[edit] Notes

  • All dye (color) shown reflects each profession's default dye settings.
  • The in-game icon for Obscuring Veil is the same as for Eagle Eye Goggles.
  • You can obtain copies of any starting item by creating a new character.
    • These can be transferred to another character using a two-step process and two Transmutation Stones: first, transfer the skin to a white or blue item and then you can transfer to the older character. The intermediate item might state that it is "soulbound," but you will still be able to use it.
    • The same process works in theory for town clothing, but in practice you would have to spend gems to obtain non-soulbound pieces for the first step, as the only piece of town clothing currently obtainable outside the gem store is Iron's Tailpipe Bandana, and it can be obtained only once per character.
