#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 07 2004 at 8:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It sure does, especially if your paying in excess of 1kpp for this item.

I need to get one of these for my trader. Amount of times i've had her zone out of bazaar then wonder why i'm not moving.
Everytime I do the guild burst into laughter, they've all done it, just i'm the only one to own up.
This bag could help with the problem i'm sure.
Too much wine can make you forget your not on your main but your trader. BE WARNED.

Keep SoW potion in your bag. You can walk heavily with SoW and any weight.

Bought last week in Bazaar for 750pp. Everything on Sullon Zek is vastly more expensive than it should be ... :(

It's invaluable to me, for kiting hill giants :)

After seeing two listed in bazaar at 10K and 12K respectively, decided I'd throw mine out there in PoK.. asked and got 4K for it within 5 minutes, so count yerself lucky if you bought it without the seller realizing the coin WR

I just bought one on CT for 50pp. And yes indeed it does reduce coin wgt, once I converted the token into the gem pouch (give the token to Caerlyna in the bazaar) and put the pouch in a slot my wgt went down by 8 (I was carrying 897 pp at the time).

LOL, don't feel so bad. Me and two guildies have been in Nadox for months, leveling up. I must have destroyed a dozen of these, and sold quite a few to the merchants in PoK.

I can just see it now, sombody posting in a message board somewhere.....

Well although the post above is quite old I feel the need to point out that lore item loot in LoY is unsellable to npc merchants. They won't buy it and it has been like this since LoY release.
Also dropped by...

I do believe the name was a soot covered miner. Troll, right as you leave the lava from zone in he was standing in the boulders there, only took 3 or 4 of those miners down and we picked one of these up, rest dropped picks or pick parts. They only hit to 130 or so, took easily with 56 chanter 52 wizard and 54 monk (me). Thanks Adams!
Coin wt reduce?
# Mar 04 2003 at 6:17 PM Rating: Default
Would someone with this please test if it reduces coin wt.? It may indeed, by the name of it...

And thx for posting where and from what it drops!

I do believe this does reduce coin wieght, my test was simple, the gem bag was empty, the gem bag wieght is 0.1, when i dropped it into a slot in inventory my wieght dropped by 4. So it has to be effecting the wieght of the coins, i had 550-600 coins on my character at the time.

Being a mage who uses 4 glowing backpack (10 slot 100% wieght reduction) for looting stuff the only thing that has caused me to get encumbered has been coin, with this i will happily be able to stay out gaining loot longer with out worrying about encumberance. Better solution for me then trying to increase my wimpy 65 str....

Oh! It dropped of a Soot Covered Miner, the one that spawns on the right side as you come out of from the Gunthak zone

Dropped off a guardian for my group last night.. also confirmed a 50% savings on coin weight with a simple 100plat bank transfer with and without pouch on me. Did a conversion on 721000 copper and it seemed to save even more than 50%

Reduces weight of coins carried by 30%. I had mine drop off a sooty (?) miner
RE: Coin wt reduce?

30% sounds about right to me too. Tested 4k, which weighed 100.0, it weighed only 70.0 with the Gem Pouch.
Seems to a rare drop from any of the miner-type mobs in and around the mines (troll tunnelers, troll quarriers, soot covered miners, etc.).
