I don't want to be the one who spoils the fun, but I personally (and I know I'm not the only one) am wondering about the direction where this is going. The art, the style, I mean. Of course, I know that Dibella is part of the lore for a long time already, and I assume that some of this year's rewards might be by-products of last year's druid theme. But: Both the floating flower and the personality are (or were?) already on PTS. The personality looks extremely exaggerated, unnatural, like a complete caricature. Not sure if I'm allowed to link it here, but there's a Youtube video that shows it (personality demonstration starts at 1:30):
Honestly, who walks like this? Of course, some people will find it funny and use it on their characters, and that's okay. Not much different than the jester personality, although there's one point: The "jester walk" is supposed to be funny, while this new thing is not presented as a caricature. It doesn't say "parody of a snobbish lady". And yeah, this makes me wonder, especially after last year's very straightforward and cliché writing (especially when it comes to characters): Are interesting, nuanced characters still part of the concept, or are you completely going for one-dimensional caricatures now?
Aww...I'm disappointed by the walk. I was hoping we'd finally get a feminine personality that was less over the top than the duchess.

Now I love the Deadlands Firewalker personality for NOT being over-the-top and having an in-your-face idle (the assassin dagger flipping could be cool if it wasn’t sooo frequent and immediate IMO).
It would really be awesome if there was some adjustment/customization available in personalities, even a slider from “subtle” to “caricature” or something! Otherwise, I just have to hope we get more personalities like Brassy Assassin, Deadlands Firewalker, and Tevinter Magister in the future!
I'm going to plant that nirnroot, I mean pet, in my garden
