Research

Badgerthechef
Hey,

Bit Of A Rookie When It Comes To The Depth These Sort Of Games :s , Played Oblivion & Skyrim Before, But Never Used Crafting To Its Full Advantage.

Got A Few Questions;

1. What Is The Research All About?
2. I Have Some Jewels Etc That Add Different "Perks" To My Stuff, How Do I Use These?


I Am A Wood Elf, So I Know I Have To Have Bone To Craft Armour, Weapons Etc ... So What Should I Do With All The Other Materials I Have, Can I Make Other Races Items?

Regards,
The great questions of the day will not be settled by means of speeches and majority decisions but by iron and blood

    Oh yes, there are passives to make research happen faster, plus ESO+ members gets 10% faster research. The skill line passive also allows you to research more items at once.

    Each time you research a trait - the time doubles. So, you researched training on bow and it took 6 hours.. once that is done you could research exploration on bow and it will take 12 hours, or you could research training on resto staff and it will take 6 (if you had never researched anything for resto staff before)

    MissBizz,

    Thank You For That Nugget Of Information.

    When I Go To Research Somethings It Only Comes Up With 1 Thing I Can Research For A Bow (As An Example), It Won't Let Me Research Anything I Want ... If That Makes Any Sense At All?

    Can I Make Other Races Items?
    In order to make such items you first need to have found and used the appropriate motif that teaches your crafter that races' designs, then you can use the ore item to craft that style.

    Note motifs are per-character, so if you have two characters one of which is, say, a Clothier and the other a Blacksmith they would both need to find and use a race's motif to make both types of gear in that style.

    In order to research an item - you must have an item that has that trait already. So what that means is you probably one have one item with a trait on it that you can research. As well - you need to be at the right crafting station (woodworking to research a wood item, clothing to research a med or light armor item)

    You can find traited items from mob loot, or purchase them from guild traders - or maybe from people in your guild.

    As per your example: that must mean you only have 1 bow in your inventory with a trait on it. Go out and find more bows with different traits ;)

    Regards,

    You can only research traits if you have an item with that trait. You cannot just pick a trait and research it. If you have multiple items with different traits, you would have multiple traits to select from to research, i.e. one for every unique trait item you have. These items get consumed when you research them. Hope this is what you are looking for.
