A blacksmith survey report

Survey Reports are items that can be given as a reward from Crafting Writs, and are similar to Treasure Maps. When you receive one, a collection of six high-yield nodes are added to a specific location, identified by the symbol on the map. Jewelry Crafting Surveys use a text description instead of a map. These high-yield nodes do not exist unless you have the corresponding survey. It is possible to be rewarded with the same report multiple times, and if this occurs, the nodes will respawn, but possibly with a different configuration of materials.

There is one survey per profession (excluding Provisioning) for each major Alliance zone, with two for Coldharbour, three for Craglorn and Wrothgar, and one for Vvardenfell. The smaller zone DLCs do not have surveys. Provisioners do not receive survey reports, and instead have a chance of being rewarded Recipes when they turn in writs.

You can receive multiple surveys for the same material and same location. Originally you could only have one copy of each in your inventory at a time, with any additional copies remaining stuck in the original reward container. This does not apply anymore, as identical survey reports will stack. The nodes respawn as long as you move a short distance away.

For Blacksmithing, Jewelry Crafting, and Woodworking surveys, you will find three nodes containing materials appropriate for your level, and three appropriate for your associated crafting passive skill level. (These may be of course be the same level.) For Clothing, you will find four fabric material nodes and two Furrier's Traps containing leather materials, again split 50/50 between your character level and your crafting level. Alchemy surveys will contain six plant-type reagents, and Enchanting surveys will contain six runestones, each of which contains several runes of each type. It is possible to receive survey maps on a low-level or low-skilled character and transfer them to another character via your bank to a higher level character in order to get better materials.
