An Unidentified Legendary Dagger (Outdated)

Identifications, or IDs, are bonuses found on a variety of items that can boost or hinder the player in various ways. Identifications can affect damage, defense, mobility, XP gain, and more. Major Identification provide even greater changes to gameplay.

The most common source of identifications is from weapons, armor, and accessories. Armor and accessory identifications are applied as long as they are equipped, while weapon identifications are gained as long as you are holding the weapon. You can also obtain identifications through the effects of potions, tomes, and crafted consumables from the Alchemism, Cooking, and Scribing professions.

You can view the identifications you currently have at any time by looking at your Character Info menu.

List of identifications

This is a full list of each available identification in-game, separated by category. For further explanation on identifications marked with a *, see the section below. All identifications can be either positive or negative, though not all identifications have an actual effect if they are negative. For example, negative damage IDs cannot make you deal negative damage, while negative health regen will cause you to lose health over time instead of gaining it.

Identification Notes

Loot Bonus and Quality

Loot bonus increases the quantity of items found from mob drops and loot chests, while loot quality increases the chance of getting rarer items while reducing the rates of getting common items. The mechanics of each are different depending on whether it is loot from a chest or loot from a mob.

On Chests

Loot bonus and loot quality have a soft cap on boosting loot from chests. Loot bonus softcaps at 80% while loot quality softcaps at 40%. This means that past these points, the effectiveness of gaining more loot bonus or loot quality will be greatly diminished.

Each interval of loot bonus becomes less effective the more you have. So, if you have 80% loot bonus, then the total real effectiveness of it on chests would be 50% more loot. If you have 40% loot quality, then the total real effectiveness of it would be 25% better loot.

Loot Bonus Real Effectiveness on Loot Total Real Effectiveness
First 20% (1-20%) 20% 20%
Second 20% (21-40%) 15% 35%
Third 20% (41-60%) 10% 45%
Fourth 20% (61-80%) 5% 50%
Every 5% Loot Bonus after 80% +1% >50%
Loot Quality Real Effectiveness on Loot Total Real Effectiveness
First 10% (1-10%) 10% 10%
Second 10% (11-20%) 7.5% 17.5%
Third 10% (21-30%) 5% 22.5%
Fourth 10% (31-40%) 2.5% 25%
Every 5% Loot Quality after 40% +0.5% >25%

On Mobs

On mobs, loot bonus and loot quality do not have softcaps, and they have the same effect on drop rates. 1% of loot bonus gives the same effect as 1% of loot quality. Both increase the drop rate of items from mobs by a percentage, so having 100% loot bonus would mean that items from the mob have double the regular drop chance, 200% for triple the drop chance, and so on.

Thorns and Reflection

Both thorns and reflection deal damage back to enemies that hit you. Thorns activates on melee hits, while reflection activates on projectiles and spells. If the attacker is a mob, it takes 150% of the final damage you took. If the attacker is another player, then they take 50% of the final damage you took.

Neither thorns or reflection decrease the amount of damage you take. The percent value of the ID only represents the chance that it activates upon any given hit. Having more than 100% thorns or reflection has no extra effect.

Mana and Life Steal

These two IDs allow you to gain mana or health when you hit mobs with your main attack. For each mob you hit, you gain a portion of your life and mana steal value. The portion of the value gained depends on your attack speed. Slower attack speeds will gain more health and mana per hit since they attack slower, while faster attack speeds will gain less health and mana per hit, since they can hit faster. However, it all balances out so that no matter your attack speed, you will gain the value of your life and mana steal by constantly attacking a mob for 3 seconds.

Additionally, life and mana steal triggers on weapon powder specials too. Hitting mobs with Quake and Courage's flare will trigger life and mana steal on each mob hit. Chain Lightning will trigger life and mana steal each time it chains to a mob.

Life and mana steal will not trigger when you hit passive mobs.

Portion of Life/Mana Steal Gained Per Hit
Attack Speed Single Attack Double Attacks Triple Attacks Quintuple Attacks
Most main attacks Archer's Double Shots
Assassin's Double Slice
Shaman's Main Attack
Archer's Triple Shots
Shaman's Hand of the Shaman
Super Fast 7.8% 3.9% 2.6% 1.56%
Very Fast 10.7% 5.35% 3.57% 2.14%
Fast 13.3% 6.65% 4.43% 2.66%
Normal 16.3% 8.15% 5.43% 3.26%
Slow 22.2% 11.1% 7.4% 4.44%
Very Slow 40.2% 20.1% 13.33% 8.04%
Super Slow 65.4% 32.7% 21.8% 13.08%

Spell Cost

Percent spell cost and raw spell cost are groups of four "sub-identifications" each: one for each spell, encoded as 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. These are displayed based on the class being played, which might cause some confusion in the cases of weapons; a Spear that reduces the cost of the Bash spell by 1, if viewed by a Mage, will instead show that it reduces the cost of the Mage's Heal (despite the fact that Mages cannot use Spears) because Bash and Heal are both the 1st spell for their respective classes.

The mana cost to cast a spell is calculated in the following steps:

  • Base cost: This is determined by the spell, the class and the combat level (see a given class' specific page for these values).
  • Intelligence bonus: The base cost is modified based on your total Intelligence stat. This bonus ranges from 0% cost reduction at 0 Intelligence to a maximum of 80.8% reduction at 150 Intelligence.
  • The cost is then modified further by your spell cost IDs.
    • Raw spell cost: Raw bonuses and penalties are calculated first, and are relatively straightforward. A -1 bonus will reduce the total cost by 1, a +2 penalty will increase the cost by 2, and so on.
    • Percent spell cost: Finally, percent spell cost bonuses or penalties are applied. Any bonus, even -1%, will reduce the cost by at least 1, while any penalty will increase it by at least 1. Beyond that, the percent thresholds required to modify the final mana cost by a whole point are dependant on the result of the previous step, with higher total costs having lower per-point thresholds. A percent spell cost bonus of -89% is currently the maximum required to reduce the cost of any spell to 1.

The absolute minimum final cost to cast any spell is 1 mana (except in the cases of certain Major IDs; see below).

Also, note that when casting the same spell several times in quick succession, the cost will increase each time, and even with extreme spell cost bonuses (such as when teleporting with Warp) the increasing mana cost will eventually become unsustainable.

Attack Speed Bonus

This ID allows a weapon to attack faster (or slower for negative values).

One tier is equivalent to one step up or down the list of attack speeds. Attack speed is always bound between Super Slow and Super Fast, so a -20 tier attack speed ID would only result in a Super Slow attack speed.

Attack Speed Hits per Second
Super Fast 4.3
Very Fast 3.1
Fast 2.5
Normal 2.05
Slow 1.5
Very Slow 0.83
Super Slow 0.51

Major Identifications

Major IDs are a type of special identification introduced in the 1.19 Silent Expanse Update. Major IDs are only present on specific items, are not randomly rolled, and provide a wide range of effects that cannot be acquired elsewhere. Because of this, some of these IDs are only available with certain Classes. Major IDs stack with each other (meaning you can have both Hawkeye and Greed at the same time) but don't stack with themselves (meaning having two items with the Greed Major ID won't heal you for 30% of your max HP instead of 15%).

In addition to items, Major IDs can be obtained from Raid Buffs.
