When are we going to see these in the game? It was said in the past that these features would come to the game.

I know for me, I chose to be an orc at the beginning of the game and the massive changes to both racials and game mechanics has vastly changed my preference of race. For me, the choices I made are not representative of the class/race combo I had originally intended to play.

Price doesn't have to be low either I'd probably shell out about 50$ for this (its not like I'm going to do this all the time).

    Yes please. Just racial change ability, not class. Passives should be able to change, but class changes would ruin the game with everyone flowing to the current OP class. Changes in passives on the other hand wouldn't be as dramatic.

    Races having their own quirks is such an ingrained part of TES lore, that it should only be removed the same time as Elder Scrolls is removed from the game's title.

    I don't think anyone wants to see them removed from the game.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno can we get some input here? This is a feature that is much needed and long overdue. Please drop this in via crown store or something during the Orsinium dlc.

    We're working on both along with a full suit of character re-customization options (what people often refer to as the "barber shop") but we do not have an estimated timeframe for their release. They will not be in for Orsinium, but know that we are actively working on this feature.

    Yes!!!!

    best in slot: is the armor, weapon, clothing look, pet, or no pet, jewelry, race, class, skill choices, amount of DPS, and skin color best fit to you and the way you wish to play and makes you feel good and performs what YOU think it should be.

    worst in slot: what you read in zone chat, and forum comment, and forum thread, and you tube video, and live streamer advice, and class rep advice, and guild chat advice, and whisper told you to wear, and use for skill, and dress like, and use for weapon and armor.

    You keep telling this since march already. Sorry but my understanding on "actively working on this feature" may be something different.

    As it was already said quite often, just let us buy a scroll/token that enables us to use the character-creator to re-customize our character during the next login.

    I know you already got something similar in game right now as this is exactly how I got my name changed a while back.

    No, this isn't a barber shop you can actually walk into and have a nice, separate interface for but that would be the premium version which you may work on later. But please hurry up and work on a "right now" solution which you should have been since march...

    Cut them some slack. Considering I hate the idea of race changes and appearance is not a showstopper, I'd prefer them to be looking at more important things like bug fixes, class abilities, DLCs. It's comments like this that make me hope they take their time.

    Well, of course my comment comes from only me, assuming ther team that fixes bugs, is responsible for combat and class balancing are not the ones working on a barber shop...

    It really should not be a paid change....if I can dye armor and shields for free why would I be subject to pay for cosmetic changes on my character elsewhere?

    Race, gender, faction and names are different but from the tone of all threads people keep saying I will pay XYZ for this feature.....just wanting to say for me its crazy to be charged for cosmetic changes on the character creation screen.

    Lastly...the issue with going back to the character creation screen is the lighting and such are not ideal and cause us to finalize characters who come out looking completely different in-game

    Funny how so many players don't want to be held accountable for their own decisions/choices when creating new characters- instead they want to make it the game developers fault and therefore they should get something FREE.

    Nah, I made my choices, including character name, hair style, race, etc... and I'll take responsibility for those changes and will gladly pay to make changes due to my own original decisions. I also know that any changes to racial passives was due to them trying to improve the game and won't hold it against them for this effort.

    Will there be an in-game character customization with what you and the development consider to be small character customization changes? Such as hair colour and hair type changes only?

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom

    I completely understand how huge character customization changes such as cheek size, jaw size and so on would make sense in the Crown store. But simply changing your hair colour and hair type would be a nice quality of life change for people who like to play around with their characters often and on a whim; the same way we can dye stuff without going to the Crown store.

    I tend to agree that this doesn't make a lot of sense to me, there should be some integrity to selecting a specific race.

    That said I'm not against some sort of creative changes to the way races function. I have read on the forums interesting ideas about how to redistribute racials such that you have a maximum number of points you can put in among a larger pool of racial options. So there is that idea to consider.
