Equipment slots
Each character has a total of seven equipment slots: Main hand and off-hand for weapons and focus items/shields and five armor slots (head, chest, hands, legs and feet). Single handed weapons can only be equipped in the main hand and shields only in the offhand. There is no dual weapon wielding (or dual shield wielding) in Guild Wars.
 Changing equipment
 Customized equipment
Equipment can be customized for a 20% damage enhancement by bringing a weapon to a weaponsmith; however, customized weapons can only be used by the character they are customized for, or that character's heroes. Some equipment is automatically customized (for example armor and some weapons obtained from collectors, or armor from armorers).
