    I might have missed this, but I thought that the Nord costumes from the cinematic trailer were supposed to come out today or tomorrow as well?

    I would like to see a mount you could use in the water. Espically since only the Argonian is the only race that can swim fast. Maybe the loch monster from Scotland, That would be cool!

    The bears... again?! Why don't you bring back the Frostmare mount since many of us, who joined the game after it was introduced for the first time, would love to have the possibility to buy it now...

    Is the Psijic Domino Pig a re-skin of the Bristlegut Piglet? Or is it a new design?

    I'm still trying to understand what about the Bristlegut Piglet is a "piglet". I was expecting a cute lil' teacup pig or something similar, as I'd always thought piglets were baby pigs, but that's the whole hog. Or is it? Just how big do Bristlegut pigs get?

    Why do all the bear mounts have such strangely long necks? They're bears, not camels. Here's one up close:



    ZOS should go on a field trip to go see some bears once they're done hibernating.

    Pretty unimpressed that the bears are back already, and the lack of costumes. Where's the Mind-Shriven skin? Where's the Frost Mare? Come on now.

    Does that new costume also inflates the characters' rib cage like the last 5 female costumes that were added to the store? And clip with Khajiit and Argonian claws?

    Is anyone in ZOS's art team aware that this is happening? Is this ever going to be fixed?

    The pig is cute though.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    Did the image of the bear cub's background remind anyone else of the Reach?

    Something to do with the mix of flora and mountains with the fog that reminded me of it.

    The pig is cute though.

    I'm guessing the new costume will also triple the size of my female toons chests, since it's the third in the series of Redguard costumes. I had wondered why they renamed the lavender/purple costume to Whisperweft, as it was originally named Song of the Night in the announcement (which has since been updated).

    I agree about the pig - haven't purchased that many pets, but will probably pick up this one. I already purchased the snow bear cub, so will probably pass on the black bear cub.

    I have no interest in the bear mounts due to how clumsy they and their riders look. Also, can we PLEASE fix the stupid "run/dance/whatever" on your mount bug? It's bad enough to see people doing this on tigers and horses, but when I see it on a bear, I feel like I'm at the circus!

    Yes, both of these issues should be fixed in our next major update.

    I also discovered a noticeable increase of buttocks size on my male character when I 'tried' on the costumes. While quite fabulous, I'm unsure of why his proportions were altered through wearing female gender oriented redguard clothing. Is this as unintended as the increase in rib cage?
