    I remember what feels like at least a year or so at this point them saying that X update was supposed to help with the super long downtimes, but the super long downtimes haven't improved at all. I'm curious about what's the deal with that

    Why is that important? 10 years of TESO and maintenance days and people keep asking "Why?" instead of being patient.

    They are fixing, adjusting, improving, adding or preparing things in advance for stuff coming, etc., same usual things they have been doing for 10 years now.

    Just wait mate. No need to keep asking the same questions all the time.

    I think people are just fed up with things never really improving and staying the same. 10 years in you'd expect ZoS to have maintenance down to a fine art by now and as such reduced the downtime. Alas.

    The game keeps growing, so there is more to fix. Keeping downtimes constant is progress.

    Come on! Things are as they are. Every single game goes through the same maintenance processes and waiting times. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but similar things. Even after 35 years of gaming.

    If maintenance lasts 8 hours it's because they need that time. I can assure you they are not adding extra time to go drink a coffee or something. And if they can complete maintenance earlier they will, as they have done countless times.

    Devs work hard every week. After 10 years, being this even the celebrations year, people really need to give Devs a break and stop complaining about every single thing all the time.

    Some things just take time. ESO isn't a small game, so we can expect that the megaserver consists of a lot of computers that need to be updated, backed up, loaded, configured, restarted, and a ton of database data that needs to be backed up and updated. The game data isn't getting smaller with time, either.

    They have been taking less than the advertised time for the maintenances lately, so I would go ahead and guess that they decided saying it will take 8 hours and then finishing in 6 hours is better than doing the opposite.

    People need to remember that ZOS used to prolong some maintenance in the past. Lately, I see they've been quite on time with this.

    They are pulling their weight - good job ZOS folks, good job indeed.
    My wishlist for ESO
    I.Skills:
    >>weapons: Polearms, Unarmed, Crossbow

    >>Sorc's Twilight - perched animation

    >>a skill line - a guild having this - to enable us to increase % gold gain for donating Ornate gear (another gold sink in order to gain more pennies - but over time it would pay off)

    II.Overland Mechanics
    >>tree climing in Grahtwood / Malabal Tor / Greenshade, etc. (with tall trees)

    >>rock climbing in Glenumbra / Rivenspire / Stonefalls, etc. (with tall peaks)

    >>new skill lines - Adventure (enable climbing, increase flora and fauna harvesting chances)

    III.CP 2.0
    >>Craft Tree development

    III.Replayable content in overland
    >>pocket rifts to Oblivion - eg. to Vaermina's in Stormhaven, Boethiah's in Deshaan, Hircine's in the Rift OR in Bankgorai, etc. to get Daedric Sets relevant to the Prince, something like Oblivion rifts in Blackwood / the Deadlands

    IV.Geography
    >>Pyandonea - we had some quests WITH Maormer (Summerset, High Isle) - maybe we could meet them there? Poke poke, nudge nudge, wink wink, eh ZOS?

    V.Other
    (the ideas are also inspired by other Forum Users' posts)
    >>pet battles! We collect SO MANY pets, and yet there are just a cosmetic. What a HUGE potential lies within those tiny beats!

    >>ASOC - a new server in Asia and Oceania. If people have a bad ping there, it would be great if they had a server reaching their places more easily. And hey, it would make THREE servers, not two.

    >>possibility to dye barding

    >>display the dialogue options so that we can see which answer the NPC is reacting to

    >>a way to make Overland more challenging - for those who want
