ESOTU Making a New Character?

Do MoreInspired by the Witches’ Festival event and the double experience that came with it, this guide helps new players and veteran get their newest character ready for Tamriel. I was grinding experience points with a guildie on his newborn character killing zombies when after 10 levels he realized he forgot to join the fighters’ guild and lost all of the Fighters’ Guild faction rank increases that would have come with killing all of the zombies. I hope you find it useful.

ESOTU Hireling Statistics?

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

This week in the official (crafting) forums, there was a post by Reorx Holybeard who had gathered hireling statistics over 155 days.

While the math isn’t perfect, I was interested on the method used. I’ve been thinking about doing some hireling analysis myself and having this information reduces the need to completely “re-invent the wheel”.

Reorx used UESP log add-on and then parsed the data using the scripting language python.  Interesting.

ESOTU Survey Map Issues?

Bug bites another player.There are a few issues being reported at the moment relating  Crafting Survey Nodes .

  1. [PC] Missing Survey Nodes
    An addon (Lost Treasure Maps) issue. Updating the Addon will fix this issue.
  2. [PC] Missing Leather Nodes (Furrier Traps)
    It has been reported that other players can see your nodes and loot them.
  3. [XBOne / PS4] Missing Nodes
    This issue appears to be a reappearance of the banker assistant exploit hotifix. I have no other information on this issue.

ESOTU YouTube Review – Play2WinTV: Trade Addons

Play2WinTV has series of videos dedicated to Ixtyr’s favorite add-ons group by category.  I recommend checking out the Trade and Economy video. It clocks in at just over 30 minute and I learned a few tips even though I had been using these add-ons for some time.  If you are new to selling items on the guild traders, Play2WinTV does a decent job covering the stuff you need to know now.


Addons covered: Awesome Guild Store and Master Merchant.

ESO Fishing Guide

After reading the Guide to Fishing Tamriel, I found the content lacking sufficient details to satisfy my scholarly curiosity.  I wanted more details and it set out to answer my many unanswered questions.


Boat with fish under it.

The fish do you no good in the water.

This guide covers fishing in a very comprehensive and organized manner.  Fishing results in special achievements (including one of the rarest titles in the game), crafting raw material (including the legendary ingredient for crafting experience potions), and rare sellable fish. The legendary ingredient, Perfect Roe, is currently fetching a high price and harvesting it is a lucrative activity. There are four types of water fish can be found and particular bait must be used at the right location to obtain the best results.   Fishing parties looking for rare fish should limit their group to 4 or 5 people. The table below lists the water types and their respective baits.  Several tools have been created to make fishing a lot easier.

Water Type Bait
Foul Crawlers. Fish Roe
Lake Guts, Minnow
Ocean Worms, Chum
River Insect Parts, Shad
