Known Items Listing
- Note: The following is taken from the development of Diablo III, and no information contained herein is current.
Little is known about the Items in Diablo III. There will likely be uniques, sets and many other items of the types we're familiar with from Diablo II, but this far before release the D3 team is keeping quiet about item types, and what we see in screenshots and gameplay movies is subject to change.
Items in the WWI Gameplay Movie[edit | edit source]
The name colours of these items are not yet confirmed. White items seem to be normal, but purple are unknown. There were no purple named item types in Diablo II, so it's unknown if these are analogous to Rare, Set, or Unique, or are an entirely new type of item. Also keep in mind that item stats are the sort of feature that is highly subject to change during development.
The Diablo III team is taking a lot of inspiration from World of Warcraft, meaning the purple items in Diablo III could be Epics.
Item Colors and Item Types[edit | edit source]
The Background and the name of items is colored to show which Item Type they are, The colors and item types are:
- Normal items = No/White Color: An Item that has no magical effects.
- Magic items = Blue Color: An Item that has some random magical effects/Attributes, each effect/attribute bonus gives a specific prefix and/or a specific suffix to the name of the item to reflect this.
- Rare items = Yellow Color: An Item that has Many random magical effects/Attributes, including some unique ones and is better by stats than a magical item. It comes with a randomly selected preset name.
- Set items = Green Color: Set items belong to a set, which is powerful if the set is complete. Some sets are made for specific classes and increase the class' skills and gives effects/attributes more appropriate for that class. Each set and set piece is Uniquely named. Set items complement one another, so if you have 2 different items of the same set (I.E Boots and Gloves), you will get a bonus for having 2 items of the set. Set items can either be crafted (lower level), or can be drops (end-game). All set items are of legendary quality.
- Unique/Legendary items = Orange Color: Considered to be the best items in the game for certain slots/builds, they will be uniquely named, will look unique, and will possess unique effects/attributes. The color was changed to orange because of the similarity between gold and yellow in Diablo II.

Consumables[edit | edit source]
- Elixirs provide effects for a limited period, and have a number on the end indicating the rank of the elixir (so far, only rank 1 and rank 3 elixirs were seen). Higher ranks of Elixirs could mean better effects and/or longer lasting time. (Standard lasting time is 300 seconds as was seen in the BlizzCon Demo)
- Elixir of Strength I. : Gives X amount of Strength for Y amount of time.
- Elixir of Dexterity I. : Gives X amount of Dexterity for Y amount of time.
- Elixir of Vitality I. : Gives X amount of Vitality for Y amount of time.
- Elixir of Willpower I. : Gives X amount of Willpower for Y amount of time.
- Elixir of Regeneration I. : Restores X amount of HP over Y amount of time.
- Scrolls are small, stackable, 1-time-use items that provide effects for a limited period. World of Warcraft has similar scrolls, which buff the player for 30 to 60 minutes with various buffs (mostly stats and armor). They too have ranks, except they are represent by an adjective instead of a number, that could mean better effects and/or longer lasting time.
- Scroll of Town Portal (Removed) : Opens a portal to town. Could be a completely different scroll.
- Unknown Red Scroll : As seen in the latest screenshots, 4 stacked red scrolls. They could be Scrolls of Identity, but this is not confirmed.
- Scroll of Superior Protection : Gives X amount of Armor for Y amount of time.
- Scroll of Detection : It is unknown what this scroll does, but it was seen in the GamesCom 2009 demo, so it may have a good use, like detecting invisible monsters, for example.
- Scroll of Wealth : Allows the player to sell his items/loot right on the spot. May look like a Yellow Scroll.
- Potions are concoctions that provide the player with some sort of relief. 1 Potion has been seen so far in inventories, they have the same icon as they had in D2.
- Vials are a sort of potion, which are made for the player's teammates. The player cannot use them on himself, Only One vial has been seen in an inventory (in the GamesCom Video).
- Vial of Resurrection : In the item description (hard to read, by the way), it says ".... Fallen Party Member" (The 1st 3-4 words are unreadable). This implies that this vial is made to resurrect fallen party members.
Jewelry[edit | edit source]
- Amulets are worn in the Amulet Slot. There are various designs of amulets, but their effects/stats are determined by what item type they are, since each item type has its own rules regarding effects/stats.
- Rings are worn in the Rings Slots. There are various designs of rings, but their effects/stats are determined by what item type they are, since each item type has its own rules regarding effects/stats.
- Gems are small, precious stones that are magically enchanted and can be socketed into an item, to give it a permanent effect (it is not known whether you can replace socketed gems). Each gem type has properties that give a specific effect depending where you socket it. Ranks of gems exist, and are named by how fine they are cut (Chipped, Flawless). As stated in a recent talk with Jay Wilson, Sockets are random and affect all items, meaning that 1 player may get a Legendary item while another player gets that same item but with a socket(s).
List of Prefixes/Suffixes/Non-Magical Prefixes[edit | edit source]
Items with non-magical prefixes, are not Magic items, they still maintain a white colored name, they are rather, prefixes that make the item better than normal, sometimes adding magical effects BUT not making the item change its color to blue. Also the magical effects (if any) are randomized.
Note: "..." = the name of the item. So ".... of Storms" could mean "Heavy Axe of Storms" or "Short Sword of Storms"

Crafting[edit | edit source]
Crafting goods are used for Artisans, to craft items and to train the artisan in their selected craft. These are obtained by Salvaging items, turning them into Raw Materials. It is very similar to World of Warcrafts' Disenchanting sub-profession.
- Crafting Goods
- Common Scraps
- Subtle Essence
Skill Runes[edit | edit source]
- Skill Runes are items that can be socketed into skills to improve or change them uniquely based on the rune. There are 5 rune types: Crimson, Indigo, Obsidian, Gold, and Alabaster.
Each type of rune affects every skill differently, although there are similarities. Runes have 7 ranks of quality, each rank is visualized by a spike extruding from the rune (lowest rank doesn't have a spike, highest rank has 6 spikes).
Runes have undergone a tortuous evolution, with a whole new system revealed in August, 2010 and fleshed out at Blizzcon in October 2010. See the runestones page for all the updates.
Misc Small Items[edit | edit source]
According to Jay Wilson during his short interview for the 6th Blizzcast episode, elixirs will provide a short-term buff. For more information see a transcript of the blizzcast, or our article on elixirs.
