Master Writs are a special type of Crafting Writ in ESO, which are sometimes received as a reward for completing a normal Daily Writ. Master Writs are typically more difficult to craft, requiring items to be made to a more exact specification and often requiring the use of higher quality materials and recipes.
In the case of Writs that focus on creating weapons and armor, Master Writs require can require the player to craft gear of a certain item set and in a particular style.
Traditionally, this requires players to either spend a lot of time traveling around to the different special crafting stations for the craftable sets, or obtaining many attunable crafting stations and placing them in their home for ease of access.
This latter option takes up a lot of furnishing slots, limiting normal decorating and customization ability in the house that's being used for the attunable crafting stations.
However, it's possible that this situation may be changing later on in 2023.
Possible new Crafting Station coming to ESO
During the Global Reveal for Necrom earlier in the week, a brief mention was made of Zenimax's larger plans for ESO in the future, including the intention to dedicate the Q3 patch to Quality of Life improvements and bug fixes, rather than releasing a new dungeon pack, which had become customary up until this point.
During this discussion, Rich Lambert mentioned the possibility of an "all-in-one attunable crafting station" to improve the quality of life aspect of the game. This could mean one of two things:
- A Crafting Station that can be easily reattuned to a different set at will, without a considerable cost, removing the need to have crafting stations for each set in your house.
- Or a Crafting Station that can do Blacksmithing, Clothing, Woodworking and Jewelry Crafting, attunable in the same way as traditional attunable stations. This would mean you'd still need to have one crafting station for each craftable set, lessening but not removing the inconvenience.
Based on the context of the situation, it seems likely that the second option is what Rich Lambert meant, as if they went with the first one it would effectively make the traditional crafting stations completely obsolete.
While it's not out of the question that a true "all-in-one" crafting station that can create any craftable set would be added, it is also possible that this would be exclusive to the Crown Store, being sold for a considerable amount of Crowns in a similar way to the Banker and Merchant NPCs. However this might be a bit more controversial, as being able to pay for a crafting station that lets you quickly and easily complete Master Writs and other crafting tasks arguably gives you an unfair advantage over players who didn't pay.
It's important to note that this is mostly just speculation - Rich Lambert did not divulge any details about how an all-in-one attunable station might work, or even confirm that they're definitely coming to the game. But he did refer to it as the second example of what ZOS might be planning for Quality of Life changes in Q3, so it's definitely worth watching this space if you spend a lot of your time crafting.
