How to Start with Housing in ESO

Getting started with Housing is rather easy! Accept the free Crown Store Quest: “Room to Spare” and talk to Felande Demarie at the starter zone of your Alliance! After a short introduction she will give you your first house for free! It is a small Inn room but it is still your first ESO House!

Room to Spare Quest

You can alternatively find Felande Demarie in the starter town of your Alliance directly without accepting the Crown Store Quest first! The room you get as your first House depends on your alliance. The available Inn Rooms, depending on player Alliance are:

  • Mara’s Kiss Public House in Vulkhel Guard, Auridon(Aldmeri Dominion)
  • The Rosy Lion in Daggerfall, Glenumbra(Daggerfall Covenant)
  • The Ebony Flask in Ebonheart, Stonefalls(Ebonheart Pact)

Every ESO Chapter adds a new Inn Room you can purchase, so you can have a small House in every location!

Types of Houses in ESO

There are a few different types of Houses you can buy in ESO! The larger the House the more expensive to get but also offers more benefits! In general you can buy a House with both Gold or Crowns(premium currency) but some of the largest are only available to buy with Crowns. Houses are account wide so you can buy them with one character but you can use them with all! These are the various types of Houses in ESO and their furnishings limitations:

What are the Benefits of having a House in ESO

Owning a House(or more) in ESO can be very helpful! First of all you can use your House as a free teleport point and reach certain zones fast! You can teleport inside or outside of your house from everywhere in the game(excluding the PVP zones of Cyrodiil and Imperial City). This allows you to reach points of interest faster and without paying a fee.

Housing Travel Options

Another great reason to have a house is the additional storage space for your account! It is possible to place storage items that allow you to save more item sets or consumables than you can in your Bank! Increasing like this the amount of items you can loot and save for later use.

Placing crafting stations, Mundus, training dummies, House guests and other special items will also help you with creating Builds for PVE or PVP and practicing your rotations!

Houses are also a great way to meet with your in-game friends or they can also serve as Guild Halls where you train and socialize with your fellow guild members.

How to obtain furnishings for Housing in ESO

There are a few different ways you can obtain furnishing for your Houses in ESO! The first and easier one is to buy them from the Crown Store! There are several special furnishings always on sale in the Crown Store and you can even buy collections of items for a specific purpose!

Furnishing Collections in Crown Store

Another way is to craft them! Crafting furnishings is not only a more rewarding way to decorate your House but also a great way to make Gold in ESO! Every Crafting Profession in ESO has a special Furnishings Crafting Option, that is using a special material. You can find the material while harvesting normal Crafting materials. The furnishing crafting and special material you can use for each profession are:

  • Alchemy: Formulae – Alchemical Resin
  • Blacksmithing: Diagrams – Regulus
  • Clothing: Patterns – Bast, Clean Pelts
  • Enchanting: Praxis – Mundane Runes
  • Jewelry Crafting: Sketches – Ochre
  • Provisioning: Designs – Decorative Wax
  • Woodworking: Blueprints – Heartwood

Crafting Furnishings

To craft a furnishing you need to know first its crafting recipe! You can buy the most common ones from vendor NPC around Towns. To obtain the rest you will have to be lucky while adventuring or stealing! Playing as a Thief is a great way to collect valuable furnishing recipes, especially from newly added zones! A dedicated Thief Build like my Cloak and Dagger Nightblade Thief can be very helpful for that type of gameplay!

Another way to get crafting recipes is by exchanging Writ Vouchers with Rolis Hlaalu or Faustina Curio at the Capital of your Alliance!

Rolis Hlaalu

Finally you can also buy furnishings from the Luxury Furnishing Vendor that appears every Weekend in the Hollow City, Coldharbour!
