Quality is modifier affecting some of the item's base stats. It is presented as golden stars when hovering over the item.

Base quality of an item is always 2 stars, and stats will be altered only if the quality is different from that. The more stars, the higher quality. Consequently, items with just 1 star will be weaker than normally, but higher will be stronger. Items can have up to 5 quality stars.

Not all items displaying quality can actually have different quality than 2. Following item types can be affected, as long they are normal permanent items: weapons, armors, accessories (earrings, rings, jawerly/emblem, necklaces), shields, spellbooks, focus. That being said event/temporary/cash items, artifacts etc. cannot be affected.

Primary method to affect quality is through crafting and happens randomly. Items with 2 quality will get crafted most frequently, following with gradually lower chances in following order: 3 > 1 > 4. 5 stars quality items cannot be crafted. Secondarily, there are some sources where certain items can be obtained with altered quality (usually 3). Quality can be also affected by special coupons listed later this thread.



Please note that the item will become bound upon reaching 5 quality stars, which is the maximum available.




♦ Quality details ♦

Following affects all types of items where quality can be altered.

You can also see it in SPREADSHEET or TABLE




Example: 90 lvl weapon with following stats:
  • Weapon essence: 7080 ATK, 6814 MATK, 4 ATKSPD
  • Keen Legendary Shard: 30 BAL, 31 CRIT
  • Solid Legendary Shard: 45 BAL, 44 STR, 24 AGI, 51 INT, 32 WIL
  • Lightweight Legendary Shard: 21 CRIT, 5 ATKSPD
  • Perfect Legendary Shard: 4720 ATK, 4605 MATK, 66 STR, 36 AGI, 74 INT, 48 WIL
TOTAL: 11800 ATK, 11419 MATK, 75 BAL, 52 CRIT, 9 ATKSPD, 110 STR, 60 AGI, 125 INT, 80 WIL

Since only ATK, MATK, DEF, STR, AGI, INT and WIL are affected by quality - rest stats will be ignored from this point on.

Sticking to the table and item's level, the example item would have following stats:
  • 1★: 11328 ATK, 10962 MATK, 884 STR, 81 AGI, 100 INT, 64 WIL (ATK and MATK are lower by 4%, STR/AGI/INT/WIL by 20%)
  • 2★: 11800 ATK, 11419 MATK, 110 STR, 60 AGI, 125 INT, 80 WIL (unchanged)
  • 3★: 12036 ATK, 11647 MATK, 126 STR, 69 AGI, 143 INT, 92 WIL (ATK and MATK are higher by 2%, STR/AGI/INT/WIL by 15%)
  • 4★: 12272 ATK, 11876 MATK, 132 STR, 72 AGI, 150 INT, 96 WIL (ATK and MATK are higher by 4%, STR/AGI/INT/WIL by 20%)
  • 5★: 12508 ATK, 12104 MATK, 137 STR, 75 AGI, 156 INT, 100 WIL (ATK and MATK are higher by 6%, STR/AGI/INT/WIL by 25%)

    The most recent untranslated quality coupon seemingly works like Quality Booster Coupon.
