Dark Brotherhood: New Motifs

Abah's Watch

With the release of the Dark Brotherhood, we welcome three new crafting motifs to the Elder Scrolls Online universe. We’re currently hard at work putting together a comprehensive guide with information on all of the game’s motifs, but for now, here’s a brief preview showcasing the ones that are coming to Tamriel later today.

As we mentioned in our recent trade tips article, you can expect these motifs to fetch a pretty penny during the Dark Brotherhood patch’s nascent days, so if you’re interested in exploiting the upcoming demand spike, read on for information on how to acquire these new crafting style books.

 


 

 Crafting Motifs 34: Assassins League

 Info

By the Gray Maybe

The “Dark Brotherhood”? Utter nonsense. The Brotherhood is a myth. A legend. A lie. Death comes to us all, and murder is merely a matter of mundane craft. There’s no need to invoke the Void, or its, ahem, mother.

Ah, but a secret society of assassins, a guild of killers for hire. Now that makes sense. That’s just good business. And like every good business, we have standards. You wish to join us, and dress like one of our league? Then follow the instructions below. And one day, if you are found worthy, you may be invited to learn some actual secrets.

Acquisition
Note: Dark Brotherhood DLC required

Chapters can be found by defeating bosses in the Gold Coast accordingly:

  • Hrota Cave Boss drops boots, bows, chests, maces, and swords.
  • Garlas Agea Boss drops helmets, legs, shields, shoulders, and staves.
  • Kvatch Arena Boss drops daggers and gloves
  • Tribunes Folly Boss drops axes and belts
Style Material
Raw-Material-Dried-BloodDried blood is obtained solely from using the Blade of Woe. One’s ability to harvest blood from kills with the Blade of Woe is dependent both on their knowledge of the Assassins League style, and their rank in the Dark Brotherhood. Style-Material-Tainted-BloodThe style item for the Assasins League motif is Tainted Blood which drops very rarely from using the Blade of Woe. Your most likely source of Tainted Blood is to refine 10 Dried Blood to acquire 1 Tainted Blood.

 


 

Crafting Motifs 33: Thieves Guild

Do you know what’s a good way to waste money? Actually, you probably know a lot of ways to waste money. Let me rephrase that: do you know a good way to save money? I’ll tell you. Buy in bulk, and have any manufactured goods made to specific standards. Economy: that’s the reason Thieves Guild arms and armor need to follow the specifications below.

Acquisition
Note: Thieves Guild DLC required

Chapters for this motif (or rarely, the full book) can be acquired in the Unidentified Equipment boxes obtained as a reward for performing Heists to the Thieves Guild’s highest standards.

Style Material
 Raw-Material-Coarse-ChalkCourse Chalk is occasionally found in Thieves Troves. This is the sole source for Coarse Chalk.  Style-Material-Fine-ChalkThe style item for the Thieves Guild motif is Fine Chalk and it is rarely found in Thieves Troves. Your most likely source of Fine Chalk is to refine 10 Coarse Chalk into 1 Fine Chalk.

 


 

Crafting Motifs 32: Abah’s Watch

At-Addin Syndicate Memo: Outfitting the Abah’s Landing Watch

I just sold that Iron Wheel outfit a load of first-quality arms and armor good enough that our own Abah’s Landing guards are going to look shabby in comparison, and that’s not going to do. We need to show a united front to the Wheel, with a standardized look to our guards. Based on what we’ve got in the warehouses, let’s equip them as indicated below.

Acquisition
Note: Thieves Guild DLC required for motif only

Chapters for this motif (or rarely, the full book) can be acquired in the Large Laundered Shipments obtained from the repeatable quests found in the Thieves Guild hideout.

Style Material
 Raw-Material-Guards-ShillingGuard’s Shilling appears to be a scrapped idea from ZOS. I guess they decided that the risk of pickpocketing guards in the game was enough punishment for acquiring this motif’s style item.  Style-Material-Polished-ShillingThe style item for the Thieves Guild motif is the Polished Shilling and it can sometimes be found by pickpocketing any guard throughout the world (not just in Abah’s Landing).

    You can’t really say that when you have no idea what the drop rates are. It could very easily turn out the other way around if the disparity is great enough.

    I just did about 14 back to back Thieves Guild repeatable quests for Kari, the pickpocketing and lockbox ones and didn’t get a single laundered shipment. I got one from a Thieves Trove but it didn’t have one in it. Has anyone gotten any of the Abah’s Watch pages yet? On the other hand, I’ve gotten 2 Thieves Guild motif pages from 2 different heists.

    I’ve gotten one. You have to do all three stages of the Thieves Guild repeatable mission to get the large laundered shipment. If you return to Kari early, you won’t get the correct loot box.

    Thank you, I found this out from a post on reddit. The drop rate still seems to be pretty low from the boxes, I’ve gotten the shield motif after probably ten fully finished quests.
