In Divinity: Original Sin 2, you’ll occasionally come across better weapons and equipment that you’ll want to deck your characters out with. First off, it’s important to note that you won’t be allowed to equip quest-related items. One of the early story quests in the game will give you possession of an amulet that can raise some of your defenses, but you won’t be able to equip it as long as the quest is still active.
To equip your regular gear, simply pull up your inventory menu with the ‘I’ key, and you’ll see the different types of gear that you have on your character at the moment. On the right side of the screen, you’ll see all of the gear in your inventory. To equip new gear on your character, click on the party member that you want to equip the stuff on, and then drag your selected piece of gear over to the appropriate equipment slot. Gloves will go to the gloves slot, and rings will go to the accessory slot, and so on and so forth. Once you’ve done that, your previously equipped gear will be sent back to your character’s inventory. And that’s it, you’ve successfully managed to equip new gear for your characters.
