    Been looking forward to that white horse.

    Very happy.

    White horse and jeboa <3 And return of peddler pets, bless from the divines. I also really hope that Dawnbreaker sword outfit IS a part of crown Meridian motif.

    Is this right @ZOS_SarahHecker ?

    "The Moon-Sugar Meadow home will be available in the Crown Store on all platforms starting on August 29. Furnished and unfurnished versions will be available."

    Just asking as furnished version was not available on PTS

    Wow...what a craptastic month, and I'm usually able to find something positive in their showcases. Now, for new players or players who missed out on the crapton of returning items, it's a great month. For the rest of us, however, there's just a few limited-time items that are new, plus far too many gem exclusives. And the only "permanent" items added are the horse and pet that come with the upcoming DLC. Well, and Moon Sugar Meadow, which I have no interest in. But, since it appears to be a "permanent" addition, it might be priced ok for those that want it.

    And, ESO+ members get deals on returning stuff and gambling. Yay?

    This is the first time I think I've been genuinely disappointed in a Showcase. The only thing of moderate interest to me this month is the merchant costume, but whether I buy it depends on how it looks and how it's priced.

    I guess it's a good thing to be saving crowns. Hopefully, there will be some things in future I'll want to spend them on.

    Not gonna comment on the cash grab skill lines, but will the Elsweyr furniture pack that you guys recently pulled in the last minute be for sale any time soon? I and others don't want to wait for many months to get that furniture pack, just because you messed up with the Jode's Embrace house ...

    This game is sorely lacking in puppies. Now we get a bunch and they are gem exclusive? Boo, growl. :(

    Not happy about the purchasable skill lines ... Not one bit..!

    EDIT:
    Its prob's just been done to get people out the LFG system. Cuz' nobody is going to be leveling undaunted now.
    I think its a really REALLY bad move, and will give this game a p2w reputation.

    Oops, you are correct in that is a typo. We'll update the article accordingly. Thanks!

    You have to level them and do the content once before being able to purchase them. So, it's not p2w. If you could make a new account and come out of character creation and immediately buy them? You'd have a point. Having a choice on whether to spend your time or your money isn't a bad thing.

    I know I'll probably buy the Psijic line for other characters, that's a bit of a pain. There isn't that much to it than running all over Tamriel and sealing breaches and then some minor story quests.

    I haven't seen this mentioned elsewhere but wouldn't buying a skill line in some cases cause you to lose out on a few things? The Thieves Guild line is normally leveled up by doing the stories. Many of the quests provide a skill point, I don't know if buying the skill line gives you credit for the skill points and story achievements. Also not sure if you automatically get the rewards, XP and gold each story provides.

    The Velidreth Arms Pack will be available on all platforms for a limited time from August 28 to September 25 at 10am EDT. During the same time period, the Velidreth Mask Style Page will have a chance to drop from the final boss in the Veteran Cradle of Shadows dungeon, and the Velidreth Shoulder Style Page will have a chance to drop from Urgarlag’s Mystery Coffer

    Hey @ZOS_JessicaFolsom @ZOS_SarahHecker , can you confirm if these will be available from the Undaunted chests? Scalebreaker will be live at this time and I recall on PTS the chests were replaced by the Pledge Merchants.

    The chests will be replaced by the merchants, correct. You can still get the Shoulder Style drops from the Mystery Coffer by spending 1 key (which is essentially what you were doing at the Undaunted chests pre-Scalebreaker.)

    "Instantly advances the Assault and Support Alliance War Skill Lines to their maximum rank. All abilities contain within these Skill Lines arrive unranked, allowing you to advance and more the skills as you see fit."

    Seems like a typo, should it be "...and morph the skills"? @ZOS_SarahHecker

    Other than that, as a newer player I'm genuinely excited about many of these items. And I don't mind if players can purchase i.e. Mages Guild 10 if they already did the grind on their mains.

    Will sadly miss getting tickets from the Orsinium event due to vacation, but can't wait to get that Meridian Crafting Motif from the Depths of Malatar. For how long will it be dropping, from Aug 7 until the end of the month? I've already done Malatar on vet, just need to beat HM now :smile:

    Ffs not that i particularly like them selling skill lines but

    1) it’s been asked for regularly on these forums

    2) just how many people are playing under 50 pvp? As a % of total players? Characters level up so quickly how much time is spent there?

    3) At least you have to have completed the skill line at least once.

    It’s all utterly ridiculous.

    Can we have the old chests as furnishings please?

    Thanks for clarifying. I forgot there was a random box on the pledge store.
