A Bag is an item that is used to increase the number of items a character can have in their inventory. They come in a variety of sizes (from four to twenty slots) and special features (e.g some will hide items from vendor sell screens). New characters start the game with a Starter Backpack and room for four more bags. Up to three more bag slots can be purchased through the Gem Store, for a total of eight slots (including the Starter Backpack). This article uses bag to refer to any of these equipable storage items, including cloth bags (made by a Tailor), leather packs (Leatherworker), and metal boxes (Armorsmith).
Function and features
All bags fulfill the same basic purpose: they increase the number of items a character can hold in their inventory. There are eight known sizes of bag available, ranging from 4 slots up to 20 slots. Adding different ingredients during the crafting process will result in a different utility in the finished bag.
There are five variations of bag:
- Basic — No special properties
- Craftsman's Bags — Looted crafting material is placed here first. Tailor only. Their contents do not move when inventory is sorted.
- Oiled Packs — Looted junk is placed here first. Leatherworker only. Their contents do not move when inventory is sorted.
- Equipment Boxes — Looted weapons and armor are placed here first. Armorsmith only. Their contents do not move when inventory is sorted.
- Invisible Bags/Safe Boxes — Items in these bags can be sold neither to merchants nor at the Black Lion Trading Company. Their contents do not move when inventory is sorted. Using 'Deposit Collectibles' will not affect items inside invisible bags; items individually can still be deposited using the right-click menu.
