The Piggy Bank is a portable, personal storage item that is purchased from the Merchant for Gold Coin. Like other storage items (eg. Chests), it contains 40 slots (4 rows of 10) that can be used to store anything — however it has the unique ability (along with the Safe and Defender's Forge) to be carried while it contains items. Its contents also travel with your character if you enter a different world. Coins and items stored within it are safe from other players, and will not be dropped on death.

It requires only 2 horizontal tile spaces for placement, but must be placed on a Work Bench, Table, or Platforms (unlike the Safe, which can be placed on blocks, and occupies 2x2 tiles). Desktop Version The Piggy Bank inventory can also be accessed via the Money Trough, which summons a temporary floating version of the Piggy Bank.

Differences from Chests[edit | edit source]

The Piggy Bank (as well as the Safe and Defender's Forge) functions similarly to other storage items, but with some important differences:

  • Each Piggy Bank contains the same items (when accessed by the same character), no matter where they are placed within the world. Purchasing multiple Piggy Banks will not give you more space, but will offer more points of access to your Piggy Bank contents.
  • The Piggy Bank can be picked up even when it contains items. This makes it a viable way to expand your character's Inventory slots.
  • The Piggy Bank's contents are saved with your character data, instead of the World data. You keep its contents with you from world to world, and from server to server.
  • The Piggy Bank's contents are exclusive to each player, so other players will not have access to items you store there. This makes it useful for item security on PvP servers where stealing is allowed.
  • Multiple players can use the same Piggy Bank without having access to each other's items. Each player will only see their own items when accessing the same Piggy Bank.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Items stored in a Piggy Bank, Safe, or Defender's Forge will not be lost as a result of death, even if the Piggy Bank or Safe is in your character's inventory at the time.
  • The Safe has the same properties as the Piggy Bank, except that it can be placed directly on the floor and has its own slots for storing another set of 40 items.
  • Desktop Version Money stored in the Piggy Bank, Safe, and Defender's Forge are available when making purchases from NPCs. The total money stored in the two is visible as Savings to the right of an NPC shop window.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Keep a Safe inside the Piggy Bank (and vice-versa) for even more personal storage.
  • Since the Piggy Bank is much cheaper, it's better suited to leaving several permanently placed, scattered in important locations such as outposts.
