The Elder Scrolls Online’s getting extra character slots and expanded crafting inventories

    
43

ZeniMax has a shortish dev piece out today running down the chief cash shop and sub changes coming when The Elder Scrolls Online’s Dark Brotherhood DLC launches next week.

Of note, the game will make purchaseable — for the cost of 1500 crowns — extra character slots “so you can have up to four additional characters, for a total of 12 playable characters.” The studio is also talking up the expanded crafting inventory for subscribers:

“This feature, called Craft Bags in-game, allows you to hold a nearly-unlimited number of basic crafting supplies. Additionally, these items don’t count against your inventory limit, and is shared across all characters on your account. In the event your ESO Plus membership expires, you’ll still be able to access any resources stored in your Craft Bag; you just won’t be able to add new materials to it.”

Plus? Hats. “Toward the end of June, you’ll be able to purchase two hats from the in-game Crown Store to outfit your character – the Silvenari Felt Bycoket and the Z’en Vengeance Kiss-Me-Not Cap,” ZeniMax vows.

Vagrant Zero Neo_Wolf Sorenthaz That would be rather sudden though to have an expansion come out of nowhere in the next 6 months.  
Maybe they’re holding off until E3 to unveil new info?  Either that or they’ll release info shortly after DB launches next week.  Who knows. 
I’m really hopeful though given how they’ve done the previous DLCs so far.   An expansion would be awesome though as well, especially if it expanded on the main story as it sounds like the first four DLCs have all been mostly side things?

mysecretid Sorenthaz Neo_Wolf Or better yet, have it be phased instancing like what they do with most of the game world.  So then maybe you could have your home out in the actual zones of the world.

crackfox When they did the last crafting overhaul (simplifying provisioning ingredients and increasing stack sizes to 200), Holds-Green-Fish ended his career of holding green fish (because they also fixed the bug where those had no sale value) and went on to retrain as a Shadowscale. He is now almost Vet 1 just in time for the removal of vet ranks. :-)

Darthbawl I hear you! I play both and the inventory system in Black Desert is just PAINFUL!
In ESO at least I figured out a way to sort out things (and the BankManager addon is a huge help with that). The crafting bags are going to make things a lot easier, though.

JamesCrow I kind of agree, but I think subscribers also need a noticeable perk, which right now, they don’t really have. 

Someone suggested making the Banker and Merchant “pets” available to subscribers as part of their subscription while making the crafting bags available for everyone. I think that is a good suggestion. But for now, the benefits of subscription if you have been playing since launch and have all your traits researched are a bit meh, and the crafting bags are super-exciting in that respect.

Meanwhile, if you subscribe for 1 month, all your crafting materials will be put into the crafting bag and will stay there until you take them out. If your subscription ends, you can still take them out but can’t put any more back in. So that would be an alternate workaround.

Will the patch come to consoles at the same time or later? Needless to say, that when this DLC hits I ll be playing again, just because of crafting bags :)

Dixa Zarkov No it isn’t? Elder Scrolls games generally have unlimited storage. Hell, in Skyrim, people were filling entire houses with cheese wheels just because they could.
