Patch 2.7.5 created a new NPC merchant called War Research and reinstate the Enchantment Rune purchases for Alliance Points. Previously, the Akaviri Motifs and style items were sold by the siege masters vendors. Recently, Gladiator Proofs were added to the game which allow purchase special runeboxes from these vendors.
War Researcher vendor in the base camps of Cyrodiil. War Researchers sell Akaviri Motif chapters, and the Style Items for Akaviri and Alliance styles.
When you arrive in the homeland of the Khajiit, you’ll discover a land in strife, torn apart by roaming bandits, an Imperial invasion, and, of course, merciless Dragons striking from above. While the people of Elsweyr are no strangers to conflict, the combined threats seem almost overwhelming for the province’s scattered defenders. — ESO
Note: These quests do not require the Elsweyr DLC.
A common expression heard in taverns is “Pick your poison…”. With this guide, a savvy assassin will be able to pick the right poison for the job or to satiate the saltier clients with a need for increased suffering of the victim.
This tome reveals the mysteries of alchemy in the context of poison-making. Here’s a summary of the highlights:
Poisons can be made in batches of up to 16
When slotted, poisons suppress weapon enchantments.
Poisons have a 10 second cooldown
The rank or level of the poison determines the duration if there is an overtime effect, otherwise, the effect is increased.
Some potions offer benefits to the user in addition to negative effects to the victim.
Stun effects have shorter durations. Some poison provide benefits to the user.
A knowledge of all the reagent traits will enable the crafter to quickly craft potions and poisons using the base UI and increase the chance of obtaining sealed alchemy writs.
Tradeskill mastery (which determines your odds of receiving a master writ from a top tier writ reward box) is meant to imply a long-term dedication to the craft. This varies from tradeskill to tradeskill…And with Alchemy, we look at how many reagents from which you’ve completely learned all effects. — ZOS
As more motifs are being discovered in Tamriel, it becomes harder to remember where to find all this motif lore. This guide attempts to make it easier for the new or frugal crafter to locate motif chapters without being at the mercy of motif availability on guild traders.
Motif lore can be often found home and business containers (Nightstand, Desk, Wardrobe, Dresser, Cabinet, Cupboard, Trunk / Chests, Backpacks, and Urn / Vases). Furthermore, the location of these containers often determines the types of motifs that can be found. Unfortunately, many of these containers in towns will require some caution as they are considered property of the locals and if your theft is witnessed, you will negatively affect your status with the guards.
Originally I found this gem of knowledge on Reddit regarding the sets of special non-crafted sets in Cyrodiil. I have updated the content to include the changes after Patch 2.7.x and the introduction of Regional Zone sets.
The option to buy Regional Zones offered the ability to farm PvE gear in PvP areas.
When discussing the topic of Alchemy, the old phrase “what does not kill you, makes you stronger” comes to mind. After downing a dreadfully tasting potion and feeling it burn your innards on the way down, a powerful effect is required to make it worth it.
This tome reveals the mysteries of alchemy. Alchemy can save money by crafting your own and bypassing the middleman, potions can last longer by unlocking the “Medicinal Use” passive. Ability slots can be freed up by replacing ability effects with potion equivalents. Completionist can unlock more achievement points by completing the alchemy achievement points. Selling potions can be profitable. The solvent determines the level of the potion and reagents can be found all over Tamriel and Obilivion. The intial trait can be determined by using the raw reagent but making potions with other reagents will identify those with compatible traits. Finally, a list of popular beginner recipes is also provided.
