Master Writs are mysterious, exclusive contracts for high-quality and very specific equipment, or very specific alchemical substances, enchantments, or provisions. These are using for the Homestead or Player Housing portion of the game.
You're a crafter that's created everything that can be made. What's there to do now beyond making items for your guildmates and friends? Master Writs are for you, and you can learn more about these exclusive contracts!
- All Master Writs currently award a single voucher when completed instead of the expected amount. To account for this issue, the Master Writ Vendor is currently selling everything for one voucher each.
- In rare cases, it is possible to receive an Alchemy Master Writ that requires an impossible combination of effects.
- Alchemy Master Writs that require poisons cannot currently be completed.
- Sealed Provisioning Master Writs do not indicate all of the items that need to be crafted to complete them. Once accepted, the associated quest correctly lists all of the requirements.
What are Master Writs? Where do I get Master Writs from?
Master Writs can occasionally be found in the rewards from finishing a maximum tier, regular crafting Writs.
Who can do Master Writs?
Not just anyone! Master Writs are meant specifically for masters – they require specific sets, or specific crafting styles, that not everyone has access to. Further, Master Writs are only awarded to players completing the hardest normal crafting Writs, and are more common when you have a lot of dedication. For example, Blacksmithing, Woodworking, and Clothier Master Writs are more common if you've done a lot of difficult research; Provisioning Master Writs are more common when you've learned a lot of difficult recipes; Enchanting Master Writs are more common when you've translated a lot of runes; and Alchemy Master Writs are more common when you've fully identified a lot of herbs. The more you've done in that tradeskill, the better your odds on each normal Writ you complete.
How do I complete Master Writs?
Pay close attention to the requested items. You'll need to make the item yourself, on the character that has the Master Writ quest. Requested items cannot be traded between characters to satisfy these, and the items cannot be bound.
How many can I do per day?
As many as you have the invitations for. There is no daily limit or cooldown on Master Writs.
Additionally, you can trade Master Writs around to people who are more likely or able to complete them. You could even get them on your alts and trade them back to your 'main crafter' if you have one, or host a festival with friends to trade Master Writs all day.
What are Master Writ Vouchers? What can I buy with them?
Writ Vouchers are a type of currency that Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator that arrives after you've started the journey of Master Writs, pays master crafters in for their work. Rolis is a very rare merchant, and sells a very specific and select roster of goods. He accepts Writ Vouchers in exchange for his goods such as the Ebony crafting motif, Target Skeletons for practicing combat skills, epic and legendary furnishing plans, or the recipe for high-quality bonus experience drinks.
Can Master Writ Vouchers themselves be traded/sold?
No. Writ Vouchers are personal, for you and you alone to spend.
Can the items I get from turning in Master Writs be traded/sold?
Yes, they can. If you no longer need or want anything from Rolis Hlaalu's store, you can use your own vouchers to buy things for others, or to resell on the Guild Trader network for profit.
What can I do with the items I get for completing Master Writs?
You can sell them if you want, or use them yourself. You could outfit all of your characters in the very stylish Ebony motif. You could fill all of your homes with crafting stations attuned to every craftable item set in Tamriel, just to be able to craft anything at home. You could build a wall of Target Skeletons right inside the door to your home. You could make improved experience drinks – Aetherial Ambrosia – for yourself and your friends and guild. Or you could sell that Ambrosia for fun and profit.
Will you be adding to the Master Writ system in future updates?
As we add new motifs, traits, and crafted sets, we do plan to eventually add them to the Master Writ rotation of requested goods. And, as we add new features, tools and décor to the player housing system, you can expect Rolis Hlaalu's inventory to grow and change.
