The Elder Scrolls Online Provisioning Guide

Provisioning offers you a vast number of possible materials, from which you can create eatables. They are further divided into four groups:

  • Primary Ingredients – they are used in the production of all the recipes (from white to purple). Additionally, they are the only group of ingredients in the game that are dependent on the faction you are playing with. Ingredients from this group are the easiest to find.
  • Secondary Ingredients – just like the above group, those ingredients are also used in the production of all the recipes. Ingredients in this group are globally available to all the factions, they each used in the production of a very narrow group of products and they add the first, primary effect to a consumable (for instance, Meal increasing the maximum Health).
  • Blue Recipes Ingredients – as the name suggests, they are used in the production of the blue recipes. They add the secondary, additional effect to the consumable (for instance, Onion adding the property of increased Stamina) – the product will now have 2 stats.
  • Purple Recipes Ingredients – just like the above group, ingredients in this one are used only for the purple recipes. They add the third, final effect (or empower some already present on a meal / drink), meaning that the final product can increase all 3 statistics (Health, Magicka, Stamina).

Below you will find a table representing the list of all the primary ingredients available in the game, level required to use them, the type of a consumable they are used to produce and the faction, to which they are available:

The ingredients from this group serve as the basis of all the products – they alone don’t add any effect on the produced consumable, but they increase the power of the item – for instance, Capon Meat, with Meal, will increase your health by 42, where Guar Eggs with Meal will increase it by 66. The higher the level of the primary ingredient, the stronger the effects of a consumable.

They are used in all the recipes (from white to purple). A thing worth noting is that till 35 level there are 6 ingredients for every level threshold (2 available for every faction).
