Styles are the appearance or look of the Weapons and Armor you are wearing in Elder Scrolls Online. Every Weapon and Armor has a Style and that defines how it will appear. It is purely cosmetic. Gear drops in all different Styles and you can craft Weapons and Armor in various styles.

In order for you to craft a Weapon or Armor in a certain Style you must find or purchase the matching Motif for that Style and read it and have one of the stones needed to make a piece of that type. Motifs are scattered in various containers through out Tamriel and it is more difficult to find some Motifs than others. There are currently far more Styles than Motifs, so it is not possible to craft all the Styles in the game. Below is a list of all the Styles with a couple of pieces of each so you can see what they look like (some Styles only have a couple pieces currently).

 

How to find Motifs & Gems

Motifs and style gems are randomly found in containers (such as pots, night-stands, etc) throughout the world and by completing Daily and Weekly quests wihin the game. Below is a list of every obtainable Motif, along with those currently unavailble. Zenimax tends to tease a Style and then add it as craftable with a future update, so many of the uncraftable Styles are expected to become availaibe at a later date.

Style Gems can also be obtained when deconstructing an item of the respective style. Or you may purchase the ten initial racial styles from vendors at crafting stations. You may also obtain gems via the hirelings of Blacksmithing, Clothing and Woodworking crafts, as well as from Daily and Weekly quests.

      • 28 Feb 2017 16:26  

        I'm a novice at wikis so made the following changes as best as I could:
        Added information for sets already listed in the table that were added at the housing update.
        Amended Assassins League motif entry.
        Added Motif numbers for Skinchanger and Hollowjack styles.

        Still to do:
        Entry for Dwemer style - Found in Dwemer ruins -
        Entry for Silken Ring style - Found in Shadows of the Hist DLC Cradle of Shadows dungeon - Distilled Slowsilver - Crafting Motif 44
