    Salty about craft bags, I've spend over €200 or more on the game and will continue to buy crowns. But i dont like the feeling of having to play one single game and nothing else because it would be wasted money, if they would just sell the bags for 5000 crowns or so id still buy it.

    How about I just give you $100-200 and you can give me what I would like for my werewolf

    1: ultimate timer reworked
    2: skill changes
    3: better berserker morph

    Sounds fair ! :)

    allows you to hold a nearly-unlimited number of basic crafting supplies

    I still wonder what "nearly-unlimited" means.

    Also want to know which crafting mats are "not basic".

    I'm honestly surprised they put these at such a reasonable price, thanks ZOS!

    Nearly-unlimited means no more than 4 billion pieces in total in the bag. ;)

    I'm pretty sure on ESO Live they said it was around 4 billion of each type of item, which would make sense if they were using unsigned 32-bit numbers to count how much of each type of item you have.

    Slight correction: the article says the Vosh Rakh Ceremonial Mask is available in the base game. Unless something's changed, might be worth noting that it's actually part of Orsinium.

    So slots average out to 15-11 USD each if you're buying the crowns. I'm good with that! Was expecting more.

    From what I understand, often "base games" often just means "what came before this up-coming/current DLC". At least I could swear I've seen patch notes where they make a special section for the current DLC, then previous ones are banded together with the base game. It is a little confusing, but kind of makes sense, in the long run?

    They did, so it could have been a misunderstanding at some point, or things changed. Since the woman at ESO Live was the one who worked on the craft bag, if I remember correctly, I'm inclined to believe it either still is 4,2 billion per item, or that it was later changed to 4-ish billion in general. It's been two weeks, so a lot could have happened, I'm sure. At any rate, I doubt it will be filled in a while. :P

    Woo! Glad to hear the character slots are 1500! That was just about hitting my max for purchase, but I find it very reasonable. I was a tad bit concerned after the, uh, banker and merchant 'situation,' but you guys pulled through!

    No, that is not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. A "mere" 6000 Crowns for a full suite of characters. I totally see people buying into that.

    Does "basic crafting supplies" mean only materials harvested from nodes? No processed materials? What about foods?

    From the way it is on PTS now it is ALL crafting materials, raw or refined, including Provisioning and Alchemy ingredients and even Fishing bait. :)

    I believe Consumables are still in your regular inventory, which makes sense really.

    _______________________________________

    I'm happy to see the price of Character Slots is fairly reasonable. My only complaint is that the limit is a mere 4 extra slots. I had close to 20 slots in multiple other MMOs and any true altaholic is going to have 30+ anyways.... *sadpanda*

    That hair is new!

    I can't wait until you guys start talking about the barbershop. I need some information on if a certain hair color will be available to a certain race.

    Either way... Character slots! I might buy one or two. I still don't have a Nord or a Redguard. I want to know, though, where the new characters go on the list. On the PTS, when NA was copied, I bought the slots and created a new character, but she went straight to the top of the list instead of going to the bottom. I want my first and main character to remain on top, so I would like to know if it is different on live.
    Just so that everyone knows, my Altmer still can't have black hair. About a dozen of Altmer NPCs in the game have black hair. Just saying.

    Meet my characters:
    Command: Do the thing.

    Zadarri, Khajiit Fist of Thalmor: The thing was done, as commanded.
    Durza gra-Maghul, Orc blacksmith: The thing was done perfectly, in the most efficient way.
    Tegwen, Bosmer troublemaker: You can't prove I didn't do the thing.
    Sings-Many-Songs, Argonian fisher: Sure, I'll do the thing... Eventually. Maybe.
    Aerindel, Altmer stormcaller: After extensive research, I've come to the conclusion that doing the thing would be a waste of resources.
    Liliel, Dunmer pyromancer: Aerindel said I shouldn't do the thing. Something about "resources".
    Gyda Snowcaller, Nord cryomancer: I will find a way to do it that won't waste resources and make Aerindel proud of me.
    Beatrice Leoriane, Breton vampire: I persuaded someone else into doing the thing. You are welcome, dear.
    Sahima, Redguard performer: Doing the thing sounds awfully unpleasant and really not my problem.
    Ellaria Valerius, Imperial priestess: I'll pray to the Eight for the thing to be done, if it is Their will.

    @Legoless :
    If you can't wait to wear a new hat, there will be two hats available in the base game for you to wear when Dark Brotherhood is released: Cadwell's Pot Helm, and the Vosh Rakh Ceremonial Mask. These two items were previously available as a costume, but we've converted them to hats so you can now wear them with a costume!

    Fully aware. Key word is "base game", which the Mask wasn't as a costume and (I assume) won't be as a hat.

    I think I need at least 1-2 more characters to try out some 'fun' builds. Glad we are getting the new slots but most of all the crafting bag is going to be a huge time saver. My bank can be used for gear again and my mule can be levelled as a character. No more gear/material shuffle at the bank!

    15 characters, 14 max level, at least 1 Stam and 1 Mag of every class, 1 of every race and 1000+ CP

    Between the crafting bags, and the lock against accidentally deconstructing things I want to keep, I will be getting two characters back. I can't wait, for this alone!
