Laurels are an account-bound non-tradeable currency that players can use to purchase items from laurel merchants, located in each major city. Laurels can be obtained by completing daily and monthly achievements categories. The amount of laurels a player holds can be viewed by hovering over the '+' sign in the lower right of the inventory window, or from the Wallet tab in the Hero panel.
