Inspiration is the name of crafting experience in Elder Scrolls Online. All six crafting professions use inspiration-eso-crafting-leveling Inspiration as a measure for experience to rank up, and they all use the same amount of inspiration for all ranks.

 

How to gain inspiration & level up crafting in ESO

In order to gain access to higher crafting skills, you must rank up your crafting level. This is done by gaining inspiration from deconstructing items looted or made by other players, and to a lesser extent crafting items yourself. The higher the level and quality of the deconstructed item, the more inspiration gained.

You may also see perform daily writs, which grant daily inspiration in exchange for a few materials scaled to your crafting level, and may also yield special crafting items including Motifs and rare Trait & Style Gems.
