Okay, so I contacted ZOS about this problem and 25 days later I'm still getting the run around. They've worn me down to the point where I want confirmation from other players that I'm not crazy and my character is actually bugged out.
Problem is that some days I get VR5 writs, other days they are level 40.
Here is a screen shot they requested showing my alchemy passives, it also shows that I'm being told to craft a 'Solution of Health' which is a level 40 potion.
