Introduction

Welcome to the Easy and Fast Farming Build “Speedy G.” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

This build is designed to farm resource nodes or treasure chests. So the focus is not on combat but rather farming materials as fast as possible. You will manage to make about 60-90k Gold per hour (PC EU prices) with this setup if you can efficiently farm. You do not directly farm gold, you do farm materials which you can refine later and harness materials out of it, which you can then sell. You can sell all kinds of materials and make good profit off it. Of course that requires you to know the market prices, on PC you can get Master Merchant which shows you the average price of an item, makes it easier to decide for how much to list something up.

You do not need the perfect gear setup for this build. However, your goal should be to get as much increased speed as possible.

  • Fastest Farming Build
  • Maximum Speed Build
  • Permanent Stealth/sneak
  • Easily avoid Fights
  • Full Medium Armor

How Fast Am I?

Lets analyze all the options you have that could increase your speed. The speed limit is 200%, walking already accounts for 100% speed. Now what can we do to boost our speed. We also should differentiate our speed while walking and while sprinting.

It becomes quite clear that with sprinting we will get to 200% without any problems. However, we want to get close to 200% with our walk speed in stealth/sneak. Therefore, we can simply sneak, be invisible all the time, have unlimited resources due to a neat trick and pretty much have 200% speed without sprint.

Important: We NEED to be a Vampire with this setup to ignore the movement speed penalty in sneak thanks to the Dark Stalker passive.

Walk

  • Jailbreaker = 10% speed (Minor Expedition).
  • Retreating Maneuver = 30% speed for 7 seconds (Major Expedition).
  • Ring of the Wild Hunt = Movement speed buff of 15% in combat and 45% out of combat.
  • Steed Mundus Stone = 15% (with 7 Divine trait)
  • Swift Trait = 6% speed gold quality, 5% speed purple quality.
  • Wind Running Perk Champoin Points (the Lover Tree) = Movement speed buff of 2%.
  • Concealed Weapon = 25% movement speed while in stealth.

Sprint

  • Sprint = 40%
  • Sprint Medium Armor passive Athletics = 1 piece = 3%, 7 pieces = 21%.
  • Coward's Gear = While sprinting you gain 30% speed (Major Expedition).
  • Fiord's Legacy = While sprinting you gain 15% speed (Unique buff).
  • Swift Warrior passive = While sprinting you gain 10% speed (unique buff).

— The Speed Setup —

Important: Be a Vampire for the Dark Stalker passive to remove the speed penalty in sneak!

Now lets calculate what our speed is with the setup and what options you have to diversify the build.

  • 100% from our base speed.
  • 10% from the Jailbreaker set.
  • 15% from the Steed Mundus Stone.
  • 15% from Swift trait on jewelry purple quality

All this combined already gives us a 140% walk speed buff.

This brings us already to 165% speed while we are sneaking.

Now you have three more options:

  • Use Retreating Maneuver to get another 30% speed but the Major Expedition buff only lasts for 7 seconds and you get kicked out of stealth for half a second when activating it.
  • Use Channeled Acceleration to gain 30% speed Major Expedition buff for 12 seconds and it won’t kick you out of stealth.
  • Use Ring of the Wild Hunt which gives you a 45% speed boost outside of combat.

So, without even sprinting we can pretty much reach 200% while in permanent sneak and have unlimited resources thanks to the Vesture of Darloc Brae set and a smaller detection radius.


Resource Management

While sneaking the Vesture of Darloc Brae set will always return stamina and magicka, keeping ups pretty much at a 100% all the time. You can also further use potions to boost your sustain, but the set will be more than enough for all non combat actions.


Farming Setup

Out of combat in sneak. 5x Jailbreaker, 5x Vesture of Darloc Brae, 2x Selene with Tri-Stat food on a Khajiit.

You will find two setups here, one with the Mythic Item and one without. Both will be able to pretty much reach 200% sneak speed.

Gear without Mythic Item

It is not important how you allocate gear, just make sure to have Jailbreaker and Vesture of Darloc Brae so you get the five piece bonus effects.

Gear with Mythic Item

If you are using the Mythic Item setup, you don’t really need the Major Expedition buff skills such as Rapid Maneuver or Channeled Acceleration like you see below in the slot 3 on the front bar, because you are already at the cap with this.

If you do want to farm maximum level materials, you need to make sure to have your crafting maxed out. To get max level materials you need to max out:
