Great another free 18 slot! o/
Why is this bag unique? As a LW I've had to farm Clefthoof leather so much that I've ended up with stacks of tokens. After using a couple for the PVP gear there is nothing else to spend these things on other than bags... well bag.. Blizz have seen fit that we can only hold one of these mystical 18 slot bags.
This bag is not that hard to get, if you're farming your way up to Exalted after being done with all the quests (also the chain greatmother gives) you'll have 8 tokens in a matter of time.
the question is more, do you want to spend your tokens on a bag, or save for something better? (but also more expensive.)
So, only bag? I don't do pvp...so can I still get anything else?
Unless you are an alchemist or saving up for an epic Talbuk, this is the item you'll be wanting. The other option is level 66 blue armor pieces, those aren't bad, but if you level by questing instead of grinding, you'll end up replacing those pieces soon enough.
Other than the alchemy recipe, this is the only item that does not require the Halaa Battle Tokens. The Halaa world PvP is structured around you having a group and your opponents being obliging enough to show up and fight you. Then there's the question of winning. I think its a shame more people don't try the world PvP, but most people find it easier just to avoid it. I personally think it'd be nice if the town reverted to "neutral" status every few hours for a minimum of two minutes to allow for the possibility of more conflict. But I'm not in charge of the game.
The consequence of all of this is that on a PvE server, you will very likely have more dust and research tokens than you will have battle tokens. This is especially true on servers where one team is heavily dominant. Those 66 blue armor pieces will probably be harder to save up for than you imagine. So save up the dust and check in on Nagrand from time to time. When your side has the town, grab the bags (and the recipe if you are an alchemist). Don't bother saving up for everything else because they use battle tokens and PvE servers will find those to be rarer than they think.
I got this bag from killing ogres on Northwest Nagrand.
I needed the Warbeads for Kurenai rep (Talbuk <3), they dropped some nice money and greens, and since they are in Nagrand, they drop the powder samples too. So I just got a bunch of those and gave em in... took 2 days or so for this bag.
You can only own and equip one of these bags, I learned the hard way.
is it 20 slots now?
This bag is pretty useless actually. An 18 slot bag can easily be bought out of the AH nowadays. The time spent farming Oshu'gun crystal powder could be better spent farming gold to simply buy an 18 slot bag off the AH.
The only reason for obtaining this bag is if you happen to come across 160 Powder samples from doing quests in Nagrand (which is very unlikely) or the fact that its blue and unique.
As a leatherworker you get a huge gain while "farming" the crystals.Actually, you can take the quests from the safary, do the skinning/LWing, collect the crystals, gain experience...Profession leveling, character leveling and getting a container.Could it get easier?
How to make money off old tokens. I was traveling through Negrand on my 80 and remembered I had some Halanni tokens and powder. Bought this bag, used it to replace a
Imbued Netherweave Bag
in my bank and sold the
Imbued Netherweave Bag
for 1g. lol freed up bag space and made a gold.
For some strange reason that I have actually forgotten, this bag meant a lot to me - so much that it is my longest surviving 18-slot bag, though it has been retired to one of my bank bag slots for years.
Now, however, it's time is done... it is now replaced by a younger and bulgier model.
