A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).

An example of the inventory screen with various equipment currently in use.

Equipment refers to weapons, armour, accessories, jewels, and flasks that a character can use.


Weapons are equipment used to perform attacks or channel spells.

Types of weapons:


Armour is a category of equipment worn on different parts of the body to provide protection and bonuses from magical properties.

Types of armour:


Accessories do not implicitly provide protection like armour, but are useful for their supporting role and magical properties.

Unlike other equipment, accessories do not have gem sockets, with the exception of Unset Rings and Black Maw Talismans.

Types of accessories:

The generic term jewellery (or jewelry) includes rings, amulets and belts.


Jewels are a type of item that act much like other pieces of equipment in that they provide various bonuses, but instead are socketed directly into jewel sockets in the passive skill tree. Like other equipment, they can be removed and equipped freely at any time.


Flasks are used to store potions that can be drunk to restore life or mana. There are other types of flasks that provide a temporary benefit when imbibed.

Unique equipment

These equipment types can also be found in unique forms, with special graphic appearances, graphic effects, and unique bonuses not found on other equipment.
