    I love the look of the Varla armor on the mounts!

    Pity they're locked behind crate gambling, so no, I'm not going to pay for a chance at what I want.

    Love the Varla Born Wolf!

    Sheep pet looks good, my farmyard groweth...

    Great move to make radiant apex mounts available for gems - bet they won't be cheap, but at least there is hope for folks who want one rather than keep throwing $ at RNG.

    I was trying so hard not to expect Short Mussed Wave in this round of crates just based on the pattern of the last two seasons containing NPC-only hairstyles. Still really disappointed about that though. What do we need to do to get that style released? Does the art team know how much people on these forums are begging for that style (and other NPC only ones) to finally release?

    Will say it's nice to see the weapon styles coming down from being 100 gems. Also nice to see Radiants buyable with gems. Can't say I'm interested in this set, but that would have been nice in others. Will we be seeing buyable Radiants coming with other crate seasons, including any that return from this point on?

    I hope so. I strongly suspect this is a test run and it will come down to some sort of internal metrics re: the impact of this change on crown crate sales (and perhaps other factors).

    I really hope not. It would be super unfair to people who bought many crates to get the mount they wanted during all those old seasons :/ But after awful/unfair/disrespectful changes to vMA/vDSA weapons in Greymoor, I honestly would not be surprised :(

    It's very curious decision to make Radiants buyable in upcoming season. They've already lost most of their "prestige" even though the season is not in store yet, but at least this will be fair. Cause this is fresh new season and everyone can simply buy those mounts :) If all new seasons will have buyable Radiants as well, it's not bad. Something like gem-exclusive mounts with a little chance to drop from RNG as well.

    Anyway, there are few interesting items from lower-tier :) But I hoped for return of some other items in this selection.
    And I actually thought that Deadlands Guar will be the mount morph of Unstable Morpholit pet... :D

    @VaranisArano I generally agree with you and would much rather everything in the Crown store was available for direct purchase. I’ve never felt it worth it to get Crown crates when there were too many unwanted items I could get stuck with. I feel like there are enough items that I like this season for it to be worth it for me to buy some. We’ll see. :)

    I had to come here to double check :astonished: Direct-purchase Radiant Apex mounts??? :hushed:
    AM I DREAMING? Is ZOS actually progressing to be less scammy with their crates? That's a huge move! 👍

    We noticed earlier that they apparently changed their Crown Store rotation this year; we've seen more Crate Seasons, Houses, and older items return these past months than what was the norm in previous years. And now they make RA mounts directly purchasable too? Wow! (Plus they also included the Resplendent Sweetroll in the Apex drop list which rarely appears but is always nice - it gives you 400 gems so you can spend it on whatever you want instead of getting a mount you wish you could decon, or get a mount type you hate).

    I foresee some trouble with the pricing of the Radiant Apexes, and I'm sure the forums will blow a gasket when they see how much ZOS is trying to sell them for. Apex is 400gems, random Crown Gem exclusives are 600gems, Radiant Apex has to be way higher than that. So there will be quite a lot of rage directed at ZOS regarding the prices anyway I think, but it's a good move regardless.

    No, it hasn't been included in many seasons. (Or they haven't displayed them properly, because none of the crates in over a year had it as a possible drop).

    so excited to see the cherry blossom flower crown as a superior reward. The lamb too. Genuinely really happy about that.
    These ayleid style mounts also look beautiful. I might be biased because I love the ayleid aesthetic. In my opinion they're designed really well.
    I also really like that everything is now buyable with gems, even though I still dislike the crown crate system at its foundation.

    I love the look of the Varla armor on the mounts!

    Pity they're locked behind crate gambling, so no, I'm not going to pay for a chance at what I want.

    Re-read the article - Radiant Apex mounts are purchasable with Crown Gems for the first time ever. Quote from the post:

    "During this Crown Crate season, these three ultra-rare mounts (called Radiant Apex mounts) are also available for purchase with gems from the in-game Crown Store. This is the first time that you can acquire a Crown Crate’s rarest items via gems in addition to the Crown Crates themselves, and you can find them within the Radiant Apex subcategory of the Crown Crate section of the Crown Store."

    So, you should be able to buy the one you want (with enough gems), guaranteed. Pretty great considering people have been begging for that exact thing for years.

    You still have to have been gambling in the first place to stockpile enough gems to buy one of these outright. Guarantee they'll be more than 400 gems, too (or whatever the legendary mounts cost). Incoming complaint thread about the gem cost of these mounts.

    I really love the look of these Ayleid items. I would have liked an Ayleid costume or headdress too. (Also, new or returning hairstyles?)

    This is going to make me bite the bullet and create an Ayleid character. I've been playing around with it in character creation for years. I'll be down to one slot, so more slots please, ZOS!

    As someone who spent LITERALLY over £1000 UK cash money to try (and fail) to get the "plague husk horse" when they dropped I can't see it as "unfair" I only see it as finally gaining the reward.

    P.s I did get it eventually when they returned and I bought more crates

    I would keep other possible explanations in mind before praising this change as "fair." Has anyone here heard of someone contacting support to exchange gems for radiant apex mounts? I'm sure that would have been a difficult thing to deal with all the time

    There's still RNG to buying crates for gems. Does anyone who buys a lot of crates have a rough estimate of how many gems they get per crate on average?

    There was a kerfuffle a little while back where people contacted Support to "gift" account-bound mounts, including Radiant Apex ones (read, trade gold to have it "gifted" to you). Support did it for a while, but it quickly devolved into a cottage industry and once someone made it public on the forums, Support said they weren't doing it anymore.

    https://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/555970/selling-bound-mounts-now-allowed

    Part of me suspects that aside from the deal with Microsoft, this incident sparked some discussion about the future of Radiant Apex mounts.

    I had well over 3600 Crown Gems (I stopped counting as my heart was breaking opening 15 stack after15 stack)

    I asked Support to take ALL my gems for the Plague Husk Horse, they flat refused on several occasions, first in person and thrn in automated generic responses.

    I estimate per 15 pack (Depending on how many. Items you already own from them) it can be 50 - 300 gems + or - because RNG, But at least you can throw Cash or Gold at the system to eventually buy it, I can't do that with the Lotto Jackpot
