I’ve four characters in Elsweyr, because I liked it so much.
With the first one, I tried exploring every inch and doing all the quests and dungeons I came across.
At some point, I felt bogged down, so I brought in a second character to only do the Abnur Tharn questline. She was zipping along till she couldn’t beat a boss in Rimmen. Hmm. back to the Ali’kr Desert to get from 40-50, then try again.
With a third character, a warden, I thought I could try again going methodically through Abnur’s quests and any delves, side quests or whatever to see if I could avoid the bogged down feel of Character One. not much progress there.
Fourth, I got a new character slot, and couldn’t quite go necromancer, but I did make a black cat khajiit very much like Kamira and my own beloved black cat. She’s not moving forward either.
You may recall I was loving the Ali’kr desert area with several characters before Elsweyr arrived. I’m sort of dropping back here to go forward with these. partially because I have the furnished Sisters of The sands apartment, which is currently my favorite home in the game. It is just so comfy, cozy, well lit.
All the homes I own are:
Flaming Nix Garret
Sisters of the Sands Apartment
Grand Psijic Villa
Sugar Bowl Suite
Golden Gryphon Garret
Mara’s Kiss Public House
The Rosy Lion
Saint Delyn Penthouse
Ebony Flask Inn Room
My main décor efforts go to the Mathiisen Manor in Auridon. Whatever cool new thing I can make goes there (though I haven’t crafted much in the past month).
Next, I’m slowly decorating the various Inn Rooms. I travel to these so much, they could be more welcoming. I use things I might not use anywhere else in these.
I wanted the Gardner House in Wayrest for so long because of it’s location. I’m disappointed in how dark it is, and how little it looks like it’s splash screen. Lighting this place up and making it homey is three on the décor list.

Furnished Gardner House
Lastly, I’ve worked out a progression/completionist plan for my “main characters” one for each of the faction areas.
They’ll go back home, complete their maps, then move on to the next area their characters would naturally go to and complete those. For instance Glenumbra/Stormhaven/Bangkorai with my Breton Templar.
A set of “secondary characters” will do the same with Morrowind, Summerset, Murkmire.
It’s good to have a plan, right?
