    Sorry for the double post. Was it supposed to be enabled today since the post was from yesterday? Or is gifting being reenabled tomorrow?

    This will go live on Oct.11, as noted in the post.

    Thanks for the update! Can this "list of factors" please be communicated upfront? That might be helpful in cutting down on some confusion and resulting support tickets. I understand it's evolving, but it'd be good to get more baseline beyond the one factor you shared.

    We are not publishing the full criteria list as that just gives a roadmap for bad actors to look like real players. If you are not initially eligible, you are welcome to contact Customer Support after we re-enable Crown Store gifting functionality tomorrow.

    I am actually releived that you aren't publishing that criteria because honestly that would just mean that it would be just a matter of time before this would happen again.

    Is there any other information concerning policy that we should be aware of when it comes to gifting?

    For example, can we still gift someone for coins? In the past, this was explicitly stated to be allowed by Gina Bruno.

    What if we want to give a new player a gift? Can they receive gifts even though they can't give them?

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was one of the people who was pretty upset about this. I didn't stop subscribing (on any acc) and I didn't stop playing, but I was butthurt. Pretty butthurt. I worried we'd never get it back. I worried I'd have to find some other game to play. I worried my favorite game in the world would lose some of its luster. I was a BIG BABY ABOUT IT.


    And you came back with an awesome solution for those of us who love ESO and do want you guys to make your money... those of us who wait on the first of the month for the release (WILL THERE BE A GUAR I NEED?!?!?) THANK YOU for a solution that keeps honest people doing what they love!

    Thank you for allowing me to continue buying guar in the way that I like to. And sorry I was so butthurt <3

    Does this also mean that Crates will be giftable again? :o
    Or will they still be disabled while everything else is giftable again?

    Crown Crate gifting is part of this, so you will be able to gift those again.

    Yaaay! Thank you for the answer, Kevin! 😎

    So, if I have a beta monkey and the senche tiger for subbing uninterrupted for one year on PC and transferred to console when it launched, I should be ok right?
    Wow 10 years. lol

    It depends.

    Did you pray to Akatosh everyday?
    How many soulgems did you sacrifice to [snip]?
    And last but not last how many crowns did you purchase?

    What about items that were unavailable to gift during the lockdown? I have friends who can't afford to buy things for themselves, so I like to gift them things they need when I have the means. I was unable to gift Sereyne, for example, to a friend who really was sad to miss her again because gifting was unavailable. Will we be able to have these items come back to the Crown Store for a few days so we can gift items that weren't able to be gifted due to the lockdown?

    Having three accounts, being able to gift to my other accounts makes life so much easier. However, the one thing I am not seeing is if we are allowed to gift to others in exchange for gold, mats or anything else. If we don't know what we aren't allowed to do, it's hard to follow the rules, and nobody here wants to get banned or lose their gifting privileges entirely.

    But a big thanks for getting gifting re-enabled :smile:
