New World bags - How to craft bags and where to find New World Rune of Holding

They call me... Bag-ins

New World bags are the most important items in the MMO, beyond even Azoth.

Crafting bags is the only way to expand your inventory. However, you’ll need to spend a while in Aeternum before you get your first bag, and that includes ranking up in your faction.

New World bags - How to craft bags in New World

The first chance to get a bag in New World pops up once you reach level 10, and you’ve got two options for obtaining it. The first is by just following the story. The Innkeep sends you on a quest and rewards you with a bag once you finish, which is great, but it’s also just one bag.

To get more, you’ll need to craft them, but you also need to join a faction. Every bag crafting recipe requires a Rune of Holding, and those are only available through your faction’s store. Which faction you choose has no bearing here, since the shops offer the same items regardless of faction.

Bags come in tiers, and each tier gives you a bonus to your encumbrance. That means you can hold more without having mobility penalized, and given all the items you’ll pick up on your journey, it’s a handy boon to have.
