| Bank and Bag Space Suggestions|
During the beta, one thing I had a fair amount of difficulty with was bag and bank space---in particular because I like to craft and collect mini-pets.
Bank space: I very much appreciate the fact that there are tabs available to specifically collect crafting ingredients and mini-pets, and I think this does a lot to alleviate the fact that there's limited bank space and it's shared between your characters. However, none of the crafted ingredients (for example, the ball of dough or jar of tomato sauce in cooking) can be placed in those tabs. If you're doing a lot of crafting discovery, those intermediate items can take up quite a bit of space. I have difficulty working more than one craft at once across all of my characters except in very limited capacity, and even just doing cooking alone can get tricky.
It would be nice if either intermediate crafting ingredients also fit in the collection tabs, or there were significantly more bank space.
Bag space: I'm used to the fact that you have to juggle bag space in MMOs (although I do hope that someday it'll be seen as something to be given out a little less sparingly), so I'm not asking for some huge increase. What I'm interested in are specific changes in certain contexts.
Back to crafting: in order to work with the discovery mechanic, you need to have an extensive array of ingredients in your bags, particularly for cooking. My suggestion would be this: when characters are in a major city (such as Divinity's Reach) that also has a bank, make the ingredients that are in a character's bank available in the crafting discovery interface. The only thing you're circumventing is a whole lot of running back and forth, which isn't a fun addition to the game.
Regarding mini-pets: I absolutely love the fact that they have their own collection panel in the bank, so that you don't need to use up bank space for vanity items. That said, I found during the beta that as much as I love pets, bag space was precious enough that I was unwilling to waste it on carrying a pet around. It would be nice if we could access at least one pet at a time without having to carry it in our bags.
Apologies if there was some way around one or more of these issues that I didn't happen to come across; if so, I hope someone will enlighten me!
