Back item

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search
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. They can be transmuted in the wardrobe, although some have no default skin and they can accept jewels as well as universal upgrades, and Ascended versions can be infused.

Capes are a dyeable type of back item skins introduced with the December 3rd, 2019 game update. For other dyeable backpacks, see category Dyeable back items.

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 Exotic 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 Masterwork or Rare 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 Exotic back item.
