Crafting is one of many different skills that exist in The Elder Scrolls Online. There are several different crafting professions to choose from with crafting, including: 

Crafting Stations[]

All characters will be able to take part in all professions immediately without any training. Necessary tools such as pickaxes and fishing rods are built in to the character.


Some raw materials need to be converted into craftable ingredients. To do this, they need to be extracted. Materials can only be extracted in stacks of ten, however this stack of ten raw materials will not necessarily produce ten refined materials. For example, ten iron ore, can be refined into eight iron ingots.

Style Materials[]

Main article: Style Materials

Style Materials are items that can be purchased from any crafting vendor, which determine the style of a crafted armor or weapon. In the beginning, the Vestige can craft items only using their own race style. Other styles however can be unlocked using Racial Motifs found throughout the game, making the Vestige able to craft with those style materials.

Crafted Item Sets[]

Main article: Crafted Item Set

Crafted Item Sets give special bonuses to the weapon or armor crafted. To gain a bonus, the Vestige must equip at least two pieces of that set, an additional bonus will be granted for every additional item of the same set that is equipped up to a maximum of five. Sets can be looted in a variety of situations or created by blacksmithing, clothing and woodworking in specific locations in the world. These sets, however, can only be crafted in specific locations scattered around the world, and different bonuses are found at different crafting locations.

Outfit Stations[]

Main article: Outfit Station

Visit an outfit system to create your own outfit from an outfit set. Use the tools to apply your own armors from a set of unlocked armors, as well as to dye them. Use the eye dropper tool to pick colors from previously dyed gear, and apply that color elsewhere. Paint Bucket Tool applies the dye you have selected to the corresponding color area of every piece of gear you have equipped. Use Outfit System Tokens from the Crown Store to dye once without having to pay Gold.
