Dear Devs, please change the sequence of using mats during crafting, so that materials are first taken from the normal inventory and the bank, and only after that from the craft bag. That would free up space in the inventory and in the bank.

    That devalues the incentive of the crafting bag if they did it that way, for many its the sole reason they subscribe at all.

    ^This.^

    Why players still want the benefits of the crafting bag after they unsubscribe is baffling ...

    Yeah, ZoS isn't changing that... you'd get people to sub during a free event, overload the craft bag, and then have a "free" cache of stuff they could use only when they need.

    Not gonna happen.

    Even in guild bank, same types of mats dont get added together, so you will run out of space fast.

    Is it possible to "lock" mats like you do other items?

    Dear Devs, thank you for not automatically making all the mats and items in the *free during an event* craft bag go *poof* as soon as the event ends. Also, thank you for not making the items in the "double bank space during a free eso+ event" go *poof* as soon as the event is over.

    If you aren't subbed, you aren't paying for the craft bag/extra bank slots. You don't have that access any more. The items in the craft bag you no longer have access to will be used first. Items in the extra space in your bank will be used before you can add anything else to the normal amoung of space in your bank. If you tried to keep using a storage locker in the "real world" after you stopped paying for it you would quickly find your stuff was dumped or sold and the locker you were no longer paying for now belongs to someone else.

    I did that too for a while on an alt... realized I was spending about 8 hours a month just on inventory management stuff that I wouldn't have to do with ESO plus. Decided that my time was worth more than the $1.50 per hour it cost me to buy a year sub. It certainly works though!

    Sense you are unsubscribed, you no longer have the crafting bag. Be thankful you still have access to those mats. Sense you do not own the crafting bag, crafting uses those mats first, so it will clear them out. It's like you are living rent free.

    This! Be glad they don't dump them into your bank... and then your inventory, and then to the trash if all your space is used up. ZoS is already pretty generous on this one.

    Get yourself a personal Guild bank. 10 accounts and you can drop all alt mats in the guild bank. Make any account you regularly play an officer and you can freely withdraw anytime you need it. Sub is only required on an account with a crafter.

    All of my characters are crafters. Guild banks aren't accessible from the banker assistant. Even if it cut my time in half, $3 an hour is still worth it.
