ESOTU Reddit: List of Provisioning Writ Ingredients

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

ToxDrawace has posted a useful guide on Reddit that lists all of the provisioning ingredients for all writs (levels and factions). There are several uses of this list including,

  1. Determining what ingredients to hoard / buy for writs
  2. Determining which ingredients are useful in leveling provisioning by using recipes that do not include the ones on this list
  3. Identifying possible ingredients for sale on traders

ESOTU Writs, Writs, and More Writs

UpdateWith all of the exciting of recent in-game events behind us, last month, I took the opportunity to track the results of 360 consumable writs of various levels in preparation of updating my various writ articles.

Interestingly, I noticed that provisioning writs were not the only ones to have repeating writs in a set recurring order. For example, enchanting and provisioning writs repeat every three days, while alchemy repeats every four days.  These patterns have been incorporated into the Alchemist and Enchanting articles. Also, since I was editing the articles, I improved the in-page navigation in these articles to make it easier to find the information you are looking for and to make the pages more accessible on mobile devices and tablets.

ESOTU [PC] Patch Notes 2.6.6 – 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. There were two crafting changes. The most significant change is that solvents obtained will now always be the higher of your level or passive rank.

We’ve fixed the issue where you could be removed from your group in some circumstances, and pets will now receive the Battle Spirit buff during duels. We’ve also re-named the realm selection in-game so it’s clear which server is for NA or EU, and fixed the Vicious Death item set. In addition, we have several fixes for itemization – including scaling for water and loot received from Imperial City dungeons – plus several fixes involving dungeons, quests, and more. The size of this patch is approximately 126MB.

ESOTU Pattern Emerges in Top Tier Provisioning Writs

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

One of our fellow crafters has posted an interesting artical on official forums under the title “One Tamriel Max Provisioning Writs Decoded”

What is happening is that every day the RNG randomly assigns either the CP 50 writ or the CP 150 writ, and once that is decided, you receive whichever writ for that level is due up in the rotation for that day. Also, it seems that the the rotations are linked to each other on a daily basis. I have not been able to discern a pattern outside of this and it does appear whether you get a CP 50 or CP 150 writ is completely random.

ESOTU Provisioning Writ Anomalies – Post OneTamriel

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

There have been several reports over the past few days regarding changes in writ rewards, especially provisioning. This is leading to speculation that recipes might be like pledges with a recipe rotation, there are glitches with the removal of Orsinium as the highest tier turn-in location and more.

I have noticed a few of the issues reported and may have observed different characters getting different xp and gold at the same proficiency tier. I’ll record my findings when I’m eligible for more writs.
