    Especially psyched for the evening dress. I just wish it wasn't so poofy, like the wedding dress.

    @Anlaemar we've stated that we'll be sharing more details about Imperial City in July--that's pretty soon. :)

    Ok, not much talk about that time frame that I've noticed so that's just my fault. Thanks for the information, though. :)

    Can someone please to me the lore behind the ice horse in more detail? How this follow lore of the TES games? From my understanding, summoning Oblivion critters only be done by train mages, not every Joe on the street and his mother. So ZOS, how can you that everyone has an ice horse from the planes of Oblivion and still keep it with estabish lore?

    TBH, I don't like the fire horse or the stupid bear for the same reason I don't like an ice horse -- it seems ZOS is throwing lore out of the window for $_$. I still hate the idea in games that says: "if it can move, let us make a mount with it."

    I can live with gold farmers, bugs, delay updates or server crashs, the quickest way to drive me and many others who love the TES game lore is to throw it out of the window. Lore SHOULD always go 1st.

    I agree, completely. Bethesda has usually been very good with this sort of thing; I can only hope that Zenimax learns from mistakes. The extreme liklihood is that they are using them as money-sinks for us gullable idiots.
    The rest of the items of the items in this preview looks cool and I am digging the Gothic dress. It is / will be hard to over look lore mistakes like fire, ice and bear mounts. Worst case, I can wait for BGS who is the true master of TES games to make TES 6 and respect their lore. ESO is a spin off game after all, I am still loading out hope for it in the lore department. If ZOS keep breaking TES lore, then ZOS will force me to leave ESO.

    Can anyone ( I hope ZOS can) help me with my lore concerns? Thanks.

    You're not alone. It was like this with me when I played LotRO on the dedicated RP server Laurelin - so many things were lore-breaking, eventually culminating in me leaving because Turbine went for buck against book.

    really enjoy this! the new mount and pet is great, and the outfit is very nice. I just wish there was more male outfits that stand out. We have the wedding dress, and now this Evening dress. why not have the same for male characters?

    It's a high fantasy game. A neon green bloated pig with pink glows and golden wings can be lore correct in a magical world as Nirn. Every Joe on the street and his mother probably beat Molag Bal by now and any class can do overpowered moves anyways. If there is an universe that magic stuff is so common is the Elder Scrolls one.

    Like the looks of the horse. Unfortunately, I won't get it or any other horse due to the huge, ugly and obnoxious horse saddlebags that appear with purchased storage slots. I've sent feedback on this numerous times but guess there are no plans for the Devs to adjust the horse bag art or at least allow us to hide them. Oh well, guess I'll keep riding my cats.

    Lore went out the window the moment they decided to have a "chosen one" storyline in an MMO setting.

    Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

    No discounts this time? Pity I was hoping to spend my 500 console crowns on something.
    720+ CP Dunmer Stam DK and Bosmer Stam Templar mains.

    Waiting for the day when ALL of Craglorn becomes soloable by the average player. *Glares at group delves and the lower Craglorn Mage and Warrior questlines*.

    Also waiting for the day when characters not created in Morrowind are allowed to have that extra skill point we were denied!

    That would be more details than you announced round about last September when you said it was close to being finished I assume.

    They're real physical books, not in-game lorebooks. There are two, The Infernal City and Lord of Souls. The bear in question was ridden by one of Hircine's hunters.

    Not an in-game book. It's an actual hold-in-your-hands book, one of two. *checks* The bear mount is in the first one, "The Infernal City" by Greg Keys. Part 3, Chapter 7, appears on page 241 if it makes a difference. And it's rider is a werebear.

    I only train capacity up to 19 on most of my toons for this very reason.
    I wish you could turn on/off the straps/bags/armor for mounts.
    I also wish you had different looking upgrades and the ability to dye them.
    I didn't bother getting the black senche after seeing a fully upgraded one. Red leg warmers was just a deal breaker for me.

    There is no reason it should exist. We had this discussion before, and somehow decided that it is a normal horse that has been fed some kind of Frostsalt diet or potion over a period of time.

    It's not the first time the community has to come up with lore-appropriate explanations, but in this case it feels unsettling because it's such an obvious cash-thing. Some word from Lawrence Schick on this would be great, though.
