In your opinion, are any motifs worth paying Crowns for?

Basic motifs, clearly not, inexpensive price in gold and often can find for free.

Motifs from regional dailies, I think not, considering that it only takes patience/persistence to earn them and maybe several thousand gold to finish, certainly not worth 5k Crowns in my opinion.

Now those that drop from DLC dungeons I occasionally do on vet or rare drops from trials, I’m not sure.

Specifically, I am interested in the Sunspire motif. I haven’t looked up every price on TTC to figure out approximately the cost in gold versus crowns.

I know relative value is subjective but I would appreciate hearing others’ opinions on this. I need to deliberate before making large purchases! :sweat_smile:

    Even the most annoying ones to farm see their price drop dramatically once they get included in the Anniversary Event's drop table. I'm willing to be patient.

    Sounds like you didn't know you mainly hurt yourself more than other players, @Froil ... ?

    There are only a finite number of chests that can spawn in each zone at any given time. If you leave chests unlooted then new ones can't spawn ... which increases the time on your chest circuit through Vvardenfell.

    At least that kind of overland motif grind doesn't exist in newer zones. So, you can't make the same mistake twice.

    I literally farmed through the entire zone and I knew every single overland chest spawn, they were very very frequently there whenever I got to them and no I didn't suffer from me leaving behind trash.

    I believe Grim Harlequin is Crown Store only, so there's that, if/when it's on sale and you like it.

    Do you really need a whole motif? The chest piece makes the most difference to your look. I bought Sunspire Chests with in-game gold and left it at that.

    Didn't Welkynar already drop in some event? I'd be weary, because as soon as an older motif drops in an event, prices plummet.

    That’s a good point — I most want the Sunspire chest and legs. The whole motif would be progress toward the Master Crafter achievement, but surely there are less expensive motifs I have yet to complete!

    Thank you all for sharing your thoughts! :blush: I think I will buy the pages I want with gold after all. :)

    If I were in a rush to know Honor guard or refabricated, I would be looking at crown store options. The latest 3 dlc dungeon motifsv(meridian, coldsnap, and Moongrave) are also quite expensive and right now I'm only buying pages occasionally.

    Trading gold for motif gifts is definitely worth it imo. I wouldn't spend crowns I had purchased with $$ on them though.

    Are you sure that's your final answer??

    I just did a quick 10-minute chest run in Vvardenfell ... and found three chest spawn points that looked like the screenshot below.

    How many farming hours did you think you added to yourself by leaving chests behind?

    Bottom line: Before you attempt to scam other players make sure you're not scamming yourself first. ;)
