Idea: Upgrades for banker and merchant assistants.

It would be nice if upgrades could be purchased for the banker and merchant assistants. For example, the banker could be upgraded to allow access to your guild bank/stores and the merchant could be upgraded to repair. Thank you.

    Nice idea. I'd be interested in this. How would you like to see the assistants "upgraded"? Pay a few more crowns? Sell "x" amount of goods to the merchant? Upgrade bank space to maximum?

    i agree. I would even pay for the upgrade. @ZOS_GinaBruno is there any chance of this ever happening.

    Maybe as an eso plus perk. Hopefully that's been mentioned in the eso plus idea thread.

    If we could change the merchant and banker's looks and names. Doesn't have to be per toon but account wide-the change would affect them with all. I'd make my merchant into a Cicero look alike in a heartbeat.

    Realistically, I think we'd have to offer to pay cold hard crowns to get ZOS to make this kind of addition.

    I like this idea but they've put a fancier looking version of both assistants in the crown crates. So unfortunately I don't think we're likely to get it.

    A shame though. Because seeing identical assistants everywhere is a slap in the face to immersion.

    I don't see ZOS making changes to the existing banker or merchant. More likely they would put one with more features in the crown store and you would have to buy it a second time. I imagine they aren't doing so because of an anticipated backlash from the players who already bought the merchant / banker and the current controversy regarding the description for them making it sound like you would be able to access these exact features through your summoned merchant / banker.
    I don't always drink Skooma, but when I do I go to the Southwall Corner Club. May you walk on warm sands my friends.

    I think they are expensive enough. ZOS made the questionable choice of deliberately withholding some of their functions, and I would find it offensive if they only did that to charge more later.

    I think bankers and merchants should have normal functionality inside of homes.

    I love the suggestion of customising their appearance, and the suggestion that these are perks for eso plus.
    #1 tip (Re)check your graphics settings periodically - especially resolution.

    'purchased?'

    hell no.

    the 'upgrades' should be given to everyone who bought them and the assistants should be made fully functional, hereafter.

    They are in the Crown Crates now?
    I did not see those two in the list of potential drops...
    Why be normal when you can be better?

    Probably in the next ones Wild hunt. The banker looks like a Imperial called Mercenary something, and Merchant is an Exporter a high elf i think.

    Yeah saw them but why in the heck do they need to make all the male assistants so... ugly? (Granted Tythis has grown on me with that hot voice and that buttoned up vibe I want to ruffle up.) But seriously us ladies and gents out there would like some nice male eye candy too! I want an an attractive male altmer to follow me around. Is that too much to ask for 5k crown?

    Come on, we have needs here that are not getting met but those who who are attracted to the ladies are-not fair. Not fair at all devs.
