  • Name? All items have a name. Some names include a random item suffix.
  • Icon? All items have an icon that represents the icon in the player's inventory. Icons are often reused for different items.
  • Quality? An item's quality is represented by the text color of the item name.
  • Stackable? If an item is stackable, the current stack size is displayed as a small white number in the item's icon. All items have a stack limit.
  • Item level? The item level reflects the item's usefulness and its level requirements (e.g. "Item Level 245").
