    IT has a Freaking Cape and everything. Can't wait to see it in action.

    Don't get hopes look closely its just basically a trench coat.. zos more than likely removed the cape since they removed the elven heroes scarf and the nord herps on should cape...

    I am curious where the consistency is in the development team? (or whomever is in charge of the agenda/schedule/overall final decisions)

    -Remove things in the store all together?....why not make a new bundle at a reduced price or even put the items into the in game loot system for stealing to sometimes get a new costume at an exceedingly rare rate.

    -The price fluctuation for items (the 'cool' or 'popular' is ALWAYS the one they price the highest even if it wasn't at first) is also a very unnerving factor into why I have a difficult time actually paying real life money for crowns.

    -What is the overall plan/agenda of the development for this game and where is it going? And why? Can we have those answers at least? (not to be cynical, but I ask this in a professional manner)

    "Desert Garden Gala Overdress" Where is that? I'm in game looking at the crown store now... and don't see it.

    It's on the PTS. Not in game yet, which is odd that they'd be removing it in that case.

    So, it's on PTS. Not in game, and NOT in the article to come during July?

    How they could be removing that is interesting. lol I'm also a bit sad about stuff coming and going in the same month. To me those are "Limited Time Offers" that just have a bit longer window.

    I assume it is a typo? Maybe the costume actually being removed Aug. 1st is Whisperweft Gala Wear?

    So is the doom wolf gonna be 4000 crowns also or we gonna be fair and reasonable like when the fire frost and sheiven horses came out... cuz that dro matha crown cost was an absolute abomination....

    I honestly hope it won't be 4000c. That was what stopped me and a friend from getting the Dro m'athra mount.
  • tap3ahchinaeb17_ESO
    Wait, so the Priest of the Green costume is being made available and removed in the same month? Or is that a typo?

    That is correct in this case.

    OK, but there are still 2 non-existing entries in this list:
    - Desert Garden Gala Overdress - apparently datamined from PTR
    - Blue Nixad - did you mean Turquoise Nixad

    In defense of the Dro Mothra, it also had a completely new mount animation along with additional animation graphics... so it wasn't just a 're-colored' it had additional effects that took extra time for the development team.

    I really hope that Breton Hero costume will only be available once.
    If they plan to sell it again in a later date, it significantly lower it's value, since many more players will wear it.
    It needs to be unique.

    That mount must be a top seller as its the picture they use on the front page when you go to buy your crowns.

    I would love to see timers on things expiring from the Crown Store so I don't accidentally miss out on things again.

    Having items from the past make a reappearance in the crown store would be nice too!

    Not sure how you would feature this, but would also love to see items go on discount from time to time. I'm a frugal bargain shopper! In fact, sometimes I just can't resist a sale. XD (See below. wink wink)

    Merchants Festival - July 10th!
    The bargain shoppers of the known world are out in force today and it is little wonder, for the 10th of Sun's Height is a holiday called the Merchants' Festival. Every marketplace and equipment store has dropped their prices to at least half. The only shop not being patronized today is the Mages Guild, where prices are as exorbitant as usual. Most citizens in need of a magical item are waiting two months for the celebration of Tales and Tallows when prices will be more reasonable...

    They use a promo image of the Blacksmith Apron as well even though it was removed months ago. Most likely that page just hasn't been updated since the release of Tamriel Unlimited.

    Zenimax, please clarify fully what is being removed and when, as others have pointed out many items are still only on PTS and not even LIVE yet. If you're a collector, this is disturbing and annoying.

    I am in total agreement for having a "legacy items" store, heck, nevermind crowns just make it straight up cash and be done with it. Let people who have the money pay full price when an item hits but then make it available for the patient and/or new players who don't want to feel left out.

    False scarcity is annoying.

    I think they just made the Pack Leader Werewolf Transformation morph ended up giving us our Wolf "Pets" in a sense, and they just scale it to character to make it double as mounts.

    Notice the fur of the wolves Pack Leaders spawns randomly are all those of the three wolf mount variants not presently available? Yeah... I'm worried if we'll ever get any Collectibe Wolf pet now... /downcast

    I would also like to know why a re-color of an existing pet (Nixad) is added to the Crown Store before a pet that has never been added, a snake pet (Sep Adder) is added?!?

    Honestly ZoS, i know you have to report to shareholdes "this is what we are gonna do to take their money" and go on a speech about how people will always buy limited time junk.

    But don't you ever think about the longevity of the game? what good is a one time limited item if you keep ignoring issues while peddling this and neglecting the fun factor?

    a one time cost or a stream of cash, your choice. but as more and more people will leave over the neglect of the game, the dryer the stream goes. 7million players, 6m, 4m, 2, 500k. It's so easy to get recognised as "that game studio who can't keep a game running". Wouldn't you rather be "that game studio who outdid many of the others" ?

    money, or money and integrity. Your choice, bleed us dry, or earn our love and money. Reputation is something worth more than money.
