Strong box.png

Strong boxes are wood-based containers used by characters to carry most of their inventory with them. They can also be used to increase space in bank slots or in the storage (the vault) you can access when inside player housing.

  • They are primarily made by Carpenters, but you may get some as you do quests and items that function in the same manner are sold by some NPC merchants.
  • At one time, strong boxes added additional weight to your character (a mechanic that could slow movement) but this was removed. As a result, both strong boxes and Backpacks serve the same purpose.
  • Each player-made (crafted) strong box also has the same number of slots as player-made backpacks of the same Tier.
  • Due to market fluctuations and item availability, it's wise to search the broker for both backpacks and strong boxes now that they function in the same manner. At times, both backpacks and strong boxes with the same number of slots can vary greatly in price and you may save a great deal of coin.

A tip for carpenters: strong boxes have new boxes at each tier, with new recipes appearing on recipe sheets ending in "5" (e.g., 25, 35, 45, etc) for each crafting tier.
