Can someone give some info about the new 20 slot bags from the Lost Shores and Fractals of the Mist updates?

20 slot bag from the one time event:
http://wiki.guildwar...Karka_Shell_Box

And then these are these 3 from:
http://wiki.guildwar...m/wiki/BUY-4373

20 Slot Fractal Exotic Equipment Box - 250 Fractal Relic
20 Slot Fractal Rare Equipment Box - 200 Fractal Relic
20 Slot Fractal Uncommon Equipment Box - 150 Fractal Relic

Are there any others?

What exactly is your question? The karka 1 was from the chest that spawned after the ancient karka died. The other 3 are from the fractals lobby where you spend relics you get from beating a fractal

What more do you want to know? Seems self explanatory.

http://wiki.guildwar...Karka_Shell_Box If you don't have it already, you're out of luck. One time event. 20 slot bag, account bound.

http://wiki.guildwar...m/wiki/BUY-4373 20 slot bag, the exotic one will put exotic gear in it first but any other gear can go in it too.

You exploited it, attempting to find 2 precursors. I wouldn't call it luck.

Didn't know those bags existed!  Now I need to do more fractals...  (not that I need a special bags for rares and exotics, but 20 slots is 20 slots!)

I know this is not anets fault but I played the event for 2 hours and couldn't finish the last 30 minutes because I had to go to bed.
In my opinion I still deserve a reward, too bad I lost those awesome things. >:(

They wont lower much further since the bulk of the cost is the rune of holding.

The last price I looked at was 11+ gold for a 20 slot. The rune used to make the 20 slot cost 10 gold. These drops and rewards certainly will not help a craftier to make any money.

Has crafting ever been profitable though?

I haven't completed the story but I done most of it, can I have the reward for finishing it as IMO I still deserve a reward. Games don't work like that and we all know it.

Crafting has never been profitable, ever

I wouldn't buy exotic one, considering the exotic droprate :P

Finally. I can have my char with all slot 20 bag without even waste 1 single copper on TP nor rune of holding crafting one. :cool:

Oh shit. ArenaNet might want to change the price for that.

OR maybe, i can suggest to buy in a rush all the 20 slot bag you need, because Anet will (mark my word) destroy the fun, making the token price way higher, or just down them to 15 slot bag. Whiners will cry as hell about their market corner ruined ;) Don't tell me i didn't warn you all ;)

Glad to see people learned from the Karma fiasco that exploiting goes unpunished.

Not sarcasm, I'm serious, Anet showed their hand when they removed the bans on Karma exploiters so I am happy to see people learn from that.

My overflow was one of the last to finish as we were quite slow but we had been having some good banter in chat (as the gameplay was so dull we were just all chatting) and I had a bit of loyalty to staying and seeing my group triumph even after my guild Mumble started sharing invites for the final chest. If I wasn't sticking with my overflow for camaraderie I'd of grabbed as many chests as I could, why not? there is no punishment for exploiting.

20 slot bags were always stupidly expensive due to the runes of holding being stupidly expensive, personally as someone who doesn't have alot of gold or time to farm mats and grind through the crafting process I am happy to see 20-slot bags being given out for events and hope to see more in the future

It definitely is. I made quite a fair share from just crafting. I can get money actively doing other things but throwing a few gathered materials together and selling them off is great for the days I'm too busy to play. Keeps that money coming in.

It absolutely is! I make tons of money off of crafting.  You simply have to farm and be smart about what you  make to make it so.

what's the point of getting the exotic one when you can save 100 relics by getting the uncommon one?
i mean... who cares where my drops goes at first? (i could understand if they were like invisible bags or craftsmen bags... not quality lol)

Actually, that rare and exotic one does make sense... Those are so rare and exotic, they may get lost between the whites and the blues otherwise!  Now they'll stand out in that otherwise empty bag :P

exploit? using game mechanics isn´t exploit.

You could do it the times you wanted but you were only rewarded once per character. Next time play with party or friends all in diferent overflows.

No, in that case they wouldn't make sense.  That bag would fill up too quickly.  However if you only get one once during a blue moon, if it's in that empty bag, you'll be able to spot it right away.  Right there, shining, in it's own bag, having all the space it needs!

250 per bag is reasonable, if anything that is 50 dungeons runs, at ca 30min each you have 25h hours non stop. Fairly sure you can make 11g or more (cost of 20slot crafted bag) in 25h of Grind elsewhere.

What you are saying here... I gathered materials and instead of selling them for a higher price I crafted and sold results for slightly more based on current weather in the Auction House? Because that sounds like Farming made you the moneys not crafting.

I think they should start selling the 20 slot runes of holding at the Relic Vendor for like 300 Fractal Relics as well so, we can make different type 20 slot bags. like the invis or oiled by getting the runes in a different way.

So you can either farm 10g or farm 300 relics.

Now before people start ripping me because relics are way to easy to get then the number can be higher. I haven't ran any fractals yet so, I don't know in what quantity they drop so if it need to be 500 or 1000 or whatever it is fine, I am just saying they need to add a different way to get the runes of holding.

I just wish they had a white level bag since that way it would automatically sort out the items I want to salvage.

I suppose people with extra bag slots will find them useful, though.
