From Dota 2 Wiki
Rarity is a property of cosmetic items. It is represented in-game by the item's color theme.
Rarity is a purely cosmetic property, and has no effect on gameplay.
- Items have both a Rarity and a Quality value.
- In general, rarer items tend to have more customizations.
- The rarity of items that can drop is dependent on the player's Profile Level.
- Lower rarity items drop more frequently than higher rarity items.
- This system was implemented to reduce item farming by bots.
- Rarity does not determine whether or not an item is tradeable or marketable, Quality does.
- Under rare circumstances, an item's rarity can be changed by Valve.
