    The player created Molten and White Gold tortes are in the game as a justification for them selling the scroll versions of them in the crown store. It's technically not pay to win if you have a chance (even if it's millions to one) to acquire the necessary items in-game.

    However, as counterpoints: I have found 32 Colovian War Torte recipes lying on the ground since they were first introduced. I learned one, and sold the rest. They have gone a long way towards financing my consumables, armor, housing interests, and whatnot. They aren't hard to find.... if you know what you're doing.

    Alos, ZOS killed the reagent market when they started dropping like candy from the Infinite Archive Archival Sack of Provisions. Mourning Dew and Rubyblossom Extract, once multi-million gold items, now take up 20-30 pages of listings on TTC. So, they are somewhat easier to craft now.

    I'd love to find one, just to actually find one! Back when I was playing/looking, never happened.

    It does boost rank. Rank progress always goes hand and hand with skill line progress.

    Yes, it's 64 million AP to get to Alliance Rank 50 (Grand Overlord), but only about 42 million if you have the 50% tortes active at all times.

    Totally agree with you. This torte recipe and rewards are the ultimate grind ordeal and lesser results.

    Actually, the Morrowind Banner of the 6th House has held that title for the seven years that it's been in the game. But ZOS essentially threw everyone under the bus who's ever spent time farming it, or spent millions of gold to acquire this rare treasure when they made it a common drop with Update 42.

    It takes slightly less than 25 million AP if you use White Gold War Tortes and the Mora's Whispers mythic!

    Well, sure, if you want to spend hundreds of millions on tortes and sacrifice a mythic, arena, or monster set that can actually help you earn AP by being a better fighter for a few months or years. :)

    (for reference, I used roughly 60 White Gold War Tortes to go from level 14 to 50 during the last Whitestrake's Event)

    You went from Alliance Rank 14 to Grand Overlord (AR 50) in 12 days?

    Ok so this is the reward to having / consuming the diff War Torte's
    Clovian - 50% Boost AVA for 30 Minutes
    Molten - 100% Boost Ava for 30 Minutes
    White Gold - 150% Boost AVA boost for 30 minutes

    BUT the COST to make them is just plain I N S A N E, fist off you need to Fine the Clovian War Torte Recipe Extremely Rare in Resource Nod Location in CYrodil - ok then you read to learn how to make a Clvian War Torte . . . .

    NOW you can spend 500,000 tel var to buy a Dissertation to read to Improve the Clovian War Torte RECIPIE (you have ot have another recipe) to learn how to make the Molten War Tortes. Now you know how to make a Molten War Torte - BUT you need 40 - (yes destroy 40 Clovian War Tortes) and another ingredient that take another 100K tel var to make ONE Molten War Torte. Soooo just to make one Molten War torte you hade to find 2 Clovian War Torte Recipies and spend 500K tel var just to learn how to make them. Then use 40 Clovian War Torts and spend another 100K tel var for another ingredient to make a Molten War Torte ***** you give up 20 hours of 50% to get 30 Minutes of 100% who is that nutz.


    WHITE GOLD WAR TORTE - even more insane- you need to get lucky like no one ever does and get tis recipe from doing INSANE Battlegrounds. if for some you do get this lucky you now need to also have the RECIPEI for Molten War Torte (THE RECIPEI) avail to read sooo now you need another Clovian War Torte Recipes, ANOTHER 500K TelVar Dissertation, to get another Molten War Torte Recipie and then leqrn it up to White Gold - - - - -

    Now you need One Molten War Torte (40 Clovian War Tortes, and a 100K tel Var Ingredient) and now another extremely E X T R E E M L Y rare resource from CYrodil - to make a White Gold War Torte = 150% Boost for 30 Minutes which you still lose because you gave up 20 hours at 50% to get? No to include the time spent trying to get the other resources needed to get to this level.


    Clovian War Torte is ok as is 50% for 30 minutes.
    Molten War torte should be 1000% for 30 minutes OR 100 % for at least 24 hours
    Now if you are luck enough to have obtained and willing to spend all you have earned to have a White Gold War Torte in your inv then you SHOULD GET - 1000% boost for 24 hours no matter what.


    The bonus for being and Overlord are north offsetting in any way PvP wise just aesthetics. Soo what is the loss.

    Trade off is NOT worth time / effort / COST for Clovian to Molten in any way shape or form. White Gold, if you have played enough to find these items then Reward such play.

    Agreed. Anything other than the basic torte is so insanely expensive to craft it will never be worth it. This is just one of many examples of how badly ZOS misses the mark with balancing things these days.

    32???? I have visited every website I could find about farming these, and got some tips from a player in my guild who farms them, and I have yet to find one. I take time just to farm them but I am also in Cyrodiil just about every day doing PvP activities. I must have some epically bad rng.

    Well, I've spent a lot of time farming them. And with experience comes insight. So there are some things I may know that aren't common knowledge.

    I'll give you one tip. People who ride around looking for the recipes miss a large percentage of them. The reason being that the books are not very tall. And when ZOS originally laid out the spawn points for resource nodes, they apparently used the taller items. There are certain flowers and mushrooms that are partially buried underground.... and the books work like that, too. Many of the ones I've found were very hard to see. In fact, even with Keen Eye 3 in all types of nodes, some of the Lost Imperial Notes could only be noticed by just a few wispy strands poking out of the ground, meaning, too low for any visible green glow. And more than one has been completely buried. I would not have known one was even there had I not moused over the known location, and seen the name appear on my screen.

    So your best chance to find them is to be on foot, and looking carefully at all the spawn locations. In fact, I've seen players ride right past them before, because they weren't very obvious. Never take for granted that they can all be seen from 50 yards away.


    Yeah, I go to one spot the guildie recommended and farm the nodes on foot. I guess the idea is that the recipe would come to you and respawn there. Maybe that is not good, but traveling the whole zone did not work either.

    I do not have keen eye on my main toon. I was hoping the bright green glow of the book would be enough, and from what I have seen in snapshots it seemed sufficient.

    I also assumed that lag would keep me from seeing anything when riding, the draw distance nowadays is so short.
