Special thanks to Rubik for providing the locations of the collection items.

  • Grant Kerr

    Luminescent Seaweed, be careful not to collect driftwood before you need this. You can’t join other Ip’s nor do it on alts. I’m now stuck for 24hrs 🙁

  • Zak McLennan

    I get no dialogue options with Efi, might be a bug?

    • Zak McLennan

      Found the problem, had the bandolier in my bag slot so it would not hand it over and stalled the conversation.

      • Nicci Costin

        I equipped it and can’t seem to unequip it so now it’s bugged

    • Compartilhador

      Check if you are talking with him with the character that completed the story/episode OR you need to talk to Efi only after you collect the rest of the items

  • Jalen Dmello

    This is actually pretty awesome thing they did 🙂

    • Yup free 32 slot bag that doesn’t require any expensive mats? Sign me up

  • Tiavor

    > 18 Supreme Rune of Holding

    I don’t know where this should be cheap or free

    • This is only if you want to craft additional 32 slot bags, the first one is free

      • Tiavor


  • Jacky Andreasdóttir

    Will i lose the bags from the collections by entering the next one?
    actually i am at the 28slot collection and

    cant find my 20 and 24 slot bag

    • Jacky Andreasdóttir

      nvm, you need the bag to start the new collection

  • Mischki

    Is the Artificial Diamond bugged? Or why am i not getting it?

    Have done each of the elemental pre’s around 3 times and did not get it in the shaky chest? Am i missing something?

    • DiePlz

      Have you done the event before unlocking the collection? because I did and I think I already got the chest but the diamond didn’t count? not sure tbh.

    • Bin A Aziz

      I couldnt get the diamond to drop too. I did 4 rounds of pre event and the diamond didn’t drop. I actually did the event before unlocking the collection. I’m not sure if the diamond dropped at that time. It’s not in my inventory as well.

      • Mischki

        I managed to get it now.
        I got it from that patrol event in the northern Area, around Ewyn’s Retreat. Around there where the Legend Bounty spawns 🙂 I hope i could help you ^^
        Thats how it worked for me in the end.

        • DiePlz

          I just got mine through the escort event (it spawns somewhere around the Atholma Waypoint after the stormcaller echoes event), you escort the elders on their way to find Zohaqan. I got the chest just as we found Zohaqan’s cave thingy.

    • Jalen Dmello

      Its rng, i got it after 7 or 8 attempts

    • Ardenwolfe

      Had the same issue. I got the item when you escort the two riders before you get to the djinn. Got it at the end of the escort event.

  • Zaire Kelly

    Once you “obtain” a 32 slot bag you are able to craft more is INCORRECT(unless its a bug) or poor choice of words. Maybe Once you “equip” or “craft” a 32 slot bag it might work. I received the 32 slot ascended bag from this achieve and am still not able to craft any bags higher then i have already crafted before which for me is just the 24 slot bag. 🙁

    …also this site is lagging my pc waaaaaay down & I cant open a page to for more then 5 mins before i have to reboot my computer. This didn’t use to happen 2 years ago, you do something different?

  • Alot

    Nice that they found a reward of actual value to give with the episode, the first 3 maps with ascended trinkets were cool but they were getting a tad repetitive. One thing I’d always found amusing with obtaining prior 32 slot bags is that the cost of obtaining them is about the same (or more) then just buying an additional bag slot and shoving a 16 slot bag in it.

    • Jalen Dmello

      I had to just check if i was playing gw2 when i saw that achieve haha
      A very convenient item with hardly any grind and cost nothing to make 0_0.

    • Lockheart

      This is literally why I have max bag slots on my ranger.

  • BS

    So a free 32 Slot Bag is a good thing…. what could possibly go wrong? No auto slaving. no auto dispose and not showing on vendors . Great exactly what i need

    • Dylan Field

      Most of the items that sort to it (consumables and champion bags) aren’t vendorable anyway so it doesn’t really hurt, this behaving like an invisible bag. The few consumables that you CAN sell at a vendor are mostly ones you wouldn’t want to (unid items you either want to sell on the TP or open on a MF boosted chara for max profit, never salvage.). The no-vendor feature is really not an inconvenience.

      • Brett Leary

        It is when 20 something sigils that need to disappear go in there and I have to move them out to sell or delete them. It’s meant to be an equipment bag, not an invisible one.

        • RabbitUp

          Why is it not meant to be an invisible bag?

          Do you not have stuff in your inventory you don’t want to sell? All the weapons you don’t have equipped, other armour sets, food/util and other consumables, and stuff like toys, gizmos and tonics. Put all of them in the 32slot bag, and use your other bags for the stuff you want to salavage and sell.

  • theregicide

    the artificial diamond from the 28 slot bag there are to few info about it .many players didnt get it even after doing the elementals

    • the regicide

      i just got it Remember! it is RNG based

  • Alex Riedel

    So what do I do if I deleted the bow?

    • Burn Bicz, BURN

      Nothing, if you got it, it’s save in your collection

  • Ainseland

    thanks to Rubik for providing the locations of the collection items!!

  • KiLLi4N

    Artificial Diamond dropped for me as a final reward for doing the escort mission to Zohaqan. It’s RNG, I did this (and Stormcaller Echoes elementals) events a couple of time before I got it.

    • Endless Soul

      RNG? Ok good to know because I did a lot of these events and it hasn’t dropped yet.

  • TJ

    If I equip it now, and do the quest, will that item upgrade it self, or should I leave it in my invotory

    • Pierro

      In order to complete the collection you need to give the bag to Efi so you cannot equip it.
      If you equip the bag you can start the collection but you can’t end it

      • You should be able to keep the bag until you’ve done the rest of the collection tho..

        • Pierro

          yes, i used the bag but i had to take it off to complete the collection.

  • Mark Tyrone Chia

    Do I have to do anything to trigger the last step, What Comes Next, for the full 32 slot bag?
    Tried talking to Elfi but nothing happened.

  • Chemsik

    For the 24 slot, I found you do not actually need to complete the Tales of Elona Achievement first, just choose the first option, and then talk again and choose the second option.
