    As a suggestion for something other than Crown Crates - perhaps some Crowns each day?

    I like the free crates since I don't buy them but for others maybe getting that (is 400 crowns for 1 crate?) instead would be better.

    I think a mount/pet/collectible would be difficult due to having to log in each day during the event. Would you only get the prize if you logged in every day? What would happen if you didn't log in one of the days? Unless it was made so that logging in at any time during the event awarded the prize - but then ZoS wouldn't get their Daily Login incentive too!

    400 Crowns is your cost, not theirs. I'm sure they'd be willing to give you 5-10 Crown Gems and a tattoo instead of a crate.

    I think the crowns per day instead of crate is probably the best suggestion, since people could choose different things.
    My instinctual response was that I'd love an outfit slot or token, but I know for some this would have zero appeal.
    Another poster suggested dye stamps and personally these would annoy me more than anything. I usually delete the ones we get from leveling rewards. They just take up inventory space. I can already dye my costumes with ESO+ so the dye stamps are unappealing.
    So there ya go. Can't please everybody with very specific items, which is probably why they went with crates in the first place.

    Interesting. I tnought we just had one of these. Has it been that long, already?

    Can I put in a friendly request to offer something to the ESO Plus people aside from Crown Crates, in some future version of this event?

    What would you like to see? :)

    I know that short-lived events like these probably float better from a marketing standpoint, but I myself am less interested in such things compared to more substantive improvements to ESO Plus. The inventory space and housing item allowances have been very adequate replacements for things like the missing DLC that were initially (and actually continually) advertised as ESO Plus benefits. I myself find benefits like that vastly preferable to getting a bunch of gambling boxes that I won't even open.

    Here are a handful of ideas that might be nice to sneak into ESO Plus over the coming years :
    • Free wayshrine teleports
    • Free outfit changes
    • Consolidated writ surveys somehow
    • the return of subscriber bonuses, done similar to daily rewards but at much longer intervals.


    ( And yes people I know wayshrines are free if you are at one, I'm referring to the mid-field teleports ;) )

    The store item I am longing for the most is a new horse that looks like a horse. The ‘slender’ model is hideous. I’d love to see some fresh skins on the original model, which could still use some tweaking (the gaping mouth and wonky rear legs) but is nevertheless slightly superior to the new model.

    Of course, I understand that if rewards are limited to a specific item then lots of people will be disappointed as not everything appeals to everyone. I deliberately timed my Morrowind purchase to avoid getting the Nix-ox. So how about giving us choices beyond specific items and beyond RNG crates?

    With so many free crates available these days, gems have become a ‘loyalty currency,’ accrued by time spent in game or financially supporting the game. I’d love to see a ‘loyalty’ gem shop accessible to ESO+ that offers more than just the current season’s crate items. I’ve got almost 500 gems plus a Sweetroll but nothing from the Psijic crates is appealing to me. Every item from every crate I open gets extracted so the stash keeps growing. It would be really great to be able to access items for gems from previous seasons, even if only occasionally, or other past crown exclusives that have never reappeared, even if only during special store events.

    I find this a scary, somewhat threatening, idea. I hope that the people at ZOS do not see it that way. Well, at least none of the decision makers at ZOS.

    I’m waiting for my card to come in the mail to make a purchase hoping it comes any day and I was going to get an eso membership. I see the event is starting July 10-16. A question to ZOS but will I still be able to acquire the 6 psijic crates if I get a membership instead of the trial and login between those days?

    They might not be noting replies to this chain here (since there is a thread for it), but along those lines, I would be interested in a Crown Store sale for the duration of the event for paid ESO Plus members.

    My reason for starting this is that Crown Crates don't ring my bell, so that sort of leaves me left out of the fun.

    As for subbing:

    I would like to see loyalty rewards return. I still mostly use that striped tiger senche mount with a sense of pride.

    And if you'd like to make my black little heart pump a few times, an extra outfit slot on each character would certainly get it going.

    In regards for a short term events... I don't mind crates as I will never, ever, buy them. But it all does seem rather pointless at the end of the event when I open my 4 to 6 crates and get a bunch of useless poisons and potions. My CP is also in the 900s... so yet another XP scroll is just as useless to me.

    If you were going to stick with the crates, I guess, honestly, I'd prefer a generous pack of crown gems for each day logged on so I can buy, or save up, for exactly what would interest me. If you did that I'd be damn sure to log on each day... which I already do anyway, but that's besides the point. I'd be more excited to do so.

    The Striped Tiger Senche was special for a while; it was a great reward. We have a million mounts and costumes now, but unique mounts or costumes or even full motifs would be far more rewarding than 25 Fortifying Crown meals thatn you turn into gems that can buy nothing interesting or special either.

    In that vein, how about the long-delayed Moonlight Senche Mount that was supposed to be the matching counterpart to the Moonlight Senche Pet? I've been waiting ages for this mount to come out, and ZOS never has answered why the delay. We know the asset was made and saw it in PTS a long time ago. Since they just pimped out the Moonlight Senche pet again during a recent sale in June, why not release the mount as a reward?

    While this is something I'd like to see, I don't think it should be something offered during this event. Why? Because if they were to offer a unique mount to ESO+ players, you'd have a lot of non-subs who would only sub for a month to get the mount and then unsub after. So, you'd have a lot of non-ESO+ members sporting a mount that is intended for ESO+ members. If they were to introduce such unique rewards, I would rather have them tied to a certain number of months subbed, than just a reward for anyone who happens to be subbed during the promotional event.

    I'd rather have free crowns for each day logged in or free gems to purchase crate items outright, rather than playing the lottery. But, I suspect they offer crates since even if someone only subs to get those crates, it's only one additional crate for the price and it's another way to get people hooked on crates.

    One thought was to enhance the existing benefits on a daily basis for the duration. I know that XP, and inspiration boost, and research time reductions are not flashy, so they tend to get panned, but they are useful. Maybe double that during the event.

    Another thought was to double crafting resource harvests (plants, ore, mob drops, etc) for the duration. Give people something to put in that bottomless bag.

    A new thought would be to tie into the daily rewards and have a claimable reward every day. Have it progress each day so that on the last day there is something like a 100% XP scroll for those who were on each day.

    These are some great ideas! Give a nice extra benefit to current ESO+ members that doesn't encourage subbing just for a month to get something really cool.

    The opportunity to purchase past limited time offerings directly from the Crown Store.

    Never going to happen. Having "limited time" sales are good for buisness. I don't even blame ZOS for having them.

    But it would still be limited... It would just be opened for the duration of the ESO+ event. The alternative is what they have in place now: only one chance to buy it directly then it’s gone forever or hidden behind crates (and I don’t buy crates).

    Would it be too difficult to organise a freebie on the yearly anniversary of your subscription?

    Maybe a costume or pet to start with and after 2 years or so an Apex Mount?

    Be great if it was cumulative too. I know some people cancel their subscription for a few months due to work then return.
