As an Enchanter, You will need to gather runes that can be found all over Tamriel! When you craft glyphs, you “learn” the translation of the runes used. These translations will define the effects the rune will have in a glyph. You can also extract Runes from Glyphs by opening the Extraction tab at an enchanting table. Chose a Glyph from your Inventory to perform the extraction. Performing the extraction process will destroy the Glyph. Enchanters create Glyphs by combining runes of three different types: Potency, Aspect and Essence.

Finding enough aspect stones is not easy, as you know. Still there are a few ways to level enchanting more effectively…


  • Potency (Purple Square) determines required level & strength of Glyph

  • Aspect (Green Triangle) will determine its quality

  • Essence (Amber Circle) will determine magical effect

Guides For Enchanting:

Enchanting Profitability: High

Getting Started Early:

Aspect Improvement and Potency Improvement which are the only required skills to raise Enchanting to max level and create all of the glyphs. There are many other skills that improve and enhance the profession as well.
If you would like to start crafting as soon as possible while leveling, here are some must-have skills: After taking your initial survival skills, place points into the following to get started. Keep putting points into these two skills in order as you level Enchanting, together with your regular combat skills – 1/3 for each:

Keen EyeKeen Eye: 1/3 – To start seeing runestones better


HirelingHireling: 1/3 – To get Enchanting stuff sent to your mail.


Runestones are used in the creation of glyphs and can be found in all zones in Tamriel and seem to be randomly looted! Runestones nodes in the world will have a generic title, such as “Potency Rune” and the rune is randomly generated of that rune type when you gather. This system dictates that runes are not zone specific, and you will find runes higher or lower than your crafting level randomly.

Finding Enchanting Tables:

Enchanting Tables are in towns and cities are identified by a gem symbol on flags outside the stations and on the map. There is a table in Khenarthi’s Roost – Mistral  Click Here for crafting stations.

Glyph Discovery, Creation and Translation:

runesCreating Glyphs requires one of each rune type, potency, essence, and aspect to be combined together. These runes need to be translated to discover their effects, and there are many combinations possible. The individual runes are what control level, quality, stats and potency of the glyphs. As you combine runes you will translate their language into something you can understand. Once you have translated a rune, you know that word permanently. There are many runes and translations to discover! You also receive inspiration for translating runes. Extracting glyphs will give you materials to create new glyphs! Extracting glyphs will not always give you the exact same materials used in their creation, however you can place points into skills that will increase the chance to extract these materials.

Leveling Enchanting:

Best Tip for leveling Enchanting is to trade glyphs with other players you trust. Glyphs made with Rekuta give the most exp but if you want to save money you should each make lots of Jejota and Denata glyphs your level. Thats the best way of leveling Enchanting right now since at the high levels, extracting regular Glyphs is very slow. FULL guides on Full Leveling Guide – Enchanting

IMPORTANT ESO ENCHANTING GUIDE TIPS: Stick with it. Even though it is a really slow leveling process, the glyphs that you make are level locked, meaning you can only use them when you reach a certain level. For example, the first potency rune, Jora, is used for glyphs levels 1-10. Porade, the second potency rune, is level 5-15. You cannot use a glyph created with the Porade rune unless you are at least level 5. So, even if your enchanting level is low, your character level can be higher.

MORE IMPORTANT ESO ENCHANTING TIPS: The Potency Improvement passives, which are the required passives to create better runes, are set at low levels. For example, you only need to have level 10 enchanting to make runes for the levels up to 35! It’s fine if your enchanting level is only 1/3 of your character level, because that’s all you need. Also, after Potency Improvement rank III, there is no level requirement for rank IV other than having rank III, and so on (so at enchanting level 10, you can create the best glyphs in the game)! You’re at enchanting level 8, so you can make glyphs for characters up to level 25!

  • If you need runestones, you can either buy them fairly cheap from merchants, or you can spend a little extra to get a couple of glyphs, the deconstruct those glyphs
  • If you have extra runes and you buy the type that you are missing (like aspect runes), you can use runes you already have to make glyphs, and sell those glyphs to the merchant to purchase more runes!
  • If you buy glyphs, after you deconstruct them you can always re-make them and sell them back, using that gold (plus some extra) to buy more glyphs.
