Make Gold During XP Events!
A handful of xp-related events (namely, The Witches Festival!) are set to take place during the Waking Flame patch! Learn more about how you can make lots of gold during these 100% xp events!
The following items are in high demand for the Waking Flame 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)
-The no-cp campaign has been changed to also be a no-proc campaign. Meanwhile, the NEW ROTW proc sets that were introduced in this update have been wreaking havoc in the other campaigns. Everyone and their mother’s dog are wearing Dark Convergence it seems.
-Players are also much more tanky now in light of the changes to the battle spirit buff – it now grants more % damage mitigation than usual. This has encouraged seasoned pvpers to step away from slotting Pariah (seeing as high resistances will also make you vulnerable to Hrothgar’s) and opt instead for more offensive setups so as to be able to do more damage against those that are embracing this tanky meta.
The ideal pieces and traits for this set are: weapons (particularly lightning staves), and body pieces in divines.
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.
The ideal pieces for this set are: jewelry, stamina weapons in sharpened (particularly daggers, maces, swords).
Meritorious Service gear can be obtained from the respective gear coffers in the Imperial City. These coffers can be purchased from the IC gear merchant located at your alliance’s sewer base. Ideal pieces for this set are: body pieces (in impenetrable), and weapons (particularly resto staves in powered, shields in impen or sturdy)
NEW ROTW SETS:
Plaguebreak, Dark Convergence, Hrothgar’s
Rewards of the Worthy Coffers
RoTW coffers appear in your mailbox every time you earn 20k through various pvp activities. Ideal pieces for these sets include: body pieces (in impenetrable), weapons (in sharpened).

HUGE Upcoming Changes To RNG?!
Have you heard about what is in store for next patch? You may want to consider not binding specific items this patch to prepare for the potential economic impact that may occur after Waking Flame…
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.
Waking Flame, Sul-Xan and Black-Fin Legion Motifs
The Cauldron, Rockgrove, Leyawiin Delve Dailies (respectively)
Waking Flame motifs have a chance to drop from completing The Cauldron on veteran difficulty, and are guaranteed to drop on the hard mode difficulty. Sul Xan motifs can drop from the weekly trial quest reward coffers that you get from completing Rockgrove. The Black Fin motifs can drop from the daily delve reward coffers that you receive upon completing daily delve quests in Leyawiin.
Perfect Roe has a chance to drop upon filleting fish. Fish can be caught from fishing in different kinds of fishing holes. To be mindful of the fact that certain bait should be used in certain fishing hole types, and that the failure to do so may lead you to reel in trash.
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.
Perfect Roe has experienced a sharp incline in price! If you’re looking for something more relaxing to do on ESO while earning a bit of gold, you may wish to consider fishing in the most profitable spot in the game!
