Hey guys! I would really appreciate if someone could shed some light over two concerns of mine. I've started ESO couple years back but because my other half doesn't like it I didn't really play it either. Fortunately though (or unfortunately?) every time we play anything else I keep remembering ESO and how much I prefer how things are done here instead. So here I am, back again, as an old player who doesn't actually know much about the game at all.
So. I really like how you can customize your armors and paint them however you want. I don't understand tho the new outfit option. Some time ago I played during a Halloween event and had those runeboxes I think were called that had the entire Hollowjack skins thing. I was under the impression that I needed to craft those in order to wear them using the special rare materials. However, now I can just wear them by changing my outfit? Which is what I'm doing right now, but I don't understand what is now the difference between... having an outfit and having crafted armors using the specific motifs? I'm mainly wondering this because I have a ton of crafting materials which now seem to me obsolete since i can just select whatever outfit i want and not craft anything. Would be a relief to be able to just dispose of those.
Secondly, I know there's a new option now to send crown items as gifts to players. Would it be possible for me to pay someone gold and have them send me an assistant? Like a banker or a merchant? Is this something people do? And if they do, could you advise on how to go about it without getting... well, scammed?=) Is there perhaps be an option to sen d a gift to someone and request a payment or smth like that?
