I’m not sure yet, whether to buy the Crafting Guild access now. I’m also saving my TP for a few questpacks. Decisions to make….

A little warning for those who were saving their TP for Inventory bags: The prices have been doubled! As of October 29, 2012 all bags will be 995TP. Currently bag 4 and 5 are on sale for the old price (495 TP). So, if you need these and you have the TP, buy them before you have to pay the double price! Here’s Sapience’s official statement (October 18th, 2012) about that:

All bags had their prices set to be the same. Instead of the sliding scale players disliked so much where more storage cost more money. Now a bag, regardless of whether it’s 4, 5, or 6 costs 995. Because we did not want to have players who may have taken a break from the game or who were waiting to purchase all the bags at once, to take a significant hit in costs, we put the bags that had previously been 495, but are now 995, on sale for 495. End result ZERO increase in prices for those who came back and bought the bags. 0.

Now, in a couple of weeks those sales will expires. Absolutely. On October 29th, the sale will end and then yes ALL bags will have a flat cost. So a bag will be 995 regardless of whether its bag 4 or 5 or 6.

Have fun and let me know your experiences with the above items!
