  19 Comments   January 21, 2016

You may have noticed a lot of talk about infinite crafting bags which are coming soon to ESO. What are they? How do you get them? Do you really get infinite crafting material space? When are they arriving to ESO? Well here you go.

Infinite Crafting Bags ESO


Infinite Crafting Space

So, the notion of infinite crafting space for crafting materials surfaced again during an episode of ESO Live with Matt Frior and Brian Wheeler. The question was put to Matt Frior (Game Director) asking about crafting bags which had been mentioned in an earlier episode. His response is below.

Yep, crafting bags are absolutely in the plan. We are scheduling them to be in the Dark Brotherhood update which is in quarter 2 (2016). They will be an exclusive for ESO Plus subscribers but essentially it will give you an infinite inventory for crafting materials.

So as you can see they will be exclusive to ESO Plus members and will provide your account with infinite space for all types of crafting materials. We expect this to include raw materials, refined materials, style materials, Trait stones and upgrade materials.


When Are Crafting BagsĀ Released

The infinite crafting bags are due to be released with the Dark Brotherhood DLC which is scheduled for quarter 2 of 2016. This is April to June of this year.


You can watch the episode of ESO Live on Twitch over here. They speak about infinite crafting bags at approximately 15:50.

    I am all for that… that’s for sure. My bags and bank are full of crafting materials collected on numerous toons. šŸ™‚ Thanks ZOS!

    Can’t wait. Can finally do some alchemy since space was the only thing holding me back.

    This is a welcome addition. Over 98 percent of my inventory is dedicated to crafting materials. Because of this I have never kept high quality items built for a toon that could have been used for future alternate toons. Now I will be able to collect and keep nice armor and weapon sets which is one of my favorite activities in the other Elder Scrolls games. I used to collect one of each unique armor and weapon pieces in the other games. Now all we need is a house and manikins!

    what happens if once they are available I subscribe to ESO PLUS and move all my crafting stuff to those infinite bags, then I fill my inventory again with other stuffs, but then after a while I decide I dont wanna pay a monthly fee any longer? what will happen to those crafting mats?

    About freaking time. Considering that ESO is also trying to sell pop-up merchants for 5K crowns, this is especially welcome. I’ve had to dump herbs, etc to make inventory space on the go and most of my bank is crafting crapola.

    Is the infinite craft bag going to be associated with character inventories or the account bank inventory? I have multiple crafters and am very interested in an answer to this question!

    As these crafting bags are a limited perk for ESO+ subscribers I would like to know what will happen if your subscription expires or is cancelled.

    Does the bag just dissappear with everything it?

      You will be able to access the materials in the bag but will not be able to add additional items in it.

      Or how about those of us on PS4 that can’t subscribe because the Playstation Store is SNAFU and rejects all my payment mesthods, even PayPal? How do we get a subscription, let alone these bags? I have to buy Crowns for my PS4 account at EB Games in person because the Playstation Store is screwed up and glitches every time I try to input a payment meathod.

        You could always try paying on the eso website.

      Word. Pisses me off to be honest but judging from their greed, we just have to wait until they see how much they can make off subs simply for bag space then they’ll put it in cash shop for 5k+. Maybe. I’m not subbing for bag space. I paid for every dlc possible not to mention mounts, clothing, assistants and more. It should be offered for free in my opinion. To keep loyal gamers. Not to push people for even more money.

    well if is just for eso plus members will it be available in the c store it should be included if you buy the darkbrotherhood DLC

    I have to say I’m not too pleased. I would think the bags should be sold in the crown store so even the people without a sub, and who don’t want to sub, can enjoy them. Maybe it will happen later down the line?

    I think this is a TERRIBLE idea!!
    It is going to totally destroy the in-game market.
    Part of crafting is the sacrifice to inventory space, sacrifice to skill points in other lines to place them in the crafting lines, and constant hassle of transferring mats between alts, it’s what justifies the gold cost associated with selling your crafted items.
    This will allow non-crafters to hoard materials, flood the market with them and ruin the whole crafters economy.
    The only way this should be implemented is as a reward for an achievement given to dedicated crafters, perhaps for crafting x amount of items (a HIGH number) or researching x amount of skills, or both.


    I’m not saying that more space is not needed. Pffft! inventory management in ESO is APPAULING at best.
    But fixing a core game problem by getting people to pay for it, that is a typical move of the New World Order and their Problem-Reaction-Solution tactic of enforcement and change.

    The only problem I’ve had with this is that, in my guild I run, we all put our crafting supplies in the guild bank (as we all have chosen different crafts to master) but I am not able to put my crafting items into the guild bank anymore so now I have to direct message all materials to a player so that they can put it in the bank for me.

    Does the crafting bag stop when your eso+ plus membership ends?
