How to Get and Upgrade the Backpack in Nightingale

Unless you start with your character background set to Easy, you’ll be without a backpack. At this point, you can only carry 50 lbs, depending on your background class. Collecting Stone Blocks, Wood Bundles, and food becomes a delicate balance as you try to avoid being encumbered.

Choosing Easy provides you with the NTTC backpack, increasing your carry capacity right at the beginning of the game. This is a huge advantage, allowing you to pick up more items from the Byway Realms, which eases Estate construction significantly.

However, you don’t have to wait long before being able to craft a better-quality Backpack. The Essence Trader in the Abeyance realm will have a Simple Pack plan available to purchase for 40 Essence Dust. You’ll also need the Simple Sewing Table and Simple Tanning Station recipes.

The Simple Pack is crafted at the Sewing Table and requires x2 Leather and x6 Plant Fibre. When complete, you’ll have a 20-score Simple Pack in your inventory. If your Back slot is empty, the pack will automatically be equipped. Otherwise, you need to equip it yourself.

You can continue to increase your carry weight by upgrading your Simple Pack at the Upgrade Bench. It requires the Simple Pack, along with x40 T1 Essence, but will boost your weight. This also upgrades the backpack to an uncommon item, unlocking the ability to apply infusions to it.

There are many different infusions, but the one you want is the Sylphic Infusion, which increases your maximum carrying capacity. You could also apply the Gossamer Infusion to other items, decreasing the infused item’s weight. Applying the Sylphic Infusion to more than just the backpack or applying multiple tiers to the same item will further increase the weight you can carry.

That’s how to upgrade the Backpack and get more carry weight in Nightingale. You want to be able to carry as much as you can, especially when mining rare resources or exploring new ruins. For more on Gear Score or how to increase Stamina, take a look at our guides vault.
