Instructions: Step 5

Almost all wearable gear in the game that appears visibly on a character can be Transmuted. That is to say that an option exists to Change Appearance that applies the appearance (but not stats) of one item to another.


Aspects of Transmutation[edit]

  • The items (source and destination) must closely match in listed types and required class.
  • The items do not have to physically resemble each other: A Neck item that looks like a cape can be used to change the appearance of one that looks like a necklace.
  • The relative level required of the items does not matter: You can use an item that you aren't high enough level to use yet as the appearance source for one that you can.
  • There is a charge in Astral Diamonds based on the value of the destination item, approximately 50k at the top end.
    • There is no fee if the source item is flagged "Free Appearance Change" such as Sunite, Savage and Tiefling weapons.
  • The change is permanent, though you can change the appearance of the same item multiple times through this process.
  • The source item and all its slotted Enchantments are destroyed in the process.
  • Dye carries over as follows:
Target Item Source Item Resulting Item
Dyed No dye Dyed like Target Item
No dye Dyed Dyed like Source Item
Dyed Dyed Dyed like Source Item

Instructions[edit]

  1. Before doing an important transmutation, it may be prudent to test the transmutation on the preview server. Of course, there may be differences between the preview server and the live servers.
  2. Right click on the item to be transmuted (the one you are keeping the stats from) to open the item drop down menu.
  3. Select "Change Appearance" from the item drop down menu to open the "Change Item Appearance" window.
  4. Place the item to be used as a source in the Appearance slot in the box on the right side of the "Change Item Appearance" window.
    WARNING: Remember that this source item will be destroyed at the end of the transmutation process.
  5. After reviewing the image of the changes on your character in the large window, click "Change" to open the final warning prompt. Be warned that the preview image my not be completely accurate.
  6. Click "OK" on the final warning prompt to finalize the change.

Free Appearance Change Items[edit]

Some items with intentionally inferior stats have been released with the sole intention of being used as the appearance source in the transmutation process. As of Patch_NW.5.20130923b.6 these are being marked with the type Free Appearance Change and do not have a cost when used to apply their appearance. Note however that this trait does not apply to the newly transmuted item: Only the original Free Appearance Change item has the discount.

Transmutable Items With Unique Looks[edit]

Thanks to an unusual look or being a different weapon type then is normal for the class many pieces of equipment are useful source items in the change appearance process. The following is a partial list. Most of these items are bind on equip, so many will show up on the Auction House at various times.

Note that when particularly expensive items are involved it should be carefully considered whether it would be better to actually use them rather then consume them via the transmutation process: If you regret the new look of your top-end armor it will be very costly to set things back.

Non Transmutatable Items With Unique Looks[edit]

While not transmutable in any useful way, the following are so unique in appearance that they deserve special note. The issue with them is that they have no class restrictions, and transmutation is set up to only allow an item that matches other items class and slot restriction to work. Since these items have no class restriction, they can only be transmuted into other items without class restrictions, and currently none of the useful lvl60 gear is designed like that.

All Classes[edit]

Name Type Source Appearance
[Boots of the Fire Giant] Feet ?? Reddish feet of rough stone - same appearance as a Flame Spiker
