Bags and Satchels in New World

Introduction to Bags in New World

Bags and Satchels in New World are obtainable from either the Armoring trade skill or quests. These bags will allow you to carry more weight in your inventory at all times as long as they are equipped. When you see the term encumbrance in relation to New World, it means weight limit.

Increasing your weight limit is a very important thing to do in New World so that you have to stop at settlements much less often. This is particularly important when Mining, Harvesting, Logging, Fishing, or Skinning, as you want to be able to gather many resources.

You do receive a free Worn Traveler’s Satchel from questing around level 12 from a quest called “Between Innkeeps” that will increase your encumbrance by 50. This will mean you can hold 50 weight more than without it. You probably will be looking to craft bags with even more encumbrance limit. Eventually, you will also unlock a second bag slot so you can have 2 equipped.

Be sure to check out our post on all of the perks you can apply to your bag when you are crafting it as well.

Some Notes on the table above:

  • Crafted bags show a base weight limit and a weight limit range potential. Base is the amount you will get at the normal gear score for that item. If you use alternative ingredients, you can increase the gear score to improve the weight limit amount. The higher the gear score, the more weight limit.
  • The Base Tier Ingredients section shows the default ingredients. You can follow the link on the ingredient box to NWDB to see the alternative ingredients you can use instead.
