Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

When completing a Woodworker Writ at the highest Woodworking level, you may receive a writ for a specific shield (see also: A Masterful Weapon). This item will need to:

  • Be at least Champion Points150, which means you must have enough Ruby Ash on hand.
  • Have a specific trait, which means you must have researched that trait for that item type and have the necessary trait material on hand.
  • Have a specific style, which means you must have learned the motif for that item type and have the necessary style material on hand.
  • Be of a specific set, which means you must have researched enough traits for that set, and visit one of that set's Crafting Sites to create it.
  • Be of at least Epic quality, and possibly Legendary, which means you must upgrade the item 3 or 4 times.

The Resin Expertise skill will reduce the number of Resins required to safely upgrade the item. You can get away with as few as 1 each if you want to gamble, but given the expense of the materials involved, it's highly advisable to max your Resin Expertise and use the maximum number of Resins each time to guarantee a 100% chance and not risk destroying the item in the process. This means that for each item, you will want to have 2 Pitch, 3 Turpen, and 4 Mastic, and also 8 Rosin for Legendary writs.

Once you have created the item, bring it to Rolis Hlaalu at the Aldmeri Dominion Elden RootDaggerfall Covenant WayrestEbonheart Pact Mournhold writ drop-off locations for your reward.


Due to the nature of this list, the possibilities are nearly limitless. Therefore, an exhaustive list would be prohibitively long.
Contributions are welcome and encouraged, but please consider if your additions are sufficiently different from the existing entries to warrant inclusion.

For more information, see the help files, the style guide, and this article's talk page.

Note that some of these items require motifs or crafting sites from the various DLCs. It is still possible to create these items if you do not have access to these DLCs, however, if you purchase the motifs from Guild Traders and visit a player's house with the appropriate attuned crafting stations.
