ESOTU Firor Interview: Crafting and Spellcrafting

There was a post on Reddit to an exclusive interview with Matt Firor today. In the interview, they talk about community, roleplaying, pvp, housing, crafting and more.

Do you have any changes coming to crafting?

No, our crafting system is really good, so we’re happy with it.

Okay. I guess the same thing could be said about spell crafting [Is it still on the roadmap?]?

Same thing. With spell crafting we actually got in enough to start seeing how it worked, we didn’t like the design so much and it was going to be more work than we thought to get it to launch so we kind of put it aside to do Thieves Guild, Dark Brotherhood, One Tamriel, housing etc.

ESOTU Housing, Quarter 3?

Update: In a recent interview with IGN, ZOS mentions that housing is to be released in the first quarter of 2017.

Ath4RNEDCDG recent data mining effort seems to add some substance to the speculation that housing will be added to Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited in the third quarter of 2016.

“Three Player Houses in Vvardenfell

Another obvious indicator as to why a major update or two will come before Vvardenfell is the existence of three specific player housing options within Vvardenfell. This in and of itself is an exciting discovery as it means there will most likely be multiple housing opportunities per zone!”
