    Seems like a really good deal, though I'm not a fan of relying on the pots in the Crown store. I go through them VERY quickly, so I'm quite happy with my cyrodiil ones. Replace them with crown drinks and you've got yourself a deal ;)

    Will it be sold without the bundle too ? Some of us don't really want all the goodies around ('cause that's a little bit cheating) neither throw something that has been bought away.

    Guar are so popular.

    And, having 5 Argonian characters, I am always tempted by anything related to the Saxhleel or Black Marsh.

    I have two questions (note they're questions, not digs or gripes!):

    1. I can't see the 5,500 Crown pack on the EU PSN....am I missing something there?
    2. The Crown Lessons don't seem to include Stamina - is that intended?

    "Black Fredas"? ...

    No words. :expressionless:

    Oh come on, it's fun. :)

    can you "Please" extend this sale untill the 3rd of dec. instead of the 1st of dec.?
    i get my paycheck on the 3rd and i want this stuff but i am broke till the 3rd.

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that the sale, including items, price, and duration, are negotiated and approved by the various parties (Microsoft, Sony, Valve, and Bethesda) well in advance of the actual sale. By the time we hear about it, it is set in concrete and that concrete is fully cured.

    Are you guys ACTIVELY trying to discourage subbing to the game?

    Yes, I think they are.

    I'm not subbed personally (anymore), but I must admit I'm considering it again since the updates seem to be regular and they are talking about a sub only crafting bag.
    I probably spend a little less in crowns than I would on the sub but that's only because there are not enough items on the store to lure me, I buy the stuff I want. And then I buy the DLCs.

    So my best guess is that ZoS is making more money off me non-subbed than subbed, especially if it goes like this: IC comes out at 3k crowns, Wroth at 3k, TG, DB, Murk all at 3k.

    Possibly, but maybe it is the other way around. They have a ton of subs and are looking to get them to buy crowns and special guars.

    To my knowledge you cannot buy Crowns through Steam anymore, so the Crowns work on both Steam and non-Steam versions of the game.

    Ah...so the 5,500 Crown pack is a new item then?

    I'm so used to seeing different items in the EU and NA PSN that I automatically assumed that EU were missing out on something.

    Note I wasn't looking for the reduced price, I was just looking for the actual Crown packs to get an idea of the $NZ cost.

    yep no worries! I'm in NZ as well, so its kinda hard to start buying the items until realising I have to wait 1 more day before it goes live in the U.S. to which I can start buying stuff.

    enjoy :)

    You forgot to factor IC and future DLCs

    Thanks for the reminder.. it means I need to keep 5500 Crowns in my game wallet at all times to actually buy those DLCs, (3000 Crowns for Orcsinium and 2500 for IC)

    See, if you think your ESO Plus BUYS the expansion, no.. it only grants you access for the month you rented it.

    So, ZOS refuse to implement the equivalent of real-world celebrations like Christmas due to their having no relevance to TES, something I entirely agree with.

    However, when it comes to a crass American commercial event they're more than happy to implement something game-related.

    Figured it out...the 5,500 pack doesn't show in the PSN store, unless you access it via the game.

    Very weird.

    They just do a sales as is the period run to christmas. Of course they aren't going to put Santas or Christmas trees in game.

    SWTOR looks ridiculous during the "life event" that takes place around Christmas.

    I know, right? Sales are bad. People hate sales. Discounted crown packs are so lore-breaking I just can't even. When roleplayers see it, they'll start leaving the game in droves.

    I would imagine that would be as many as you want. Since Crown Packs is ZOS' direct income source, they wouldn't restrict the sale to one pack per account.

    You can buy as many crown packs as you'd like. The only item that's limited to one per account is the bundle of items on the Crown Store.

    5500 Crown Pack will exactly cover cost of Imperial City DLC (2500 Crowns) + Orsinium DLC (3000 Crowns). 5500 Crowns costs $40 (in USA, at least), which will go down to $24 after 40% discount. So you can buy both DLC for the equivalent of $12 each. That is a great deal. Anyone who has been holding out on buying the DLC, now is the time to buy.

    I'm gonna purchase the crowns just to spend it on another DLCs that come up in the future (or on the Frostmare mount whose re-introduction to the crown store is my dream I wish to come true) >:) I'm so excited!
