A Woodworker in the Elder Scrolls Online collects high quality wood that can be used to craft elegant staves, bows, and shields. Woodworkers use these materials at Woodworking Stations, one of the many mills found in cities and towns throughout Tamriel. Here they can refine raw resources, improve existing items, research various traits, and deconstruct staves and shields they have found throughout their journey.


Skilled Woodworkers are always seeking to learn new techniques to better their skills at the mill. Finding special crafting books is the key to learning new Racial Styles, while researching Traits allows for the creation of higher quality staves and shields.

木工ヒント

  • Deconstructing dropped items or those crafted by others is the best way to gain inspiration and level up
  • Putting points into Wood Extraction will increase your chances to extract special resins, and is therefore highly advisable
  • Finding leather may be harder than cloth, as you must defeat enemies for it.
  • Start with your Research as soon as possible, the best crafted sets require many traits researched per piece.
  • See the Writs page for details on daily changes to get inspiration experience and special resins.

Improving an item with a Resin increases the effective item level by 3. For example, a white quality Oak Bow at level 16 will, once improved with Pitch, have an effective item level of 19. Improving it again with Turpen, will make the effective item level 22. You will notice in the Weapon and Armor tables that the Superior value at level 16 is the same as Normal at level 22. This is important to note, since several Crafted Sets have break points where their bonuses increase based upon "effective level".

  • Note: The effective item level increases by 2 instead of 3 beginning at VR1.

Leveling up Woodworking can be a quick affair if you have the assistance of a fellow crafter.

Deconstruction always grants more inspiration than creation and yields materials. Items made by another player gives the most inspiration, enhanced with higher level items, better item quality, with the presence of traits such as "Intricate" items.

  1. Find a crafting partner who is near your crafting level.
  2. Each partner creates bows for the maximum level as possible in the following progression: 4, 16, 26, 36, 46, Champion: 10, 40, 80, 100
  3. Trade the items to each other.
  4. Deconstruct the bows made by the other person.

You may also craft writs to not only obtain experience, but also gain special resins and other items.
