    Though I know there have been issues surrounding the weapon swap, but has there ever been any consideration of adding a 3rd slot to cycle to? This would come in handy for those that use different melee/staff/bows
    It wouldn't really work as a toggle though. It's hard enough to switch weapons sometimes when it doesn't seem to want to respond, it would be worse if I had to cycle through an extra weapon to get the one I want.

    My question is in regard to the justice system.

    Will there be any badass, powerful NPCs that are likely to curbstomp you if you try to steal from or kill them. I would like to see some "Champion Level" NPCs that present significant challenge to kill or steal from.

    Guards are unkillable. They can kill you but you can only flee from them.
    That is good, but I am more talking about a Champion Level NPC that would be really difficult to kill. I'd like to see some "Elite"/"Champion" NPCs dropping ultimates, using dark cloak/bolt esca-e to escape, and basically making themselves more than just fodder to be murdered.
    I'm pretty sure guards will be killable, they just get a boss health bar and there will probably be an infinite number of them.

    Nope, guards are unkillable.
    Wait...What?! They are making the guards unkillable? Who's idea was that?

    The guards maybe, I'm sure they are going to have their hands full, maybe they feel dying as well is too much :sunglasses:

    To be serious though, the idea is stealth, if you get caught you can run or surrender, fighting them should never be an option. If you aren't stealthy enough, try something else. It's stealth for thieving not fighting.

    I'd like to ask a constructive question about Nightblades and Stealth!

    Currently, Stealth as a function of combat seems to not be very well utilized or fleshed out. There aren't many abilities that actually make use of stealth, and the one ability that DOES isn't effective against really anything outside of overland PVE Content. Are there any plans to flesh out Stealth to add more abilities that take advantage of it.

    Some things that come to mind when I think of cool stealth abilities are: bonus damage on certain abilities while stealthed, a debuff that can only be applied from stealth, a passive that applies stealth off combat effects to allow for neat combos, etc.

    Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to ask questions! I hope that I get to hear this one answered in the next ESO Live! :)

    Power level to CP160 in a week:
    Where is the end game? You just played it.
    Why don't I have 300+ skill points? Because you skipped content along the way.

    I would like to ask about the player housing that was mentioned around a month after release. I understood that it was meant to be an addition to the game after a year or so and there has been no word on whether this feature was intended to be added soon or not. I had been eagerly awaiting to see if there would be a change in adding this. Will we be hearing about housing features or was the mention a pipe dream?

    Will ZOS ever implement a solution so that factions can interact in the PvE world from Veteran levels onwards?

    I can understand the reason for that during the first 50 levels, but it is limiting for Veteran levels.

    You've clearly been extremely responsive in myriad ways. Thank you.

    For a very long time we have been in need of a more accurate and flexible system of character customization. It does affect female "avatars" more than male, but since both genders play as females, I believe it's still what ZOS would consider a valid issue.

    Question: When can we expect character creation screen and in-game appearance of "avatars" to match, and in lieu of that when can we expect a preview vehicle or time period that allows us to fix appearance flaws that are not our doing but a result of the above-mentioned discrepancy--one which does not count against our one try per 24 hours?

    Suggestions follow...


    That first handful of chances goes fast when such huge differences exist, such as (but absolutely not limited to) ear and hair co-mingling in distracting and physically impossible ways when using the loose, unadorned long hair with a female Bosmer. In character creation just the ear tips show. In-game those perfect ears and hair get all mangled up in a physically impossible and distracting way below the ear tips, no matter what you do, and it's particularly bothersome because the hair is thinner on the side where it should be thicker, which appears to cause the problem in the first place!

    Short-term Fix A: Make that hairstyle a fraction thicker on the avatar's right side for all races. You fixed helmet clipping for other races. Why not this, which can be a minor change with major impact?

    Short-term Fix B: Make the first 3 minutes in Coldharbour a "blackout" period during which no one can send or receive any kind of communication, and let players use that brief period of time to review their "avatar" as actually rendered in-game before it counts against their one tweak per (allegedly) 24 hours (which is oft-times considerably longer).

    Obviously the ideal situation would be to create and maintain a fully functional and robust character creation system that allows a preview to ascertain in-game appearance and a means to take the weight of preventing server overload and black market activities/botting off the shoulders of paying subscribers.

    The current limits and flaws are absolutely suffocating, and as much as I love the game, the lore, the improvements in the books (the spelling and grammar are worlds better than in the past!) and the overall playability, I cannot fully enjoy ESO in a sub-par "avatar". I have tried, mightily and repeatedly. If I have to do those beginning levels many more times I'm very likely to lose my mind and my own very real hair.

    To the pre-pubescent "girls are icky and someone has to force me to brush my teeth when they start growing fuzz" kids whose brains, based on forum commentary and zone chat, have not yet physically or emotionally matured enough to even understand the concept of empathy (it happens somewhere around age 12 but varies) it's not a big deal...but we ARE talking about the vehicles through which we experience the entire game.

    I have 2 open ended questions and one single answer question. If you can only answer one please chose the final question.
    • What is your Design Vision for the following classes.
      • Sorcerer
      • Templar
      • Dragon Knight
      • Night Blade
    • Some addons seem to be necessary components for smooth, nonfrustrating gameplay. Examples include guild search, buff/debuff/taunt trackers, item savers, armor set and skill set macros, and inventory management and navigation. Do you have any plans to update the native UI to include more common and necessary MMO features?
    • What is your vision for Cyrodiil regarding each individual class and the role that they play in group PvP? Do you see the classes as simply different ways to fulfill the same roles, or do you see the classes as more specialized for fulfilling certain roles in PvP. Another way to think of this question is this. If you had to design an animated game trailer show casing the four classes during a keep siege and defense what would we see in that video for each class?

    1. How are current VR ranked items like weapons and armor going to be treated when the champion system comes. What will be the difference between having a VR1 Warlock set vs a VR12 Warlock set when it converts ?

    2. When is Jewelry crafting going to be introduced

    3. When is player/guild housing planned to be added

    So.... from the Ask Us Anything segment...

    LIVESTREAM: No plans currently to have characters be able to sit on chairs. Because when they were placing them no one thought about anyone ever sitting on them.
    *************************************
    Seriously? You REALLY never thought people might want their characters to be able to USE the furniture you put ALL OVER THE GAME WORLD????
    ****************************************************
    LIVESTREAM: Horseracing still in development, no ETA.
    *****************************************
    So....somebody mentioned it at a meeting and somebody said, "Yeah that might be fun..." and... that's it? Can you expand on what "in development" actually means? Please?
    **********************************************
    LIVESTREAM: In game events possible, scavenger hunts mentioned, in the future. With prizes.
    ******************************************
    HUZZAH! Now....can you define "in the future?"
    **************************************************
    LIVESTREAM: When asked if they were planning to make it so we can display character names or for there to be empty houses where no NPCs live they replied that they are discussing it but there are no plans yet.
    **********************************************
    So player housing is definitely still not even being seriously considered at this point, is it?

    When ZOS goes to tweak all class abilities will they be minor changes or will they be completely new skills? Can you give us a sample of a skill you are changing? A skill that's not to widely used by a certain class, like petrify from the DK skill line or the deadric summons for sorcs.

    You do have the option of binding your controls to other keys. Hit esc to go to settings. Click on control and move down to the one you want to change. Click on the letter or symbol next to it and you get the option to change it.

    My ulltimate is at F4 and my quick slot is set to F2. I haven't set the key binding for gathering after opening a chest or whatever. Interrupt is now R. Dodge is F6.
