Hello people,
For all of you hood-loving thieves who lost their beloved hoods and don't want to start all over again, here is a way to recover it!

so here is the sollution:

1.) Make a new thief with hood.
2.) Have another character buy a cheap mask. NOTED: This mask needs to be white or blue name (This is important)
3.) Put said mask in bank.
4.) Log onto the new thief with hood.
5.) Now you can transmute the mask into hood.
6.) Put the new transmuted hood into bank
7.) Go into your current thief and then take out the transmuted hood.
8.) Now you can transmute the hood with any mask

IMPORTANT: The newly made hood will say it is soulbound, but you can still transfer it!

-thanks to megaheat for the better explanation ; )

I'm a bit confused,

I make a new thief play through tutorial

Put mask in Bank

Log onto main thief

Try to transmute and the hood is unusable with transmutation stones, and unavailable to bring into my inventory

Well that is weird, cause it worked for me. I also thought i couldn't take soulbound items off the bank but apparently he did it. I will try it again and try to be more detailed. Cause i did it in a rush.
try to be sure your mask is not soulbound. If it really doesn't work try transferring your mask to the new thief, transmuting it there and then transfer it to the bank maybe that will work.

Anyway i succeeded so it has to be possible or it was a bug! but if i have some time i'll try it again.

@minion
yeah i'm gonna buy some dies with gems to try to have white and black cause they are extremely rare i think

Found the solution, this is how you're suppose to do it:

1.) Make a new thief with hood.
2.) Have another character buy a cheap mask. NOTED: This mask needs to be white or blue name (This is important)
3.) Put said mask in bank.
4.) Log onto the new thief with hood.
5.) Now you can transmute the mask into hood.
6.) Put the new transmuted hood into bank
7.) Go into your current thief and then take out the transmuted hood.
8.) Now you can transmute the hood with any mask

3 masks were destroyed during this experiment.

I didn't realize the hood was so special. I don't even remember why I chose the headband, but this definitely helps, because I also want my Thief to look like Altair. Thanks!

I think its strange you choose what kind of headgear you want in the start, then everything from there is a mask, eyepeice, or corsair hat.... Really hoping some lvl 80 stuff are hood's.

But the hood is soulbound and after trasmutation it stays soulbound to the hooded thief, so i can't use it on the main one... am I doing something wrong?

Edit: my bad... it's soulbound, but usable by both now... weird!  It worked for me.  Thanks!!!

I can't get this to work for me at all.

Started new thief, level 2.
Have 10 basic transmutation stones in bank.
Bought white lvl 40 (and tried level 10 white) on main thief.
Put white mask in bank.
Got on new thief, tried to transmute mask into hood.

Item transmutation button is greyed out.

What am I doing wrong?

They have to be the same armor type to transmute.  You can't be a soldier class or a scholar class and use the hood from an adventurer class

at th ebeginning i had that too and the cause was that i didn't know how transmuting worked. You have to choose the characteristics you wnat to take from each item so you have to click on the appearance of the hood , stats of the other mask etc...
so maybe it's that.
Otherwise i wouldn't know why it's greyed out! it worked for me and just like tenofas said it was soulbound! but usable by both. very weird!

Is this an exploit or legit? I don't want to get banned.

it's supposed to be legit! and if it's an exploit it was never meant to be! i was just trying to figure out how i could transfer a hood and then poof it worked just like that while i was expecting it wouldn't.

Amazing! Thank you so much!

I heard that you can't transmute the same item multiple times. Am I going to have to make a new thief to get a 2nd hood? or can I keep xmuting and keep this skin.

1) Make thief
2) Choose hood

:P

It's one of the selections during character creation: you can pick a hood, a mask, or a headband.

It's one of the last, if not the last selection you make during your character creation.  There is one question that is Profession specific.  For thieves your are asked:

"In my line of work, it's important to understand the power of _____."

You then choose among Anonyminity(mask), Determination(headband), and Subterfuge(Hood).  This answer determines your starter hat.

Aha, success! Engi goggles on my thief. Thinking of getting the monocle too for a techno-pirate eyepatch look. :P

I tried the engineer backpack too, but it's a back slot item and the only one I've seen so far on my thief was a quest reward and Bind-On-Acquire, so the engi can't touch it (and vice versa). I'm really not sure where other back slot items come from, so it looks like that's out for now. :(

You can buy a guild backpack from the guild armorer [if your guild researched it], but I'm not sure if its soulbound or account bound.

Noticed those backpacks via GW2DB last night, but Guru went down before I could post back about it. I couldn't track down a guild armorer in game to check before I needed to hit the sack. (And I wasn't about to queue for hours for WvW just to find the one I knew about!) Though being Masterwork and a special purchase, my guess is they're probably character-bound ... and if they look anything similar, it may defeat the purpose!

Still, that's a project for this weekend. I can see WvW targets getting very confused when the pistol-toting, goggle-wearing, backpack-bearing engineer they're chasing suddenly stealths and backstabs them. :P
