Other Locations[]

  • The Fatesworn DLC adds three Backpacks that can be obtained from a chest in the Boggart Fight Club secret area. See Pet Flute for details on how to access this area.


  • It is possible to obtain an unlimited amount of backpacks by exploiting a flaw in the NPC respawn system. If Illyn Doldran is murdered and the Fateless One sleeps for 4 in-game days he will respawn and his inventory will be reset. This allows the Fateless One to buy another backpack from him. If Illyn Doldran Drop Coins/Loots, He won't Respawn until The Fateless One Pick the loot, and You can't Pick it when surrounded by Guards turned Hostile, to counter this you can use Minor Phasewalk Potion right after you killed him, pick the loots then go to sleep 4 days and he will Respawn.
  • Be wary of using weapons or skills that produce any considerable amount of knockback. When doing the "Unlimited Backpack Exploit", Illyn Doldran can sometimes change his re-spawn positioning depending on what position his body died in when you kill him. Even worse is the possibility of him glitching through the game-world and disappearing completely - rendering his services as NPC, as well as the exploit, un-doable (the mini-map of Mel Senshir, as well as the game itself, fails to register him anymore if such a situation occurs, so please be careful when doing the aforementioned exploit). Make Sure to Save everytime before you kill Illyn Doldran.
