Hi, welcome to my TED talk.

I'm a long time player, since launch (off & on) & when I other play other MMOs, there is always something to purchase in the shop. content, an outfit, something for convenience sake, etc. Here in ESO though, my crowns just pile up & rot, because everything that anyone could possibly want is locked in a loot crate & you force us to gamble. Which I refuse to do.

Like the new expansion for gold road. why the heck can't I just buy that with crowns?

The game needs eso+ to play imo. So there is no need to buy anything that ESO+ will grant you. I already own all the 5k assistants I need (bank/rag/shop), I dont require character slots, still have plenty, classes are all unlocked, nothing in the collectors packs (that i dont already own) thats worth buying, my bank & inventory slots are already maxed out, don't need riding lessons, dont need to pay to unlock any skill lines, already done in game, same goes for skyshards. The "utility" bundles are all hot garbage. no need for exp scrolls, or respecs. The style parlour is devoid of any life, everything cool that COULD be here, is locked in a loot crate. Same goes for the wardrobe section ... & the mount section & the pet section.

all this leaves me with is:

- service tokens for changing my outfit / appearance / name
- houses & furniture (which I already have lots of homes, how many do I bleepin need? lol)

Like I have so many tokens atm with nothing to spend them on & I see no reason why we are either forced to gamble, or have nothing to spend the tokens on. So many other MMOs seem to handle this issue np,so what is ZOS' problem?

Can we get a in game shop overhaul that's less scummy & predatory & maybe get something that we actually want to use please?

Thanks for coming, this concludes my TED talk for the day.

    expansions are buyable with crowns, but only when they are converted to DLC (which is the year after their initial release usually)

    like when gold road comes out, you should be able to buy necrom with crowns

    as for the rest, it would be nice to see more cosmetics (costumes, polymorphs, customized actions, etc) released outside of crown crates

    most of the ones ive bought so far are the monster arms packs since those are always direct buys, but thats weapon cosmetics
    plays PC/NA

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic.

    Thank you for your understanding

    Couldn't agree more, the ESO store is antiquated in many ways. I've recently dabbled in other mmo and season type games, and feel so much more rewarded elsewhere, and I can earn those rewards by playing.

    You don't need eso+ to effectively manage inventory. There are lots of storage options, chests, mules, bank, etc. Once you learn to manage your inventory without eso+ you'll wonder why you ever had it in the first place. Use your crowns to buy a few mule toons and you'll be set.

    Completely agree. The first thing I do when playing any games is find a way to avoid spending most of my time on inventory management, because it just sucks all the fun out of it. I also don't want to spend a lot of time logging in and out repeatedly, just to shuffle items between containers.

    Good god please do not encourage ESO to do battlepasses. That is just as bad as Loot Crates if not objectively worse. I literally quit Runescape 3 to start playing ESO again BECAUSE RS3 decided to implement a battlepass system.

    I would love for them to experiment for a crown crate release by just offering the items for crowns as well. Make it similar to how you can purchase Monster shoulder pieces. You can spend a much higher price if you buy something individually, or you can spend less and get the random items via a crown crate (this method assumes no duplicates). I think this method would massively increase the revenue from the crown store.

    Another controversial opinion I have about the crown store is that I think ESO+ shouldn't give players crowns. It causes a weird need for ZoS to massively overinflate the price of their crown store items, and I'd much rather the prices be more reasonable than relying on a Once a Year allowance of crowns.

    Hey, if you want to pay $15/month just to manage your inventory, that's up to you. It's super easy to manage your inventory without ESO+, so I don't see any reason to pay anymore. There are storage crates, banks, storage pets, mules etc. that can do the job for free.

    I don't see any reason to give ZOS any more money until they put it towards the PvP aspects of the game instead of divesting in the PvP aspects of the game.

    Mules aren't even required. I played the game before the crafting bag, and without the crafting bag after it was introduced. The same principles apply. Keep what you need. Sell or destroy what you don't. For a lot of people, I figure that the bank plus normal bag space is more that what most people really need.

    For me, the crafting bag is simply purchasing the ability to ignore crafting materials completely. When I don't have it, like on XBox, I have to manage things more. That's it. I take the free ESO Plus and suck mats into the crafting bag, which keeps stacks at a manageable level. Until then, I sell or destroy anything I don't need, or can't store.

    The only place I feel pressure at the moment is with Furniture, when I don't have warehouse to drop it off in. When that happens, I just delete the furniture. I only need so many shrines to Dibella, anyway. :smile:

    ESO+ doesn't even come close to covering their expenses?
    Yeah, I guess that explains a lot. Like why ESO is a buy to play game, along with additional purchases and optional sub and gamble crates and little to no rewards from actual gameplay itself.
    Game is monetized like a free to play game. I guess it's all to keep the game afloat tho *shrug*.

    Only expenses that the subs are not covering are probably the yearly salaries of investors.

    No, you absolutely DO NOT need ESO+ to manage inventory, and I can guarantee you I have more hours into the game than just about anyone. Between the six chests, 4 mules and a personal guild bank I get by just as well without ESO+ as I did having the subscription. I paid the sub for 8 years and used to think I needed it. But now after U35 and cancelling the sub I wish I'd cancelled a lot sooner. ESO+ is absolutely not needed with a tiny bit of planning ahead.

    Actually, you don't. ESO Plus is a Nice-To-Have but the game is entirely playable, even seriously, without it.

    Back to op, yes the store is seriously lacking. We got:

    - same mounts of tiny variants
    - same motifs of tiny variants, the knights for example, seriously?!
    - hair styles and dye sets?! Can't even unlock individual dyes
    - potions, poisons and scrolls don't deserve a place
    - pets, houses and assistants are great, but that's it.


    Also many skins and houses are no longer available, why? Why limit the sale at all?


    PS: even those behind crates are very similar to each other and I doubt many would want to get more than one of them. Please hire more artists and designers!

    ^THIS! Anyone who has played the game for years and spends hours daily playing, having the crafting bag is a necessity. However, if you're a player who rarely plays, or doesn't farm for materials to sell, then I'm sure you can get away with not having ESO+. Or, if you'd rather spend your time logging in and out of characters to move stuff around- or constantly going to your house to move things in/out of your storage... personally, I'd rather spend my time actually PLAYING the game, and that's worth the $12/mo sub IMO.

    Less than 5 minutes for the account, and I play daily.

    I dropped ESO+ with U35. I take advantage of the free trial weeks to load up my craft bag. I don’t play or do writs on all 17 characters daily and managing inventory on the 3-4 I do play daily takes 2-3 min per toon after turning in writs, if that. I usually keep my bank space between 110-150 with gives me plenty of room to throw decon items in after doing a dungeon or trial.

    I have storage toons dedicated to different types of gear or mats but those aren’t needed every day, and it only takes a few minutes to log into them and pull items from the bank when needed.

    This^

    U35 was what convinced me to cancel my sub as well. Inventory management without ESO+ is not time consuming at all.

    The main 2 reasons I sub to ESO Plus are the craft bag (I do writs on 20 toons every day and I also spend a lot of time farming mats) and the double furnishing slots in houses. Some of the really big houses (like my beloved Colossal Aldmeri Grotto, feel free to visit it if you are on PC-NA) are a challenge to furnish even WITH 700 traditional furnishings; I do not want to imagine how frustrating it would be to be limited to only 350.

    The double bank space is also nice since I'm a furniture hoarder but I have warehouse houses I could use if I had to....

    Eventual goal: Own all the houses. Currently 4 short of that goal.
