overall associated tradeskill mastery was clarified to mean

  • Alchemy
  • Enchanting
    • Translation of all the runes
  • Provisioning
    • Purple and Gold Recipes known
  • Equipment Professions
    • Purple Motifs known
    • Crown store exclusives and racial motifs do not affect overall associated tradeskill mastery
Tip: Only completed motifs (purple non-exclusive motifs) give a bonus. Individual Chapters do not. (1)
