Assuming people would pay 6k for a tink bag, when Leatherfoot Haversacks are often 5k in the bazaar, and are better.

Unless they changed it again, so long ago it feels like a hundred years I broke down and bought several of these for my own use, woke up 1 day with 1 bag in my inventory and a whole lots of inventory around me, seems eq DECICED TO MAKE A WHOLE MESS OF PREVIUOSLY NON LORE BAGS, LORE , so mabe they switched it back, but for at least a little while these were lore, but I have leanred while playing this game that there are so many wt reduc bags out there, and since eq does change the rules often it aint wize to have more than 1 of any bag. something to consider if like many of us you like the extra speed of little to no weight there are medicine bags thatb only have 25 wt reduc on them, I like these for food bags since food does not weigh much anyway. then with a bag of the tinkers and a leatherfoot haversack and a bfew others you can aquire you can have all the inventory and weight reduc you need w/o the darned nuisance of waking up 1 day surrounded by the loot which used to be in a bag that suddenly became lore.

Be Well

Leatherfoot haversacks hold Giant items as well. They are the exact same bag as a tink bag, except for the fact they are lighter, and therefore better.

Since the Leatherfoots run 5k-5500 on my server, I cannot imagine why anyone would pay more for a worse bag.

Can you define for me how .4 lighter is better? Not all of us play Monks :)
Even tho I am a GM tailor I still seem to have lots of Tinkerers bag and no Leatherfoot ones, Hmm is it beacuse they are only made by halflings?

You might want to fill your bank and shared slots with Deluxe Toolboxes, they cost a few plat are 10 slot and giant sized containers. Sold in POK by gnome merchant in North trade building. All bank slots on my main and alts are Deluxe Toolboxs.

He's actually refering to the toolbox not the bag of tinkers, and it is a good idea to fill your bank with giant 10 slot bags. I do the same myself only I fill my bank with trader satchels.

Trader satchels arent bad to use for your bank, I like the toolboxes simply so I can pop one into my shared slots easily, or give it to an alt.

I used to buy blue diamonds from the vendors, but the npc vendors were nerfed a couple months ago. They now only hold the items that are visible in their inventory, so the blue diamonds are getting destroyed when people sell them to the merchants. The vendors get full of garbage loot very quickly after a patch, so the main BD vendors are destroying hundreds of BDs a day most likely. Try checking the vendors in gunthak, LDON camps, PoT, Nexus, PoK, etc. and you will see that none of them have any blue diamonds. You might get lucky and find one or two on one of them, but then someone will sell some crap to them and they will commence destroying any blue diamonds that people sell to them.

The haversack IS a pain to make. Don't expect anyone to be willing to trade it for a tink + 100pp. The haversack takes 36 tufts of dire wolf fur, 1 acorn oil, 3 blue diamonds, 3 platinum threads, 3 jars of acid, 3 purified waters. This is if you don't fail at all on the pre combines. with 200 pottery, 250 brewing, 190 smithing, 250 tailoring the failures on the pre-combines are about 5% on the pottery, brewing, and smithing. Haven't had any failures on the tailoring pre combines for a long time.
Blue diamonds are about 500pp in the bazaar on my server, I try to get the tufts at 30pp or less, the acorn oil costs about 50pp, and the platinum threads cost 210pp per. so 500x3 + (500x3x0.05[pottery pre-combine failure ratio])+
(500x3x0.05[brewing pre-combine failure ratio])+
(210x3) + ([1500+630] x 0.05[smiting failure ratio]) + (50pp for acorn oil/misty acorn)[the failure ratio on the acorn oil is 5-10% as well, but is incidental. Same for making the purified waters too].

so 1500 + 75 + 75 + 630 + (106.5) + 50 = 2436.5
this is for the 3 infused platinum threads.
now 36x30 for the tufts of dire wolf fur and you get 1080 for the tufts

so 2436.5 + 1080 = 3516.5pp

with 250 tailoring and a geerlok there seems to be only a 5-10% failure ratio as well so

3516.5 + (3516.5 x 0.05) =

3516.5 + 175.8 = 3692pp

note: the failure ratio at 5% is a best case scenario, and your best chance of getting that is if you do the combines in bulk. ie. 50 blue diamonds at a time. I've done 20 bds before and ended up only with 12 or 13 infused platinum threads. Same with the bags. Sometimes you will be succesfull 10 times in a row, but you can also fail 2 or 3 times in a row.

I've been selling the haversacks for 6k on my server, and the literally are bought in less than 5 minutes normally.

to be able to get the blue diamonds at 500pp or less you need to check the bazaar as often as possible. I usually clean out and bds that are under 500pp, so the other tradeskillers may be wondering why there's no bds under 500pp :)

same for the tufts. if there's a couple more people making the bags you may not be able to get the tufts, let alone for 30pp.

Well, basically, I would never trade a haversack for a tink, especially for only 100pp, I might consider it for 1k or more though.

OH yeah, it also will cost hundreds of kpp to get tailoring to 250, and much time camping the othmir furs, rockhoppers(almost always camped now. 1 level 65 can own the whole cave). The only way I could see making 250 tailoring in less than 3-6 months or so(assuming you're level 65 and play a few hours a day) would be if you had a few friends helping you with the component gathering.

Ok I buaght one of these and tried this trade with no sucuess or even reply's. Could just be that the Harversack is such a pain to make that noone has them. My question is now. Is the harversack worth the lower wt. for a MNK I saw one being sold by a PC in bazzar for 9k is this a rip off or is that what I'm going to have to pay to get the lower wt. bag?

haversack is 100% giant capacity, last i read. so, concievable...massive good buy for a monk because you finally don't have to let all items rot or TRUST that loots will be split at end of run. imho YES! get the bag. as for 9k. is a sellers when i saw one for 5k and another for 15k. i figured, somebody would buy... just not me, as a lvl 48, i have never had more than 6kpp at any given time...but i'm working on it.

# Dec 22 2003 at 8:20 AM Rating: Default
As with the pre-christmas Patch of 2003, bags 'CAN' be sol din the bazaar.

You have to turn them in to a female near the nexus bank in order to get a "token" with the same name.

The player then buys the token, goes to this female and hands the token in for the said bag.

Just bought this bag last night for 5259 PP. Nice to have a bag with 100% weight reduction that does not disappear when you log. Got it for my 53 druid, and even though everything in zone conned green, there was still A LOT of agro. Yes Invis or Camo will work with some of the Flame and Cinder Goblins, but there are Goblin Wizards and Shamans down there that see right through it. Once they hit, you invis pops off and the rest of them agro.

1. Get a map. This took me about 10 tries to find the right path. This is a very winding and confusing maze.
2. If you can not solo 2 or 3 of these guys at once, better go in a group.
3. Running will work only if you are very familiar with the zone. There are many confusing turns and pitfalls here. Also if you run, be prepared to have a huge train following you.
4. I bound myself just outside the zone and gated there when I got lost. Also was helpful just to root the Gobbies and gate out to start the maze over.
5. Once you get a little more than half way there, you will only see the clockworks, no goblins, so you really only need to fight through about half way through maze.
6. STR buffs and sow will help, 5-6k of PP will probably put you well over 200 stones. You need to sow in LavaStorm, before you enter SOL A. If you are in a group with VERY trusted friends or guildies, you may want to distribute the PP around instead of putting all on 1 character for weight reasons if you are one of the smaller classes.

After I got the bag and was no longer encumbered by the extra PP, decided to look around. Got the Platinum Armband of the Efreeti as well as the Obsidian Shard off the Kobold. Also got a few Fine Steel weapons of the Goblins. Not a bad night.

Went to Sol A, solo, to try and get the bag, while still level 31. I was overwhelmed with the amount of goblins you had to get rid off to get to the vendor. If your below lvl 41, go with a group and it shouldn't to tough to get to the vendor. Make sure you get a strength buff casted on you.. 5000pp is heavy.

Finally saved up enough to get a couple of WR bags. The vendor conned apprehensive to me and I got the following prices at various Charisma levels. This should give you an idea of what the bag will cost you.

CHA 83 Price 6430pp
CHA 100 Price 5963pp
CHA 114 Price 5628pp
CHA 128 Price 5329pp
CHA 133 Price 5250pp

I checked the price after adding each piece of CHA gear. I only bought after I hit the 5250 mark. I hope this helps.

I believe faction also affects price and I believe raises the charisma cap to get the best price. The druid above was getting the best price when he cleared 133 cha, so his faction may not be amiable.

which is the better buy?

Which would be a better buy? This bag weights 1.0 stone and sells for 5500pp approx, but the Leatherfoot Haversac weights 0.6 stone and sells for 6 to 7k. Is the 0.4 difference that much better?
RE: which is the better buy?
# Apr 28 2003 at 7:09 PM Rating: Excellent
3,705 posts
Absolutely worth the difference. Put 5 of these in your slots, you've used up 5 wt allowance. 5 leatherfoots only use 3 wt.

2.0 is about 10% of the TOTAL weight a monk can carry without losing AC. Plus, since everything inside the bag weighs zero, the monk in question can now loot heavy items with impunity.

Yes, its monks who will be concerned with this. No it probably would not be worth it for a warrior with 255 str.

It also will be higher level players, who will be willing to pay for the difference. 7k, to many lvl 65's (and some level 50s) is chump change. For example, one guy yesterday in the bazaar was selling 19 Tae ew bloods, for 2500pp each. I know for a fact that he got over 2k for all of them. Thats 38-47.5kpp, on just one day's sales. Someone in his shoes, if they happen to be a monk, certainly would spend an extra 10k for 5 leatherfoot haversacks, over 5 of these. Do a search using bazaar feature for items over 40kpp. there are quite a few. When these guys sell that stuff, they buy upgrades, including 7kpp bags.

I agree with Xaanru completely in that 0.4 of a stone is a big difference. If a monk saves 0.4 on all pieces of equipment, it really adds up. It's just like upgrading an item on a war that gives 10 more hps than the last item. 10 hps is no big deal but if every slot adds another 10 hps it becomes a couple hundred over all. If you are concerned about weight you should save it where ever possible and if that means paying an extra 1k for a bag, so be it. Haversacks go for 6 to 6.5k on Torvo and I would not even think about getting my monk a tink bag. For my druid, it is less of an issue where all I am doing is trying to lessen the burden of acrylia ore and armor loot etc, in which case all I'm after is the 100% WR.

the interesting thing is that as far as I know, the haversacks go for 5k on E-Marr ... ~200 pp less than the tink bag (unless you get a sale off of a player)
so for me it's a MUCH better deal

A unit of weight equal to 14 pounds.

I'm not sure if EQ actually uses stones as units of weight, but I've seen many players say it. It's definitely not stones from the English system. Even just 50 would be equal to 700 pounds.

Some monks are overzealous about their weight and have the bank accounts to fuel it.

So if you are a halfling that can make a Leatherfoot Bag (mad props to you if you can), don't be surprised if your customers are rich monks that are looking for a minute but better weight than a tink bag.

But other than that, .4 difference is irrelevant to other classes.

it's common that people think bags have been nerfed to no drop. the reason the no drop flag comes up onto it is because you have placed a no drop item in the normally droppable bag, to fix that problem. just take out the no drop item and your bag will be droppable

The scoop
# May 25 2002 at 1:58 PM Rating: Excellent
4 posts
Here is the full scoop on this bag:

It is sold by Marfen Binkdirple (name/spelling may not be correct), he is a gnome merchant in Solusek A in the little castle behind the Gabby spawn.

With ~135 Charisma, the bag costs 5,250pp. This is the lowest you can buy it for.

The bag is NOT nodrop, and it is NOT lore.

Essentially it's a much better bargain than the Kayruul's Mystic Pouch because it only weighs 0.6 more and doesn't cost you 10k or require you to roll against 50 other people for it.

Hope this helps.

Yesterday there was a GM event in DL, killing a red dragon to remove a curse from a white dragon. After we did it I was given this bag by the dragon (GM). Is a very nice bag, I could use the proceeds to buy SCHWs, but the ability to hold giant size and 100% reduction is hard to part with. What say you my fellow EQ brothers and sisters?

If you can get CHA to 131... I bought mine yesterday for that price with 131CHA, with CHA at 95 the price was 5875pp. So get a CHA buff before buying this, trust me you wont regret it especially if you are a Monk. I conned the Vendor as Amiable, but without the buff the price was still a bit high.....

It cant be boguth in the Bazaar but there is a merchant in the big room that rells Merchant's Satchel or something like that. They have 10 slots and can fit giant sized items but it is NO DROP so its used mostly for your bank because it also weighs 25. She might have gotten this confused with the Merchants Satchel because they look the same.

Carrying PP

Another way to carry loads of PP (at a cost) is to just by gems (like rubies) and sell them to the gnome vendor. You loose a few plat on the exchange, but it makes carrying that much plat ALOT safer and easier.
#Callandryl, Posted: Aug 04 2001 at 5:03 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I don't know if it has always been this way, but Tink bags are No Drop. I just left Gabbie camp 15 minutes ago. So yes I'm sure. It is No Drop. So if you can't sneak, you better not botch your gnome faction, or else you won't be gettin this bag.

# Nov 01 2001 at 12:26 AM Rating: Default
Hmmm. On Halloween, one of these dropped in Ocean of Tears at the GM event there. The one I looted is no-drop (there were no no-drop items inside - that makes any bag no-drop). Got no confirmation window of it being no-drop when it was looted either.

Um, no, actually the Bag of the Tinkerers is not no-drop. It is not even lore. The image above is the correct one at this time.

The T-Boots (travelers boots) sold by the same merchant are no-drop, however, so if you want those you will have to buy them yourself.

from my experience messin around with different factions and cha, a 105 cha and an indifferent con is enough to get you the best prices in game. i play a chanter who is a master jeweler, so it didnt take me much to try several combinations out on a few vendor to find this out. so anything over 105, when it comes to cha, is only good for a class that can charm things, (even then it can be argued that the added help of it is hard to notice till you get over 150, at least from my experience as a charm kiting chanter, hehe) hope that save some ppl some pp in the long run when considering buying that extra cha gear when they are planning on making big purchases. ;D
prices r in the eye of the holder and the coin purse of the buyer.

Hey, your a wiz. Go there before taking the bank and bind yourself there. Then GG or TL however you wanna call it, back to your local banking institution. Withdraw your standard amount and Gate(lvl 4 spell) back to your bind point...Viola!!! You just moved a ton of cash and only took a few minutes.

Yes, but even if he were to kill him IN Sol A, he'd still have to GO to Sol A with all the weighted money, which kinda makes the corpse-dragging trip from zone line to vendor mute.

1. Have person bind at bank in a town.
2. Duel in SOL away from NPC's
3. Drag corpse to gnome vendor
4. While corpse is being dragged have person withdrawl 5250(or their best price)
5. Rez
6. Purchase boots

I hear this bag is just really expensive. However the 100% weight reduction is very appealling. I just about have enough plat for it now(5000 or so), just don't have the charisma for it. It is so tempting having that much to go buy a Thick Banded Belt instead. Decisions Decisions. Think I will get the bag first.

I got my bag last night and I can say for sure that the Gnome that sells it is not in Ak'Anon anymore. I hunted for an hour and even with my tracking skill maxed, could never pick him up that way either. I went to Sol A and picked him up on tracking immediately. The trip down to his little fort is long and winding. Be prepared to clear the way of many Goblins who are agro and can see through Invis. I cast SOW and Strength on myself before going in because my weight went from 65 to 196 stones due to the 5500 plat I was carrying. I also wore all the Charisma items that I own to help with the price. He charged me 5320 plat for the bag with my Charisma at 104. Just for fun, I took off my Charisma stuff and at my base 70 Charisma, he asked 6330pp for the bag. A whopping 1K increase in the price.
As a level 51 Druid, it's real easy to do this alone, but others can if you get a friend to SOW and Strengh you. The spells should easily last long enough to get the bag and after buying it, you're light as a feather.
I love the bag and will keep all my spare heavy equipment in it, as well as all the heaviest loot. Good Luck getting yours!

Ok, while I have no proof that nothing in the game drops these, do you think Verant would allow something to? Think about it. We have to go on a camp of 7 HOURS just to get a single piece of a small part of a quest (not refering to any in particular, ToV...) Why would they be kind enough to put it as a drop on something?

In reference to monks in general and this bag... This bag is great for everyone, yes! But, monks must remain below (correct me if I'm wrong monks)14 weight total or they begin losing AC and ATK. This is critical since unlike other melee classes, they can't jack their AC up a lot through armor. Even if they can equip it, they start to lose their strong defense skills as they go over 14, even if they have like STR of 150... It won't make a difference... As a consequence my Iksar monk I once had couldn't make much money at all unless he specifically hunted things that dropped light but valuable items... However, when I'd group up with a Mage who could summon weight-less bags, I was able to actually loot and make some money. I hope this helps... 8) This would also be really valuable to those who wear really heavy armor and therefore can't afford to loot because they'll become encumbered.
RE: Monks...
# Oct 21 2001 at 3:01 PM Rating: Default
this would be GREAT bag for my monk or warrior
monk being that he can't loot without going over weight due to the 14 weight thing...
and warrior because my warrior has 140str and is 1point away from being encumbered holding nothing but all his armout a couple backpacks and about 50p
but other than that this bag is absolutely excellent for any char,

oh i also got a nec that likes carrying around a backpack full of rusty halbreds (halbreds weigh 14st. each

Aye, it's true. Monks have a weight limit but, with a recent patch the base weight is 14. Monks now gain an additional allowance of 1 every 15 levels. It is **** pricey though and it will be a while before I can afford one.

Use youre head, if it weighs a lot its not if it doesnt its good. You are not offering any insight to anyone. If im not mistaken that is exactly what these posts are supposedly for. So please Monks just shut up about the weight thing already.

For non bind/port classes .. Get a friend that is level enough to get in with you.. have him bind there.. have him go get the $ out of the bank you gave him before you set out.. and he gates back , hands you the money, you buy the bag, you got the bag and no-one had to walk encumbered? might work i think.

#Anonymous, Posted: May 22 2001 at 6:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You moron, hes a Wizard! Ever been a caster? Theres way to much to worry about to even consider getting enough str items to carry that much plat. Base strength is only 70 or so as it is. Furthermore, its a dungeon goof, you can't sow indoors. So, in your effort to not only humiliate the individual who posted the comment but to also try to seem so smart and experienced, you have only made an *** out of yourself, "duh". I recomend bringing a good sized party of good friends or guild mates (i.e. melee types for the strength) to get your bag, have them carry that heavey plat. Don't waste your time trying to run to the room before sow wears off and buying and camping strength items that you won't need after you buy the bag. Save your time for int and mana items.
RE: to o oo h h hee eav vy

Actually sow does work indoors, but in can only be cast outside. And my guess would be that he would mostly need sow for the journey from the bank (probably freeport) to Sol A which is all outdoors.
I'm not really sure how much 5300 PP weighs, but sow would sure help. Could try str buffs also to help.
When I finally can afford mine, I'll have a friend bind at the merchant and then walk to the bank and gate back with my money so he can buy it for me.
# May 28 2001 at 3:14 AM Rating: Default
5000pp weighs 125 pounds. Most folks will be quite encumbered with this load of pp. Watch folks headed to and from the tunnel in EC. The ones moving really slow have lots of pp on them. With some skill, you get an idea of how much they are carrying by the (complete lack of) speed that they are moving with.
RE: to o oo h h hee eav vy
# May 25 2001 at 12:08 AM Rating: Default
Aye, sow does work indoors, and you can only cast it outside, and str buffs would help, but lets think, how long are the buffs gonna last? To rely on those buffs to last until you get to the merchant would be a bad choice. Binding in there is just a waste of time and effort, why run all the way there and back again when you can just grab a few guildies to help you out? Oh, and with 5300pp you would be quite weighed down, with 70 str and 3250 gp on me, with no items on me but a shadowed rapier and a ring of the ancients, i was encumbered, add 2000 more and I would have hardly moved. Unless you cast your own str buffs, and good ones at that, bring some friends to help :)

If you can actually purchase the bag you only have to worry for about half of the way. The first half of the journey to this vendor is with goblins. Also, I believe only the higher level goblin magic users can see through invisible. You probably will not encounter any of these goblins on the way to the vendor. Once you get to the hallway where you encounter mechs and gnomes you will no longer encounter goblins. If you have strength buff it only has to last until you get to the vendor, you should be much lighter afterward having spent the money you were carrying.

I have made this run before and I didn't have to recast any buffs, nor did my SOW run out. One other buff you will probably want is levitate of some form. It beats accidently falling into lava.
RE: sow time
# Jun 08 2001 at 2:55 AM Rating: Default
SOW lasts up to 36 minutes depending on the casters level, you should be able to get there in that time I would hope. The point of binding there is that druids and wizzies can bind there, port to bank, then gate back, will take a whole minute.
