ESO Styles: Where to Find Motifs

Styles are the appearance or look of the Weapons and Armor you are wearing in Elder Scrolls Online. Every Weapon and Armor has a Style and that defines how it will appear. It is purely cosmetic. Gear drops in all different Styles and you can craft Weapons and Armor in various styles.

In order for you to craft a Weapon or Armor in a certain Style you must find or purchase the matching Motif for that Style and read it and have one of the stones needed to make a piece of that type. Motifs are scattered in various containers through out Tamriel and it is more difficult to find some Motifs than others. There are currently far more Styles than Motifs, so it is not possible to craft all the Styles in the game. Below is a list of all the Styles with a couple of pieces of each so you can see what they look like (some Styles only have a couple pieces currently).
