— in-game description

A Rune of Holding is a rune that can be applied to bags to increase storage capacity to 10 slots. It has a superior version, the Superior Rune of Holding, which can increase to 15 slots instead.

Equipment Packs or Belt Pouches are not technically bags so cannot be upgraded with this rune.

  • Unlike regular upgrade components, a Rune of Holding can't be salvaged again from the item it was used on.
  • Some bags already have 10 slots when acquired, such as Zehtuka's Packs or Charr Bags. Trying to use the rune on them will display a message "This bag was already improved", even though they have technically never been improved.


  • This is one of three runes that is not a suffix for armor pieces, being used to upgrade a bag instead.
  • Would the suffix be applied to the bag, it would become a "Bag of Holding" an iconic item in the Dungeons and Dragons table top RPG.
