Ghastley is right. This discussion about that passive clearly says that it is supposed to cover staffs too; but that doesn't mean the Redguard will be OP since their overall passives gear them toward being stam based (and of course you can only tell if the destro staff is actually proc'ing your Passive by using something like "Combat Metrics" and looking for that buff in the upper right section of the main page.

Here is the discussion about it from the Official forums:

Some more thoughts on Jewel Crafting:

Aurbic Amber only drops from Psijic Portals, and in Pulverised form at that. So to stand any chance of getting enough to use, everyone needs to see the portals. That means doing enough of the Summerset main quest to get to Artaeum, and doing the first quest of the Psijic Order line.

My Unna has now done both quest lines to get the Exemplary ring and necklace, so it's time to send the others through the mill, and open up the portals for all.

It wasn't clear what the conditions were for the Undaunted rewards to drop their material - Dibellium, but I think I already had some, so maybe it's just Summerset. We're doing the daily delves to grind for the passives, so it should just happen.

And those Jewelry Crafting traits and tempers sell for such a high cost that = if you do get them; (unless the Master Writ pays in several hundred vouchers) = it is not cost effective at all to actually do the Master Writs. (However; crafting jewelry for your own character's sets is always a great cause!

You can buy the items you need from guild trader shelves if you get stuck and really want a certain trait for your own character's jewelry; though. That way the cost is an investment in bettering your own character's abilities. But the Master Writs for Jewelry = not worth the cost to the player at all imho.

Nobody's got up to using copper yet, so Master Writs are not even on the radar.

So far I have four characters through the first Psijic quest to get the ability to see the Psijic Portals. Those are the ones who have researched past the basic three traits. I spread that around, on the (false) assumption that they'd then make more researchable pieces for each other. It appears that the materials to do so are also going to be hard to get. So far, we don't have enough Pulverized anything to make the solid.

Since you have to do two complete quests on each character - one to gain access to Artaeum, and the first one of the Psijic line for the See the Unseen passive - I'll take one character through each evening, after the daily writs, undaunted, etc. Hopefully we'll then get a decent number of portals, an a chance at the Aurbic Amber (and more Infused jewels to put back in the bank).

Exemplary rings and necklaces don't appear to be expensive, but I didn't see anything but the dropped ones being sold. Is there a reason for that?

Hey how do I get my character to put her fists down??? This is driving me crazy. My character's name is Anna Khanda, by the way. So Anna just fought Naryu Virian in the tutorial, but now she's standing there with her fists up, and I can't figure out which key makes them her fists down (or put her weapon away).

Try “Z” maybe? Khajiit uses an Xbox controller so is not sure what the keybinding is. Had to look it up online. Here is the article.

Ah, great, thanx. I'm trying to use a controller too, but even with a regular keyboard I couldn't find Ready Weapon.

"Z" is the default key for putting weapons away.

The quickest way to find out where the game has set the keys up is to press "Escape" on the keyboard; and on the drop-down list = choose "Controls." A window will open up with every action in the game on the left; and the key it is "bound to" in the box next to it.

If you change any of those "bound" keys; make sure the game isn't using them for something else first by scanning down the list of boxes for "bound keys"

If you use any add-ons (mod your game) = this is where the controls for your add-ons will be found too.

I have not yet run all my characters through the Psijic line first level, as it does take some time. I'll be doing that so they all get to see, and use, Psijic portals. However, I'm starting to wonder what benefit I'll get out of the Jewel crafting. It looks like I may have some use for making and upgrading jewels, so levelling it up will save me using too many platings, but the new traits don't seem very useful, and Master Writs are a waste of time. Laurie will need to research all the traits so she can make set jewels, but that's all possible outside Summerset.

Now that Unna has run through the quest-lines, is there anything more worth doing, or should I just get Elsweyr and move on?

If you want one of those waterfalls for any of your houses; I think you have to do a certain number of those dailies (the ones for doing the Geysers). I think the lady that gives those Dailies sits between the house and the wayshrine near where you turn to go down to the crafting area.

I haven't done all the quests yet; so don't know what else you might miss; except maybe some furniture crafting plans or motifs.

Only one of my characters has completed the Psijic line (and she is the only one who researched all the jewelry traits too = my main character Misa. She is the only one who researched Nirnhoned traits too).

The rest have just researched the three basic ones (Arcane, Healthy, and Robust) plus the Infused trait, (because the Infused drops like water from the Psijic Portals).

The "Swift" trait falls fairly well from the Psijic Portals; but sells so well and for such a high price that I couldn't see using it for the other character's researching since Misa already knew it.

I've actually had all the traits except Triune drop from the Psijic Portals in both ring and necklace forms; but so rarely that it probably isn't worth waiting for. One of them came timely for my character to research; the rest I bought from the Guild Traders.

I do want my two other player characters to go through the Psijic line too; just haven't had the time yet. I tried to take a character from my Son's game through it = she couldn't beat that awful Sload; so is kind of hung at that spot till I can figure something out for her.

And you are right about doing the Master Writs not being worth it; but having at least one character know the Jewelry crafting traits is def worthwhile.

Misa makes traited jewelry for sets she crafts for the other characters; that alone is worth it. Plus = when I do come across the gems for making traited jewelry; you can craft and sell them for a wonderful income for other people's researching or to make jewelry sets for others by custom order too.

Laurie will do the whole Master Crafter thing at some point, but I don't think I'll have everyone else bother with much more JC. Opening up the Psijic portals on all characters is probably where I'll stop.

I may possibly have Unna do enough side-quests to buy the Alinor house for gold, since she has more done than anyone else, and that's a decent house to have. However, I don't have any other targets that involve Summerset specifically, so none of the others needs to spend significant time there. Jewel Crafting can be advanced without any more Summerset involvement. In fact I think all the remaining traits require going somewhere else.

ETA: Unna did buy the Alinor Townhouse, and Laurie is close to Level 40 on her Jewel Crafting now. Everyone is doing their daily JC writs to get the Intricates to pass on to her, as half of those are platinum to match their playing level, and bump her up quite quickly. Any other rings and necklaces from dolmens and other loot are platinum, but likely not Intricate, so she needs more of those. Level 40 will open up Electrum and another level of Plating Research, so a skyshard run is also on her to-do list.

Further edit: We have Taminwe doing as many new dolmens as she can, to ramp up her FG, gather jewelery for Laurie (one piece guaranteed from each dolmen), and get the three achievements for all of each alliance's anchors. She's almost reached FG 9 so far, and has done two complete alliances (15 anchors each), so this doesn't appear to be very efficient on the FG target. Laurie, however, is now at 45 in JC, so we'll keep doing it.

Laurie bought some Exemplary jewels (<10k a piece) so she has a reserve to work through for traits. We'll get more when the opportunity for a good deal turns up, but only enough for her to learn all the traits. I don't see a reason for more than one crafter to do so.

The dropped price on the Elsweyr chapter is getting me tempted. I've done the main Summerset quest, and the Psijic one, and quite a lot of the side-quests over there. Jewel crafting is now just a matter of research times, so I'm just about where I consider Summerset done.

I've played a lot of the Elsweyr quest line on PTS, and liked it. If it gives me an extra slot, I'd probably create a stam necro character, and go through levelling again, but with one of each race now, I'd have a hard time deciding what the necro should be.

Or I could wait until it becomes a DLC, which is still a long way off.
