  • Any transmuted skins and sigil upgrades will be lost.
  • Any special ascended item (e.g. precursor or specialization weapon) will turn into antique weapons or illustrious armor with all their special properties lost.
  • GAscended stats corresponding to those of the FExotic Insignia / Inscription will result.
  • Does not work with trinkets or back items, as they are not armor (even though the trading post lists them under that category).
  • Works for any breathing apparatus, as they are considered armor.
