Unusual is a Quality that grants cosmetic items a custom particle effect. Unusual items are modified by an Ethereal Gem.

Custom couriers come in Unusual quality. They are only obtainable at a 1-2% chance through opening certain Treasures.


Most unusual effects have colors that can be altered by Prismatic Gems.

Gem Effects[edit]

Main article: Ethereal Gem

These effects are attached to Ethereal Gems. Gems can be removed with a Master Artificer's Hammer and placed on a different unusual courier to give it that particle effect. Doing so will destroy the original courier.

Other Effects[edit]

These particle effects are not linked to any Ethereal Gems, and are not officially categorized as Unusual quality.
