Am I only one who feels that this is, like, kind of overpriced? Even as an ESO Plus member, I feel like this would be a huge waste of crowns and money. I mean, okay, I might be able to understand why you don't want people to change their races all the time, but why would you do that for names and appearance? I'm sure I wasn't the only one who wanted to perfect his current characters with the help of the style parlour, but I don't think I'll be making any now.

With these prices, I'm kind of done with barber shop and it's not even come out yet. They teased it on ESO Live for months, now it only feels like a mindless cash-grab instead of a welcome feature.

    Actually expected race change to be 2500 but overall the prices are not far off from what I expected.

    Edit: hair styles is a one time purchase. After that you can swap the hair styles at will. Of course there are some new styles that need to be purchased individually but still a one time purchase.

    Not too bad, actually. Typical for most MMOs.

    Would've be nice if the barber shop idea actually went through, though.

    Was only ever interested in new hairstyles etc so it's all good for me.
    But are you really suprised the other stuff is expensive? Because the evidence to suggest otherwise has always been clearly visable.
    I think it's all still cheap considering what could have been.
    I mean they charge 5000 crowns for glass armor (per character)

    How do you all feel about the "unlimited hairstyles" bundle for 3500? You can change your hair to any style, any number of times.

    YIKES, that is a lot. 1000 for an appearance change is reasonable I suppose. 3000 for a race change is pretty high. I expected it to be high, but man, that's a lot. I was hoping it wouldnt be trivial to prevent people changing their race every month, but that is pretty prohibitive.

    What gets me most is 2500 for a name change. Are you *** Kidding me? That is insane. It literally takes nothing in terms of programming on their end. I had plans to rename all my toons to fit a theme, but no thanks. Not at that price.

    It would be great if they introduced some bulk options at least. Like rename your whole account for X amount of crowns. As it stands now, I might not do any of it.

    The name change price made me laugh out loud.

    This is what "large part of playerbase wanted"? Garbage content and wasted development time. Good.

    Crowns are different than tokens?

    So, I'm unable to use my ESO Plus crowns on the character change tokens?

    Of course I like steak. I'm a Nord, aren't I?

    You use the crowns to buy the tokens.

    I gotta say... name change 2500??????

    As a happy banker buyer, subscriber and lots more dumped into crown store above those... no way.

    I did not see even... is name change included in race chg? Or is changing "Named By Argonians" to "NewFurry-Dar" gonna run 6k?

    Like all crown store stuff, i buy what i want and ignore the rest but name chg out of bounds imo.

    They say they will have a race/name change bundle for 3500. Which is really more on target with what i would expect to pay for those 2 things.

    Considering it said hairstyles start at 200 crowns I can see me purchasing the bundle.

    Thank you.

    I failed to read the description properly in my blind rage of the single use, 1K fee for changing my characters appearance.

    :(
