Item Properties

(Redirected from Item Property)

Item Properties are descriptors that outline general information about and benefits bestowed by the various items in the game. With the Age of Shadows expansion, the list of possible properties was modified and greatly increased. Expansions like Stygian Abyss and event items like Epiphany Armor Set added more properties to this list.

Item Properties Pre-AoS

The original item property system lasted for over 5 years and consisted of only 5 item properties. Prior to Ultima Online: Age of Shadows, the item properties were:

While there were many different types of hit spell, a weapon could only have one, so it is counted here as a single property.

Armor

A piece of armor had up to three properties:

  1. Armor Resistance Increase: (Defense, Guarding, Hardening, Fortification and Invulnerability);
  2. Durability: (Durable, Substantial, Massive, Fortified and Indestructible);
  3. Blessed or Cursed.

Example: "Indestructible Platemail Helm of Invulnerability with Weaken spell"

Weapons

As for weapons there were five properties.

  1. Damage Increase (Ruin, Might, Force, Power, and Vanquishing);
  2. Weapon Skill Bonus (Accurate, Surpassingly Accurate, Eminently Accurate, Exceedingly Accurate and Supremely Accurate);
  3. Durability
  4. Slayer; and
  5. Hit Spell.

Notes on Original System

  • Some spells that were available on weapons prior to the Age of Shadows are not available now, Clumsy, Weaken, Feeblemind, Mana Drain, and Curse.
  • An item to note is how little the Damage Increase property affected the weapon damage output under the old system. Vanquishing added only 9 points of damage to the total. If a Heavy Crossbow can do up to 56 points of damage before resistances are taken into account, then the Vanquishing property only increases the crossbow damage output 14% to 65, which is a far cry from the 100% that is possible today.
  • Prior to the introduction of runics, the best items could only be acquired by looting monsters.
