League-specific base items

League-specific base items are introduced in some temporary challenge leagues and restricted to that league mechanic. Some league mechanic are incorporated into the core game and have a default non-zero chance to spawn, while other did not and require either atlas passive, scarab, or Zana crafted map mod to spawns, or not spawnnable at all.

Demigod unique is a special type of race league specific item which is a reward to the winners of the race. To acquire the basetype of Demigod unique, player need to corrupt unique items and gain 5 copies of corrupted rare items then use 5 rare to 1 rare vendor recipe to gain back a unidentified rare item.

The following league specific items are drop disabled and no function in the current version of the game:

League-specific unique items

League-specific unique items are introduced in most challenge leagues. These items can sometimes be dropped in maps by either adding Zana's crafted league mod, or adding an Infused Map mod obtainable from Harvest crafting, to the map. Both variants have a hidden stat id map_set_league_category, e.g. HarvestInfusedMapNemesisZanaHarvestInfusedMapNemesisZana
Area contains 10 additional packs with a Rare monster
Rare Monsters each have a Nemesis Mod
Nemesis (Hidden)

8% increased Rarity of Items found in this Area
+5% Monster pack size
Rare Monsters each have a Nemesis Mod
(20-30)% more Rare Monsters
do not have this stat id and do NOT set the "league flag" to Nemesis league. However, GGG add most league-speicific world drop into core drop pool since version 3.14.0. It is not certain that which "world drop" unique still requires Zana crafted map mod or the Infused map mod.

Also the following methods may allow league-specific unique items as random drops (except that some items may only drop from a specific league-boss):

  • Beastcrafting.
  • Divination cards as listed on the item's page.
  • Cameria's Transportation Safehouse chests.
  • Table of Sacrifice at Hall of Offerings (level 2) or Altar of Sacrifice at Apex of Ascension (level 3) incursion rooms.

  • Using Reliquary Scarabs would improve the drop rate of uniques found in maps with league modifiers.

Note: For league-mechanics that have been introduced to core, the unique may be either enabled as world drop or boss drop. For example, killing bosses of their respective league: bosses of Warbands-themed map, Abyss/Delve/Synthesis bosses, The Vaal Omnitect, Mastermind, The Pale Council; finishing Beachhead maps, Breachlords' domains and Safehouses; killing monsters in Breach; doing Prophecy and open Perandus chests, etc.


Legacy items

Legacy items are discontinued versions of items that have been subjected to balance changes which do not affect existing copies of the item. Due to their limited availability, their prices can be high.

Most legacy items can be updated to their newest stats by using a Divine OrbDivine OrbStack Size: 10Randomises the numeric values of the random modifiers on an itemRight click this item then left click a magic, rare or unique item to apply it.

. In that case, a Divine Orb will only change the present mods to the new value, and not add additional ones. These orbs won't work when the base item was changed, either.

Legacy names

Certain unique items have had their names changed. Those items that were obtained before the name change was implemented will forever retain the old name.

Legacy modifiers

Some item affixes were changed or removed from the drop pool altogether for balance reasons.

Removed items

Certain items have been removed from the drop table, usually because they were replaced with another item. These items can only be obtained by trading with other players in a permanent league.

Event Items

Event Rewards

Each race and player-versus-player season offers rewards of existing items with alternate art for reaching certain point breakpoints within the season. Event-specific rewards (and alternate art counterparts of these) are also offered for placing well in the race or the season. All rewards are placed into remove-only tabs that can be viewed from any league, but once removed, they remain in the league they were taken into and cannot be transferred to other leagues. These rewards cannot be viewed or removed from the stash in temporary leagues until four weeks have passed since the beginning of the league.

Event Prizes

Main page: Event prize

At the end of each event and at the end of the season, unique trophy items are distributed among the best race and pvp participants. They follow the same rules as Event Rewards.
