With over 2,000 individual decorative and furniture options, plus Furnishing Crafting, you’ll have a lot of options available to make your home truly yours.
In addition to this massive new system, we’ve also added Master Crafting Writs, four new Motifs, and updated several sources of itemization in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City, all of which are detailed below. You’ll also find that we’ve put a focus on improving the balance across all classes and skills, and we look forward to reading your feedback after you’ve had a chance to try everything out.
As always, we’ve made several fixes and improvements to all previously DLC game packs and the base game patch. We can’t wait to hear what you think of our latest update, which is approximately 4.02 GB in size. Thanks, and enjoy!
