It's also really strange that all three overland sets are the same style. And as much as we all gripe about Antiquity motifs, this would have been a perfect time to bring in Ancestral Dunmer (or even Ancestral Chimer) just like Ancestral Breton was popping in in High Isle.
how many more motifs do dark elves need to satisfy you?
The "why?" questions can only be answered only by Zenimax, though i doubt they will bother.
The reasons of changes might be trivial: employees are leaving, lost interest, coding quality decay.. we hardly hear frank answers, if we hear anything at all.
i have already asked about missing 109 and i doubt i ll get any answer anytime.
In 2017, Morrowind had 7 motifs (Ashlander, Buoyant Armiger, Hlaalu, Militant Ordinator, Morag Tong, Redoran, Refabricated, Telvanni) why such decrease, ZOS ?
Since there will be no new zone in Q4, they probably will put new motifs in Necrom for whole year. It's a shame, because they told that they change year formula to make bigger chapters, but for now it look like there will cut content AND smaller chapters (compared to first chapters). If Q3 update will have standard amount of Qol and bug fixing as it was with normal dungeon dlc's I will be really angry.
Or you can just make all chapter motifs with same style stoneWhen you consider that each new motif also requires a new style mat, and how players without the craft bag have complained about the ever-growing number of style mats in the game, at some point cutting back on the number of new motifs each DLC or chapter seems inevitable.
