Jewelry Crafting is Garbage!

So....Why the extra refinement step in the jewelry crafting process? Why not make it like all the other crafting professions where you get the upgrade mats in the refinement process instead of more raw mats that you have to refine into the actual upgrade mats themselves. In its current state it takes 10 zircon grains to refine into 1 zircon plating. It then takes 4 zircon platings to upgrade 1 piece of jewelry to epic quality. So 40 Zircon grains (which are a random chance in the refinement process so you might get one and you might not) to upgrade 1 piece of jewelry to epic. I have done a bit of refining these raw mats and the chances of getting zircon grains and chromium grains which are for legendary are not too impressive. I wonder how many millions upon millions of raw mats it will take to upgrade all of the jewelry that I would like to upgrade to epic and then legendary. Not to mention Jewelry Crafting Writs. ZOS, if you're going to put jewelry crafting in the game then please make it obtainable and not Impossible!

    thx for stating the obvious brinks but i agree along with most of the community, i speed leveled 1 toon in the first few days jewelry came out and i regret it. I then leveled all the rest of my 7 toons over time but have yet to actually make any gold jewelry for myself due to the EXTREME cost of mats. The few gold/purple mats i have gotten doing writs on 7 toons every day and deconning jewelry, again, every day, i have sold to help pay for my guild trader. At the rate I get gold mats id still be only half way through golding all my toons.

    My plan was to sell early and wait for the prices to go down like everything always does but In all that time that prices of purple and gold mats have actually gone UP in price so that it costs about 350k gold to improve 1 item from blue to gold. Now imagine making/improving jewelry for 7 toons at that cost. Ill just keep waiting for them to appear in the pvp trader, its not like you get a dps boost from golding jewelry anyways.

    Then why does it really matter? It's an expensive system designed for fully min-maxing your character. It is not needed for any content in the game.

    I took one look at this system when it came out and decided to forget about it. Way too grindy!
    To be honest I'm quickly getting sick of looking at parts of a bloody game, which I pay for every month, that are pretty much unobtainable or inaccessible.
    I'll play the game my way and you play it your way!

    Its abit hard when you just start JC, but if you put some time and effort in it and have multiple maxed JC crafters the gold flows in if you want or use the tempers yourself.

    Dolmens in Al'Akir are a good source for getting jewelry for extraction and you can start there at any level, be sure to take all passives from the JC crafting tree to get max tempers if refining/deconstruction. And dont forget to research all the traits what will help you to get a better chance to get gold temper pieces from master writs. Also a good source for purple tempers are running battlegrounds, they give alot of purple jewelry to deconstruct.

    Last tip is to save all raw materials until the extraction passive is maxed out to get the best results and you dont need to refine anything while leveling JC, and you can start master writs at any level, just do the tier one writs for some extra exp and a guarenteed jewelry piece what can be deconstruction and tier one materials are very cheap on vendors.

    People always try to offer this kind of "reasoning"; but, the truth is that any advantage, however slight, is still an advantage.

    Which is why most people, who want to truly compete in the hardest content (whether PVE, or PVP), will feel obliged (whether by themselves, or by others) to use gold jewellery.

    At that level, any upgrade quickly becomes, more-or-less, compulsory.

    It is this way in every game and always has been.

    I am running 10 Jewellery Daily Writs all but 2 are at max level.

    I get a fair amount of Chromium Grains and Jewellery Maps and quite a lot of Jewellery Writs which I just delete out of hand as they are of no value to me (or anyone else)!

    I am by the above combinations plus regular Mats foraging Runs getting enough Jewellery Mats throughput to keep my mats fairly constant and promoting an item from Blue or Green to Gold about every couple of weeks.

    Nobody ever said this would not be a grind as it is designed to be one.

    I will not spend my hard earned Gold on Jewellery Mats as they are too highly priced due to all the wannabee pressure by the top end players to get to Gold.

    disagree. many players in end-game raiding would do so with purple jewelry. That being said.... almost ALL builds use jewelry that drops from trials, which means there is a way to get it to drop gold, rather than purple.

    Relequen, Siroria, WM, MA, TFS, AY, Olorime, IA, Mending, Alkosh, MD, etc... all can drop in gold.

    Tanks have it the roughest, since Alkosh is really their only set that drops in trials. Ebon, Dragon, Torug's, all are purple (or crafted) (The exception for DPS would be a MS/BSW build)

    Jewellery crafting was a con when it came out the advertisement that we can craft our very own jewellery and upgrade it to the top tier levels and then people realised that the mats and the acquiring of mats was so low that it just wasn’t fun or worth doing

    Then they increased the drop rate of mats and decreased the cost of mats needed for upgrading which was welcome but still time consuming for most

    I currently have 12 toons with 9 at max jewellery level currently but it’s been a long time to get 9 toons to max and I am doing daily writs which at the moment averages 1 gold grains a day some days I get 2 or 3 some days I get none, so it still takes about 40 days to level 1 piece of jewellery

    It is better to get more toons to max as you get more grains but surveys drop rate decreases too

    I have since jewellery crafting started manage to upgrade only one set of jewellery to legendary which just shows how painful it can be and even now I ask why they even bother dropping master writs for legendary jewellery as you just can’t justify doing them currently still

    Anyone that says purple jewellery is fine and you don’t see a difference is talking rubbish and just wants people to stay lower than them so they can have the advantage in PvP and even a spot on a trail team because they have increased stats and can pull an extra couple of k on a stationary dummy that doesn’t fight back

    rubbish. got it! I have 15 toons (12 at max JC)... I have sold over 40 platings already...enough to upgrade 3 + sets... I have also upgraded 4 pieces myself. I have also done 2 400+ voucher JC writs (one for the achievement, one because i needed some quick vouchers) So, you're either very, very, very unlucky, or simply not exaggerating the truth

    you also didn't read above... almost EVERY SINGLE DPS and HEALER set you run in end-game content, drops in GOLD already, (or at least used in combination with body pieces that are much cheaper to upgrade) no need to upgrade!!!! Now, if you can't clear HM craglorns/etc, guess what! you don't need the jewelry!!!! Not having gold jewelry is not the reason you can't clear that content, you just can't do the mechanics.

    You obviously didn’t read my comments properly as I stated it took awhile to get the toons I have to their current level, I never said they where level 50 from day one which you must have been for you to be so abrasive towards another persons view on jewellery crafting, I also never said I spent my game time doing nothing but jewellery

    The ability to not do end game content, I don’t recall saying I am not able to do this at all which you seem to be a pro at with your judgements, I stated it was rubbish about the upgrade to legendary doesn’t give you any boost in stats and that there isn’t a difference

    Oh and congratulations on doing a master writ I wouldn’t waste on them but good on you for doing one I’m not actually impressed but good achievement anyways, the fact that you did those master writs for quick vouchers doesn’t really answer the cost to reward worth of jewellery master writs on a daily basis

    :joy: you are a piece of work aren't you. Insult somebody's opinion, then get angry when they fire back!

    I didn't have my characters at max early on either. I did some work to grind up my main crafter to 50 quickly, but other than that, I just did low level writs, and put the rings I've been getting from playing the game to decon to level up the other characters. Now at 12/15 max (even though I keep a couple only doing level 1 JC writs, because max level aren't worth it)

    I was using the example of doing that writ to show how many platings I've actually gotten.

    The end-game content was a remark as in how to SOURCE the items that everybody is so damn insistent on having to upgrade. My point is... if you can't do the content that drops the gold gear you need... you don't need the gold gear!!!! It wasn't directed at you personally.

    There is an upgrade between purple and gold, obviously. I remember when I bought a Gold Worm Necklace from the golden vendor for my healer. I gained 6 magicka, 1 magicka recovery, and 1 spell damage by changing out 1 piece from purple to gold :joy: That is most certainly NOT going to make the difference in you being able to clear nAA and vAA (or vAA HM) That was the point.

    In all fairness, with the NEW jewelry traits, there is a fairly large difference between purple and gold jewelry (especially on infused). But the original point still stands. There is an IN-GAME, CONTENT based way to get almost ALL of the gear you need for end-game play, at the legendary level (NO UPGRADING!!!!) The Jewelry crafting system is meant as a convenience!!! A very expensive convenience, but a convenience none the less.

    Now, JC as a way to transmute jewelry, to infused, or bloodthirsty, or whatever you want... is simply amazing.

    If they reduced the price on JC mats (by changing drops, etc...) It would destroy one of, if not the only, AP sinks in the game in the golden vendor. I know plenty of PVP people who use the golden to convert their AP to gold when a popular set comes to the vendor.

    The JC writs for a legendary, 9-trait, new jewelry trait is for 461 vouchers... at a cost of about 800-850g per voucher. This is very, very close to what items from the writ voucher vendor sell for in guild traders (750-800g per voucher). So... I didn't make any profit doing it myself... but I didn't lose anything.

    I am also on record here, many, many, many times, that JC MASTER writs are not worth it in most cases (exception above). The voucher values need to be increased. But any other changes do drop rate, materials needed, etc... will ruin an economy for PVP players, for running end-game trials, etc... I'm not willing to risk that, those two facets of the game are already running on fumes. Please don't advocate for taking away one of the few benefits of running PVP (AP to gold through the golden) or running vet trials (gold jewelry to decon for grains to sell) Outside of those, running PVP or vet trials is a gold LOSS to those, between gear, pots, etc... (especially if you are in progression)

    This has got to be the hardest grind in the game. I spent about two days grinding at dolmens to get jewelry. Deconstructed tons of it. And with the crafting experience boost from the Tower champion tree and an experience scroll, I still only managed to advance about 5 levels. The rate of progress is stupidly low. At this rate, by the time I reach level 50 it will have taken two to three weeks of non-stop grinding.

    Zos stated very clearly the did not want the upgrading of jewelry to be as common as everything else which is why it is not like everything else. As simple an answer as can be provided.

    I'm at level 47 in jewelry crafting now. I finally started getting the picture when I only advanced two levels after deconstructing an entire weekend's worth of jewelry from Dolmen grinding.

    If anything they should change the number of platings needed back to double what it is now to upgrade. Then fix writs to reward a large amount.

    Now, there's just enchanting left to master. I'm just one level away. It's almost as bad as jewelry crafting but not quite there.

    I have 5 full 50/50 all crafts avatars. It is actually not that hard. Gets even easier once you have several crafters doing dailies.

    Say NO to Crown Crates. Crown Crates are Loot Boxes. Loot Boxes are gambling. Zenimax makes enough money off us.
    ESO+ is part of the "Games as a service" trend. A trend that needs to die. Subscribe only when you need Crowns for DLC.
    Say no to "radiant" junk quests replacing proper side content and the dumbing down of our favorite franchises.
