    It's $40 cheaper than buying everything as it is now, it's a pretty fantastic deal for a brand new player who doesn't already own the game. I'm holding out for a DLC bundle.

    Yeah, I could go for a DLC bundle. It would probably get me back to playing the game. At least for a little while.

    I would bite on that too, because I want to play again but don't like feeling like I have to subscribe to do it and don't want to buy everything piecemeal. As a one time purchase, I would buy it and enjoy. I keep thinking about trading my PS4 copy back in, but I know how much I like the game so I hang on to it.

    I've just noticed they've made a 65% write-down on the base game ($62 -> $22). Isn't it hilarious?

    Only really a good deal if you never intend to subscribe since access to all DLC is included in subscription.

    Also I finally got to CP 160 after getting back into the game and bought the glass motif and crafted my end game stuff...

    Glass armor.

    So nice nice looking.

    I've bought the game a long time ago. Only just recently got back to it as it was still sitting in my Steam library

    Been pretty alright so far, had bought the Thieves Guild pack. It's actually pretty exhilarating going into cities and pinching things and unlocking their safeboxes before they detect me.

    Decided to mess around on the PTS today and made a few edits to my Dunmer using the costume dye, the new hairstyles and one of the new personalities they're adding (Cheerful). I'm quite pleased with the result.



    For those wondering you can buy equipable hair from the crown store, which you can then use on any of your characters forever!
    Also the new personalities they're adding are MUCH better quality than the dark brotherhood assassin personality, they come fully equipped with facial expressions and everything. These features alone will keep me busy for hours as I dye every costume I have.

    Damn, was hoping the new hairstyles would be usable at character customization for new characters without purchasing them. Oh well, hopefully there are a few that don't look like hot garbage, I really dislike the majority of the ones in the game right now : (

    From what I can tell they sadly aren't available via character creation, no. Most of the purchasable ones are, in my opinion, terrible. Only noticed one or two I liked. (Quite a few of the hairstyles we have already seen on Thieves guild or Dark Brotherhood characters, to give you an idea of what they'll look like, others are edits of existing ones).

    Looking through them...did they really re-use hairstyles across both genders? Because hot damn do some of them look truly terrible.

    But of what I think are the new ones (basing off this: http://mmo-fashion.com/blog/eso-new-hairstyles/) there's like...one that doesn't look awful. Ugh, why does so much of this game have to look so boring and generic -_- I LIKE PRETTY THINGS, GIVE ME PRETTY THINGS

    It's a quick cash grab item really. Literally no effort to implement yet stupid people will buy it.

    Eh, I have no problem spending money on new cosmetics, even if they're low effort. I've done so before and will more than likely do so again. But none of these appeal to me so I'll pass them up.

    Has nothing to do with people being stupid.

    Do they still have Veteran ranks?

    No. Veteran Levels were permanently removed in the Dark Brotherhood update on May 31st, 2016.

    I wouldn't waste any effort on Tackhisis, has been trolling for ages. He doesn't care one fig about the answer.

    What has been people's class and build like?

    As a sorcerer I initially been all about daedric summoning and ranged spells. Over time I was experimenting and trying out a Storm Calling melee build with dual wielding. It was actually pretty ok, just getting up close and slashing enemies and calling down the thunder and kept surviving with a shield spell and the Surge spell that lets me heal for each crit hit.

    Night blade leech build. Heals for days.

    Question for people playing this.

    I'm thinking of getting the game the next time it's $20.

    I tried it in beta and thought it was fine, wasn't motivated to buy it though. I also made the mistake of playing it in 3rd person except for the final day of the beta and it didn't feel like a TES game until I tried it in 1st person.

    I've heard there have been tons of changes as well as level scaling for all content ?

    Anyways, questions.

    1, Am I going to regret not buying a more premium version and/or a bundle (especially for the mount)
    2, Is earning a mount that much of a pain after all of the changes ? I'm not looking to collect things such as that, but last I heard it was awful until you get one.
    3, Are there any DLC/Addon's that are considered a must ?
    4, Does the game have raiding, if so is there a casual version like with FF14 ?

    1. If you're just checking it out, I would start by buying the standard version, you can always upgrade later if you want.
    2. I'm probably the wrong person to ask, but I don't think not having a mount is awful, I quite often find myself not even using it. The cheapest mount you can buy is 10k, which you should be able to get by lvl 15-20 just playing normally, depending on whether you vendor items you find or use them for crafting.
    3. I don't know if there are any must have, but I think the Best is Thieves Guild>Dark Brotherhood> Orsinium > Imperial City. Haven't tried shadow of the hist yet.
    4. There are 12 man trials, there's a normal version and a veteran version of each. Normal is easily puggable.
