Perks are random affixes on Gear that grant various combat benefits and bonuses to hero abilities. Most gear will have at least one perk on it, with higher quality gear having up to three. Some perks are hero-specific, but only appear on Epic rarity gear or higher.

Many Gear items come with Status perks. These perks change the damage type of a piece of Gear and are used to build up and trigger Status Effects on enemies. Progress towards activating a Status Effect is shown by a colored meter over an enemy's health bar. There are both positively and negatively charged Status types. When enemies are penalized with a Status Effect, damaging them while using Status Gear of the opposite charge will inflict increased damage.
