Help

The Elder Scrolls Online features a crafting system similar to most modern MMOs. There are 6 professions: Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Clothier, Enchanting, Woodworking and Provisioning. You do can choose any crafts you want; however, to raise crafting tiers and make crafting more profitable, you need to invest skill points into your chosen craft(s). Although there is no limitation on how to distribute your points, to level every skill for every craft is close to 140 skill points, so realistically you can only level up 1-2 crafts as these are the same skill points used to level your class, race, armor, weapon, and other skills for your character. Therefore, choosing skills wisely and not "gimping" your character is something to consider. The only way to level your crafting skill is via actually crafting items for that craft or deconstruct items made by that craft.

Of note: You can craft at any station directly using your banked materials, without having them taking space in your inventory, this will ensure you have space for your crafted results!

Crafting Professions


chemistry.pngAlchemy

If creating powerful potions sounds like your cup of tea, then this is the craft for you. Alchemy isn't all that different than previous Elder Scrolls games. It essentially follows the same protocol: find ingredients, combine them at the appropriate station, discover recipe, now you know a new recipe and can create it over and over. To create more powerful versions of potions you will need to find higher level Solvents. These will be found in higher level areas. Some potions will have negative properties. Having a higher level Alchemy skills reduces this effect.

metalworking.pngBlacksmithing

This crafting profession makes heavy armor and melee weapons. Once you have your materials gathered you simply need go the appropriate crafting station, select what weapon or armor piece you'd like to make and then the fun begins. In Elder Scrolls Online, when you make a weapon or armor piece you will pick the recipe you'd like to make and then add a Style. The Style will determine the cosmetic properties of said piece. Once the style is selected you will choose the trait for that piece (see list below). This enhances the piece with preset qualities. After your piece of equipment is created you can further enhance it with Honing Stones. These can be found in crating nodes across Tamriel.
