New Feature: Home Tours

You will find a new entry for Home Tours in the Group & Activity Finder. You can list all of your houses in the directory and other players will be able to visit them.

  • Home Tours has four tabs: Recommended, Browse Homes, Favorite Homes and My listings.
  • You can choose up to three tags to describe your house.
  • There is no limit to how many houses you can list.
  • Two Default Visitor Access rights to choose from: Visitor and Limited Visitor
  • The nickname you have given your home in the collections menu, will show up in the listing unless you change it.
  • You are able to recommend a home while visiting. This will populate the “Recommended” Tab in home tours, based on most recommended houses while adding some newer homes as well.
  • You can search for a specific user or via tags
  • You can favourite other peoples homes and they will show up in the “Favorite Homes” tab under Home Tours.

In addition to showcasing the Home Tours, Senior System Designer Cullen Lee showcased two new features that have never been seen in ESO. Seabloom Villa (a medium house) in Auridon will have flowers/vines which the player can toggle on and off. The Haven of the Five Companions house in West Weald will come with an interactable Companion Table that will show you a vision of the five original Companions.

Quality of Life Improvements in U43

  • You can preview mount animations like walk, run and rear up.
  • Luminous Ink has a chance of dropping from chests and heavy sacks.

  • The game will remember which guilds bank/store you last used and will remember it during your session.

ESO player reception to the new Home Tours feature

The big Housing Feature which has been hyped by ZOS throughout the year left many players disappointed at the Home Tours feature. 

Players on Social Media, the Elders Scrolls Online official forums and subreddit generally seem to like the new addition, but have mentioned expecting something more based on the amount of hype there was. It is known that PC players have had access to a similar feature through the Essential Housing Tools addon and it is great that console players will get to experience this as well.
