The backpack inventory section has 28 slots available for items; the equipped inventory section has 11 separate spaces for clothes and weapons and other adornments.
All together this gives you a grand total of 39 slots to use.
Whenever you pick up or purchase an item, it will be added to your inventory, into the backpack.
In the game window, your inventory is represented by the backpack icon. Left-click on it to access your inventory.
The backpack section of your inventory displays all of the items that you are carrying at the time.
Large items will take up one inventory slot each. Small items such as money can all be stored in just one slot, in which case a number at the top left of the slot indicates how many of that item are currently grouped together.
You can arrange the items in the inventory by clicking and holding down the "action" button over the item and dragging it to the spot in your inventory you want to move it to. The action button is the left mouse button on a multiple button mouse and the single button on a mouse with only one button.
When you want to interact with the items in your inventory, move the mouse pointer over the item, then click on the left mouse button if you are using a multiple button mouse or click the single button on a mouse with one button, to perform the default action associated with the item. Most of the time the default action will be the 'Use' command.
Once you have done this, you then need to click on the target item, either in your inventory or in the game window.
To view other actions that can be performed with an item, move the mouse pointer over the item and click on the right mouse button. This will display a menu with all the actions you can perform with that item. The default action is the first one in the menu.
Once the menu is displayed, you can then select other commands such as “Drop”, “Examine" etc.
If you choose to drop an item, it will appear at your feet. As long as the item is tradeable, it will become visible to other players after a minute of remaining on the floor.
When you hover over a combat item within your inventory, details on the item class, any bonuses it offers, what speed it is (for weapons), and whether or not it is a members item will be shown in this overlay.
Main article: Worn Equipment
Your character has separate slots for each type of weapon or clothing. To view what you have equipped, click the helmet icon to open the worn inventory menu.
Armour and weapons are an important aspect of the game. The weaponry you are wielding can often make the difference between winning and losing a battle. To wield a weapon, go to your inventory screen and click on the item that you wish to wield. If the item can be worn it will then move to your equipment screen.
Separate slots show what you are carrying on your person at any time. To remove an item, left click on it or right-click on the slot you wish to change and select 'Remove' from the list. Along the bottom of the worn inventory menu are the 'Show Equipment Stats' button, the 'Show Items Kept on Death' button, the 'Toolbelt' button and the 'Avatar Customisation' button.
