ESOTU Housing: Realistic Goals for Day 1

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

If you are excited about housing as much as I am, I suggest checking out the article Homestead: Furnishing Day 1” on Tamrielfoundry.com.  It talks about the logisitics of obtaining furniture crafting plans (1100) and harvesting the furniture materials. I have to agree, we are in for a grind.

The article quotes a source at Zenimax that recipe sourcing is influenced by the region they are found.  There was a similar approach when provisioning recipes were introduced. I recall watching Icy’s YouTube video on housing and how she was disappointed that she didn’t find any Redguard themed recipes in the Redguard zone she was farming the recipes in.

The element of housing that was missed in the article was the ability to get recipes and items from Fishing.  Overall, it’s a great read.

ESOTU ESO’s Got Personality

Say What?

Overheard in Tamriel

Over the past year, the Elder Scrolls Online has included a few personalities that effect your characters idling fidgets, emotes, walk, and / or all of the above.  For the most part, they have been an interesting addition to the game. However, I think the thief personality could have been quite a bit better given its crown price.

ZOS created a forum to discuss players thoughts on personalities, including what new personalities they would like to see. Some of the suggestions are quite intriguing like the Bard or Jester.
