Players can spend their given skill points among multiple skills in order to turn out into general crafters, there is another option available for them too. Players can choose all the points for one profession only; this will help them to be known as Master Crafter. When you reach a point of Master Crafter you can create appropriate items for any crafting skills.

If you want to craft any item, you must be having two basic materials. This step is the beginning point of complications, however it isn't that bad. TESO system requires player to test with different materials, this is the reason behind applying additives on the items. One can use maximum of 3 additives, along with various combinations for each item. This will help you in creating unique items which you can share and trade too. Basically, there are two material slots for crafting interface, one for primary material, other for secondary material; and 3 for additives.
Items that have been looted can be applied with additives to enhance the current stats. You can create armor and weapons in racial style as well. Nonetheless, you can learn different styles as hinted by the TESO devs and apply them to change the look of any item. According to the skills of players, they can craft items in special places too. Weaponsmith and Armorsmith will need forge and anvil, while Provisioners will require campfire or fire.
