The Elder Scrolls Online: Provisioning

SkillsCraftingProvisioningRecipes

Provisioning is a crafting profession in Elder Scrolls Online used to transform provisioning ingredients into cooked food and brewed drinks. It is the equivalent of cooking in Skyrim. Provisioning recipes are broken into two categories, Food Recipes and Beverage Recipes. You must be at a Cooking Fire in order to create any items.

In general, provisioning ingredients can be found by searching sacks, barrels, baskets and crates. Grocers also sell ingredients, but have a limited selection. Various creatures throughout the world can also be hunted for meat.

In the other professions, you are able to make items as soon as you have the materials. However, in Provisioning you must have found and learned a recipe before you are able to create any Food or Drink. Recipes may be found as random drops, especially in containers such as Cupboards and Chests. They may also be bought from Guild Stores or from other players. Completing Provisioning Writs will also give the player a random level specific recipe.

Food items boost at least one of the three stats, Health, Magicka, or Stamina for a period of time. Drinks provide more rapid regeneration of at least one of the three stats over a period of time.

Recipes come in four strengths. Standard Recipes are the weakest, and affect only one stat. Difficult Recipes are intermediate, and affect two stats. Complex Recipes are more powerful, and will affect all three stats. Legendary Recipes require the rarest ingredients and usually provide unique bonuses not found elsewhere.

In addition to food and drinks, the Provisioning skill allows you to craft furnishings for your home.

Stats Affected by Recipes
Standard Recipes:

  • Health: Meat Dishes and Alcoholic Drinks
  • Magicka: Fruit Dishes and Teas
