Looks pretty good to me, just a couple minor notes.

You say "detpack" three times in this sentence. Maybe change the second one to
"it" and the third to "the only one he has".

It's not usually good to start a sentence with "being". Maybe something like
"Since it is" or "Because it is".

In general I find your writing style fun to read and it makes me want to play
TFC or whatever class you are talking about. That's always A Good Thing.
