FASHION AND OUTFITS

FASHION AND OUTFITS

ESO Fashion and Outfits are a very important part of most ESO players. Not for nothing does ESO have hundreds of Motif Styles and Costumes, which players can acquire through various methods. For this, the choice of mount and non-combat pets is also very important and may decide on a character's RP background or the story in your head, connecting to them on a personal level.

It's the variety which makes players want to accumulate as many different pets, costumes or motifs as possible, and even if anyone can purchase or find them, the dyes give it an entirely different appearance all-together again, for the true ESO fashion endgame.

Outfits and the Outfit System - ESO Fashion



Outfit Basics


Everyone has one Outfit by default and can get more from the Crown Store. You can change into or out of Outfits at any time.

  • To change an Outfit's styles or dyes, visit and Outfit Station. They are located in all major cities.
  • Each Outfit accepts dyes whether a style has been applied to it or not. If there is no style in a body slot, the dye will be applied to your equipped armor.
  • Each time you customize an Outfit to improve your ESO fashion, there is a cost associated, no matter how small the change. When customizing, you can swap your weapons to better coordinate your look.
  • Weapon styles are grouped according to the Skill Line associated with them. Any weapon from a Skill Line can take on the associated style, whether it is equipped or not.
  • Each Outfit Style will display a hint revealing how it can be unlocked.

Outfit and collectible layers for ESO Fashion


Appearance collectibles interface with Outfits in a layered fashion. These layers form groups that may hide one or more parts from lower layers - such as a costume that hides your entire face, or a hat that hides your costume's hat so your face can be seen again. If you have head markings and facial accessories active, the costume hides them, but the hat brings them back.

From bottom to top, the layer order for your appearance is:
  • Personalities
  • Body Markings and Head Markings
  • Skins, Hair Styles, Facial Accessories, Facial Hair, and Jewelry
  • Equipped Armor and Outfits
  • Costumes
  • Hats
  • Polymorphs

Costumes to improve your ESO Fashion


Costumes, skins, polymorphs and hats added to your Collections are unlocked for all characters on your account. This means any costumes purchased via the Crown Store or unlocked in-game can be accessed by all your ESO characters. Costumes will override your character's attire visuals. Skins will override your character's skin while keeping your physical features intact. Hats will override helmets or costume-related headgear. The "Hide Helmet" Gameplay Setting will hide hats. Polymorphs will override all your character's attire visuals, skin, hats and physical features.

Armor Dyeing


While your ESO Plus membership is active you will have the ability to dye costumes and hats at Outfit Stations placed throughout the world to add some variety to your ESO fashion. Outfits are generally dye-able, even without ESO Plus. You only need it for costumes and hats! Non-ESO Plus Members can only dye their costumes and hats by purchasing Dye Stamps sold in the Crown Store.

To apply dyes to your armor, visit an Outfit Station. Outfit Stations are located in all major hub cities. New dyes can be unlocked by completing in-game Achievements. Right-click on any locked dye to learn which Achievement will unlock it.

Dye Tools

  • The Paint Brush allows you to apply a dye to an individual dye slot on a single armor piece
  • The Paint Bucket allows you to apply a dye to the same slot across all equipped armor pieces
  • The Eraser Tool allows you to remove an applied dye from a dye slot
  • The Eye Dropper allows you to copy existing colors you've already applied to other dye slots
  • The Set Fill Tool allows you to apply colors to saved sets of your dye slots

Note: Dyeing a piece of armor binds it to your account.

ESO fashion is one of the great aspects of the game, everyone looks different because there are so many different options to customize your character.
