Updated: Flames of Ambition DLC, Blackwood Chapter
Type: Solo Farming
Buildname: Speedy G.

Table of Contents

Welcome to the ESO Farming Build “Speedy G.”. Unlimited stealth cloak mode, unlimited resources and all that at maximum speed. The ESO Farming Build is designed to farm resource nodes or treasure chests. The build isn’t optimized for combat but rather for 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.

With this ESO Farming Build you don’t directly farm gold, you farm materials which you can refine later and harness materials out of it, which you then can 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 don’t need a perfect gear setup for this build. Of course if you have the optimal build like listed here, then you will be able to farm things faster which will make you more gold in the end.

  • 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 in for the ESO Farming Build. 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 while sprinting we will get to 200% without any problems. However, we want to get close to 200% with our walk speed in stealth/sneak, and that is what the ESO Farming Build is all about. Therefore, we can sneak all the time, be invisible all the time and have unlimited resources due to a neat trick and pretty much have 200% speed without sprinting. To showcase this, you can watch the Speedy G Video.

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 Speed

Sprint Speed

  • Sprint = 40%
  • Sprint Medium Armor passive Athletics = 1 piece = 3%, 7 pieces = 21%.
  • Coward’s Gear set = While sprinting you gain 30% speed (Major Expedition).
  • Fiord’s Legacy set = While sprinting you gain 15% speed (Unique buff).
  • Swift Warrior Orc 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.
  • 15% 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 145% walk speed buff.

This brings us already to 170% 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.
  • Spend points in the Steed’s Blessing Perk in the Champion Points tree to gain up to 20% speed 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.


ESO Farming Build Setup

Lets take a look at the overall ESO Farming Build setup. To optimize the Farming Build you want to get the same gear setup like shown below. There are two setups, one without a Mythic item and one with a Mythic item. Both setups can reach the maximum speed limit, but with the Mythic item setup it is easier to reach the limit.

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.

Champion Points for the ESO Farming Build

Below you can find the Champion Points setup for this build. Work your way from top to bottom of the list depending on how many Champion Points you already have. For more information on Champion Points, please visit the Champion Points Overview Page on ESO-Hub.com.

This build works well without any Champion Points. The Champion Point allocation below is just the extra cherry on top.

Important Info for the ESO Farming Build

In this section of the ESO Farming Build we are going to take a look at things like buff-food, mundus stone, race, potions, passives and attributes.

Longfin Pasty With Melon Sauce
(Max Health, Max Stamina, Max Magicka)

Food buff Longfin pasty with Melom Sauce

Kahjiit (Recommended)
Orc
Wood Elf
Redguard
Imperial
Nord
Any Race

Potions

Use whatever potions you have available, we do have enough sustain without potions in most scenarios.

Passives for the ESO Farming Build

The ESO Farming Build utilizes the follow passives. However, you can always add more passives to the list in case you got some other skill lines that you want to also use.

You could get more passives such as Fighters Guild etc if you want, but for farming alone it isn’t really necessary.

Crafting Passives

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

If you want to know how to level up all your crafting skill lines I do recommend checking out the Crafting Guides on my website, which explain everything in detail.

Attributes

All into Stamina


Resource Management for the ESO Farming Build

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.
