Not all Elder Scrolls Online items are created equal. Like most MMORPGs, Elder Scrolls Online allows ESO account holders to customize their items. This customization comes in the form of Traits and Enchantments. These boosts to equipment can make or break a class build on your Elder Scrolls Online account. Here we’ll discuss the basics of the Trait system to help you decide which ones to get.
Special properties for more ESO gold
Put simply, traits are extra properties on items and gear. These often improve the item in a particular way. Items can sometimes be found with a Trait, although this is not always the case. The surefire way to obtain Traits is through crafting. This however can cost a lot of Elder Scrolls Online gold as Traits need to be first researched from existing items.
To research Traits, the crafter first needs to have an item that has the Trait they wish to learn to craft. They then need to research the item through the appropriate crafting station. Clothiers at Clothing stations, Woodworkers at Woodworking stations and Blacksmiths at Blacksmithing stations. Note that each crafting profession has passive skills that affect research times. If you’re planning to make TESO gold from Traits, be sure to invest in these skills.
Weapon traits for your ESO gold hunter
Elder Scrolls Online weapons have Traits specific to them. There are eight of them in total each with a magnitude ranging from Basic to Legendary. Players can choose from Powered, Charged, Precise, Infused, Defending, Training, Sharpened and Weighted Traits. Note that each Trait requires a specific ingredient to obtain them through crafting.
Armor traits for your ESO gold hunter
Elder Scrolls Online armor also get Traits that are unique to them. Similar to weapons, they need certain materials for them to emerge on a crafted item. The traits for armor are Sturdy, Impenetrable, Reinforced, Well-fitted, Training, Infused, Exploration and Divines.
