ZOS_JessicaFolsom
Our latest ESO Crown Store offering is wrapped in mystery. How does it make those who wear it look like their very skin is created from swirling, otherworldly Ebony? There are only rumors. Will the Ebony Epidermis become your new look?

Ebony Epidermis Skin

Never trust an alchemist with a Daedric scroll—you might end up with skin that's the color and hardness of Ebony! Unless you think that's a good idea, in which case, we've literally got you covered.

The Ebony Epidermis is available on all platforms for a limited time from August 10 to August 14 at 10am EDT, and costs 1,200 crowns.

Has the Ebony Epidermis caught your eye? Post your pictures here, or share them with us on Twitter or Instagram.

    Agreed. I was HYPED for this skin when I saw it showcased but rather disappointing after viewing it today. It even looks worse on console (if that is possible). Price isn't too bad. I would have gladly paid 1500,2k even if the skin was as awesome as they showed in promotional image. False advertisement...such is the way at Zo$. At this point, we should just be happy it isn't bugged like most other things the company releases... :p :p

    Later Edit: I spoke too quickly it appeared... Preview may be bugged, I jinxed it. I should have known they couldn't release something without SOMETHING being bug'd.

    The promotional image looked... shinier and nicer. Must've been all that color-coordinated fog in the background. In-game, it looks exactly like a recolored Spiderkith.

    It looks exactly like a recolored spiderkith skin in the promo too, it's just got different lighting on it.

    Mods are locking complaint threads for damage control. Lol
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.

    Personally I never understood why there is a need for four threads on the same topic. I've seen merging of threads in other forums but I guess that's not possible here.

    There are a couple of the "complaint" threads that are still open and running anyway, because they are being civil and/or constructive about their issue with the skin. The one that got closed was just mouthtrash and bashing the devs. Mojmir is just being a dramallama.

    Oh yeah, I just think in general the feedback would be best served in this ... well ... official thread. Best exposure, no? Especially if there is displaying bugs etc as well.

    There wasn't one until after,this happens everytime/all the time. Call it drama if like,not everyone is prim and proper when they're disappointed.look around the forums and you'll find plenty of the same,but yet those threads are open still.

    Does wearing this skin increase my housing item size by 500 slots?

    Yup.. that's what I would want to know as well. When will we hear about housing item slot increases instead of crown store skins that apparently, do not look as advertised??

    Deceptive lighting to give artificial purple shine. ZO$ Marketing on their game as usual.

    I'm really disappointed that ZOS doesn't invest more time and effort in crown store offers like this. The promotional picture looked really promising but I was already afraid it's just a recoloring. Sad to see I was right.

    I thought the promo pictures made it obvious enough it was a recolor..
    Not to mention the NPC in the game that looks like this
    And the datamining...

    Yes. Pictures from it on live are rather disappointing. Boring.
    Really, I don't know.

    I do like the look on Argonian tails. I have been waiting forever to dye my weapons purple, but in the meantime I'll gladly turn my skin purple.

    It's looking good! You can use it with costumes and still shows through. Looks great on Argonian and quite nifty on Khajit also. I spent too much time making my Khajit tiger looks so not on him.

    A laugh a day keeps the Crown Crates away! :
    A Khajiit and a Wood Elf Walk up to a market stall.

    The Khajiit whisks three rabbit pasties into his pocket with lightning speed.
    The baker doesn't notice.

    The Khajiit says to the Wood Elf:
    "You see how clever this one is? You will never beat that!"

    The Wood Elf says to the Khajiit:
    "Watch this, a Wood Elf is always cleverer than a Khajiit."

    He then says to the baker,
    "Give me a rabbit pasty, I can show you a magic trick!"

    The baker gives him the pasty which the Wood Elf promptly eats.
    Then he says to the baker:
    "Give me another pasty for my magic trick."

    The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too.

    Then he says again:
    "Give me one more pasty... "

    The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. The Wood Elf eats this one too.

    Now the baker is really mad, and he yells:
    "And where is your famous magic trick?"

    The Wood Elf says:
    "Look in the Khajiit's pocket!"

    Same Issue: The limited ebony skin looks different in preview to actual.

    On my Dunmer Vampire the preview shows her irises in front of the glow and it looks awesome...
    Screenshot_20170810_202859.png

    In actuality the skin makes the eyes pure purple...Screenshot_20170810_202933.png

    Ugh, why can't we ever get an eye option like the preview, we have blind oracle eyes so why not a glow one like in the preview instead of a solid color as seems to be the case with most skins.

    That would be the only case I would buy this thing.
    My thread about Crates has been moved very fast from the General section, the "what did you get from your crates" thread is still in the General section. It's a fact. Easily verifiable.
