ESO Housing

It goes without saying that any adventurer in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a house. After all, one does get tired of the Innkeeper dragging one’s drunken self back to one’s room by the ear each night lecturing the entire time about how clothes aren’t optional in the common areas.

Why Housing?

Be the King / Queen of your own Castle

Housing offers players many benefits and enjoyment.

  1. Free Fast travel by recalling at anytime without a cooldown.
  2. Additional storage with storage chests
  3. Crafting centers with basic or attuned crafting (set) stations.
  4. Combat training centers with target dummies of varying degrees of difficultly simulating pledge bosses, public dungeon bosses, and trial bosses.
  5. Fashion endgame experience by decorating your house and creating creative structures of art.

Getting Your Free Apartments

There is a poster usually the bank of the first starter city in each alliance (Daggerfall, Davon’s Watch, and Vulkhel Guard) and the major cities of each chapter (Vivec City, Alinor, Rimmen, Leyawiin, Gonfalon Bay, etc. ). It will direct you to the nearest Inn.  Once there, there will be the owner of the Inn who will offer you a free room.  Complete the dialog and the Inn room will be yours.

You can’t buy one of the starter Inn rooms in the base game unless you belong to the same faction.  For example, Ebonheart Pact players can get the Ebonheart room but not the one in Vulkhel Guard or Daggerfall. 
You can only have one house free house per character.  Use alts to obtain houses in the other areas.  Otherwise, you can purchase them for a some sum of gold.
