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.
The following is a summary of the crafting and housing related changes included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac. No crafting changes.
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v3.3.5 and the Dragon Bones DLC Game Pack! As with previous updates, the base game patch will be available to everyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online and the DLC Game Pack will automatically download with it, allowing you instant access to the new content when you purchase it or activate an ESO Plus membership. Anyone who owns ESO and has an active ESO Plus membership will also automatically have access to the Dragon Bones DLC Game Pack. If your ESO Plus membership ends or lapses, you will no longer have access to the DLC Game Pack content and areas, but you will still have any items you earned while you had access.
In this update, you’ll be able to explore and conquer two all-new 4 player dungeons – Fang Lair and Scalecaller Peak. These dungeons offer new item sets, Monster Masks, achievements and unique rewards! We’ve also added two new Battlegrounds maps – Mor Khazgur and Deeping Drome – which are available to anyone who owns The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind.
In the base game patch, we’ve added several new features including the highly-anticipated Outfit System, which gives you the freedom to customize the visual appearance of your gear, and Home Storage Furnishings! We’ve also added two new systems to aid players as they adventure throughout Tamriel: a Level Up Advisor and Skills Advisor. And as always, we’ve made several adjustments and improvements to combat abilities, including an overhaul to our Synergy system, and several bug fixes.
We hope you enjoy this new update, which is approximately 2.38GB in size.
Two New Dungeons
8 new Item Sets
The new Outfit System is now available, and allows you the freedom to customize the visual appearance of your character including both the style and dyes. With Outfits, you get to determine the appearance of every aspect of your character, piece by piece, regardless of what you are (or aren’t) wearing underneath.
Customize by slot, motif, and material level (eg. jute to ancestor silk variants)
Housing Storage Chests
These account-wide items allow you to store 30 or 60 items per collectible, depending on the size. You can acquire four 30-slot coffers and four 60-slot chests, for a combined total of up to 360 storage slots.
Master Writ Vendors
Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator who sells furnishings and recipes for Writ Vouchers, has changed some of his offerings. He retired several of his furniture plans and now offers 6 new furniture plans.
a new assistant: Faustina Curio, the Achievement Mediator. This new merchant sells plans and furnishings for Writ Vouchers to characters that have attained certain achievements. Among these items are plans that Rolis previously stopped selling, as well as new furnishing documents that contain Morrowind furnishing plans.
The Glass Motif can now be purchased from Rolis Hlaalu
Several motifs now more rarer.
Aldmeri Dominion, Ancient Elf, Assassins League, Barbaric, , Celestial, Daedric, Daggerfall Covenant, Dro-m’Athra, Ebonheart Pact, Mercenary, Minotaur, Outlaw, Primal, Ra Gada
Level Up Advisor
The Champion Point cap has been raised by 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) for a total of 720 Champion Points.
No longer supporting the 32-bit client
The chance of obtaining a Xivkyn Motif chapter from a Daedric Cache in Imperial City is now dependent on your Tel Var Stone multiplier: the more Stones you carry, the more likely you are to obtain a Xivkyn Motif chapter.
Fixed an issue resulting in some long-duration poisons having no difference between their two-reagent and three-reagent durations. Three-reagent durations are now consistently longer.
Adjusted the duration for all Immovable potions. The base duration has been reduced from a cap of 12.5 seconds to 8 seconds, leading to a Medicinal Use maximum of 10.4 seconds
Rewards for the Worthy mails now only grant a guaranteed Transmutation Geode once per day per account.
The Creation tab at Crafting Stations will now remember the level you have selected, rather than the number of materials. This is to prevent accidentally crafting the wrong level gear when switching between slots that require different material amounts, such as Helmet and Pants.
In true Thieves Guild fashion, the Thieves Guild of Hews Bane have been quietly planning a very special event to celebrate the Thieves Guild launch anniversary. And it begins today! You can enjoy the following when playing in Hew’s Bane from now until March 20:
Double yield from resource nodes in Hew’s Bane
Double rewards for killing World Bosses and bosses in delves in Hew’s Bane
Double dro-m’Athra style items from killing bosses in the Maw of Lorkhaj Trial
Increased rewards from Heists
Non-perfect Heists give the reward for perfect Heists; perfect Heists award double the crates
The Crown Crafting Motif: Dro-m’Athra Style is now available in the Crown Store. Get this otherworldly motif for a limited time between today (January 26) and 10am EST on January 30.
The Dro-m’Athra Style costs 6,000 crowns and will be available on all platforms for a limited time from January 26 to January 30.
My recommendation is to save your crowns for housing update that will be released in a few weeks. The Dro-m’Athra style chapters can be farmed reliably from the Maw of Lorkhaj, if you have ESO+ or the Thieves Guild DLC. According to TamrielTradeCenter.com, there is a decent supply of these motifs available on the [PC] guild traders with prices in the 5,000 – 20,000g range.
The following is a summary of the crafting related changes (plus a few “quality of life changes) included in this #ESOTU patch for the PC and Mac.
There are four new Motifs coming to Tamriel: Dark Brotherhood, dro-m’Athra, Minotaur, and Order of the Hour.
Added achievements for learning all chapters of the Order of the Hour, Minotaur, and Dark Brotherhood style
Added an achievement for learning all chapters of the dro-m’Athra style.
Clothier Survey sites of all tiers now include a small number of a new Furrier Trap harvest node.
Orc Skill Heavy Armor Expertise: This passive ability has been renamed to “Craftsman.” Also, in addition to the current benefit it now increases your inspiration gains by 10%.
The top tier of durable Crafting Writs (Blacksmithing, Woodworking, and Clothier) now require only the top tier of material.
Created a new, unique icon for Tempering Alloy. No longer will you mistake it for Citrine, or vice-versa.
Welcome to The Elder Scrolls Online v2.5.5 and the Shadows of the Hist DLC Game Pack!
Anyone who owns ESO and has an active ESO Plus membership will also automatically have access to the Shadows of the Hist DLC Game Pack and the ability to freely dye your costumes. In this update, you’ll be able to conquer two all-new 4 player dungeons – the Cradle of Shadows and Ruins of Mazzatun. These dungeons offer new item sets, skins, Monster Masks and achievements!
The base game patch features a number of exciting new features including character re-customization through the new Style Parlor, the town capture system in Cyrodiil, improvements to existing Trials, and more. In addition, we’ve made several adjustments to the racial passives, and also increased the Champion Point cap to 531. You’ll also find we’ve made several fixes and improvements to existing content as well.
Equipment looted while in a Dungeon or Trial group can now be traded to active group members up to two hours after being looted
The Champion Point cap has been raised by a total of 30 points (10 in each red/blue/green constellation) to 531 Champion Points
You will always find a Monster Set shoulder piece in the Undaunted Gold chest, often in the Silver chest, and occasionally in the Bronze chest.
We hope you have fun with our latest update, which is approximately 4.6GB in size.
