1500 crowns on the next DLC, Opinions?

The next DLC, Shadows of the Hist, is reported to be 1500 crowns. All this DLC contains is 2 dungeons with a norms and Veteran mode and no alternate story mode (unless I'm wrong), equivalent to IC Dungeons.

What are your opinions on this folks?

Mine is that the price point is a bit high. If I compare it to IC, if WGT & ICP were 1500 crowns, then IC, the sewers, the telvars, the story quest, & collectable are equivalent to 1000 crown? That seems flipped from the value I'd assign. The dungeons are large, but only reward 6 sets & 2 dungeon helms, with no new crafting sets either. At my price point, I feel this should be around 1250 to 750 crowns, compared to the content and benefits of the other DLC.

The dungeons are large and we'll done from what I've seen, I just feel the benefit for the cost is out of whack when you compare the rest.

    Is the gear from the new content BoP or BoE?

    Probably better value for money to subscribe for 1 month, do the dungeons, dye your costumes how you want them and then unsub and you'll have some crowns you can spend.

    If the dungeons are enjoyable and challenging enough on vet mode to keep people busy for a couple hours at first, totally worth it.

    I mean, it's about the price of a movie ticket. I'm sure I'll spend more than 2 hours in those dungeons.

    I am considering this too. I was going to sub for a month anyway to dye all of my costumes and if I find the dungeons to be fun enough to repeat after the month then I'll buy them with the crowns I get from subbing.

    BoP (as per ESO Live), but you will be able to trade gear that you get within your group while inside the dungeon.

    I'm subscribed so it doesn't necessarily affect me (so I feel I can be an objective 3rd party) but this is what I'd recommend to most folks also. I can't see it being worth while to buy this ala carte at this price.

    You will also have to accept giving up 2 days of gold keys per rotation if you don't have the dungeons though.

    With the price of a 5500 pack at $39.95, this makes the DLC around $11 US. Not bad for two new dungeons for people to run and try out over and over again. People pay A LOT more for mounts than this....

    The DLC is at least confirmed 1500 in the patch notes
    If you do not have an active ESO Plus membership you can purchase the DLC Dungeon Pack for 1,500 crowns via the in-game Crown Store.

    Looking at the price point is a misleading indicator, at times, since you can't tell of everyone buys in bulk, got their crowns on sale, or only purchased a few updayes. This means you may be spending 11 to 15 dollars. It feels the better indicator would be the other DLC prices, which seems they got a lot more in just half of its full content.

    Only IC had dungeons included, as stated, and was 2500. With that it included a full zone, new sets, new crafting g sets, new motifs, new collectables, story quest, etc.

    Neither one brought new skill lines or classes to the table.

    It's less than the previous DLCs but does seem a little high for two dungeons and a personality. Yes, people do pay more for a mount. But it makes me wonder if they are resetting our expectations about what DLC packs should cost (will cost in the future) with this update.

    I'm biased, but I would pay them 1,500 crowns for each dungeon.

    Since Orsinium each DLC has had less and less, but the price has also come down. Also, since it's only 1500, it makes sense to sub a month, clear half you inventory into the bags, dye your costumes, and decide if you want to own this one permanently or not and save 1500 crowns for other stuff.

    I do like dungeon runs. I'd really like to see some raids be added. If it comes bundled with some other piece of DLC I could see myself paying 1500 crowns.

    Sure, the pricing comparatived to other DLC might seem a bit high; but in retrospect to the amount of time I will spend clearing the dungeons I still feel it is a good value. This update focuses a lot on aspects to the game that are not specific to the DLC, such as costume dying and scaling trials, that I very much appreciate. Because of this, I am more than willing to accept a smaller DLC.

    To be honest, I would much rather them continue to release small DLC with a large focus on prior released content (such as expanding on cyrodil with town capturing systems or released veteran versions of existing dungeons) than to neglect prior content and focus entirely on an expanded zone.

    While I partly agree, I'm pretty satisfied with Vet AA, Vet Hel Ra, Vet Sanctum, and Vet Maw

    That's just the regular price for the 5500 Crown pack. Even at $15 imo it's a decent value. It's a much better deal than the mounts that cost 4k Crowns for sure. With a mount, you don't have any opportunity to make game gold from it as any BOE sets that drop from those dungeons can be sold for game gold. That's if they are BOE that is.....

    Marketing strikes again. They priced it so you would be more likely to buy the bundle than the individual dungeon pack.

    Guar's probably going to be 1300 crowns sold by itself. Turtle pet 700 like the cave bear and dragon frog. Scrolls basically a free bonus.

    That would put the actual DLC appropriation at around 1,000 crowns as with the bundle you'd get 500 off either the mount or the pet.

    But ZOS has to make money somehow. I can say that now that I'm in the Cult of ZOS, right?

    Too much for just two dungeons. I won't be buying this DLC. I prefer actual zones with quest related content like Wrothgar.
    Far too many characters to list any more.

    It might actually work the other way around. Buy the new guar and turtle pet with some scrolls, and get two dungeons for free!

    Honestly, I'll rather pay 1500 crowns for two dungeons than buy TG or DB DLCs.

    That being said, when the SotH DLC comes out, the recap of three newest DLCs will be:
    • 2 small maps with 2 world bosses
    • 2 guild skill lines and storylines
    • 1 trial
    • 2 group dungeons

    ZOS, is this everything you can come up with in 9 months time?
    What the hell are you focusing your resources on?
    How much time does it take to re-skin a panther mount?

    I think it should have been 1000 Crowns, but I'm not overly bothered by it.
