    I'm hoping we might see a bit more information on these Hist Guars. Very weird for an entire subspecies to have the markings.

    Oh look, they're getting rid of some of the better costume packs... Color me NOT surprised, once again. Zeni, I have in my mind defended so many of the things you do in the interest of business but this has turned scummy beyond belief.

    Ok, I was pretty disappointed in ZOS' pricing for character tokens... until someone told me about the crown sale going on. That was exactly the kind of thing I was hoping they would do, and once again I have to take back all the nasty, hurtful things I said about them.

    Thank you, ZOS.

    I do not like any of the bear mounts because they are NOT based on lore. If it is not based on LORE, then the items should NOT be in game.

    It isn't in the lore? At this point, the only thing that would make it against lore is if some parchment or book said that bears were never used as mounts. Aside from that, bears are one of the few mount options that probably are fine with the lore. The really odd beasts are the ones I would worry about. Dragons. Wamasu. Welwa. Mammoths. Stuff like that is what I worry about.


    Not that I own any bear mounts. The animation makes them look like a very uncomfortable ride. I don't own any dog mounts, either, for a variety of reasons.

    There really isn't much in the Crown Store this month, but it is almost certain that the "limited time only" prices will be on the spendy side. Waaaaaay on the spendy side. Especially the costume. Skin sells.

    That Haj Mota Hatchling would be awesome if it was a mount :)

    Overall seems a decent showcase for August will most likely be purchasing the personalities on the 16th.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno @ZOS_JessicaFolsom Do you all see how many people want the Sep Adder pet!! When is this going to come out, we've been waiting for months. You guys gave us a taste of this unique and awesome pet on PTS and then you proceed to give us re-colored Nixad and other mammals instead of this unique snake pet. We want Seppie and we want him NOW!! ;)

    Any chance we can get a video preview of the new personalities? I've been excitedly waiting for more to be added since seeing the assassin one so I'm very excited to see what these will be like. I'm on Xbox one sadly.

    With all the Masked Bears that will be in game it will be Pandæmonium...

    And yeah all the short characters need a way to reach higher shelves, they all need their Sep Adders...
    Or was that sTep Ladders?

    This is the wait 22 days for the listed items and get told nothing of the ones that will pop up unannounced, just like last months Alliance Motifs.

    I wonder which ones they will try to sneak in this time.

    Anyway would be nice if the costume collectables could be split listed 3 ways:
    1. Clothing - Brocade Robes, Various Dresses, etc.
    2. Armors - Costumes with an Armor theme: Ordinator, Lion Guard, etc.
    3. More Hats - Hats from Costumes with hats.
    Especially the 3rd item, as there are several costumes with hats that would look good as a hat in combination with another costume.

    the only thing you should add to a "buy now for limited time" box, is old stuff on discount.
    Giving newer players a chance to own things cycled out of stock.

    I've yet to even contemplate what is in that limited box at all.

    So how long IS the crown sale going on? I don't recall seeing it announced anywhere.

    Unless, of course, this is your new crown pricing and the change is permanent...

    Please advise!

    @k9mouse What are you talking about, bear mounts have been in the lore since like 2009.

    I can't even find the sale being announced. I bought my crowns today as to not miss it though.

    Enjoy the new offerings, although sad to see more things go than what we are getting new.

    Thank god I purchased the ashlander and ordinator packs this past week, I didn't even know they were going to be removed. They are removing two of the better outfit sets in order to make room for some lame stuff. the ashlander and ordinator sets were two of the more interesting race themed sets. How about some dunmer bonemold armor from skyrim if you must remove all the dunmer outfits....at least then your circulating something fresh into the mix.

    The crown store sale is on PS4 too, even though we don't have the DLC yet. It says it'll end on the 8th of August.

    No new hairstyles and not the bodymarkings I wanted.. Booo! Guess I'll wait until the next patch before creating my new character. In the meantime I'll continue with my Dishonored playthrough in preparation for Dishonored 2.
