A Woodworker collects quality wood that can be used to craft elegant staves 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 the journeys.
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.
The woodworking panel comes with 5 tabs:
Refine – refine the raw wood
Creation – craft bows, staves or shields
Deconstruct – destroys the existing weapons, but extracts crafting ingredients in that process
Improvement – with reagents, one can upgrade weapons from normal to legendary. Normal to Fine requires 5 reagents with a 20% chance. Fine to Superior requires 7 reagents (15% per reagent), Superior to Epic 10% and Epic to Legendary just 5%.
Research – learn the traits of a weapon, this feature is similar to deconstruct and has a 6 hour cool down.
