ESOTU [PC] Patch Notes 2.6.4 – Crafting Summary

New content coming to ESOTU!The following is a summary of the crafting related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.  A few crafting changes. The most significant change is that the Chef and Brewer vendors will sell CP150 green-quality recipes used in Provisioning crafting writs so it is based on the passive rank in Recipe Improvement.

OVERVIEW
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.6.4, featuring One Tamriel! This update opens up the world of Tamriel for you to explore any time, and play with your friends no matter what level you are. Due to the significant changes One Tamriel brings to ESO, we’ve adjusted much of the current content and systems.

In this update, you’ll find that we’ve made Craglorn more solo-friendly, added Normal and Veteran modes for all 4-player dungeons, re-designed the Undaunted Pledge system, and made some fairly sizeable itemization changes and updates – you’ll definitely want to check out all the details below.

In addition to One Tamriel, we’ve also added dueling, Weapon Ultimates, and added new daily quests. We’ve also added 16 new Monster Masks, and raised the Champion Point cap by 30 points. As with previous updates, we’ve also implemented many fixes and improvements to previous DLC game packs and the base game patch. The size for this update is approximately 2.3GB. Enjoy, and see you in Tamriel!

ESOTU Writs Improved, but Could be Better!

Say What?
Overheard in Tamriel

With the release of Shadows of the Hist, the highest tier writs and Survey Map were tweaked to use only the highest level materials.  Unfortunately, the maps were bugged and still rewarded lower tier materials. Fortunately, that issue was patched.

On the positive side, the clothing survey maps saw an upgrade with the inclusion of leather nodes in the form of trapping nodes.

Many crafters  agree that there is still room for improvement.  Some writs are asking for four or more items to be crafted.  These writs are not worth doing as the rewards result in a net loss of materials and little to offset the cost.

ESOTU More Equipment Writ Analysis

Victim tortured on the rack.
To equipment writ or not to equipment writ?

Truewavesound posted on the forums their crafting data from last week.

I have been recording the results of my max level crafting writs for the last week in an effort to decide whether I should continue to do them.

Although the sample size was small and assuming the gold items were sold on the market, Truewavesound’s conclusion was that doing the writs were profitable (average of the three professions was about 18,500g profit.)
