Personal inventory limits[2][3] are tied to a backpack.[4] Material and gatherable items are subject to quantity rather than weight limits. Caravans and Mules are intended to be the primary mode of transportation of goods beyond these limits.[5][6]

  • Mules can carry roughly 10 times more than backpacks. Caravans can carry roughly 10 times more than mules.[7]
  • Caravans will have carrying capacity limits and customizable stats, such as defensive points, speed and number of hired NPC guards.[8]

Item stacks will in general have quantity limits based on the type of item.[5]

  • The stacking limit of potions might be one hundred. The stacking limit of food items might be 999 or 1000.[5]

A backpack is an item crafted by artisans that provides personal inventory space.[4]

  • The higher level the backpack, the greater the inventory space.
  • Different backpack types cater to different activities. For example:

In order to roleplay you need to be able to represent kind of what your character is doing in that world and you know part of what animation is doing is creating these sockets on the let's say the belt or the backpack that you know can plug in certain types of props or items that are created by the character team.[10]Steven Sharif

Storage

Storage points exist at Warehouses within nodes and within freeholds.[12]

  • Access permissions can be set to allow others to access a player's personal storage devices.[13]
    • Personal storage chests may be set to permit access by family or guild members.[14]
  • Warehouses may enable a player to transfer non-material goods between alts. This excludes resources, materials or anything that relies on the caravan system.[15]

Player housing storage

Player housing provides an amount of storage.[16]

  • Access permissions can be set to allow others to access a player's personal storage devices.[13]
  • Personal storage chests may be set to permit access by family or guild members.[14]

Banking

Nodes advance to the first stage quickly. This enables NPC services such as vending or banking items.[17]

Account management

The account management page is used to assign or reassign crowdfunding items to specific characters:[18]

Mules

Mules are mounts that assist in the transport of goods, resources, and gatherables to increase a player's carrying capacity.[21] Mules transport goods on a much smaller scale than the caravan system.[22]

Caravans

Caravans facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[24]

The caravan system is an open world PvP system that revolves around opportunity and risk. Caravans facilitate the transfer of goods for players wishing to turn a profit.[24]

  • Caravans can transport goods for more than one player.[28]

Caravan initiation

Players can initiate caravans (via a NPC) with the following parameters.[30]

When you initiate a caravan you're going to be able to determine the resources of the caravan is going to have in it. You're going to be able to determine whether or not this caravan has been initiated for a specific quest in a nearby node. You're going to be able to deliver goods for trade or to just warehouse in a new region, so that you have access to that local market.[30]Steven Sharif

When you're in a nearby node that you need to drive caravan to... you're going to have an option from the NPC within a nearby node to dictate the caravan launch as a recipient of the temple yeah.[30]Steven Sharif

Personal caravan initiation

Personal caravans can be launched from any point of storage.[31]

Naval caravan initiation

Naval caravans are capable of transitioning to and from land caravans at the point of intersection of land and ocean.[34][32][33]

  • There will be a delay of one or two minutes while the caravan transitions while a conversion structure spawns. This introduces a small window of vulnerability.[34][32]
  • The conversion structure does not benefit from damage mitigation points of land or naval caravans, so it's a very weak position to be in.[35]

At the point in which your character or model intersects with an ocean it will spawn a conversion mesh or a conversion structure; and there will be a period of time, up to several minutes depending on the capacity of the caravan with the resources and/or materials that is necessary for the conversion to take place; and then the naval caravan will be available; and you can intersect that line again with land to try to convert back to a land-based caravan[34]Steven Sharif

Mailing items

Items and resources are not able to be mailed.[36][37]
