    Need to buy one with gold from someone that can make it or in the traders...

    OR

    purchase a house... then go into the the housing editor... then find the purchase tab and scroll down to buy a dummy with crowns.

    A lot of guilds provide dummies in their "guildhalls", or you could ask your friends if someone has one you could practice on. I'm a bum so I occupy my friend's house and practice there :D

    If you want one of your own, yeah, need a house and to buy it from master writ merchant/people who have bought it from master writ merchant, pretty pricey.

    Can I follow up on this... I must be missing something as I'm attempting to buy one from a guild trader but there seems no easy way to find which category to search under...

    Am I right in thinking you need to obtain a 'praxis' in order to 'craft' a target dummy?

    When in the UI for a guild trader, exactly what category do I search under?

    It's quite confusing because if I type in 'Target' on the 'search' bar it will bring up many results (target skeletons, humanoids, dwarven thingys etc...) but if I then hit 'R' to search (I'm on PC by the way!) the results are empty.

    Also - these seem incredibly difficult or expensive to come by... is there no in-game cheap or free dummy that I can get access to?

    Me and my dad play this game a lot; if I got a dummy, would we BOTH be able to practice against it?

    Finally... any recommendations on good training dummies for beginners (dummies for dummies!!!)?

    Thank you!

    There is the quest for The Precursor..
    A very simple target dummy.
    You have to collect pieces as part of a quest. If I'm not mistaken you can find the quest somewhere in Clockwork City.
    It is a very simple target dummy though.
    A master crafter can also craft a target dummy for you, though this can be costly depending on how which varient you desire.

    Target dummies are located under furnishings if you are looking at a guild trainer.

    If you are looking for the recipe to create a dummy, it will be listed under consumables.

    Like the above poster mentioned, if you own the Clockwork City DLC, you can do a quest to obtain a very low healtg target dummy (less than 1mil).

    And yes, multiple people can practice on the same dummy!

    If you are very set on this, I recommend doing master writs in order to exchange vouchers for the recipe to create a dummy. Note, this will cost very expensive materials to make, so you will want to also spend some time gathering to find them (aetherial dust). I think diminished aetherial dust can also be exchange for writ vouchers.

    Also I need someone to fact check - has the luxury vendor ever has a dummy?

    many guilds have someone with one or more...
    Even 2 trade guilds ( I'm in) offer access to 6 places with some...

    I have a number of target dummies in my Guild House (including an Iron Atronach) but I'm on xbox/EU sadly. Otherwise I would have gladly offered you option.

    The Precursor does have some amusing comments though whereas no other target dummy does.

    I'd recommend a walkthrough if you have limited inventory though. I stumbled across my first piece only to realise it takes up inventory space and blundered through trying to find the pieces without a walkthrough. It was a tedious process and was long before I realised the value of having a merchant and banker lol

    But it is what it is, a target dummy nonetheless.

    Good luck

    if you are at PC EU i can offer you my home, there are two 3 mio dummies next to each other, so you and your dad can parse side by side. I also have a raid dummy 21 mio, which you could have a go at together.

    Check in guild information, many has them in guild halls. Yes simply ask in guild works.
    Grinding just make you go in circles.

    If inventory space is an issue, you can hand in each peice as you collect it, just takes a bit of time to get to the quest giver each time ...

    I found The Precursor right in the beginning of my 'new to eso' experience....

    2 years later and 99% PVE map completion bar trials.... . Had I known then what I know now lol

    But you are right, you can hand them in individually... I think I only realised this on my 10 or 11th piece.
    All the resources I agonised over deleting that I could have sold for gold, not realising that one day I'd be spending a million a week on attunable crating tables for my Guild House...

    Those were the days lmao begrudging having to delete a white item worth 26 gold because it 'all adds up'

    If your guild doesnt have one, just ask someone to craft one for you. Blueprint is quite expensive in vouchers.
    3 mil dummy need:
    1 Kuta
    15 Mundane Rune
    13 Alchemical Resin
    206 Bone (Woodelf style mat)
    11 Decorative Wax
    1 Animus Stone (also for vouchers, but much cheaper than praxis)

    Precursor has too little hp to practice anything serious, but its good to practice crystal smashing in CR, charging your ult before fight or general skill canceling.
    If you have Greymoor you can grind Stone Husk parts in Labyrinthian, but their drop chance is awful and you need 50 of them. They grant 6mil dummy.

    You can buy it from guild traders, get it yourself from master writ voucher, crown store through furniture tab (have to be in a house), or the precursor from Clockwork City.

    A reason you might not see the items for guild traders is because they're not all that commonly sold, and there's no worldwide auction house so you'd have to shop around.

    Also for PC there's TTC you can try.
