Soulbound is a binding mechanic to designate an item which cannot be placed on the Trading Post, mailed, or placed in the inventory of another character. They can be placed in your account vault.

Some items are always Soulbound:

Items may also become Soulbound in several ways:


Soulbound items deposited in the bank cannot be used by other characters in crafting recipes.
  • If you stash soulbound items in your bank and delete the character they are bound to, even if you recreate an identical character with the same name you will not be able to utilize the soulbound items.


  • During the first BWE, items were known to lose their Soulbound status, usually by being repaired by an armor vendor after breaking.
