# Modifier

(Redirected from Modifiers)
Not to be confused with stats.
For a list of item modifiers, see List of item mods.

Modifiers generally change various aspects of the entity they are affecting. Most commonly modifiers apply stats, however they can also apply buffs or grant skills and can often be found on items, monsters, strongboxes or areas.

A modifier should be seen as an instance of change applied to an entity. A basic modifier does nothing on its own, it is given the effect by the associated stats (and their values), buffs and skills.

## Mechanics overview

A modifier applies statistics, a buff or grants a skill to an entity. Modifiers are specific to items, monsters, strongboxes or areas.

Since not all statistics have a visible text, it is possible that some effects are granted by the modifier but are not visible to the player. On the wiki, some of these effects have a custom text specific to the wiki and are noted with (HIDDEN) in the description. In particular area and monster effects may be hidden from the player.

Modifiers can either be innately applied (as "implicit" modifier) to entities, be granted under specific conditions or randomly generated.

Some specific circumstances like the rarity of a monster, being touched or possessed by a Tormented Spirit, etc can also apply modifiers innately without them being randomly generated.

Modifier generation is gated by specific conditions that govern if and how likely a modifier is going to appear:

• Mod domain governs the type of entity the modifier is going to appear and may confer some specific rules (such as the number of affixes).
• Mod generation type determines how the modifier is generated, for example whether it's a prefix, suffix, corrupted or always applied (like on unique items)
• Mod level governs the minimum required level of the entity for a modifier to appear (i.e. the item level, monster level, area level), and for items only raises the item's level requirement to 80% of its value
• Mod group (mod family) prevents other modifiers from the same family to be randomly generated on the same entity[1]
• Tags in conjunction with weights are used to further restrict the types of modifiers that can appear and set the relative chance to be randomly applied. (for example, shaper and elder get a corresponding tag)

The values of stats include a minimum and maximum value, which is most commonly used on items - the actual value of the stat in the cases where minimum and maximum are not the same will be randomized within with equal chances, so for example a Stat with a minimum value of 1 and a maximum value of 3, can either be 1, 2 or 3 at 1/3 chance for each value.

If a buff is specified, Modifiers also include a value for the buff, but unlike for Stats it is not randomized and fixed.

If a skill is specified, the specified skill (at the specified level) will be granted to the relevant entity. The modifier does not include values for the skill other then the level as they're defined by the skill itself. Often this is found on items, where they grant skills, such as The Whispering Ice

## Terminology

In general modifiers are referred to as such, however there are many special cases of modifiers that correspond to specific sets and Modifiers#Conditions :

Term Explanation
Implicit Any innate modifier of an entity. Most commonly used in reference to items.

On items, this is the effect above the line separating modifiers. They can also be replaced via certain effects such as corruption.

Explicit Any generated modifier of an entity that has a non-normal rarity (i.e. magic, rare or unique).

May be randomized (such as prefixes, suffixes) or fixed (e.x. on unique items).

Prefix Refers to the "Prefix" generation type.

On magic entities, these will have a name visible before the name of the entity itself. For example, ViciousVicious
Prefix
(85-109)% increased Physical Damage
on a Broad SwordOne Handed Sword
Physical Damage: 15-21
Critical Strike Chance: 5.00%
Attacks per Second: 1.45
Weapon Range: 11
Requires Level 15, 30 Str, 30 Dex40% increased Global Accuracy Rating
will show as Vicious Broad Sword.

Suffix Refers to the "Suffix" generation type.

On magic entities, these will have a name visible after the name of the entity itself. For example, of the Lynxof the Lynx
Suffix
+(13-17) to Dexterity
on a Broad SwordOne Handed Sword
Physical Damage: 15-21
Critical Strike Chance: 5.00%
Attacks per Second: 1.45
Weapon Range: 11
Requires Level 15, 30 Str, 30 Dex40% increased Global Accuracy Rating

## Types of modifiers

### Implicit modifiers

Implicit modifiers always spawn on entities before the addition or change of additional modifiers (for example by changing the rarity).

On monsters, implicit modifiers can be very commonly found. For example, some monsters are granted damage conversion which converts their inherent damage to that of another element. However, on unique monsters and bosses implicits are most notable - for example most bosses are granted a boost to their item rarity and item quantity as well as other bonuses such as on Atziri.

On items, visible implicit modifiers are most commonly found on:

Shields and body armour also commonly have a hidden movement speed penalty modifier.

Unlike the implicit modifiers on monsters, the implicit modifiers on equipment can be by altered in various ways:

• Blessed OrbStack Size: 20Randomises the numeric values of the implicit modifiers of an itemRight click this item then left click another item to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
- rerolls the range of the stats found on the implicit modifiers.
• Vaal OrbStack Size: 10Corrupts an item, modifying it unpredictablyRight click this item then left click an item to corrupt it. Corrupted items cannot be modified again.
Shift click to unstack.
- Corruption can add or replace an implicit modifier depending on the item type.
• Eldritch currency - Eldritch Ichors and Eldritch Embers will replace the item's implicit modifier with an Eater of Worlds implicit modifier or a Searing Exarch implicit modifier respectively, while retaining any Eldritch modifiers of the other type.
• Using a Resonator with a Gilded FossilStack Size: 10Item is overvalued by vendorsPlace in a Resonator to influence item crafting.
Shift click to unstack.
will add an Item sells for much more to vendors implicit to the item. This does not overwrite or affect the item's current implicit modifier.
• Certain Harvest crafting options allows you to set a new implicit modifier on jewels.
• Synthesised items have up to three different random implicit modifiers, including on items that normally don't have an implicit modifier. You can transform an item into a synthesised item via Harvest crafting.

Certain unique items also have special interactions with implicits:

• Greatwolf TalismanTalisman Tier: 4<Two random talisman implicit modifiers>CorruptedThe wolf greeted the king,
In the light of the harvest moon.
The wolf offered the strength of the wild,
And the king paid for it in blood.
- has two randomly chosen talisman implicits.
• String of Servitude
Heavy Belt
<(1-2) Random corrupted implicit modifiers>Implicit Modifier magnitudes are tripled
Level Requirement reduced by 100 (Hidden)
CorruptedFor the Vaal, the relationship between slave and master was as intimate and volatile as that of lovers.
- triples the effect values of implicit modifiers.

### Enchantments

Enchantments are similar to implicit modifiers, but are granted to the item by specific means. Enchantments have their own mod slot on items and do not use the implicit mod slot.[3] Most items can have up to one enchantment at a time. Any level of rarity, even unique items, can be enchanted. Mirrored cannot receive an enchantment.[4] Corrupted items are only able to receive Labyrinth Enchantments using a Tainted BlessingStack Size: 10Can be placed in the Divine Font to allow enchantment of corrupted gloves, boots, helmets or belts.
Shift click to unstack.
. They are always fixed values, so Blessed OrbStack Size: 20Randomises the numeric values of the implicit modifiers of an itemRight click this item then left click another item to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
have no effect on them.[5] Applying an enchantment on an already enchanted item replaces the old enchantment with the new one. Enchantments can be removed using the Crafting Bench recipe. This does not include maps, they can only be enchanted once.

• Using an Instilling OrbStack Size: 10Adds an enchantment to a utility flask that will cause it to be used when certain conditions are met. Replaces any existing enchantment.Right click this item then left click a flask to apply it.
Shift click to unstack.
on a flask adds an enchantment which causes the flask to be automatically used when a certain condition is met.
• Labyrinth Enchantments are obtained from the Divine Font at the end of the Labyrinth. Gloves, Boots, and Helmets can receive Labyrinth enchantments. Belts can also be given enchantments in the Eternal Labyrinth of Potential.
• Rings, Amulets, and certain Blight league uniques can be Anointed with Oils to give it an enchantment.
• Cluster Jewels have two (for legacy bases) or three enchantments: One that determines what stat the small passives gives (which determine what mods the jewel can roll), one that determines how many passive skills are in the cluster, and one that determines how many jewel sockets it has (for Large and Medium Cluster Jewels).
• Certain Harvest crafting options allows you to add enchantments to weapons, body armours, maps and flasks. Read harvest crafting for details.
• Weapons and body armour with enchantments are possible rewards in Grand Heists. The enchantments can be added by using Tailoring OrbStack Size: 20Adds or replaces an enchantment on a body armour. This may reforge the body armour's sockets.Right click this item then left click on the item you wish to modify.
Shift click to unstack.
or Tempering OrbStack Size: 20Adds or replaces an enchantment on a weapon. This may reforge the weapon's sockets.Right click this item then left click on the item you wish to modify.
Shift click to unstack.
which drops from Heist league.

### Scourge mods

If an item becomes Scourged using the Blood Crucible, it gains two Scourge implicit modifiers, one positive and one negative. Scourge mods are separate from implicit mods and enchantments. Blood Crucible upgrades can cause an item to gain additional Scourge implicit mods.

### Explicit modifiers

Explicit modifiers are generally dynamically generated by changing the rarity of the entity or by other modification.

The number of affixes given by rarity depends on the rarity class:

• Magic - random modifiers based on conditions: (0 to 1) prefix and (0 to 1) suffix
• Rare - random modifiers based on conditions: (1 to 3) prefixes and (1 to 3) suffixes (but always at least 3) with the exception of jewels which can only have (1 to 2) prefixes and (1 to 2) suffixes
• Unique - non-random, fixed modifiers based on the unique entity

Monsters have different means of receiving modifiers:

• Magic packs of monsters spawn with one Monster modifier
• Rare monsters spawn with 2-4 Monster modifiers
• Normal and Magic monsters may be touched by a Tormented Spirit, giving a Torment 'Touch' modifier
• Rare and Unique monsters may be possessed by a Tormented Spirit, giving a Torment 'Possession' modifier
• Rare monsters trapped in an Essence can have an 'Essence' modifier
• Rare Beasts, which are found in Einhar missions, can have one or two Bestiary mods.
• Magic and Rare monsters receive a Delirium modifier during a Delirium encounter; they are removed when the encounter is over
• Picking up a Talisman gives monsters a Talisman modifier (Talisman league only as well as specific Delve node that contains a Talisman-possessed monster)

On items, modifiers can be changed by spending currency:

• Areas created with Map items receive the modifiers on the map they were created with
• Areas created through a Map device may receive mods from placing map fragments in the device
• The current league(s) or other server-wide effects (from races for example)
• With Tempest active in the area, the area may receive a tempest modifier

## Conditions

Modifiers usually include conditions which are used to determine how they appear. These are generally used to govern the creation of explicit modifiers on entities.

### Mod Level

The required level of the relevant entity. For example, this can be the required item level or a monster level.

However, there are cases where this is not respected: in particular this is the case for any mods that are directly given to other entities, such as implicit mods including enchantments or monsters with innate mods.

The mod level is also a factor in calculating the level requirement of items; raising the level requirement up to 80% requirement of the mod (with the requirement rounded down to the nearest whole integer). In particular this is the case for mods on unique items and for enchantments

For example, Seven-League Step
Rawhide Boots
Evasion: (13-18)50% increased Movement Speed
Level Requirement reduced by 100 (Hidden)
"Death can be outrun with these, but beware!
In running from death, you may forget to live."
- Icius Perandus, Antiquities Collection, Item 202
normally has a level requirement of 1, however putting the 0.5% of Damage Leeched as Life if you've Killed Recently enchantment from the 3rd labyrinth on it, will increase the level requirement to $\color [rgb]{0.6392156862745098,0.5529411764705883,0.42745098039215684}\left\lceil {66\times 0.8}\right\rceil =52$.

### Group/family

Each modifier belongs to one or more groups (or families). These restrict which modifiers may appear on an object together.[1] Only one modifier from any given group may appear on an object; in other words, all modifiers belonging to a group are mutually exclusive with one another.

For example, on items this is used a lot for the prefix and suffix generation to create those group of modifiers that modify only a single or two stats. Together with the item level requirements, this creates the "tiered" system of modifiers.

### Tags

Mods use the internal Tag system to determine on which entities they can appear and how likely they are to appear on entities. Tags are classified as spawn weight tag and mod tag:

### Spawn weight tag

Spawn weight tag primarily functions like this:

• Find the Tags on the basetype.
• Match the Tags against the mod's list of tags.
• For the found mods get the associated spawn weighting of the tag.
• If the spawn weighting is zero, discard the mod, otherwise use it.
• If multiple tags apply, the left-most tags are most important, where the right most tags are the least.

So, for example:

• Glorious PlateArmour: (776-892)Requires Level 68, 191 Str has the tags str_armour • top_tier_base_item_type • body_armour • armour • default.
• Assassin's GarbEvasion: (737-811)Requires Level 68, 183 Dex3% increased Movement Speed has the tags dex_armour • top_tier_base_item_type • body_armour • armour • default.
• The mod ImpregnableImpregnable
Prefix
(92-100)% increased Armour
has the spawn weights .
• Result for Glorious PlateArmour: (776-892)Requires Level 68, 191 Str: The mod can spawn because it has the tag str_armour and a positive spawn weight.
• Result for Assassin's GarbEvasion: (737-811)Requires Level 68, 183 Dex3% increased Movement Speed: The mod can not spawn because only default matches and its spawn weight is 0.

### Mod tag

Mods are tagged with mod tag such as "attack", "caster", "elemental", "damage", "curse", "gem", "cold", "fire" and "lightning" etc. Some mod did not have any tag. Those tag can interact with Catalyst and Fossil, Harvest crafting and several enchantments.

Currency such as Exalted OrbStack Size: 10Augments a rare item with a new random modifierRight click this item then left click a rare item to apply it. Rare items can have up to six random modifiers.
Shift click to unstack.
, as well as beastcrafting recipes "add affix, remove affix", interact with item which has metamod of Spellcraft - Cannot roll Attack Modifiers (Suffix) or of Weaponcraft - Cannot roll Caster Modifiers (Suffix). Which Exalted Orb would not add mod to the item with attack mod tag (of Spellcraftof Spellcraft
Suffix
Cannot roll Attack Modifiers
) or caster mod tag (of Weaponcraftof Weaponcraft
Suffix
Cannot roll Caster Modifiers
). However, essence[6], Awakener's OrbStack Size: 10Destroys an item, applying its influence to another of the same item class
The second item is reforged as a rare item with both influence types and new modifiers
Right click this item, then left click the item you wish to take the influence from, then left click an item of the same item class you wish to apply it to.
Shift click to unstack.
[7] ignore aforementioned metamod.

The Catalyst will increase the value of mod that matching the catalyst used. For example, Imbued CatalystStack Size: 10Adds quality that enhances Caster modifiers on a ring, amulet or belt
Replaces other quality types
Right click this item then left click a ring, amulet or belt to apply it. Has greater effect on lower-rarity jewellery. The maximum quality is 20%.
Shift click to unstack.
will add quality to the item which the quality will increase the numeric value of caster mod. It also increase the likelihood to add caster mod to the item if using the currency, and consume the quality depends on which currency is used.

Fossil multiply the spawn weight of mod that matching the fossil, For example, Corroded FossilStack Size: 20More Physical Ailment or Chaos Ailment modifiers
No Elemental modifiers
Place in a Resonator to influence item crafting.
Shift click to unstack.
multiply the spawn weight of mod that have "physical and Ailment" or "Chaos and Ailment" tags by 10, and multiply the spawn weight of the mod with "elemental" tag by 0.

Some enchantments, such as (5–8)% increased maximum Life on body armor, will affect the mod with "life" mod tag.

These changes have negligible impacts to the odds of various modifiers appearing on rare items naturally, but may have impacts to the results of certain crafting methods. A list of all modifiers and their associated tags can be found here.
• As a result of the above changes, several fossil descriptions have changed slightly.
3.11.0
