An Unidentified Legendary Dagger (Outdated)

Identifications are ways to increase the effectiveness of weapons and armor. Only Unique, Rare, Legendary, Fabled, Mythic, and Set Items can be Identified. Items may have up to 27 identification bonuses. There are a few exceptions to this, such as Bob's Mythic Weapons or the Infused Hive Weapons, where each weapon will have set bonuses when bought. When items are first found they are usually unidentified, as shown in the picture. However, the item can become identified in exchange for emeralds when it is taken to an Identifier. Doing so will reveal the item's name, requirements, identification bonuses, and slots.

The possible identification bonuses are listed below.

Loot Bonus and Quality[edit | edit source]

Loot bonus increases the quantity of items found from mob drops and loot chests. However, it works slightly differently for chest loot, for balance reasons (as explained by Jpresent): "The first 20% loot bonus give 20% bonus as it always did. The second 20% loot bonus, however, gives only 15% actual loot bonus. The third 20% adds only 10% loot bonus, the fourth only 5%. This makes the first 80% loot bonus give only 50% actual loot bonus. After that every 5% loot bonus give 1% extra actual loot."

Loot quality increases the chance of getting rarer items from mob drops and loot chests, and reduces the chance of getting more common (Normal- or Unique-tier) items. It does not affect other loot, like Potions, Emeralds and Powders. Loot quality bonuses over 20% provide diminishing returns from loot chests in the same way regular loot bonus does.

Thorns and Reflection[edit | edit source]

Both thorns and reflection deal damage back to enemies that hit you (thorns for melee attacks, reflection for projectiles and spells). If activated, a mob's attack is reflected back at them for 150% damage, while an enemy player only takes 50% damage. The percent value of the ID only represents the chance that it is activated upon any given hit.

Mana and Life Steal[edit | edit source]

The chance of getting mana/health depends on your attack speed.

  • super fast - 5,8%
  • very fast - 8,1%
  • fast - 10%
  • normal - 12,2%
  • slow - 16,6%
  • very slow - 30,1%
  • super slow - 49%

Spell Cost[edit | edit source]

Spell cost and raw spell cost are groups of four "sub-identifications" each (one for each spell, encoded as 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th). These are displayed based on the class being played, which might cause some confusion in the cases of weapons; a Spear that reduces the cost of the Bash spell by 1, if viewed by a Mage, will instead show that it reduces the cost of the Mage's Heal (despite the fact that Mages cannot use Spears) because Bash and Heal are both the 1st spell for their respective classes.

The mana cost to cast a spell is calculated in the following steps:

  • Base cost. This is determined by the spell, the class and the combat level (see a given class' specific page for these values).
  • Intelligence bonus. The base cost is modified based on your total Intelligence stat. This bonus ranges from 0% cost reduction at 0 Intelligence to a maximum of 80.5% reduction at 149 Intelligence.
  • The cost is then modified further by your spell cost IDs.
    • Raw spell cost. Raw bonuses and penalties are calculated first, and are relatively straightforward. A -1 bonus will reduce the total cost by 1, a +2 penalty will increase the cost by 2, and so on.
    • Percent spell cost. Finally, percent spell cost bonuses or penalties are applied. Any bonus, even -1%, will reduce the cost by at least 1, while any penalty will increase it by at least 1. Beyond that, the percent thresholds required to modify the final mana cost by a whole point are dependant on the result of the previous step, with higher total costs having lower per-point thresholds. A percent spell cost bonus of -89% is currently the maximum required to reduce the cost of any spell to 1.

The absolute minimum final cost to cast any spell is 1 mana (except in the cases of certain Major IDs; see below).

Also, note that when casting the same spell several times in quick succession, the cost will increase each time, and even with extreme spell cost bonuses (such as when teleporting with Warp) the increasing mana cost will eventually become unsustainable.

Major Identifications[edit | edit source]

Major IDs are a new type of unique Identifications introduced in the 1.19 Silent Expanse Update. Major IDs are only present on specific items, are not randomly rolled, and provide a wide range of effects that cannot be acquired elsewhere. Because of this, some of these IDs are only available with certain Classes or builds. The effects of these IDs do not stack when using multiple items with the same Major ID.
