Rare Items - What exactly are they?

Post by Zanman777 on Sat Sep 28, 2013 12:54 am

I'm not sure what rare items are exactly, and I can't find the answer in the forum. I think they are like magic items, but instead of having only 1 prefix and 1 suffix, rare items can have several random prefixes and several random suffixes. Is this true? Or are rare items more like uniques, where each rare item has a preset group of "attributes"?

If rare items are like uniques, where can I find a list of the rare items there are in the game?

Rare items are items with light yellow color and modifiers/stats that can spawn on them are completely random... In case you don't know: items with dark yellow color are unique items, and items with orange color are crafted items (to newbie they might seem the same, but they aren't)... There's no list for rare and crafed items because, as I already said, modifiers/stats that can spawn on those items are completely random (unlike unique items that always has the same modifiers/stats and there is a complete list of them in the docs )... Salut

Also, if you play on a laptop and have the screen tilted a bit, the colors of unique and rare items look nearly identical.

Thanks Smile So if the modifiers are random just like magic items, what's the difference between rare and magic items?

Rare has a yellow name =D (And more affixes, also at least in cLoD highest "tiers" of some affixes could only spawn on Magic items)

Rares are great at the start of the game. I often find them far superior to low-tiered uniques until Terror difficulty.

Actually in terror you start to get sacred and t6 rares,don't you think they are actually better than those lower tiered?

^ You won't be getting those kinda rares until later Terror. If you play the game as it is, you should be around 50-60 when you get to Terror. The items you use for comparison (neither of which are t6 or sacred btw) have affixes that make the level go up.
