Housing, the forgotten anniversary

won't be long and we will have 2nd anniversary of housing in ESO

2 hours of twitch tv about 2019 and NOTHING mentioned about housing (saying 2 new houses will come is no basic news is houses, not housing)

seems like last year, we will not get a anniversary "event" for housing, I think that is sad, if you like it or not economy of housing has a bigger impact then the hew's bane dlc and that has an anniversary event??

ZOS just do 1week of double furniture mats dropping from nodes, that's all, show you care?....

    The amount of time and money i put into my Earthtear cavern i'd love a furniture/housing event and revamp.
    Some ideas?

    - Have the luxury vendor bring back everything for a week.
    - Unique quests to make certain items
    - Previously unavailable furniture/structures (give us an argonian mud hut i can put in Earthtear, or wood elf pod, murkmire bungalows.)
    - Event items (more banners!) Lol
    - Increase item limits accross the board, Earthtear gets 700, when the houses in shadowfen get 600? The big expensive ones could handle more.
    - Sale in crown store items
    - Bring back limited time bundles from crown store and houses.
    -Add the Guild house option
    -An official house decorating competition


    Lots of us put an extreme amount of time into our homes. And this feature gets little attention. Please make 2019 a good year for us homesteaders.

    any of these will do :) seems Zos is not bothered and only aims for the 4 quarter releases and ignores what players are actually doing in the game

    A price promotion on ALL houses and furniture items would be great for the 2nd anniversary. I have almost 40K crowns sitting gathering dust and I can promise that if there was a sale on houses (not just the notable ones like Black Friday), I would be spending a large chunk of my crowns.
    I'll play the game my way and you play it your way!

    Agreed, housing should get something.. almost anything would be better than what we have gotten. It sort of feels like housing was done and then more or less forgotten.. except for adding more housing items.. so we can be reminded that housing needs more item slots!!

    They make too much money off of furnishings and housing to do any sort of event to make things free or easier to get. ZOS wants their cheddar.

    perhaps but then their marketing department should grab the opportunity and recycle crown houses and furniture packs to "celebrate". ignoring it will not yield a penny

    A housing anniversary event sounds amazing.

    Just another idea too, maybe make housing mats double drop too, to go along with the fantastic double drop idea for furnishing plans.

    I’m talking things like bast, regulus, mundane rune, etc.

    I’d also love to see some of the LTO houses back in the crown store, especially since there are so many new players who didn’t even have the game when they were originally released.

    It's a great idea, but I doubt they would do anything now to acknowledge Homestead's or Housing's anniversary as it would only draw attention to 2019's lack of new large systems of that caliber as well as the overall dwindling of yearly content.

    Q1 2017 brought us the Player Housing system and Q1 2018 brought us the Outfitting system. Nothing of that caliber brought this Q1, nor is anything that substantial shown to be on the horizon for this year.

    Similarly, look at new crafting systems like jewelry crafting that was brought last year, or the 3 new crafting systems brought the year before: furniture crafting, transmutation, and master writs! Again, nothing of that level shown to be coming this year.

    No, any extra emphasis placed on Housing would only draw attention to the lack of new content of similar caliber. If anyone would like to know more, I've added detailed Q1, Q2 and yearly comparisons to my sig.

    No new crafting or game systems for 2019? "Season of the Dragon" would be better named "The Year of no New Major Features"

    I usually appreciate jaded sceptical souls, and props to you for your comparative content analysis, but surely adding some love to an already existing system would be better than doing nothing and hoping people don't notice? :tongue: At least that's what I keep telling myself in the hopes that housing will get at least some attention lol.

    As for possible things they could implement, they could do a housing celebration event similar to the other celebration events they did with a daily activity:
    - Nodes should drop double furnishing mats which was a great suggestion above
    - They should add a funiture crafting daily (basic easy-to-craft things like the New Life Charity writs), which rewards you with a 'homeowner's supply bag' and two event tickets
    - The homeowner's supply bag should include furnishing mats as common drops, furniture as uncommon drops, furnishing patterns as rare drops, and houses as super-duper rare drops like the Mysterious Reward Boxes did.
    - The Impressario should sell some fancy housing anniversary furnishing for event tickets - they are adding an Indrik pet and outfit style pages to her stock for upcoming events, so they could add some housing-related item to tie-in with the homestead celebration and to give people something to spend their tickets on other than a goat-bird-horse :smiley:
    - They should bring back limited time houses and furnishings to the crown store, the same way they bring back thematic crown store items for events - christmas horse for the new life event, collector's edition items during the DLC events, etc.

    Other ideas mentioned on this thread, like adding more existing structures as furniture, adding different furniture-style documents for purchase and increasing the item limit are things I 100% support as well, but those would probably be part of a longer and more involved rework process than a 1.5 week event they can just slap on the current system as it is. That said, I hope they'll continue adding furniture and doing something with the item limit... half-decorated mansions do get boring after a while :cry:

    I hope for a housing overhaul anniversary...

    - more slots
    - new furnishings from the ones requested by the community
    - wayshrine inside the house
    - more interactions like switch activated doors/lights/things
    - usable beds/food/drinks/pillows
    - upgradable houses (add slots/basement/enable tower/backyard etc)
    - more medium sized houses like Chironasium layout, Alinor village houses, etc
    - furnishings deconstruction
    - NPCs, like servants/guards
    - trade houses, etc

    Exactly my reaction. Isn't doing something better than doing nothing? I'm also not seeing how doing a Homestead Anniversary would draw attention to a lack of new systems - couldn't it distract from it? Also, we don't know for sure whether there isn't some new system or something that's coming later in the year. But, perhaps not, which is why they've hyped the *** out of the one-year story arc, dragons, and necro class.

    But, even something so small as giving us a house in the Hollow City - a house, not a daedric plot of land - would be welcome. This could be made available after clearing the Coldharbour questline and the main questline, and would be purchasable with gold.

    Happy Second Anniversary, Homestead! ZOS may have forgotten you but we didn't.

    Was in the Gold Coast last night and that is a missed opportunity. I know it has two player homes already but both are crown exclusive limited time manors. It's one of these few zones (along with Coldharbor - as mentioned above also a great idea) that has Nibenese Imperial style architecture - it has lots of beautiful open space where they could drop a small player home.

    There are also several ships docked there, with decorative rowboats on shore that could be made into portals to a small ship home (maybe even just the "captains Cabin" as an apartment.) similar to how you take rowboats to other locations like the Delve in Summerset.

    Or bring back/add in the Pirate Cove/Thieves Den from Oblivion or at least part of it. If I remember correctly it had its own pirate ship cabin to sleep in, admittedly broken and wrecked as it was.

    Seriously...

    I've pretty sure I've spent approx 80% of my ESO game time the past two years in Homestead. xD

    If you don't mind a lowly newb joining in your thread...

    I've only been playing for about 2 years and managed to save up gold for my first house and get a larger crown house later. Then when the Summerset contest came and the Psijic Villa was a free bonus, I bought that chapter. Instead of being an exciting work-in-progress, it is an exercise in futility. I wasn't there before the Great Nerf, so it is almost impossible to find Alinor furnishing recipes now. I can farm 10 times a day and get maybe one blue recipe a week and one purple a month. I can afford to buy blue recipes from guild traders (and I've bought quite a lot), but the purple furnishing recipes are typically 400k up to 1.7 mil gold. It would take all the gold I have just to buy one recipe.

    Murkmire follows with so few containers that I have 0 furnishing recipes despite completing all the quests and still doing daily quests.

    What's in store for Elsweyr? Like SilentFox22, I'm really into the housing but the rewards are getting fewer compared to the time and gold invested in it. If you invest so much time in crafting you want to have the joy of discovering a good recipe and crafting things for your house(s).
