Question to Zenimax:
Are you able to find every crafting material in the overland world of Tamriel, or are there materials you only find in special dungeons or as drops from certain bosses?
Every material can be found either in barrels, crates, etc. or can be harvested from the resource nodes you find all over the world (as well as in dungeons).
Ask us anything happened again.
So far its looking up for crafters, and not just any crafters, but all crafters who wish to play any play style they want weather it be Solo, Grouping, or Raiding and still have access to ALL top end crafting mats.
Gone are the days where your precious crafting mats are trapped in some raid, or in some dungeon. Now you can have access to it all. Crafting mats have just been announced that you, as a crafter, will have access to all mats in the Overland world (Open World), from solo players to raiders who do crafting.
Every single crafter, solo, group, or raiders, will have equal chances to obtain all crafting materials AND be able to make the best gear in game, provided they put the hard work into doing so.
So far the main features of crafting include:
1. Can make Crafted Legendary Gear for max level. (the highest Quality Rating in game)
2. Can upgrade Drop gear from any source and make it Legendary Quality Rating.
3. Crafting items used to Upgrade items to Legendary Crafting will be "exclusively" and only available to Crafters through "hirelings, extractions, and refinements" meaning all droped in in the entire game will only be upgradeable to the best quality by crafters who are the only ones who have access to these mats.
4. ALL materials you can obtain for crafting are not gated by dungeons/raids/bosses ect. You can find all the mats you need for crafting and making top end game items in the world and through hirelings, extractions, and refinements!
This is an enormous statement from ESO, and one that goes against every major MMO of the past 5+ years, it says they care about EVERY crafter and not just a handful of crafters who have to choose raiding as their only option to obtain best end game gear and materials to make that best end game gear, by not gating materials and allowing Every Crafter reguardless of playstyle to succeed the way THEY want to succeed.
What do you think, has this been a thing you were waiting for in the last past 5 years like myself, I personally can tell ya, a tear comes to my eye just thinking about how important crafters will be in this game. How about you?
