Make Gold From PVPing This Midyear Mayhem!
The pvp meta has changed and MYM is set to take place during the Blackwood patch! Learn more about all of the different ways to make gold by pvping in ESO!
The following items are in high demand for the Blackwood patch:
The following sets have either just been introduced in the current patch, buffed in the current patch, or they may have replaced other sets that have been nerfed in the current patch. One way or another, they are in-demand now!
Do keep in mind the fact that different player bases across different platforms may respond to these changes differently.
PVP META: (PC/NA)
-Procs have returned to all pvp zones but have experienced some minor changes (they now scale off of your max stats, for example). This pvp meta is similar to that of the meta in Markarth, only players are going to have to look into building into their stats (max mag/stam, spell/weapon damage etc) as opposed to just stacking offensive proc sets.
-Health recovery has been indirectly nerfed in light of the new changes to how the buff, “Battle Spirit”, works. This change has pushed health recovery sets out of the limelight. Instead, sets that provide valuable defensive buffs and sets that provide resistances will be preferred when players are looking to build defensively for pvp.
Mark Of The Pariah
The ideal pieces and traits for this set are: Weapons (particularly shields, 1h weapons, and surprisingly mauls, and inferno staves have sold well on PC NA as well), Body pieces in Impenetrable and Reinforced for the big pieces (Chest, Legs), Jewelry.
Anywhere in Tamriel
Companion gear has a very small chance at dropping from any mob in the game, but you are more likely to receive a higher quality drop from killing bosses (World Bosses, Delve Bosses, Dungeon Bosses etc). Your companion has to be active in order to have a chance at receiving a companion gear drop.
Clever Alch items require 7 traits in order to be crafted. Access crafting stations for Clever Alchemist at your guild house (if available), or in No Shira’s Workshop in Hew’s Bane. Popular traits would be Impenetrable for light armor, Reinforced (on big, heavy pieces like Cuirass and Greaves), Infused or Defensive for backbar weapons (bow, sword and board) and Well Fitted on medium armor pieces. Gold Jewels of this set have previously sold for 2 million gold on PC NA.
Daedric Trickery items require 8 traits to be able to be crafted. Access Daedric Trickery stations at your guild house (if available), or in the Randas Ancestral Tomb in Vvardenfell. Popular traits would be Impenetrable, Reinforced (on big, heavy pieces like Cuirass and Greaves), and even Well Fitted on medium armor pieces.
Diamond’s Victry items require 5 traits to be able to be crafted. Access Diamond’s Victory stations at your guild house (if available), or at the Pentric Run crafting location in Blackwood. Popular traits would be divines body pieces, precise weapons (specifically bows, inferno staves)
A Handful Of New Ways To Make Gold In ESO!
Check out the video that I did before Blackwood launched about all of the new possible gold-making ventures that this new chapter will bring to the game! While I created this video from my time spent on the PTS, all of the topics discussed in the video are still very much relevant now that Blackwood has arrived on the live server!
The NEW Ancestral Akaviri motifs can be acquired from finding a lead from a Blackwood treasure map chest, and then scrying and excavating for it!

Consumables + Materials
The following consumables have either been buffed, have replaced other consumables that have been nerfed, or are in greater demand because of a shift in the meta in the Blackwood patch (or, you know, they are new and shiny and people want them). The materials are popular because they are required to make these consumables that are in-demand, or because they have become more desirable through changes or reinforcements made in Blackwood.
Ivory Brigade Clasps
Leyawiin Daily Quest Rewards + From Deconning Ivory Brigade Gear
Upon completing and handing in a Blackwood daily quest, you will receive a daily reward coffer. Opening these coffers gives you a chance to receive an Ivory Brigade Clasp. You may also deconstruct gear in the Ivory Brigade Style (Frostbite) for a chance at receiving its style material.
Ancestral Akaviri Motifs
Blackwood Treasure Maps
A lead of an Ancestral Akaviri motif has a chance to drop from any Blackwood Treasure Map Chest – not just any chest, only the ones that are associated with treasure maps for the zone! Treasure maps can be found in chests, thieves troves, document satchels, Harrowstorm remains and occasionally from mobs.
Leyawiin and Deadlands Furnishing Plans
Furnishing plans have a chance to drop from any container (backpacks, cupboards, wardrobes, cabinets, nightstands etc) in the zone.
Public Dungeon Fragments:
Scaly Cloth Scraps & Inscribed Shards
Blackwood Public Dungeons: The Silent Halls & Zenithar Abbey
Public Dungeon Fragments have a small chance at dropping when defeating enemies inside public dungeons that are located in zones that were released as chapters.
The NEW Leyawiin and Deadlands Furnishing plans look great and are quite popular among housing enthusiasts. Check out how you can get your hands on them!
