Items and Equipment
VIII. Items and Equipment
Loot the corpses of those you defeat. Open the treasure chest that awaits those who conquer a Public Quest. Receive rewards from the completion of personal quests. Take your chances inside dungeons to recover artifacts spoken about in legend. Throughout your journeys in Warhammer Online, you will earn new armor, weapons, accessories, and Trophies in various ways. The items and equipment you obtain will both empower you and allow you to further personalize your character.
Place your mouse cursor over corpses and chests you have participated in defeating and earning, and right-click it to pick up any loot inside. A loot menu will pop up on which you can select the items you wish to take, or you can simply select LOOT ALL to take everything.
When in parties and warbands, you can also set your loot roll options to roll automatically for only the items you really want-this is especially useful when participating in fast-paced open RvR or Scenarios. To open the loot roll options menu, press the "L" key, or click on the "Parties and Warbands" icon at the top of your screen, and click on the "Auto Roll" tab. In this tab, you can adjust your loot roll options for items such as usable equipment, currency, and potions, their rarity, and how you want to roll on each.
Looted items will go into your backpack, which is accessible by clicking the backpack icon on your quickbar or by pressing your 'B' key.
To equip any items you pick up, simply click on the character icon or press your 'P' key to open your character window, then drag the item you wish to equip from your backpack to the appropriate slot on your character pane (i.e., helm to head slot). You can also right-click on an item in your backpack to equip it. Please note that you will be unable to change equipment while engaged in combat.
