This week’s Ask Us Anything installment with the developers of The Elder Scrolls Online focused on the pretty cool exploration video that was released last week. Questions regarding crafting, gathering, fishing, book collecting, lockpicking and more were answered. We even received some new information on how many tradeskills players will be able to master at a time and how new schematics are learned.
Here are two of the snippets regarding crafting:
“In The Elder Scrolls Online, you can choose from five crafting professions which allow you to make a variety of useful items, enhancements, and equipment. Each of the crafting professions are reminiscent of ones you’ve seen in previous Elder Scrolls games. They are:
- Weaponsmith – Weapons of all types
- Armorsmith – Armors of all types
- Enchantments – Staffs, Jewelry and Glyphs (enchantments)
- Alchemist – Potions
- Provisioner – Food and Drink”
“You can master up to two crafting fields. Our intention is for the specialists to trade with one another (I make you a sword, and you make me a breastplate). That makes for a healthy economy, and gives every crafter the opportunity to find their specialized niche within the market.”
