ESOTU Master Crafting Writs


Crafters work in the tradehallOnly the finest master crafters in Tamriel receive special master writ invitations from Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator. To become a recipient of these prestigious documents, crafters have to be certified, be recognized as a master in their profession (Level 50),  mastered all of the proficiencies in those professions (Solvent Proficiency 8, Metalworking 10, Tailoring 10, Potency Improvement 10, Recipe Improvement 6, and/or Woodworking 10). Once you successfully complete a master crafting writ, you will be rewarded with writ vouchers that can be used to purchase special recipes such as the target skeleton, legendary furniture for each profession, components of the Aetherial Ambroisa recipe, and more.

Special Invitations

When you turn-in a top tier writ to , one of the Belkarth supply master, there is a chance that you will receive a special invitation to craft a very specific item or set of items. Mastercrafter Mediator Rolis Hlaalu who will only appear in the Faction Capital City (Grahtwood, Mournhold, Wayrest) to those that have completed their task on their special invitation.

  • These invitations may require any materials or knowledge associated with the tradeskill, even if you don’t yet possess it.
  • These invitations are tradeable, consumable, and indicate the number of Writ Vouchers awarded upon successful completion of the contract.
  • The frequency of Master Writ invites from standard Writ boxes is based on the overall associated tradeskill mastery possessed by the character.
Tip: While you can only do one writ of each profession at a time, you can pre-make the items for the writs and accept the writs at the turn-in guy and no more running back and forth.


Improving Your Chances of a Special Invitation

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

Tip: Only completed motifs (purple non-exclusive motifs) give a bonus. Individual Chapters do not. (1)

Developer Comments

Does each Chapter of a motif increase your chances or only when a Motif is completed?
Does completing Achievements in general on the character increase your chances or only the crafting achievements?

Only Purple- and Gold-quality provisioning recipes and completed Motifs increase your chances of getting a Master Writ. Individual Motif Chapters do not increase your chances. Achievements are factored into Master Writ chances by way of learning associated Alchemy reagent traits and Enchantment glyph translations.

Does that include the new motifs that were just introduced with this patch?

Yes, Motifs that aren’t Crown Store-exclusive (including the ones added with Update 13) are factored into Motif knowledge for the chance to receive Master Writs, with the playable race cultural Motifs being the exception. You may be asked to craft items in the playable race cultural Motifs to complete a Master Writ, but they do not contribute to your chances of getting a Master Writ.

How much knowledge of Motifs helps to increase the rate of getting Master Writs?

Completing all of your research and learning all the applicable Motifs is weighted very similarly.

With the introduction of furnishing crafting schematics, does knowledge of these influence Master Writ chances as they are “craftable goods”?

This doesn’t factor in at the moment, but we’ll be evaluating it for future growth of the system.



Writ Vouchers are a new form of currency awarded exclusively through the completion of Master Writs.  More difficult, rare, and expensive crafted items provide more Writ Vouchers on average than their more commonplace counterparts. Examples

  1. 2 vouchers ( Capon Tomato-Beet Casserole)
  2. 127 vouchers (Ruby Ash Shield, Legendary, Nirnhoned, Eternal Hunt, Dark Brotherhood)
Note: Writ vouchers can be banked.
