Beta was great, very polished game at this point. So many issues but without breaking the beta terms One major issue i found while playing was... Why can no game get bag space right? why must you always have to spend so much time managing inventory? Why do stacks only go 20 high of most items? Why do you get so many different worthless pieces of junk from each and every rift you do? why are artifacts stacked in main inventory>? Why does water only stack 20 high as well when you know people will need more then 20 at a time? When trion spawned the foothold battles after 1 wave i would have my rift bag Full as well as my inventory full. by the time we stoped the invaders and beat them back to the rift I would have 5-8 stacks of 20 of the container things you got from the rifts, the containers then had worthless items in them as well worth next to nothing, and with no real use value to them at all.

While I wasn't in the First Beta and "hope" to get in one prior to release. Bag space has been a question I was curious about along with bank space (if they have them) and also the mailing system. I completely feel the same way Thun, most games do not provide enough inventory space especially to the pack rats like myself. I often try to have "keepsakes" or multiple sets of armor that I may find beneficial if I am PVPing versus PVEing. Then add crafting items and you can get full up real fast.
I personally think items should stack to 100 due to bag space constraints in any game. It's just a good number. I hadn't heard about the mailing system but asked on RIFT IRC that yes there will be one but not sure how many items you can attach or how long mail will be saved if opened/unopened.
Will there be an Auction House? If you accidentally sell an item how long do you have to buy it back or will there be a Sell Junk Button (I can hope and pray) for. I have so many questions more than there are answers haha especially due to NDA and no don't want anyone to tell me anything I shouldn't know but I can't help but be curious.
