    What's with that crossbow in news page? Is it going to be purely cosmetic or we're getting actual crossbows in game? Or I am just day dreaming ;/
    @ZOS_GinaBruno

    MY guess is: Maybe it's part of a personality? So when you're idle you fiddle with the crossbow, but can't actually fire it? Having it as a bow motif is a more fun possibility my imagination conjures :wink:

    Does "skill" means only active skill or also refers more generically to any skill, including passive ones? Ex. will I be able to free up just the research passives from Woodworking (Carpentry passive) once I'm done researching without a full reset?

    "Respec 2.0

    With Update 19, you are able to make smaller, more precise changes to your Skills thanks to the updated respec system. With this update, when you reset your Skill Points, you are able to remove Skills individually and are not forced to re-add all of them from scratch, much like how you respec your Champion Points. You can clear all your Skill Points like normal if desired, but this new system will mean that if you only want to make a small change to your character's Abilities, you can!"
    Looking forward to seeing this feature for sure!!
    "Werewolves Updated

    If you have a character that carries the curse of lycanthropy, you can enjoy a series of broad improvements and changes to how the Werewolf Skill Line plays with Update 19. These changes place an emphasis on improving their ferocity and momentum in combat, and they affect both the Skill Line's Passive and Active Abilities. For example, the Blood Rage Passive will now increase the duration of your transformation when you deal damage instead of when you take it, and the Roar Active Ability is now instant cast."

    Very cool to see some reworking of werewolf, but I was also hoping to see something involving some vampire reworking/updates. Hope that is going to be happening in the future!

    @ZOS_GinaBruno At the start of the stream you said that anyone who has their twitch account tied to their ESO account would get at least 1 of the twitch drops, up to 5 depending on how long you watched it. I watched from start to finish and didn't get a single one. Obviously I am on PC or I wouldn't bring it up, but is the lack of promised rewards tied to the issues you encountered during the giveaway, or were you mistaken that people wouldn't all get at least one if they met the requirements?

    The email notifications and resulting code redemption were stretched out over at least two and a half hours, not all at once after the stream.

    So even if you didn't receive anything right after Live, there's a chance you still received at least one notification later.

    I'm hoping that we're getting these doggy dungeons now so that next year we can have an entire vampire themed story DLC, in its own zone with new costumes, a home, lots of bats, and a general overabundance of everything dark, sanguine and Gothic.

    It seems to be a greate update:
    1. Recall Stones :
    These new items give you and your fellow warriors the ability to traverse Cyrodiil like never before.
    So will it be like a consumable that you use and then you can travel to any Transius Shrine ? This can potentially be a game changer and a good anti-pvdoor system. It also seems to be good way to go back home when you are deep inside enemy territory. The only problem I can see is when someone will say keep/castle/fort xyz MG US 20/20... and then every single person ports there and end up in a 20 minute loading screen...

    We'll see. If it becomes available as a Crown Store item, that will be paying to have a distinct advantage. I am cautiously watching this to see who won the arm wrestling contest... Game design focused staff or the marketing focused staff.
    2. Respec 2.0:
    With this update, when you reset your Skill Points, you are able to remove Skills individually and are not forced to re-add all of them from scratch, much like how you respec your Champion Points.
    Oh yeas ! ! ! Thank you ZOS ! This is wonderfull news ! Small things like this makes me soo happy ! It is not much yet it brings me more joy than anything else ! With this news - you made my day ZOS ! I am going to spend some skill points on jewelry research passives immediatly ! :):):)

    3. Werewolves Updated
    If you have a character that carries the curse of lycanthropy, you can enjoy a series of broad improvements and changes to how the Werewolf Skill Line plays with Update 19.
    Good ! WW is in need of some improvements. Glad to hear that !

    All in all I think update 19 will be a grand test of the whole class representative & feedback system. If all goes well - everyone will be happy.

    Werewolves have been so blech in this game that I have one and don't even play it. We'll see if that changes.

    Now, the Respec 2.0 sounds very interesting. Again, my perception of ZOS is they they don't do anything for free, so we'll see what insane hoops the player must jump through to avoid paying Crowns.

    I doubt they will add any more chests in the 3Q DLC. They could, but I suspect that they feel they are "done for a while" with that.

    I don't see anything in the 3Q DLC that would encourage them to add a character slot.

    Made my day! YES!
    Yep. This is pretty much the one thing I wanted. It's so frustrating to build out a character only to realize you picked the wrong morph... and now you have to redo your skills (and their placements) again. This is a good, long overdue change, and I am happy.

    We already have the ability to just reset skill morphs. Of course, you have to pick all morphs again, but at least you don't have to put points back into all skills.

    With 2.0 it sounds like it'll be just like the Champion system, where you select to redo your points and then can take points out to put elsewhere, then pay the price once finished. Curious to see if they go to a flat respec fee or if it will still be based on the number of skill points you have.

    Please make Werewolves and Vampires skill lines work off of highest stat instead of being pigeonholed into stam and mag only. Imagine the new builds and the fun we could have. My mag warden has been a lvl 10 werewolf for a long time and keeps it over vampire for RP/druid shapeshifting themes. It's such a shame I can't use it effectively.

    Same. ESO account linked, Bethesda account linked (after Stream) there from 10 mins before till 15 mins after and no e-mails and no crates. Disappointed, but mainly wanting to know what went wrong.
