When we change our Race, let us pick any race outside our faction including Imperials... PLEASE ZOS

I know the Imperial DLC is what gives you access to all races and imperial Race I believe, but why not let players change to ANY race if they're paying MORE than the actual DLC costs to change their race. I tried in the PTS when it first went up and noticed this issue so I don't know if it was chanegd.

Personally, I wont change any of my races if I can't switch to say Khajiit on my nord stamplar. I'm also not going to pay for the imperial DLC just to change my race to the race I want AFTER paying 3000 or so crowns just to change the race to begin with. Please tell me everyone agrees on this issue, there is no reason to force players to buy the DLC ontop of their race change just to pick the race they actually want to change to.

Edit: People saying "I paid for all races and I don't want you having it for free", It's not free the race change costs MORE than the dlc does.

    I believeOne Tamriel needs a lot more detailed explanation in accordance with the parlor crown options.

    Having paid for the option to pick any race regardless of faction should stay.

    I think that the issue is two parts, one...it's unclear but ...part two, the price and the absence of a faction change are of concern.

    Seems yet another half-azz done job on ZOS' part

    I don't care one way or the other... But...

    It's wouldn't be "freely given out" when people pay for the race change.

    Just unlock the package so you can play any race in any alliance and you can. Seriously doubt Zos would move around that.

    They already told us that it would not be so.. And it would be a bad signal to send to the players who actually paid for having the option of all races.. should we get free race changes then.?

    No chance really as people payed for it and it exists as a separate pack. The only way to do it is to refund everyone for it first and you can guess the chance of that.

    Give it to everyone, I got the Imperial Edition at launch and don't care if it is given away or not...

    Add it to race change as an unlock?

    I agree with OP should be able to choose any race with race change.

    13 of you don't understand the definition of free I'm guessing.

    You're paying more than the DLC costs to race change.

    Imperial Edition Upgrade gives you the Imperial Race. 2100 Crowns.
    Adventurer Pack (or an old Explorer's Pack code) gives you Any Race, Any Alliance. 1900 Crowns.
    Combined, they're 4000 total. You get more features for that 4,000 but none of the features are à la carte.

    The more you know duh duh duh duhhhh...

    You're already claiming a "half-azz" job by ZOS ... when the OneTamriel details have yet to be announced and are still months away?

    Really could use my LOL button right about now ...

    They should reduce the cost of tokens SIGNIFICANTLY instead. Hell, it costs half as much to buy an additional character slot. Just reroll a character and give him 9 pieces of training gear and level up in 12 hours tops

    So in that case for us who bought the pack earlier, we will be reimbursed the crowns then when buying a race change?
    Otherwise we have paid for something that you want for free.

    So in that case then for us who didn't buy the Imperial DLC specifically and we want to change our race to Khajiit from Nord, we have to stack another 1000-2000 crowns on top of that 3000 crown purchase to get the race change. Makes sense, I'm not paying for either in that case. :)

    Stop saying Imperial DLC, that's not what it is.

    To change your Nord to khajiit, it will be 1900 crowns for the any race, any alliance pack
    To change your Nord to imperial, then you need to upgrade your account with the "DIGITAL IMPERIAL EDITION"

    Go ahead and buy the IC DLC and be out 3k crowns so I can laugh at you

    I bought the Imperial Edition and the Any Race, Any Alliance so that I could start any new character I wanted in any alliance I wanted.

    If you want to pay 3k Crowns per race change to switch your character to a race that doesn't belong in that alliance, what do I care? It would cost you about $90 to have the characters I got for $30. I still got the better deal.

    But ZOS won't do it anyway, because they don't want to miss out on that $30 on top of the rest. That's why they won't sell alliance changes, either, because then how would they sell the Explorer's Pack?
    Why be normal when you can be better?

    I agree. Pay for that expansion if you want that feature. I have no problem with them offering a package containing Explorer pack or other such with it though.

    On a semi related note, what the hell is up with the adventurer pack info on the web page?

    Play in the Alliance of your choice, no matter the race!

    Ok i am with you so far... Next?

    Find buried treasure, and more!

    Umm what? There is no burried treasure in that pack, or more? All it does is as it says, play in the alliance of your choice no matter the race. Nothing else.

    Did someone in marketing say, well crap that is only one sentence. No one will pay 1900 crowns for one sentence. Put some other stupid crap there!

    "any race, any alliance" was free as long as you preordered on console. The Imperial race is only available with the "Imperial Edition". Both of which can be purchased in crown store now for minimal cost. Why would they tell one group of people they had to pay for something and then turn around and just give it away to another group? They will (and should) keep it as an extra feature available for extra cost.

    And if one of us were to decide to change a character to Imperial... then we'd have paid for both Imperial Edition -and- the Race change. We're still getting the short end of the stick.
