    Oh I see some nice stuff!

    Will we be able to buy the Radient Apex Mounts from the Dragonscale Crates with gems like with the Alyeid ones or was that a one-time thing? :smile:

    Another month & once again, no hairstyles. Looks like I'll be saving my crowns this time around, though I am excited for the Zaan arms pack.

    Why won't they release or bring back hairstyles is beyond me honestly. Hopefully, next month they'll bring back heroic poet & possibly put short mussed wave in the Iron Atronach crates.

    Nice things this month but.... Please bring back Colossal Aldmeri grotto and Jode's Embrace houses.

    Is that Harrowing Reaper dummy equivalent to the Iron Atronach dummy? Because I am really, really tired of parsing on that Iron Atro and would love a change of pace.

    With certain exceptions, I don't like the costumes in ESO. That said, I do like the Night Mother's Evangelist. Very interesting.

    The wording on the Night Mother Evangelist costume's description is incredibly awkward. "Fulfill upon the Sacrament" should just be "fulfill the Sacrament." And "I am the latter" doesn't make sense -- the latter of what? Finally, the quote is attributed to "Night Mother Evangelist" like that's a person's name; as far as I'm aware, no other collectibles are attributed to generic people.

    It should probably look something more like this:

    "Some whisper the words in their hearts and call for an unworthy person's death. Others, if they possess the right skills, fulfill the sacrament on behalf of the Night Mother. I am one of the latter—as my robes proclaim. Care to know more?"—Lucien Lachance (obviously using Lucien's name as a placeholder).

    I hope the description is edited before release.

    I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be the new normal, having them available for gems. Don't remember a source though.

    I'm also waiting to see that. Solar Horses everywhere incoming? :D
    If they will actually make Radiants available for gems in Dragonscale season, I guess Solar Horse will be the top-priced mount. It will make formidable rival for my Welkynd-Born Courser :o



    And I wonder if Nighthaunt Gloomspore Senche will have different particle effects when roaring. If it will have same green particles as Gloomspore Senche, I will be disappointed :/ Hopefully somebody will post showcase of that mount! :)

    Night Mother Evangelist looks very nice on promo picture.

    Gem-Prospector outfit is finally back <3

    Harrowing Reaper looks very cool. Not sure if I will want to buy it... It will depend on few other things.

    NightHollow motif finally becoming available on May 12? Cool!

    Again no new Hairstyl. Again a crown gem exclusiv mount which will cost 200+ Dollar.

    I should add that, while I would also very much like to see more hairstyles and finally be able to purchase Tel Galen, I’m glad that more items have been rotating through the Crown store — two different houses each month, often a returning Crown season, and many costumes and other items. :)

  • Radiance
    Please bring bacc Storm Atronach Crates soon! There's a few things I desperately want from them!

    You know...I love this game but there are times, like now, when developers do something that just comes across as a major disconnect with a player base. 800gems for a mount and you didn't or couldn't be bothered to time it to coincide with either a new crown crate cycle or even an old crown crate re-release (as in the Dragonscale crown crates coming back later this month). What is currently happening here feels like a slap-in-the-face to the playerbase. Now that most of your players who buy crown crates have most everything to offer from the current selection (the Ayleid crates), you expect them to purchase even more crown crates in order to acquire the 800 gems (acquired through RNG) needed to buy what I personally consider an overpriced, and reskinned Gloomspore Senche. "Someone" or the group of "Someone's" responsible for this should be reprimanded for what is a clear affront to a large chunk of your playerbase. Take the time to peruse the forums on the topic. Talk with players ingame as it may be an eye-opener for some. I have spent my share and a few other folks shares worth of money on this game and between two accounts in the last year. I will happily walk away if this kind of behavior becomes a trend. This is not a threat, it is simply a statement of fact and I'm quite certain that ESO will continue to run without my presence if I chose to leave. The point of saying this though, is that I am again quite certain that if I feel strongly enough to say something about this topic and at the same time consider taking my wallet elsewhere after spending as much as I have, then I bet there are quite a few other players of a similar mindset. I'm not advocating a "call to arms" nor is this a reason "flip out" here in the forums. I'm just pointing out that you need to work on your marketing and/or timing. Tomorrow is a new day and there will eventually be new crown store items. Thank you for what you do and keep up the good work keeping us entertained.
