    By the way, for the players who are intending to change; might want to send in a support ticket and ask if the faction/races lock mechanism is still in place.

    What it used to be, if you did NOT have the any faction/any race explorer's pack [from pre-order] or you haven't bought the adventurer's pack from the crown store, you MIGHT NOT be able to change your character's race, if the race you're changing to isn't in your faction.

    My female Dunmer had an unfortunate collision with the cheekbone and eye sliders. Her condition is fatal fugliness. She's probably going to need a gender change. The other two tokens will remain on hold until the sliders spin out of control again.

    Yep. This is all I'm using one for - a khajiit I've never liked but have too many levels on, AND nearly maxed all three riding options. I was going to buy a token eventually to fix her, but hey, now I don't have to! The other two will sit until called for by whatever craziness happens down the road.

    Has an Khajiit stamblade and an Bosmer magblade who will swap roles down the line, just level skill during events.
    Has an Khajiit I'm not happy with, also the Bosmer name is not lore friendly.

    Saves the other two for the OP Ohmes-raht who I guess comes with Elsweir :open_mouth:

    I will wait and see til the dust settles. Right now the 3 characters I play the most are:
    - Bosmer stam sorc, I play PVE and PVP with her.
    - Argonian DK tank, right now he is level 40,only done PVE with him and the intention is to be a PVE tank.
    - Altmer mag sorc, PVE

    I have also saved some gold, if I need to get the any race, any alliance -upgrade. If I find my characters to be lacking and if it seems that there is clearly superior options, I will race change and get the upgrade.

    All of my Redguards will stay the same. My new Necro will be a Redguard also as I want at least 1 of each class as a Redguard.

    My 2 Imperials and Argonian however.... may be changed. Argonian overall, I really don't like their story/lore.
    Ras Kalik | Redguard - Templar (the Vestige)
    Juks | Redguard - Nightblade
    Cacique Yokuda | Redguard - Warden*
    Kaotik Von Dae'mon | Redguard - Sorcerer
    Goliath of Hammerfell | Redguard - Dragonknight
    Tyrus Septim | Imperial - Sorcerer*
    Cinan Tharn | Imperial - Dragonknight*
    Herzog Zwei the Genesis | Nord - Templar*
    ______________________________
    50 / 685+ CP | * = <50 | PS4/NA

    Ras Kalik the Vestige, renown Redguard Paladin Templar and wielder of Chrysamere, has been blessed to fight for many of the gods that make up the Pantheons of Tamriel. During these personal adventures, he has saved Tamriel from Molag Bal’s Planemeld while reuniting the Five Companions, has also stopped the destruction of Morrowind, Clockwork City and returned order to Summerset. These events lead him to have many lover trysts with women from royalty such as Queen Ayrenn and wild encounters in the den of thieves with Quen, Velsa and Zeira. On his travels he typically is a loner but has joined with a small group of the Ash'abah tribe.

    These Ash'abah currently reside in the Alik'r desert and are led by Cacique Yokuda a drunk who has become a spiritual advisor of Tu'whacca. Kalik can mystically hear the prayers Cacique whispers in the desert to keep his friend safe before battles. In Sentinel, King Fahara’jad’s personal bodyguard Goliath of Hammerfell asked to join them after witnessing the defeat of the Withered Hand cult but instead Ras Kalik promised Goliath he would task him with clearing delves and dungeons. Juks a rogue that frequents the Sisters of the Sands inn knows how to infiltrate any bank vault or lowly bandit hideout. Kalik recalls the day he met the thief. Juks a master thief couldn't steal from Kalik’s pocket and almost lost an arm trying to do so! Last but not least the conjurer of magical pets, Kaotik Von’Daemon. Kaotik and outcast pariah for summoning Daedric pets, met Kalik while traveling from Alik'r to Wrothgar by Orcish caravan. During this caravan trip, it was ambushed by Imperial bandits fleeing the war in Cyrodiil. Kalik by happenstance was traveling thru this area on his Auridon warhorse and was able to save Kaotik while dispatching most of the bandits to an early grave. These men who may never be seen together in travel always know what the other is doing, as they share a hideout together in Sentinel, close to their King Fahara’jad. The hideout is kept by Nuzhimeh and she hears and relays the messages between them, while they enjoy her company for a price.

    During skirmish with the Imperials from Cyrodiil, Ras Kalik saved two of them Tyrus Septim a battle-mage advisor to the Tharn family and Cinan Tharn a nephew to Abnur Tharn. Both are currently on the run for war crimes and were sentenced to death by execution. Herzog Zwei the Genesis, the famed Nord Executioner is tracking them and is looking to meet up with them one day. The two Imperials however decided after their escape they should join different factions and hed back to Cyrodiil to out maneuver Herzog. They do not trust Ras Kalik, but he saved them from execution and they respect him for that.

    I will look at them and say 'look, race change tokens'. Then save then for potential future mistakes.

    I have a female Breton Templar called Allun (welsh version of Alan; was male when she started but I appearance changed her without realizing names were separate). She'll get a new name with the name change tokens. Suggestions please...

    Just some soft trolling.
    Also an warning that changing race because negligible differences can easy be wasted because of class or system changes, even sets.

    I have Bosmers. Magic Bosmers, Stamina Bosmers, Only Bosmers. Would change games before changing any of them to another race.

    So, the potential I see for the race change tokens might possibly to do some very minor tweaking in the char gen menu like a different 'base' hairstyle or such. I gather you can change appearance of the same race with one of those tokens. I think.

    Main: Imperial Stamina Dragon Knight
    Sometimes I switch him to Magicka Tank.
    I have played him since launch. I played an Imperial DK in beta and have played Imperials since Oblivion. Played as a Dunmer in original Morrowind though.

    Will not race change.

    Thought about switching to Orc briefly.
    However after making a throwaway Orc alt for character creation testing i noticed 2 unfortunate issues.

    1. Orc males are ugly no matter what i do. It's as
    If every branch of the ugly tree struck them on
    the way down and then the tree fell on them
    after they landed.

    2. The dang tusks slightly clip through most
    outfits/costumes with masks...

    Alt: Altmer Magicka Sorc. I'm keeping him an
    Altmer. Sure the stamina return mechanic is goofy
    but at least we didn't get penetration tied to a dodge roll or something.

    Both of these characters do fine in endgame with proper gear and rotation and i don't expect that to change.

    Changing the name and appearance of Greninja to Salazzle and adjusting the sliders accordingly.

    Changing the voice of Dalek-Rok since I forgot to change it from Male Voice B to Female Voice G last time I did a sex change.

    Saving the third one for my Necromancer because I know I'll end up having second thoughts between level 3 and max.
    Dalek-Rok - Argonian Sorcerer
    Grenin'Ja - Argonian Nightblade
    Dalek-Shul - Argonian Templar
    Dalek-Xal - Argonian Dragonknight
    Dalek-Thux - Argonian Warden

    I don't know. I'm torn.

    I despise the new altmer and bosmer passives and have more than 3 of those. But I also have spare wardens in every race I could possibly want to play so needn't use the change tokens.

    There are also other considerations for me.

    Summerset the island is pretty - the landscapes - but their architecture and furniture looks more medieval European than Elven. The Auridon style - while looking a bit worn / dirty - is superior. And I'm not a fan of the Summerset elven motifs. That's a definite turn off. The Psijic stuff (motifs, furniture and tower) is great though.

    Also in the negative column, I've never managed to make a male altmer face I truly love. Making them look decent requires perfect dressing and accessorizing. Whereas every other one of my characters is stunning in their own right. Even my vamps.

    On the plus side, I like the Indriks and they suit my altmer and bosmer. Though I also have cool mounts and pets for my dunmer.

    Vvardenfell architecture and furniture is beautiful - except obviously for the Telvanni tower exteriors. They aren't for sale for in-game gold though so kind of don't exist. And the Morrowind motifs range from awesome (Morag Tong) to quite decent.

    I feel like I'd have more and better aesthetic options for a dunmer.

    I don't care about the min max stuff... I made my chars so they are close to how I imagined them and to my liking. Changing their looks and race to get some extra regen or buff is not something I want to do. I will most likely never notice the difference, but luckily my 2 out of 3 chars are breton, so they are good.

    I always wanted to have an imperial char, so I will change my nord templar to imperial, and also change his name. Most likely the other tokens will be saved for some time later.
