    I'm guessing this doesn't count for the daily log-in for the log-in reward (because someone somewhere will wonder that.)

    Are the purchases for *anything* in the Crown store or select items only? At the top the article mentions " Crown Packs, an ESO Plus membership, and The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset Standard Edition" but later it talks about general shopping and getting a type of crate for purchasing through twitch, suggesting other items will eventually be available.

    I don't mind console players not receiving this. But what I not know, temporary or permanently for pc only?

    It Was A Glorious 2+ years in Scourge PS4 EU, especially during both the 1st and 2nd Scourge. As well as my time in Haderus PS4 EU. What will my journey bring, during my time in Shor, We shall wait; for my journey has only begun. Shor has ended as well as Yol, both hath gone short lived. Kaal and Laa alas are my new journey. Save for Laa replaced short lived Yol; The shortest campaign I've ever been. How many more campaigns must be renewed and delivered? No one knows, till the end. It's not the end, but only just the beginning. What do I mean by this? I don't really know honestly, I keep pondering this myself everyday.

    Also, just want to add that although you will get a the Crown Crate after making a purchase, but you also will have a chance to get it through Twitch Drops too.

    I guess this is good for getting more people into watching or streaming ESO but not something which I care for personally.
    Depending how the drops are earned I might just leave streams on whilst I am working on RP stuff or something, I just generally am not a stream watching person.

    Generally that's how it works. Other companies let you have the stream up and you'll have a chance to get something. Quake Champions and Warframe are two that come to mind immediately. Warframe you need to be watching for a certain amount of time and you get something specific. Quake you get loot boxes just for lurking. But as the article says, you need to be a in a streamers channel that is "partnered" with the company.

    OK, so sounds like it's limited selection, possibly on a seasonal or promotional basis, or maybe "TBD" at present. :smile:

    More content that people have to go outside of the game to get does not make me want to go get it, it just makes me resent that I'm going to see it in the game.

    Maybe an add-on could hide all Crown Store stuff and make it look like generic skins, outfits, and mounts?

    No snark, I really wonder if that is possible.

    Could also come in handy for those RP people and others who feel their immersion is intruded upon by some of the stuff that's out there like ice horses and cowboy hats.

    Excluded so far. As usual, they have to deal with Sony and Microsoft with accounts and what not.

    I haven't watched any Twitch streams so someone please correct me if I'm wrong here. I will be able to earn a welkynd oroborus crown crate for watching something related to the game as opposed to actually playing the game?

    That seems a little strange, but I guess it supports streamers.

    nothing about apex mounts
    exclusive Senche of Scarlet Regret mount or Senche Cub of Scarlet Regret pet.....
    Note that beyond the typical “Common" and “Fine" rewards found in regular Crown Crates and (on rare occasions) the above mount and pet, Welkynd Ouroboros Crown Crates do not contain any other tiers of items.

    that's all

    From the article:

    Note that beyond the typical “Common" and “Fine" rewards found in regular Crown Crates and (on rare occasions) the above mount and pet, Welkynd Ouroboros Crown Crates do not contain any other tiers of items.

    So, the answer is no. Just consumables with a rare chance at the mount or pet.
