I'm a Role Player at heart and me and my friends have complied a list of what we feel is missing and are very much needed at this point in time.1. Appearance changing option/NPC/scroll.
(Working on it besides the upcoming DLCs longterm)
Most RP-ers also have a Pve/PvP life beyond the boundaries of the gathering locations and some of us didn't intend to RP with him at first.. Some of us have made mistakes during our character creation, others have decided to change their character's type/personality and want to make some look modifications along with it and other just get more and more scars every day. Regardless of their reasons, this is a basic option that should have been implemented ages ago. ((Yes I put this option first, it's my post, I need it like a fish needs water.))2. Housing.
(Working on it besides the upcoming DLCs longterm)
Whether it's just player housing or guild housing , most of my friends feel dire need for privacy. I believe most RP-ers can relate to this issue. Besides, those of us that manage without can give some interesting scenes for random questing people when they walk into a doorless tavern room. Some of them are trols, some shy away, but there might be an under-age walking by at some point.
2.1. Decoratable houses: We all want multiple options to personalizing our home. To count the main wishes: the style of architecture, interior wall hue, style of furniture and most important of all, we would greatly enjoy placing all those stolen trinkets around our home, to be displayed for every visitor to see. It may cause lag but only if there isn't an item limit to it.3. Interactive emotes.
Can I get a shout out from all those couples RP or non-RP? The most needed would be:
- -hugging (is the most used emote so far, we just manage with /welcome)
- -carrying (second most used emote. Sometimes a lover cradles his/her significant other, other times a bouncer picks up an unconscious drunkard on his shoulder and plops him out the bar but most of the times, us stronger warriors carry the wounded to a healer)
- -kissing (during a hug or when the s.o. is cradled or whenever you feel like it, this is a massive occurrence and not just for couples)
- -dancing (sure we can work out to synchronize the /dancealtmer emote but it's not the same as something especially coded for us to enjoy)
- -push and pull (Nothing would be more hilarious than to drag afk people around, though it's not necessary to actually move a player from his/her spot)
<<Awaiting more inputs from the forum users>>
This new option will go along nicely with a special UI window where we can use all emotes, much like skills, and may be sort them on a bar too, because there are SO many and we can get lost easily in them.4. Separate banking slots/system for clothes/equipment that serve as RP costumes.
(In the second quarter of the year we will get crafting bags in which we can store an unlimited number of mats. It will come along with the DB DLC)(I am NOT referring to the collectible or crown store costumes!)
We have to deal with all the items provisioning, alchemy and enchanting need for crafting. We barely have room to save a new set or two for PvE and PvP purposes. Now imagine this crafter having to deal with RP to. What I'm suggesting is a separate banking tab where you can put in the regular clothes you find by stealing and crafted/ found set items that will lose all their stats if they are placed in this tab. I'm sure RP-ers have that once lvl 15 set item that they think it's looks so awesome on them when they go chatting with high nobles (the RP-er being V1+). I for one have a Haloween costume that can't bare to throw away.5. More guild slots.
Let's face it, your character is a Nord = Tavern RP guild, which is also a werewolf = Pack hunting guild , which is also of noble blood = High nose guild , which has a bunch of vampire friends = Vampire guild and he's thinking of getting cured and mouth-watering at that new guild that is all good and righteous. " Now how can I keep to all these clans and get my PvE, PvP and merchant guild needs satisfied?". Just saying it's not easy to find guilds that satisfy most of these needs in one go. Also people make bad decisions and won't leave their friends for PvE needs or the other way around. Oh and not to forget, you have more than 1 RP character and they all have their different personalities and affiliations!6. Extended Appearance Bars (Height; more?).
I have a Cathay-rath Khajiit, that's 7'5 tall kitty and I feel stupid having to explain this to the Altmer women that call me shorty. Also my Nord friend proclaims he has giant's blood running through his veins and is just as tall as I am. Then my Bosmer friend is sick of being smaller than all the Bosmer ladies. And I'm sure there's RP-ers out there that proclaim they are children (vampire children possibly) or suffer from some sort of dwarfism (leaving out all the other Khajiiti breeds). This is a cry I frequently hear from the RP community and random players on zone chat. Of course, any true RP-er would not want any lore-violating implementations.7. Sittable Chairs.

I would also like to add the option to make furniture sittable. "Sit on Bench" addon does an adequate job, but you end up sitting on the very edge of the seat, and this doesn't work at all for benches and tables. There are a lot of areas with so many chairs around a table that /sitchair doesn't even work, because there's just no room for you and your friends! I'm not sure how large a task this would be (there's a lot of chairs in the world...) but it would be very nice to see.8. NPC chatt OFF option.
Tavern RP can be a common thing and most taverns also have bards and NPC that talk if you get anywhere near them or NPC that constantly have something to say. Tavern RP can take hours and some taverns are filled daily. There is only so many times I can take hearing "Red Diamong" sang before I feel like I want to kill Malukah.9. Name changing option.
[Aded by connor_worlineub17_ESO] (Working on it besides the upcoming DLCs)
Some of us made mistakes here to. This wouldn't be possible in any other MMO but I believe there is a reason we have an -account name- and this option is to be expected to show up soon. It can also go well with a drop list of names you had before and a great limitation to how often you can change it. Though it may sound scary, the Steam community seems to work very well with it and have no issue what so ever with finding their friends. Not to mention they enjoy having to play around with this option.
These are the most important features that must be addressed. They are somewhat pressing matters and I'm sure all RP-ers will agree. Apart from these matters there are the usual: More hair styles, more clothes, more pets and mounts, more emotes, etc.
I request all users who read above to post below their approval, disapproval and other requests
I might have missed. I will be editing this post to may be have a better chance at getting the developer's attention with a nice clean presentation.
