Crafting Writs are repeatable quests available to any certified crafter who is at least level 6. Crafting Writs can be accepted from writs boards located in major towns and cities. Accepting a writ begins an associated quest. Successful completion of a crafting writ will reward experience, gold, a consumable box of supplies, and inspiration for that profession. One writ for each profession may be completed per day. Daily writs reset at 0600 GMT (in your local time).

Locations[edit]

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:

Certification[edit]

To accept crafting writs, you must first become certified in your chosen professions. The certification process involves a short quest where you are required to craft an item for a master crafter NPC, and serves as a tutorial to the crafting systems. If you are already an established crafter, and have reached Rank 10 in a particular crafting skill line, you can skip the tutorial section and become certified immediately.

Normal Writs[edit]

The following is a list of crafting writ quests that can be picked up at writ boards. These writs are relatively straightforward and inexpensive to complete. Arms and armor are always requested at the lowest quality, with no additional trait and can be created at regular Crafting Stations.

Crafting Survey Reports[edit]

The rewards for fulfilling crafting writs, except Provisioner writs, may randomly include Survey Reports, which are similar to Treasure Maps. When you receive one, a collection of high-yield gathering nodes are added to a specific location, identified by the symbol on the map. These high-yield nodes do not appear unless you have the corresponding survey. It is possible to be rewarded with the same report multiple times. If this occurs, the nodes will respawn, but possibly with a different configuration of materials.

You can receive surveys for any zone, including zones you have never visited. (Though you will not receive surveys for Wrothgar or Vvardenfell if you do not have access to the relevant DLCs.[verification needed])

Provisioners do not receive survey reports, and instead have a chance of being rewarded Recipes when they turn in writs.

Master Writs[edit]

Master writs are special writs that can be rewarded to you after completing a normal top-tier writ. These are sealed requests that require you to create a master item, for example a Sealed Alchemy Writ. Unlike regular writs, the requested master item can be of purple or gold quality, include a trait and may require rare ingredients or components. Arms or armor writs typically ask for the piece to be crafted in a specific craftable set. Crafting such items require special crafting stations that can only be found at Crafting Sites across the world, or having access to an appropriately attuned crafting station in a player home.

Once master writs are accepted, they are entered into your journal as quests and the writ item disappears from your inventory. Care should be taken before accepting a master writ quest to make sure you have the skills, researched traits or any other requirements to complete it. Only one type of master writ quest can be accepted at any one time, and they cannot be abandoned and re-accepted like others quest. There is no daily limit or cooldown on Master Writs. Below is a list of each possible quest:

Profession Quest Name
Alchemy Repeatable A Masterful Concoction: Concoct a specific Alchemical product.
Blacksmithing Repeatable A Masterful Plate: Forge a specific Heavy Armor.
Repeatable A Masterful Weapon: Forge a specific metal Weapon.
Clothing Repeatable Masterful Leatherwear: Sew a specific Medium Armor.
Repeatable Masterful Tailoring: Sew a specific Light Armor.
Enchanting Repeatable A Masterful Glyph: Craft a specific Enchanting glyph.
Jewelry Crafting Repeatable Masterful Jewelry: Craft a specific piece of Jewelry.
Provisioning Repeatable A Masterful Feast: Cook up a specific Provisioning product.
Woodworking Repeatable A Masterful Shield: Construct a specific Shield.
Repeatable A Masterful Weapon: Construct a specific wooden Weapon.

Completing a Master Writ will reward you with Writ Vouchers, which can be used to buy special or unique items from Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator.

Generally, the more complex and expensive the writ, the more vouchers you will receive. The lowest reward possible is 0022Writ Vouchers Writ Vouchers for a relatively simple and inexpensive alchemy potion. The highest reward can be several hundred Writ Vouchers for Jewelry writs, which themselves are extremely expensive to craft. Ultimately, low-reward alchemy and enchanting master writs can be more cost-effective to complete than high-reward armor, weapon and especially jewelry writs due to the cost of materials and tempers.

Sealed Master Writs can be traded or transferred between characters, but the requested item itself must be crafted by the character that accepted the Master Writ quest. Requested items cannot be traded between characters to complete the quest.
