    I voted bard but realize it's likely never going to happen. That's ok, probably same goes with the rest of this list but it's always nice to dream. And who knows, maybe there's something better happening for anniversary time?

    Punching mobs in the face and it doing damage would be hilarious.

    I’d love the hell out of that. But in reality, all of those are great options! :) I’d also just love to see them update stuff we have - graphics, textures, PvP, QOL stuff, etc Happy holidays!

    we'd probably get new character slots and i could make my unofficial maormer arcanist really a maormer :)

    i love maormer.

    bard, unarmed, and one handed skill lines would be cool too.

    spell crafting seems like a big fantasy as it was announced in 2014 and never happened, but it would be amazing if it happened someday.

    "Runes, Rune + One handed weapon - battle mage." / "Spear weapon."

    Both of these fall in the category of "visuals over function". Players that want these, want the LOOK and I agree both would LOOK cool. However, I don't think either of these have enough design space to set themselves up FUNCTIONALLY different then other things we already have available. Style over substance.

    "No weapons, just martial arts - Monk." / "Bard - Music does damage." / "Spell crafting - create your own skills." / "Dwemer Technician skill - You can create and control dwemer constructs."

    These are all in the "I could see this working" category. New classes like Bard or Dwemer Technician are much more likely for ZOS to do. An unhanded weapon skill line or SpellCrafting would both be cool too, and has lots of design space, but really impacts all parts of combat. ZOS most likely will not want to take that much risk when they can develop compartmentalized in just a new Class. Less risk, less development.

    "Npc Romance/marriage." / "Maormer / sea elves playable race."

    These are in the "RP" category. Neither I think are likely to be considered by ZOS though. Marriage/Romance is way too touchy and risky for a game they want kids to play. A new playable race could be possible, but would need to have enough reason to develop all the styles, ingame references, zones, ect. The reward vs cost is really low for a new race in development effort and how much the game can make use of a new playable race.

    Personally, I just want them to fix the myriad of issues in the base game and refresh the base game look to match all of the DLC development. Base game dungeons are falling apart at the seams, old zones are stale and boring. I want them to fix up what we have before taking time investing in something new. However, that doesn't sell a DLC... so we won't be seeing this anytime soon.

    ESO has a mature rating. It's not aimed for kids.

    That 17+ rating is really just for fantasy violence, drinking, and language, which are unavoidable really. There are some Sex, Nudity, and Romance references in the game already, yes, but they are minor quest elements or offhand comments. Marriage and Romance would be much more racy and politically correct. Why would they want to wade into that subject and suffer the potential backlash? Better for the company to steer clear of it entirely. A very small portion of your player base even cares for this element in the first place.

    Repeatable quest-type systems that are more varied and interesting than the dailies we have now.

    For example, bounty hunts (monsters, NPCs, and using Blade of Woe for Dark Brotherhood types), steal specific items, scavenger hunt items, find items for collections, etc.

    I'd also be interested in seeing them add ALL options in ALL zones to quest givers like Bolgrul, rather than limiting these quest givers to a tiny percentage of what's available.

    I'd love more story quests set in existing zones. No need for ZOS to create a whole new zone. I'd buy quest packs with short story arcs from the crown store if they were available.

    The game has so much wonderful content in it already that adding new stuff is challenging. I don’t care a bit for IA, ToT or the latest weird ugly zones (much prefer ‘normal’ terrain/topography like High Isles over the weird stuff like Clockwork City, Acrapaphobia, Deadlands).

    What I’d really like to see is actually not new content but a refinement to existing content features. Some easy, some not so much. Examples:

    Fix the butt on the Timbercrow Wanderer costume.
    Let mounts swim.
    Let mounts stick around for 7-8 seconds or so when you dismount – long enough to harvest and remount.
    Separate hip, butt, crotch flappers from chest apparel. Anything that gets attached at the waist (flappers, books, scrolls, pouches, etc) should be attached to belts, not chests).
    Class change tokens.
    Consider adding new content/quests to some of the older existing zones. I find these older zones the most beautiful and enjoyable by far.
    Keep working to reduce random crashes.

    problem with anything they do , they do it in a way that makes all but 1 thing the meta to use. so while it would be nice to spellcraft, the result would be only 1 thing from it would be what you must use for most damage.
    they are incapable of making things different but all do the same damage.
    sets could be balanced so they all do the same damage in the end by a tier of the set, but they do not do this.

    Well, you said it all for me, so now I don't have to!

    Other than all that, though, I want to see pvp get some love, even though I don't pvp myself. As I said in another thread, fair is fair - it's pvp's turn.

    And it will never happen even though it is quite plausible for a group of them splintering off and joining in this era, it wouldn't break the lore in other games as their induction would be short lived.

    I have simple tastes, I want to be able to catch an arrow out of the air and throw it back and suplex a dragon to death (I know, my dreams are unrealistic). The other options are good too, though some I'm not sure are feasible (like spellcrafting).

    Also re: npc romance I think looking to previous Elder Scrolls titles would give us the best idea of what to expect as far as appropriateness for children. For example, here's marriage in Skyrim:
    Skyrim Marriage speedrun in 2:27 IGT
    It's not racy, so we're good to go! From this precedent I'd expect ESO romance to have the following steps:
    1. Escape a dragon attacking a town
    2. Realize that your hands are still bound, so head back to the dragon attack and then escape again
    3. Horse tilt halfway across the map at blinding speeds
    4. Get a friendly Ivarstead guard to carry you the rest of the way to Riften
    5. Trick a merchant into giving you all his gold by selling his own wares back to him
    6. Bribe the object of your affections 500g to marry you
    Oh man ESO romance is going to be awesome!!!
    (In all seriousness, I want NPC romance in ESO but I don't see why anyone would expect anything more than how it was implemented in Skyrim: completely chaste and deep as a puddle. But that's okay, sometimes you just want the collection of pixels to say nice things to the other collection of pixels).

    Of the list, maormer as a playable race could be fun. Maybe spellcrafting, depending on how it was implemented, but I am not expecting that to be feasible.

    Additional classes and characters can be fun, although I hope that sort of bard class is never introduced, honestly.

    I would rather the systems we have be given further depth and improvements than adding new ones, although I’m not against it, and enjoy the Archive.

    I would like to see more diplomatic options in PvE overland, like if you had the persuasive skill (or what it's called) you could, if you met an enemy get a synergy that said something like "Offer peace". I think it should depend on how persuasive you are, and how well the enemies are willing to be manipulated, and it should also nullify the moment you kill or steal from them, after they have agreed to your peace offer.
    It should of course only be available in PvE, and only with unscripted fights, so no drinking tea with Nocturnal. It should also not be possible in group content like dungeons and trials etc.

    My second choice is sea-elves

    Another idea: A PvE vs PvE zone.... where players have to choose 1 of 2 at-war factions, and do dailies for them. Each faction grants their own skilltree, and this tree is only available if you choose that faction and did enough dailies to unlock it(switching factions does not let you keep the other faction's skilltree). The more dailies for a specific faction are run, the more zone-area that faction unlocks against the other faction. Which could contain dailies which do not count to unlock more of the zone. If not enough dailies are done to keep an area unlocked, either the other faction or a neutral party will own it.

    I would prefer a Dwemer Scientist class, not just a skill line.
    Skill lines could be:
    - electricity magic, like Sorcerers but with some tool effect (like Arcanists use books)
    - steam magic, may apply fire damage so as not to break the balance with totally new effects
    - mechanical summoner, like Warden, Necromancer or Sorcerer but with Dwemer machines

    Yes, I know we should wait till 2025 for a new class.
