What’s Hot: Ascending Tide

ESO Ascending Tide

A New ESO Event – And It’s About Gold & Commerce!!

The upcoming “Zeal of Zenithar” ESO event is set to debut in a few months! Find out what this new event is all about and prepare yourself to make stonks!

The following items are in high demand for the Waking Flame patch:

Armor Sets

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.


With sets like “Robes of Transmutation” and the NEW RoTW set “Rallying Cry” in the game, damage dealers and supports alike are able to provide themselves and their groupmates ample crit resistances. The healing changes have also made it such that healing/cross-healing is incredibly strong. To counter this defensive meta, damage dealers are opting for sets that dish out a lot of up-front burst damage rather than damage-over-time.

Because it is so easy to build for crit resistances with the new sets, a lot of players are stepping away from utilizing impenetrable gear, and are instead looking at other options, such as “well-fitted”. A lot of pvpers are unaware of this or they do not play in optimized groups, so there will still remain a lot of demand for impenetrable pvp gear, but just be aware that selling pvp in other traits for a lot of gold may also be feasible.

Rallying Cry

Rallying Cry is a staple pvp set for supports and dps alike. It is a must-have in serious small-scale group compositions and it carries its weight quite well even in solo pvp scenarios.

Rewards of the worthy coffers
The ideal pieces and traits for this set are: back bar weapons (particularly resto staves, shields & 1hers), and body pieces in impen/well-fitted.

War Maiden

The prices of War Maiden gear is quickly recovering after the recent Morrowind celebration event. Because it is such a strong non-trial gear alternative for dps, its demand remains consistent.

The ideal pieces for this set are: body pieces in divines.

Wretched Vitality

Although this set was introduced back in Deadlands, a lot of players were reluctant to utilize it. There was a lot of discussion concerning whether or not the set was overkill in terms of the amount of stat recovery that it bestowed (and its lack of offensive stats). With more content creators pushing builds with this set in recent times, the sales prices for this set are steadily increasing. Jewelry pieces from this set in particular are selling for substantial amounts of gold.

Craftable (3 traits)
The ideal pieces for this set are: jewelry, medium body pieces (save for light sashes and heavy cuirasses) in impen and well-fitted, stamina weapons in sharpened.

The NEW “Annihilarch’s Chosen” motif style will have a chance to drop from Oblivion portal world events starting May 25th!

An Overlooked ESO Gold Strategy

A lot of players remain largely unaware of the fact that completing treasure maps are a very profitable endeavor! Some treasure maps have a chance to drop leads for ancestral motifs, and some of those ancestral motifs are worth a whole lot of gold! Check out the video below to learn more about this ESO gold-making strategy!

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.

Smoked Bear Haunch & Jewels Of Misrule

The combat changes that have promoted hybridity have subsequently promoted the usage of consumables that complement such a playstyle. Consumables such as Orzorga’s Smoked Bear Haunch & the Jewels of Misrule provide max health stats as well as ample stamina AND magicka recovery. For players that regularly utilize skills that dip into both resources, these consumables are ideal. This is especially the case in PVP scenarios.

Both of these consumables can be crafted if you have learned the appropriate recipe and have the correct consumables. Both recipes can be purchased from other players (on the guild traders). The Jewels of Misrule recipe can drop from the Jester’s Festival reward boxes and the recipe for Orzorga’s Bear Haunch is a reward for completing Orzorga’s questline. She can be found near the Morkuldin Forge in Wrothgar.

Ancient Sandstones

The NEW Fargrave structural furnishings that have a chance to drop from completing Fargrave dailies require heaps of Ancient Sandstones in order to be crafted (usually 20). These Sandstones are not very simple to farm in light of the fact that they are not directly incorporated in any daily reward coffer. The low supply of sandstones and the great demand for them (which is further reinforced through the fact that it costs 20 sandstones a piece to craft a Fargrave structural furnishing) has encouraged the significant increase in the price of this once worthless style material.

Craglorn & Ra Gada Gear
Ancient Sandstones can be found in Craglorn. They have a chance to drop from treasure chests, event reward chests, delve bosses and celestial rifts in the zone. Gear that is of the Ra Gada style may also be deconned for a chance at receiving this style material.

Fargrave Structural Furnishing Plans

The daily world boss and delve quests in Fargrave now have a chance to reward you with Fargrave structural furnishing plans! This makes the Fargrave dailies among the most profitable daily quests in the game.

Fargrave daily quests can be picked up in Fargrave. Daily quest-givers have a light blue glowing quest marker above their heads to indicate that their quests are repeatable and may be shared with others in your group.

Deadlands Treasure Maps & Ancient Daedric Motifs

Despite the fact that this update is a part of the new year-long adventure called “Legacy of the Bretons”, a lot of updates to the Deadlands (last year’s DLC) in particular have been rolled out! The added structural furnishing plans and new daedric-themed motifs have spurred more interest in the thematically-similar Ancient Dadric Style. This motif style can only be acquired through the Deadlands treasure maps.

Deadlands Treasure Map 1 & 2
These treasure maps have a chance to drop from the same sources that any map can from – treasure chests, incursion reward containers, mobs, etc. Upon locating and digging up a Deadlands Treasure map site, you have a chance to receive a lead for an Ancient Daedric motif.

The demand for the Orzorga’s Smoked Bear Haunch consumable continues to drive the demand for (and likewise, the price of) perfect roe.
