Predicting which old costumes will be recycled into the new crate season

Hi all, just thought it might be a fun exercise to try and figure out which old costumes will be making a comeback in the new crates. I haven't been around as long as many of you, so I'm hoping your insight can help!

Here's a list of costumes that, as far as I can tell: 1) are not obtainable in-game, 2) haven't already been recycled in a crate season, 3) are not holiday or event-specific, 4) are not offered as part of a bundle currently in the CS, 5) are not given by the level-up rewards, and 6) were not part of an "exclusive" edition bonus.

I know old holiday/event costumes and special bonuses are not necessarily off the table, but what do you think, does this seem like a good place to start? What am I missing?

Given past patterns, what do you expect will make a return appearance in the new season? There were a whole bunch removed from the store in May (Ancestral Homage, Marshlord, Wizard-Lord) that seem like pretty good candidates to me.

Update log:
12/04/18 - Removed "holiday" prerequisite since it does not seem to apply. Added Glenmoril Witch Robes. Updated which costumes returned. Added some recently removed costumes.

07/01/19 - Added Queen's Eye-Master and a few that have left the store or recently been LTOs. Updated which costumes returned.

    The last thing people want is to receive a prize they've already purchased and there is already too little incentive to buy crown crates... It would be nice if they periodically brought costumes back to the crown store for a limited time and kept new costumes for a season or longer before doing the same.

    Thanks for posting this! I recently started the same discussion here https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/comment/5393434#Comment_5393434

    I would only add Treethane Ceremonial Dress and Glenmoril Witch Robes!! Not sure if the last one was specific to the Witch Festival event.

    Dunno about costumes, but the Zombie Personality is waiting in the wings for a Crate Release and would fit the theme well!

    I'm with the "bring them back, but not in the crates" crowd. It's easier for ZOS to leave the crate content lists alone, which means they're more inclined to cycle the crates back around, and that's a good thing. The store is a different matter, and having those costumes available for gems or crowns is appropriate. If the costumes are "seasonal" in any way, then an annual revisit should happen.

    I'm moreso hoping for the Haj Mota Hatchling and Infernal Sep Adder to return rather than a costume.

    The Blacksmith and Chef outfits were included in the loot table for the Dungeon event they did last fall. That doesn't preclude them necessarily from being candidates for this next season, but I just thought I'd mention that these have been on offer twice now.

    I wore the Treethane dress quite a lot after I bought it, and funnily enough, I don't recall seeing anyone else wearing it. At the time, I wondered why, as I rather like it. I began to wonder whether I was the only one who actually bought it. I know it wasn't in the store for long, though, so that may have been a factor.

    It also came to the crown store during summer holidays, might be another reason why not everyone was able to buy it at the time.
    It seems to be the one outfit people on these forums ask for the most though, hoping ZOS takes notice.

    Taking a look at the ever increasing list of costumes that might one day return, I wondered whether it would be possible to set up a poll so people can vote for the costume they'd like to return first?

    Hey guys, I updated this list according to the newest crate seasons.

    Really interesting to note that many of the costumes left on this list returned for the Black Friday sale!

    These are the ones returning with the new Xanmeer crates:
    • Marshlord Formal Bugshell Robes
    • Lizardly Four-Fabric Skirt Set
    • Xanmeer Doyen's Worship Robe
    Interestingly, some of those weren't on this list because they were removed from the store so recently.

    Just updated the list. Am I missing anything that has been taken from the store recently?

    Here are the costumes returning with the Baandari Pedlar Crown Crates:
    • "Song of the Night" Ensemble
    • Cyrod Gentry's Town Gown
    • Kinlord's Alinor Attire
    • Moon-Sugar Festival Suit
    • Queen's-Eye Spymaster

    Fun fact - Kinlord Alinor Attire was removed from the crown store with zero notice and ZOS never commented. Now we see why :wink:

    KAA was originally a special outfit advertised a year ago during Summersets launch for its crown season and such or near it, I bought it then for crowns as a birthday present in July or August.

    Surprised to see it again.
