Compartment quivers were initially released during December 2018 Duskruin Arena and sold at Bundle Up to assist with ammo handling prior to the archery updates. The concept was designed and delivered by GM Avaluka.

Analyze

Below is the base ANALYZE for compartment quivers. Additional information found in the ANALYZE as part of tier unlocks can be found beneath each additional tier.

You analyze your quiver and sense that the creator has provided the following information:
~Compartmentalized Quiver~
    Compartmentalized quivers keep your ammo collection neat, tidy, and all in one place!
~General Script Info~
    * Once unlocked, these quivers gain access to weightless extra compartments to store ammo bundles.
    * Only the currently selected compartment's contents will count towards encumbrance.
    * Each compartment only holds 1 bundle.
    * Use READY AMMO on the quiver itself and it will use whichever bundle is in the current compartment when you FIRE.
    * Quivers can be shoulder, belt, or thigh-worn.
~Alteration Guidelines~
    * Alterations to the 15/15/15 and long description are fine, though shows are not possible.
    * Quivers MUST be made of metal and have the noun 'quiver'.
    * You may NOT describe the quiver's wear location, such as using the words belt or thigh.
