    I hadn't really gotten into crafting in TESO during the beta period, or the first few weeks after release. Now I am grinding my alchemy, enchanting and clothing crafts.

    These activities are a burden on inventory space, so I make frequent trips to town to dump my materials in the bank. It took me far too long to realize that I don't have to withdraw my materials to use them. It's awfully convenient to use runestones and reagents without having to keep them on me.

    I'm certain this will be "fixed" in a future update, sadly.

    I don't know, Lucid. I don't remember where I read about it, but I got the impression it was intended. Something I discovered by accident, the bank inventory seems to work on unique items. So, if you have 600 pieces of iron ore, it only seems to take one inventory slot.

    I hope it's by intent, because it's too convenient as is for me to cope well if they take it away :)

    And you're right about the item count. Both in the bank and your personal inventory, multiples should count as a single item. Seventy spidersilks take a single inventory space, as do thirty lockpicks. I've noticed that glyphs tend to stack instead of bundle, even when they are identical. Sometimes leather does as well.

    And while mentioning lockpicks, damn it's easy to pick locks in ESO. I just reached the 100 Treasure Chest achievement, and I've probably only broken a total of 5 lockpicks. It's a far cry from the lockpicking struggles in Oblivion or Skyrim.
