Palomino Horse gone for good?

I noticed with the implementation of 1.6 and Tamriel Unlimited, the Palomino horse has bee removed from the game store. It is also not available in the crown store. Is it gone for good or can I still buy it?

Thanks.

    oh interesting question. Did you check the stables? You can still buy horses.
    It would make sense that they removed it from the store, quite wxpensive for a mount look.

    You are contradicting existing information, can you explain please? What you posted makes it sound like it will never be available again.
    Yes, the palomino horse will be available in the Crown Store for purchase.

    Well if it was available on the crown store until march 17, what's contradictory about that?

    I saw the post by AmeliaR back in February, which is why I was looking for the horse in the store. But, wow, it couldn't have been available for more than a few days or a couple of weeks at most, right? :(

    Would've been nice to have some warning about it being limited. Unless I'm just daft?

    I didn't see any warning that it was only available for a limited time, either, so I must be daft, too ...

    This feels like the appropriate time to ask: Are all the items in the Crown Store limited time only? And how can we tell when the time is about to run out?

    The crown store didn't exist until March 17th.

    I was actually asking about how much it was going to be back on March 3rd... I would think the MOD team would have told us then that it wouldn't be available if they changed their plans.

    @ZOS_MichelleA I didn't buy The Palomino horse SPECIFICALLY because @ZOS_AmeliaR said it was gong to be available for purchase in the Crown Store. If it wasn't going to be available I was ready to buy it... but I held off to pay with Crowns.

    What gives?

    Oh, and @IrishGirlGamer, I really don't think it was ever in the Crown Store.

    Okay, this is frustrating. If the dates are correct, then it never was in the Crown Store, which is exactly why I didn't pay real money for it.

    C'mon, @ZOS_MichelleA : who is going to pay $15.00 cash for a horse after being told by representative of Zeni that the item would be available in the Crown Store?? I have 5200 crowns, an active subscription for more crowns (yes, I'm still paying $15 per month), and there's not a lot in the crown store I want to buy yet. But the Palomino horse would be one such item.

    Please?

    This is the same reason I didn't buy it. If I was told it was going away, I would have paid the $15 for the horse but I knew I'd have plenty of crowns to pay for it once the Crown Store was released. So I held off.

    The Palomino horse was never available int he crown store - yet. Here are the mounts coming to the crown store according to the data-mining:

    They wouldn't create the Crown Store imagery if they weren't going to sell it.

    Yes, this would take care of the problem nicely. Just put it in the crown store for 1500 crowns. Problem solved.

    Yeah, I didn't buy it pre-Crown store because I was waiting to buy it with Crowns. I figured it'd be one of the first horses in the Crown store since it was previously purchasable. It seems ridiculous to have made it "Limited Time Only" without warning.

    1. If the Palomino was introduced to the Crown store, they would likely put it in for the same "price" as they had it pre-Crown store.
    2. Even if they didn't do that (which is reasonable), it wouldn't be that bad, the change in price would be minimal at best. (If 1500 Crowns = $15, then 800 Crowns = $8, 15-8=7...so you'd be out $7...) While any loss sucks, it's nothing compared to the huge sale they had when they first released the game on Steam shortly after release (plus offering a Steam-purchase-only bonus pet. Even then, we really had no reason to complain (other than feeling shafted), because it's no different than any other purchase. Sometimes you go to the store and buy a TV for what you consider a reasonable price, and then you find out a week later that they're selling it 50% off. Are you furious? Yeah. Can you go back and demand they give you back the difference? No. That's just commerce.

    Edited to fix typo.
