    I'll be watching, one of the things I missed most whilst taking a break from the game.

    Some ESO Live, node farming and a nice warm evening coffee. :love:

    I am glad that @ZOS_RichLambert and @Wrobel will be discussing the balance changes. After the last PTS patch things look OK for me but it still very important to see why the combat designers did some of the changes.
    @ZOS_GinaBruno where can we ask questions for the show?
    Because I can!

    Any chance the game will ever get a PVP server where you can attack players from other factions anywhere? Any future changes planned for Cyrodiil encouraging more solo or small group exploring and questing?

    Stamina is already under-performing in PvE (typically 2 out of 12 players are stamina in trials). This update is going to make them completely irrelevant. Are there any plans to prevent this?

    Nightblades; both stamina, and magicka are horribly under-performing in terms of DPS, even though they are the squishiest class in the game. Any plans to rectify this?

    The Death Stroke nerf wasn't necessary. The buff, and debuff it provides is excellent, but the damage it produces isn't incredibly high, and it misses quite often. The majority of the QQing about this ability is misdirected since the main culprit is stealth damage. Are there any plans to adjust or remove stealth damage in PvP?

    2H got no love this update, even though it is greatly out-shined by Dual Wielding. Are there any plans to buff 2H? And while we're on the subject, are there any plans to reduce the cost of the 2H ultimate that way people will actually use it?

    Curious if the developers have plans to offer guild halls ?

    I had a suggestion for guild halls as well but curious if it's in the plans?

    Please make sure Minor Magickasteal is discussed. From PTS testing, this change effects Elemental Drain and Force Siphon, significantly reducing the amount of magicka regen received. Was this the intention of this change, so that end game PvE builds have to take regen more seriously? Also, assuming a Templar is in the group, why would anyone ever run either of those skills again? Is that also intentional?

    I've a question: Since Thieves Guild released, the weekly rewards for trials have remained themed after Maw of Lorkhaj, even after the Craglorn trials were revamped. Will we ever see the return of Craglorn Trial loot to the Trial weekly rewards?

    Why is it that Crescent Sweep hits as hard as Incap, hits multiple targets, has a DoT component, is undodgeable, and costs the same amount?

    Isn't that a slap in the face for Nighblades; especially since Templars gain 3 ultimate every time they activate backlash (every 6 seconds); whereas stamblade ult generation is every 15 we gain 2 ultimate from Transfer (due to Siphoning Attacks), and 20 ultimate every 45 seconds. As you can see, the ult generation between the two isn't very different (once every 45 seconds the stamblade gets their ult first, every other time the Templar does). However the utility, and reliability of the two ults are very different.

    Crescent Sweep is a guarantee hit that hits hard, and is great for 1vX. Incap hits hard as well, but misses 1/3 of the time, and is only good against single target.

    Does this seem balanced to you?

    Are there any chance of getting option to change armor style? There are so many motifs and so little opportunity to experience them. Crafting duplicate set because you want to wear different style is stupid option!

    Totally agree.
    Maybe something along the lines of crafting a particular item after reading the corresponding motif.
    This item is like a trophy and you sell it but it allows you to change to this type of armor like in the appearance section.

    Would you be willing to discuss future features or expansions to the housing system? For instance, some people have been requesting things like functional interior doors, pathing for pets and assistants, resizing decorations, and placing alts in homes. Are any of these on the table -- and, alternatively, are there any of these that you can rule out completely just so we don't get our hopes up?

    For @Wrobel and @ZOS_RichLambert

    1. Can you explain the reason behind the cost increase to Strife?
    2. Can you explain what you had in mind for magic NB's playstyle? Are they meant to be played at range, or up close? Are they meant to be mobile, or stand their ground? Are they meant to have utility or raw damage?
    3. What are your plans for Grim Focus?
    4. Do you believe Impale is in a good place after it's range buff?
    5. I PVP on magic DK, magic sorc, magic Templar, stamina NB, stamina sorc, and magicka NB. I run heavy armor on every one of these characters, except for the magic sorc and sometimes the stamina NB. I wouldn't describe any of these characters as tanks or berserkers, but I still feel gimped if I run any other armor type. Can we see light and medium armor made more appealing for the classes that aren't magic sorc and stamina NB?
    6. You've said in the past that you like the idea of proc sets, and want to keep them in the game in some form. However, many people disagree with you. Can you take a moment to explain to those that dislike proc sets why they're good for the game?

    Are you at least trying to think on a fix for the weapon self-sheath right after entering combat and double bar swaps?
