    Is this private arena, the pvp theme house mentioned before with special mechanics for duels ?
    I believe so yes. As that's the name others have used when talking about it.

    Pretty cool

    Thanks

    I hope this is the case !

    Appreciate the Azura statuette!

    All the music boxes look nice but I really need to know how they sound before considering buying. I was surprised when I previewed and 'activated' the music boxes that the lid opened, the hand crank turned but no music! I'd recommend adding the sounds when they are activated in preview. In the meantime, is there a link somewhere to listen to what each sounds like?

    How can you buy a music box if you don't listen to it first?

    You should choose another place to preview. Seems like ambient music prevents you from hearing the music box. As far as I remember, I had no problems with listening in one of my houses.

    Thank you! I'll give that a try! Awesome.

    Edit: Tried previewing the music boxes in the quiet of my home and it worked. Thanks again!

    Free Statuette of Azura - I find these statuettes to be just okay. I'd be MUCH happier with ones of the Divines rather than the Daedric Princes. Though I have to admit I'm looking forward to seeing how they pull of Hermy Mora. Yay-ish. Mostly meh.


    Crown Gems Exclusives -These are flatly awful. Stop it.

    Hero Costumes - These were mostly awful when they were new. ESPECIALLY the Breton Hero one. Trust me, it's horrible. Don't waste your money on it!

    Auroran Knight Costume, all Alliance stuff - Got the dog, which was the only thing worth having. The rest is extremely "meh!"

    Elder Scrolls Artifact: Spellbreaker Shield - I've yet to be impressed with this stuff, especially with the pricetag. NOPE.


    Event Ticket - I don't care about the Indrik. And the price and/or effort is exorbitant. More nope!

    Music Boxes - This was the only thing I was remotely interested in. Stop makign them limited time offers though. They are defintitely a thing that needs to be in the permanent line up!

    Meridia, Lady of Infinite Energies Statue - Nope.

    Furnishing packs - Didn't we just have Murkmire and all things Argonian shoved down our throats? Since I have zero interest in lizards.... NO THANKS.

    Grand Topal Hideaway - Give me an island that is NOT Argonian in theme and we'll talk.

    Elinhir Private Arena - It's neat? But I doubt very much I can think of a use for an arena for me personally. Still impatiently waiting for a house I actually WANT to come out.

    Meridian Sabre Cat and Meridian Sabre Cub -I will never care about mounts that are not horses. Nor weird little glowy pets.

    Egg Hunter’s Horse - Actually....I don't care about this horse either. Quit ruining them with cutesy holiday themes please. Nay. Neigh, even!

    Mind-Shriven Skin - Another HIDEOUS skin? And another retread at that? No thanks.

    Psijic Vault Crown Crates -No thanks.

    Overall, the showcase is lackluster. Mostly retreads. I don't mind returning things others have missed. But NEVER should they be over half the offerings for a month.

    And STILL no Summerset gowns???? WTH ZOS???

    For any @ZOS there is a typo on the first paragraph below the Psijic Vault Crates screenshot. Where it states in brackets (except for Radian Apex mounts) shouldn't that be "Radiant"?

    Tiny matter but just thought I'd mention it. :)
