Looks like the release of Fangs of Asterkarn is closer than further, and as usual with every expansion the same issue resurfaces and then is followed by a disappointment - the question of player inventory space, or more precisely- stash size.
Lately, I haven’t paid attention to any in-depth developer updates, but from briefly browsing through recent updates and FoA announcements nothing of this sort was hinted at.
When there was even just Act I it was slightly annoying. After a couple of bigger expansions, item management and mule juggling are extremely annoying to the point where announcing ‘hundreds of new items’ instead of getting me excited, is causing a prolonged sigh.
So- is there any hope for any serious expansion of player stash size? I’m talking about additional chests or multiple rows of tabs in the shared stash.
This subject is partially covered in FAQ, but these are posts and statements from years ago.
I understand initially it might have been (at least partially) an engine issue, but a few years have passed since the release of the game and it seems like enough time to sort out any ancient mess in the code that might have been preventing such a change.
Collecting unique items as bad or good as they might be power-wise (for the enjoyment of their art and design or the sake of collecting alone) is something a lot of people like to do in these types of games. It is possible to do now but since the early days of Titan Quest nothing substantially improved in this regard and people who do enjoy collecting stuff are subjugated to the same archaic, infuriating limitations, seemingly kept in place to maintain an extra layer of time wasting management of items spread across a platoon of mules (or immersion-shattering, slightly less annoying, busy work moved to 3rd party utility apps that modify save files).
Developers can have their preferences but in the end, this is not a niche passion project and it would be nice to finally receive this big QoL improvement after so many years, requested by a lot of people.
Storing 50x (or whatever is the hero limit) of items is possible now through extra characters.
Is there a plan to finally modernize this system and make the experience more user-friendly?
