It will be awesome to have Khajiit and Argonian skeleton polymorph. I have 3 Khajiit and 3 Argonian chars and I HATE using the human polymorph for them and lose my tail. Also, there is some quests like in Coldhabor that have Argonian skeletons from the dialog, but the graphic model is of a human -- ZOS can use the new polymorph of a Khajiit and Argonain for such a quest, besides for player / crown store use.

Like the Khajiit skeleton in the picture like, ZOS already have the general idea how a Khajiit skeleton might look like in the skull. They still have to make a higher res graphic for the player char. Also, already have the animation framework for the player's Argonian and Khajiit models, just put a new higher res texture on time of that.

1) Who else would like to see the new skeleton Khajiit / Argonian polymorph?
2) Am I missing anything in regards how easy or hard it will be to add such an idea to ESO?

    I hope they can incorporate Argonian and Khajiit skeletons! But good luck asking Zos to do anything. I sent a ticket to Zos asking why my female characters make male sounds while in Skeleton form, every sound they make from grunts to shouts, is male, and this was Zos's response:

    Thanks for contacting The Elder Scrolls Online Tamriel Unlimited with your query regarding the surprisingly deep voiced sounds your characters are making from time to time!

    As I am not sure what I can do to resolve the issue myself, I will escalate your ticket to another team who will contact you in due course. I have noted in the information I pass them that this is related to the Skeleton Polymorph.

    If you have any further questions or if I can help you in another way, please don't hesitate to ask.

    THEN I received a 2nd response from Zos saying:

    Thank you for contacting us regarding your character's apparent gender change. The Skeleton Polymorph transforms your character into a male skeleton as you are granted the visage of one of the warriors of Stillrise Village when you use the disguise. The polymorph is complete while it is active, which is why female characters sound male when the disguise is in use.

    If you would like to see a female skeletal visage added, please take a minute to submit /feedback in game. You're also welcome to add a topic in our forums.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding,
    Dina
    The ESOTU Team

    They may just give you the same line about it being the visage but say he was a humanoid race :/

    The human skeleton can cover both humans and mer (aka elf) chars and may be Orc also -- that race have the same basic skull except for the the tusk. The tusks are small of detail, it is questionable to make a different model for it.

    Therefore, ZOS really only need to make skeletons for the Khajiit and Argonian races and then the polymorphs will be complete and cover all the races in TES / ESO.

    Nope. Human skeletons are too tall for wood elves.

    Part of role playing, one must use their imagination and the human skeleton is close enough for a Bosmer, IMHO. It is much much harder to use a human Skeleton for Khajiits and Argonain chars.

    A "yay," "Nay" or a "We are thinking about it" type of reply from ZOS will be cool to have.... ;)

    So a player can turn into Khajiit or Argonian skeleton polymorph? Like the human one ingame already, but for the Khajiit or Argonian chars?
