Equipment is defined either as item that go into the equipment pane of the inventory display, or as items that can be equipped on the character. Luckily, the definitions overlap perfectly.
Item categories that go into the weapon slot:
Other equipment, generally one slot each:
- Cloak or Backpack
- Dofus or Trophy (1 slot per different item)
- Ring (2 slots)
Using a two-handed weapon disables the shield slot.
