Bind on Use

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

An item is Bind on Use (BoU) if it becomes Soulbound when first used. This is used for objects that are used but do not need to be equipped. A warning appears before a player uses a Bind on Use item for the first time, asking if the player is sure they want to do so.

Almost all mounts, companions and recipes are effectively bind-on-use: using one converts it from an item into an ability (an entry in a spellbook tab or profession window), and abilities cannot be traded.
