Q: How much variety is there in the available equipment?
A: There are over 1,500 sets of armor, each consisting of four to eight pieces of equipment.
Q: Apart from armor and weapons, what other kinds of items are available?
A: Tons! There are consumable items, furniture and building accessories, non-combat “social” clothing and jewelry, gems, and much more.
Q: Are there any restrictions on what you can equip on your character?
A: Yes. Your feats determine what type of armor and equipment you can wear and wield. Your class also defines these limitations, as not all feats are available to all classes.
Q: Is there item decay?
A: No. Items do not decay over time.
Q: Can you make your own equipment?
A: Yes. There are several crafting options to create your own sets of armor and weapons and other equipment. Player-crafted equipment is also the only equipment that has slots for gems that increase the equipment’s power.
Q: Do item statistics matter? Isn’t combat all about player skill?
A: While the mechanics of combat is very much all about player skill, the numbers are generated by the type of equipment you are using. So while you can still hit with a twig or a mighty sword; when you make contact, the sword’s going to do more damage.
Q: Are there any race restrictions on equipment?
A: No. The restrictions are based on the feats you have available to you. While different equipment from different areas will have different looks and functionality, your race will not determine whether or not you can equip it.
