    Bundle seems good (like most the bundles done). Already own Morrowind so no discount joys for me.

    No crown sale? I've been waiting for one from Black Friday, maybe Cyber Monday?
    Toon list:
    PC NA:
    Chip Ahoy: Magicka Templar khajiit WW healer and crafter of metals, clothes, leather and wood
    Rose Scale: Magicka Nightblade argonian WW DPS and 'evil' toon (steals stuff from barrels)
    Snip Ahoy: Stamina Dragonknight khajiit tank
    Walks-Through-Corn: Magicka Templar argonian Vampire tank and also cooks food
    Snowy Kitten: Magicka Sorcerer khajiit WW healer and also makes glyphs
    Valerie Ahoy: Stamina Nightblade khajiit WW DPS
    Giggles-At-Everything: Stamina Sorcerer argonian DPS
    Mixes-With-Mud: Stamina Warden khajiit WW DPS and also mixes potions
    Tyrenan: Magicka Warden khajiit healer
    Always-Brings-Light: Magicka Dragonknight argonian DPS

    PC EU
    Coop Ahoy: Stamina Templar khajiit WW DPS and is my story toon.
    Shadow Ahoy: Magicka Nightblade khajiit Vampire healer.

    Wishlist from ZOS: Chestnut Unicorn mount and the Lilmothiit race, would definitely pay 10K crowns or even 20K crowns for it.

    I'm absolutely loving the free Nix-Ox mount. Boy is it a joy to ride and the sound design is awesome! Not terribly interested in the Black Fredas Bundle because although the Tuxedo Bear is charming, he is way too similar to the Masked Bear of which I am already a proud owner of.

    As has been stated above, curious to see no mention of a sale on Crown Packs for this time of year. Maybe you guys are waiting until most people who stockpiled Crowns from the QuakeCon sale deplete their savings on the new Flame Atronach Crown Crate season? It could be that the next Crown sale will be tied closer to December and the holidays I suppose.

    I guess we shall see!

    I agree with others - the bundle is pretty good but I already have the normal cave bear and I would prefer a crown sale :)

    When are PC and PS4 getting their free play weekend? After you guys gave one to Xbone, it was said ours would be coming up, then nothing.

    (Edited to update timing.)

    Hi. I just realized this might be my chance to cut Steam out of our love triangle but before I do that I wanna make sure this works:

    Currently, there is no way of playing Morrowind content without having steam running in the backround if you bought the chapter update from Steam, right? (Atleast that is what the customer support told me the second time when I contacted them. Before that they said it will be possible after offical launch (I pre-ordered the game and got the access a bit earlier and also asked them about this issue before the chapter was offically out).
    So can I buy another copy of Morrowind to upgrade an account that already has an upgrade in Steam and will there be any conflicts if I launch the game via Steam?

    Oh, and one more thing: When you create the second chapter, could you make sure that players can access the chapter content even when Steam servers are down? The current model is making Steam's problems your problems. Could you take this message to who ever is creating the chapters? I really hate to cancel raids becouse of not being able to connect to Steam.

    You can link and switch an existing ZOS ESO account to Steam, but you cannot switch a Steam account to ZOS. So since your account is bound to Steam already ( as it is since you bought Morrowind from there ), you're stuck with Steam and any issues Steam has. This is one of the requirements Steam gives to mmo devs putting their games there ( Black Desert, Secret World, etc., have the same "locked to Steam once you use Steam" setup ).

    But can I buy a new copy to activate Morrowind outside of Steam and will steam go crazy if it notices I have 2 active morrowind chapters? Now that it is on sale it would be a perfect time to do that.
    Edit: And can I still access my cool emote and warden's bear skin & other deluxe-pre-order-super-additional-collectors-stuff if I only buy a vanilla versioin? I think I'll contact the customer support again...

    I'm still hoping to see a crown sale during the free to play week. I don't expect a heads up if this is the case though, they'll want people to buy full price crown packs instead of waiting for a sale.

    If you want to make a completely new account with ZOS ( meaning no you won't be having anything you had before like pre-order stuff, emotes, and whatnot unless they also come with the new versions your buying), you can use the regular ESO client without Steam even with Steam and your Steam ESO client installed..Steam only cares about the client that's connected to Steam itself. But if you're going to be using your already existing account, then no. Everything on the account attached to Steam stays with Steam.

    In short, you cannot unattach your existing Steam ESO account, or anything on it from Steam regardless what you do.

    But on the other hand, I can play my Warden as if I had Morrowind even when not using steam and just checked that atleast the bear skin and /kissthis are still unlocked in my collection. I just cant acceess Morrowind or Battlegrounds.

    Edit: I need to restart my computer and try again. For the first time in 6 months, I launched the game without launching Steam (I think) and I ACTUALLY CAN ACCESS TO VVARDENFELL?!! Before I start celebrating, I need to check that the Steam is not running somewhere in the background :tongue:
