How Do You Make It With No Subscription

My ESO+ ran out last night. Don’t worry, I’m probably gonna re-sub, but I found this out by my inventory filling up practically instantly.

Inventory management is bad with a sub, but without; Jeesh, it’s all you do practically.

I’m somewhat relieved to not have to deal with DLC content though. I’m under cp 300, but still...

I’ve heard there’s add-ons to help with this, any chance I wouldn’t have to spend 3 days figuring them out? Lol

    you can but inventory will always stop you-slight better if you got banker and merchant so dont visit bank every 30 min
    but these 2 will cover at least 6 months of eso+
    imo a good idea is to get the 3 or 6 month sub and buy the banker first if you plan playing casual
    if like me are a hoarder,picking up everything,stopping every 5 sec for this nirnroot plan,there is no cure,must sub :p
    there is a add on called inventory grid view but i dont use it

    Every couple of months I play inventory management online, Where I decon a pile of stuff that I am just never going to use and move things between my house storage (I have all the boxes) and my bank.

    I am constantly selling my materials since I don't have a craft bag, then the money I make from that can be used for upgrading bank/bag space. materials are worth a lot so you make a lot of gold that way.

    And I just don't bother picking up style and trait materials.

    Learn what's worth keeping, and in fact what's worth picking up in the first place. First rule is that weapons and armour which aren't inside containers are almost universally useless. 9/10 are white non-set gear with no glyphs which has no sell price and doesn't drop any materials when salvaged. The 1/10 exceptions are green non-set gear with no glyphs which might salvage into 1 of the base material if you're lucky. Unless you're still in the tutorial it's not even worth picking up. Same with food and drinks displayed on tables and things, they're never going to be any good, and they're not worth much so it's not worth picking them up because they just clog up your inventory.

    Similarly the vast majority of containers just hold provisioning materials and those build up very, very quickly. When I'm going through a heap of containers I take 1/2 a second each time to check how many I already have and decide if it's even worth picking up, most of the time it isn't.

    Any weapons, armour and enchantments which the current character can't use go in the bank to be passed to my crafter. The vast majority get salvaged for materials, but if it's especially valuable I might sell it on my guild trader. On the rare occasion that I get something special, like a purple CP160 weapon for a set I actually use I might check to see if any of my other characters can use it, but if not I get rid of it. I don't keep stuff I'm not currently using out of some vague hope that one day it might become less useless because I don't worry about following flavour-of-the-month popular builds or grinding endlessly for rare sets just in case I ever want it. If an update does make what I've got useless for me I'll find something new and until then I don't worry about it.

    As for the stuff I am storing, that's fairly simple. Each character carries their own equipment, most of which is equipped so it takes up no inventory space. Similarly consumables are shared between them and if I find they're building up in the bank I sell the excess. Crafting materials are shared between my crafters inventory, the bank and trait items and non-racial style materials go in a housing chest because I don't need them very often. (Incidentally free ESO+ trials and times I've bought the odd month for some reason mean I've got heaps of both trait items and style materials in the craft bag, so even when I am crafting something which needs them it's rare that I actually have to get it out the chest.)

    Oh I also have a housing chest for storing furniture, after I discovered that means I can access it from all my houses (even if the chest isn't placed in that house) which makes it more convenient than storing it in a house I'm not using.

    I can imagine it's confusing if you've had ESO+ and never had to consider having a system to keep stuff organised. But I've been playing for years and only rarely had ESO+ so to me it's second nature. I don't really know what else I'd want to keep if I could, without crafting materials my bank has about 30 items in it.

    I"d recommend looking into add-ons like Advanced Filters and Dustman. Make as many alts as you can handle and max their bag space (180,600g), mount upgrades (15000g), your bank account (768,500g), obtain all the storage chests for housing (1200 vouchers/1,200,000 Telvar/12000 clowns). Start a guild for the 500 slot bank account. That should keep ya busy for at least 6 months. Oh yeah and don't try crafting or hoarding anything. ;)

    Like others have said - learn/decide what stuff isn't worth picking up (I ignore non-rare cooking mats, for instance, since I have 1k+ in my craft bag), have housing storage boxes, and maybe a mule or two.

    I stick crafting mats & trait mats in my bank, when stacks fill up I pull them out onto my mule. I stick style mats, motifs/recipes I haven't used, and surveys into storage boxes. And I don't keep piles of extra gear sets around. Every few months, an ESO+ 'free weekend' happens, and all that stuff goes into the craft bag. Plus I use those days to do surveys & process all the raw mats.

    Between seven storage boxes (from vouchers), an almost-maxed bank, and 8 characters with 150-170 bag space, there's a lot of room.

    you learn to store your mats in a bank and to be a lot more careful with looting and hoarding gear, furniture, etc. its very possible. its hard, if you are used to not thinking about it, but its possible.

    I honestly found it to be comparable to moving to a much smaller apartment and having to figure out what to do with your stuff. what to keep, what to discard, and how to manage on smaller storage space from then on.

    I actually wrote a guide on how to do crafting writs without ESO+, which you can find in the crafting section of this forum.

    As for the rest, especially if you're a gear hoarder... Decon it all. xD
    Shortly after the formation of the Ebonheart Pact, a Nord woman was given a tour of the Tribunal Temple. When later asked about the experience, she seemed upset. Suffice to say, the Dunmer were not pleased to hear this, and thus they inquired further.
    "Well," the Nord frowned, "the priests were very angry and unwelcoming. They kept shouting things at me like "you can't drink that mead in here!" and "somebody stop her, she's running naked!" and "we can't catch her; she's covered in grease!""

    I played without ESO+ for a couple of years, and at first it helped to have a few mule characters who could hold the excess stuff, but eventually it got to be unbearable trying to shuffle things between the bank, all of the storage chests, and my various characters.

    When I finally subbed to ESO+ at the beginning of the year, it instantly made a dramatic difference.

    But now, just 3 months into my sub, I'm running into problems again, partly because I've been stowing treasure maps, surveys, and master writs instead of doing them right away, but mostly because I've started hanging onto dropped set gear instead of just deconning it as I used to. I've started working on the maps, surveys, and master writs, which is helping; but I really need to sit down and figure out what gear to keep and what gear to research or decon.

    You just need to destroy 90% of the gear you loot and have no material in your bag and you should be fine if you buy 1 or 2 storage chest. I made a storage character too

    I stopped my ESO+ recently, and have done so in the past, and while it's very true that inventory management takes up a lot of your time, it's definitely feasible. Before I dropped my subscription, I made sure to buy a lot of style stones to have them in the craft bag for writs, so I could destroy the new ones. I also have a lot of crafting materials in the craft bag, so I can send the new ones I get from writs, decon, etc., to my alt account (having an alt account, even with just the base game, helps immensely with the ESO+ less life), or to alt characters who have space in their inventories. I also got rid of items in the bank to get down to 240 slots so that I could move things in and out. I only kept sets I would have a use for, and got rid of random set items with off traits. I will keep my surveys in a storage box and work on them slowly on alts with relatively empty inventories that can hold the materials. Having storage chests helps a great deal. I also recently got the Bristleneck Boar pet with gold via crown gifting, and even though it affords only 5 extra slots, it's still nice to have because it's for all characters, so I definitely recommend it. It takes some character swapping, and it's tedious for sure, but I've dont it before, and with any luck a free ESO+ trial will pop up sometime, so I can put all that stuff back in the craft bag. The only thing that's an impediment for me is Housing; I love decorating houses and with half the slot space it really is limiting, plus you can't store as many things in houses (I store all extra furnishings in empty houses/apartments). As for addons, I've heard Inventory Insight is really handy, though I haven't used it yet personally. Good luck with your no-sub adventures, you're not alone! ^^

    I have been without it since wrathstone. I have a guild just to store my materials, another guild to hold my wares/not bound gear sets before I sell. I have my house for gear sets, my bank for things I need on the go. The only mat I keep in my bank is gear trait gems as they can clog up my guild bank in no time. My characters hold any excess gear sets they may use.

    When they do ESO plus trials I take all my mats and deposit it into my craft bag. I buy 10k of ancestor silk, ingots, ounce, wood etc to last until next trial for writs/misc things.

    I'm very meticulous about cleaning my bank, guild banks and characters so I'm pretty comfortable. I still have room to spare :smile:

    Add-ons, and 14 alts with maxed out inventory and all storage containers. I have a gear crafter, consumable crafter, a character who holds sales backlog and speculation items, and each alt holds a short list of sets. Monster and arena sets are kept in the storage coffers. I automate crafting material storage with Bank Manager Revived, and set storage with Inventory Insight. This is mostly viable because of inventory insight. I don't know what I'd do if I were forced to play console, probably just play another game.

    No, not all of it if you include every kind of mat from level 1-CP150. I think maybe if you only keep CP150 you may squeak by.

    Forgot to answer OP. I have a couple of extra characters whose only job is to hold mats. I have another one whose job is to hold furniture items I don't really know what to do with. A couple of times a year there's usually a free plus weekend, where the mules' inventories get dumped into the craft bag.

    __________________________Backstories:_________________________

    Ras Kalik the Vestige, a renown Redguard warrior; He has been blessed to save Tamriel from Molag Bal’s destructive Planemeld while reuniting the Five Companions. His further accomplishments after defeating Molag Bal, has been to stop the destruction of Morrowind, the Clockwork City, return order to the isle of Summerset and create a new king in Wrothgar and a queen in Elsywer. These events have made him a living legend and continue to lead him into new adventures throughout Tamriel, as well as into the hearts of many ladies including the Elf Queen, Aryenn. Over many years of adventurous travels, Ras Kalik had become a loner, until he re-visited his homeland of Alik'r.

    Alik'r and it's cities were overrun by the undead Ra-Netu and therefore he made an allegiance with Alik'r's own Ash'abah tribe. These Ash'abah with his help, cleansed the city of Sentinel in Alik'r desert and it's surrounding areas of the undead brought to life by the Withered Hand. After rescuing Sentinel from the undead zombies, King Fahara’jad’s personal bodyguard the Goliath of Hammerfell, who was given this name by Imperials in the region; was asked to assist the tribe after learning of the defeat of the Withered Hand to the Ash'abah. Kalik promised Goliath he would task him with fighting living enemies on the battlefield if he so desired. Goliath being a Yokudan warrior wields a massive sword in respect to the Ansei, a gift given by the Imperial, Cinan Tharn. Not many soldiers are able to wield double two handed weapons, but Goliath loves to get up and personal in a fight, so he also carries a giant maul, both weapons laced with magical flames.

    Jux Blackheart is a master thief that masquerades as a Bard at the Sisters of the Sands inn, with his younger sidekick Lucky Hunch for pilfering and gambling during this time. Jux was known to infiltrate any towns bank vault he came across and even delved into Ayelid ruins without detection. Kalik can vividly recall the night he met the famed thief. Jux found himself rummaging thru a slightly inebriated Kalik’s pocket for too long, on a full-mooned night and because of his greed and the glimmer of his golden armor in the moonlight. He lost his left pinky fingertip as a lesson! But in return, he gained a new friend, as it was his first time since a child being caught red-handed...

    Upon arrival back in the Alik'r after many moons of adventuring, Ras Kalik ventures to Bergama. Visiting The Winking Jackal, he runs into Jux Blackheart, who introduces him to the coin game Crowns vs Forebearers (Heads vs Tails) and Golden Dwemer (RBG).... Jux constantly takes gold from the unfortunate thru theft or gambling, his biggest gambling victim is actually his partner in crime known as Lucky Hunch the Gambler. Lucky doesn't mind losing any gold coins to Jux... as Jux saved him from Altmer slavers in Summerset, by stealing a key and sending him on a boat to the mainland years prior. Lucky spent years in slavery with Khajiits in Summerset and picked up the art of subterfuge, using illusion magic disguises and stealing there.

    Kaotik Von’Daemon an outcast, and a half-caste between a Breton mother and a Redguard father. Kaotik become a pariah due to his conjuration of Daedra pets. He was taught healing magic during his childhood years by his Breton mother. His father due to Redguard customs exiled him from the desert, sending him by wagon caravan to be a soldier in the war in Cyrodiil. He happened to meet Kalik while traveling from Alik'r, during this long caravan ride the caravan he was in was ambushed in Bangkorai by a group of bandits. Kalik by chance was also traveling thru this area on his Auridon Warhorse (which was bestowed to him by his friend, Darien Gautier). During this ambush, Kalik was able to rescue five hostages from the bandits. Kaotik was the first rescued, and Ras Kalik also recruited him to be in the Ash'abah tribe. These core Ash'abah tribesmen may never be seen together in travel as they partake in their own adventures but they always know what each other is doing; as they frequent a hideout in northern Bankorai. Their hideout an old Orc castle ruin, is kept watch by Nuzhimeh and she passes messages written between them, and frequently they also enjoy her company and her bed.

    The other men rescued were a Dunmer banker, an Imperial mercenary and two other soldiers, an Imperial and a Breton Knight, stating proudly he was an Akavir descendent. One of the Imperials, Cinan, claimed to be related to Abnur Tharn the Battlemage of the Imperial Elder Council (One of Ras Kalik's mentors in the Five Companions). Cinan Tharn was really Abnur's drunkard treasure hunting illegitimate son. He was caught smuggling artifacts out of the Ayleid ruins in Cyrodiil and the elder of the two Imperials was Tyrus Septim a retired Imperial navy battle-mage (now a Lycan mercenary living in the city of Rimmen) and guard to the Tharn family. As much as Abnur Tharn hated his half-sister Euraxia, he dislikes his bas†ard son Cinan more. Tyrus now a ruffian and privateer had been paid by Abnur Tharn to watch over Cinan as much as possible. Cinan Tharn a drunkard, loves to drink at least a quarter barrel of Nord mead before he raids various delves and dungeons for relics to sell on the black market. Cinan also plans to one day, run an illegal gambling ring... which he thinks will net him more gold for his wares.

    The Dunmer captive shackled to the Imperials looked familiar to Kalik from his time in Morrowind.... and he recognized him as Tythis Andromo a House Telvanni slave-owner and banker from Vvardenfell. During a rough interrogation to Tythis, Ras Kalik learnt why the bandits accosted him. The racist Dunmer was providing slaves as soldiers for the Three Banner War. The bandits were trying to negotiate a lucrative ransom for Andromo and the Imperials.... Kalik did not need any of this gold and he could never set Tythis free as he did with the two Imperial soldiers. His past involvement with slavery and war crimes, made Kalik's blood boil. He chose not to execute Tythis, as he figured the worse punishment for this former rich and opulent slave owner, is to now be an imprisoned servant for Ras Kalik and the tribe.

    Herzog Zwei the Genesis a reknown Imperial/Akavirri battle-mage. His roots going back to Akavir through his mother’s bloodline. (His mother is descended from the Akaviri, through Versidue-Shae, and his Imperial father met her in Hakoshae, while traveling) Herzog earned the nickname "the Genesis" from his father as a child, as he was his mother's first born child, and last, as she tragically died in child-birth.

    Herzog was seeking to purchase an artifact from Cinan Tharn, before their capture and was meeting Tyrus while in Rimmen, who introduced him to Cinan. This artifact being the Ayelid artifact; the sword Sinweaver. After their rescue and the exchange of gold to Cinan for the sword he decided to slip away before Ras Kalik could question who he was, and why the Akavir descendant really wanted that sword. Herzog was headed to Nagastani — An Ayleid ruin in eastern Cyrodiil. He had read in scrolls that the Sword would give him magical powers to meet his mothers spirit, if he performed an Ayleid ritual at an old shrine hidden there. Equipped with the artifact sword, he was off to start his own adventure but Ras Kalik, did indeed notice the sword however and instead sent a letter to Jux Blackheart (whom also was interested in Ayleid treasures), to attempt to find Herzog and acquire the sword. (*Azani Blackheart in Elder Scroll's Oblivion is Jux's descendant some 747 years later)

    And so the Redguard, Imperial and Akaviri men parted ways ... While Ras Kalik went off to Elsweyr to encounter the latest threat to Tamriel, with Abnur Tharn and Sai Sahan - - DRAGONS!! Little did Ras Kalik know a few people were awaiting him in Senchal besides Sai. A necromancer survived his attack on the Withered Hand, while in Alik'r. The necromancer known as Auriek Siet'ka is also following him to the land of the Khajiits and Cacique the Sage of Ius a Shaman mystic who has become attuned spiritually with Tu'whacca (a Redguard God) and Ius (the Animal God), after being burned severely by the escaped dragons in Elsywer, is awaiting his arrival also. Aurik is a soldier of the Daggerfall Covenant that was introduced to necromancy while in the military, even though this magicka art is not spoken of openly by most of the Military leaders. He came to Alik'r and worked with the Withered Hand before Ras Kalik intervened on their plans. After the defeat of the Withered Hand, he aligned with the Worm Cult, and is constantly adapting and perfecting his necromantic arts.

    After his journey to Rimmen, Kalik heads south to Senchal, in the southern regions of Elyswer. This new adventure will also put him on a path to meet a strange Redguard man. The stranger which was infected with an untreated Peyrite disease and also was the exiled from the Order of the New Moon cult, due to his sickness. He originally joined the cult to worship Laatvulon, the green dragon, mistakenly thinking it was the Daedric prince Peyrite. This confused and suffering cultist is known as Tsar al-Bomba and he is on a path to spread the disease. He was originally infected in Orccrest while recruiting members there. Can Ras Kalik and the shaman Cacique cure this poor soul, only time will tell. Little does Tsar al-Bomba know, that his infection is tied to Vampirism, and eventually the desire for blood will take over his mind. Senchal also offers Kalik his latest love interest... Aeliah. Whom he fondly led thru battles with the Dragonguard.

    After the trek thru the heat, tropical and desert climate of Northern and Southern Elyswer, Ras Kalik heads north to the cold mountain range of Skyrim. His companion friend Lyris beckons for him with a letter sent by crow...

    Movárth Piquine - a former vampire hunter (now infected), within the Fighter's Guild (and a secretive necromancer) was in Skyrim working with the Morthaal Guard. On a patrol mission he was caught in Frewien's ice curse outside of Morthaal with the frozen undead. Movárth's vampiric infection kept him from becoming an undead minion to the curse. He was able to use necromantic ice-magic to encase himself safely until he was freed with Freiwen, when the Vestige Ras Kalik broke the curse.

    Uri Ice-Heart - brother of Urfon Ice-Heart. The twin sons of Atli and Oljourn Ice-Heart. The Ice-Heart family are originally from Markarth but now reside on the Jerall Mountain range near Cyrodiil, with their younger sister Araki. The twins had joined the Winterborn Reachmen while living in Markarth. Urfon pushed west to Orsinium with the Winterborn Clan, leaving his family behind. Uri stayed behind with his parents and sister to live in the family cabin for safety, avoiding the Vampire plague infiltrating the Reach. After news reaches him and he hears of Urfon's death... Uri leaves and heads home and is seeking vengeance. Meanwhile, his sister has also moved on to Windhelm to join the Fighter's guild. He will visit his sister, once before going to seek vengeance and she will craft him armor mixed with ice, called Stalhrim armor. Uri fearing death, after his brother's passing, falls victim to the convincing talk of Movárth at a Nordic tavern, and will also becomes a vampire.

    Dedicate each of your characters to hold materials of one kind. I have a character for style mats, one for alchemy ingredients, one for recipes, one for motifs, one for gear, one for enchanting runes and one for other crafting materials.
    Stop picking up provisioning materials and take the skillpoints out of the hireling passives.
    Get a trusted friend to send mails back and forth with allowing you to store 6 items for 30 days per mail.
    Max capacity on the horses of all of your characters, get the housing storage coffers.

    Get a master crafter friend with ESO+ and send them your mats to craft whatever it is you want. That way you can get around the game forcing you to use up your craft bag mats first and instead use the mats cluttering up your inventory.

    If you do all that, it's really easy to get from ESO+ free trial to ESO+ free trial.

    Get a trusted friend to send mails back and forth with allowing you to store 6 items for 30 days per mail.
    Max capacity on the horses of all of your characters, get the housing storage coffers.

    having one char for each type? that's so awful. How many transactions and loading screens you have to pass to move each type of material to each character? just have one single character that you do nothing with it, where you store everything just as a bank.

    hirelings passives are very good, must be had on each character. You just unload every mail into the bank char.
    provisioning may be not worth to keep, they're usually cheap and already made food is cheap too.

    I haven't subscribed since the requirement was dropped, and when it was mandatory i only got the 3 month reward(Ice wreath pet) My list of characters grew over time to assist in my inventory mini games but I'll try to explain how I manage..

    Trait stones, armor/weapon stones, improvement materials and style materials are all banked. Each character holds the raw/refined materials of their original craft profession:

    Rah'Jiin - Metalworking, Generic Argonian - Clothier, Zinkotsu - Woodworking, Ja'Kiro - Enchanting, Templar - Provisioning, Velik - Alchemy, Einvarg - Jewelry.

    Most of the spare set armor is also banked, but alternate sets that each might make use of are placed on those specific characters. I make use of "Inn Closets" to store other items. I have used three 60 slot chests to sort Monster sets for each weight type, then a 60 slot for crafting writs I cant use yet for whatever reasons and one 30 slot for 'special' event writs. 30 slot for spare Jewelry (Like Agility/Willpower), another 30 slot for event items leaving the last 30 slot used specifically for disguises.

    Even with that going, I have one dedicated mule for spare crafting motifs I happen to find and the Crown consumable items that continue piling up. There is still a low level alt that's been holding onto all the overflowing New Life writs from the past 2 years, A 'new'character that I haven't touched yet is also holding to all the furniture items and a few loose extras.

    FINALLY with all that said, I have to constantly juggle my inventories on the daily when collecting hireling mail, and it really limits my ability to collect random resources while I'm out adventuring in the world but It all those material slots get refreshed when the ESO+ Free Trial week comes around every few months. That is how I've continued to survive while playing this game.. Not counting the several month long breaks I sometimes take.

    The best way I know how to manage my inventory without ESO plus is to keep you bank primarily for your crafty mats. Have a few spot for gear and other items though so you can transfer them between characters.

    Next, move your gear into the storage chests as with all of them you have about 360 slots for gear.

    Third, spread the rest of your gear out to your other characters make a mule or two if you have to.

    Lastly, download Inventory Insight so you can find your gear later on.

    Hope this helps with your space problem :)

    When doing daily writs, ensure that your main crafter is last, to deconstruct items all in one go. And hold surveys etc.

    Have one character that carries provisioning ingredients (and only 200 of each, sell the rest). That character can also keep any style mats that aren't standard too. That will save about 80 spots in your bank.

    Sell raw mats that aren't the lowest or highest level. Keep only 200 of the each level of refined mats, apart from the highest level.

    Get rid of any cp mats that aren't 160. Also get rid of all of the level 45 to 49 mats.

    Sell the armour and weapon trait mats apart from nirphoned. You probably have over 100 of these in the crafting bag from trials of plus anyway.

    Store gear in the chests. Throw any furniture into a spare house.

    When making gear for crafting writs, use the style motif with the least amount of mats first. Try to buy the same motif when you need to restock e.g. 200 bone.

    For monster helms and shoulders. Unless it is really difficult to get, only keep one of each weight, or two if you PvP and pve.
