A player character using an enchanting table.

For enchanting in other games, see Enchanting.

Enchanting is a crafting profession in The Elder Scrolls Online. The Vestige must find runestones around Tamriel and examine them to get a rune. Then the Vestige must combine an aspect rune, an essence rune and a potency rune in order to create a glyph, that can be used later to enchant weapons, armor or jewelry.
