Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning backpack vendors guide

Nothing kills a two-hour looting buzz like having to stop in the middle of a dungeon and meticulously manage your inventory. Thankfully, there are several vendors throughout the Faelands who will happily support your hoarding addiction with extra backpacks, and we know where to find them. We’ve tracked down every one of these elusive sellers so that you can focus less on all the useless crap you’re carrying and more on all the side quests you’ve accepted!

If you don’t have any points invested in the mercantile skill, your first backpack will cost 7,500 gold, and each successive one will cost slightly more than the last. Each backpack increases your maximum inventory size by 10.

Backpack #1

You can find this bag in Gohart, the game’s first town. Enter The Corner Shop and speak to Rikka Egest behind the counter.

Backpack #2

Ysa isn’t immediately accessible. You can enter only after accepting the “Old Friends New Foes” main quest. Thankfully, that quest occurs fairly early on in the game. Once inside Ysa, go to Askers Alley and speak to Riona Helt, who stands in the center of the room.

Backpack #3

Adessa is at the southernmost point of Detyre, in Apotyre. Find Domus Politica on the west side of the city’s first plaza, and find Senecer Macit inside. If he’s not wandering the main area of Domus Politica, he’ll be sleeping in his bed upstairs.  Just look for the shop symbol on your map.

Backpack #4

Rathir is the massive city in the northeastern part of the Plains of Erathell. Enter and head for the Upper City. Once there, find Scholia Arcana and enter its Main Hall. Wil Donall can be found there, and he’s selling a backpack.

Backpack #5

Mel Senshir is the first city you’ll come across in Klurikon. However, you can’t actually cross the water to reach it until you progress far enough in the main questline. Once there, look for Illyn Doldran. He’s near the center of the area, and it’s hard to miss him. 

Backpack #6 (Teeth of Naros DLC)

The Teeth of Naros DLC features an additional backpack for purchase. Once you have access to the city of Idylla, go to the Idylla market and speak to Ampelio. She sells a backpack for between 5000-6000 gold.

    Thanks for this! It's just what I was looking for!

    I'm not sure if I should get this game...still on the fence between Skyrim and KoA :-\ (PS3)... someone please help!!

    get both, but if you have to wait on one, I'd go with KoA. From what I gather, its not as buggy as Skyrim on PS3, and its also from a new studio, so they need it to be successful. It should also keep you busy enough until Skyrim goes on sale at some point.

    Thanks, I definitely appreciate it :) I need an RPG I can slam through whenever Dark Souls gets too stressful haha - which btw is definitely NOT as difficult as it's made out to be, and I totally hated Demon's Souls (Dark Souls' bonfire system is leaps better than starting the beginning of the stage!) Oh god and Mass Effect 3 comes out next month...

    lol was about to reply but by this time you must have already got both. Enjoy :)

    Haha - I guess the joke is on you (or me!) - I still haven't bought either :\ I don't have a ton of time for gaming in big chunks so I'm still waiting on Skyrim and a price drop on the Legendary Edition. At this rate I'll get a PS4 by the time PS5 rolls out.

    "Nothing kills a two-hour looting buzz like having to stop in the middle of a dungeon and meticulously manage your inventory." so true

    For those of you that don't know, Illyn Doldran in Mel Senshir, there is a glitch for infinite backpacks. Buy the backpack off of him, kill him, (Loot gold and other items if possible.), pay fine to guards so you don't go to jail, sleep for 4 days, go back and he will respawn, do the same thing. :)
