    That Ancient Sites Explorer costume will go nicely with the camel mount that's amongst this month's Daily Rewards.

    The following items will be retired from the Crown Store on all platforms on May 20 at 10am EDT.

    Upgrades (Account)

    Adventure Pack

    What pack is that? Is that AdventureR Any Race - Any Alliance ?

    Are the Alliance Races being locked back down?

    Any Race, Any Alliance Bundle

    Unlocks the ability to create characters of any Alliance regardless of race. Represent your Alliance with a Mount, Pet, Costume, and Hat!

    Also contains a Race & Name Change Token, 3 Experience Scrolls, and a collection of Treasure Maps.

    The Any Race, Any Alliance Bundle will be available in the Crown Store on all platforms starting on May 20.

    The Alinor dresses, a bunch of beautiful new outfits, a new personality...

    Wow, lots of stuff there. And a lot of it is pretty nice. It's good to finally see those Altmer dresses become available.

    With the removal of the Adventurer Pack, does that mean the only way to get Any Race, Any Alliance is the new and presumably more expensive bundle?

    Well, good thing I took advantage of last month's sale after all. After several mostly dry months, we get a flood of new costumes and stuff this month.

    One question though, why is the basic senche model a limited time offer?

    Very interested in the Torch personality. Holding a torch constantly while walking/running is definitely tempting, but if you can hold your torch while riding your mount, I think that's a definite buy for me.

    Staff user here, but Sinweaver looks really cool!

    Also ZoS you continue to tease me with these images of Vivec City interiors in the showcase and it makes my heart jump!

    PLEASE make a bigger Vivec City home one day! Anything bigger then that closet that is the St. Delyn Penthouse :D

    One question though, why is the basic senche model a limited time offer?

    Lioness was already in store long time ago, it was available instead of Lion as basic senche mount long time ago :) It was then "retired" and put into Reaper's Harvest crown crate season. This month new players will simply have an opportunity to buy this mount outside of crates for a limited time. After it, they will have to wait for return of that crate season if they want this mount.

    It would be truly unique personality, cause no personality to this date could alter the way you ride a mount <3 I'm also waiting to preview it, together the new hair style and the Nightflame weapon pack. Can't know for sure...

    I expect that this personality will be quite expensive.

    I know it's been in the store before, but it's not a recolor and doesn't come with special effects or glow. The six base models are something I think should be in the store year round. It's kind of funny to treat a plain model like a braided sparkle horse.

    @lordrichter

    Don't they always call out the stuff that's gem exclusive in its own section?

    They've always highlighted gem exclusives. I don't think they have a reason to suddenly hide it.

    Glad to see the Altmer dresses! My female Altmer is going to look so lovely tomorrow! Plus, all three at once, rather than doling them out is appreciated after such a long wait.

    I also like the other costumes on offer, though I'm surprised to see yet more female Redguard costumes. With these 2, that makes 6 so far. Meanwhile, female Khajiit still have no costumes, and female Nords are missing their basic, 500 crown version. Ah well...at least these are all regular items and not limited time offers.

    Speaking of the limited-time costumes though - I'll be picking up the tavern maid for sure, and possibly the ancient sites explorer, depending on price.

    Plus - a new hairstyle! We'll see how it looks, but I may pick that up as well. Depending on the price of the personality, and how it works, I might get that also. I'm glad a lot of the stuff I want is NOT limited-time, so I can wait on some things and not have to buy it all this month. Kudos to ZOS for finally giving us a showcase with better balance between regular and limited-time offers.

    And...Frostvault Chasm! I'm guessing they've left this as a medium home, and if so, I'm hoping it won't cost more than that gimmick snow globe did. If so, I'll probably pick this one up. Only CS limited home since Tel Galen that I'll have purchased.

    Thankfully, I did take advantage of the Crowns sale. On XB, I still get my crowns on a monthly basis, even though I've paid for a year sub.

    Yeah, but they might not have done it this time. Not to hide it, but just didn't do it. Maybe the Gem list was not available yet. If they don't have Showcase stuff for people to buy with Gems, that would be quite a change. A whole month with no Showcase Gems stuff?

    If you have to ask, you can't afford it. :smile:

    Seriously, though, they have not announced the price, yet. Likely, we will have to wait until it is on the Live server.
