What if I Wardrobe HOPE over Quip ?

Will I still have the good looks of HOPE and the "dial a build" capability of a Legendary pistol ? I have both pistols.
Thanks,
M. Conrad K

    Transmuting a piece of equipment only changes its appearance. The rarity of the item stays the same.

    For example: you could use a common (white) quality skin on a legendary weapon and your weapon will still have legendary status, but won't have any special visual effects because of the skin you used. Likewise, if you transmuted a common (white) weapon to use a legendary skin, it would still be a common quality item without any perks a legendary has, but with the special visual effects of the legendary skin chosen.

    If you transmute a legendary to use the skin of another legendary, it will use the special visual effects of whatever skin you transmuted it to. This means if you have 2 different types of legendary pistol, you can transmute one to use the same skin as the other to make a matching set, while still retaining the legendary status of the pistol you transmuted it to.

    Or short answer yes your exotic quip will look like hope but not be able to change stats since it is still only a exotic

    Quip = Legendary
    Hope = Legendary

    Hope skin on Quip -> transmuted Quip with Hope skin

    It would also work the other way around.

    Thought quip was the precursor wondering why the OP even asked the question now.
