Quality

Magical Property

An armor's magical property is another indication of approximately how good an item is. There are currently 5 levels of magic that an item may be. From worst to best, these are Cursed, Unlucky, Lucky, Blessed, Enchanted. Generally, Cursed items have at least one negative stat and often times more than one. As with armor Quality, the magical property is not an absolute indication of item value/usefulness. Magical property is the second adjective in an armor's name.

It may be possible for an item to NOT have a magical property. [citation needed]


Armor Types

The different types of armors have certain restrictions as to how high stats will drop on them. Leather will usually have lower stats than pristine of the same quality.[citation needed] Leather armor can increase resistances as much as plate or pristine. Armor type is the second to last word of an armor's name, while the last is always the slot of the item.

Resist

Resist come in four types: General, Fire, Lightning, Poison. These four allow you to absorb, or negate, damage taken by mobs or players in PvP, thus reducing the total damage taken. A guide is available for more information: Armor Resistance Guide


Set bonuses

(PC) When you equip armor of all the same type in every slot, every piece gains a bonus in all stats on the armor. You will know this is in effect when you see a pulsing cyan square around the armor icon's border. Pets and weapons do not gain this bonus. The math for the bonus is 1+ an extra bonus point every 4 levels starting at level 5. So at 1=2, 5=7, 8=10, 9=12, etc.

(mobile?) Some armor wield Set bonuses for having a specific amount of that armor type. set bonuses include resistance, extra damage resistance, and other stats such as increased tower HP and attack.

Upgrading Items

First it is worth looking at the strength of the items (i.e. torn, worn, sturdy, etc.) to get a basic idea of how upgrade-able it is, and how long you will probably want to keep it. Upgrading is not a cheap process, so spend wisely. There are two methods to upgrade items:

Method 1: 1. Go into the lockbox 2. Click on Hero Info or X 3. Click on an item 4. click A 5. Hold down the right trigger to invest in it (cost is shown on lower right side), and press A to confirm

Method 2: 1. Store items to be upgraded in your lockbox (sell all of your junk items to avoid clutter) 2. Talk to the shopkeeper 3. Click on Items, on the left side of the menu 4. Choose the item you wish to upgrade 5. Hold down the right trigger to upgrade (cost is shown on lower right side), and press A to confirm

Items will usually have multiple levels to be upgraded (shown at the bottom of the item picture), so you can keep going till they are all full. It is also important to note that all of your characters share the lockbox items and money (mana).
