How do you Slay Dragons?

Dragon spawn continuously throughout the day in Eslweyre and you will be rewarded handsomely if you manaage to slay one. Not only do Dragons drop great loot that you can immediately sell to merchants and items to deconstruct or research, they also provide incredibly expensive new furnishing pieces and potential motifs to those willing to grind. Check out our How to Slay a Dragon Guide to learn how this can be accomplished.

What are Furnishing Items?

When you come across a furnishing item that has the name 'Eslweyr' on it you should keep it and sell it as these can fetch upwards of hundreds of thousands of gold if rare enough.

What are Motif Books?

Keep an eye out for any motifs when grinding for gold in Elsweyr, these are a series of books that teach different crafting styles. They will ebe either purple or gold if you find an entire motif book and can be sold for a huge amount of gold. Selling these is one of the fastest ways in the game to get a lot of gold quickly.
