Rarity

From Path of Exile Wiki
(Redirected from Magic)
Jump to navigation Jump to search

All monsters, strongboxes and most of the items come in one of four different rarities. The common rarity is normal, followed by magic, rare and unique. Higher rarity means things are higher valued but occur less frequently in the game.

Item rarity

Many types of dropped items roll a random rarity with normal items being the most common and unique items the least common. The specific order of operations is as follows:

  1. Upon randomly dropping, the item is checked if the item is unique.[1] If a dropped item is unique, it cannot be an item without rarity (e.g. currency, divination cards, scarabs). Therefore, excessively increased item rarity (typically difficult to achieve in regular gameplay) can negatively impact non-rarity item drops.[2]
  2. If the item is not unique, it determines an item category from [DropPool]. Certain categories have a default [[weight (mechanic)|weight) of 0, but individual items have individual weights that add to DropPool.
  3. If the selected item category can have a rarity, it then will roll for rare, then magic, and any remaining items will drop normal. Stats affecting Item Rarity change the chance of success at each step.[3] If the item cannot have a rarity, the roll from rare to normal is effectively ignored.
  4. After rarity is determined, the specific item's base type is selected.

Magic, rare, and unique items found by the player are initially unidentified and a Scroll of WisdomScroll of WisdomStack Size: 40Identifies an itemRight click this item then left click an unidentified item to apply it. must be used to discover their properties.

The number of sockets that can be found on an item is not affected by rarity; this instead relies on its item level.

Normal items (also called base items) are the "default" state of items without any explicit modifiers/affixes. Some specific base types have implicit modifiers.

A normal item can be upgraded into a magic item using an Orb of TransmutationOrb of TransmutationStack Size: 40Upgrades a normal item to a magic itemRight click this item then left click a normal item to apply it., or a rare item using an Orb of AlchemyOrb of AlchemyStack Size: 20Upgrades a normal item to a rare itemRight click this item then left click a normal item to apply it..

Magic items have the same base statistics as a normal item of the same type, but have magical modifiers on them given by affixes, up to one prefix and one suffix. The types of modifiers that can be found or added to an item depend on its item level, the base type and any additional flags on the item (such as shaped or elder).

A magic item with only either a prefix or suffix property can have a second property of the missing type added to it by using an Orb of AugmentationOrb of AugmentationStack Size: 30Augments a magic item with a new random modifierRight click this item then left click a magic item to apply it.

Flasks cannot be of rare rarity.

Jewels and Abyss Jewels can only have up to 4 explicit modifiers; however, the Corrupted Gaze Atlas Passive Skill can cause Abyss Jewels to drop corrupted with up to six explicit mods. Maps can have 8 mods as a result of corruption.

Unique

Requires Level 6, 29 IntAdds (1-2) to (3-4) Fire Damage to Spells and Attacks

Unique items have the same base stats as a normal item of the same type, but have specific names, unique artwork and set lists of modifiers instead of affixes. While the three preceding rarities are strictly better than the one before (e.g. rare items are always more powerful than magic items), this is not the case with unique items. They usually provide different and particular modifiers (sometimes thematically grouped) that can't be found on other items. Therefore they are considered to be more build-defining, granting effects that can be built around, but generally grant less pure stats than rare items.

Increased Item Rarity

Players can boost their chances of finding higher rarity items with Increased Rarity of Items Found. This does not affect items without rarity, such as currency. Combining item rarity modifiers with item quantity modifiers is sometimes called Magic Find (MF), referring to the equivalent stats in Diablo.

Rarity modifiers can apply to four multiplicative factors:

  • Area: Obtained from area modifiers such as map modifiers, or Eldritch Altars.
  • Partying: Grants increased bonuses based on the number of players in a party.
  • Monster: Monsters can have inherent item rarity bonuses, for example from their rarity, and can also receive them from mechanics like Tormented Spirits, Covetous Shrines, or Wildwood Wisps.

Player rarity modifiers do not affect items dropped from chests.[4]

Monster reward modifiers that convert loot into another type may be scaled by rarity modifiers, though scarab conversions do not appear to be.[5]

When in a party, only the stats from the player credited with the kill are applied - multiple characters attacking a monster will not stack their item rarity bonuses. If a minion gets a kill, the summoner's IIR is used, in addition to IIR from Item Rarity SupportItem Rarity SupportSupport

Monster rarity

The rarity of a monster grants various multipliers to its base stats. Among the stats affected are life, damage, granted experience and flask charges, item quantity and rarity, and a reduced chance to flee.[7]

Rarity also causes monsters to drop items with a higher item level. Magic mobs drop items one level higher than the area, while rare and unique enemies drop items two levels higher.

Magic monster modifiers

Increased statistics, and given one monster modifier. They appear in smaller groups. Magic monsters may also have Torment and/or Delirium modifiers.
