ESO Crafting Writ Turn-in Locations List

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.

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.
