ESO Alchemy Trait Research Curriculum


Alchemy plant
Unlock the power of plants and mushrooms.

A knowledge of all the reagent traits will enable the crafter to quickly craft potions and poisons using the base UI and increase the chance of obtaining sealed alchemy writs.

Tradeskill mastery (which determines your odds of receiving a master writ from a top tier writ reward box) is meant to imply a long-term dedication to the craft. This varies from tradeskill to tradeskill…And with Alchemy, we look at how many reagents from which you’ve completely learned all effects. — ZOS
