Bound or binding refers to the game mechanic which constrains an item to the player's Account, or to a specific Character (i.e. Soulbound).

  • Account Bound - These items can only be used on the player's account. They can be passed between characters via the Account vault. These items cannot be traded on the Trading Post.
  • Soulbound - A soulbound item can only be used by the character it's bound to. This binding cannot be removed at a later date, even if the character is deleted.
    • Soulbound on Use - Equipping the item on a character will switch the item's property to Soulbound.
    • Soulbound on Acquire - The item will be Soulbound when placed in a character's inventory.
