Preparing for Legion: Bags

Legion Preparation Bags Featured Image

This is the first part of what will eventually comprise my collection of suggestions in preparation for the launch of Legion. I wanted to start off with the very first market that I looked at when I decided to put a little effort into making gold: Bags.

A new expansion typically brings new characters with it. This is especially in Legion because of the new class being introduced. There will be many new Demon Hunters and some will want the biggest bags available. Not just their inventory, but their banks as well.

Additionally, the changes gathering professions in general make it likely that more players will be willing to spend time gathering materials. A player who devotes a good amount of time to farming will almost always want the best bag available for the job. And, from what I have been reading online, it seems that Fishing will be a decent source of gold too.


Generic Bags

The best bag choice is the Hexweave Bag.

These are the best two bags to start stocking up on. They don’t have the limitations that profession specific bags have. They will be also be bought en masse from players who want to upgrade the inventory and bank space for their new Demon Hunters.

Herbalism Bags

The best choice is the Hyjal Expedition Bag.

Legion is bringing some changes to gathering professions. Herbalism will also benefit from the change to gathering nodes. It may create a more welcoming environment for players to try farming for materials which will increase a demand for bags to assist with that goal.

All characters will have to level up through the Broken Isles. Many players will be interested in gathering any herbs as they do in order to gain a small boost in experience and to sell for whatever gold they can get.

All profession bags also face a huge problem in stack size. Most items now stack up to 200. It takes a significant amount of time to gather enough herbs that the few extra slots offered by bags will actually be worth the investment.

Leatherworking Bags

The best choice is the Burnished Leather Bag.

Fishing Bag

The only choice here is the Lure Master Tackle Box.

I have been reading that Fishing may be very profitable in Legion. The biggest downside is the small market. Many players hate fishing and potential sales may be few and far between.
