About crownstore showcase (Crown Crafting Motif: Grim Harlequin)

This new motif is crown store exclusive if I understand correcly ? Just another step in greed. Since the crown store has been released, you stopped to make bundle costumes, after increased significantly the price of single costume. Added more items available only for a limited time (with higher price). And now you add in crown store the first motif crown store exclusive.
Just another disppointment from zenimax. :(

I'm really afraid about what you are preparing for the community with yours future DLC and your game in general.

Crown Crafting Motif: Grim Harlequin

Do you like dark humor, grim but funny? We've got a stylish motif for you! As Chamberlain Haskill explains, “My Lord Sheogorath has directed me to compile a guide for those seeking to create 'Grim Harlequin' arms and armor, so that the Mad God's mortal servants may have a way to make all their equipment look the same. Of course, this standardization runs counter to all other cult practices, and is insane on the face of it. What's your point?"

The Grim Harlequin style will be available on all platforms for a limited time during the Witches Festival, from October 13 to November 1.

    Er, as I recall it was tied to an event. I don't think this is a sale, so much as the event goes from Oct 13th to Nov...

    As to Wether they are selling it in the store in ADDITION to that, idk and idc. I'll have the full motif without spending a dime.

    I thought it was as a reward for the event, but I've been searching the forums and everyone reference the Hallowjack motif being the event reward...

    @ZOS_JessicaFolsom Wanna clear up the confusion here? We're confused :(

    [EDIT] *puts on detective hat* well they did move this thread to the crown store forum...

    @MissBizz Crown store exclusive, there is no doubt, nothing in achievement about this Grim Harlequin motif.

    If it's Crown Store only I'll pass. Half the fun of knowing the Motif is the 'lookie lookie what I found!' aspect, and if using it is just going to show off how willing I am to spend money, I'm sorry but no.

    Also, if it's Crown Store only where in Oblivion would we get style stones? Crown Store Mimic stones there too? No thank you.

    @WhiteCoatSyndrome Oh goodness... You make a very good point.

    Hey, just spend some $$ to buy the motif.. but don't worry, you also need to spend more $$ to actually craft the thing after you use up the couple stones we give you.

    I really like this style and I would have considered delaying crafting my new set if I had thought it would be coming out with the Witches Festival.

    However, no way I'm dropping 5000 crowns on a motif. If that's the only way to get this nice style, that's very disappointing.

    Nice big middle finger for master crafters. I was excited to farm this motif because it looks really nice but cant really afford to put 30e to a single motif.... Crown crates ticked me off really badly and this just adds bad feels on top of it. There's better ways of making the crown store nicer and this is far from it.

    Not to invoke the p2w debate butttt.......

    For 5k crowns not many people will buy it. This means that a select few will be able to make serious gold out of paying for it with crowns and then selling gear, esp as seems a nice set.

    Seems a shame and a slippery slope.

    @lockator As well, they will surely make the crafting charge quite pricey if they need to buy mimic stones in order to craft it...

    I hope this is obtainable in game...

    I think out of all the motif styles there are maybe 3-5 I personally like tops. The other ones were obtained just for completion and the ability to craft what other players want. I lose that when Crown Store only motifs come out. A little piece of my crafter dies.

    I don't mind subbing and paying for DLC and earning the motifs while playing said DLC, but not outright buying the motifs.

    And if Zeni takes the obvious other route and binds anything in that style to the crafter's account, it's not very useful as an actual Motif.

    Perhaps there is some hope?

    Looks like there are working item codes for the individual pages, as well as a non crown store full book... HERE

    Hm maybe they selling it now for limited time and 6 months later it will drop ingame... that wouldnt be fair for the people, which paid 5000 crowns, I think.

    I have no problem if this is a Crown Store only item. Why? Because I will gladly pay for something that I like and I know I don't have to gamble for.

    ... darnit. You have a point.

    I agree that it's nice to have something available for a set price and not all gamble-tastic. Conversely, this just adds to the general sense of "meh" that surrounds crafting. It's not like I really use a bunch of motifs given how many sets are dropped only. Now we're going to start seeing crown only motifs pop up? Meh.
