I recently created a character on the NA server on ps4 for casual play and enjoy the journey to lvl 50 wihout cp etc.. But all the dlc is locked and I cant acces it. Do I really have to buy it again? That would be strange.
Yes, you have to buy it again, although if you have ESO+, you can still play all the DLCs for free with the subscription even on the new server. Other things don't transfer to another server (such as costumes, mounts, etc ... those don't transfer). A purchased expansion like Morrowind that isn't unlocked with ESO+ will not transfer.
Really? The DLC doesn't go across servers? That's gross. Something should be done about that (nothing will be done)
Yeah a real moneygrabber if you ask me
And even worse to boot if you have ESO plus still can't use Morrowind if you own it. I'm willing to accept it's an oversight that they just didn't test trying to use DLCs across servers but if that's the case then it needs to be revisited. I was considering starting an EU character to play with some people I know on there but knowing I won't have Morrowind even though I sub and own Morrowind.
Edit: Morrowind might be the only one that carries over will have to test this myself.
I bought morrowind from the site itself here, it crosses over to both NA and EU, not sure what you guys are talking about...
Now DLCs bought in the crown store, yeah it sucks, they're server bound, not account bound.
I think MW is the rare exception because it is an expansion and is purchased out of the crown store, as you mentioned.
I have ESO plus so it's not an issue for me, but a huge deterrent for me switching servers is the fact you have to start everything from scratch No CP, no levels, no characters. It's kind of bollocks considering most games have an option to change servers at will with no dumb penalties... sucks even more for me because I'm an NA player, and the only serious ESO players I know personally are on the EU servers - so I'm all alone

Items bought from crown store do not transfer. Items bought physically, from the account page, and/or added with a code do.
For instance if you bought the imperial version of the game and added the code through your account page you would have the items and access to play as an Imperial on both. If you bought the upgrade from the crown store it would only be on the server you used the crowns on. The gold version of the game will give the 4 DLCs to both servers. The crown store item that gives the 4 DLCs will only be on the server purchased from.

IIRC, the only things that carry over cross-server are Morrowind, the Imperial Edition (if you bought it before the Crown Store was implemented, maybe if you buy it through Steam), the Explorer Pack, the Palomino Horse (again, if you bought it before the introduction of the Crown Store), and the Veteran rewards, (if you got them (the Senche Tiger, Mask of Cheerful Slaughter, Dwarven Sphere pet, and Ice Wraith pet.))

It's a weird system. Nothing that's purchased in the crown store carries over. That means dlcs, costumes, game upgrades such as "any race any alliance" etc. But things purchased OUTSIDE of the crown store do carry over. That involves sub itself, Morrowind and game upgrades purchased prior to crown store, for example I have the "any race any alliance" pack from launch and I can access it on both servers.
