Bag of Holding

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Bag of Holding was originally released during the June 2018 run of Duskruin Arena. This container is designed to allow storage of a large number of items within a single space, whether on a character or within a locker, mechanically similar to a container in a player run shop. In doing so, one is able to exceed normal limits on items held by a character or within their locker. The pieces to create a Bag of Holding are found only in the Bank Heist.

Assembly

A treasure box is the first required item to obtain on your quest for a Bag of Holding. All 12 stolen goods are placed into this box for the item to be created.

Found at: [The Ophidian Cabal, Leader - 27159]

>ask ringleader for box
An Ophidian Cabal ringleader asks, "In need of a storage container for those stolen goods?  I can loan one to you as long as you promise to return it to me filled with items from the bank's vault.  Just ask me again about the box within 30 seconds to receive one."

>ask ringleader for box
An Ophidian Cabal ringleader pulls a treasure box from beneath an oversized dark wooden desk and hands it to you.  "Here you go.  Fill it up for me, and I will reward you for your efforts."

Treasure Box Analyze

>analyze box
You analyze your treasure box and sense that the item cannot be altered in any way.

The creator has also provided the following information:
This treasure box is a container designed to hold stolen goods from Bloodriven Village.  It will hold one each of 12 stolen goods, as well as a special blood crystal.  Once you have found all 12 items, speak with the ringleader inside his hideout.

Please note that once you place an item inside this box, it cannot be removed.

You get no sense of whether or not the box may be further lightened.

Minor Bag of Holding

After placing all twelve stolen goods into your treasure box, you can SHOW the treasure box to the Ophidian Cabal ringleader, and it will be transformed into a treasure chest.

You just stored the twelfth piece!  You should go speak with the Ophidian Cabal ringleader, and SHOW him your treasure box.

>show box to ringleader
"Well, I'll be a banker's bosom!" exclaims an Ophidian Cabal ringleader.  "I can't believe you found them all!  Sure, I had high hopes for you, Alastir, but this goes above and beyond all my expectations!  I'll just take that full box and give you this, instead.  I'm sure you'll have no trouble filling it with your own treasures."

An Ophidian Cabal ringleader takes your filled box and shoves an empty treasure chest into your hand.  He smiles proudly and pats you on the shoulder.

Minor Bag of Holding Analyze

>analyze chest
You analyze your treasure chest and sense that the item is largely free from merchant alteration restrictions, but the creator has stated that "There do not seem to be any specific limitations."

The creator has also provided the following information:
This chest is a Bag of Holding (minor) reward from the Bank Heist at Duskruin Arena.  Items stored inside will count only as one item (the container).  The current properties of this chest are as follows:

Unique Item Capacity: 1 items -- carrying 0 total items, 0 unique items
Per-Item Capacity: Up to 10 of the same item
Max Encum of Container: 50 pounds (currently carrying 0 pounds)
Despite any messages below, this item cannot be lightened or deepened.

USAGE: DROP/PUT, POKE, PULL (to remove focused item), PUSH, RAISE, RUB, TOUCH, TURN (to set focus on an item to remove).

Important Note: GET will not work with this container.

You get no sense of whether or not the chest may be further lightened.

Major Bag of Holding

If you are fortunate enough to find a multifaceted blood crystal, you can go back to the ringleader to obtain a large treasure sack with a blood crystal clasp, this is a Major Bag of Holding. The multifaceted blood crystal is as rare as a golvern segment is for MoonShard pendants.

>ask ringleader about crystal
An Ophidian Cabal ringleader says, "You got your paws on a blood crystal? Well, then... you're the kind of worker I'm after. I'll keep my word and reward you handsomely for bringing me that crystal. Here, let me unburden you of that, and in return, I'll trade you a final time, and give you a sack that has a special clasp on it. It'll only take a moment, and if you have anything stored, I'll be sure to move it over to the new container."

With that, the ringleader takes both the crystal and the chest from you, pockets the crystal and pulls a sack from beneath an oversized dark wooden desk. "See? I said only a moment, and it wasn't a minute longer. I believe you'll find this most versatile. Return to me if you find more."

Making Major Bag Wearable

You get to choose between 3 locations--back, shoulder, or belt--each location comes with a different price tag.

>ask ringleader about back
An Ophidian Cabal ringleader glances at your empty hand and says, "Yep, you heard right.  I can attach a strap to a sack that has one of those blood crystal clasps, and then you can wear it on your back.  It'll cost you 1,000 bloodscrip if you're interested.  Hold the container in your right hand, and make sure you've got enough redeemed bloodscrip to cover the cost.  I'll get you fixed up right away."

>ask ringleader about shoulder
