Miredrum and Vossa-Satl Mementos Disappointing: Change to Looping Emotes?

If any of you are like me, you might stop in Murkmire from time to time to listen to the Vossa-Satl players in Lilmoth or Bright-Throat village, or the miredrum player in Dead-Water village. You might think the beat was a little catchy, and thought It'd be fun to play those at guild gatherings or the like. The Xanmeer crown crates granted that wish... or did they? The mementos do not play the actual songs of bards; the Satl memento plays randomized notes, and the miredrum has a slower, less energetic tempo. This in itself is not horrible, but the worst part by far is how short-lived the mementos are; offering play times of only five seconds or so. So I ask you, players. What do you want out of the Miredrum and Vossa-Satl? Keep them as short-lived mementos, or turn them into proper instrument emotes? Let Zenimax know your thoughts.

    I seriously wanted to play it at my guild's meet-up housing tavern for ambience... can't do that if the thing doesn't loop.

    (edit) Not by video, but here's a vid of some of the jel versions of the singing.

    This is honestly what I wanted and expected, a furnishing version.

    But the fact the memento doesn't loop is, imo, unacceptable. All the other instruments in the game you can play indefinitely and enjoy the actual music. It's silly the Vossa-Satl doesn't, and same for the Mire Drum. I really hope they just aren't working as intended right now.

    Yes please. Looping emotes are definitely better value than mementos and non-looping emotes (Like /flex)

    The recent Hollowjack crown crates had a handful of looping emotes, and I saw a LOT of my friends and other players buying them and using them rather often.

    That on itself should be proof enough that people are willing to buy looping emotes.

    I'd love to see them have both options available. I'd also like many emotes to do the same thing. Some mementos are just much better suited to more permanence.

    It'd also be neat if mementos could become special items we place in houses that could perform the action if interacted with.

    Extending the instruments to the three minutes the Transform mementos received wouldn't hurt.

    But a definite no to a Vossa-Satl emote. We don't need that type of weapon in PVP.

    Juggle Pumpkin is literally the best purchase I've ever made. It's replaced my Male Redguard Dance as my go-to idling emote. But if I could play the song of my people for everyone while we wait for the Tank even better.

    Certainly longer. And the emote option puts the control in the player's hands, so I'm for that.

    True, there is trolling to consider, but would it be any worse than the flute or lute spams? The preferred weapon of trolling however remains the mudball memento... rare is it that I have seen instrument emotes be used for that purpose. Most of the time, instrument players with emotes contribute to the ambience of a location, rather than turn the area into headache. Of course, there's always the option to mute that ambient noise in your settings. As for myself, i once witnessed the 'thousand-flute chorus' at the Orsinium wayshrine, and thought it was kinda funny. No trolling or anything, just a bunch of players getting together to have fun with an emote. I kinda want to see what that would look like with the Satl, not gonna lie.

    I can agree. Having them as looping emotes would be great. Especially for roleplay.

    Yeah, makes it easier to start playing again if an npc walks into and interrupts it, or something.

    Looping emotes hands down. Also, why not having them as interactable furniture? I always say thay having mementos as furnishing ítems would be great.

    Exactly... I have barely seen anyone using the miredrum or Vossa-satl mementos. Likely because one: it's a pain to go into your collections and activate it, and two; if you want easy access to a memento, you have to put it on your actions wheel, which takes up space that something else could use, which is again in of itself a pain. Just make the mementos into emotes already, Zos, please.

    Yeah had these been emotes on a neverending loop, I would have been more inclined to get more of the crates to try for them. But as it is, it's just not worth the price. 100 gems for a 5 second emote is kind of a rip off :( That Vossa-Satl should have been in the 40 or 16 gem tier.. it's not worthy of being a legendary item in it's current form

    I was *extremely* underwhelmed and disappointed to see that they were such ridiculously short mementos even by memento standards. What the actual flurp, ZOS? It's like they actively hate the musical instrument lovers here.

    I got the equipment to do it... need to record the bard songs and post them as youtube videos. Would go great up above in the first post.

    I wish they'd add either the option to sync instruments with people in your group so you can play together.

    or

    Make it like FFXIV / LotRO and make them interactive so you can play yourself

    It would also be cool if they made Almexia's lantern toggleable, it's quite hard to see in some areas but i don't want to change the brightness because it makes the game look weird
