Is it possible to craft the light armor jerkins instead of robes?

For clothier, I find jerkins in the world, or from quests but I can't see a way to craft them for light armor. Am i restricted to only crafting robes, or is there a way to learn the jerkin version of the armor that you can buy/find

  • Scroll to the right on the armor piece selection.

    Yeah, that's medium armour though :neutral_face: I'm talking about the jerkin version of light armor you can buy from armor vendors or get from quests/drops.

    I don't believe there is a way to craft those. You're not the first person to raise this though; I'd suggest using /feedback in game to request it. It ought to be a simple thing to add.
  • EthoirEthoir ✭✭
    Indeed. Send them a /feedback requesting it. If enough people ask they shouldn't have a problem adding it to the game. I'm not a fan of robes/dresses myself. It looks weird on male characters.

    Darn! :( yeah I wanna have the jerkins instead >.< thanks guys.
  • Have you looked at the different racial styles? pretty sure at least one of them is sleeveless like a jerkin.
    No longer playing ESO.

    See @Mohrdechaia for Imperial Traders Guild invites (the new leader).

    Thanks!
  • NadijehNadijeh ✭✭
    LOL! Rusty blades, I agree.

    @nzbulstone yeah I have, but they are the harder to get ones like daedric & such. I have only found 1 racial book for crafting so far. It would just be nice for there to be a jerkin style version for the racial ones like the ones sold by the armor vendors, or dropped by mobs, etc. The art is in the game for the cultural/racial armors, but we can only buy them & the vendors are overpriced for what you get.
  • I would soo very much appreciate the ability to select either Robe or Jerkin for Light Armor Crafting. Light Armor is what my guy wears, but I don't care for how it looks at all, at least the Chest and Hat Pieces. Since its light armor could we get a selection for Circlet Hat and Jerkin Chest Please?

  • Yes please this would be a great addition. So far I end up wearing way lower level chest pieces on my Sorc because I don't want to wear a dress and I find jerkin drops aren't very common for me.
  • KenjiJUKenjiJU ✭✭✭
    It would be nice to see more shirts or vests or whatever you'd call them. It would make the art for the light pants a bit more useful. A popular option in the meantime is to just throw on a piece of Heavy or two to off-set the armor differences since you don't necessarily need all 7 slots as one type.
  • I don't think you can craft light armor jerkins until later in the game but they are definitely available in quest rewards and loot drops.
  • AngryNordAngryNord ✭✭✭✭✭
    I don't want to wear a dress. Skirt bottom armor ala kilt yes, dress no... just something fundamentally wrong seeing a large fat man running around in a mu mu.

    It's not a dress, it's a robe :P
  • korwinthalekorwinthale ✭✭✭
    Well I wan't a bathrobe to wear around while I smite evil and such.

    Jerkins are, by history, leather tops. You can always enchant the Jerkin to give you the benefits you want so they match your light armor. But I seriously doubt they will break lore or common knowledge to satisfy a couple people. You do have a valid point though, please don't take it wrong. Just don't see it being changed as it's just the way it are...
  • i think it might be a racial thing. im going to look into it my self now that i see that there is a problem with that. but i think it is racial.

    ok So lets call it a shirt :)

    Well, they already did break lore then because you can buy them from vendors, or get them from drops so they exist and already in-game & therefor should be a craftable option imo. I don't care if they call them jerkins or not for the trade skill, even though that's what they're called from the vendors/drops/rewards right now.

    But yeah, it's cloth armor and should have a much broader variety & set of options than there currently are.
  • zariazaria ✭✭✭
    yes, more variations in style, skirts and kilts too would be nice also for medium armor.
    I don't think a short robe would work well as it hides the leg armor anyway.
    But an shirt and various bottoms would solve this.

    I got an item named "kilt of fractured minds" but it was usual pants.

    There are no jerkins among the 10 most common racial styles. I got every single motif, except for the last 4 (?) but everyone of them has dresses instead of jerkins. However, I fancy myself a medium chestpiece and some medium boots to make that up for it. 5 pieces of light and 2 pieces of medium, just for the looks of it. (And ofc. the benefits with having some medium)

    This is a nice idea, but doing that might require quite a bit revamping of the crafting system as is. The only plausible way I can see them doing something like this is by adding another "motif".

    If implemented the questions become: What do you call it? Is it only for cloth, or do you make it available for all crafting options?

    Until this happens the thing to consider is how much is one or two pieces of medium or heavy armor going to negatively affect your build? And is it worth sacrificing that to make your character look the way you want them to.

    Personally I enjoy the robed mage look, but to each their own... although hats would be cool :smiley:

  • Really it feels like my guy is Bruce Cambell playing in some B Class Movie. Running about in a Bathrobe smiting foe's with my glowy stick of Sunburn, all to of course "Save the World", since I'm obviously "The Choosen One", nevermind the thousands of others running about being told the same by the quest NPC's.

    T_T i want this so bad, i was sending feedbacks after every beta and iirc had posted to the forums about it.

    Only reason i even considered doing a 5/2 split was because i didn't want to be limited to robes. Jerkins are in game as seperate items, and should be craftable!

    No revamp needed, I'm certain race already has its own style of jerkin, as I found one and was able to convert to imperial (and no, it didn't turn into a robe).

    I mean yeah they can add leather/heavy robes (heres looking at you Paladin/monk Tier sets from WoW) if they want to keep it even Steven, but i doubt there's as big of a group who wants to be put in a dress vs those who don't want to be forced into them.

    Please try not to think I'm hostile, I'm not trying to be. I just have a hard time wording things with tact >_<.
  • AbeilleAbeille ✭✭✭
    I like the robes, but my Dunmer look simply adorable wearing jerkins instead. I am investing a lot in crafting, everything I am doing in the game is with crafting in mind, and I want to be able to craft a larger variety of equipment. So, yes, I want to be able to craft light armor jerkins!
    All these Altmer NPCs that mock me with their gorgeous black hair... Why :(

    I would like to see jerkin style light armor myself, however, I am using a leather chest piece since I prefer the look and even with it on, I am soft capped on max magicka and magicka regen.

    Edit: Bosmer Light style looks interesting http://eso-fashion.com/bosmer-homespun/

    I'd love to see kilts in the game. Sign me up.
  • I think its absolutely ridiculous that i can buy and loot Jerkins (but so far only up to level 5) but i cant craft them. It seems so ridiculous in-fact that i can't help but wonder if it was something they meant to put into the game, but simply forgot. I really want to see high level jerkins on my nice giant fat argonian templar

    But light jerkin are already in-game. No one is asking for brand new, non-existent armor. We just want the ability to craft what's already available through NPC vendors and quest rewards.
  • NadijehNadijeh ✭✭
    The art is already there so far up to level 20 so...yeah
