Wow, I am glad I read this thread! I did not know that the only hood we could get was the starter one. Will have to keep that in mind while leveling the thief.

I'm not sure it will...it would be interesting to try, but that's an awfult lot of time and in-game expense to test out a theory...:) Either way good luck, and if it does work, please let us know!

On one hand... this feels wrong.  Especially since the resulting item in question still says 'Soulbound.'

But on the other hand, HOODIE!

I hope they just let us get access to them via gems or some legit way so I stop feeling like I'm breaking the game.
It's okay to enjoy crap if you're willing to admit it's crap.
Every patch is like ArenaNet walking out onto the stage of the International Don't Kitten Up Championship, and then proceeding to shiv itself in the stomach 30 times while screaming "IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD! IT'S FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!"

You may have missed a step.

Just follow the OP's instructions exactly.

Well apparently someone in this thread http://www.guildwars...ce-armor-skins/ did it so I would assume it is possible unless a patch made it otherwise.

In the thread, scroll down to Ravrohan's posts.  In one he posts a pic, and then in another he says it's a mix of vigil and prioiry and states he used the same method as the one posted here to get the hood.

Hope that helps.

Ah, good thing I kept the hood.

Still wondering why almost all medium armors are ranger-like coats and why there are very few hoods.

Does anyone know if this method works with level 80 Karma gear?
I would try it myself but I currently don't have the necessary funds.
Working on it though.

So I tried this for my Asura elementalist today, and had a weird result... I tried with both the fire and air themed "eyes" they start with. The item transmuted fine, and I was able to equip it, but it does not show up in game(and yes, I checked and unchecked the show/hide headgear option lol). Oddly, it does show up in the character selection screen. If I preview the item, it doesn't show up either.

:(

couldn't it be a loading issue? i'm having some problems that when i equip a new piece of armor it doesn't appear right away and it can take up to a minute before i see it, as well in preview as on my character.

It's not. The starting elementalist headgear just doesn't show in-game when transmuted - I've had this exact same problem with the Storm Eye, and I've read others who have had the same issue with the other starting Ele headgear. It seems to just be a strange bug.

I just did it today. It doesn't matter if the mask is level 10 and your new thief is level 2. You must not forget to click on the item you wish to keep along with its stats.

1.double click transmute stone
2.drag hood in one box then drag the mask on the other box
3.click the hood, the mask will disappear
4.on the bottom square you will see stats,click the one you would like to keep. I guess it doesn't matter since you're going to transmute it again anyways.
5.now the greyed out transmute button will be active and you're all set.
6.After the transmute it will say soulbound but put it in the bank anyways.
7.go to your main character and repeat steps 1-5

In my case my main is level 40 so my mask has an upgrade slot with rune in it, you have to click that too for the transmute to work.

Have fun!

I wish! :D It's been 48 hours and is still invisible in-game. Even tried it on my human mesmer to see if it was a race thing.

Ah. Well, at least I know it's not just me which is slightly comforting.

Alright, I've learned a ton. I didn't even know transmute stones existed before reading this thread. I am going to see if I can do this procedure tonight with a level 40ish item. Keeping fingers crossed. If I am successful (doubtful), I'll post here.

One question, will the hood go away the next time I find an item I would rather wear or do I just do the transmute thing again to retain the hood with the new item's stats?

thanks man this works great. i bought a level 79 blue hat and had my new thief transmute it. I dont believe this is an exploit, it's only a skin, its  not economy breaking  or anything like that.

Doesn't work and has not worked for a very long time.  I've tried it multiple times across various characters and thief mules.

Soulbound means soulbound.  And the hoods are soulbound on character creation.

Technically, your screenshot means nothing.  You're using runes of infiltration, which gives +% damage to low health enemies, plus precision.  For all we know, you could be a thief with a backstab/heartseeker build posting a screenshot of your hood you transmuted all the way to 80.

Aside from that, I have tried multiple times and had it not work.  However, just today I decided to give it one more go, and this time it worked.  Odd.  It probably has something to do with the character's race, since the last couple failed attempts the characters were different races, and none of them worked.

So yeah, I'm an engineer with a hood now.

You'll have to keep transmuting it if you want to keep it while leveling. The good thing is that regular transmute stones are pretty plentiful while leveling (as long as you do 100% completion of a zone or sometimes you can get them from daily achievements). Even if you don't have the stones now, you'll have them when you level to 80, then you can make your choice. I'm an 80 with about 70 regular transmute stones and 10 fine (80 only) transmute stones.
I was able to get the hood today by making another thief character the same race as mine and transferring it to the bank. i then deleted that new thief character. Even though the hood says "Soulbound" I was able to use it on my main thief.
