    Pssst Jess, there is a typo in the article. The article says: Imperial City Sewers (as one of the DLC dungeons) instead of Imperial City Prison :)

    Putting the scamp and skin in runeboxes is a great move.
    Agreed, I really like moves from ZOS to make rewards boxes which can be traded/sold rather than unlocks.

    It gives the people who can or are lucky enough to earn them great ways of making money from repeating the content and those who can't earn them that way get a chance to still own them.

    No? Article says CE contains Mind-Shriven skin/horse. And it's always been Mind-Shriven in the CE. Soul-Shriven has always been an exclusive in-game drop and has never been in the CS.

    Wrong french traduction again ... Both mind-shriven and soul-shriven skins are called " Peau d'absous " lel.

    but strange, cause the picture show the soul-shriven skin.

    No, that's the Mind-Shriven skin in the picture. See the faint blue lines?

    Edit: Okay, I guess you could say that the lines are sparks from the horse. Eh, they've always used this picture in the past.

    PVP combat balance is broken and you release a mega PVP event without addressing huge bugs and unbalance.
    It doesn't sound very reasonable.
    I'm happy for those who will participate and I don't claim that you shouldn't, it just there are so many unsolved issues.
    The following is still not fixed and will impact Imperial City gameplay if left unaddressed:
    1) CC/roots immunities bugs - double/triple/other CC/roots is being applied to the player while the immunities are not stopping it from being applied/no CC/roots immunity is being granted. In order to break free, there is a need to do it several times.
    2) Broken/OP item sets, some builds are OP while others are very bad.
    3) Sprint bug - Random sprint is being applied to the player character, all abilities are grayed out and only clicking shift stops it.
    4) Server and Client performance while in Cyrodiil, for example: frequent extremely high latency, crashes, very low fps.
    5) Resources drain - Sometimes a character may suffer magicka/stamina resource drain without any reason.
    6) More issues, the above are some of the major ones.

    All those issues are on topic of this discussion and can make PVP really unenjoyable.
    This post follows forum rules and is merely just a friendly reminder that there are so many issues with PVP right now that should be addressed.
    I do hope that ZOS will be able to fix all/some of this by next week.

    Seems cool, will definately buy the collector's edition!

    I've never played IC before, but have watched the promo video on this site for it. But wasn't the thing with tel var stones that players drop those on death?

    Anyways, I am going to try IC.

    Yes--currently, players lose half their carried stones when they die.

    If they're killed by a player (or players), the stones they lose are redistributed to their killers.

    After the dropchance got doubled in update v4.1.5, its doubled again. So that means we have a dropchance of 400% compared to last year, right?
    Would be nice if they didnt doubled the earlier value, which would mean 300%.

    It's really not that bad! If you want to collect stones, just bank them whenever you die. The rate will be double, so even if you get taken out frequently, you are still making stones at the same rate you would if you were farming NOT during the event and never dying (if you ignore the stone-carrying multipliers).

    Yes, they always used this picture for the bundle, and it’s a soul-shriven skin on the picture there. The mind-shriven that comes in the bundle has glowy blue eyes.
