People without Elsweyr are creating and playing with Necromancers

Didn't see any news about Necromancers becoming free and I think is weird.
People on guild chat are reporting being able to create and play with Necromancers but can't go to Elsweyr.

And I had a guild member trying in a second account without Elsweyr and succeeded. Is it a bug or a feature?

    Oh, fixing this is going to be ugly. If they delete necromancer characters that were created by people who don't own Elsweyr then those people are going to be pissed. If they don't delete necromancer characters that were created by people who don't own Elsweyr then people who bought Elsweyr primarily for the necromancer class are going to be pissed.

    I mean, it really doesn't matter what the people who created necromancers without owning Elsweyr think. It's in the TOS to not "Promote, upload, transmit, encourage or take part in any activity involving hacking, cracking, phishing, taking advantage of exploits or cheats and/or distribution of counterfeit software and/or Virtual Currency or virtual items. In an effort to continuously improve the Services, You and other players discovering exploits, cheats, cracks or other inconsistencies are required to report them to ZeniMax; "

    ZOS is 100% within their legal rights to delete those characters
    Oh I agree, but I also guarantee that if they do that people who created unauthorized necromancers are going to be mad anyway. Especially if they bought crown store upgrades for those necromancers, or inventory upgrades, etc.

    They should know better, but that doesn't mean that people will actually take responsibility for doing something that they should have known not to do.

    Probably they won't delete the chars but will lock them until you have Elsweyr Chapter in your account.

    Actually you're right, that might be the best way to handle it.

    I agree. I didn't think about that as an option, but it makes a lot of sense. And then it doesn't completely steamroll people who didn't realise the difference (such as new players who don't know how it works or people who thought it was legit)

    I'm not going to be mad at someone getting free access to the necromancer class if they didn't intentionally exploit. Good for them. ...

    Is there any way to knowingly create a character class that you never purchased legitimate access to, and not be intentionally exploiting?
    like...are you taking the position that someone is going to meaningfully attempt to argue that they thought the new patch simply gave everyone access to the latest locked class just because ZOS is so generous?

    This could probably work for new players. Players with high CP and playing for a while knows how things work.`
    So necromancer became free and warden a lot older no? Yeah don't be innocent xD

    Delete the toons and temp ban the accounts. Might seem severe but I'm not a fan of the "my exploiting is ZOS's fault" attitude.
    Yes temp banning players who are returning and havent played the game for awhile and don't know that necromancers are part of paid content. Smart.

    Never said you had to agree. Take it easy.
