[PTS] ESOTU [PC] Patch Notes 3.2.0 – Crafting Summary

The following is a summary of the crafting and housing related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.

NOTE: Currently, on the Public Test Server (PTS). Information here is from the patch notes published on their forums.


Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v3.2.0 and the Clockwork City where you can enter Sotha Sil’s legendary creation and explore his mysterious mechanical world. In addition to new quests to enjoy, you’ll also come across two new world bosses and two delves, plus a new 12-player Trial: Asylum Sanctorium. We’ve also added 12 new item sets, two new Motifs, over 200 new furnishings, and a host of fun, new collectibles.

For players that own The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind, we’ve added a new Battleground game mode – Crazy King – where your team must seize a capture point location that jumps randomly around the map. It’s, well, crazy!

The base game update introduces the highly-anticipated Transmutation system which allows you to change the traits on your gear, including weapons and armors. We’ve also added a trait tracker that will allow you to see whether or not you’ve researched the unique trait on an item.

As always, we’ve supplied everyone with a character template that will let you access the Clockwork City immediately. We’ve also been working hard to improve our templates and what they offer, which is detailed below.

We can’t wait to hear what you think of this latest update, which is approximately 3.7GB in size. Please be sure to utilize the in-game /feedback or /bug features, or post in the official discussion threads on the forums. Thanks, and have fun!

ESOTU Motifs

Crafters work in the tradehallAs 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.
