Welcome back to ESO, Rader! We did notice you pop on around the meeting start time then drop right off so figured you might be having problems. Thanks for the update and sorry you missed us for the time I was on.

Buffy, Laurie (ghastley) and Pia (mALX) got together and did the Elden Hollow 1 pledge (normal) and it went very smoothly. First time for Laurie so she got a skill point out of it. Laurie did a great job tanking while Buffy and Pia supplied the damage. Then the three of us ran an Undaunted daily delve before Buffy and I had to call it a session and log off. When Buffy left, Laurie and Pia were heading for another daily delve.

Fun time! Thanks to those who made it and we missed those who were unable to join us. smile.gif


Thanks! It's good to be back. Haven't played since January 2018. Yes, you read that right. I was able to fix the issue with the audio by repairing the files. Luckily, I downloaded all of the updates on Wednesday, because they took a long time and there is no way I would've been able to play yesterday.

Maybe it was just because I had to relearn the controls again, but I think I had guild chat on. With the exception of hetaerae (Is that haute ecole rider? It's been so long I forget.), I didn't see anybody else talking in chat. Am I missing something that I was supposed to do? I'm not sure what has changed, what I've forgotten how to do, etc.

Unfortunate that I missed the guild meet, but hopefully I will be able to join it next month. redwizardsmile.gif viking.gif emot-ninja1.gif



Welcome back!!!! You have def been missed!!!

"Hetaerae" is "Gosse" - a close friend of Acadian, Haute, and Grits; and a super nice person! (but she is not Haute Ecole Rider; who is also a super nice person!!! )

But you were definitely on Guild Chat, we saw you talking to Hetaerae (but both of you had dropped off before we could get an invite to you to join us; because before we left for the dungeon we looked at the Guild Roster to make sure no one else was on that might want to go).

The Guild Meet is the first Friday of every month; and we always announce it on this thread a few days before the Meet and ask if there is anything special anyone wants to do; so just keep your eyes on this Guild thread to see if the Guild is doing anything.

I've got it set up to send me an email notice anytime someone posts in this thread; that is usually how I remember the Guild Meets, laugh.gif

If anyone has any backup characters that craft and could use ANY of the recipes, furniture plans, or motifs in the Guild Bank = feel free to use those on your alt characters too!

@Raider = you missed the big Event last fall; and @Grits (since you have a new account now too) = Please take as many of the gold containers as you need in that "Consumables" section in the Guild Bank!!! Use them up, please; laugh.gif

Also; if you have any Inn room, apartment or house that needs furniture = check out the stuff in the Guild Bank and see if anything you need is in there!

Our Guild Bank has been hitting the 500 limit several times in the last three months; and we've had to start pulling some items out and destroying them (like twice I've pared down those gold containers) = it would be SO much better to see the stuff used by our members rather than just destroying them like that!

I think it is a real testimony to how wonderfully giving our members are that our Guild Bank gets overfull that way with only 15 of us using it! But for anyone bringing up a new character = that stuff is there to be used by whoever needs it or wants it for their characters; and we could always use more room in there (so please = take what you need!).

Woo!! Congrats on that station! I saw the plan but haven't had a chance to look at it yet. So psyched to get a neat Provisioning station. Thank you, mALX!!



I am just now seeing the note about the bank - I'm sure Valdi can use some of those things. Could someone please give my Evergreen account permission to withdraw from the bank? She can deposit but not withdraw. Thank you!!

For mALX: Buffy did get over to the guild hall to check out the new bbq - it looks great and works fine! goodjob.gif

For Grits: I looked at the guild roster. Looks like haz, mALX and I have some additional permissions. I was able to promote your Evergreen account from 'Acquaintance' to 'Friend'. I figure that should include bank permissions. Enjoy!

Thanks. I could use quite a few of those things. I have that Ebony Flask Inn room but have done nothing with it yet. Seems there is quite a lot of stuff I missed out on, including plenty of time to level up my character.

I would happily pilfer some of the expensive stuff to make some easy gold if it helps out. tongue.gif

I deposited some crafting materials for smithing/clothing/woodworking this past week for anyone who needs or wants it. Cincinnatus (my character, in case a reminder is needed) isn't proficient at those crafting skills. And creating equipment apparently garners very little experience for him, but I'm not entirely sure why is the case. The only one he is decent at is alchemy, which seems to be the easiest crafting skill to level up.

There are a couple of reasons for that. Below CP160, the stuff you're making isn't very valuable (and no writs call for the higher level), so the XP gain isn't much. And ZOS want an incentive to remove generated drop items from the economy, so deconstruction pays better in XP than construction. Giving an incentive to add more would contradict that.

You want to raise crafting on at least one character, so that you can make your own equipment, and upgrade your own drops. The daily writs are a decent source of income, too, as the gold part depends only on the character level, not the skill level. Designating a single crafter for all skills ensures that the character can make furnishings, which use multiple skills, and makes best use of motifs, which cover multiple types of equipment. The latter could be met by having one equipment crafter, and one consumables crafter, but the former can't.

Last time I noticed, Cincinnatus was around CP120, so it won't be long before CP160, and "big kid" equipment. Let us know when you get there, and what type of gear you need (Tank/Healer/DD) and we can help out. Crafted gear is "bind on equip", so we can send you stuff through the mail. Or you can raise your crafting skills and make your own at the guildhall. You have 40 levels in which to choose.

Oh please, take as many as you can for as many characters as you need! Last night I ran out of room and had to mail 25 furniture plans to someone in another guild and tell them to pass them on if they didn't need them!


Also = @Everyone -


About a month or two ago I added a Robust Combat Dummy (6 mil HP). (I can barely budge his health line, and I think he re-heals if you take too long; lol).

Well, so last night I saw that Veteran Trial Boss "Training" dummy that is supposed to have a bunch of fancy features to help you really train your group's Trial skills up. It was on sale (25% off!) and on a limited time offer; not sure if they will bring it back or not. So just in case; I got it. If anyone wants to try it out, It is the huge Iron Atronach - can't miss it, it is on the Right stairs (facing the Guild Hall when you first land). I think it is 30 mil HP.

I temporarily removed the plain Skellie (3 mil HP) because I was in a hurry; but I'll bring him back and put him up where the Precursor is now; and move the Precursor somewhere else - possibly up to the upper level on the side opposite where Buffy's Tent and the horses are.

Well, the stuff is there for using if you need it (not for selling); but if you need some funds to get by through a tough time I'm sure no one would mind if you used a little of the gold in the bank. (5,000 gold is nothing; I usually give that to new Players I run across in the game; so feel free to just get that out of the bank to cover your early game needs).

Also, if you want a Guild Tabard = the Guild Bank pays for Every member's Tabards. They cost 2,000. You pull 2,000 from the Guild Bank; and while standing at the Banker for that you just go to the "Guild Store" on the Banker's drop down list next.

The Tabard has been moved from the front of the Guild store recently; I think it is now under Clothing/Armor; but someone might need to verify that.

Anyway; you buy the Tabard with the money from the Guild Bank. That 2,000 gold automatically goes back into our Guild Bank after your purchase! (So it doesn't cost you anything; and it doesn't cost the Guild anything either).

On building up your skills quickly = deconstruction builds up your crafting skills quicker than anything else in this game. When you go out exploring and find junk armor and weapons, bring them back to town and deconstruct them. Another thing that builds up your crafting skill lines fast is doing "Daily Writs."

You will need to be Certified to do the Daily Writs; the person who trains you is in whatever town is your Alliance's base:

Aldmeri Dominion = Vulkhel Guard in Auridon
Daggerfall Covenant = Daggerfall in Glenumbra
Ebonheart Pact = Davon's Watch in Stonefalls

Certification for Equipment will be a female hanging around the Fighter's Guild near the entrance. A man Certifies for Consumables; he is usually found inside the Mages Guild. Once you reach level 6 they will have a quest marker over their heads.

Thank you very much, Acadian and mALX! Valdi and Anderion scooped up quite a few recipes, and I’ll see if there are any motifs they can use. Neither is a crafter, but some are for low levels (like the festival ones). It’s great to have some variety for their outfits!

Don't forget to grab up as many furniture plans as you need too!

Some info on the new "Training" dummy we got:

The new "Training" dummies they are making now have resistances; debuffs; heal themselves; and from what I read on the ESO forums = actually damage you back so you really have to learn to fight better and train up your sustain better for the real dungeons and Trials.

Someone on the forums said that the Iron Atronach took his health down to 14K pretty quickly because he wasn't paying attention to his own stats; and that he had to run to get out of range of it and heal himself.

This should certainly make practicing on a combat dummy more interesting!

The dummy has 10,190 Spell Resistance and 7,450 Physical Resistance.

It does apply these known debuffs: Major Fracture, Major Breach, Minor Fracture, and Minor Breach; Minor Vulnerability; and possibly others not tested against it yet.

It IS vulnerable to Alkosh; so that is one known weakness.

Combat Metrics isn't tracking the dummies debuffs; so it won't help you learn what the dummy is doing; just watch your health. It will be excellent to teach sustain.


** Also, the Dro Mothra Combat dummy on the Left side = Ghastley and I were toying with it; and I am positive it was re-healing itself. The Dro Mothra should just be 6 Mil HP; but since it self heals it will probably be a LOT tougher than our old plain Robust one. I did not notice my or Ghastley's health going down playing against him, though; so it probably isn't a full training dummy like the Atronach. Maybe it is the first prototype?

Anyway; hope you enjoy them!

Oh, I'm just joking about selling the stuff. I wouldn't ever do that even if I was explicitly told that I could do so. That's just cheap, and certainly rude if I wasn't told I could do that. I'm not hurting for money, but I'm not rich enough to buy a nice-sized house. I only have the Ebony Flask Inn room right now. But I've been making money more quickly recently now that I have hit champion level and getting valuable loot.

As for the tabard, I wish I had thought of that when I bought it. But oh well, it was only 2,000 gold.

Yeah, I just stick to researching and deconstruction. I loot a fair amount of equipment with those 280%+ inspiration bonuses (can't do it for jewelry yet since I don't have the Summerset expansion yet). I do have the goal of researching every trait, which I would probably have gotten by now if I had not taken that year-and-a-half hiatus from the game. And some of the research times (especially woodworking) are so long!

As for crafting writs, I've leveled way past most of the materials that I would be able to use, so it is rare that I see them and it would probably hinder my ability to do the writs. Although I see a decent amount of orichalcum ore still, so I may be able to do writs that have that. But I don't want (nor have the time) to create another character just for crafting.
