1. Introduction


The purpose of this guide is to provide as much information as possible about the items of this game. Please note that not all of this information is 100% correct (although it should be very accurate), some of the information is as stated by njaguar and some is self researched. Also, don’t get confused with the following:
- Magic level: Magical Level of an item. I.E. Magical, Rare, Mystical, etc.
- Quality/Tier Level: The Quality/Tier Level of an item. I.E. Rusted, Iron, Runewood etc.
- Stats/Prefix: Stats/Prefix of an item. I.E. +5 Int, +7 Dex, +3% Exp, etc.

3. Item Stats
** Please note that these are average amounts, they can be lower/higher than the listed ones depending on your gear.


3.1 Strength

* Increases your physical damage of your weapon by (roughly) 0.90% - 1.00% per point (~0.95% average, real formula is "hidden")


3.2 Dexterity (+ Critical Strike)

Dexterity:
* Increases the chance to score a critical hit by 0.XX% for every point of dexterity
- The more dexterity you have, the less % it adds to your critical strike chance. There is no real "breakpoint". I recommend to stop around 100-150 though, just my own experience
* Increases your physical attack speed
- Same as above, the more dexterity you have, the less % it adds to your attack speed, no real “breakpoint”
* Increases the damage done when you score a critical strike by roughly 1% per point
* Decreases the damage done to you when they hit you with a critical strike

Critical Strike:
* Increases the chance to score a critical hit by 1% for every point of critical strike

Q: Dexterity or Critical Strike?
A: Here’s my personal opinion regarding dexterity and critical strike
- 1 point of critical strike > 1 point of dexterity
- 2 points of dexterity ~ (equal) 1 point of critical strike (in this case, check the other stats on that item)
- 3 points of dexterity > 1 point of critical strike


3.3 Intelligence

* Increases your spell damage of your charm by roughly 1.05% per point
* Increases your charm (spell) attack speed
- The more intelligence you have, the less % it adds to your attack speed, no real “breakpoint”
* Decreases the damage done to you when they use a spell attack (like resistance, attack type (spell or physical) of a monster are not shown)


3.4 Vitality

* Increases your defense of your armor by (roughly) 0.90% - 1.00% per point (~0.95% average, real formula is "hidden")


3.5 Item Drop Stats




4. Extras


4.1 Transmutation Box FAQ

Q: What is the transmutation box?
A: The transmutation box will "fuse" two of your items. You will lose the two items you "fused" but in return you get a new item with new stats.
Recipes:
- Armor + Ice Charm = Armor with Strength or Mind Numb
- Armor + Fire Charm = Armor with Intelligence or Armor Pierce
- Armor + Lightning Charm = Armor with Dexterity or Damage Return
- Armor + Wind Charm = Armor with Dexterity or Critical Flux
- Armor + Earth Charm = Armor with Vitality or Block
- Armor + Wild Heal = Armor with Mana Regen or Luck
- Armor + Heal = Armor with Mana Regen or Physical Damage Reduction %
- Armor + Focused Heal = Armor with Life Regen or Magical Damage Reduction %
- Weapon + Weapon = Weapon with new stats
- Armor + Armor = Armor with new Stats
- Charm + Charm = Charm with new Stats

* All armor and charms must be magical or higher
* The tier of the armor and the charm must be the same
* The armor will be the same type of armor (possible variance on magical), with a guarenteed stat above depending on the charm type used
* Armor must be in 1st slot, charm in 2nd

Q: Does ‘Magic Luck’ have any effect regarding the result of the transmuted item?
A: Yes and no, I've seen LvL 1 chars muting a 231 EE wind charm, maybe having Magic Luck will increase your "Luck" a bit more than your normal "Luck". Nobody knows the actual formula nor has it been revealed.

Q: Which magic level will my item get?
A: Here’s a (basic) scenario with 0 Magic Luck.
Step 1: Highest Magic level Item - (minus) Lowest Magic level Item = XX
Step 2: XX + (plus) 1 = XX
Step 3: 100 : (divide) XX = XX%* To Spawn At That Magic level (see examples)

Example:
Mythical (LvL 5) - Rare (LvL 2) = 3 (5-2=3), 3+1= 4, 100:4 = 25% Chance to spawn either rare/mystical/angelic/mythical Magic level. (With insane amount of luck you can also get a magical or arcane one)

1 = Magical, 2 = Rare, 3 = Mystical, 4 = Angelic, etc.

Q: Which prefixes will my new transmuted item get?
A: You will get prefixes that are based on the item level. Therefore it's impossible to 'mute' any low level with 50+ str/dex etc. Section 3.5 for more information regarding this.


4.2 Enhanced Effect Comparison




4.3 Advanced Enhanced Effect Comparison

Ever thought of, “My 120 EE Ice XI Charm, or my 95 EE Fire XIII Charm?"
Formula:
[Average Dmg of the Tier] * [(1 + ('EE'/100))] = End Damage

Code

                Level      Ice       Fire       Average
Charm Quality   Required   Base Dmg  Base Dmg   Dmg per Tier
Spell XI        40         52-62     31-83      ~57.5
Spell XII       45         57-68     34-91      ~62.5
Spell XIII      50         61-73     37-98      ~67


Results:
120 EE Ice XI -> 57.5 x '120 EE' (2.20) = 126.5 (Average damage, without Int bonus)
95 EE Fire XIII -> 67 x '95 EE' (1.95) = 130.65 (Average damage, without Int bonus)

As you see, the second charm deals around 4 average damage more than the first one, but the first one requires less mana to use and lower level requirement. So basically, both the charms are almost the same, not worth getting both.


4.4 Calculating Your Damage/Defense

* Please note that this method is not 100% accurate, it gives you an idea what your damage/defense will become before buying/equipping the actual item.

[((Str*0.95/Int*1.05/Vit*0.95) : 100 ) + 1] * [Perm Link Damage/Defense] = Total Damage/Defense
Remember that:
1 point of Strength -> 0.95% EE (average)
1 point of Vitality -> 0.95% EE (average)
1 point of Intelligence -> 1.05% EE

How to get perm link damage back again?
[Base Damage/Defense * "EE" (100 + EE%) : 100] = XXX.XX Damage/Defense

Example: (Charm with 21-216 perm link damage and you have 157 Intelligence.
Min damage: [2.6485 (157*1.05 = (164.85 : 100) + 1] * [21] = 55.6185 -> 56
Max damage: [2.6485 (157*1.05 = (164.85 : 100) + 1] * [216] = 572.076 -> 572

The real damage of this charm was, 57-574. Miscalculation? ( http://img407.imageshack.us/img407/7206/lscharmlg8.jpg )
No, the (21.X and 216.X) ‘X’ value are not shown and they are hidden unless you calculate them yourself.
[21.6] * [2.6485] = 57
[216.6] * [2.6485] = 574


4.5 Prefix Spawn Chance

The % chance that the item will spawn with the prefix you wanted! (EG. An 'Epic' item has 31,28% chance to spawn with the prefix you wanted! Like 'EE' on your sword)
Total amount of prefixes ingame at the moment: [[ 33 ]] (See Item Drop chart for the prefixes)

Code
Magic level     Spawn chance
Magical         3,03%
Rare            6,15% (+3,12)
Mystical        9,38% (+3,23)
Angelic         12,71% (+3,33)
Mythical        16,16% (+3,45)
Arcane          19,73% (+3,57)
Legendary       23,43% (+3,70)
Godly           27,28% (+3,85)
Epic            31,28% (+4,00)
Relic           35,45% (+4,17)
Artifact        39,80% (+4,35)
Unique          44,34% (+4,54)



4.6 Life and Mana Regen

Here's the Life and Mana regen formula:
Your 'Base' Life/Mana regen [+]
Life/Mana regen from your gear [+]
1 extra Life/Mana regen for every 25 point of Int/Vit. (Stacks with items) [+]

Code
Level    Base Life/Mana regen
1-4      1
5-9      2
10-14    3
15-19    4
20-24    5
25-29    6
30-34    7
35-39    8
40-44    9
45-49    10
50-54    11
55-59    12
60-64    13
65-69    14
70-74    15
75-79    16
80+      17
