Since we now have SO many items, the shared bank could use an upgrade. Having to scroll trough 25 pages of collects, event stuff and much more, looking for that one item you cant remember the name of, is a drag.
So I would really like some way to sort all that stuff, some way to put collects on this page and event stuff on that page and so on. A banking system like the one they have in LOTRO would be great, where you yourself set the number of items on each page up to your max number of banking slots.
Thank you for a wonderful game!

I so very much agree. Both the shared bank and the shared ingredient bank are outright awful to the point that is it hurting my desire to play the game.

At least add the AH interface to make searching viable.

I could NOT agree MOHR! :D

It is tiring sometimes to simply have to remember which item is where, on what character or in the bank - and then to not name it right in search and still not find it (especially craftable stuff). If only there were better ways to organize the mountains of stuff we are forced to collect, it would meana huge quality of life improvement - and maybe, just maybe, more time to actually play and put up lfms.

Some time back I suggested a 'Storage Themed' update with improvements to storage and House Kundarak themed quests. Almost all the loot in the coming update sounds like stuff from House Kundarak. The Update also supposedly includes Quality-of-Life improvements. I am wondering if we are about to get the Storage Update many of us asked for with some 'Wealth Themed' quests as a tie-in.

*fingers crossed*

Agreed that the interface is awful.

The really sad part is that they actually think it's good. Anyone remember when the devs happily and proudly announced that they were switching the character bank interface into the same style interface as the shared bank? They were met with such shock and horror by the community that they promptly said "never mind, we won't change it" and then never uttered a single word about it again.

Here's the AH interface mockup I threw together a couple years ago, still wishing we could have something like it:

Considering the state of most of the other inventory systems in the game, I'm just glad there's a search function at all.

Also, if you can't remember the name of it, you probably don't use it often enough to keep ahold of it. Let it go. Or look it up on the wiki. :P

I thought they listed the update stuff in the release notes?

I was under the impression more was coming but I am probably wrong. :(

Crafting collectables, quest collectables (IQ e.g.), similarly named items and collectables, items you put in bank but it took you a year to max that alt instead of the month you planned and you forgot their names but remember what they do. There are many reasons names cannot be remembered and many reasons why it may be a long time until you need them. :cool:
