The adventurers are here for the loot, right? There's plenty of items to go around and some may be beneficial while others may be harmful.
The color of an item determines its value as shown in this table below.
Cursed items are character binding items that come in two flavors, Cursed and God Cursed. Cursed items can be purified with a Scroll of Uncurse. God Cursed items, obtained by dropping a Cursed item under a Shackled shrine, are usually more powerful and cannot be uncursed.
Artifacts spawn with a unique item attribute which can only ever be found once per a run. While items from boss chests are much more likely to be an artifact, they can rarely be found in normal chests too. Some existing unique items have been marked as artifacts as well, such that you’ll never find more than one of these items in a run (Ring of Seltioc, Ring of Zygox, and the Grappling Hook are examples).
There are three main types of items: Weapons, Armor, and Spells. Weapons are how you fend off the monsters that are out to take you down, Armor keeps you standing up, and Spells assist in interesting ways.
Scrolls[edit | edit source]
Scrolls are single use items. You can buy them from the shop or find them inside barrels, crates, and chests. A scroll can be identified by either using a Scroll of Identify or by buying it. Which effect each color has changes with every new game.
|Scroll of Chaos||Unleashed power and unpredictable effects. Dangerous to the unlucky.|
|Scroll of Identify||Identifies a item without 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.|
|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 selected item.|
*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]
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.
