Deconstructing Furniture

Please consider allowing us to deconstruct furniture. Obviously furniture deconstruction shouldn't return all of the materials that went into making it, but it could be set up like weapons and armor where you at least get back some of each resource. It could be set up so items could only be deconstructed at the appropriate type of crafting station that makes them.

It would provide a nice alternative to trying to sell unused furnishings to other players or NPC vendor.


What do others think of this idea?

    Furniture isn't like weapons and armour, as very little of it drops in regular play. It also gets placed into instanced homes, where it doesn't cause any issues for other players.

    Deconstruction of weapons and armour meets a need of removing surplus drops from the general game world, by providing an incentive for the players to do that. I don't even see a need for furniture to be sold, except to add to the general economy.

    I just keep one house as a warehouse, and dump things there if I replace them. I have reached a kind of equilibrium with that, where I'm retrieving as much as I dump. Even low-grade stuff that's been replaced by more opulent instances gets re-used as clutter, or re-purposed as something completely different.

    I think this is a great idea, especially as the concept of housing and furnishing has progressed significantly since the launch of player housing. Many players will have upgraded their homes and most likely switched furnishing style from their original choice. It would be incredibly useful if style stones and some of the furnishing materials could be regained through deconstruction.

    It’s worth remembering that a lot of players will find endless grinding for mundane runes, etc., too time consuming (or just not interesting), and the price is high for those who do not engage in trade.

    Someone above made the point that furnishings do not drop as frequently as weapons, armour, etc. But you know, it wouldn’t hurt to have more frequent drops of furniture and furnishing blueprints. So many players now have a home and space to fill up!
    All that is gold does not glitter; not all those who wander are lost...... some of us are just looking for trouble.

    I've crafted items that it turns out don't work in the space I wanted for it. Or even items that don't look as expected (before you could preview). I'd rather get those mats back, especially since selling furniture is a gamble.

    I've been wanting the ability to decon Furniture for a whiiiiiiiiile now. Sometimes you make something and it's too big or too small, or it doesn't work like you thought it would, or it just gets cycled out. Why not be able to decon the stuff we don't need or want, like we can with gear? You can always break down a shirt back into raw thread, or a bedframe back into lumber, or a well into separate bricks.

    While running the Elsweyr prologue dailies and getting all the Khajiit furnishings I keep thinking how great it would be to have the option to deconstruct them.

    And again, deconstructing furnishings should never give back full materials. No, no, no. It should just give you a small change of getting some of each material that went into it back, just like deconstructing any other item (weapons, armor, jewelry).

    Yes, I want to be able to do that as well, especially with the bound furniture that I no longer need because I learned how to make it or just don't have use for it.

    I would like to get some mats, like the style material and some specific ingredient, like hardwood.

    Dumping the furniture into some warehouse make no sense after a while, because you start to get more and more stuff.

    Breathing life into this thread to add my plea to let us decon furniture for whatever we can get out of it.

    I can't think that this would be so difficult, as the system for deconning armor, weapons and jewelry is already there. We should definitely be able to decon items we have constructed ourselves, and also ones we bought in the crown store that are bound to our account.

    I have a couple of houses that are filled with furniture I no longer will use because I either didn't like them after constructing them or my skill and pattern library has grown to where I can make much nicer pieces. Sure, I can unload them in the guild store for peanuts but I'd rather be able to go decon them for materials and the odd temper etc. We shouldn't have to sell them cheap unless we want to, or have to destroy them for nothing just to get them out of inventory.

    Please plan this into an update soon!

    I agree with this.
    All the craftable stuff should be deconstructable either. Odds of successful mats drops should be similar to the odds of gear deconstruction and/or related to the char's crafting skills.

    Why not? I’m putting blue and even purple improvement mats into a lot of furniture just like in armor and weapons, and I could sure use some of them back.

    How about upgrades as an alternative? Rework a plain bed into a canopy one, by adding extra material, or a plain chair into a padded one?

    That’s a good idea, but might be hard to implement because the two recipes (the original one and the upgrade) would have to be very similar in type and materials I think. For instance, you’d have to upgrade the regular Khajiit bed to the Khajiit canopy bed only. That seems like it would be too limiting to be very useful. I can’t think of many recipes that fit that criteria. When I think about how the game would handle comparing the recipes, it would get complicated really fast.

    I think it's a reasonable idea though one that would require extensive planning and implementation time.
    For all furnishings without a furnishing plan, they'd need to decide which craft and what mats to drop.
    For all furnishings with a furnishing plan, part of that work is done, so the next step would be to code in the decon station a check that you have all the required skills -- furnishings often require more than one crafting skill line -- and allow it to drop the proper mats. (Otherwise I think they'd let you get a rune or two from an item that had a glyph in it … but they don't).

    Not an unreasonable idea and not an impossible situation.

    If they were to move ahead with this idea, maybe they could consolidate all furnishing-crafting into a single new type of station, like a "workshop", where you only make furnishings and all your plans are available in one place, nicely sorted by type.

    It'd be a good idea, we could get some of our rare materials, like mundane runes, back in this way. I frequently make furnishings that end up not being placed, because, for instance, my plans for the decorations changed, and storing them or selling them is not always an option due to slot space constrains, or because they are items from well-known recipes, that won't sell quickly. I guess the ones made in alchemy stations won't have that option, but it'd be great if we could have it for the other crafts.

    Correct, @Dusk_Coven.

    For example, the Resplendent Sweetroll will convert to 400 gems ... if you don’t want to use it as a furnishing.
