Well lets be real here, one of the things we all want more of is.. Inventory Space. For any number of reasons, we just want more of it. from bank Spaces to just being able to carry more stuff, we need more inventory.
and every time I see this a topic like this, i think back to another post I read a while back in the Suggestion go to Die Topic. http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=395519 and I will admit I can't get how amazing this idea is out of my head.
So, I figured I'd bring it up to here, and expand upon it a bit.. with Pictures! because everyone loves pictures! So here is my idea.
So thinking about it, it would be better if it was not an item or a bag or anything like that. but something it's own thing, like the Monster manual, you hit Ctl-T and you bring up the Trophy Room.
This is where you put all your "named" items in the game. And some of us are not willing to part with our named stuff even if it is just a Bloodknuckle Smasher or some other trash item. because we like the idea of named loot.
So what this would do is, we get the "Harbor" stuff for free, like.. well.. Bloodknuckle Smasher, Keenza Bauble, sewer smock, and other items we simply can't live without.
But then, what they do is sell additional Trophy Room Packs, and sell in a bundle deal, like "Necropolis" would include Necro I, II, II and Orchard, so we can go out and collect every item from "Necro" and more then that, if we bought the Trophy Wall Pack which did not perfectly line up with an adventure pack we would be inspired to get all the packs to fill the Trophy Wall.
- Storm Reaver Pack: Which would include all the items from Tempest Spine, Giant Hold and Reavers Refuge.
- The Hobgoblin Alliance: Shan to Kor, Tangleroot, Redwillows
- The Founders: Delera's Crypt and Thernal.
- Etc. Etc.
I propose with this addition, not only would Turbine stand to make some serious money, they would not need to worry about all the outbursts on the Forums about pay to Win they receive every time they put a new item in the Store.
I just wanted to bring this idea to the front again. because I think it has to be the best Idea I have heard in regards to dealing with Inventory issues and players who like to collect stuff (Like myself)
Edit Added ---
--- Figured Since I put added examples in later posts, I would apply the images here as well to give a better idea of how this could work and what I am talking about.
For example* - With the idea of Packs:
For other situations where their could be several variants, a page could be added in like this* -
And maybe as opposed to "pack sets", they could just offer item sets, for players who have a specific build or like, and only really need some named items to be sorted but also don't need to worry about other kinds of items, like for example* -
I would like to take a moment to explain that this would be Functional, like a bank vault, with prettier images and better organization. Imagine if this was Turbines answer to giving us a House, Lodge, Den, Parlor, Trophy Room, as it were we could put stuff in and take stuff out.
This was never designed to be a one way trip into the Stash, nor was this meant to a 'glorified' bag.
The idea here is that you can put your stuff into your "Trophy Room" at any time due to magic, however to take something out you need to go to the Inn or the Bank (IE: access your Trophy Room). Because lets be real, if Turbine gave us housing, what other use would be put it to other then as a place to hold more stuff.*
