An item is "bound" if it is restricted to the player's account, or to a specific character, and cannot be traded on the Trading Post or mailed to another account.

The following types of binding exist:

  • Account Bound — These items can only be used on the player's account. They can be passed between characters via the Account vault.
  • Soulbound — A soulbound item can only be used by the character it's bound to. This binding cannot be removed at a later date, even if the character is deleted.
  • Non-bound — if no information is displayed about the item being bound, such item has no restrictions.

The following descriptions can be found in the items' tooltips

  • "Soulbound on Use" — Equipping the item on a character will switch the item's property to Soulbound.
  • "Soulbound on Acquire" — The item will be Soulbound when placed in a character's inventory.
