    No Crowns on sale this time. Everything that will be on sale has now been announced with this article.

    Wow, only 20% off on only just the Merchant assistant(s) this year, and not even the banker to pair with as well?
    I'm glad I snagged both the Merchant and Banker for 50% off during last year's sale. 20% off on only 1 of them this year seems like a complete and total insult -- especially after the recent failed events and terrible server performance...

    But article says "However, when the sale for the above item ends, a new one begins for these individual items:

    Ezabi the Banker Assistant
    Tythis Andromo the Banker Assistant
    Mundus Stones (acquired from the Housing Editor)"

    So the banker will be available for sale

    I was going to check the discount on the Dungeon DLCs. Then I remember that I never buy dungeon DLCs so that when I'm not subbed I can have them excluded from random dungeons in group finder. Especially when leveling alts and they hit level 45 and random dungeons end up like 80% DLC. Getting a DLC dungeon as a random when the drops are below max level and useless is the worst.

    I'll stick with never buying a DLC dungeon, even though I enjoy clearing them a few times.

    I'm pretty sure they were not 50% off last year but 3500 crowns (instead of 5000). I got myself an Andromo back then.

    Glad to see the New Moon crates going for lower than I originally planned on getting them for per pack, and the wolf mount is kinda nice...

    But I'd been holding out hope we'd have seen another Crown Pack sale sometime in October or November before now, since every other crown pack sale this year had been separated by a 3 month period... no such luck. Looking back after my disappointment, seems we probably won't see one til late December or even next year in January. So that's a huge bummer.

    Also none of the other big houses up during the holiday sale? I know more than one person who was ready to drop money on houses like the Aldmeri Grotto and especially the Hunter's Glade, but so far no mention of those. Not sure why they'd skip out on that opportunity to sell more big houses.
    Give Bosmer their stealth back you cowards

    I was hoping the Grim Harlequin motif would finally make an appearance. I would have actually spent crowns on that. Nothing here catches my fancy though.

    This one is also quite underwhelmed by the sales being offered. Foolishly this one hoped for some kind of extra incentive due to the plethora of problems with the game over the past few months.

    I would trade in Nuzhimeh the Merchant and Tythis Andromo the Banker for these two above, any day.
    But ZOS's Crown Store/Monetization Team is incompetent and gave us cats instead of providing all of the options.

    Cats are far cooler. Those 2 are just more of the same.

    Seriously. What a poor decision. This is pathetic compared to last year. With this game looking so amateurish I'm stunned the opportunity wasn't taken to make amends with deep discounts on lots of items. I was anticipating the sale going live and right now I don't even feel like playing.

    Unfortunately the only way to affect change is to let your money do the talking. I haven't given much thought to dropping ESO plus until now. Pretty disgusted at the moment. Bah humbug!

    I love the Alfiq but why can’t we have all of these options so we could each buy the one(s) we like! :) They could have at least introduced these two assistants with the sale, offer us something new... I would have loved to hire that Elven merchant!

    I’m really disappointed by the Black Fredas sale offerings too. :( I had hoped the pictures bundle was a mount and furnishings — not items easily obtained in game. Even as a newer player myself with not a single character yet 60/60/60 in riding, I would never pay Crowns for that. Nor XP Scrolls, which I do appreciate as log in and level rewards but again, would never pay Crowns for. :/ But to each their own and the above wouldn’t even matter to me if their were other options — like some costumes I’ve been wanting, a return of some furnishings packs I missed out on, some houses as there were last year (I was hoping for Tel Galen). Based on previous years and the assumption of a goal to sell Crowns at full price, I had expected that there would be lots of tempting offerings, but alas... :disappointed:

    Was really hoping for the collector's editions of the DLC. Wonder if I should get them on discount and hope for an upgrade later :/
