There are five types of items: Normal, Exceptional, Rare, Unique, and Set Items.
Item names will appear in color as follows:
||Item Name Color
Do not leave items that you want, laying on the ground, as you did in Diablo I. Regular or normal items will disappear after about 10 minutes of gameplay; magic items will disappear after about 20 minutes, and rare, set, or unique items will disappear after about 30 minutes.
The quality of armor that your character wears will have an affect on your Stamina. Armor is classified as Light, Medium, or Heavy. If you character is having a Stamina problem, try dropping down to a lower armor level; it will probably help.
Rare items are Magic items with 4 to 6 magical properties, and have a special name. The name is not connected to the attributes of the item, and the name is randomly generated. Because of the randomly generated and randomly named nature of rare items, it is not possible to list the possible rare items.
