Gear Score is a numerical value for the strength of equipment. The Character window (default key: P) shows a player's total Gear Score, which is the sum of all gear score values from the equipment the player has currently equipped. Certain dungeons have minimum total Gear Score requirements to enter.
- Each piece of equipment has a base Gear Score score value which is displayed in an equipment's tooltip below its icon. Higher rarity items typically have higher Gear Score values.
- Enchanting an equipment provides bonus Gear Score, which shows in parentheses next to the base score value. Higher enchantments grants greater bonuses.
- Off-hand items, such as Shields and Codices have Gear Score values, but will not contribute to total Gear Score.
- If two weapons are equipped, only the weapon with the higher Gear Score value will count towards the total Gear Score.
