A Woodworker in the Elder Scrolls Online collects high quality wood that can be used to craft elegant staves, bows, and shields. Woodworkers use these materials at Woodworking Stations, one of the many mills found in cities and towns throughout Tamriel. Here they can refine raw resources, improve existing items, research various traits, and deconstruct staves and shields they have found throughout their journey.

Skilled Woodworkers are always seeking to learn new techniques to better their skills at the mill. Finding special crafting books is the key to learning new Racial Styles, while researching Traits allows for the creation of higher quality staves and shields.

Woodworking Tips

  • Deconstructing dropped items or those crafted by others is the best way to gain inspiration and level up
  • Putting points into Wood Extraction will increase your chances to extract special resins, and is therefore highly advisable
  • Finding leather may be harder than cloth, as you must defeat enemies for it.
  • Start with your Research as soon as possible, the best crafted sets require many traits researched per piece.
  • See the Writs page for details on daily changes to get inspiration experience and special resins.
