No. All Dunmer skin tones are grey. Lighter grey or darker grey doesn't bear any distinction.

What does bear distinction is the dumb looking purple Dunmer in the beta trailer. That's not right.

One of them had pretty cool skull facepaint, but their skin tone in the trailer was definitely effin' purple.

ZoS, don't do it....

I hope that it was just the lighting effect they had and not purple.


I am the shadow within a shadow. I will accept any job; however I will execute the target, or maybe even the person who hired me; it all depends on who has the most gold to give. Even then you can not trust me to let you walk away with your life.

I was more worried by their faces than their skin color, actually. Their facial features were too soft, there was none of the hard, pointy features that are common amongst the dunmer, like their cheekbones or their sunken eyesockets.


If an argonian turned into a werecrocodile would there be any difference in appearance? Like, at all?

I hope this is not what elfes in ESO ingame will look like, and that they just "slipped" the style for the video to make it more attractive. Maybe it was with motion and face capturing and they didn´t want to redo all the facial traits of the artists.

The dark elves were not like Dunmer at all in this video...but I think we should not take into account what the video showed. I can't stop saying that the Altmer mage was like a man :D

Yeah, that was number two for me. Dunmer look rough and indignant. These looked like Night Elves from WoW.

No distinguishable red eyes either -- which is just as critical as the skin tone.

This picture proves, without doubt, that there are Dunmer in the Game that have a lore breaking skin colour. you can also see this exact same dunmer in the introduction to TESO video fighting in Cyrodiil, i post this picture because people assumed he would be a bosmer (again, skin colour wouldnt be apropriate for a bosmer there either) but this picture indubitiveley proves that it has to be a dunmer.

Infuriating! The most basic thing you should do when making a game tied to specific lore is get the races right.

A strong arm to slay the weak.

An iron heart that knows no fear.

And a foul mouth to boast about it!

Such are the virtues of the pact!

I mean come on! If you gonna make a bloody game, make it right! What i the point, your changing lore, just so you can get players that have no history with TES, and that just kill the fun in MMOs and abandon the true fans?
