  • The shared slots can be moved either above all regular bag slots, or below them.
  • The slot is not a bag slot, and does not allow additional bags to be equipped.
  • Vendors and the Trading Post will ignore items in these slots, as will "Deposit all Materials".
  • Items that soulbind or are already soulbound cannot be placed here.
  • Currently, an account can have a maximum of 17 shared slots:
    • 16 shared slots can be purchased from the Gem Store.
    • Every account that owns Heart of Thorns has one free shared inventory slot, which is initially occupied by a single-use Level-80 Boost. Once the boost is consumed, the slot becomes a regular shared slot with the usual features and restrictions.
  • The packs of 3/5 shared slots are delivered as 3 or 5 single-slot unlocks that can be consumed individually.


  • Shared Inventory Slots were introduced on January 12, 2016 in the Gem Store, with a limit of 5 slots per account.
    • On April 8, 2016, the slots were 20% off.
    • On August 25, 2016, they went on sale for 15% off.
    • The Spring 2016 Quarterly Update on April 19, 2016 added the free slot to accounts with Heart of Thorns unlocked, and raised the limit of purchasable slots to 10.
    • The limit was further increased to 13 slots on July 12, 2016 [1], and to 16 purchasable slots (17 total) on January 10, 2017.[2]
