Hairpicks first made their debut at Troubled Waters as a vaalin-tipped narwhal horn hairstick strung with a chain dangling several silver coins that were fully unlocked and offered disarm and perception enhancives, as well as serving as both a high quality lockpick and a feature-altering hair accessory with three styles. Locked versions were sold off the shelf at Spitfire 2015 as a hair accessory only and during Duskruin Arena runs as locked lockpick versions. In years prior, Xerria was able to unlock these however they were not included in her list for 2018. Once unlocked, hairstyles can be added or customized by a willing merchant.
