ESO ‘Ask Us Anything’

Lucky you. The 7th ESO “Ask Us Anything” Variety Pack is up at ElderScrollsOnline.com. Questions cover PvP, achievements, guilds, and more. Here’s a sampling…

Can you explain the guild stores a bit more? Do I have to be a member of a guild to buy from it or is it a public store in which a guild of crafters and merchants offer their products? Will I be able to set my own prices or would this be regulated by the guild leaders? – By John Connor

You will need to be a member of a guild to use its guild store; right now, there isn’t a public storefront for them. If you have permission (configurable by the guild leader) to sell items on the guild store, you’ll be able to set your own prices.
