Bags for the pros
Enchanting bags, made by tailors, come in 16-, 20-, 24- and 28-slot sizes. They hold enchanting dusts, essences, shards and crystals as well as enchanting rods and enchanting formulae. They will not hold elemental essences, wands, vials or oils.
Herbalism bags, also made by tailors, offer 12-, 20- and 24-slot sizes. Frustratingly, they do not hold vials. They'll hold a Blood Scythe
, Night Dragon's Breath
, Packet of Tharlendris Seeds
, Whipper Root Tuber
, Enriched Lasher Root
and druid reagent seeds. They will not hold Evergreen Pouch
, Heart of the Wild
, Un'Goro Soil
. And here's a nice bonus you'll appreciate: When you harvest an herb, it goes directly to your herbalism bag and not into one of your general inventory bags!
Engineering toolboxes hold 20 or 24 items, including explosives (except mines), engineering trinkets, parts, blasting powders, Fused Wiring
, engineering tools (but not mining picks or hammers), Membership Cards
and many other things created using the engineering skill. They will not hold things used in engineering such as ore, motes, gems and cloth.
Jewelcrafting pouches have 20 or 24 slots. As you would expect, they hold all sorts of gems -- and surprisingly, mage mana gems, too!
Miners can choose from 20- or 28-slot sacks. These containers do not hold gems or motes.
And finally, let's look at some specialty bags for ranged ammunition and warlocks. Ammo bags
Stow your ammunition in a quiver
(for arrows) or bandolier
for bullets. Check with your friendly neighborhood leatherworker for a player-made pouch
. And remember, if you store your equipped ammo in an ammo bag, you get a bonus to your rate of fire (10% for the smallest ammo pouch) -- and that equals higher ranged DPS! Soul bags for warlocks Shard bags
give warlocks a consolidated place to store shards. These tailored bags automatically route shards as you create them, so you won't find shards scattered throughout the rest of your inventory. You'll see the number of shards inside a soul bag listed on the bag's icon on your container toolbar -- another handy advantage to helping you keep track of your shards. Soul bags unfortunately do not store healthstones
