Does lore of an item promote you to buy it?

Do stories on items help you enjoy it more?

    The lore of the soul + mind-shriven definitely did for me

    I always look forward to new Crown Store and Crown Crates items because they always provide an interesiting piece of lore.

    Also, I'm keen on creating lore-accurate characters.

    For example, a Nord who is venerating Dragons - an ancient but not so extinct cult; an Orc who is a passionate Malacath follower; an Orc, who wants to change his life and learns to be a Trinimac's follower; a Reachman who is... a Reachman, who's intentions are unclear and somewhat shifty... Stories about costumes, tattoos, mounts and mementos help me to do create such characters.

    Yet I can't buy everything I need. But well, I can't buy a lot IRL as well - so sometimes I just read the item story, and that's enough for me

    Yup definitely

    My lore friendly characters are to have mounts, pets and motif styles/costumes that match the lore

    No exceptions for me

    No, but what can be done with it through lore can intrigue me. Like my recent snow globe purchase

    Yes of course, I always enjoy the flavor text on them.
    Even for items that shouldn't have been done imo (like the "fox-colored" wolf and the "panda-tehemed" bear) their lore texts have them more acceptable in that world.

    For instance I can't wait to see if the stories of the evolved indriks are different from the ... oh wait...
    - OK, I just checked on a wikia site and they are already datamined haha
