Spell Damage is available as three different families of Item Affixes, all of which are prefixes:

  • Spell Damage
  • Weapon Spell Damage
  • Weapon Spell Damage and Mana

The Spell Damage prefix is only found on amulets. The other two families of prefixes are found on wands, daggers, sceptres, int-only shields, and staves. The Spell Damage bonus on a staff has as higher range than the same prefix on one-handed items.

In addition, most wands come with an implicit modifier for increased Spell Damage.
