Generally speaking, The Elder Scrolls Online has some pretty good and adorable pets, but all they really do is just look cute. The latest addition, however, has a bit of utility baked in, which is making some players a bit nervous. Say hello to the Bristleneck War Boar, a proper chonky pig friend who apparently can increase your inventory by five slots. That inventory increase, by the way, isn’t just for the character that has the pet; it’s account-wide.by one PTS player back in September, which led to several cries of the added inventory crossing the pay-to-win line. That feedback appears to have been largely ignored, as the pet went live a couple of days ago with the inventory space improvement included.
This new pet has kicked off a variety of reactions, with some community members who believe that this new pet is a test bed for further P2W Crown Store items, while other fans want more utilitarian pets or don’t appear to be fussed by five inventory slots. You be the judge.
