    Default still no bank slots in store

    Read the latest announcement about new items in the DDO store with eager anticipation...

    but... still no ability to buy the extra 10 bank slots in the store? Or did I just miss it in the announcement?

    I can hear Earl Scheib in my head:

    "I can give you more bank space for the low price of only 995 Turbine points".

    Me I think of it this way they are giving me twice as many points this month and next, and that will pay for the extra shared bank space with a few points left over .

    Unlike most other things for sale: it is not a consumable, not bound to a single character, doesn't get lost when you delete a character, or have to be traded around to be used by all your characters.


    Conspiracy nut theory:
    I am more concerned about the "No Candy Canes" from Festivult, yet there they are for sale in the store. What a weak-ass explanation that they "forgot".
    It seems that they were more concerned with nerfing our existing equipment (rez cakes [level 5 spell] are searing light [level 3 spell]?) to force us to buy from the store. Hmm, you can get rez cakes from the store but not searing light... Seriously, Searing Light? What the **** were you thinking??? Yeah, we know that they would change slightly, but it seems Santa was replaced by Scrooge or Jack.

    So much for the store not impacting what is available in the game. I can't wait for them to decide that existing +2 tomes will now become a Blessed Book so you have to buy them from the store to get them. "The moons have aligned and changed the magic of the books" - or some such nonsense.

    Oh, that's easy. I didn't farm them. I just cheated. -Meghan

    Dark,

    This is EXACTLY what happened. Exactly. No one forgot. No one failed to consider it. They knew that having an item from a coin that competed with wands, or other items from the DDO store is a bad idea.

    The candy canes were more than a very popular drop. They were PLENTIFUL as a drop. Both of the previous years I have had two pages in my bank space filled with them. I gave an old one to a noob two months ago that had 20 charges left on it. I still have some in the bank.

    Now...what is my incentive to BUY any more of them? None, if I can get them for free from the Jester. What is my incentive to buy any res cakes from the store, if I have res cakes already? Nearly none (but...Store bought cakes can be used when you are dead, on yourself...but not underwater...)

    This is not a dark theory...it is eliminating all the possible reasons by observation, and what you have left is they did it as part of their marketing. Thats not evil, it just is. The cutesy "we forgot" line is the evil part, but even then, someone may have just said that to our Sales Rep, and thats the answer we got.

    That is cheating.. making the Candy cane an item to buy at the store is very mean. It used to be free for everyone collecting coins for the holiday.

    OK, I'm glad to see the shared bank space becoming available 11/30. My only question is, can it be purchased more than once?

    Say I want 20 extra shared bank slots, can I purchase 2 of the 10-slot spaces, or is there a limit to how many extra shared bank slots are available to one account?

    Wow, bad.

    As one who was entirely for, and made threads suggesting the idea of the shared bank. I find it disgusting how you implemented it. The tiny shared bank that you have right now is what I would expect F2P to get. Subscribers should get at least 10 shared slots, +5 extra per character slot available in their account. So, if they have 5 characters, but can have up to 10, give them 60 slots. And then add in the extra slots to buy, as many times as you may want. And then lower the cost by, oh, 2/3 to 3/4...

    The DDO store is a good idea, but your making some of the prices just ridiculous.

    Question

    Hi, i was wondering if someone could tell me if i am looking in the wrong spot or if the 20 bank slot that is on sale, isn't in the store yet? Thank you for your time.

    Thank you for putting shared bank expansion in the store, but I think the price is a little high - I would have expected half that price or even lower, especially since you could buy 2 character slots for the same price and get 6 normal bank tabs for that.

    Conspiracy nut theory:
    ...joke removed...
    /Conspiracy
    I feel special. -50 rep from one person for a joke ("conspiracy theory" is a clue )

    Of course it could have been a negative from someone wearing a tin foil hat.

    To quote someone:
    Love your work.


    Back on subject (my first lines where I think the price is suitable): I noticed that the initial 20 slots is 1495 and adding 10 more is 995. You would think adding more would be cheaper (1/2 the cost of 20 slots), but I guess they are working the pricing as diminishing returns (like when you get greater enhancements it costs even more to get the same amount added).

    Can someone confirm that this is Account based? I play on several servers and am hoping this is the case. About to log-in and find out though.

    I just bought the extra 10 slots, so now I have 30. Was quick and easy to do, and as I said above as they gave me double this month and last it kind of paid for itself - besides being free as I am pay to play...

    Now I can share more 'stuff' between my alts
