Alchemy is a great choice for any crafter in Elder Scrolls Online. For those that just began their journey through alchemy you might notice that each plant ingredient has four traits that define what kind of potion you can create by combining different ingredients. It can be a very big endeavor to try and find all the traits on your own. What all you should know is that you can right click a new plant in your inventory and click on Use to learn the first trait of that ingredient. This will also give you a small amount of alchemy experience. For the other three traits you can try combining plants until you discover them all.
To spare you the time and material expense we have done the work for you and you can find bellow the list of all alchemy reagents with all traits discovered. There is also a small tool (drop down menu above the list of ingredients) to help you determine which plants you can combine to get a certain effect in your potion. Just select a trait from a drop down bellow and the list of plants will show only those with that trait.

ESO Enchanter has an important role to discover Runes and use them to create Glyphs which add enchantments to weapons, armor, and jewelry. Once applied, Glyphs increase items efficacy in combination with the traits added by blacksmiths, clothiers and woodworkers.
How to create a Glyph?
Before you can create a Glyph, you have to collect Runestones. There are 3 different types of runestones and you need one of each type to create a glyph. Once you collect Runestones from rune-nodes, go to Enchanting Table and select Creation tab, then select the runestone of each type by double clicking it, and it will appear in the appropriate “rune phrase” slot. When all 3 slots at the bottom of the screen are filled you can create a Glyph. When a glyph is created, a translation will be revealed for each of the runes used in process.
If you have some glyphs that you can’t use or sell, just extract them, and you’ll get back some of the runes you used to create them. Both Creating and Extracting glyphs processes will contribute in leveling up Enchanting profession.

Crafting nowadays is a common feature of an MMO game, but beauty of the crafting system implemented in TESO comes from the fact that it’s exactly what would you expect from an Elder Scrolls game which perfected this part of the gameplay. You’ll find materials to use in crafting professions throughout the world. In cities and other settlements, you’ll find crafting materials in barrels, crates, and other containers. Plants, minerals, mushrooms, and many other materials can be gathered in the wild. If you approach a harvestable resource, you can press “E” to gather it.

- Alchemy – Collect plants, experiment with Reagents to create Potions
- Blacksmithing – Collect ore, create Items using Metal Materials (Metal Weapons and Heavy Armor)
- Clothing – Collect plants and hides, create Items using Cloth and Leather Materials (Light and Medium Armor)
- Enchanting – Discover Runes and use them to create Glyphs which add enchantments to weapons, armor, and jewelry
