    But as a subscriber the money is already spent, and since I have no need for any more mounts or motifs, it's only wasted money if I don't use it

    You can "station one at each decon and crafting station"?
    They dont work that way.You activate it like you activate a mount,and then when your done with them,deactivate them.You dont just leave them somewhere,come back and they are still there.

    Yeah, kinda backwards logic on that earlier post. Spend crowns on more fancy horses or fancy outfits when you can't wear them all at the same time and they all get played out, or on assistants that you can get value from for 5 years of gameplay. Add in the fact that you have a surplus of crowns due to subbing and it is a no-brainer.

    If these items were priced appropriately I would agree with you but buying crowns on sale or having a stack from ESO+ doesn't change the fact that 1 assistant is priced at $40. We've been over this point numerous times now. If you find the price reasonable then good for you but the majority of people seem to disagree.
    This is a feature we do still intend to do, but there are many other things taking priority so we don't yet have an exact update when this will be implemented.

    It does change it. For that person, the assistants were only ~$24 each. It doesn't matter what "regular price" is if you are making your decision knowing what it will cost you.

    Don't be surprised if it comes with a 5k crown price tag as well.

    Actually, let's stop calling this 5k crowns. Let's call this what it truly is. $40

    Sorry if I'm not clear what I am saying is it doesn't change the fact that Zos put these at that price.

    Um if you buy crowns via Zos store theyre only $40, its charged in AUD.

    I dont think it matters much how people feel. It matters how well they sell. If sales dont meet projections they will lower the price.

    I don't believe there will ever be a repair assistant because it would take income away from people buying Crown Repair Kits. Also, a Guild Trader assistant wouldn't help keep cities full of people... so I think ZOS wants to keep some 'reason' for players to actually travel to cities.

    We are glad to see everyone voicing their opinions in regards to the assistance. Now as this thread has become rather heated, we have removed a few posts for Flaming to help keep this civil and constructive.
    Flaming: It’s okay to disagree and debate on the official ESO forums, but we do ask that you keep all disagreements civil, constructive, and on-topic. If a discussion gets heated and turns into a debate, remember that you should stick to debating the post and/or thread topic. It is never appropriate to resort to personal comments or jabs about those participating in the thread discussion.

    But are you people actually TAKING NOTE of the sentiments here? This is GREED, pure and simple. Greed.

    Did someone say: 'Let's see how far we can fleece our players before they stop paying'?

    That price for full functionality, then maybe, yes, but for gimped services that you can get better in town? NO.

    They are a business out to make money. Greed is good.

    A business in a free market economy operates under the fair exchange concept, this entire argument/complaint from the community is that most feel this is not a fair exchange.

    And greed is NOT good, that's why Dante considered it one of the Seven Deadly Sins...
