Quality

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Path Of Exile - Guide - Quality Basics

Quality applies to armor, weapons, flasks, and gems; in short, all equipment aside from belts and jewelry. It always varies from 0% (at which point it is not displayed on the item) to +20%, and each item type has a currency item associated with it to increase its quality. Quality can be an extremely important method of improving items, as it does not affect the requirements for using an item or the mana cost of skills.

All items are capped at +20% quality and each quality improving item will improve Normal (White) items by 5% each, Magic (Blue) items by 2%, and Rare (Yellow) and Unique (Orange) items by 1%.

consume all the quality on an item to increase the chances of rolling more sockets/links.[1]

Armour

On armour (helm, chest piece, gloves, boots, and shield), quality multiplies the Armour rating, Evasion, or Energy Shield rating by the listed percentage. Thus, a piece of armour that naturally gives 100 Armour that has a "100% increased armour" Prefix, and a " +50 to maximum armour" Prefix, would, with +20% quality, give 360 Armour.

(Base Armour100 + Adds Maximum Armour Prefix50)*(1 + Percentage Increased Armour Prefix100%)*(1 + 20%Quality)=360

Weapons

Quality weapons have their minimum and maximum damages increased by the listed percentage. Thus, a weapon that normally does 50-100 damage would that has a "100% increased physical damage" Prefix and a "adds 10-20 physical damage" Prefix, with +20% quality, deals 132-264 damage.

(Base minimum damage50 + Adds physical damage prefix10)*(1 + Percentage increased physical damage prefix100% + Quality20%)=132

(Base maximum damage100 + Adds physical damage prefix20)*(1 + Percentage increased physical damage prefix100% + Quality20%)=264

Flasks

The amount of health and/or mana restored by a health, mana or hybrid flask is improved by the quality percentage. Therefore, a flask which normally restores 100 Life and 50 Mana instead restores 120 Life and 60 Mana if it has +20% quality.

Utility flasks instead have their duration increased by the quality percentage.

Maps

On maps, quality is treated as extra quantity. It is added to the quantity from the affixes and suffixes of the map. Maps may be improved with a Cartographer's ChiselCartographer's Chisel

Skill Gems

Both active and support skill gems may have quality. Every skill is affected by quality differently, but frequently it somehow improves the damage dealt with the skill. Buffs and curses, obviously, do not have their damage improved. Even those that do have their damage improved will see different rates of improvement for a given amount of quality.
