Rusty Hearts has introduced the different types of character customizationRusty Hearts has introduced the two ways of character customization, Form and Function.
Keep in mind that there is a lot of both weapons and gear in the game, not mention all of items you can collect to craft even more items, so this is just an overview of the system.
"Funtion" is the stat customizacion gived by the gear, there are 10 gear slots, ranging from helmets to body armor to boots and more, but these items do not change the look of your character, they change only their stats. Gear can change stats such as maximum HP and MP, Physical Damage, Magic Defense, Critical Hit chance, and a wide array of other elements to empower your character.
"Form, its the outward look of your character, or the cosmetic side of Rusty Hearts. Each character has 10 fashion slots that you will be able to fill with unique costume items. Head, shirt, pants, jacket, shoes, and more will give you the opportunity to really personalize the look of your Tude, Frantz, or Angela.
