Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

Blacksmith Writs are available to anyone who completes the Blacksmith Certification quest. The quest can be picked up from the Equipment Crafting Writs boards once per day.

"Seeking skilled blacksmiths to fulfill simple requisitions! Your goods could make the difference! Carefully examine specific orders as you take them from the board!"
<Pull a Writ from the Board.>

Below is a list of Crafting writ boards and quartermaster locations. Master Writs can only be dropped off in the capital city of an alliance. Some cities offer better placement of pick-up/drop-off points, stations and the bank (if needed) - resulting in faster completion of numerous writs. Notable locations are highlighted:

The items needed will always be a mix of weapons and armor, in any of three different combinations.

  • 1 helm, 1 dagger and 1 pauldron
  • 1 cuirass, 1 sword and 1 greaves
  • 1 greatsword, 1 sabatons and 1 gauntlets

After the goods are made, you will need to deliver them to any writ turn-in station in Tamriel. Before the Homestead Update, you had to go to a specific city to drop your goods off.

The material needed to craft is dependent on the characters' rank in the appropriate skill and also defines the level of the reward received.

Metalworking Amount Material 00000Inspiration Reward
1 12-15 Iron 1000 Blacksmith's Crate I
2 15-18 Steel 2000 Blacksmith's Crate II

9 36-40 Voidstone 20000 Blacksmith's Crate IX
10 36-40 Rubedite 20000 Blacksmith's Crate X

Once you have completed the writ, you can head to the nearest item depot to deliver the goods:

<The crate contains ample space for deliveries, and a sheaf of manifest papers.>
<Place the goods within the crate.>

The response from the crate is selected from one of three responses based on your blacksmithing level.
