Furnishings is an upcoming feature to Elder Scrolls Online, meant to assist players in Housing Decoration for the upcoming Player Housing update due in 2017.

 

Furnishings Information

 

Furnishings are a new kind of inventory item that may be placed in a home, and can be identified by the word “Furnishing” on their tooltip. These function like any other inventory item until it is time to place them in a home.

  • After you enter a home you own, you can enter the housing editor and start placing furnishings.
  • Once placed, a furnishing is removed from your inventory or bank and is stored in the house, counting towards the maximum number of items that can be placed in the home.
    • You can see how close you’re getting to the item limit through the housing menu which displays a House Information panel. From there, you can see the current and maximum value for Furnishings and Collectibles.
  • You can place each object at any location and at any angle. The only limitation beyond the Furnishing caps is there is a small safe area near the main entrance which cannot be filled with items.
    • Note that certain furnishings such as chairs and crafting stations may not be usable if placed at an unusual location or orientation (you’ll know if an item is placed in a bad location if it highlights red).
  • In addition to furnishing items, you can also place assistants, mounts, non-combat pets, and a new category of furnishing collectibles called Trophies that includes Undaunted Busts.
    • There are separate limits for furnishings, furnishing collectibles, and other collectibles such as pets or mounts.

Specialty Furnishings


Many types of housing objects have additional functionality when placed, including the following:

  • Assistants
    • Any of the currently-available Assistants (Nuzhimeh the Merchant, Pirharri the Smuggler, and Tythis Andromo the Banker) can be placed in your home, and will offer their services to you and visitors as normal.
  • Light Sources
    • Objects such as torches, braziers, and lamps can be lit or extinguished at will after being placed.
  • Seating
    • Many chairs, thrones, benches, pews, stools, and other seating objects throughout Tamriel are now interactive. You just need to approach the furniture and interact with it to sit down, provided there is room and the furniture is placed in an accessible location.
      • This applies to seating placed in homes as well as those found in the world.
      • Seating objects that aren’t placed in a level, open area may not be valid for interaction.
  • Target Skeletons
    • A Target Skeleton can be used to practice with new weapons, abilities, and combat in general. It does not fight back, but is a resilient opponent, roughly as difficult to put down as the second boss from Veteran Spindleclutch II (Bloodspawn).
    • To learn to craft a Target Skeleton, you can purchase the plan from Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator in each alliance capital, in exchange for Writ Vouchers.
      • Writ Vouchers are obtained through Master Writs, and Rolis Hlaalu will appear after you start or complete a Master Writ. You can find the description for these below.
    • Crafting a Target Skeleton requires an Animus Stone in addition to a variety of other ingredients.
      • The Animus Stone is a new crafting material that is also available in exchange for Writ Vouchers.
    • Shortly after being defeated, the Target Skeleton will reform itself.
  • Guild Reprints of Shalidor’s Library
    • After you complete a collection from Shalidor’s Library, a Mages Guild reprint of that collection will be available on any Mystic for a moderate fee.
    • Each reprint contains individual volumes of every book in that collection. These reprint volumes can be placed in your home, and you or your guests can read them at any time.
    • Reading a reprint volume does not grant Mages Guild reputation or progress towards Shalidor’s Library–only the original version of a book counts for that!
  • Standard Crafting Stations
    • Crafting stations can be purchased from Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator, for a modest number of Writ Vouchers.
    • Once placed in the home, these can be used like any other crafting station.
    • Note: Crafting stations will not work if placed at an angle or inside other objects.
  • Attunable Crafting Stations
    • Attunable Crafting Stations can be purchased from Rolis Hlaalu, the Mastercraft Mediator, in exchange for Writ Vouchers.
    • These items can be activated at any item set crafting site in the world, permanently attuning the station to the unique energies of that item set and binding the station to you.
    • Once attuned, the station can be placed as a furnishing in your home and used by you and your guests to craft items from the set it is attuned to.
  • Unique Objects
    • There is also a variety of unique objects, from Dark Anchor Pinions that open and close, to decoy Elder Scrolls that swap between offensive and defensive visual effects, all with their own unique interactions and effects.
    • As time goes on, expect us to expand this category!

Furnishing Sourcing


Home furnishings can be found from a number of sources, including:

  • Furnishing Crafting
  • Luxury Furnisher
    • A new NPC, Zanil Theran, can be found in the Hollow City within Coldharbour over the weekend and has a cycling inventory, similar to Adhazabi Aba-daro the Golden in Cyrodiil.
    • Look for Zanil Theran inside “Cicero’s Food & General Goods” when he sets up shop!
  • Achievement Furnishers
    • Some items are gated by a specific achievement or accomplishment, and is themed to that requirement.
    • Completing the requirements listed on the item will allow you to purchase copies of the item for gold or AP.
    • These can be found throughout Tamriel, including Cyrodiil, and offer rewards for various heroic deeds.
    • Each item is bind on pickup.
  • Home Goods Furnishers
    • These vendors can be found throughout Tamriel in each alliance’s main city and all capitals, and offer a number of basic home commodities as well as local plants and natural stone from the region they are located in.
  • Purchase Tab in Housing Editor
    • Furnishings purchased from the Housing Editor are bound, but may be moved to other homes that you own.
    • These items are purchased for crowns, and cannot be sold for gold.
  • Undaunted Busts
    • Beginning with Homestead, the final boss of each Veteran Dungeon, Trial, or Arena will drop a collectible bronze bust of one of the iconic monsters from that piece of content.
      • Busts are account-wide collectibles, and can be placed once in each owned home.
      • Busts from Trials and Arenas include a marble stand.
      • There are a total of 34 Undaunted Busts available in Homestead.
  • Fishing
    • Though rare, you may catch aquatic-themed decorations while fishing at a fishing hole.
    • These decorations will differ based on the type of fishing hole – some things come from the ocean, while others come from fresh waters. For example, Starfish can only be found in oceans and not from lakes.
  • Shadowy Supplier
    • The Shadowy Supplier will rarely award one of a selection of Dark Brotherhood-themed decorations.
