It is impossible to imagine an MMO game without items created by players. Crafting is a very important part of gameplay that makes game more interesting. Crafting system in ESO is allows to create different items that will help you in the game. All professions are very useful and items created by crafters will not disappoint you. Note: crafting is really useful. Each profession allows to craft top level items that can’t be received somewhere else. Bonuses from professions will really help you.
There are five general professions:
- Provisioning – allows to create food and other supply that helps you to restore health, magicka, stamina and can give temporary bonus to these stats.
- Enchanting – allows to add special effects that make your items cooler.
- Blacksmithing – profession that allows to create and improve heavy armor and weapon using different types of ingots.
- Clothing – allows to create and improve light and medium armor.
- Woodworking – allows to create and improve different staffs and bows using wood.
- Alchemy – allows to create different potions that make you stronger in battle.
These professions cover everything you can craft in the game.Each race has unique armor and weapon appearance. And it is not only about high level items. All armor and weapon in the game that can be crafted has racial styles. When you start playing ESO you can craft items using only style of your race. For example Imperials can craft only in Imperial style. You need to discover other races’ styles in order to be able to use them in crafting. Explore the world and look for recipes and books.
Crafting skills can be found at the skills tab under class, weapon and armor skills. You don’t receive special crafting points. You need to spend your skill points in order to learn crafting skills. That means you will have to distribute points attentively – if you spend all your points in crafting you will be weak on the battlefield.
You have no limitations in how to spend points. There is no any limit on how many professions you can master. Just make sure you have enough skill points and materials. Such mechanics creates a situation when one player can master all professions..

Blacksmith needs anvil and forge, Alchemist needs special Alchemist’s laboratory, Enchanter needs Enchanter’s table and Provisioner needs campfire or other fire.

Materials and Ingredients
Ingredients are the most important part of any recipe. You need to have enough materials for creating any item in ESO. Many materials can be found everywhere: in houses, in the street, in fields or in dungeons. Gathering plays an important role in the game. Different ingredients have different respawn time.
Do not think that you will have to grind a lot in order to create something valuable. No, developers told that their goal was to make the game interesting for players. In general, crafting is based on exploration. You will have to combine different ingredients in order to discover new effects. This process is interesting and you will have a lot of fun.
When you dive into The Elder Scrolls Online, one of the first things you’re going to notice is that there’s a lot of interactivity in the world. There are barrels around, there are crates around, and you’re like, “What’s going on here?” so you start to click on them and you say, “Oh! There are items in them!” There are fruits, there are vegetables, there are grains, but it’s not just useless stuff. Right now, you can take any one of these items that you find and it’s going to be part of a recipe; it’s going to be part of the crafting system.
