Blackwood PTS housing megathread: houses, furniture (now with images!), companions, etc (updated)

Edit: PTS came online today, so updated the post with videos and pictures, some in a separate post below.
Edit 2: UPDATED WITH FURNITURE, now that they added them to the Editor. :smile:

Hi everyone, Blackwood is coming to the PTS, so here's the Housing content that we have to look forward to in this year's Chapter! :smile: I'll update the post with more pictures as soon as I can (PTS will go online tomorrow PTS is up now woohoo), and as usual I'll try to compile all the housing info here in one thread for a convenient overview. Hope you find it useful and will have something to look forward to and be excited about! :blush:
NEW HOUSES

Pilgrim’s Rest: Inn Room - via quest or for ingame gold
"Every year, hundreds of Zenithar's worshipers journey to Leyawiin, desperate for a glimpse of St. Kaladas's architectural marvel: The Great Chapel of Zenithar. This suite offers a welcome respite from the road's perils."
qadpaq7qhuzx.png

Water's Edge: Large house - for ingame gold (after completing the Blackwood Grand Adventurer achi) or Crowns
"Those seeking a taste of river life without all the flooding can find everything they need in this cozy bridge home. With both the Outlaws Refuge and Leyawiin Castle just a brief walk away, it's the perfect spot for nobles and lowlifes alike."

Pantherfang Chapel: Manor - for Crowns
"The embattled clergy of the Quenching Grail established Pantherfang Chapel in the First Era as a bastion of faith. Part cathedral, part citadel, this edifice still stands as an immortal reminder of Aedric strength. Allows use of the Pledge of Mara."

Sounds like this will be a special feature of this house, that you can marry inside the house without needing a Shrine of Mara in the open world. I foresee a lot of wedding chapel builds here. :lol: Some more info about this house: "Pantherfang Chapel is a Notable Home with everything you‘d want in a castle of your own. It has two main buildings, a chapel and a fort. You can reach it by boat and arrive at your very own dock."

A whole bunch of craftable Furniture - in the new Leyawiin and Deadlands styles
The Leyawiin plans are from the zone itself as usual, and the plans for the 10 Deadlands furniture can drop from Daedric Portals, which are Blackwood's version of dolmens/dragons/harrowstorms.

OTHER FURNITURE AND QoL UPDATES

Houseguest versions of the 2 new Companions - Mirri and Bastian
btoxam5wuc9o.png
After completing the 2nd Companion-quest (which unlocks after reaching a certain level of rapport with the Companion), we will unlock a Houseguest collectible of the Companion, which will work the same way as other Houseguests.

Firstly, it seems odd to me that Companions aren't immediately place-able in our homes like Assistants, Pets, Mounts and Houseguests are, but instead apparently have 2 versions - a Houseguest and a Companion version. From the way they put this, this may also mean that we can't place our own customised Companions in our homes, but only the default Houseguest versions :confused: It's nice of course that we will get a Houseguest version of the Companion without having to buy a Houseguest at extra charge, but I fail to see why it's even necessary to jump through extra hoops and have 2 versions, rather than just placing the Companions...

Updated Precision Edit function
"You can now precision edit furniture items and path nodes from the Housing Editor's Retrieve menu, without first having to pick them up. This also allows you to make precise tweaks to objects that are embedded in other objects, or which are otherwise difficult to select normally." Nice change, being able to adjust embedded items without having to place them again!

Endeavors will allow earning Crown Crate furniture through gameplay
With the upcoming Endeavor system, we'll be able to earn 'Seals of Endeavor' for completing certain ingame activities. These Seals will be exchangeable for items currently available in Crown Crates. So during the Ayleid Crown Crate season for example, we would be able to exchange these ingame-earned seals for the Ayleid furniture from the current Crates. This will give players another option to buy Crown Crate contents without having to gamble, exchange gold for Crowns or buying Crowns. We don't know the prices of items yet, but overall this seems to be a really nice change! :star: There's more detail about Endeavors themselves elsewhere, just wanted to highlight how the Seals will impact us Housing fans since ZOS keep putting furniture into Crown Crates.

What are your thoughts? Are you excited for anything in particular? :smile: Got some build ideas for the new houses already?
I'm disappointed by the Companion-Houseguest divide, but really looking forward to trying out all the new Furniture!

    I agree they've settled on a formula where we get an Inn room (ugh) and a house in the main city we can buy with gold each dlc. And that's it. ☹

    Anything else goes into the limited time crown store only category. We probably will get something Argonian but my expectations are very low.

    I'm really excited to get that "Water´s Edge" house.

    What I don't like is when Mirri is walking around at home with a backpack (she has one on in the picture) - who does that? It's enough for Phedre to walk around the house with a backpack, but okay, she's a little confused too.

    But another question is whether we can finally get more slots for houseguests and pets? That would be really necessary.

    PTS isn't up yet (if all goes well according to Gina, it will go up in the morning Eastern Time, which is still several hours away), but the client was updated already, so I updated the main post with datamined pictures in the meantime. :smile: Most of those furniture will come from the Crown Store or Crown Crates, as those are the items that usually get individual background images. But it also included the backgrounds for the Houses, so we can get more of a sneak-peek at them!
    It will be a long wait for Pantherfang Chapel! Hopefully it will release in August like Greymoor's notable house instead of the much longer wait seen with Stone Eagle Aerie.
    By the looks of it, that house will be an instant purchase for me! :love: They chose the most boring stained glass for the windows I think (compared to more interesting patterns already ingame), but that fortified keep inside the walls is giving me liiife (a proper castle, yaaaaay)!!! And the Zenithar Furnishing Bundle will look gorgeous in the chapel for sure!

    Why do the Leyawiin style furnishings look really similar to Vvardenfell stuff???

    The long benches have recolored cushions and wood (as seen in the Zenithar furnishing pack image). As I'm looking on PTS, the tables and chairs have that swirly style in the legs that Vvardenfell stuff has. Even the beds are the same shape as the Vvardenfell beds (other than Telvanni obviously)

    The furnishings are incredibly beautiful overall but some of them are just baffling with how similar they are to Vvardenfell for some reason.

    I'm hesitant to post images because this isn't the PTS section.

    My guess is that recycling models makes it easier to make 'new' furniture, and since they were going for a similar look with Leyawiin style, they didn't want to start from scratch. The Vvardenfell bench styles already looked particularly Imperial, so much so that I often used them in lieu of other options in my Imperial homes. So it makes sense that they wanted to keep the same silhouette for the actual Leyawiin items (since honestly, if any bench should look like this shape, it should be Imperial, and shouldn't have been the Dunmer ones in the first place).

    Situated on a bridge in Leyawiin. Can be bought Unfurnished for gold (after earning the Blackwood Grand Adventurer achi), or Furnished for Crowns. The house includes two three-storey buildings, which are connected by a walkway. It has 2 entrances on the bridge level, 2 doors on the connecting upper walkway, and one door on the top floor patio.

    Pantherfang Chapel

    https://youtu.be/JxMYXWFL-pw

    A fortress with a chapel and a keep. You enter by boat and land in a private dock under the chapel crypts. From here, you can access the Chapel through the stairs, or go through the flooded corridor to enter the fort itself, or exit into the garden. The castle has 3 floors, a main hall with 2 side rooms, a mezzanine/balcony overlook above that, and a room on the top floor. The top floor also has access to the Ramparts on top of the castle, including two towers. The chapel on the opposite side is your typical Imperial chapel, and has stained glass windows which feature the signs of the divines! The stairs below the chapel take you back to the crypts with the boat where you enter the house.

    Fantastic work as always blue!

    Love how your videos/images not only show various angles but also convey a sense of scale as well compared to other items. Really helps get a feel for whether an item/home is good for you!

    Water's Edge is definitely a fantastic highlight of this bunch! The split home layout is really interested and that wraparound porch is extraordinary!

    Panther's Fang is really creatively laid out & well done but I can't help but admit the first thing I think when I see it is "Yup, I could decorate about 50% of that place before hitting Furnishing Cap" lol. Still though, really liking the design work of those two, especially how rooms are divided with actual doorways and hallways instead of one giant interior space.

    Liking the lighter tones of alot of the woods as well as the brighter colors for the tapestries & rugs this batch. Also tons of great "Smaller" items like meal pieces and those window planters are awesome. Could see them attached to a wall inside, atop one another like an Alchemist's shelf as well.

    Thanks for all this info, good stuff!

    Thanks, I know, but those are only the craftable plans which aren't a complete list. There are usually many other items in the Housing Editor that aren't craftable, such as Paintings which we know will drop from Treasure Chests in the zone and which are usually sold for Crowns too, and likely other Crowns-only furnishing items in addition to that. So I'll probably post the full set when they make them all purchasable.

    In the meantime, Zypheran posted a helpful video for people who'd like to see what we got for now: :smile:

    I hope not, I don't want to do vet anything in this game. Unless it's with my guild. I am a casual player I don't want ESO to become a full time job. I'm older and don't have the reflexes that someone 40 years younger than me has. Yes I'm that old. Housing is my refuge, questing and occasional trials, dungeons etc with my guild. I belong to a fishing guild I have for years we run around and fish together. I hope they don't keep locking furnishings behind vet content. 😔

    I'm not really expecting anyone to know, but does anyone think we'll get the furnishings in the editor in an upcoming PTS patch? I want to try decorating these but I'd much rather get them from the editor instead of learn the plans and craft manually.


    Also finally took a look at all the new furnishings. The food items are amazing. I love the corn, tomatoes, and the lobster stuff. Still kind of annoyed that the benches and stools don't really stand out from the Vvardenfell ones but everything looks incredible. I'm kind of blown away. Didn't expect to be this happy with everything.

    All the Seafood dishes are a nice addition to the housing aspect of the game. I love that you can make a crazy diverse banquet using all the different kinds of Meals you can make furnishings of.

    I imagine that in the next PTS update next week they'll fix the items missing from the Housing Editor.
