An image showing the old transmutation system.

Transmutation was a system that allowed players to customize the appearance of their equipment, both weapons and armor. Using Transmutation Charges, players could combine two items of the same type, creating a single item with the appearance of one item and the statistics of the other. Transmuted items had to be of the same weapon/armor type.


  1. Open the Hero Panel, click on the wardrobe tab and then click on the equipment item you wish to transmute.
  2. A separate panel on the left will open, displaying all of the unlocked skins from the Account Wardrobe that fit into the selected slot.
  3. When selecting a skin, a pop-up will appear showing how many Transmutation Crystals are needed to make the desired change.
  4. After clicking "Accept," the equipment item will have the previously equipped stats and display the new, transmuted skin.
