As briefly mentioned before, locking items is the only way to make sure your items are safe from being accidentally dismantled or sold. Locking an item prohibits it from being traded, changed, dismantled, destroyed, or used as a material. A locked item can be Honed. However, you need to have Locked Enhancements turned on from your settings.

In order to lock an item from your inventory, follow these steps:

  • Hover over the item of choice
  • Press Ctrl + Right Click (PC) / Right Trigger + Left Stick Button (Controller)
  • Select Lock
