    So first question: Will those previously retired and limited time offers include the long time subscriber mount pets and costumes?

    Second Question: Will the "chance to obtain rare and unique cosmetic items or mounts" be only available via the box and items we will never see anywhere else, in essence forcing us collectors to potentially gamble thousands of dollars to get said unique cosmetics or mounts?
    1. There will only be stuff from the Crown Store in the boxes. Anything from subscription and per-order will not be.
    2. From what I understand, there will be some cosmetics in the crates only, but there will still be stuff introduced and shuffled in the Crown Store.

    No, I believe it was confirmed that the loyalty rewards won't be in the crates, although some non-Crown Store promo stuff might.

    So there is no new DLC coming this Q4, just improvements of base game.

    Yep. That is correct.

    Well, I will certainly keep popping on here, but no new DLC allows me to play FF XV when it comes out. So, yay to that.
    Sweetrolls for all!

    Awesome article.

    I wanted to start a new character but the mere idea to have to redo King Eymeric stuff again made me kinda sick. With One Tamriel, I'll be able to start how I want and make up an entirely new personal story for my character. Looking forward to this.

    Any reason why it lacks so many details given the many threads from this weekend and mod comments would it not be possible to update this thread with more information specifics

    -scaled zone nodes
    -new transportation boat routes
    -wayshrine teleport limitations
    -travel to player limitations
    -details on how lower scaling was changed
    -activity finder updates
    -Craglorn nodes specifically for Nirnhoned
    Craglorn nirnhoned trait drops

    Save dueling for PAX. Ok

    @NewBlacksmurf Taking a wild guess here.. but I imagine they will have their usual "deep dive articles" and ESO Live's tailored toward specifics elements of said patch, so they're holding back on the first official article.

    You shouldn't have too much of a problem accruing the Crown Gems needed to get the new mounts then, assuming they'll be available in that manner. Non-whales who don't buy everything will have a much tougher time getting them and will end up filling their collection with all sorts of trash along the way.

    Yeah. The way it sounds is if you have the collectable you'll get Gems in return for it, and you can then outright purchase your desired item with the gems instead of continuing to gamble. So the system sounds like it's designed to reward people who missed out on older items without majorly punishing people who have purchased everything up until this point.

    Not to mention that it sounds like the only thing you're guaranteed from the boxes is a mix of consumables... So one out of every how many boxes will even have a mount/pet/costume even if it's not the one you actually want? Will the boxes be themed so that you know you're gambling for a mount vs a costume? (my guess is probably not)

    This is such an incredibly good patch coming, why would you spoil it with such a heinous, disgusting system as gambling boxes? Why are you having "seasons" of gambling-exclusive items? Why are you changing the way that your loyal customers can support the game? We don't want to gamble at a chance for cosmetic items, we want to buy them in the same manner we always have. Gambling boxes are a stain on this otherwise remarkable game!!

    And where you get that you won't be able to support the game the way you've always did? Most probably the unique cosmetic stuff will only be reskins of crown existing mounts or pets. Seriously you all should chill out before even knowing what will be gated and what won't.

    One Tamriel still a terrible idea. Allowing people to just jump to any content is just not how MMOs/RPGs really work.

    Also when you are trying to have warring factions one second you are group with a person next you're trying to destroy each other. I get Guilds, and Friends lists, but for just any random person out there is lame. How are the guards of cities going to react? Can Aldmeri just walk into Ebonheart, or will they have to raise their faction through quests or killing mobs like in Everquest. You can't say oh look at the huge war then just let people of other factions walk in and out of enemy cities....

    Hmmm.....If im in the USA and you are in Russia and we are at war....I can fly to Russia or take a boat there......I wont be stopped by guards unless I break the law.........

    Right?

    ok.
