Why Do Crafting Writs?
GOLD, Gold, gold!
Daily Crafting Writs are probably the easiest and most consistent way for new players to get gold and crafting materials. Daily Crafting Writs net you 4.5k gold, crafting materials, surveys, and Master Writs, but more on those later. Just for fun- let's say you did your writs every day on all 9 of your free character slots. That's 40k gold per day or 1.2 million gold per month! AND loads of crafting materials, including those needed to gold out your gear!
Prerequisite - Certification
Before you can do your daily writs, you will need to do the writ certification quest. This will become available at Level 6.
Speak to these NPC's to complete their corresponding crafting certifications. You can do this in any city or town.
- Light and Medium Armor
- Heavy Armor and Melee Weapons
- Shields, Staves, Bows
- Drinks and Meals (food buffs)
- Glyphs for enchanting gear/jewels/weapons
- Potions and Poisons
*NOTE: Felarian, can only be found in Alinor- the main city in Summerset.
- Necklace and Rings
- ESO+ or Summerset Chapter required for jewelry crafting
Once you have completed these certifications, you are ready to do your daily writs, which will reset at the same time every day.
Daily Crafting Writs
Once you have completed your writ certifications, you can now do daily crafting writs. For this guide, I chose to do them in Vivec- the main city in Vardenfell, but you can do so in any city or town.
Writs are a 3-Step process.
STEP 1 Accept the Daily Crafting writ Quests from the Writ Board
STEP 2 Craft the Requested Items (every bench has its own item list)
STEP 3 Turn in the Quests
- 4,500 gold
- Random crafting materials, sometimes rare and valuable
- Surveys which will take you to a location where you will find 5 or so nodes, each containing around 20 corresponding items
- Master Writs
- Valuable writs that yield better rewards AND writ vouchers which can be spent on things like crafting benches and STORAGE COFFERS for your home. (YES MORE STORAGE!) More on Master Writs here.
If you install these addons and reload your UI and the addon won't craft the items for you, you are likely MISSING some of the crafting materials. The addons will tell you in chat which materials you are short on. Head to a guild trader and buy them in bulk for cheap. After playing for a while you will no longer need to buy these, as deconstructing gear and collecting nodes will provide all the materials you need.
PC ONLY: If you are on PC stop what you are doing, install Lazy Writ Crafter and reload your UI ( by typing /reloadui in chat). This addon will make it so that all you have to is accept the quest, and then walk up to a bench and interact with it, but don't press anything else. The addon will take control from here and craft all corresponding items at that bench. walk up to the next bench, watch it craft, and so on until all of your writs are complete. Once you've crafted all the items go turn them all in. This addon makes doing all of your writs take about 1 minute.
This addon will handle the crafting of your alchemy writs.
This addon will handle the crafting of your provisioning writs
This addon will tell you how much it will cost to make the master writ and whether you have learned the required recipes, blueprints, passives, etc to complete it. DO NOT START MASTER WRITS THAT YOU CANNOT COMPLETE. Save them for later or sell them. You can only have one master writ active at a time.
