    They'll probably close this thread as well because of spiraling.

    Yeah, it is pretty obvious at this point that the price is set high to preserve costume revenue and will not be changing.

    I don't get why people are defending corporations and practices like that. The item is ridiculously priced and it's description is misleading. Those people "whining" are doing that in your interest too. If they succeed and something get's changed you'll end up getting a better service too.

    LoL.
    I'm not "defending" anyone.
    I'm just laughing at the sight of people who spend hours/days/months and now YEARS complaining over and over for something they think is "overpriced", when the solution to the problem is as simple as "don't buy".
    All you achieve by insisting so thickheadedly is to confirm to ZOS how much you're eager to have those things and that you'll end up buying it, no matter the price.
    You're doing everyone a disservice - including yourself.

    Honestly, there are two issues here...

    1) It is overpriced as a single character item, and for that reason, people who think that should not purchase it.

    2) ZOS does not make it plainly evident that it is character, not account-wide. (at least, last time I looked) People that do not notice the rather subtle clues might purchase one thinking that it is account-wide. This is a reasonable assumption, given the high price. That sort of defeats the first option where the player declines to buy it because it is over-priced.

    So far, ZOS has decided not to take action on either of these.

    Buyer beware, and all that ***, yes, but that doesn't make it any less.... unwelcome... on the part of ZOS.

    I believe that most people in this thread are just complaining about outfit slots being "too expensive". They're not that much concerned about the commercial message being blurred (in this case : it's one character only, not account-wide).

    I'm being snarky about the "too expensive" point, since, as i said, the answer is simple ("don't buy").

    The second point (the blurry commercial message) is a different story, and I would get on my high horse about it if it were about something more serious (like : food, shelter, etc.) . The thing is, ZOS is a business company. I may - or may not - appreciate the people in there (Rich, Gina, Jess, Kai, etc.) but the company, as a whole, is what it is : a business company. It became clear to me with the "Chapter vs. DLC" vocabulary trick back in 2017 with Morrowind. No amount of whining will ever change that level of hypocrisy. Some people at ZOS may - or may not - be trustworthy, but the company as a whole entity isn't.

    That makes such posts like "ZOS, still nothing ?" also laughable.

    The only answer to the 1st issue ("too expensive") is "don't buy" and the only answer to the 2nd issue (unclear information) is "beware and don't buy". But "ZOS? Still nothing ?" ... really... ?

    so 12 characters total x 13,500 crowns per character plus 1500 crowns for the 4 character slots above base 8 in the first place (6k crowns total) is a grand total of. . .

    one hundred and sixty eight thousand crowns 168,000

    With 18 toons cap now that's 243k Crowns = probably less than 48.6M gold pieces (because they are giftable) = potentially $0

    Guys, please, don't write about price.
    Write about correct Description of this fkking item in Crown Store.
    There should be alert that it's only for one character on account.
    With removing the scam form - they will reduce the price 100% because sells on this item will be too low.

    Outfit slots should cost only 750 crowns, anything else is extortion-level pricing.

    Also since it's not even account-level, it should be even less, like 300 or 500 the cost of a costume.

    That would be still too much, even for an account-wide unlock.

    Maybe, but I was just thinking about the 7.99$ of the cheapest crowns. But yeah, I think a per-character slot like that should be really cheap.

    Maybe they could give an extra account-level slot for Plus membership... still wouldn't offset the ridiculous cost of the slots.

    Two to three dollars per slot for all characters on an account is what you'd pay in other MMOs.

    But ESO isn't an MMO. It's a single player game with a whale farm attached.

    Even discounted as they have been occasionally they are still outrageously expensive.

    Increasing the appeal of returning to single player games.

    Occasionally is a bit of an understatement. It's pretty rare that they're not on sale in my experience. But yeah, still too expensive.

    I'd support that. I realize that at this point they can't drop the prices permanently without angering people who already bought them, but it'd be a nice perk for ESO+.

    So... I went over to Star Wars: The Old Republic Online, and looked to see how much it would cost for an outfit slot for a single character. It's 120 cartel coins.

    Now, 250 cartel coins costs $2.99. That means a 120 cartel coins would cost around $1.50 (actually slightly less).

    It is 1500 crowns for an outfit slot for a single character here at ESO. For me to get 1500 crowns costs $18.99.

    So, in one game it's $1.50. Here, it's $18.99. That's rather a staggering difference for exactly the same service. To make it match up in value, they would need to make them around 150-200 crowns for a single character outfit slot. THAT I would be willing to pay. I'll never EVER pay that ridiculous price, more than 1200% higher than other games.

    (that would be like paying about $15 for a Mars bar)
