Master Writs – The Complete Guide

This guide will tell how to obtain master writs of all types and what you can do to increase your odds of receiving them!


Why should I do Master Writs

Master Writs are known for providing Writ Vouchers. Writ Vouchers are a currency that can be spent at the same merchant we turn the Master Writs in to. This merchant sells things like crafting benches for your house, 30 and 60 item storage containers for your house and so much more!

Not all Master Writs are equal. Some are more costly to make, and some give more writ vouchers as a reward than others. For this reason not all Master Writs are worth doing, especially for jewelry which can be incredibly expensive to craft.


What is a Master Writ?

Master writs the same as regular writs, except they have much more specific requirements that you can choose to accept only after opening / reading the Master Writ from within your inventory. They will often require you to craft very specific items, specifying the trait, set, quality and even style. This means you must have

  • The Trait
    • Use the research tab at the relevant type of bench (ie sword at the blacksmith) to research the trait so that you can apply it to the item when you craft it.
  • The materials necessary to upgrade it to the correct quality
    • these can be found or purchased at a guild trader
  • Set Crafting Station
    • Perhaps the largest hurtle. First you must have learned the number of traits required to craft the set. Some require 5 traits. This means you must have researched 5 traits on every type of item at that bench (blacksmith bench for exmaple). Some require 9, and so on.
    • Once you have learned the required number of traits you may also need access to that specific crafting bench. For instance if it asks you to craft Hunding’s Rage, you will need to find the Hunding’s Rage bench. Set crafting benches have specific locations in various zones throughout Tamriel.
  • The style
    • In order to craft the style requested you must find or purchase that style and learn it for that specific piece of armor. Learn the style for gloves if crafting gloves, etc.
