Talismans are equipped, non-visible, items that allow players to increase specific stats; serving the purpose of more traditional MMO-style armor. Each deck of abilities a player creates will be able to store specific sets of talismans for easy storage and gear-changes from one build to another. Talismas are available from vendors, missions, loot drops, and via Assembly
There are seven talisman slots divided into three rows: head, major, and minor. These are viewable on the Gear Management option on the character screen; weapons are also viewable here. Each talisman has a unique shape and the Major and Minor talismans have the same icon color.
Each talisman type increases health, healing, or attack rating, in different combinations. These combinations correspond to the three player roles: Tank (damage absorption), DPS (Damage Per Second), or Heal (your ability to heal others as well as yourself). Tank talismans grant a large increase to Health and a small increase to Attack Rating. DPS talismans grant a large increase to Attack Rating and a small increase to Health. Healing talismans grant a moderate increase to Heal rating and a slightly larger increase to Health.
Players receive a starting set of talismans when they choose their first weapon during the first quest line. These talismans are all DPS and are common quality, white border.
Common and uncommon forms of the talismans exist.
