    But I agree with you. This game is chock-full of ornate, beautiful, and just plain really cool furnishings; it seems pretty weird that so few of them come from the limited-time "Luxury Furnisher", right? Apparently a lot of people are really defensive about their snowy bones and wooden posts and whatnot, though :P

    No, we just get tired of seeing "OMG, how is this luxury?!?!" every other week. It's been done, get a new schtick. /yawn


    Yes, it would have saved a lot of trouble if they'd just named it the "Themed Furniture Vendor" instead of "Luxury". /shrug


    edit: or, if you'd like to look at it a different way, he's a Luxury Furniture Vendor. He's very luxurious, and he sells furniture. ;)

    Yup. Every damn time the theme is not something deemed "pretty" or "luxurious", the comments about it appears like bills in the mailbox.
    I so wish they would rename him to something besides Luxury furnisher.

    The Riekling Bonfire is also one of my favourite bonfires. It's large and one of the few items with a frosty/snow effect.

    For a riekling it's likely luxury, so how is the name not fitting then? Just because you don't find it fancy doesn't mean someone else have a use for it. And the whole "another week of junk" is pointless when it's known the themes are always over two weekends. It was riekling last week, so it's going to be more this week. Which makes the complaints even more annoying.

    Zanil is on a schedule. You can just check BenevolentBowd's calendar to see when something that is to your taste is likely to show up. Sometimes there are changes though, because at occations they do change and add more things.
    The only the big thing I would like to see changed, is the number of new items inscreased. Not by much, but that single item doesn't add much. Like Ayleid constellation steles. There are 13 constellations and at this rate, it's going to take a few years to get them all.
    [Lie] Of course! I don't even worship Daedra!

    For stuff like the Riekling items, it would be cool if they could get all those in one week so it could free up space for new items. Same for the wedding themed items.

    They are spread across two weeks so it’s tough to know how much to spend the first week when you only can see the first week’s items. You don’t know if you should budget for other items you might want if you don’t know they’re coming just the following week!

    Group the themes all together!

    Calling it a luxury vendor feels like false advertising. 9 out of 10 times it’s generic looking junk. I guess putting nice things on the lux vendor is just too hard and dangerous right? They act like they got a warehouse full of stock they need to move. ITS DIGITAL CONTENT! Why they always trying to get us to buy junk nobody is asking for?

    Just because it's not to your taste doesn't mean it's junk. Just accept that by luxury they mean a themed showpiece and you'll be a lot happier.

    Personally I will be happily buying that Bonfire for my enchanted snowglobe house, it fits much better the snowy area than the New Life Bonfire.

    Is that supposed to be a snowy effect on the rocks and wood? I thought it was just their coloring as surely wood thay was burning would not long have any snow left on it, would it? I have no experience with fires outside in snowy conditions so I could be mistaken. Just asking out of interest. :)

    Moving all the non-luxury furnishings to all those Home Goods Furnishers would make place to actually luxury goods. All the Riekling primitive things will be appropriate in Wrothgar, for example.

    I often like the non-luxurious things this guy sells, too! But that stuff should just be always-available furnishings, in my view.

    I don't find it a valid criticism that the luxury vendor doesn't always sell items that fits a very narrow definition of luxury. The fact of the matter is that many people DO find the items are being used as luxury items for their themed homes. A bonfire isn't utilitarian to everyone. Some people just think camping, others think glamorous parties where the bonfire is the star of the show.

    And I personally think those that want the luxury vendor to only sell items that THEY think are luxuries to be obnoxious, and frankly a little disrespectful to the people who enjoy those items but have to read every year about how their favorite items should be removed.

    Some of these items don't float my boat either. But thus far I have seen a lot of excellent standout stuff being done with almost each and everyone of them, as showcases that completely tie a room together and steal the show.

    In the end this is one of the defintions of luxury, and these items generally fit those defintions for their themes.
    something adding to pleasure or comfort but not absolutely necessary

    an indulgence in something that provides pleasure, satisfaction, or ease

    @Araneae6537

    Yeah it looks it's supposed to be a snowy effect on the rocks and wood to me. You're right that the snow would melt with the fire, but some wood in snowy areas kind of naturally has a paler look. So to me, the Riekling one looks better for a snowy area even if the snow not melting is a bit off.

    These are not my pics but they are some examples of what I mean

    Well, toilet paper is a luxury in some primitive societies even nowadays, but I wouldn't want to be able to buy it from one luxury store only one weekend a year. Does it matter what is luxury for Rieklings when there are no playable Rieklings?

    As for the definition, I find this one to be more accurate:
    An inessential, desirable item which is expensive or difficult to obtain.
    And the problem here that ZOS thinks that one weekend a year is "difficult to obtain", but we should really look at how difficult it is to obtain in Tamriel, not in game. A bonfire is not difficult to obtain, you need just a few logs and a fireball.

    All three defintions of luxury are equally valid. And in this case, ZoS clearly uses the idea of luxury that fits the other two rather than the one you listed. Which us entirely valid.

    Who cared about the Riekling stuff? I did. As I said last week the boar pelt is great for a hunter cabin (mine is full so I skipped that one but honestly regret it now), and I'm excited by this bonfire right now. Those are absolutely luxury items the way I'm using them. My bonfire is literally the center piece of a little Christmas party, and bonfire parties are quite luxurious indeed.

    The luxury vendor has plenty of beautiful items that cater to your idea of luxury. You shouldn't be expect to be pleased by the theme every single week because all of us have different tastes.

    An item can't be a luxurious item, when you can see it in any house (especially when talking about poor citizen houses), and by house I mean NPC house, not player house. An item can't be a luxurious item, when any tamrielic citizen can make it without any effort. It doesn't matter what a player is excited about, it matters what a common tamrielic citizen is excited about.

    Yes. It can. If it's primarily there for stuff like comfort and not necessary, it is a luxury. Even in real life, we have everyday luxuries that you can find in many homes. Like nice picture frames, ice cream sundaes, and cozy socks.

    It does matter what a player is excited about, it's an item for player homes. And you can't use this and then also turn around and say "who cares if these are luxuries to the Rieklings, when players cannot make Rieklings."

    I can, that's the whole point. Players can't make Rieklings, so it doesn't matter what is luxury for Rieklings. Players can make imperials or wood elves, so it does matter what is luxury for imperials and wood elves. Not for the players, but for imperials and wood elves themselves.

    Those are luxury items, and fall very nearly into the latter defintion. An item does NOT have to be expensive and rare to be a luxury. Again, your defintion us too narrow

    No. You can't. It's arbitrary and not logical. Either the player pov is important or it is not. Tamriel is made up of more than just the playable races

    Something like this

    Dwarven-Clock-Deactivated-1.jpg?w=503&ssl=1

    Fits pretty much every defintion of luxury. But players cannot make dwarves so guess it can't be offered...

    There is absolutely no reference direct or implied that player pov is important either in "It doesn't matter what a player is excited about, it matters what a common tamrielic citizen is excited about." or in "it does matter what is luxury for [character races that can be used by players]".
