Loot Bag

Loot Bags can be randomly dropped by mobs or the player, can be found in various dungeon chests or generated with the Loot Recycler. Loot Bags can contain from one up to five stacks of randomly chosen items and can be opened by right-clicking. When opened, the player can collect these items.

There are five tiers of normal loot bags: "Common", "Uncommon", "Rare", "Epic" and "Legendary". The rarer a loot bag is, the better are the items it contains. For example, the Common Lootbag is the most often dropped loot bag, so it will contain the most basic items.

There are some special loot bags, which will only be dropped under certain conditions or by certain mobs. These are meant as secrets and cannot be found neither in the creative tabs nor in the interface of Not Enough Items by default.

Every loot bag has the subtitle "Ooh, what could be inside?", which will turn into the message "What's inside is not as interesting as not knowing." when opened.


The five normal loot bags can be crafted into each other. Putting four lower tier loot bags will result in the next tier loot bag. The other way around, placing one upper tier loot bag in the crafting grid gives four loot bags of the previous tier.

Drop Chances[edit]

The loot bags have the following drop chances:

Loot Bag From Monster From Passive Mobs From Player From Boss
Common Lootbag 10% 5% 10% 20%
Uncommon Lootbag 5% 2.5% 5% 10%
Rare Lootbag 2.5% 1.5% 1.5% 5%
Epic Lootbag 1.5% 1% 1% 2.5%
Legendary Lootbag 1% 0.5% 0.5% 1.5%


When the player opens a loot bag the loot bag will remain in the player's inventory until the last item is removed, so no items will be lost. If the player takes all items except for one, the loot bag can still be crafted with several others to the next tier. Using this strategy, the player will gain more items than he should. This can be disabled in the config file.
