    Anyone else notice that the PC release date has been put back to the 31st of June? I hope that's just a typo... but then I suppose one never knows when an assassin will appear!

    Still think this should be renamed "The Shadow" and all future personalities themed to the other constellations as per this largely unnoticed thread I made last week.
    https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/266565/re-personalities#latest
    Please make them relate to the constellations. I don't mean make them obtainable through the Mundus stones, but rather just name them after the constellations of the Tamriel and have those personalities be thematically linked. In the Elder Scrolls world, the Constellations correlate to a birth sign, much like the zodiac in our own astrology, and these links relate to a persons personality; which makes this wholly appropriate. Admittedly, this would require renaming the one we're already getting, but that's such a minor change in order to create a really cool link between a game feature and the world itself.

    For instance:

    The Shadow (Assassin) -- The Shadow would take the place of the Assassin personality slated for release with Dark Brotherhood.

    The Mage -- Is, well a Mage. He's confident and opinionated but he's got better things to do than associate with the common rabble.

    The Lord -- The Lord is more refined than your average adventurer. He is well versed in etiquette and culture. He's proud and stately but not above kindness. He can be spotted tossing coins to beggars in order to make them go away.

    The Lover -- The Lover is a seductress. She makes the boys uncomfortable because while she's alluring she knows what she wants and plays by her own rules.

    The Ritual -- The Ritual is secretive a covetous. Like the Mage, he knows he his powerful, but he hides within himself. His knowledge is his own.

    The Thief -- Is similar to the Shadow, but more laid back, less weapon oriented. Less menacing.

    The Atronach -- The Atronach is, well the Atronach is surprisingly down to earth. He's just a regular Joe trying to get by.

    The Tower -- The Tower is stalwart and stoic. He stands up straight, chest out, shoulder back. He is a bastion of strength and power.

    The Lady -- Is the more effeminate version of the Lord. Courtly and courteous, she's nurturing but authoritative. Respectful and respected.

    The Warrior -- The Warrior is a grizzled veteran. He's the mercenary. He's seen some sh!t and has a dozen war stories he could tell at the drop of a hat.

    The Apprentice -- The Apprentice is like the Mage, but more humble, studious. He has questions rather than answers, which makes him friendly and outgoing.

    The Steed -- The Steed is the athlete. Ready to go at a moments notice. Nothing makes them happier than getting up early and going for a run. Their idle animations would involve lots of stretching and moving about; like a jogger waiting on a crosswalk. They're insufferable.


    In all, I think sticking to the constellation theme for personalities would not only provide a wide array of choices for players, but also help prevent the drift I'm starting to see from incredibly unique MMORPG, to just-another-fantasy-RPG. A small detail which would bring ESO back to it's Elder Scrolls roots.

    PAWS - Positively Against (W)rip-off Stuff - Say No to Crown Crates!
    PC/EU DC
    A laugh a day keeps the Crown Crates away! :
    A Khajiit and a Wood Elf Walk up to a market stall.

    The Khajiit whisks three rabbit pasties into his pocket with lightning speed.
    The baker doesn't notice.

    The Khajiit says to the Wood Elf:
    "You see how clever this one is? You will never beat that!"

    The Wood Elf says to the Khajiit:
    "Watch this, a Wood Elf is always cleverer than a Khajiit."

    He then says to the baker,
    "Give me a rabbit pasty, I can show you a magic trick!"

    The baker gives him the pasty which the Wood Elf promptly eats.
    Then he says to the baker:
    "Give me another pasty for my magic trick."

    The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too.

    Then he says again:
    "Give me one more pasty... "

    The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. The Wood Elf eats this one too.

    Now the baker is really mad, and he yells:
    "And where is your famous magic trick?"

    The Wood Elf says:
    "Look in the Khajiit's pocket!"

    You have only 12 constellations so they would be limited when doing them. And you don't have stars like "crazy beggar" or "drunk nord" :P

    I came to this post to have the personality explained (I don't touch PTS, fyi) and still nothing. Wtf is it? A special set of emotes? Something that's in a tab like Costumes and Mementos? Would have enjoyed more than a 'Learn about the Assassin Personality, a new way to make your character unique in Dark Brotherhood!' line and only a video showing me of some guy flipping a dagger around. Not much learning about it if you ask me.

    Edit: Seriously, I'd love to know because my worst case scenario is it's like disguises and thus takes up space in your bags.

    I know what it does, I want to know how it's implemented. So does it have it's own tab? Is it in the costumes tab? The Mementos tab? Is it something like disguises that is an item that takes up space in your inventory that needs to be equipped and taken off? I full on understand the 'intrigue' of keeping it mum but a simple 'Assassin Personality, first in line of the new Personality tab.' in the main post would clear up my confusion over how it's going to be implemented in game especially with how close they are to releasing the DLC. Showing me a video with little context of the loyalty reward doesn't add incentive to me about buying the dlc.

    Try posting/searching in the PTS Server Forum. They have access to the personality, maybe someone there is able to answer your questions. Not sure, but there may already be a post on it .....

    @Argruna

    The Costume Tab in the collections will become an Appearence Tab.
    It will have sub categories:

    Costumes
    Skins
    Polymorphs
    Hats
    Personalities

    Except for the Polymorphs, you will be able to use one of each of the other appearence collectibles at the same time. And the Personalities, specifically, can be used with any collectible including Polymorphs.
    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.

    I'm curious, are there any confirmed emotes that have been changed? I have tested it a little, but the only one I see changed are /eat3 and /leanback. The teaser didn't show other emotes either. I was curious if that was it or if I missed any.

    From what I understand, you are supposed to carry the dagger around, yes? Every character I see (including my own when it was activated) has no dagger in his hand, but just holds his hand open like it's supposed to be there. When a character flips it or plays with it, i can see that, but then it disappears when it goes back to their side. Is it supposed to be like that? I thought I saw on one of the videos that characters will walk around holding it the whole time.

    I totally agree and I hope this will reach developer ears, but you forgot something. The Snake, I suppose this last constellation should have a malefic air about it. Something suited for an evil type of character, weather a psycopath killer or ingenious mastermind perhaps?
