Anyone else have an OCD need to match their characters to their mounts?

If so, show me what you’ve got! I have wasted literal hours and thousands upon thousands of gold ensuring that my characters complement their mounts as much as possible.

It’s so bad, I’m actually bothered by the fact that you can’t see my Ebon orbs on my tank, or my active Ilambris weapon effects on my Khajiit...

    Yes, also some mounts are character specific and no-one else is allowed to ride them, some of my characters have to earn the right to ride a mount for example if they can't fight they won't be riding any kind of war/Cyrodiil mount..

    Some mounts are both character and outfit/costume or even hairstyle specific

    Also they have Cyrodiil and PVE mounts

    lol

    I spend a lot of money on mounts so like to see that they are used properly..

    I actually spent HOURS trying out different shades for "Hearth Husband" and am still upset that I don't have a beige/light brown that fits the horse. It's either too yellowish, reddish, dark or light TnT

    Hahaha, glad I’m not the only one. Even your pets match! :D My characters used to have pets too, but the stress of making sure that they matched (which is not always easy, as I’m sure you know) got too much for me. Now they have NO pets.

    I love the grey theme you have for your sorc with the Yokudan charger.

    @Aurielle Ahah, thanks :blush: Moneiba used to have another color scheme, she got her make over a couple weeks ago when I realized I had unlocked quite a few new colors !

    About the pets : if you have the clockwork city, maybe the dovah fly pet that comes with it could fir Khutala. I particulaly like both your argonians btw. The names are great too ! I feel very judged.

    Other way around for me. I found an appearance for the character and won't purchase any mount that doesn't match.

    Depends. For example I stopped riding the dro-M'Athra on my main because the only colors I could bear to wear with it were black and blue and that got boring, but the ordinary horse I'll let her wear whatever on.

    Oh my goodness yes!

    I get so caught up in trying to find both a mount and a pet that match my characters.

    I'm at work right now so I cannot post my images just yet but I will aim to do so when I get home later today.

    Do it! It’s so oddly satisfying. :D

    Finally found a use for that tattoo, and the Pyandorean legs look so great against the horse when she’s mounted up.

    Sweet! That's a sharp look.

    Question: How do you get your UI elements to look like that of ES: Skyrim? Is that via an add-on?

    Nah, not an add on — it’s the console UI. Though I believe you can get the same look on PC if you use a controller.

    Yes and no. There is an overall theme for each character that must be met. Once I get a character to that magical point, they will not be changed. And no two characters can be the same, have the same look, mount or pet. I'm at work so I can't get pictures right now, but I think I have some up on my Twitter somewhere...
