Hairpick

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

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. Once unlocked, hairstyles can be added or customized by a willing merchant. Unlocking these items has sometimes been on Xerria's list.
