    1. Will you possibly be doing a DLC for Akavir including the raises like those monkey people ect.
    2. Along with that DLC would it be possible for there to be any new skill lines like Oblivion for example bringing back the Monk skill line so you can train unarmed. The skill line from Oblivion really makes your character feel unique.
    3. Spell making, could that be a possible thing? (I understand these questions are a bit far fetched and I shouldn't get my hopes up)

    I'm in Stonefalls in Ebonheart I practically just started the game. I want to do a bunch of side quests and then venture off into Black Marsh, my favorite province, as it is home of the Argonians, the race I play as. Is it advised to go there or not?

    It's something on Steam's end rather than ZOS's end. Steam doesn't want to give away a key that's its selling because when you buy a game on Steam, Valve gets money out of it. if you buy a game elsewhere that isn't a steam key, Valve doesn't get money for it. But a lot of us bought the game prior to it being on Steam

    There's nothing in place on Steam for the gifting of the codes without Zenimax having to take the hit. I know other companies that are in the same situation, and they have the same conundrum. Some choose to pay steam it's money and give them to the purchasers. But that's being nice, and shouldn't be expected.

    Well since you say "ask us anything" I shall ask.

    Why don't you ever truly listen to your playerbase? Oft times we make suggestions that could improve things but you never take them into consideration such as running maintenance every week instead of every 2 weeks.

    Will you add more mounts to the game that can only be purchased with gold? Not being able to buy every every mount that comes to the crown store for a limited time breaks my completionist heart. Having more outside of the crown store that require reputation and a lot of gold so they are harder to get would be nice.

    Will not happen. The world is not open and built for flying mounts. You'd have to completely redesign the game world from the ground up, and you'd encounter problems like people flying over cyrodiil.

    also map isn't big enough to handle it.

    1. When are Shields going to be dyable?
    2. Also can we have metallic style dyes for our weapons, some of the colours we get are off-putting, and we would like to dye them colours we can live with?
    3. When can we craft jewellery?
    4. Will we ever get a barbershop, so we can change hairstyles and maybe tatoos and scars.

    you don't see jewelry on your character, so why would you want to have jewelry dying??? ;) lol

    Haven't asked for jewellery dyeing, I asked for crafting Jewellery, so I can make the rings and amulets I want. (stats and maybe set bonuses)

    I also asked for Shields and weapons to be dyed, but not pink or any other silly colour (oh alright you can dye your shield pink, just don't let me see it).

    oh, yes. srry I read it wrong. but now we are on it, wouldn't it be cool if we could see our rings on our fingers like we could in skyrim. ;)

    You could see your jewelry in Morrowind too!

    Good afternoon, folks. Below are the "Ask Us Anything" questions and answers from the latest episode of ESO Live from 8/14. Enjoy!


    Do you plan a final part of the cinematic trailer? I need to know how the fight against Mannimarco ends.@BuggeX
    Your actions in the Main Story determine that - it’s up to you how the fight against Mannimarco ends!

    What are the plans for Alliance Points as a currency going forward?@TheBull
    Going forward, you’ll be able to use Alliance Points in order to buy the teleport stone, called the “Sigil of Imperial Retreat,” from Imperial City. You’ll also be able to get soul gems for a new reduced price, and we’re also planning on adding food and potions that you can acquire.

    Can you talk about what you’re doing to improve the Looking For Group system? It’s currently very frustrating to use, especially on consoles.@Frankie
    There are several changes we’ll be rolling out for the LFG system. Not all of these will happen at once but a large focus is on reducing some of the restrictions in place that prevent players from being grouped by the tool. We’ll be releasing additional details in the future on how these changes work.

    Will I ever be able to customize my controller to suit my needs?@J2JMC
    We’ve discussed allowing player customization, but there are no plans to support that at this time.

    Why are there no NPCs smoking pipes in ESOTU (tobacco or dried herbs)? Is it due not being part of the Elder Scrolls lore?@randolphbenoit
    In TES lore, Cyrodilics smoke tobacco, while the Wood Elves smoke dried bugs. We’ve referred to this in ESO lore books, but there just hasn’t been any reason for it, as yet, to actually appear in-game.

    Would it be possible to add the role someone is playing on the character they are logged on with to your friends list? @JBsnow404
    It’s a nice suggestion, and something we’ll consider for future quality of life improvements, but we don’t have any immediate plans.

    When can we expect to get a new trial?@Chufu
    A new trial is on the list of things we want to do. We don’t have a firm ETA just yet, though.

    Whatever happened to the plan to add an option to turn off the notifications showing guild mates leaderboard rankings.@Vonovosi
    We are working on adding a setting that allows you to turn all guild notifications on or off for a future patch.

    Will duel wield characters ever be able to carry the weapons on the back (crossed)?@Arjun
    We don’t have any plans to adjust the current weapon docking positions.

    Will there be any updates to the guild trader system? For example a type and search function.@Geemarc
    We don’t have plans for this at this time, but we’d like to incorporate more improvements to the system in the future.

    Are there any plans for solo content for those that have finished Caldwell's Gold?@Sabaticus
    Imperial City has soloable content in it, but if you really love the core questing experience as a solo player, Orsinium is for you.

    Can you add new icons to the group HUD? During PvP, the crown icon is often used to coordinate huge numbers of people. Could there be an option to add a queen or a bishop or maybe just a few other icons signifying important group members?@mrskinskull
    We like the idea, but we currently don’t have plans to implement different group member icons.

    Will we be able to purchase the Imperial City DLC from the store with a credit card transaction? Or will it only be available in the crown store?@rowanwatkins3
    You’ll be able to purchase crowns from the Crown Store or from the official ESOTU website, which can be used to redeem the Imperial City DLC game pack upon release. If you’re playing ESOTU on Xbox One, you can purchase crowns from the Xbox Store, while PlayStation®4 players can purchase crowns from the PlayStation Store. If you’re an active ESO Plus member, you’ll automatically receive the Imperial City DLC game pack upon release, and will have access to that content for as long as you keep your ESO Plus membership.

    Question, during the last eso live twitch feed there was several posts and questions being asked reguarding text chat being added to console. Someone was nice enough to answer us with the following response:

    ZOS_Jessica_Folsom: For those asking about text chat on console, we do see all the requests for it (on our forums, social media channels, reddit, etc.), but we don't have anything new to share about the topic.

    So let me ask this because I'm not sure.. it states that you don't have anything new to share.. so what was the last bit of information that was shared about text chat then? Was it that there will not be any text chat for console of was there something else that was mentioned?

    Thank you for your time.

    Thanks responding even though the response is very disappointing. Being able to improve you character through AP and make gold brought a lot incentive to keep fighting. On top of that it just felt good to cash in after a night/week of hard fought battles and maybe get something you could use.

    I urge you guys to please reconsider and allow v16 gear/box purchases with AP.

    @ZOS_RichLambert

    This has come up before and isn't going to happen, as they've covered.

    On the surface, yes, it would be nice. However, you have many folks with tens of millions of AP who will easily get every set in v16 from launch with out breaking a sweat and completely bork the already strange economy of the game by flooding unused pieces into stores and trades for likely obscene amounts of gold. Once they get propagated into the economy, you then remove a significant reward for playing new content to get any special V16 sets, which means you then just don't have to buy IC. Plus, this is an MMO. New levels and new gear are going to happen, and old gear sometimes just has to be left behind.

    Hi zos

    First thanks for answering my question on hybrids last live at zos show. My new question is about the undaunted skill line.
    Are there any plans to alter what these cost or how they work, seams to me they dont fit that well such as bone shield, great concept but why cost stam.... Its a shild of magic bone. This would be the perfect tree to have one magic and one stam morph of evey skill. I now this may be a daunting task but i would love to see more done with this skill line and to make each choice a series consideration

    Thanks NecrosisSoul

    I'm wondering if the DLC over time are going to be introducing questioned related to the other Daedric Princes. Previous Elder Scrolls game had a questline for every single Prince and in this we're lacking that. I don't want to be the personal champion of anyone, I see that could be difficult for lore. But I want a bigger role for religion. Are there any plans to make the other Daedra that are quiet in the game now more important?
