Homestead: New Motifs

Orsimer_Weaponsmith

With the release of the Homestead, we welcome four new crafting motifs to the Elder Scrolls Online universe. Here’s a brief preview showcasing the ones coming to Tamriel in February.

As we mentioned in a past trade tips article, you can expect these motifs to fetch a pretty penny during the Homestead 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 28: Ra Gada

 Info

By Lady Cinnabar of Taneth

The Ra Gada or “Warrior Wave” of settlers from Yokuda actually occurred in four successive waves in the First Era’s ninth century. This catalogue focuses on the second, or “Tavan” wave, so-called because it was spearheaded by the Hattu Metropoles brigade, which revered holy Tava, Lady of the Air. Thus the Tavans’ arms and armor are replete with bird imagery. This second wave primarily settled on the southern coast of Hammerfell, and almost three millennia later their structures can still be found jutting from the coastal dunes. And one doesn’t have to look far to see the influence of these ancient settlers on modern Redguard society.

Acquisition

The Ra Gada style can now be found in Craglorn. The chapters of the style are rarely available from completing Focus Points, and very rarely found by killing Delve and World Bosses, opening locked Treasure Chests, or following Treasure Maps.

Style Material
 

 

 

There appears to be no raw material associated with this motif.

Ancient Sandstone is found from the same sources used to acquire the motif itself. The drop rate for the style item is higher than that for the motif pages.

 


 

Crafting Motifs 37: Ebony

 Info

By Frikkhild Coldheart of The Anvil & Pauldron

The Ebony style of arms and armor: so striking, so strange, so distinctive that there’s no mistaking it. But how are we to account for its bizarre admixture of stylistic forms, Dunmer, Nord, and even Daedric? Where does it come from, and who established it? I have spent years seeking the answers to these questions, and all I have for my pains are a few names and terms that may (or may not) apply. Mackkan. Caldera. Fickledire. “Glorious Upheaval.” I wish I knew what these words mean, but I do not. I only know that the Ebony style is ancient, and can be defined as described below.

Acquisition

Individual chapters of the style, or the whole book, can be purchased for Master Writ vouchers from Rolis Hlaalu the Mastercraft Mediator. The individual pages can be purchased for 25 Master Writ vouchers and the whole book for 300 Master Writ vouchers.

Style Material
 The raw material for this style appears to not drop in the game.  Night Pumice can be purchased from Rolis Hlaalu for 8 Master Writ vouchers.

 


 

Crafting Motifs 44: Silken Ring

 Info

By Bathed-in-Steel, First Armorer of Stormhold

First of all, a warning: do not be so careless as to allow these instructions to fall into the wrong hands! If the authorities in Stormhold knew I was hiring out-of-work smiths to create arms and armor for the Silken Ring, my head would soon be adorning a pike on the Big Bridge!

Second of all: follow these instructions to the letter. You don’t want a secret society of assassins irritated at you because you made them squeaky boots. Pay attention, hatchling, and we’ll all profit.

Note: Shadows of the Hist DLC required

The Silken Ring style can be found in the Cradle of Shadows dungeon. The chapters can be obtained from killing the final boss of the dungeon: rarely on Normal mode, more often on Veteran mode, and a guaranteed drop on Veteran Hard mode.

Style Material

Crafting Motifs 45: Mazzatun

 Info

By Armsman Omeeta, Stormhold Fighters Guildhall

I try to catalogue the arms and equipment of all the deep marsh tribes. It helps our fighters identify who and what we’re up against. This Mazzatun gear, with its panoply of plumes and avian and reptilian skulls, is particularly garish. That’s fine by me: it makes identifying it all the easier. What follows are brief descriptions of arms and armor of Mazzatun origin, both for the record and for the use of guild fighters in the field.
