Craft Tree CP Guide

by Hack The Minotaur

The Craft Constellation in The Elder Scrolls Online

The Craft Tree in The Elder Scrolls Online is focused on crafting and utility-centered passives including improved pickpocketing, gold gained, movement speed, stealth, resource returns from crafting nodes and more.

The left side of the Craft constellation is centered around thieving and stealth while the right side focuses on fishing, provisioning and housing. The center stars tend to focus on Crafting and resource gathering.

There are no sub-constellations currently in the Craft tree.


Craft Tree Champion Point Stars

The Craft Tree consists of 28 Champion Point Stars that can provide bonus effects to your character build in ESO. Some stars grant their bonus passively, while other stars must be Slotted on your Champion Point bar in order to take effect. Stars must be unlocked with Champion Points before you can use them.

For a detailed breakdown on how Champion Points work in The Elder Scrolls Online, refer to our Complete Champion Point Guide.
