The way that inventory stacks is rather interesting and has a learning curve to it. Instead of having the ability to sort stacks of items out in your inventory, you have to go to a whole other location in the game to do it. This makes it confusing and a troublesome task, to say the least. However, once you do get a hang of it, the process comes naturally. 

To learn how to split stacks of items in Nightingale, you first need to have a lot of patience. Then, you need to know that the best way to split the stacks is by adding your items to another inventory menu, which means you have to track a location with an inventory down. Why do you have to do that? The reason is because that is the only way you can split the quantity of your stacks. Outside of a separate inventory menu, you cannot split stacks of items inside your personal inventory, i.e. your backpack.

Separate inventory menus that you can use to split your stacks of items are different chests or a campfire, though the latter is not recommended. A campfire only allows you to put certain items into its menu because it is, after all, a campfire. On the other hand, chests are made to store all types of items.

As for how you can actually split the stacks of items, when you click on an item in your backpack’s inventory menu while having the chest inventory menu open, you can split your stack. You can do this by specifically pressing “Shift” on your keyboard while dragging the stack of items to the chest inventory menu from your backpack inventory menu to open up the quantity splitting menu for your stacks of items. There, you can choose your desired quantity for the stack you want to put inside the chest and you’re done splitting the stack, finally!

This is honestly one of the easiest ways to split your stacks of items in the game because Nightingale does not make it easier than that. The only other way to split your stacks of items is by setting down a makeshift “home” to manage and adjust your inventory. This is not an ideal solution by any means, but it is what it is. Other than that, you can clean out your inventory if you absolutely have to by turning your throwaway items or less-worthy items by turning them into Essence Dust
