Unidentified gear is a common drop in all areas of the game for level 80 characters, and comes in three rarities:
Double-clicking on a piece of unidentified gear will convert it into a random piece of equipment (for example, Iron Dagger) of the same rarity as the unidentified gear, with a small chance of higher rarity. Salvaging it will provide crafting materials. See the above items for details.
- Unidentified gear replaces most generic gear drops common to all enemies, chests and containers from all regions, such as Iron weapons and Rogue armor, when rolling from level 80 drop tables.
- Unlike other similar containers like Champion bags, it does not scale to the current character's level, and can only produce the common drops from level 80 tables it replaces, with a few exceptions. Note that doesn't mean level 80 gear, since level 80 drop tables include gear at least as low as level 76.
- It does not replace region-exclusive drops like regional weapon sets. Those are always obtained directly.
- Reclaimed weapons, Elonian weapons, named Sunspear weapons, and named Spearmarshal armor pieces are exceptions to the two previous points. They are regional drops that can be found both as standalone drops and from unidentified gear.
- Originally, Unidentified Gear only dropped within the Path of Fire expansion and Living World Season 4 maps. As of the March 26, 2019 game update, the majority of loot dropped from events, mobs, and chests have been changed to unidentified gear for level 80 characters to reduce inventory clutter. This update also stopped magic find from affecting these items.
