    I really do hope Jodes Embrace will be reasonable within 6000/7000 crowns range.
    I don't like the limited time on this. Whats the point in making houses if they are just going to be limited time? Please just put them in the crownstore and keep them there for a while say like three or four months every house. Give players time to save up crowns or buy them. Also older limited time houses should be added in as permanent houses. island getaway is something I'm interested in also house with the water portal that is argonian is also another. Problem is these houses are not there to be bought and this is what annoys me with this business model. And because some players can't get the funds in time. They are unable to get them, and I think other players might feel the same on this very issue.

    Also if anyone on PC EU is planning on getting the statue of me and putting it somewhere nice then let this one know and she might pop by!

    Now this one expects that there will be many houses with a statue of this one in a lava pool ... :(

    Did you guys mess up the icon for the in-game mount while modifying the Crown Store mount?

    Correct, that is the wrong icon for the Sunspire Champion Senche-Lion. We'll correct this in a future update.

    I'll echo what others have said that, while there are a couple of nice new things here, there seems to be an over-reliance on re-releasing old items to pad the offerings. The one thing I was really hoping for this month, the Khajiiti martial arts katas, are locked up in the gambling boxes (which I will literally never buy) along with dozens of other new items, while normal people trying to make normal purchases from the cash shop are practically getting passed over.

    I'm seeing a lot of the same old items. Please offer us "NEW" stuff, especially hairs and warpaints.

    Except not everyone does. While I agree that I'd like to see more new items, I do appreciate them bringing old stuff back again for new players or those that missed them the first time. That said, we did just get these repeated earlier this year during the first DB/TG anniversary event. Since they are repeating it, instead of having the Midyear Mayhem (which we did have an encore of earlier this year), I suspect the CS Showcase would have been different if MM was taking place instead. ETA: Though it's probable that we would have had all the old Midyear Mayhem cosmetics instead of the DB-themed ones.
    I really do hope Jodes Embrace will be reasonable within 6000/7000 crowns range.
    I don't like the limited time on this. Whats the point in making houses if they are just going to be limited time? Please just put them in the crownstore and keep them there for a while say like three or four months every house. Give players time to save up crowns or buy them. Also older limited time houses should be added in as permanent houses. island getaway is something I'm interested in also house with the water portal that is argonian is also another. Problem is these houses are not there to be bought and this is what annoys me with this business model. And because some players can't get the funds in time. They are unable to get them, and I think other players might feel the same on this very issue.

    I sincerely doubt it will be 6-7k crowns, considering that the cheapest notable home has been Tel Galen, at 8k/10k crowns. It's possible, though, that it would be priced the same, given that it's about the same size - well, without the plane of Jode. If you consider that, they'll probably charge more. While I agree that there should be more time for these limited-time homes, the timeframe has increased from the early days, where there was about 3 days to buy them. Also, most of the limited-time homes have been offered again at least once. And those that haven't, the most recent ones, probably will be as well.

    In regard to the actual showcase, not much for me this month, other than picking up a couple costumes that are being retired.

    Except that it would've been second Mayhem with - again - repeats. Repeating something once a year is okay, but this? I'm a bit tired of sassy ledies all around me in the same hair-personality, and now there will be a second bunch. And little new in the shop.

    Btw, using Morag Tong assassin to promote DB ivent is ironic af.

    Please please tell me some of the items in the furnishing pack will go into the Purchase tab!

    I need those cute cacti with the orange tops! Actually, more of the purple leaf things too... those are my fav plants from Elsweyr!

    Now to see if I can save enough gold. *fingers crossed*

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    Eh, the only thing I really want is the Free statue, I can pass on everything else. Lol
    Not to offend anyone, I would like a new personality but the Brassy Assassin Personality just looks like some unnatural posture. Just looking at it makes me uncomfortable.

    I've made showcase video for Blazeborn Senche-Lion mount:



    As always, you will see all movement and hear all sounds which it makes :)

    I like fiery roar effect and armor... Well, that's really it :/

    It has summoning animation, it leaves paw-prints. It has decent effect during the roar.
    But it doesn't emit any light, even though after reading it's description, I expected this creature to light the darkest night :'(
    It doesn't leave any special trail or gain any special long-lasting aura after the roar - just fiery explosion.
    It has, again, the voice of ordinary lion.
    And it costs 600 gems - too high price for another example of not excellent quality (additionally to all said above, the texture on this senche's body are not great, and it has some gray areas on rear legs and under the tail) :/

    I have to admit, it looks just right in the lava :smiley:

    Yas need to really step your game up with the crown store and update frequency given so many times it's just the same ol' or reskins.
  • ZOS_SarahHecker
    Due to an unforeseen issue, we have removed the Jode’s Embrace player home and free t-shirt promotion from the July Crown Store offerings. We will notify everyone if we release the promotion and/or home in the future.

    Thank you for your understanding.
