How Magic Wardrobe Works
Hi, this will be a very crude but in-depth explanation about what the Magic Wardrobe is and how it works in the KR server.
This is also very long and tedious so if you’re not interested, press J key on your keyboard to skip to the next post on your dashboard.
First, in order to access the wardrobe, press the button in your inventory.
- Categories A
- Catgories B
- Categories C
- See Only Appearances I Own option
- List of Appearances
- Grey’d out item is not registered in your wardrobe, but exists in the game.
- Item in white means it is registered in your wardrobe
- You will only see things your current character can wear
- Hide My Current Avatar
- Purchase Selected Avatar (If it exists in the Item Mall)
- Register Appearance
- Apply Appearance
- Reset Search Bar
Clicking on the item in the preview will show you that item on the list. For example, I clicked on a weapon avatar, and now the list is showing me all weapon avatars that exist in the game for Ain. This also shows weapon item (not avatar). Yes you can wardrobe non-avatars equipments for their appearance, but you cannot apply appearance to non-avatars equipments.
Selecting the hair shows me that hair on the list of all the hair in the game. Notice how the entire list is grey? They are all the hairs that I did not register to the wardrobe; therefore I cannot apply them to other avatars. I have not registered the Idol Hat into my wardrobe yet. I will show you now how to register them into your wardrobe.
First, you have to take off the avatar/accessory you want to register. (There are other ways of registering, but it can get a little confusing so let me show you the most basic method first.)
Press Register Appearance button on the wardrobe. “Register appearance of the item. Select the item whose appearance you want to register from your inventory! You can only register items you can wear (i.e., not Eve-Only item)”.
You get a message on screen telling you to select item to register. Also notice how the mouse changed. Go to the inventory and select the item you want. I’m going to wardrobe the Idol Top avatar.
Now it’s showing you a warning saying that ONCE YOU REGISTER AN ITEM INTO THE WARDROBE, THE ITEM BECOMES A WARDROBED-ITEM THAT CANNOT BE TRADED OR SEALED. The game calls it a “Clothes Hanger Item” but what this essentially is that now the item has become a different type of item that’s forever account-bound and cannot be traded anymore. No, there isn’t a way to remove the item from the wardrobe list or remove its “Wardrobed-Item” status as of yet in the game.
Success! Notice how the item now has a yellow/gold border around it with a clothes hanger icon. That means that item is now in your wardrobe.
!!! IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE !!!
You can only apply appearance to items that have been wardrobed. What I mean is, you cannot apply appearance to items that is not on the wardrobe list. You can’t wear Ebalon Top and have it look like Rosso Top without having BOTH EBALON AND ROSSO TOP WARDROBED. Okay?
My Idol Top has been wardrobed. Welcome to the family. Now to demonstrate applying the appearance to your wardrobed items!
This is my Salvatore Rosso for Ain. Notice how all of them have been wardrobed already. The yellow line around the item!
When I select the Idol Top from the list, the preview will show me how it will look on my Ain with his current set up. It looks hideous but for the purpose of this demonstration, we’re going to go for this clashing color combo. Notice that I did not apply the appearance yet.
Press the Apply Appearance button and now the game will ask you to select a Wardobed-Item to apply the appearance to!
You can select the Rosso Top in the preview (it looks like Idol Top in the preview right now because I selected it) and it will change Rosso Top to Idol Top’s appearance. It tells me that it’s going ot change Salvatore Rosso Top (Ain) into Ain, the Beat Genius, Fantastic Wave Top (A)’s appearance.
Or you can select the wardrobed item in your inventory and it will change the wardrobed-item in your inventory into the Idol Top we just selected.
Tada! Now your Rosso Top looks like Idol Top. You also need better fashion sense cuz this is atrocious.
It’s more or less the same deal with accessories, so I won’t go into that.
Now this is where it can get a lil tiny bit tricky and screw you over, so pay attention
ALWAYS BE AWARE OF WHAT THE FUCK YOU ARE DOING WHEN YOU ARE USING THIS MAGICAL WARDROBE.
The danger and the joy of using magical wardrobe is that you can see every item that exists in the game, and this allows you to come up with the ultimate look of your dreams, spending hours upon hours just in the wardrobe preview screen, concocting the perfect look for your characters.
You can do this with the things you own, or the things you’ve never seen in the game but exists in the game somewhere, just not in your own inventory. The endless combinations… but this is where the danger is
Remember how I showed you how to register non-Wardrobed item into the wardrobe? You press the button and choose it from your inventory, right? Well there is another way… and that screwed me over in the past.
If you are wearing a not-yet Wardrobed Item and opened the magic wardrobe to look at some stuff… played around with combinations… and found the look you were looking for, and started applying appearances to your items…
If you attempt to apply appearance to non-Wardobed-Item, the game will ask you, Do you wish to continue because if you do this, we’ll skip the registering process for you and register this item + apply the appearance all in one go.
Yes this happens for both items you’re currently wearing (therefore shows up on the preview window) and the items in the inventory.
What happened with me is that.. Uh.. I had my Hamel Arctic Officer Cape (not wardrobed) on my Add.. was playing around with a look for a while… found what I was looking for… started applying appearance to everything I was…………..wearing… because I forgot I was wearing the cape and uhhh
Yeah I accidentally wardrobed the cape 8D
(but no regret cuz its beautiful)
So Always always always always always always be aware of what the fuck you are doing and never trust yourself; take them off if they’re something you never want to wardrobe when you want to lose yourself in the magical land of the wardrobe.
I have the full set of Elpheus accessories that I’m not so sure about wardrobing them yet so I am on high-alert everytime Im trying to play around with a look for my Ain to the point of being mentally stressed.
Now for a super long Q&A
Q. Can you unregister wardrobed item?
A. Read. I said no.
Q. What if I want to unregister them???
A. Well you should’ve thought about it before you wardrobed it then. You can destroy the item after you’ve wardrobed it but the item on the wardrobe list will not disappear. It’s there. Forever. So don’t start wardrobing every shit you have because it can get a little cluttered. That’s what the search bar and categories dropdown menu is for I guess.
Q. What if I want to look like I’m not wearing any accessory/one piece but I want to wear them for the stats?
A. That’s what “invisible accessories + one piece” is for. Yes they sell them in Item Mall in KR. They’re not cheap. They have stats like a normal cheapo accessory but you can wardrobe these and then apply their “invisible appearance” to other wardrobed items.
Q. If I wardrobe something on one character, can my other character in the same account use its appearance?
A. Yes, as long as it’s something they can wear, and not class-specific. For example, any character in my account on the KR Solace server can wear my Purple Fairy Wing.
Q. How can I wardrobe promotional avatars?
A. You can, but only if you have a special promotional avatar wardrobe ticket. These tickets, when right clicked, will allow you to click on the promo avatar from the list to “activate” them, aka, turn them from grey’d out item on the list into a white item that you can use later. Promotional avatars on the wardrobe will also show the hair as well, even though they never were an avatar in the game before. There are other types of wardrobe tickets, but they’re given out in events, and they all have varying restrictions and limitations. They’re pretty self explanatory though. I have my CBS wardrobed all of Electra’s promo avy from events couple of years ago, but only my Electra/CBS chars can use its appearance; my CN/CEm can’t.
Q. Is the applying of appearance only affect appearance and not the stat?
A. Well you know the “apply appearance” is pretty self explanatory… It will only change how the item you’re wearing will LOOK. You can wear full set of your GFriend Navillera and parade around in something prettier:
Q. How does registering equipment item (not avatar) work?
A. Same as other items except currently in KR server, if you wardrobe the equipment items, they don’t get yellow line around it… and are still tradeable. I crafted a grendized Ancient Noble Guardian pendulum and wardrobed it, but realized I can still seal+sell it later. You cannot apply appearance to equipments though. That pretty Eltrion weapon appearance can be applied to your weapon avatar, but you cannot apply it to, say, Heroic Weapon. by the way you cant wardrobe heroic equipments in the game for some reason;
Well there you go! I think I heard a rumor that NA/INT might be getting the magic wardrobe, and I hope it’s not some cruel April Fools joke because I CAN CONDONE ALL THE OTHER SHIT THAT NA/INT DOES TO YOU BUT NOTHAVING A WARDROBE IS A CRIME AGAINST THE GODS. A SIN.
What other shit can I condone? Uh… the fact that you guys need a seal to trade your rare avatars/accessories from Ice Burners… the fact that you guys can’t expand inventory with ED… or buy res stones from Ariel with ED… … man, seriously, what the fuck
Anyways, now you’ll know what they skipped out on if they ever decide to give you guys a “tweaked” version. Hey maybe they’ll even give you guys option to take the items out of the wardrobe and what not… honestly don’t see the harm in that as long as the item appearance is removed from the list as well…
