The Elder Scrolls Online is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game set in the legendary world of Tamriel. New players may find it overwhelming to navigate how much housing there is, and what you get for your investment. This guide will provide information on all the benefits including space, mounts and more! Please note: this guide does not include information about PC/Mac Housing & Furnishing Store Rewards

The “eso best houses 2021” is a guide on how to get started in Elder Scrolls Online. It includes the benefits of each house, as well as tips and tricks for leveling up.

ESO Housing Guide: Getting Started & Benefits

Aside from character customisation, many in the ESO community believe housing to be the ultimate end-game option in the game. However, you may begin at any time; it will simply be more difficult to design as you choose. Housing in ESO is a lot of fun, and there are a lot of options with all of the various homes and furnishings available. The issue is: where do you begin? In this book, we’ll walk you through all you need to know about homes, from purchasing to decorating. Let’s get started. 

Are you looking for additional ESO hints & tips? All of our Elder Scrolls Online guides may be found here.

Where to Begin with ESO Housing? Real Estate for Free!

Houses in ESO might be expensive, but each character you create is given a quest that grants them one free apartment to begin with. They aren’t the most luxury places, but they are a good start and will enable you to keep certain goods as additional bank space.

This begins with the quest “A Room to Spare,” which appears in the consumables area of every new character’s inventory. The apartment you receive varies depending on your affiliation.

Characters Apartment Location
Dominion of ldmeri Mara’s Kiss Public House is a local hangout for Mara’s Kiss fans. Auridon’s Vulkhel Guard
Covenant of Daggerfall The Rose-Colored Lion Glenumbra, Daggerfall
Pact of Ebonheart The Ebony Flask is a flask made of ebony. Stonefalls, Ebonheart

Apart from the basic alliance zone residences, each ESO Chapter provides you with a new apartment that you may receive for free by completing this task. Use your subsequent characters for the free residences in the new DLC zones, except from the initial character you create in each alliance.

In order of DLC release, here they are:

  • Vivec City, Vvardenfell: St. Delyn’s Abbey
  • Summerset, Alinor: The Golden Griffin
  • Sugar Bowl Suite, Rimmen, Northern Elsweyr
  • Snowmelt Suite, Western Skyrim Solitude
  • The Kaladas Inn, Leyawiin, Blackwood

Storage of Items

With ordinary ESO, you’ll only be able to fit 15 goods in the apartment, and with ESO+, you’ll be able to fit 30. This simply allows you to construct a simple, attractive structure. Consider a college dorm or a small studio apartment. This is good to start with since you’ll become used to just selecting stuff that you genuinely want in your area. In bigger homes, you can get away with keeping random objects since the furnishing limit increases with each house size increase, but you’ll have to fish out a lot of those random items later to put in the ones you truly want. 

If you want to fast access your homes, use the U hotkey to get to collections, then mouse over to the third tab on the right that looks like a house to see them all. From here, you may port to the interior or right outside of your home. 

Crowns vs. Gold

Buying-with-Crowns-1024x866 Buying with Crowns Screenshot Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

The price varies depending on the size of the home and its location. If you’re purchasing with crowns, you’ll be able to pay a little extra to have it completely equipped. Unfortunately, you can’t buy mansions that are already equipped with gold. The majority of homes in the game may be purchased with gold, while certain crown shop exclusives can only be purchased with crowns. If you truly want one but don’t have the crowns, you may always pay another player gold to purchase it for you at the current gold:crown ratio.

Keep in mind that this isn’t a perfect method. Only trade with someone you know and trust, such guildmates or friends. On one of these massive deals, you may always have a guild captain broker the deal for you, since the bigger mansions will almost certainly cost millions. 

Housing Prices in ESO Right Now (2022)

This table displays the gold and crown price ranges for all of the current ESO home values. It should give you an idea of the price range for each category.

Style Price Limits of Furnishing / With ESO+

Apartment 11,000 – 13,000 gold coins or 600 – 800 crowns 50 / 100
House on a Budget 40,000 – 73,000 gold coins or 2,100 – 3,300 crowns 100 / 200
Medium-Sized Residence 5,500 – 8,800 crowns or 190,000 – 335,000 gold crowns 200 / 400
Estate / Large House 5,600 – 15,000 crowns or 760,000 – 1,300,000 gold crowns 300 / 600
Notable House / Manor 5600 – 15,000 crowns or 1,000,000 – 3,800,000 gold crowns 350 / 700
Exclusive at the Crown Store Crowns range from 4,200 to 18,800. Depending on the size

Which Homes Are Worth Investing In?

It actually depends on your requirements, however I like residences with plenty decoration area and close proximity to game-relevant locations.

I prefer having some extra benefits in addition to the house’s wonderful appearance. It should be located near a wayshrine, crafting stations, guild merchants, or the Undaunted Enclave. After all, it’s all about location, location, location in real estate.

I’ll go through several good options in various price ranges that you should consider. It’s also OK if you just want to choose from your preferred zone. The Lakemire Xanmeer Manor in Murkmire is my favorite home, although it’s a long distance from any helpful wayshrine or crafting station.

9 Houses in ESO That Are Worth Investing In

If you’re interested, here are a few to check out!

Suite from the Sugar Bowl

There are a number of properties that provide more value for your money. The Sugar Bowl Suite in Rimmen, Northern Elsweyr, for example, is without a doubt one of the nicest places to stay in the game. It costs 3,000 gold and is free if you finish the quest “A Room to Spare” in Northern Elsweyr. It’s just a few steps away from Rimmen’s wayshrine, as well as all of the crafting stations, merchants, and bank. It’s good to have a piece of land in the middle of nowhere with a spectacular view, but it’s difficult to compete with that type of pragmatism.

2. Garret of the Flaming Nix Deluxe

The Flaming Nix Deluxe Garret for 13,000 gold coins in Deshaan, Mournhold is a great apartment to get as it is also centrally located. It doesn’t have the best decorating potential with 50-100 furnishing slots, but if you want a quick port to the hub that is Deshaan, this is the best spot for cheap. Getting to the undaunted quests has never been easier. You can also go for the large house Quondam Indorilia for 1,265,000 gold instead if you want the same great local in Deshaan but with more room to decorate in.

Snugpod is the third item on the list.

The Snugpod House on a Budget for 45,000 gold in Elden Root, Grahtwood has a similar vibe to the Flaming Nix Deluxe, but with better decorating potential. With 100-200 furnishing slots, you can really spice it up with some great foliage to turn it into a wonderful Bosmer-friendly haven. It’s also centrally located very close to the undaunted enclave as well as the guild traders in Elden Root. Elden Root does not have the best crafting station set up though, so if you are buying it for that consider somewhere else first. 

Snugpod-1024x576 Snugpod Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

4. The Jungle House of Cyrodilic

The Cyrodilic Jungle House for 71,000 gold in Baandari Trading Post, Malabal Tor is a House on a Budget that comes with a decent sized courtyard. The roomside is definitely small, but it is a House on a Budget after all. The Black Vine Villa for 54,000 nearby is a good choice for a slightly bigger house with a smaller courtyard. With 100-200 furnishing slots, it will be easy to fill these places up to look homey. They’re close to the guild traders nearby, and that wayshrine to get you to the other places you need to be. Expect frequent storms here to light up your house!

Mournoth Keep is a castle in Mournoth, Scotland.

The Mournoth Keep for 325,000 gold is a Medium-Sized Residence in the Northern area of Bangkorai that boasts a much larger property than most other Medium-Sized Residences. It is on the higher end of costs as far as Medium-Sized Residences go, but you get a huge courtyard and a decent sized two story house out of it. The 200-400 furnishings you can put inside might not even fill it up. You might be in the middle of nowhere, but there is a wayshrine directly outside your house. All in all, a solid choice. 

Mournoth-Keep-1024x576 Mournoth Keep Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

Sleek Creek House, No. 6

The Sleek Creek House for 335,000 gold is a Medium-Sized Residence in Rawl’kha, Reaper’s March that is more courtyard than house. It’s central to the trading hub and crafting area that is Rawl’Kha, allowing for quick access to the Outlaw’s Refuge as well to sell your ill gotten gains without the chance of getting caught by a guard on the way there. You can put 200-400 furnishings inside, but most of them will have to go in the courtyard as the inside area is fairly snug. Out of the Medium-Sized Residences I think Sleek Creek definitely has the best views of the nearby landscape, allowing for some great complementing customization options.

Sleek-Creek-1024x576 Sleek Creek House Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

Gardner House is number seven.

The Gardner Mansion in Wayrest, Stormhaven, is a huge house with three floors and a courtyard within the city for 1,015,000 gold. It’s in a wonderful position, close to both crafting stations and the Undaunted Enclave. With 300-600 furnishing slots, you may do a lot to personalize the space. To fully fill up two of the levels to the fullest, you may even block off the lowest level with a carpet or wall decor. 

Gardener-House-1024x576 Gardner House Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

Proudspire Manor is number eight on the list.

In Solitude, Western Australia, the Proudspire Manor was purchased for $1,050,000 gold. Skyrim is a big mansion that is a direct homage to Skyrim. You can make it seem exactly as it did in Skyrim with 300-600 furnishing slots. It has three levels, as well as a little terrace with a view of the castle and some highly geometric landscapes in the distance. Just don’t go too near; the rest of it is lovely! It is near to the Solitude Wayshrine as well as other city amenities such as crafting and banking.

9. The Lunar Champion’s Hall

The Lunar Champion’s Hall in Rimmen, Northern Elsweyr, is a wonderfully precious mansion. And I don’t mean it in a figurative sense. You won’t be able to purchase this mansion, but you will be able to earn it! That’s true, there’s no need to pay for this home with a 350-700 dollar furnishing budget. You’ll have to gain achievements instead.

Completing “Two Queens” from the main quest line in Northern Elsweyr will reward you with mail containing both the Hall of the Lunar Champion and the tablet “Behold the Lunar Champion,” which grants entry to further portions of the residence. Complete the quest “The Heir of Anequina” in Northern Elsweyr, the Lair of Marselok and Moongrave Fane dungeons on normal, and the quest “Return of the Dragonguard” in Southern Elsweyr to unlock all three portions of the mansion.

Making or Purchasing Furnishings

Most furnishings in the game are craftable, but there are some that are Exclusive at the Crown Stores. You can find the items you want either on guild traders already crafted, or you can find the item’s recipe.

Of course, these gamers discover the recipes by breaking open containers all across Tamriel. Most of the time, you’ll discover grains or apples, but every now and then, you’ll come across crafting instructions. Turning in daily crafting writs may also get you a considerable quantity of crafting recipes as a reward. The objects you may make as furnishings via each crafting station have a separate “recipe” name.

All of these may be found in the guild bank’s “Furnishing Plan” section under the Consumables tab. All players may learn to construct the following common furnishings:

  • Formulae in Alchemy
  • Diagrams for Blacksmithing
  • Patterns in clothing
  • Praxis is enchanting.
  • Design: Provisioning
  • Blueprints for woodworking
  • Jewelry: Sketches (to make these, you’ll need Summerset or ESO+)

Crafting-Furnishings-1024x576 Crafting Furnishings Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

The components for most Jewelry Sketches are far more expensive than the item itself, thus they aren’t worth producing. This may happen with any crafting type, but it happens more often with Jewelry because of the oddly exaggerated material prices.

If you desire the item, its value is determined by how much you are willing to pay for it, so shop around at other guild dealers or browse Tamriel Trade Centre to get a sense of what a reasonable price is for the stuff you want. You can also purchase furniture from the crown shop, although it’s not always worth it if you can make or buy identical goods for less money. 

Furnishing the Room

Placement-1024x731 Placement of Furnishing in ESO Housing Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

To interact with the furniture in your home, press F5. You may place furniture from your inventory or move it after it has been placed. Don’t lower them too low since they’ll become difficult to engage with.

To put anything from your home back into your inventory, go to the third tab above “Retrieve.” In a big home, this saves time and also provides you a solid picture of what you have and wear. This option will also display the distance and direction in meters between you and the object. 

Retrieve-2-1024x576 Retrieve 2 Image: ZeniMax Online Studios & Bethesda Softworks via HGG / Angus Green

Right-clicking aligns the furnishings flush to the ground on whatever surface you’re mousing over. When doing so on the real ground, as its intended usage is, this will generally set the item how you need it. When aligning goods to walls, however, it will not function. The object’s base will align itself against the wall as it would against the ground, giving it the appearance of hovering sideways. While it’s fantastic for building stone pillar steps, it’s not so great for most other furniture.

The mouse wheel may be used to pull or push the object closer or farther away.

The item will be twisted about on its assigned plane if you use the number keys.

It’s all too easy to press the incorrect key, causing the object to spin in the wrong direction, so it’s better to immediately stow the item with R and start again.
