No available research slot.

No available research slot.

The game says 1/2 for blacksmithing. But I can't research the Cuirass with Training I purchased. I've disabled all add-ons and done a repair via the launcher. And it still says I can't fill the second research slot I unlocked a few weeks ago that has been churning out research ever since. This is happening on both my laptop and my desktop. I'm assuming it is caused by the recent patch, as there is nothing else I can see that I can't disable.

Just in case, I went and purchased as Sword with Charged status (800G). The UI says I can research that as well, but it won't let me actually do it. As a side note, you lot (the trade guilds) are ******* disgusting. The guild I buy most from in Vvardenfell (Savage Blade) were the cheapest for a OH Sword with a trait. And even they were pricing OH Swords beyond reasonable basics for research worthy material.

TL;DR: I have an open wound on my forehead from smashing my head against the desk. I've killed a keyboard in the process. Please help.

    I have the same bug as well, wrote a /bug report. No reply

    What I did is cancel the "research I was supposed to had" but was able to cancel it anywya, then I could research others traits.

    Will check today if the research finishes normally or not

    Thanks to your post, I just tried that. I found the OH Sword I had been researching, and cancelled it. To no avail. I still can't start a research item the game says I should be able to, and I now fear I might have lost prior progress as the recent patch notes say you don't get cancelled items back.

    This is starting to look really amature. I stopped playing three months after release to let the platform mature. To no avail it appears.

    Seems like they have zero quality checks or test code. This is such a simple bug to detect....expecially if you add research abortion you should check how it behaves with 2 researches at once.

    Just so you know: /bug reports don't prompt replies. They send data to the troubleshooting team so they can use it to help guide upcoming updates and patches. If you want to open a ticket, you should use /help instead or log into the web assistant here. From there, keep replying to the autoresponse emails until you get a real person. You still may not get anything but a "we're aware of the problem and it will be addressed soon" but that will at least get you someone's attention.

    MMOs are big games with lots of little pieces, so yeah, it's not surprising that something like this goes wonky every now and then. It stinks you were bitten by this bug. If you've reported it, there's not much else to do by hang on and wait for it to be fixed. Or if you're really starving on skill points over it, perform a skill reset and put it somewhere else until you see news it's fixed.

    Peregrine Huntress, bosmer hunter: "I could do much with a good dragon hide."

    This is happening to me on my clothier and woodworking tables with my magicka dps. They should probably send some free research scrolls to make up for it. So far I need at least three because I have 10 characters and its not working on a few of them.

    I'm a dev myself and I understand that you can't spot all bugs which are triggered by multiple actions. But I don't understand how bugs can pass QA if they are directly related and on the same crafting page.

    After a few hours sleep and jumping back in-game, the item I thought I was researching (tried cancelling in post above) is now showing as researching again and has five days to go.

    So this was likely a case of current research not showing for a particular item, rather than research available but not allowed. I'm assuming my support ticket got answered. Thank you, whoever you are.

    Same problem on two of my characters. Cannot cancel, so I'm stuck until I upgrade the slots. Also, in my 3rd picture, the research is done and I'm still stuck. On my other characters, everything is fine. Pls devs help us :'( .

    Greetings,

    We are investigating reports of the research tab on crafting tables not properly updating. We need some information for us to help clear up what is occurring:

    •What character is this occurring on?

    •Have you used any research reduction scrolls?

    •What style of crafting is this occurring on? (Blacksmithing, Woodworking, Clothing)

    With this information, we can work to get the matter resolved as quickly as possible.

    Kind regards,
    The Elder Scrolls Online Team

    I too have a similar problem, with blacksmithing on PC EU.

    It's frustrating as it occurred on the character I am trying to train into my crafter.

    Of note, I only noticed by accident that I have research available to complete as I normally use 'Awesome Events' addon to let me know when a research slot is ready, but the spare slot did not register on-screen on that addon. (I disabled addons I attempted again, but no change.)

    Anyway, ticket has been submitted.... now we play the waiting game.

    Thankfully, there is a way to cancel the bugged timer with script commands.

    The following chat command force cancels all bugged research lines while at a craft station:

    The script only cancels timers for known traits, so it won't cancel any unknown trait research. That said, if you are nervous about it, it's probably best to just wait until Monday's patch.

    Sorry for off-topic but I can't let this comment slide...
    If no one would buy the items for "overprice", then the prices would drop. It's that simple. Everything in ESO is gravely underpriced except for new items that's only been out for about a week. Their prices drop like 500%-1000% during that time. Supply and demand?
    I'm picking up everything and I sell everything, I always try to sell for above average to keep prices from falling further down into ridiculousness. Not everyone is dedicated to keeping the economy sane, so you shitting on my hard work strikes a nerve.

    800g seems fair for a researchitem, training especially which is the most popular trait. You could most likely got it for free/nearly free though if you'd used zonechat. Anyone could whip that up for you.

    tl;dr
    You're a contributing part of the disgusting economy you loathe.
