Equipment Prefixes

Prefixes are special characteristics that can be found on all types of equipment. Some prefixes can only occur on certain types of equipment.


Quality has an effect on the stats of the equipment, where higher quality equipment generally has higher stats (and lower interference and burden). Higher quality equipment Item Worlds have more difficult monsters and likewise reward more EXP.

Name PXP At 0 Notes
Crude 103-138
Fair ~139-187
Average ~188-227
  • Never has a prefix.
Superior ~228-282
  • Guaranteed a suffix.
  • Assigned the player's level as soon as it drops.
Exquisite ~277-303
Magnificent ~304-348
  • Base drop chance = 0.0005%
Legendary ~348-399
  • 85-100% of maximum stats (varies on each stat).
  • Guaranteed maximum number of attribute bonuses (actual number depending on type).
  • Base drop chance = 0.00025%
Peerless 368-421
  • Guaranteed all stats maxed (125% of Superior's maximum).
    • Essentially a Legendary with 100% on every stat.
  • Guaranteed a prefix.
  • Base drop chance = 0.0001%

It should be noted that quality tier is rolled first and then the stats are rolled in that tier's range, so all stats are guaranteed a certain minimum, according to that particular prefix. This fixes a situation that may have occurred on previous versions: in fact, until 0.82 stats generated prefixes, which were based on the average value of all the stats relative to their possible maximum. Therefore it was possible to have certain qualities with very low stats.

One way to quickly approximate the quality of a particular equipment piece is to observe its PXP at level 0. Quality can then be approximated by:

Quality ≅ (PXP0 - 100) / 250

Weapon Prefixes


  • Have no interference or burden.
  • Do Void damage, which is significantly better than crushing/slashing/piercing on most boss-class or higher monsters.
  • Gives Void Strike effect (same as Elemental Strike except the damage type is void)
    • At level 10 potency such weapons gain a random Elemental Strike (in addition to the existing Void Strike)
  • Still affects monsters having their physical defenses reduced (i.e. Penetrated Armor).


  • Functions the same as weapons affected by infusions through The Forge
    • Gives Elemental Damage Bonus for one of the six magic elements
    • Gives the weapon an Elemental Strike effect (additional damage in that element)
      • At level 10 potency such weapons' damage type changes to Void and gains Void Strike in addition to the existing Elemental Strike
    • Using infusions will give an additional Elemental Strike effect, unless the infusion is the same as the weapon's elemental type

Equipment with the quality grade of "Superior" or higher have a chance to drop with a prefix.

Quality Chance
Superior 10%
Exquisite 25%
Magnificent 50%
Legendary 100%
Peerless 100%

If a prefix roll is successful:

  • Weapons have different chances for each type of elemental prefix:
Prefix Chance
Ethereal 20%
Fiery 15%
Arctic 15%
Tempestuous 15%
Shocking 15%
Hallowed 10%
Demonic 10%
  • Armors have different chances depending on the amount of special prefixes involved, but usually: Special prefixes ≤ Zircon/Onyx < Ruby/Cobalt/Jade/Amber.
