If you’ve played for very long, you may have noticed that you can accumulate a
sizable collection of armor, weapons, bandages, food, and just… well… stuff. And
while you can (and should) sell things as you go to fund your continued adventures,
sometimes you run into things you want to keep. Maybe it’s a weapon with a cool look
that you might want to use for transmogrification or maybe it’s a full set of armor
that you use for an alternate talent spec. Whatever your reasons for hanging on to
the things you collect in game, wow gold for sale it’s far too easy to fill up all
your available inventory space. So what do you do when you have stuff you want to
keep and no place to keep it?
Fortunately there are lots of options for storage in World of Warcraft: all you have
to do is take advantage of them.
Stock up on bags
The first and simplest way to expand your inventory is to buy some bags. While you
will run into some as you level up, they’re probably smaller than those you can find
elsewhere. Here’s how you can find some shiny new bags with a minimum of hassle…
Head to the nearest auction house. This is the most straightforward option, but be
prepared to pay for it. If you’re just getting started, Netherweave Bags will give
you a lot of storage for a minimal cost — providing 16 slots of space for around 25
gold each. If you have the coin, you can pick up larger bags — like the 20-slot
Frostweave Bag or the 22 slot Embersilk Bag — but expect to pay several hundred gold
per bag, at least.
If that’s out of your price range, finding a tailor who’s willing to craft bags for
you in exchange for materials is a good bet. If you are a tailor you can, of course,
make your own bags — but it’s exceptionally useful to have higher level bags when
you’re still at a low level, before you can craft them yourself. Just look up the
materials required to make each bag, purchase them, and then hunt around until you’ve
found a tailor to make them for you. Just remember, when asking, be polite, don’t
spam, and offer a tip. Even though you’re providing the materials, the tailor is
providing the skill — and it’s just polite to offer them something in exchange for
If you just can’t spare the coin to buy bags, you can try asking your friends if they
have any bags to spare. Again, it’s important to be polite and not be a pest, but if
you have higher level friends on your server, they may have bags that aren’t being
used because they’ve upgraded to better ones. You don’t know until you’ve asked!
Visit your local bank
But even with the best bags on the market, you can easily fill up your inventory
space. Fortunately, you’ve got a huge second inventory in your local bank. If you’ve
never paid the bank a visit, there’s no time like the present! Visit any major city
– all Horde and Alliance capitals will have a bank, and most neutral cities as well
– and talk to one of the bank tellers to access your very own bank vault. If you’ve
got materials you’re saving for crafting or gear you’re saving for
transmogrification, this is the perfect place to stash it — and clean out your
inventory in the process.
You’ll notice that below the available storage slots there are 7 bag slots, each of
which can be unlocked — for a price. These slots can be filled with any bag you have
and each costs a little more to unlock (the first is 10 silver, the second 1 gold,
the third 10 gold, and from there on out 25 gold each). We recommend unlocking
additional slots as you need them and filling them with hand-me-down bags when you
upgrade the bags in your inventory.
