As most of you already know, I have several “Vanilla” WoW characters. I’ve also already admitted that yes, I am a hoarder. Aedaria, my main, is the character this affects the most. Her bags and bank are always so close to being full that it’s just not funny.
Does Void Storage help? Well, it did, before they changed how transmogging worked. Now that you don’t have to have the item to use the appearance, she has room for stuff in there, but not much to put in it. She keeps sentimental items, like the Zandalar Madcap’s Tunic and the full Undead Slayer’s Blessed Armor set. She also has a Windslicer Boomerang (depreciated) since Rogues don’t use throwing knives in item form, Winterfin Patch of Honor, and Cookie’s Tenderizer.
She keeps some old dungeon specific stuff too, like Violet Signet of the Master Assassin, Signet Ring of the Bronze Dragonflight, Drakefire Amulet, Master Dragonslayer’s Ring, and Onyxia Scale Cloak. She also throws recent gear in there just in case she feels like her last “upgrade” isn’t working.
Let’s talk about Aedaria’s personal bank. Before we start, I’m gonna say this right up front. Yes, I know there are things I should get rid of. In fact, this post may be the impetus for me to do that very thing. In the meantime, lemme tell you what Aedaria keeps hidden away with the bankers of Azeroth. (and Outland and Draenor)
Food. Firstly and most importantly, food. A Rogue is NOTHING without buff food, recovery food, and now there’s a new kind of food, Crispy Bacon! As of right this minute, she has 411 Festival Dumplings on hand. I buy those up like hotcakes every year because they are AMAZING for getting back health out of combat. Right now she’s using Azshari Salad (169 on hand), and Barracuda Mrglgagh (86 on hand). I do the bacon world quest every time I see it, (or them if we’re lucky), so she has 114 Crispy Bacon in the bank too. She tends to be really resilient, so extending the food buff for an hour is quite handy.
She has all kinds of crafting mats there as well. Even a few leftovers from MoP. She’s a Tailor/Engineer, so there’s cloth, leather, ore, and then the basic mats like thread and BoS, etc. She has herbs for cooking – which boggles my mind, but whatevs. Speaking of cooking, Aedaria has every recipe (except Moongraze Tenderloin because BLIZZARD TOOK IT FROM ME), so she has quite a few food mats.
Her bank is also fully stocked with holiday items, things that are labeled “unique” (therefore disqualifying them from void storage), and every fishing pole known to forsaken. As a Rogue, it’s also her duty to keep her Crate of Kidnapped Puppies locked in the vault – I mean, she’s gotta stay in character, right?
I guess we gotta talk about her inventory now, right? *shudder* Here’s the worst part. Hearthstones. THREE, plus she keeps the Admiral’s Compass as well. Getting to a main city fast is a good thing, and using a Garrison is an easy way to do it. She also has the Cloak of Coordination for the same reason. Treasure maps for all five Legion regions, various engineering gadgets, plus food, food and more food.
Rogues have an additional space taken up with the Uncrowned Insignia, which they use to get in and out of their class hall. Rogues can also pick up goodies there via Marin Noggenfogger, and I can’t use them up faster than I get new ones. Bombs, throwing daggers, boots, thistle tea, battle potions… *sigh*
She’s also leveled in Archaeology, so there’s all kinds of keystones littered about, and then the odds and ends like Battle Standard of Coordination, Secretive Whistle, Stormforged Grapple Launcher, Jeeves (can we make that a toy already?), Beginner’s Guide to Dimensional Rifting, the ever-useless Intra-Dalaran Wormhole Generator, Brazier of Awakening, and Repurposed Fel Focuser.
So now you know my dirty secrets. Should I hire a professional Rogue Organizer?
