    My one question (which is NOT answered in the article) is:

    Can I have one character with both the burn scars/body AND the dragon tattoo?
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella.
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (for my goblin characters, I use either orsimer or bosmer templates) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm. He also irritated the Prophet who had intended the portal for only Mol and Lyris.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    Ugh. I know they want to dis-incentivize frequent name changes, but ouch. Glad I got the names I wanted during early access.

    Unless you plan on buying every last adornment this does not seem too bad.

    Thanks for the link Gina.

    Worth noting at the bottom of the article, 3500 crowns to change ALL of your character, so thats Race (which includes ALL appearance changes), and Name Change. So if someone wants to change everything on their character, you'll save money by going with that bundle.

    Personally, I just want to touch up my appearance, so will be going with the 1000 crown one. :)

    Appearance and the premium styles are okay I suppose with pricing but Race and Name is extremely expensive, especially for people looking forward to finally changing their stuff around, but they may not be able to do so due to the high pricing. At the very least, they should discount it maybe for a short time?

    A limited-time discount would be nice, and if these things cost gold I bet we would get exactly that. However, there is no universe where ZOS management is going to walk away from the big pile of race-change cash that is waiting for them in August.

    My character's appearance changed permanently in game due to a bug. I'm glad I can finally fix it, but I am miffed at the price

    I like the combo offer, it looks like they want to discourage too many changes (like name) yet I think the prices are about 500 crowns too high.

    No word on how much they want for the base game hair pack, but they gave the price for everything else.

    My guess is like 4000 Crowns, since it has 90+ hair styles in it (an 18000 Crown value! ...ahem)

    So it will only cost me about 28000 crowns to make all the changes I want to make with my characters? That's what, like $200...

    The fact that you guys have the nerve to only letting us re style our characters by paying with real life money is bad and greedy enough, but the fact that a name change is not included in race change is even worse then that.... Just watch, zenimax will do the same thing for housing when it comes around. You want that special house in your favorite zone? 5k crowns. Oh you didn't like the door type that the house came with? that'll be 1k crowns more please. Zenimax has no idea what consumer goodwill is. You lost mine, i hope it was worth the extra money it earned you. And i wouldn't be suprised if it was.

    @MyNameIsElias - Just to point out that you can get them in a bundle that includes the race and name change for 3500 Crowns. That makes the name change 500 Crowns.

    Appearance Change is reasonable. The other's are too rich for my blood. Especially the name change one.

    I think the appearance change is a bit much. I would have liked to see it more in the 750 Crown range, just to get rid of the "4 digit" stigma. I would have REALLY liked it if they had stuck it in the game for gold, but I guess we get a "hair stylist" in the game for "free" with the purchase of a hair pack, available for an undisclosed cost.

    As for the Race and Name change, I consider those to be Premium services. Around $30-35 for a race/appearance/name change is certainly in line with that.

    I have a level 4 ish Khajiit with all the mount skills maxed out, I wanted to change her hair, her fur and her name but I'd rather delete her as she is low level and wait to max my mount skills again with 45k gold than paying 3500 crowns. lol

    Race/appearance change is 4 x more expensive than in FFXIV, wow...

    There is a lot of things I dislike about FFXIV but at least we can change our make up, our hair style and color (no sex, race, eyes color, skin color, voice, just things you could REALLY change by going to a "barber shop") in game with gold, that's something that should be added in my opinion: a limited appearance change for in game gold, very immersive.

    As for name change... it's 3 x more expensive than in FFXIV. But as FFXIV has a mandatory subscription fee, I guess it's just fair that they have to pay less than in a buy to play game and ESO Plus subscribers have crowns that they can save to buy those tokens.

    Yet, I miss Galathil. >_>

    Whoops, that was just an oversight! The hair style pack containing all hair styles from the base game will be 1000 crowns.

    Awesome. I guess I was a smidgeon high. This is why I do not play Price is Right.

    @lordrichter

    We used to get Name changes for the cost of submitting a trouble ticket, which was free.

    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    200 Crowns per each premium hairstyle, adornment, etc.

    3500 Crowns for a Complete change (first 3 listed). Best value (due to pricing) if considering to buy the Race or Name change.

    Not sure why these prices are that high, but not a fan of them at ALL.

    Some of this I understand the price, but the Name Change...that is utterly ridiculous. Sorry but that is an outrageous price for a change of letters.

    Is not just about changing letters, its a balance to prevent the constant changing of names.
