Not all MMO games are equal and not all of the equipment in them is either. The first part of this series will take you through some of the very basics that the equipment in WAR have to offer.

    What is Equipment?

    Just like in any other MMORPG game, the term “equipment” in Warhammer Online encompasses all of the potions, powders, weapons, armor, trinkets, items, collectibles, shields and more that can be found in the game that gamers can use or carry on their character or sell them on to other players or vendors when they are finished with them.

    Equipment Slots

    There are so many different equipment slots that gamers have access to when they create a toon in Warhammer Online. These slots are:

    • boots; pants; belts; body; shirt; gloves; shoulders; helms; back; ranged weapon; right hand; left hand; banner; tabard, and 4 different accessory slots.

    Equipment Binding

    Now, there are some items in the game that will bind to the player when they are picked up or used. Depending on how the item binds to you, or not at all, will also depend on how you can sell or trade it to other players. Those items that are Bind on Pickup, or BoP, you will not be able to trade or sell to other players, only to vendors when you are done with them. Yet, the items that are Bind on Equip, or BoE, you will be able to freely sell or trade as long as you have not equipped it yet. Now, those items that are for quests, influence rewards, or renown items are all BoP and you cannot trade, sell, or give them to another player in the game.

    Item Decay

    One of the very best parts about Warhammer Online is that items you have do not decay or suffer damage when they are used. This is awesome, as it cuts down on your trips into towns to repair and your cash flow when you take major damage in a fight.

    In the next part of this series, we will go through the basics of the weapons that you can find in Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.
