    The evening suit looks interesting.

    I really want the scholar personality, I've been looking for something mage like for my DK for a while.

    The rest I'm not too interested in. The limited time on a house is interesting though... not too sure how I feel about that especially with what's going to be a very steep price.

    Limited time on the house most people were most excited by? I find that a bit shady as they are clearly thinking people will choose to buy it because they worry they will regret it. If they think it is a quality item they shouldn't need to use marketing tricks to sell it.

    I never expected anything less, to be honest.

    Add to that the High Rock Pioneer Outfit and I should be good in my quest to deplete my Crowns to zero.

    Expect to see the island in a future crown crate season with a ridiculously low drop rate.

    The island that everyone has coveted ever since housing was announced is only available for 5 days? That makes absolutely zero sense unless they want to use the island to drive crate sales.

    Sure, some folks will open their wallets that wouldn't otherwise have because of the limited time thing. But I can't imagine that they will outnumber those who would like to buy it but miss the 5 day window.

    ZOS wants both. By making it limited time, they spur a short-term cash infusion. Then, when they add it to the crates in the future, they get another huge cash infusion as people go crazy throwing hundreds of dollars at the crates trying to get the island.

    More RP costumes, yawn. Guess costumes that look like armour you'd fight in are a thing of the past or stuck in RNG crates. Really need to add the ability to modify the look of dropped gear sets so motifs are useful. On the plus side no need to buy and spend any crowns for another month.

    Interesting. The limited time "Island" furniture is all Argonian stuff anyone can make themselves. The Breton costumes and the rascal hair is about all I see myself getting.

    I play ESO since the early access, so over 3 years now, and it's my first rant: IMO, this is the worst showcase so far... Every month I wait for something to spend my crowns on, and every month it's getting worse. Black lion, really? Looks like a victim of a bush fire. Breton costumes... meh. The personality? Mildly interesting, I would pay around 900 crowns for it. The mansion is a last straw: for a limited time? Are you kidding, ZOS?
    How about you put all the stuff showed into the scam crates into the store, so I could buy that 1% items from it I want instead of 99% crap? How about rotating the previous merchandise, so I could buy the Bosmer dress I missed, and the Clouded Senche? How about fixing the banker and the merchant, so it would make sense to buy them? And again: why is the island available only for 5 days!!!!!
    After the scam crates went live I counted how much I would spend in the Crown Store, if the prices were reasonable and the merchandise was rotated: guess what, around 12.000 crowns. Now you will loose another 15.000 crowns (probably), because I wanted to buy the island together with my friend who is currently in a hospital and won't be able to log in for a looong time.
    Finally: why can't we have the Cave and the Island as a true Guild Halls? That would bring a huge value to the guild system, and a lot of monies for you, ZOS, because as a Guild Master I won't buy a 100$ place I can't properly share with my guildies, and it's not about the money.

    P.S. Btw, take that horrible bridle off from all the Senches finally! Why can't it be something similar to the wolf's saddle, or just a leash (reins?) around the neck? Believe me, no cat (virtual or not) would allow something like that around it's whiskers - especially not a proud lion...

    I'm with everyone else in regard to the limited time housing. Not purchasing 2 5500 Crown packs ($80) plus depleting the rest of my crowns to purchase this. But, we're guessing 15,000 Crowns, but it could be more since they tend to price limited items higher than their regular store counterparts.

    I'm happy to see some more male outfits in the store (though I only have 1 token male). I'm really hoping for Dunmer outfits with the launch of Morrowind.

    I have been waiting for Topical hideaway to be available, if it is 15000 Crowns I'd be able to squeeze it out. 5 day availability is setting off warning bells. I'm reluctant to get it now as I'm thinking perhaps something better is coming along to encourage people to spend goodness know how much to get enough crowns for it having depleted their reserves. Hmmmmmm

    The current highest house is at 13,000 crowns and most players thought they wouldn't go that high. They will keep raising prices when they see such high demand for specific house. Don't be surprised if that house is over 14,000 with or without being furnished.

    Count me among the "Strongly opposed to limited-time housing" crowd.

    On the other hand, I'll definitely snag the scholar personality.

    Same here, I want to know what's coming with Morrowind before I sink real $$ for the Island, I was planning on buying it for a Guildhall for our Meet & Greet parties.

    I hate limited time options, should be available to buy at anytime for players that Sub.
