Novelties are a type of Wardrobe unlock for toys and items for social interaction.


Location of the Novelty icon on the GUI.
  • One novelty of each type can be slotted in the Equipment tab of the Hero panel, under the Novelties section.

  • Novelties suffer the same restrictions as the original gizmos.
    • Some novelties cannot be used under the effect of a transformation.
    • Some novelties cannot be used in WvW.
    • Most novelties cannot be activated while in combat, but some of them, like kites, can.

    • Chairs cannot be used within locations where mounts are not enabled or are restricted.
