How To Add Traits?

Traits Guide - Best Traits Build & All Traits List

Click The △ Button To View & Add Traits

Check the Enchanted Loom device and then place the cursor on the Gear to which you want to add the Traits, and lastly press the △ button (F for PC version) to view and add Traits.

Only The Discovered Traits Can Be Added

Only traits that you have discovered can be attached to Gears. If you do not have strong Traits, it is recommended that you collect them first. These items can be found through challenge rewards or can be found in outlaw encampments.

Collect The Trait Requirements

Check the materials needed for the traits you want to add. These trait materials are mostly can be obtained from Beasts.

The Same Traits Can Be Added To Different Gears

Once the traits are added to your desired gears, they will never disappear. Traits can be added even after they are overwritten with other traits. As long as you have the necessary materials needed, you can freely replace these traits as many times as you want.

Assigned Traits Will Not Be Removed

Once Traits are attached to a Gear, it is not possible to remove it, since there are no traits that produced negative impact this will not be a problem. It is also not possible to remove the assigned Traits from the Gears that had them since the beginning.

Different Traits Levels Can Be Attached To Different Rarities

Gear RarityTrait Slot Level
Legendary
Extraordinary
Superb

The Gear rarity determines the Traits slot level, and only the Traits under that slot level can be attached, meaning that even if you have Trait Slot Level III, it is still useless unless you also have the Legendary Gear.
