any TES player will tell you that KAtana have been a part of every major TES release since time imaginable. I was a bit disappointed to hear that katana would not be featured in TESO. this was a bit concerning because TESO time line puts it right after the time where the Akaviri had the absolute most influence in Tamriel, katana should be rather common.

well then i saw this and it renewed my hope that we may yet see a katana model in game - pardon the clipping issues:

I actually had a theory regarding this.
There are 15 Motif books.
However after the race motifs there are only 4 known motifs.
So that's only 14.. But what is the 15th?
Also room for future content, I full well believe we will receive an Akaviri Motif in the near future.

Do not worry.
The Akaviri are such a major part in the history of TES that they must be featured at some time.
That also includes there trademark katana's.

One can only hope, I've managed to get my hands on four Akaviri styled pieces so far, two heavy one light which I'll never wear and a bow.

All of which were obtained from mail-reward boxes in Cyrodiil.

You can also buy them from the vendors there for 625,000 alliance points, which are VR10 and of Complex / Purple quality. Creepy

i want to say that the Fighter's Guild (and subsequently Mage's Guild) has its own set of armor and the fighter's guild is akaviri/samurai looking. basically that cool armor that the NPC is wearing in most FG locations? yeah thats their armor.

i know this because i nthe Hero's Guides there is a book that goes through all the armor types and both mages and fighter's guild have their own armor and weapon style motiffs

Not sure if It's what you're saying, but I'll say it to clarify. What I linked is what the fighters guild members wear.

They have their own armor and weapon motiffs though? That, that is quite sensationally interesting, wouldn't suprise me If It's a hint at future content. . . But then, It wouldn't suprise me if It isn't. Cthulhu

Not completely sure whether I know or don't know anymore. Creepy

oh ok yeah listen, dont quote me on that, all i know is there is a book that comes with the Hero's guides that goes through every weapon/armor motiffs "greatest heroes".

hrm, how do i explain this. . . ok so there is a book, and its trying to be all lore oriented so the way it presents all the motiffs is by saying that each race had an epic hero and it shows all of his/her armaments. so like to show off the Breton style motiff, there is a Sir something or another and it shows all the concept art for all the weapons and armor that you can get in game for that racial motiff.

well after you get through all the standard racials, it shows the primal, barbarian, daedric, ancient elf, and then fighter's and mage's guild so i have STRONG reason to believe that the guilds have their own motiffs.
