Not to be confused with an item's Rarity.

Quality is a property of cosmetic items. It is represented in-game by the item's prefix and name color.

Quality is a purely cosmetic property, and has no effect on gameplay.

General Information[edit]

  • Items have both a quality and a rarity value.
  • Certain qualities can be added or altered by Gems.
  • Only Normal quality items can be acquired through the item drop system.
  • Items with certain qualities cannot be traded or put on the Market.

Some Gems will change the quality of an item. In the event of a conflict with an item's existing quality, a priority is followed. Higher priority qualities take precedence.

Example 1: Socketing an Inscribed item with an Autograph Rune will change the item's quality to Autographed.
Example 2: Socketing a Genuine item with an Autograph Rune will not change the item's quality.
