Lord of the Rings Online is adding crafting material bags to the collector’s editions of Minas Morgul

Maybe getting some cosmetics or character level boosts aren’t enticing enough to get you to drop up to $130 on a collector’s edition of Lord of the Rings Online’s Minas Morgul expansion. Well how about unique bags that will let you stuff gobs of crafting materials into them and share those ingredients across every character in your account? Because those are what’s being offered when you pick up an Ultimate Fan or Collector’s edition of the expansion.

Both of these special editions of the Minas Morgul expansion will now pack Crafting Carry-alls. These Carry-alls only take up one slot of space and let players cram thousands of different crafting materials into them. Additionally, these Carry-alls are account-bound, making sharing materials among characters a snap.

The Carry-alls come in two sizes: Small, which can carry up to 10 different materials in stacks of up to 2,000; and Large, which can carry up to 50 materials in stacks of up to 5,000. The Collector’s edition will include the Small Carry-all, while the Ultimate Fan edition packs in both the Large and the Small. Maybe now you’ll want to slap LOTRO with your wallet. Or wonder why this isn’t just a single item in the game’s store.

This is nothing but desperation to try and shore up sales of the stupidly expensive “ultimate” edition of the expac. Other MMO do this soooooo much better and don’t require a £100 expac to buy it.

This is so bad. Fleecing the people who still care about the game. F in chat.

I’ll wait to see if/when this or something similar comes for the shop currency. The mid-tier version at 10 types of resource is too stingy for me to buy that even though it is tempting. I have alts with all the gathering professions so their banks and bags are stuffed with various tiers of crafting mats. I’d fill the 10 slots instantly regardless of the stack size. The 50 slot version would be useful but I’m not paying $130 for any in-game benefit even if it’s account-level.

It’s a shame about the pricing of this as it is a really nice benefit that would make crafting a lot easier – the lack of altoholic-style (the WoW add-on) means to see what characters have which mats means a lot of time spent on character switching and shared bank-admin. This item would help minimise this but ouch that price is too high for me.

I remember using this in the past:

It worked pretty well but its been a while since I played lotro so I have no idea if it works with current patches but it might be worth a look

Oh, I’ll take a look as this type of addon is so useful – I’ve never seen this mentioned before but then I probably didn’t look into it properly.

I’ve been using it and it works fine in the current version.

I use this one, “Hugebag”, to look at other alts bags and inventory:

I liked having one large bag, and it is available with the Lotro Compendium
( https://www.lotrointerface.com/downloads/info526-LOTROCompendium.html ) for easy installation.

Also, BBB’s “Alt Inventory” is in the Compendium as well.

Enjoy the Day, Everyone!

I dislike the “Part of subscription” cries. Don’t push subs to mandatory for these things. Now, offering it as a sub benefit and for separate purchase would be okay to me.

I feel like subs get too much stuff thrown in too often, and become pseudo-mandatory. And that just means that it feels like the company is lying, just like if they go into the worst restrictive nonsense in a F2P model. Especially because those benefits generally cannot be obtained ala carte in any way, shape, or form.

Because IT IS.

$130…and it doesn’t include all previous expansions? What?

Shame on them for making this feature part of the Collector/Ultimate editions of Minag Morgul instead of making it part of the subscription…

That tipped me from ‘probably’ to ‘definitely’ on the Ultimate. Handy for massive packrats like me.

Nope, still not enough to even remotely tempt me into dropping $130.
