The ship sounds amazing, but no house in the Apocrypha?

I was hoping to see a medium or small mushroom house since this is also about the Telvanni, and more importantly -- a home in Apocrypha. In the past we got houses in realms associated with princes that want to murder us, but we aren't getting one in Apocrypha. Big sad. Don't get me wrong, I do like the ship, but yeah, an Apocrypha home and more small & medium ones was what I was really looking forward to.

@ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_Kevin Maybe in a future dlc?

    Yea I thought the no Apocryph home was a weird choice (obviously they could add one in the future.)

    The boat is…interesting. When it first popped up on the screen I got hyped (because my eso+ resets right after the chapter launch and I wouldn’t have to waste money on crowns) but the more I think about idk if I even want it.

    Could you give me the timestamp to take a look at the houses?

    I wonder if you can build around the boat, and if the build can move with it, because that would be really cool for custom boat builds. The other big house looked interesting too at a first glance, but I would really also like an empty plot house for the chapter, these are my favourites in terms of customization.

    I got the impression from what she said that the ship is stationary with the islands etc moving around it. I'm not sure how that would work, but then I'm not a developer!

    they'll likely add an Apocrypha home later in update 39 or 40

    there's already Tel Galen though a classic mushroom house instead of notable would be nice

    Can either be purchased with gold? The housing community was seriously bummed out when you pay walled and time walled the only house in Gonfalon Bay. It was unprecedented and a lot of us just thought it was a mistake at first.

    If it works like that and we can customize the whole boat, invisible walls allowing, then that will be pretty cool!

    My guess is there isn't an apocrypha style home... yet. I wonder if they are considering making it another free home you can earn with tickets, or whatever but I really doubt they'd use so many assets for a whole zone and not also use the same assets for a player house. It's more than likely coming.

    I can empathize with being sad about no Apocrypha house but the boat is on the complete other end of disappointing IMO.

    I wonder if a Telvanni/mushroom house will come when/if we get the other 90% of the Telvanni Peninsula.

    True, I DID ask for a proper ship house some time back so I shouldn't complain, it fitted the High Isle theme however. Better late than never.

    My biggest disappoinment with the colossal grotto was that the weather was always the same and the ship had no proper Captain's cabin. Anyone familiar with the ship model in the picture? Unless they're going for a complete new one.

    @ZOS_Kevin Can we please have stormy weather
    happen and high waves? It will make the house the most atmospheric for us sea peeps. Throw in a proper captain cabin and it will be perfect. Tagging for visibility. And thanks. @ZOS_JessicaFolsom Thanks for the presentation, can't wait!

    i don't recall ever seeing the ship before in game and it looks way bigger than any of the previous ships except maybe the Silver Swan from high isle. if it is new the ship will likely have much less blurry texture like the aldmeri grotto ship

    I'm curious to see if the ship's "movement" will be realistic enough for us to see the ship from various shores and to watch it moving (my guess is it won't be that realistic).

    Based on what was said during the presentation, it sounds like the ship will be stationary with only the 'appearance' of moving... so basically everything around the ship is moving, but not the ship itself. So that would mean no, we won't be able to see it from a distance from shore if this is true.

    Agreed. It doesn't feel like it would a manor sized house. Perhaps free porting to any WS would add some attractions to it.

    They do tend to make several houses after the fact. We're only just getting the lighthouse, and that ship (based on the backgrounds) also looks like it'll sail from High Isle or Galen.

    I would like to see more smaller houses. The manors are gorgeous but expensive, and not to mention that the slot limit really makes it so they end up pretty empty. I know a lot of people really would like something simple like a Druidic hut.

    I'm curious about this boat though. It can't necessarily be the size as something like the lighthouse, so it might be a bit smaller. I wonder if it'll be on the size (and price point) as Tel Galen.

    These days however good a new house looks, I immediately feel sad, as I expect that house will be gated behind a Crown Store purchase! ☹

    So many nice furnishings are also now hidden away in the store or purchasable with gems and ofc seals but with seals they get eaten up pretty fast with just a few items.

    To my mind it would be beneficial for ZoS to at least add a couple of new gold purchasable houses. With the current state of many peoples finances there is just not enough cash to spare for subs AND houses AND cosmetics, furnishings etc etc

    Many people would buy those houses available for gold and THEN still spend money in the Crown Store on the amazing furniture to decorate it! Everyone wins!! 😀
