I have not found anything compelling at the vendor for a long time, and I can easily afford anything offered.
Part of it is the lack of furniture storage. I have said before that bound furniture that is not placed in a home should not take up inventory space. The lack of this has to impact crown store sales to some degree since storage in this game has always been among the worst I have seen (and I am ESO+) with furniture to this significant pinch point.
Especially among ESO+ members unlimited furniture storage seems like a no brainer if Zos does not want to do unlimited bound furniture storage for all.
It would be like the crafting bag so it should not be to complicated to add either.
I buys things I think primarily on if it matches my personal aesthetic tastes. Tho many times I buy items based off what I think I might use them for - can they be turned, twisted, flipped, or combined with other things to make fun looking additions to my homes.
I think I bought WAY too much of all the dwarven stuff just because I think it's pretty but also because the big globey things have potential as fun machinery and I just love how that brass glows in candlelight.
It's very rare that I will buy an item specifically to hold onto it to sell later. I'd make a terrible businesswoman. lol
“Does it look unique and interesting?”
“Would I use it?”
“Is it reasonably priced?”
If it checks two of three then I’ll buy it
I'm using Moonmirth the same way. I originally thought my Khajiit would live there, but it's too far from wayshrines etc. So my crafter ports in to rummage from time to time, and then goes direct to another home. Khajiit is now happy at Sleek Creek.I don't see the reasoning behind this either, but I wanted a forge in my house anyway so i bought kragenhome for 70k and use that as a 200 slot storage shed
