General Magic Suffixes

Magic Items have one or two magical attributes applied to the basic item.

Example: Short Sword of Might


The numbers in brackets listed next to the items the suffixes appear on are the affix levels. They are used in several calculations (Gambling, Horadric Cube Recipes, Crafting, more). These are not to be confused with the Level Requirements that you actually see listed on items. These levels are also not the character levels required to use or find these suffixes. A level of 30 on a suffix doesn't mean you have to be 30 to see or use it. However, if your character level is at that level shown next to the item, you will be able to create (Horadric Cube) and Gamble these magical bonuses. The uses of these levels will be shown in more detail in other sections of this guide.

Item Level Requirements
When items list a Level Requirement, the number listed is 75% of the highest prefix or suffix level (as shown on this page) on the item. For example, an Amulet of the Titan(58) with Titan as the highest prefix (or suffix) would have a level requirement of 43. Rare Items do not list the magic prefixes and suffixes by name so you will have to figure out based on their stats what magic prefixes and suffixes are being used.

Items shown in yellow can appear on both Magic and Rare Items. Items shown in violet can only appear on Magic Items but not Rare Items.
