Containers are used to store items in your character's inventory.

Every character's inventory has one place for a Backpack, one place for a Belt Pouch, two places for Bags and, since the Fourth Anniversary content update, 1 place for an Equipment Pack.

A Backpack holds 20 items, an upgraded Belt Pouch holds 10, bags can hold 15, and the largest Equipment Pack can hold 20. Thus, a character can hold up to 80 items; however, an Equipment Pack can only hold weapons or armor not customized for another character.

  • The backpack cannot be dragged away into another container or be destroyed.
  • A belt pouch holds 5 items, 10 when upgraded with a Rune of Belt Holding.
  • A bag holds 5 items, 10 when upgraded with a Rune of Holding.
  • Charr Bags and Zehtuka's Pack hold 10 items and are treated like a bag.
  • All types of bags can be upgraded with a Superior Rune of Holding to hold 15 items.
  • Equipment Packs come in various sizes. The Small Equipment Pack holds 5 items, the Light Equipment Pack holds 10 items, the Large Equipment Pack holds 15 items, and the Heavy Equipment Pack holds 20 items.
  • Only weapons, armor and costumes may be stored in an Equipment Pack.
  • The Backpack, Belt Pouch and common bags can be dyed. Equipment packs, Charr Bags, and Zehtuka's Pack can be dyed, but do not show any change in color.
  • The Incubator Kit isn't technically a container as it can't be equipped in the inventory, though it can be used to store specific items.
Bug Bug.Containers cannot be dragged to/within a Xunlai Chest by "dropping" them onto a tab. To move a container, hover over the tab until it displays the contents and then deposit it in a slot of choice.
