    "Mediator Faustina Curio offers the prior legendary recipes and new recipe envelopes for Summerset and Clockwork City."

    Why is she offering Blue and Purple furniture recipes for Summerset, but only Blue furniture recipes for Clockwork City?
    It's actually 'Clockwork Mixed Furnisher's Document' which costs 30 writs, and gives a Blue recipe with a chance for dropping a Purple instead! The Summerset Journeyman Furnisher's Document is 20 writs for blue schematic, and the Summerset Master Furnisher's Document is 50 writs for a purple schematic.

    Now, I'm not sure which system is better, and why we get one mixed and one separate document set, but I'll just quickly say that finally being able to purchase old blueprints is a great change so give a cookie to the dev who implemented these!!! :cookie::heart:

    Moon-Sugar Meadow looks like a incredible zone to build in, the rock formations are amazing and the furnishings are quite nice but, yes BUT! Where are the dragons?? Completely destroyed the immersion for me when I didn't see a single dragon flying overhead, it's Elsweyr right, it needs dragons which will guarantee a buy from me.

    I love the Wraithhome (except for the two balconys) but as there isn't enough good furniture styles for this kind of home will probably pass on it till there is.

    Will Moon-Sugar Meadow also be purchasable for gold? We always wanted a large open garden to build however and whatever we want but it looks like we don't get many options if we can't afford to pay the extra.

    Love the openness, peaceful setting, and building possibilities on Moon Sugar Meadow. I was disappointed that those large boulders in the center couldn't be moved, though. Regardless, I would definitely consider buying this property if the price isn't outrageous!

    Wraith Home is the best I've seen of the 'Dark' type houses. Love the large area with the creepy chandeliers. Perfect for a scandalous Ball! Its not MY taste, but it is well-done.

    - What did you think of the two homes currently on the PTS for testing?

    Moon-Sugar Meadow: is a beautiful and scenic clean slate home, but it doesn't have as many flat surfaces as the CSE and HG did before it. Apart from the oddly laid-out paved road, the majority of the home is covered in grass and bumpy terrain which interferes with building. The huge unmovable boulders also don't help. I did like the small flat soil/gravel area in the back at least, since it's so rare to see flat surfaces that aren't covered in pavement, and it's nice to finally have grass-free soil patches that we can 'plant' our moonsugar and other produce into.

    Wraithhome: looks and feels like a bit of a patchwork. Some floor and wall sections look hastily edited together, with misaligned and/or overlapping patterns, most notably at the end of the corridor immediately after you come in and turn left. The same corridor also has a floating candle in the Unfurnished version (there's a table under it in the Furnished version). I also noticed a strange invisble wall spot on the Western balcony (see image below). Otherwise, good job making something out of CoH/VoM assets, it definitely has strong ambiance.

    ho37lynw693i.png

    - Did you like the new furnishings?

    Yes, they are nice additions, especially the moonsugar and the farming tools! It was also good to see new schematics added to the master writ merchants, since they didn't get anything in Elsweyr. The new master blueprints are great, high-value items (like the grill and the gate). The dungeon furniture from the undaunted vendor look good too! I also saw the new Crown Store furniture bundle, and I sincerely hope that most of the items in it will be purchasable directly from the editor as well (especially the moonsugar and the farming tools).

    - This update includes the third tablet for the Hall of the Lunar Champion. If you were able to check out this new wing, what did you think?

    it's nice I guess. I'm not a fan of the layout and the caved-in doorway on the left personally, and I don't think the scenery outside the gate is as nice to look at as the previous wing was. But that's all right, not all wings can be equally exciting to everyone.

    - Do you have any other general feedback?

    Adding the Furnisher's Documents to the writ vendor was great. I'm somewhat confused why the CWC document is a mixed blue/purple while the Summerset documents have dedicated blue/purple versions, but thanks for giving us a way to get these schematics. Cookies for everyone who worked on it :cookie:! Adding Murkmire documents in a future patch would be nice as well.

    And some more general feedback is that we need more structural furnishings. It's great that you added a lot of Elsweyr structures, but more styles would really help. Especially since there are so many different styled homes and the existing structures look really out of place in many houses.

    Also, keep converting more ingame assets into actual furniture please. It was nice to see that the Elsweyr lounge we've been seeing around the zone will become a furniture in the next patch, but there are a lot of other items too. Weapon racks, weapons, archery targets, painting easels and brushes, instruments, etc. the list goes on.

    Edit: Wraithhome has another invisible wall spot, on the Eastern Balcony too (right in front of the portal).

    This is the official feedback thread for Housing, including the new homes and furnishings. Specific feedback that the team is looking for includes the following:
    • What did you think of the two homes currently on the PTS for testing?
    • Did you like the new furnishings?
    • This update includes the third tablet for the Hall of the Lunar Champion. If you were able to check out this new wing, what did you think?
    • Do you have any other general feedback?

    1) The two homes are nice, for their purposes. I'm glad to see a house with another theme (necromancer), instead of having almost every house in the game be the same old "9 races of Tamriel", of which we already have more than enough. This is a house more oriented towards a class. Now, would it be too much to hope for, for some more houses themed towards the other classes? (Dragonknight fiery abode, Sorcerer's tower etc).
    The moonsugar meadow is alright I guess. Nice if you want to build your own house, and would like a more natural place than Coldharbour. It's distinctively Elseweyr though, would be nice to have an open plot of land home in other areas as well, like Summerset or Vvardenfell.

    2) The new mastercrafter recipes are "nice", but all Elsweyr. There's still a ton of items from Summerset, Morrowind, Murkmire and Clockwork not available anywhere. This is content now 2 years old, the pace of getting these items is excruciatingly slow.
    The Elsweyr items and Masterwork Silver Kettle have finally been fixed though, and now you can bear looking at them without getting a headache from the horrible resolution, so thanks for that.

    3) I really like the Lunar Hall, and I like how it's sort of a memento of the entire year's DLC, like the Halls of Colossus and now Moongrave Fane. I intend to use it as a second part of my Grand Museum, after the Psijic Villa was filled up with exhibitions, anmd the Lunar Hall will serve as a great addition to that. It was a nice idea, and well executed, and I appreciate it.

    4) The feedback is the same as every PTS update, regarding furniture and housing. First and foremost, item slots. This needs to be increased eventually. Second, why not add more small to medium size houses. Again this PTS it's two huge, notable size houses. With the small item limit for such monstrosities, it's often more a pain than a pleasure to decorate them. Vvardenfell had a few smaller size homes, but all 3 chapters and even the 2 DLC in between could have used a lot more small and medium size houses. They're more fun to decorate within the current item limit, and they fill out an important niche for people, as real homes, whereas the large monstrous houses often fill the niche of exhibition pieces, guild halls, museums and whatnot. Currently we're limited to a very tiny inn house and a single, medium size townhouse for a chapter, and that's it. Smaller DLC only get a single, large house (Clockwork, Murkmire). Every chapter and DLC could have used at least 1-2 more smaller sized houses.

    As mentioned above - why are there boulders in the middle of Moon Sugar meadow? They split the area oddly, and limit the scale of decor to the smaller plots.

    Wraithome is nice: I've always liked the deisgn of Vaults of Maddness. Thank you for the 2 portals to the upper galleries.

    Furnishings: FINALLY! Moon sugar cane and Tenmar Dija! Two things I've wanted since Elsweyr released! However, my favorite round cacti with the orange tops are still not available for purchase. :(

    OMG THANK YOU FOR PROVISIONING STATION THAT IS NOT A CAMPFIRE!!!!

    Also not a fan of the "mixed" Clockwork documents, I would rather pay 50 vouchers to gamble on purples.
    Thank you for *coughfinallycough* releasing CWC and Summerset documents. :)

    I think gambling 30 for purple blueprints isn't such a bad idea, considering the fact that DLC's contain far less furniture plans than expansion packs.

    True, but now we're back to double gambling - RNG *if* you get a purple, then RNG again for it to be a purple you need.

    What did you think of the two homes currently on the PTS for testing?

    Moon-Sugar Meadows,
    1. The offset in heights that is separated by the huge boulders in the middle of the area is quite annoying.
    2.The boulders in the middle of the area are not movable and hinder a lot of building possibilities.
    3. Did not see a single dragon fly over while exploring the home
    4. The surrounding area is beautiful
    5. a lot of potential in this house and has been asked for for a long time

    Wraithhome
    1. Feels like VoM and CoH had to many drinks and made bad decisions
    2. invisible walls are annoying
    3. seems some areas dont align very well
    4. Very gothic and has a lot of potential


    Did you like the new furnishings?
    Im always happy for more furnishings

    This update includes the third tablet for the Hall of the Lunar Champion. If you were able to check out this new wing, what did you think?
    I was not able to view it

    Do you have any other general feedback?My takeaways from the houses

    1. Just the removal of the boulders in the center of the Meadows and occasionally a dragon flying by for immersion
    2. a little more tlc on Wraithhome

    I haven't checked everything yet. My impressions from what I've seen so far:

    - to the people who green-lighted the new provisioning station: THANK YOU! (and it's a plan, isn't it? Edited: Yes, it is a plan).
    - I love the new wing on the Hall. It gives us an area with walls and a roof, which helps with the item cap (less items need to be used). It's an area that doesn't need a lot of items to look good.
    - I'm not a fan of bare plots of land, although the Meadow looks great. Also, IIRC, it will be the only open plot with a day and night cycle. I don't think I managed to get to all the invisible walls in it. It's huge and might bring in more cries for a bigger number of furnishings allowed.
    - Wraithhome is impressive, but IMO too big. I was very pleased to see the stained glass windows and that banquet table is amazing (I hope you guys will bring furnishings of that style to the game). Even though the place is huge, it's awkwardly divided with enormous halls and tiny rooms. Might work well as a guild hall. I think the teleporting device to the balconies is superfluous and somewhat out of place.
    - I'd rather have separate CWC envelopes for blue and purple plans, but as pointed out by @nordmarian , this might be due to the small amount of plans.
    - I like all the new plans I've seen. Will the wrought iron gate be interactable? Pretty please, with a cherry on top?

    A few suggestions for future PTS patches:
    - please give max level chars created to buy the envelopes from the master writs vendors*,
    - (if you guys haven't included them yet) please add Morrowind, CWC, SS and Elweyr furnishing plans to the boxes we get with the max level chars

    * as it is rn the newly created max chars starts with enough vouchers to buy the envelopes, but don't have the achievements to do so, and when I tried using my main char on PTS, I didn't have access to the vouchers. (I think I know why it's done that way, but I'd like to test it since this is the testing server) edited: please disregard.

    What did you think of the two homes currently on the PTS for testing?
    I didn't check out the Necro home, just felt a bit bitter that Wardens didn't get a nature themed home...
    Moon Sugar Meadows however is excellent. Nice amount of space, great views, good variety of landscape.
    I concur that the slaughterfish barrier is way too close, and honestly I'd prefer an invisible wall on the far bank. Let us utilize the water space for swimming please!
    I personally like the boulders in the middle. They will make a great foundation for a custom built structure. Overall I'm stoked for this house, thanks for making it so lovely and scenic!
    I also want to point out the issue with the entrance, however, that gate floating in the air is wholly problematic.

    Did you like the new furnishings?
    I didn't place every single one, but those new giant trees? GENIUS. I've been hoping for something like that for ages, so thank you thank you!
    The rest is pretty bog standard additions. The new huge Elsweyr structures are nice, but not my thing.
    I like the new provisioning station, but I am still hoping for a normal, flaming logs provisioning station that would work in any house. The Elsweyr stuff is nice, but it's not gonna be ideal for every type of home.

    This update includes the third tablet for the Hall of the Lunar Champion. If you were able to check out this new wing, what did you think?
    It's a nice addition, for sure. The asymmetrical pillar thing by the gate drives me batty, since it seems pretty pointless and the rest of the area is nicely mirrored, but I will get over it.
    The blocked room seems hastily done, and the stones don't even really match properly. Maybe convert it to a sealed alcove instead of the messy rockfall? Just a notion.
    The ruined stone texture is also really busy and overwhelming. Can we have like, SOME clean stone work? It doesn't have to all be pristine but maybe some variety in color or texture to break up the orange and brown noise, aside from the floor.

    Do you have any other general feedback?
    Overall, pleased. I'm still holding out hope for nice looking wooden crafting stations. The clockwork ones are lovely, but deeply difficult to place in a normal crafting room. Full, wooden crafting stations like what we see in cities would be awesome.
    Moar big trees! Also some huge roots would be amazing as well.
    Aside from that, gj on the Meadows, I'm well pleased ^^
