A special ESO tiger mount will be awarded to core players.
This afternoon, Matt Firor, Game Director for The Elder Scrolls Online made a special announcement sure to please core players. According to this month’s The Road Ahead blog post on The Elder Scrolls Online website, Firor announced that players who have been with the game since the beginning will be awarded a special ESO tiger mount:
As I alluded to in our special ESO Live show on the day we announced Tamriel Unlimited, I’m very happy to share that we’ll be granting an exclusive mount to everyone who has been with us from the beginning: a special Striped Senche (giant cat) mount, given only to those who are eligible. If you see someone prowling the battlefield on one, you’ll know you’re looking at one of the core members of the community, someone who has been exploring Tamriel with us for quite some time.
UPDATE: The tiger mount was not released prior to 3/17/15 as initially anticipated. The mount will be released within a week of the 17th, however — this according to the devs on ESO Live – Episode 13 (at 7:34 in the video).
UPDATE 2: The tiger mount was released today, March 19, 2015. If the tiger doesn’t arrive within the next few days, players are to contact The Elder Scrolls Online Team here. I’ve posted a screenshot of the mount at the end of this post.
The exclusive ESO tiger mount will be in addition to a nine month reward granted to members of The Elder Scrolls Online subscriber loyalty program (the Mask of Cheerful Slaughter). The gifting of both the ESO tiger mount and the unique costume mask is the first time ZeniMax Online Studios (ZOS) has rewarded loyal players with something other than a vanity pet. From the early comments posted on the official Elder Scrolls Onlineforums, it’s safe to say that players are very pleased.
