    I wonder if the transmog would be behind a paywall like the transmute one. I'm guessing it would probably be.

    Id be happy if there was some acknowledgement and some plan (openly discussed) about fixing the servers.

    Morrowind, hotr, cwc all good dlc but the server let it down either by poor coding over old code or gerald the server hamster couldnt handle a few more people. Not to mention the continued "loadscreen" debacle.

    Think more people be excite with that rather than "new dlc". When you say "we're not slowing down" all i can think of is "great, more crashes, glitches and unaccessable content due to infrastructure cant handle it". But please PLEASE prove me wrong

    "Elsweyr?" Nope.
    "Murkmire at all?" Doesn't seem so.
    Just another Nordic dungeon DLC. Dunmer and Nordic races are so thoroughly explored already that they have two stand alone games. I loved Morrowind and even Clockwork City as well as Horns of the Reach, but I also would've loved to see Murkmire in Q1. If it's scrapped the fans would like to know. Forget faction cycles, beast races are getting little representation of zones in game. We know we are getting Summerset at some point, but I'd like to see zones we were already shown and hyped up for.

    A new dragon cult themed dungeon sounds great! Looking forward to more storage and transmog, as well.

    I'd also like to see some more balancing on gear sets (crafted and non-crafted), enchantments, and traits. Too many of these are considered not good, or outright "trash", by the community (for good reason). It limits our playstyles, in the end game. As someone who enjoys playing builds outside the current meta, this would be awesome!

    Congrats, ZOS. I can't wait to see what 2018 brings!

    The two new systems coming in Q1 sound really intriguing, I can't wait to read more.

    :'( So, um, Spellcrafting is coming with the Chapter then, yes? That's really a better place for it. :| The Chapters need to be exciting and Spellcrafting is as exciting as it gets. :(<3 ... :#

    Storage (place to store extras) sounds good but what about actually extra house space (more room to place items)?

    Glad to hear home storage is coming. Little worried it was NOT said that item count and player caps would be increased. Also, I'd really like to know WHEN this update is happening.

    I just want to say thank you to ZOS, you have since launch listened to the community and that doesn't seem to be the norm anymore in the gaming industry. I am glad to sub and plan to continue to support ZOS and this game's development and look forward to the great things that are planned.

    Nords, again... When are we going to get at least something for AD : / AD need some love too.
    But transmog - yess, been waiting for this for a long time, cant wait to see how this would be implemented.
    Thank you for the great year, looking forward for more to come ♡

    Someone may have already responded to this (haven't gotten past page one yet) but CWC hinted at the next expansion or at least DLC (but I'm assuming it will be the expansion), and it's not Nord or Dunmer. :wink:

    "Homestead storage items". This sounds like recipe or most likely furniture drops, which IMHO depending on the drop rates, and were they drop from could well be a long additional grind (like the Buoyant Armiger motifs).

    Or, it could be something you get from Rolis in exchange for writ vouchers.
  • BigHornedBeast
    A little disappointed with the Nord themed dungeon DLC (again). Hopefully some new cool stuff will come in the patch though.

    We have explored EP races a lot here lately... getting kind of repetitive. AD would be nice for a change. Covenant hasn't got much love either since Orsinium.

    Is it just me or did anyone else see the "elsewhere" (Elsweyr) hint in the article. Lol, maybe just me since my main is a Khajiit. I CAN HOPE SO!

    Excited for 2018!
    Big fan of this game.

    Just reread that specific passage. Doesn‘t sound like a hint to me, but nice thinking!

    Thank you, Gina, for the "nuggets" of wisdom!

    This is what's on my mind right now...

    1. Transmog and housing storage...
    9438883.jpg

    2. A new chapter for ESO...REALLY hoping for Murkmire, but I have feeling it's that Mephala one I heard about.

    3. Also hoping for Sulima Mansion to be reused as a home in Abah's Landing sometime in 2018!

    4. I am suddenly in the mood for chicken nuggets. o.o

    Might not be nothing but I believe they could relate the Ring of Khajiiti to the Elsweyr plotline. The Ring of Khajiiti is a ring associated with Meridia and Mephala.

    Considering the ring dates back to the second Era, maybe Elsweyr is the next chapter with Mephala's Realm following as a DLC after. I don't know, the ring was already explored in Oblivion, but we will see!

    What I would've really wanted to see, is the ability to place our characters as service type furnishing in our homes. They would just stand in what ever spot you placed them, have the appearance of whatever they had on when you placed them and would go through random idles based on what personality they have assigned. You could interact with them, and swap stuff from one inventory to another. And it'd be cool for your different characters to be able to "meet."

    I think this would be terrifying seeing 8-12 characters creepily lolling about my house. Especially since I tend to make my characters all look similar. It would be like seeing 10 clones. *shudder*

    Pros:
    1. What sounds like transmog (PLEASE don’t blunder it up)
    2. Homestead storage, meaning houses finally won’t be completely useless and huge wastes of time and/or money.

    Cons:
    Dragonbones. Really, more Nord crap? Nords are one-dimensional and have a terrible, bland, generic fashion sense. The last thing we need are more Nord-themed motifs/costumes. Summerset can’t come soon enough.

    Thinking about any breton themed content. Or would that be too boring?

    Depends. Does the Direnni-controlled Adamantine Tower count as Breton themed? We've more or less run out of High Rock to explore...

    (...though now that I've written that I recall we should have a secret Dragonguard temple somewhere in High Rock we haven't seen yet. One in the Alik'r too.)
