Taken from an interview pod cast With Jeffstrain a month before Factions Release
Jeff Strain clearly states that enchancments like new features to make the game better such as trade improvments, and auctionhouses and such to make the gamplay better WOULD BE ADDED to all chapter owners and would not have to buy a specific chapter to have somthing like an A NEW STORAGE SYSTEM. CAN U REALLY CONSIDER THIS CONTENT or a gamplay enchancment well.. this is taken from the guild wars site
Players who own Factions will soon see a new feature on their accounts that is sure to please: The Xunlai Agent storage system will be enhanced to include an entirely new vault for the storage of materials of all kinds.
Players who own Factions will soon be given a new form of storage through the Xunlai Agent. This new tab on the storage account will allow you to store up to 250 of each type of material or crafting supply in the game, both common and rare. So as you acquire items, you can put them into the Xunlai vault and keep your regular storage space clear for armor, weapons, and special holiday items. The first tab on the Xunlai interface is where your items are stored; it has 20 slots. The second tab is the new vault where you put all your materials and crafting supplies, such as bones, shells, and other such things.
Notice Bold Words..
In a sense Anet can sort of put its foot in its mouth, but i did not make this tread to flame anet but to clearly show how much has changed from what thier so called buissiness model was and how now they try to push people into buying factions for somthing THAT IS AN UPDATE and was not released witht he original game. This clearly goes against what he says in the audio tape.
I do this to help out those who cant yet or afford factions although i have it, so that if anet is to see this you will clearly see why the new storage coming should before prophicies only accounts as well.
Another thing said by Galie is there reasoning for this is because of the fact o.. well factions accounts have 6 slots.. and uhhm need to hold ambers and jade. O yes cause you know with the character slot purchase coming i could buy 5 slots and not have factions and would not get the new feature. O and i belive that prophicies only accounts can get ambers and jadite from the vendor as well as all the other mats.
Also id like to add that weve been begging for storage improvments WAY Before Factions was even heard of
