I beat a dungeon for an item and when I was collecting it I realised (a bit late) that my inventory is full. But I collected it and looking in my gear and I see it there, with my total # of items increased (max as well). So I melted it and when I came back to my inventory screen the additional slot was retained and it even flashed like when you buy a new slot.
My question is this: is this a glitch to get more item slots for free or (more likely) did the game auto-buy an extra slot instead of telling me I have no room like with every other item everywhere else? I haven’t noticed if I had any gems deducted as I didn’t pay attention to the exact amount I have (which you don’t do for the most part) but knowing the game I may have gotten quite screwed here.
