A gourmand will eat anything in front of them, while an educated gourmet prefers sophisticated recipes made from the freshest ingredients.
Provisioning food and drink are one of the main ways to improve your resource pools over a longer period of time. If the local guild trader doesn’t have the basic ingredients you are looking for, there are several grocers scattered around Tamriel ready to serve you.
After some considerable effort, my hirelings and I explored much of the Ebonheart Pact regions looking for fishing holes. This compendium is the first edition the covers most of the Ebonheart pact. The maps are a bit crude as it is my first attempt at producing maps.
The following maps were created using data collected using Voltan’s Fisherman, HarvestMap, and Destinations. Objectives and Wayshines were included on the maps to make it easier locate the holes on your in game map.
This first edition covers most of the Ebonheart Pact.
Yellow Hook – Foul
Dark Blue Hook – Ocean
Light Blue Hook – Rivers
Turquoise Hook – Lakes
Dark Blue Hook with Works – Fishing Hole with unconfirmed type.
Often crafters follow in their parents footsteps and take over the family business. As a result some rarely live their hometown and the familiarity of the crafting stations. With the new crafting writs, crafters can take orders from the local notice board and deliver it a distant town. Some end up taking up residence in the new town.
Often the journal system doesn’t properly identify the turn in location if it is not at the crafters location. This brief tome describes the popular writ destinations of Tamriel. At the moment, it seems that consumables offer the best rewards consistently at all levels. Equipment writs seem to consume nearly a stack of resources and at lower levels, the rewards can mock the crafter with low value items like a quartz stone.

During my journeys throughout Tamriel, I have often heard young apprentice provisioners grumble to their masters about needing more information relating to their daily writs. This brief compendium identifies the list of provisioning writs and the approximately level they are offered.
One of the many things an inhabitant of Tamriel can do is to become a certified Provisioner located in their starting area.
Certification in their crafting profession is not required to reach maximum level. However, writs offer a chance to earn new recipes (including purple recipes) and rare provisioning materials. After level 10, crafters can be certified without have to do the introductory quest.
The recipes given to a player doing the daily writs depend on a number of factors. These include Crafting Level, Skill Points assigned in the Provisioning Skill Line, and if certain regions of the game have been unlocked.
Most crafting masters and scholars agree, the consumable writs offered the best rewards. Fortunately, Masters only require the finished crafted products and do not care where they come from. An efficient adventure who wants to benefit from writ rewards can buy the crafted items or only need to learn the necessary recipes once.
Knowing which recipes are used for writs provides the crafter and adventurer alike a greater sense of their value and rarity.
There’s an old fishing expression, “it’s not the length of the worm that matters but how you wiggle it that matters”. The list of fish needed for each region is well known (see journal, achievements, trophies, fishing) but not the water type of each. Fortunately, that’s where this tome fills the gap.
There are 25 different fishing achievements up for grab in Tamriel. One for every region. One for every faction. One for getting them all. Aside from a sense of great accomplishment, the fisher is bestowed the title of Master Angler and unlocks several new colours for dyeing equipment. The uncommon fish (green) have a vendor price of 36g and the rare fish (blue) a price of 110g.
This document lists all of the rare fish in each region and which body of water they can be found. In some regions without a certain water type, the rare fish are divided by the remaining water types.
