Clockwork City Precursor Maker Locations Guide

Precursor Maker GuideThe Precursor is a target dummy available by completing tasks in Clockwork City. The tasks include doing a few quests and then collecting Precursor’s parts in several awfully named dwemer-themed delves and quest zones in the game.

Quest starts from a bulletin board in the north part of Brass Fortress in clockwork City. Quest is unsurprisingly called “The Precursor“. It requires you to go talk to an NPC named Associate Zanon.

Associate Zanon can be found in his workshop in Reactor District, a western part of Brass Fortress. Location is marked on the map below:

ESO Gold Guide

ESO Gold Guide

Gold in Elder Scrolls Online is often easy to come by, but it’s even easier to spend. Equipment upgrades, motif pages, house furnishing, storage chests, bank and character inventory upgrades, mount training — these are just some of the ways to spend your gold.

More importantly, you can trade gold for Crowns, meaning you can use in-game gold to purchase cosmetic items and account upgrades which are normally sold for real money. All of this makes earning gold in this game very attractive.

Nearly everything you do in ESO will give you gold. Fact is, I never played any game where making gold was this easy. But if you want to take your income to the next level, you will need to engage in farming and trading activities. Some are worth doing more than others, and this ESO gold guide will give you some easy ways to earn it.

Helpful ESO Addons You Should Consider Using

There’s been a lot of controversy around Elder Scrolls Online’s addons recently, and while Zenimax did severely limit some of the potential capabilities addon developers are still hard at work creating helpful ones. The default interface is very minimalistic, somewhat optimized for console gamers and as such has certain downsides. Regardless of your opinions on addons there are a few which are very useful, and here’s some which I’ve been using so far!

For info on how to find and install addons jump to the end of this article.

1. Wykkyd’s Framework

Wykkyds FrameworkWykkyd’s Framework has been extremely helpful for me. It adds a bar showing your character’s level and XP bar, amount of Soul Shards, mount feed timer, clock, zone you’re in, available and used bag space and several other pieces of information which are very useful to see at all times.

While the information it provides can be found otherwise, having it up the entire time has been a real time saver for me. Constantly opening my inventory to see how much space I have left or checking character stats to see experience progress to next level can get tedious after awhile — with Wykkyd’s Framework you can choose to display all or just some of these stats all the time. Not crucial to have by any means, but something that I feel should definitely be on everyone’s to-do list.

2. ZrMiniMap

ZrMiniMapThis is one of those add-ons that’s simply a must-have for anyone who thinks immersion is just another buzzword. I played without a minimap for a couple of days, and as soon as I realized this feature existed I never looked back. It’s a very simple addon that does exactly what you think: adds a small version of your map to a customizable place on your screen. Navigating to quest givers, public dungeons or wayshrines becomes (surprisingly) a lot easier, so ZrMiniMap is one addon you should definitely consider installing.

3. Craft Research Timer

Crafting Research TimersAnother self-explanatory addon. To see research timers normally you’d have to visit a crafting station and check it manually: no more, as Craft Research Timer allows you to view the exact time when your research for Clothing, Blacksmithing or Woodworking will be completed. Since research times will take an enormous amount of time maximizing your research downtime is very important, especially early on when they don’t take too long.

If you’re like me and trying to level all professions, keeping track of research times for 6 or even 9 different traits can get overwhelming, and Craft Research Timer will absolutely help with that. It’s certainly not the prettiest addon and I wouldn’t mind more customization, but it does its job effectively.

4. Foundry Tactical Combat

Foundry Tactical CombatThough not for everyone, Foundry Tactical Combat is incredibly helpful for players who are often grouped or engage in Cyrodiil’s PvP combat. Scrolling combat text and buff tracking are just some of the features of FTC, and for everyone who feels they’re lacking combat information this addon should do the trick.

5. SpamFilter

SpamFilterEveryone who’s completely against addons in ESO, you’re now eating your words! Except for a rudimentary ignore list the developers didn’t seem to implement any kind of spam filters to keep unwanted (and annoying) gold spam messages from the zone chat, and there sure is a lot of it going around in starting zones.

I’m sure anyone will agree that this is one addon you absolutely want to have and keep updated, so be sure to install it and enjoy a spam-free experience.
