$ -=+<< Item Values??? >>+=- $
« on: June 09, 2011, 09:22:17 am »

Hi there, I can't figure out what the <<Item>> modifier is. Anywhere. Please enlighten me.

All I could find was the below which I suppose is unrelated.

 Item Name            1    
-Item Name-    Well-crafted    2    
+Item Name+    Finely-crafted    3    
*Item Name*    Superior quality    4    
≡Item Name≡    Exceptional    5    
☼Item Name☼    Masterful    12    
Unique Name    Artifact    120

Cheers.

 Item Name            1   
-Item Name-    Well-crafted    2   
+Item Name+    Finely-crafted    3   
*Item Name*    Superior quality    4   
≡Item Name≡    Exceptional    5   
☼Item Name☼    Masterful    12   
Unique Name    Artifact    120

Those are the effects on the value of an item.

 Item Name            1   
-Item Name-    Well-crafted    1
+Item Name+    Finely-crafted    1   
*Item Name*    Superior quality    1   
≡Item Name≡    Exceptional    1   
☼Item Name☼    Masterful    2   
Unique Name    Artifact    3

Those are the weapon-to-hit and armor-deflection modifiers.

More accurately, the modifier icons inside the brackets are the item quality, and the ones outside are the decoration quality.
☼<<☼Iron mace☼>>☼ -- Masterfully decorated masterful iron mace.
-<<☼Iron mace☼>>-   -- Well-decorated masterful iron mace.

The value modifier you noted applies once for each.
The damage/defense modifier from Corneria only applies to the item quality notation.

The $ indicates that it is owned, but not by you.  Taking this without buying it will result in theft charges.

Also, !!items!! are on fire, and xitemsx or xxitemsxx are damaged.  I think that covers all of the modifiers.

-+itemName+-

The + inside the corresponds to the base item's quality, which affects value and (if it's masterful) hit/block chance.  The - outside of the corresponds to the quality of the highest-quality decorations on the item.  It doesn't affect use at all, just value.
