      I read elswer that you can buy dyes that you haven't obtained. As a former Emperor and legate... This upsets me greatly. I don't even get a lot of distinguished novelties for my exploits, and to keep hardcore nerds in an MMO, games need it. To boot, I played wow when this first came out, to wait for a console release. And 99% of them don't even know what emperors regalia is. But " that really awesome red and black, that looks better than mine, bro ", is ( soon to be was ), RIP. Like if you cry everytime.

        I'm surprised another DLC has been "announced" so close to the release of Dark Brotherhood (okay, not really surprised). I'm more interested in the appearance tokens and additional hairstyles etc. The character customization is pretty decent, but the game lacks any way to change your appearance later on like a lot of MMO's do (even Skyrim had the ability). I really need it to fix my body dimensions. Looked great when I started, but certain costumes and armor look a little wonky.
