    OK, it seems like the best idea is to just crack on with questing, keep picking up resources along the way and then start with the crafting later on?

    That's going to be easier when I start subscribing to ESO Plus shortly, as I'll have the craft bag.

    Can I ask: do the crafting writs time out? In other words, the Enchanting Writ that I picked up last evening,will it just sit there until i do it - or will it eventually 'fail'? (I'm a bit obbessive about keeping my quest log nice and tidy lol)

    You can grind up your crafting if you want, as long as you're willing to buy the needed materials. But, you could feasibly wait until you reach later levels. Potions, food, and drinks can always be purchased at the guild store. There's plenty of options for armor/weapons that drop from mobs/bosses in non-group delves, dungeons, and world bosses. Some areas have better gear for specific character builds than others - but that's to be expected.

    Crafting writs, and all quests for that matter, will never time-out. You can choose to abandon them, however.

    Thanks guys

    The weird thing is I stumbled on a Columbine Flower a few minutes after deciding to give up looking and get on with questing. Go figure!

    I'm going to put crafting on the back burner for now as I'm really just trying out some playstyles at the moment. I'm going to get Morrowind and ESO+ soon and then I'll be starting over with a character that will be based on what I'm now learning.

    OK so I have purchased the Morrowind expansion.

    So far I am really enjoying the vibe of being back in Vvardenfell, but there is one particular thing that is puzzling me. Obviously there is a new tutorial, but at no point does The Prophet show up and up to now - I'm probably 4-5 hours into the content - I've not seen hide nor hair of the old goat.

    Is there something I need to do to trigger him, or should I head over to my starting zone? Because at the moment, and I'm on a brand new character, I don't have access to the main ESO questline.

    Yeah, that puzzled me as well, but I discovered it by accident. If you go back to the starting zone for your alliance (Auridon, Daggerfall, or Davon's Watch), you should see run into a Hooded Figure who tells you to see a mysterious Benefactor who has something valuable for you (or something like that). When you find him . . . .[spoilers]
