    I am so glad I bought the two Imperials that I needed prior to 1.5. I only have two equipment crafters and that was all I needed.

    But, I just knew the Imperial I was going to find as loot would have been in the chest right next to the two whining monarchs in Castle Wayrest.
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    AAHAAHAAHAH awesome.
    Force weapon swap to have priority over EVERYTHING. Close enough.
    Make stamina builds even with magicka builds.
    Disable abilities while holding block.
    Give us a REASON to do dungeons more than once.
    Remove PVP AoE CAP. It is ruining Cyrodiil.
    Fix/Remove Forward Camps. They are ruining Cyrodiil.
    Impenetrability needs to REDUCE CRIT DAMAGE. Not negate entire builds.

    If the guards weren't Gods, I would say boohoo. But you literally have a tiny chance to elude them :(. I did find out that fear works on them though.

    90k? Really? They haven't already jumped that much in price have they?

    I have two of them, muahaha. But what are the prices on NA? 90k sounds inflated to me, but not completely outlandish.

    They are? Could have fooled me, given how little of a threat they are unless you are reckless and agro 3 or more. Even then it's not a big pony trick to escape them honestly, and I only started the skill line on a lower vr character so far even. Los, dodge the pull, purge or dodge out of their root. Easy enough :).

    Uh, that's the whole idea here. Risk and reward. You failed and paid the price, better luck next time? This kind of thing is far too absent in games these days anyways.

    Haha, yep... I sold mine all back before they even were changed from blue like the other motifs. The color later changed to legendary and suddenly all the herd members that previously thought it was garbage magically thought it was awesome ;), sending the value sky high overnight back then when 50k was some change, and remaining decent to this day. I do, however, have some of the others banked and waiting a few weeks :p.

    It is slightly - the Imperial has been going for around 60 (sometimes between 60-70K) the last couple of guild vendors I've looked at and see it on on the NA server.

    Sounds like they need to disable zoning while in combat, just as you can't use doors now while fighting or other objects. No easy travel to player or jump to Cyro then.

    Oh, okay. I saw it for 80-90k on EU.

    That certainly hasn't been my experience. If one catches you inside a building, sure you're hooped. If you're outside, though, unless you pull a few of them, you should be able to get away relatively easily.

    Heck, last night I was playing around with pick pocketing in Daggerfall with my main. Now, granted, my main is VR5, and I was in my faction's starting zone, but I had yet to re-assign any attribute points or skill points on him. He literally had no skills to use and way lower stats than he should have. I successfully escaped from the guards about 5 or 6 times just by using break free, running like crazy, and knowing the terrain and the best ways to get to where they couldn't/wouldn't follow me.

    I then went on to pick pockets and steal stuff in Malabal Tor (so a VR5 zone for me), still without assigning any attribute or skill points. I didn't get to test running away from guards there, though, because apparently I was careful enough and sneaky enough that they never saw me while I had a bounty.

    I agree with @UrQuan. As I was playing around with skills to figure out what changed and what I wanted (on the very edge of town - Vuhlkelguard) I must have accidentally healed a criminal. I was not suspecting this to happen as I had "prevent attacking innocents" and at the time didn't realize a heal could trigger a bounty. Suddenly I saw something pop up on screen that meant I had a pretty bad bounty (I think it was kill on sight). Before I could even think I was suddenly taloned down (I was facing away from the city, didn't see the guard). I broke free and ran for my life, not even thinking of using skills. I also did not assign attribute points yet. I got away pretty good.

    Yep, currently so long as you haven't been hit in the last 5 to 7 seconds roughly, even if you're in combat you can interact/teleport/etc. again at your leisure. It should really be setup to disallow object interactions like that outside of Cyrodiil unless you're out of combat (the reason I say Cyro should be excepted is because, of course, you don't want people to be unable to ever get into a keep for example :p).
