    For those of you wondering about the bust, this gives a better idea of what it's like:

    That bust doesn't even look like Abnur Tharn! Lol.

    It's weird, almost likes its supposed to be carved out of rock and a younger more flattering version.

    I'm sure it's due to the Undaunted event revival, on account of the 4(?) opalescent arms packs and monster set syles.

    I was hoping they'd surprise us by putting midyear mayhem back to the mid-year. Motif is cool since I'd never farm for pieces. I must have those mounts. And I hope that bust opens up chances for blank busts to decorate.

    I noticed this, too, but then, the trailer version of Abnur doesn't look much like the in-game version either.

    Eh, Maybe i'll grab something from the old Crates but can we be done with the Khajiiti statuettes now?

    I'm still waiting for one of Almalexia and Sotha Sil, we already have one of Vivec.

    And what about Sithis? Idk who any of these Rando Khajiit champions even are...

    Agreed! We definitely don't need any more cat statues, and we don't need any cat busts, for that matter. Looking forward to getting the rest of the daedra and tribunal. But, even more, I'm looking forward to hopefully something else/in addition to statuettes for ESO+. Getting tired of one of the touted new perks being relegated to housing only. Well, we did get a costume when the new perks launched, but, as usual, Big Fanfare, Little Show.

    Please extend the Scalecaller Crates. 6 days is nowhere near enough, especially during holiday season.

    A few points...

    On the Bust of Abner Tharn... Any professional artist that has to please a patron (or customer) will tell you that the artwork will not reflect the true image but instead will show the image the Patron thinks they see...

    On Crown Crates... First off, I think the crown crate lotto is like every other lottery, a waste of money... so I don't buy them. But, and this is a big but, others are willing to spend their crowns on the crates and as they are their crowns and not mine, have at it... The only reason I can see for limiting the availability it that it eggs on the folks that pay for the Crown Crate Lottery to rush in and buy crowns to get more crates before they go away...

    I see no reason why there is not a drop down box that lists the crown crate types and lets the folks that want to use their crowns to buy what ever crown crate they want... perhaps limit the items in some that can't be sold for crown gems.
    Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most...

    I support this!

    And thank you for returning Scalecaller crates <3 I don't know where to highlight some items from this season, so I will use this thread cause it's relevant at the moment :)

    Dragon Priest costume is awesome, and thanks to it my characters can match the alien beauty:

    With actual costume's helmet Face Hugger fingers on the head :smiley:

    Unfortunately, while Dragon Priest costume takes black and all other dyes really well, it absolutely fails at taking white dyes... For example, full Julianos white color:

    (Eyes are glowing as side effect of polymorph, nothing scary) :D

    Lesser tier white dyes like Birch White just appear as dark gray colors on this costume :/

    Majestic Dune Rider Ensemble costume looks dirty in any white dyes... Full Julianos White:

    Default good look saves this costume in my case.

    Soiree in Camlorn Evening Suit looks nice in all colors, but the leather parts take any white dyes really bad:

    Excellent look in black color:

    If only there was same costume with long jacket/coat - would be prefect!

    On the Abnur Tharn bust, the head texture is "crisp" but the armor looks pixelated. I would like to see the armor cleaned up a little.
