    Same. I've been waiting for years for the Gloam Wolf to make a return to no avail. Its one of the only Nocturnal-related things I don't have to finish off my collection.

    Upsetti since we've seen some gem exclusives return in previous years, including the Gloam pup in one of the more recent crate seasons, but not this one I guess :expressionless:

    Maybe ZoS could consider bringing it back in early February?

    Holup, so there will be Daedric Wars Celebration, but Colossal Aldmeri Grotto house won't be on the store? Any chance it will be announced in the post about the celebration itself?
    Out of all houses that weren't in shop in 2021, that one is the perfect fit!

    The Nocturnal Indrik is lovely and I do hope that it will be available for Crowns! I would also consider purchasing the Evergloam Champion outfit style except that it unfortunately exemplifies the frequent problem of floating tassets. We need hide shoulders and hide tassets options! 🥺

    The Meridia statue is really lovely and I’ve been quite glad I bought one last time! <3

    I’m glad to see the Psijic crates return too — at last I shall have my Skein Spider! :blush:

    Do Monster Helm styles have a chance of dropping from the dungeon boss only while the shoulder style is available? I’ve never gone after one before but the Baron Zaudrus helm is the BEST MONSTER HELM STYLE EVER!!! Please make more like this! 😁

    ZOS, please - make buying another merchant or banker cheaper. With 5k crowns I pay mostly for functionality and that was acceptable price for it. But now I have this functions, so I will never, ever pay another 5k crowns just for new skin of functionality already owned! It's just not worth it.

    Was hoping for Ossa Accentium also - saving my crowns again I suppose.

    New merchant and banker skins at the same price as the originals, with no upgraded service features ? That's a hard pass.

    ESO Plus was originally advertised with a monthly free item...Current item appeared in November, next item will last until mid-February - seems 12 a year is becoming 8 per year ? A disappointing choice by whomever responsible for that one; slow erosion of trust and respect only ends in a collapse unless firmly and fully rectified.

    Never really been a huge fan of Crown Store 'carrots' tbqh. Conversely, i am enjoying playing the actual GAME very very much. (still here $ubbed ESO+ since 2013 B) )

    Personally, i wish @ZOS_ would take half the monthly Crown Store re-tread items OUT of such a consumer UN-friendly business-model and instead start incorporating them (including Crates) as more rewards from in-game QUESTS.

    Or better yet, turn them into schematics/motifs and make them player craftable & discoverable...from 'leads' or 'dailys'...that only ESO+ subscribers could acquire. Would be an interesting experiment imo , for 2022, to see whether or not monthly profits increased just as much (or more) .

    The paintings count as larger than the statuettes. I’m not saying I agree with that or not, but that seems to me to be the intent. I like the variety, but I would really like to see something like a voucher system, where you get two every month that you log in with ESO+ and then you could use it on any of the stauettes or paintings, with them costing 2 and 3 vouchers each or something to that effect. :)

    I do agree with what others have posted; it would be great if once you bought one banker/merchant, you could get additional for maybe 1000 Crowns each since you would not be paying for any additional functionality. Fortunately for me, the Khajiit assistants were available when I started playing and they are the ones I would choose if I can only have one set anyway! =3

    Can you please pass along feedback to that team to leave more things in the store permantently? It's frustrating that so much content is time-gated, they're leaving money on the table. Case in point, Bastian's hair - why was that temporary?

    Was hoping for Ossa Accentium also - saving my crowns again I suppose.

    New merchant and banker skins at the same price as the originals, with no upgraded service features ? That's a hard pass.

    ESO Plus was originally advertised with a monthly free item...Current item appeared in November, next item will last until mid-February - seems 12 a year is becoming 8 per year ? A disappointing choice by whomever responsible for that one; slow erosion of trust and respect only ends in a collapse unless firmly and fully rectified.

    I agree with you regarding the ESO+ "monthly selection" (to use their term) becoming "not so monthly selection." Of course, it was never a "selection" in the first place. I disagree that it's because the painting is larger (as someone else suggested), as we got a Lleyawiin painting around Blackwood's launch that was only up for a month. They have slowly backpedaled on some of the "new" benefits they added a few years ago. I suspect they just don't want to think about ESO+ much, since they've got to concentrate on what to give the crate gamblers. It would be great to have some variety - things other than housing items. I'd also like to see some exclusive items to purchase and/or discounts on new items (not just returning items or the 15-pack crown crate).

    As for the new banker/merchant, it'd be great if they were cheaper, but it's not any different than all the mount re-skins. Mounts serve a function just as the assistants do, and yet players have no problem paying over and over again for various re-skins (even gambling for them) when the function is no different from the level-up mount or the few mounts you can purchase with gold in game.

    As for the showcase itself, this is the first month in a LONG TIME that I've been interested in purchasing a few things. There have been gems here and there, but there are quite a few items of interest to me in this month's showcase.

    Oh...and as for the Whitestrake Mayhem celebration, I'm guessing that will be next month. Last year saw a reduction in the number of events per quarter from 4 to three, so I'm guessing we'll get that event next month.

    i really dont like the idea of buying extra copies of assistants like merchant or banker, but i also REALLY like clockwork/dwemer style stuff so i *may* be tempted to purchase the factotum assistants

    there are so few really nice clockwork/dwemer things that come from the crown store that i usually tend to get them if the cost is reasonable

    as a matter of fact why do we not have any actual spider mounts if they have to be an animal (the nix-ox mounts are the closest we have and i dont like those)

    you know what would make a good mount, one of those daedric worms (like the "unmaker" WB in deadlands)
