    My guess is it's there but not published to the general public yet. Easy mistake to make, depending on what framework your website is running on.

    @Abeille I want all the goats like you want black hair :'( This is terrible.

    I'm very sorry. Maybe in the free crate that came with Morrowind's preorder?
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    You said that last time, and yet there were four new poison cards in the Common category that were in Wild Hunt crates and not Storm Atronach. Are you sure that there are no changes to Fine and Common?

    I can't believe they locked the hero armors behind this awful system.

    Hero armor was already available for direct purchase. Everything returning to the store, of that variety, will be in Crates. Otherwise, no one will buy them.

    As someone who had everything out of the prior two crates, i intended on doing the same here. However, those exclusively crate non gem buyable mounts....not happy.

    "In addition to the Apex rewards listed above, you may also reveal one of these very rare mounts, which are currently only obtainable as a reward from a Dwarven Crown Crate:"

    Do you mean gamble now get lucky but in a few weeks/months we can just buy them flat out? This desperately needs clarity. RNG crates were a slippery slope already, one i was tolerant of, but i guess my tolerance was taken advantage of :(

    I propose the Annual-Mega-Ultra-Apex. Each Season you can get one token - only in the crate of course - and after four tokens ... one year - you can assemble/fuse the mount!

    Never has anything been more exclusive!

    It means you cannot exchange crown gems for them, but they are leaving their options open and not saying one way or another whether they will ever be available in any other way.

    Yea, no.

    New, or returning players that missed getting the first time, will buy them.

    Excited I pulled the Adamant Dwarven Horse (pictured) from my bonus Morrowind crown crate. It's probably quite literally the only thing I would have gambled for in these crates. And yes, I love it. It's my favorite, all-day mount.

    Haters gonna hate.

    I know that, i don't enjoy the idea they may be limited to the crates or they may show up later. As someone who obsessive compulsive completionist having this just is frustrating.

    @Abeille it's getting increasingly difficult for me D:

    I was lucky most things I needed to complete my characters were released before crates were a thing. Now it is more like, "oh I would have impulse-bought it but since it is locked in a crate then I guess I'll keep my crowns". That's the case with the braided hair style. It doesn't really fit my characters but I like braids.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Yeah, as if it wasn't enough that some people spend literally hundreds of dollars on this sham, they now made it even worse for them. I know that it's only cosmetic reskins and whatnot, but I really hate the idea that something you might want is locked behind a lottery system. I mean it could be a neat idea to have on the side, if it was still possible to buy things individually, like maybe having the mounts be 2.5k crowns, but then you you buy 4 boxes for 1.5k and get lucky. I know that the gems sort of let you do that, but you do have to invest into the lottery bs in first place to get any <.< I think it's incredible how this exploitive system is still here though, but I guess with them also charging a separate fullgame price for the Morrowind dlc they won't let up and will just continue down the path of money > happy customers.
