Book Text:

...These appear to be the
pages that were ripped from
Garik's Articles on
Holding...

A key secret a novice will
never pick up on is the
exact method of bag
expansion. To correctly
expand a legendary bag to
its full capacity you must
use a bit of Abu-Kar's
Arcane Solution. Be warned
this solution is quite
expensive due to its
rarity!

Most peddlers will offer a
similar but quite inferior
solution under various
names; the most common is
'Inverse Arcane Solution'.
Using this inferior
solution will allow you to



expand the bag but it will
not impart any magical
properties.









The exact method of
solution application is
meticulously detailed in a
diagram so amazing you find
yourself at a loss of words
to describe its genius. You
feel compelled to try and
scribe this image to
memory.

You must learn and scribe 3 books:
1) Garik's Secrets of Bag Expansion
2) Extradimensional Luggage: A Guide' from Scribe Zikett in POK
3) Guide to Transcedent bags from Scribe Zikett in POK

Then combine in any tailoring box. My Tailoring is 12 ad I did it no problem

I bought all both books and scribed them (Guide to Transcendent bags and 'Extradimensional Luggage: A Guide' ). I tried combine in experiment, I still get same mesg - "This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this"

I noticed I have only 1 recipe in the list for a heavy bag. I then went to gain tailoring skill (now 54), and still just 1 in list. Bought both books again and scribed them, still only 1 recipe shows. Tried combine and still same mesg - "This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this"

and I made this combine on my other character just minutes before to test it. (though he is a 300 skill tailoring with many books bought)

You need to buy Garik's Secrets of Bag Expansion from Garik in Sunrise Hills, the player housing area. Then scribe it to have the ability to make the pack.
Still won't combine?

Have you scribed Garik's Secrets of Bag Expansion and yet still receive the message "Sorry, but you don't have everything you need for this recipe in your general inventory" and "You are missing an Unexpanded Tailored Legendary ___________"?

To fix this, simply combine the unexpanded bag and the desired Solution without using the recipe window (ie click Experiment from the recipe window). Despite the recipe appearing in the list, it is still considered an unknown recipe. Unfortunately no matter how many times I've made them in experimental mode, I still can't use the recipe window.

Hope that helps!

Well, I followed your advice but still can't combine them. I get the message "This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this" I have bought and scribed the paper.

What am I doing wrong?

I had the same issues combining as Ridolain. I was able to get it to work by also buying and scribing 'Extradimensional Luggage: A Guide' from Scribe Zikett in POK.

To clarify, can you craft these items if you only scribe the Extradimensional Luggage book? Is this true for both the Tailored Legendary and Heavy Tailored Legendary or just one type?

ok, it's some months since the last post, and I'm still confused.

Bought the unexpanded bag, bought Abu-Kar and did combine. Voila, it worked. This with my rogue (84 in Tailor)

The following day on diff toon, (with 54 in tailor), tried and got "This seems correct but something is wrong. Perhaps you need to know something more in order to combine this"
No idea why? Going to find the scribe in PoK......


edit: ok, had to scribe both books. Why on one char and not the other I have no idea, but it worked a treat in experiment mode.

off the west room of the Guild Hall is the gate to bring you to Sunrise. do a search for anyone who pops up in the listing. then hit go. the gate to the zone will open. after zoning in you will see a tent like structure. just inside is a table with 4 or 5 vendors. 2 of them are selling houses .. one is the Master Collector. He is the one you want for the page. it sells for 32pp .. scribe in in an open inventory slot. once you scribe it you are now ready to turn and face the loom. put the bag and the solution in and hit combine. you now have a 14 slot no trade bag. the cost of the solution is 2626pp.

I'am guessing USING the "Inverse Arcane Solution" will allow the bag to remain tradeable?

Nope - it is still no trade but weighs like 800 so it's good for bank bags but not carry-on. If you want to take them with you pay the extra money for the Abu-Kar solution which imparts the weight reduction.

I don't suppose their are any other vendors for these books? Or is the intent since both are no drop, to force anyone who wants full use of the legendary bags, to purchase the expansion, in order to be able to buy the books and scribe them. IE: I cannot give a Tailored Legendary Bag, to another of my accounts, because a) once expanded its no trade. so b) i can give the unexpanded version to an alt account, but i MUST scribe the books to do the 15 trivial combine in order to expand. So bazaar buyer beware: as of this posting, you must have HOT on the account, you want to use the expanded versions.Unless there is a vendor in a non - House Of Thule zone.

Actually, I don't have HoT, and I had no problem zoning into housing area to access vendors. I even crafted a chair (was just messing around,) with the stuff on one vendor. The buy back on it was much worse than any crafted item I've ever worked with though. With my CHA I usually lose about 20-25% of the cost (with no failures,) but with the chair it was at an 85% loss. Oh well. Don't know about the books specifically though.
