Back item

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki

Back

Back items are a category of equipment and type of gear, sharing characteristics of both trinkets and armor. Grouped with trinket slots in the Hero Panel, they provide the lowest magnitude of attribute bonuses out of all equipment types, only 65% of an equivalent (same level and rarity) boot, glove, or shoulder armor, the next-lowest equipment types, or 12% of an equivalent two-handed weapon. However, unlike trinkets, back items can be damaged or broken and must be repaired. They can be transmuted in the wardrobe, although some have no default skin and they can accept jewels as well as universal upgrades, and GAscended versions can be infused.

Acquisition[edit]

Unlike most other equipment types, back items are not widely available as loot or on the Trading Post. However, back items may be acquired from various vendors, as personal story and Living World story rewards, from using the Mystic Forge, and through crafting disciplines (starting at level 1).

Loot[edit]

Excluding PvP Reward Track back items and FExotic rarity back items obtained from dungeons, all back items obtained as loot can be sold on the Trading Post.

Dungeons

All dungeon have two types of back items, both types having predefined prefixes, that can be obtained as drop from explorable mode: a DMasterwork or ERare rarity back item with the level of the back item will be the same as the level the same as the dungeon's path or a level 80 FExotic back item.

PvP Reward Tracks

  • A Level 65 ERare back item featuring the current Zodiac animal can be obtained from various types of Lucky Envelopes.
