  • Any stored items and pickups unpacked from Moving Box will remain identical to what was originally packed; pills, cards, and runes will stay the same, Sticky Nickel Sticky Nickels will remain stuck to the floor, and chests will have the same contents as they would if they had been opened immediately.
