Items can be found in chests, obtained in Shops or received as gifts from Shrines. Items come in various categories.

Weapons are used to fend off monsters. This includes swords and bows, but also boomerangs, bombs, and rods. Wands are a kind of weapon with special effects.

Armor includes suits of armor, headgear, boots, but also rings and necklaces. These items have no active use.

Spellbooks impart knowledge of a new spell. They can also be thrown into the bonfire at intermissions. This adds 10 health to the bonfire's healing power.

Scrolls can activate a useful effect. Like spellbooks, they can be thrown into the bonfire, adding 2 health to the bonfire's healing power.

Potions can be drank for a specific effect, whiimpart a beneficial status effect on the player. Some potions impart a temporary stat

Most armor and weapons in the game bestow stat modifiers to the player if they are being worn, which can increase or decrease attributes.

Various items can be sacrificed to Shrines.

Artifacts[edit | edit source]

Some items are considered artifacts. Artifacts spawn with a unique effect which can only ever be found once per a run. Artifacts can be obtained in the same ways as regular items, but boss chests are more likely to hold artifacts.

Identification[edit | edit source]

Most items are never identified by default, unless they are part of your starting equipment. All weapons and armor have different statistics: they must be identified individually.

However, identifying one type of scroll or potion will identify every instance of that item for the duration of your run.

Items are automatically identified when they are equipped or used. The only way to identify an item without doing so is to use a Scroll of Identify on that particular item.

All items are automatically identified at the end of a run.

Curses[edit | edit source]

Every weapon or armor found throughout the game has a chance to be cursed, with some exceptions. Identifying a weapon will reveal the presence of a curse.

Cursed weapons and armor cannot be unequipped by normal means. If the item has a attribute, it will be twisted to become useless or debilitating.

Two ways to remove a curse is to use a Scroll of Uncurse while the item is equipped, or using a Scroll of Enchant on the cursed item.

The presence of a curse can be revealed without identification by offering the item to the Shackled. If the item is cursed, it will become god cursed. Otherwise, nothing will happen.

Boomerangs and bombs can never be cursed. Curses on Wands are automatically identified.

If a player destroys the Shackled, all items in the player's backpack and the shop will be cursed.

God Curses[edit | edit source]

A God Curse restores an item's special property to the normal version and grants the item a large amount of stat bonuses.

A God Cursed item can never be unequipped, unless the character dies in multiplayer.

An unidentified item from the Shopkeeper's Stash is always God Cursed.

Scrolls[edit | edit source]

Scroll icon.png

Scrolls are single-use items. You can buy them from the shop or find them inside barrels and crates. A scroll can be identified by either using a Scroll of Identify, buying or using it. Which effect each color has changes with every new game.

Scroll Description
Scroll of Chaos Unleashed power and unpredictable effects. Dangerous to the unlucky. (can only be obtained from the deranged)
Scroll of Identify Identifies an itemwithout having to deal with possible negative effects.
Scroll of Jump Imbues the reader with the power to jump incredibly high once. It does not disable fall damage.
Scroll of Magic Mapping Reveals the entire map of the current level.
Scroll of Recharge Adds charges to a wand or rod.
Scroll of Teleportation Teleports the user to a random location in the current level.
Scroll of Uncurse Purifies all currently equipped items.
Scroll of Enchant Adds or subtracts a random stat effect to a selected item. Uncurses items if stats get added.

*Note that when using unidentified scrolls, the scrolls that are used for specific items in your inventory (Identify, Recharge, and Enchant) will turn on the selection reticle to select another item. This can help distinguish scrolls when unidentified.

Potions[edit | edit source]

Potion icon.png

Potions are single-use items available in a variety of colors. Which effect each color has changes with every new game. Potions are either found in barrels, crates, Big Chests (which always have 2) or bought at the shop. Potion effects last for the entirety of the level, except for the Potion of Regeneration and Potion of Poison. Potions can also be identified with a Scroll of Identify, useful for finding Potions of Poison.

There also exist potions that increase or decrease stats by 1. Potions of this type come in variants of Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Vitality, Luck, Speed, and all Elemental Resistances. To this end, you should be careful when drinking unidentified potions or you may be poisoned or potentially lose stats.

The Mage's first skill in its Alchemy tree, Potion Knowledge, will reveal all potions picked up by the player or other teammates for the entirety of the game

Effects[edit | edit source]

Equipment in the dungeon of Vagante have different effects, most which drastically change how you approach a situation.

Having multiple times the same effects (for those which have the possibility of doing so such as +stats on all items or auras on helmet and armor) add to the existing effect :

• Stats bonus adds onto each other (or subtract if negative).

• Multiple item with the same auras reduce the time between each time an aura's effect take action (but doesn't boost the damages when applicable). The reduction is halving the tick timer.
