Cinder and I have opened up our shared blog topic challenge for everyone to join in on. The more the merrier! Every second Saturday we post a new topic that’s open for a fortnight for everyone to write about. Cinder and I will link all posts for this topic on our shared blog website here. This fortnight’s topic was suggested byMr and Mrs WoW and it’s all about what we’re carrying around with us.
Bag space would probably be my biggest bugbear in the game, I am constantly complaining about running out of space on pretty much all my toons (seriously 16 slots for the base backpack is just so dumb). It’s really not uncommon for me to have to sell off items just to make space to collect the emissaries quest reward I do each day.
For once Zee’s bags/bank were pretty uncluttered but this is mostly because I sent anything BoE and not necessary to my guild bank alt to store before I transfered Zee to Frostmourne and I haven’t started re-cluttering it back up.
I discovered Arkinventory as a bag addon a few months ago and it has been the biggest lifesaver ever. You can assign specific areas of the bag UI to different categories and it will automatically assign items to that space based on their category so I know exactly where to look if I’m looking for a specific item. It’s also account wide so all my toons are set up the same way without me even having to think about it
The top row is for quest items, so I’m carrying a netherwing egg and netherwing crystals for the netherwing dailies which are really not being done daily, maybe I should call them fortnightlies.. and some random gem chips for food. A portal stone for some Alliance specific scenario I haven’t done yet, my Darkmoon Fair Journal and a tome for a NH raid quest.
Next row down is for consumables so I look here for my food (see those applies – the tree guy in Dalaran throws one at me each time he sees me. I usually vendor them but maybe I should let them stack up), Relics, potions, drums, defiled runes and vantus runes.
Third row down I can find my flasks sitting next to herbs, A random lockbox I can’t open but haven’t got around to vendoring, tomes of the clear mind and my weekly keystone)
4th Row/section is for all soulbound gear. I really should sort this out, especially as I can see I have a duplicate of a ring in there but I have so many sets made up to tweak my stats that I end up carrying a lot of extra pieces, especially rings and trinket to be able to change out depending on what stat combo I want. Every so often I have a cull and choose a minimum ilvl and put everything under that ilvl into my bank or throw to a vendor.
The final section is for all the bits and pieces I haven’t actually set categories up for: dauntless tokens I’m not turning into gear until I can turn my loot spec back to boomy in case they proc legendaries, sentinax beacons I’m not using (while all the toons that need to kill sentinax mobs have none), pet stuff, lots of champion equipment I collect but don’t really do much with now days.
ArkInventory sets up my bank in same categories as my bag which helps but does tend to stretch out the space my bank takes up when I open it.
You know I should really do something with those sentinax beacons. I’m sure there’s an achivement linked to them and I seem to have a pretty good stockpile going on. and it’s probably time to clear out the old minion armor tokens I can spy in there.
I’m so grateful that there’s now a reagent tab. That has really helped with bag space, especially as I seem to have a big of a collection of items that I apparently don’t use – who actually needs 1200 eggs anyway?
So what’s in your bags?
