The Inventory is where the character's items are stored and also where to change equipment. It is accessed either by pressing the hotkey (Default "B"), or by activating the menu bar (press 'ESC') and then clicking on the backpack icon:
The inventory has changed dramatically from the alpha versions. If you look at the image to the right you technically have "multiple" inventories, based on your region. When you open up your inventory it will default to your current region. Items not gathered in your current region will have there names grayed out and their effects/rarities canceled out almost entirely (This also applies to the item Leftovers).
Each of the 6 inventory tabs holds different kinds of items.
- Ingredients: Crafting ingredients.
Left-click or Right-click on a valid piece of equipment (the character meets the class requirement) and it will automatically be equipped in the appropriate equipment slot (if there is already something previously equipped it will be swapped out).
