Suffixes

Suffixes Overview

Suffixes are magical modifiers that are found on magical and rare items. Suffixes are grouped by type, and there are usually several related suffixes that boost the same properties. Magical items have a prefix, a suffix, or both. Rare items can have up to six modifiers; 3 suffixes and 3 prefixes, or any combination thereof.

Magical items have a 50% chance of a suffix only, 25% chance of a prefix only, and 25% chance of both.

  • No prefixes will occur with others from the same family on the same Rare item. So if you got +%Defense on some kind of armor, you would get either Sturdy, Strong, Blessed, Glorious, Saintly, or Holy, but never more than one on the same item.
  • Alvl ( Affix Level): This figure is the level of the affix. The Ilvl of an item usually is equal to the maximum possible Alvl. For example a sword dropped by an Mlvl 50 creature would have an Ilvl of 50, and the highest affixes possible on it would be Alvl 50.
  • Clvl req is 3/4 the highest Alvl on an item. So a Rare with with four mods, Ilvl 8, 22, 30, and 70 would require Clvl 52 to equip. (Assuming the item type didn’t have a higher level requirement.)
  • Item types in Diablo II (please note that these do not necessarily correspond to Blizzard classifications):
    • Armor: Body Armors and Helms
    • Helms: include Animal Pelts (Druid Items) and Primal Helms (Barbarian Items) but not Circlets
    • Weapons All damage-inflicting items except Bows, Orbs, Scepters, Staves, and Wands, which are classified as their own item types and listed below as appropriate.
    • Bows: Bows and Crossbows
    • Shields include Shrunken Heads (aka Woodoo Heads; Necromancer items) and Auric Shields (Paladin items)

*Gloves and Rings can be spawned with a “1 to strength” stat with an affix level of 1. Such gloves and rings can only be dropped by Level 1 to 11 and Level 1 to 4 Monsters, respectively.

Very useful mods, these can allow you to equip an item earlier than you would otherwise, add to damage with melee and throwing weapons, and put fewer points into strength, saving it for other stats. The level requirements were heightened in the expansion pack by substantial amounts, in order to prevent low level characters wearing super powerful items and clearing the acts like cutting through a bar of butter (which was the case in Diablo II classic).
Note: +Str on an item will not allow you to equip that item. Example: If you have 90 Str and need 103 to wear your armor, and the armor has +15, it will not work. If you equip a +20 Str helm, put on the armor, and then remove the helm, the armor will go red and your character will appear naked. You must have enough Str to equip an item from your stats + other items.

* Boots and Gloves with a “+1 to Dexterity” stat (but not more) and an affix level of 1 can also be spawned but this is restricted to items with levels that do no exceed 12 (i.e. these items cannot be dropped by level 13 Monsters and above). This can also occur wtih Rings but in this case the item level cap is set to 5.

Very useful mods, these can allow you to equip an item earlier than you could otherwise, add to your defense and AR, and add to damage with bows, as well as allow you to put fewer stat points into dexterity. Like all the other mods, the level requirements got much higher than Diablo II Classic. Note: +Dex on a weapon will not allow you to equip that weapon. Example: If you have 110 Dex and need 118 to equip your Gothic Bow, and the bow has +10 Dex, it will not work. If you equip a +15 Dex helm, then equip the bow, it will work, but if you remove the helm the bow will turn red and be unusable. You must have enough Dex to equip an item from your stats + other items, no items can boost themselves to a usable level.

Useful mods, but compared to the hundreds of points of damage most attacks do for higher level characters, these are rather insignificant, though they are multiplied by skills and Str or Dex bonuses. Note: If you get +min and +max on the same item, it will display them together, i.e. “+1-17 damage” or “+4-3 damage”. The added minimum damage can be higher than the added maximum, but the max damage on a weapon will always be 1 higher than the minimum, no matter the modifiers.

* Circlets with 1-2 and 2-3 stats will only appear on items whose levels are within the 1-7 and 8-14 range, respectively. Circlets with 4-5 stats can appear on any item with a level of 15 and above.

# Circlets can be spawned with either 6-7 or 7-8 stats. The 6-7 stats can only appear on circlets whose levels are comprised between 23 and 29. The 7-8 stats can appear on any circlets with a level of 30 and above.

## Circlets can be spawned with either 9-10 or 11-12 stats. The 9-10 stats can only appear on circlets whose levels are comprised between 37 and 44. The 11-12 stats can appear on any circlets with a level of 45 and above.

Useful mods, but less valuable than the much larger +% damage mods such as Kings or Merciless. The added damage is multiplied by multiplied by skills and Str or Dex bonuses. However, Evisceration suffix is one of the most damaging affix you could get in your weapons. Cruel Barlog Blade of Evisceration is most duelers’ dream along with Cruel Colossus Blade of Quickness. Note: If you get +min and +max on the same item, it will display them together, I.E. “+1-17 damage” or “+4-3 damage”. The added minimum damage can be higher than the added maximum, but the max damage on a weapon will always be 1 higher than the minimum, no matter the modifiers.

Glacier[2-4]-[4-15]4 secondsBows, Scepters, Staves, Weapons2720
Winter[5-9]- [16-50]5 secondsScepters, Staves, Weapons4537

Very useful modifiers, especially on bows, since slowing down the monsters is always nice. The cold damage is negligible, it’s the chill effect that’s valued. The duration adds to any cold duration from other items, such as Eye of Etlich, Frostburns, Iceblink, etc, as well as cold or freezing skills. Note that cold damage occurs on fewer types of items than fire, lightning or poison, which can be found on rings, boots, and gloves as well. The cold duration range was changed for each suffixes, increasing by 1 second for each superior suffix.

* These items can also be spawned with an “Adds 1 Cold Damage” (0.5 second duration) stat with an affix level of 1. These items can only be dropped by Level 1-3 Monsters.

Monster chill/freeze times are 1/2 as long on Nightmare, and 1/4 as long on Hell.

Incineration[10-16]-[21-75]Bows, Scepters, Staves, Wands, Weapons [47]32

A very minor mod, the damage is tiny compared to weapon damage, especially since most monsters resist it. For example, a weapon with the best Incineration stats (16-75) would only inflict to a monster with 75% Fire Resist a fire damage of 11 on average (the mean of 16 and 75 multiplied by 75%). The high Clvl requirements that Flame puts on gloves, rings, and amulets makes it very unpopular on those.

*These items can also be spawned with an “Adds 1 Fire Damage” or “Adds 2 Fire Damage” stats with an affix level of 1. These items can only be dropped by Level 1-3 Monsters.

*These items can also be spawned with an “Adds x Lightning Damage” stat (where x is comprised between 1 and 3) with an affix level of 1. These items can only be dropped by Level 1-3 Monsters.

**This name is also used for the corresponding “% Chance to Cast on Attack” modifier, as well as for the corresponding “Charge” modifier.

Not especially useful mods, since there is no minimum damage increase, and most monsters resist lightning. 1-32 == 16.5 average and if 75% resist == 4 damage. Useless. Shock is very unpopular on Amulets, Boots, and Rings, for the large Clvl requirements it adds. The damage was upgraded significantly in the Expansion set, but charms could provide better damage.

* These items can also be spawned with an affix level of 1 and the “2 Poison Damage over 2 Seconds” stat but only by monsters whose levels are comprised between 1 and 4.

Very unpopular mods. The damage is very small, works over time, and Blight adds huge Clvl reqs to Amulets, and Rings. One benefit is that poisoned monsters do not regenerate hit points, which can be quite important in multiplayer Hell games. There is a bug with Poison damage in Diablo II, that no poisoned monster can ever be stunned. For this reason poison damage on weapons is very unpopular, though cold damage can largely mitigate the un-stunnable bug. This is fixed in the Expansion.

Swiftness+30%Scepters, Weapons3426
Quickness+40%Scepters, Weapons4638

Very popular modifiers on all types of weapons, especially bows. Useless with skills that ignore item speed, such as Whirlwind and Jab. The increased speed is only for attacking with the weapon, it has no effect on spell-casting rate when on wands, staves, or scepters. The Paladin’s Smite speed is based on weapon speed.
These modifiers, when on items (but not when granted from skills), suffer from diminishing returns.

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement

Very popular modifiers for spell-casting characters, especially Sorceresses. Fastest is worth 2 Fast, see full tables for all character spell-casting rates here. Note: There was a ‘Faster’ suffix on some Uniques pre-v1.04. It was identical to “Fastest” and has now been changed.

These modifiers, when on items (but not when granted from skills), suffer from diminishing returns.

Attack Ignores Target’s Defense

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
PiercingIgnores Target’s DefenseKnives, Scepters, Staves, Wands, Claws2518

According to Tommi Gustafsson’s To hit calculation page (under 6. Special Modifiers), Ignores Target’s Defense (ITD) only works against normal monsters.
ITD merely ignores the monster’s defense. Attacker’s / Defender’s relative levels can still cause misses. Therefore, ITD does not mean “Always hits”. Always Hits (a la Guided Arrow) however, will – as advertised – always hit, assuming that the attack (or for GA: missile) finds a target.

The Piercing affix is extremely useful for Paladins on scepters, since Paladins find it almost impossible to raise their Attack Rating enough to hit successfully in Hell difficulty, lacking the passive +AR skills the Amazon and Barbarian have.

* These items can also be spawned with an “Attacker Takes Damage of 1” stat and with an affix level of 1. They can however only be dropped by monsters with levels of 13 or less.

Monster Knockback/h2>

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
BearKnockbackOrbs, Scepters, Staves, Wands, Weapons86

A generally-hated modifier when associated with melee weapons since most characters want the monsters to stand still and be hit, but some Whirlwind Barbarians like it (and it can come handy to stun lock bosses). In contrast, this modifier is very useful on melee weapons that can be thrown (Throwing Axes, Throwing Knives, and Javelins) as it keeps the monsters away from the shooter.

Prevents Monster Healing

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
VilenessPrevent Monster HealAxes, Clubs, Daggers, Hammers, Maces, Spears, Swords96

Note: All monsters heal over time in DII other than Super Unique boss monsters. Since regeneration rates can be quite high for monsters with a lot of hps on hell, this can be very useful at times. This does not keep teleporting bosses from healing themselves when they teleport, however, nor does it prevent healing from other monsters, such as Sextons or Greater Mummies.

*These items can also be spawn with a “+1 to Energy” stat (but not more) with an attached Affix Level of 1. However this is restricted to item levels comprised between 1 and 4. It is therefore possible to find a “+1 to Energy” Helm with a Required Level of 1 but such a Helm can only by dropped by a level 1-4 Monster.

Very useful modifiers, at times more for combat characters than spell-casters, since Barbs and Amazons very seldom put any points into Energy, so need all their bonus mana from equipment, and don’t wear any of the +%mana uniques like SoJ or Frostburn. These can stack with the mana adding prefixes to yield up to 90 (88 due to n-1 bug) mana on a given item.

It is therefore possible to find a “Replenish Life +1” Amulet with a Required Level of 1 but such an Amulet can only by dropped by a level 1-9 Monster.

One of the least-balanced modifiers in the game which, given the enormous Level Requirement, are dreaded. Only 1 hit point per second is recovered with a “Replenish Life +10” stat. With red potions so common, and leech, these are very second-class modifiers.

Probably the most valued mods in the game for combat characters. Life leech keeps melee characters alive. Leech works with all types of physical damage, melee or ranged. Elemental damage on weapons or from skills doesn’t count for the leeched value, nor does damage dealt by minions. Example: If you had a sword that had 5% life steal and you hit a monster inflicting 50 damage you would steal 2.5 points of Life. Leech stacks and you get the total percent from weapon + jewelry.

Life and mana leech are cut to 1/2 on Nightmare and 1/4 on Hell difficulty. As a result, most characters find they need to increase their leech % once they reach Hell, barring a very high damage weapon.

Among the most valued mods in the game for combat characters. Mana leech is mandatory to use skills in combat, though a smaller % is needed as your character advances and does more damage. (4% of 500 damage is more than 10% of 100 damage, for example.) Leech works with all types of physical damage, melee or ranged. Elemental damage on weapons or from skills doesn’t count for the leeched value, nor does damage dealt by minions.Example: If you had a sword that had 5% life steal and you hit a monster inflicting 50 damage you would steal 2.5 points of mana. Leech stacks and you get the total percent from weapon + jewelry.

Generally ignored modifiers, since the values are so tiny, compared to the huge damage monsters deal. Minus Magical Damage is much more useful. Blizzard considered adding these as default properties to most types of plate mail, but this feature did not make it into the final game.

A very useful mod in certain situations. It’s great against damage over time such as from Firewall, Meteor, and Diablo’s pink lightning. These items are great due to their reduction being calculated every frame, (25 FPS D2 runs at), so something that deals 100 damage per second might deal 4 per frame, and could be totally absorbed by Negation. No fire resistance but several -MD points and you can stand in the firewalls in the Arcane Sanctuary and take literally zero damage. Less effective against elemental projectiles, since they do all their damage in one frame, much like physical damage.

From version 1.10, Blizzard has implemented modifiers that reduces the protective effect of Magic Damage Reduced (MDR) against certain continuous attacks (i.e. frame-based attacks such as Firewall). Blizzard apparently thought that MDR was too powerful against frame-based attacks, and consequently they reduced its effect as if it was applied once each second instead of once each frame. As there are 25 frames in one second, this means that the MDR effect is effectively cut to 1/25. There are a few frame-based attacks (e.g. Inferno spell) whose corresponding MDR modifiers are not as low as 1/25.

Defiance75%Amulets, Body Armors, Circlets, Shields2518

Not highly-valued, but not bad to have on Rares. More useful than poison resistance in most cases. The poison damage you take is a set amount per second for several seconds, so reducing the time directly reduces the damage. These add up, with the max reduction capped at 95%. The normal -20 and -50 penalties to resistance on Nightmare and Hell apply, so you’d need 115% for NM and 145% for Hell to keep the max 95% reduction. Two items of defiance is enough forever, basically.

Freeze Reduction

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
ThawingHalf Freeze DurationAmulets, Boots, Circlets, Gloves, Orbs, Rings, Shields107

Much like the Poison Length Reduction mods, these are useful, but not really sought out. High cold resistance appears to lessen chill time as well. Cold spells can have very long chill times in hell difficulty, especially the Frost Nova when a Cold Enchanted monster dies, and your character is vulnerable when cold. These do not help against the Holy Freeze Aura Duriel and some other Aura Enchanted bosses have, nor against Paladins with it in PvP. Unlike the Poison Length Reduced by modifiers, Half Freeze Length is applied only once; having more than one on your equipment is redundant.

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
Blocking10% increased chance of blocking; 15% faster block rateShields11
Deflecting20% increased chance of blocking; 30% faster block rateShields118

The most useful property of a shield is the blocking, so these are just about mandatory on a Rare shield. Most people using shields go for a Unique or Set, or else a three diamond tower/pavise, so Rare shields aren’t that often used, but they have the potential to be much higher blocking %, and have very good stats as well.

Hit Recovery

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
Balance10%Armor, Belts, Boots, Shields53
Equilibrium17%Belts, Body Armors, Shields96
Stability24%Body Armors, Belts1813

Very useful mods, some points in this is just about mandatory for most characters. Fastest is worth two fast, and generally one fastest is good enough, but with more you can cut your character’s stun time to almost nothing. Each character has a different length of stun time when hit; a Sorc would need a couple of these to be as fast as some other chars with none at all. The fastest hit recovery on Bloodfist unique gloves is actually worth three Balance, more than Stability.
These modifiers, when on items (but not when granted from skills), suffer from diminishing returns.

– % to Item Requirements

SuffixStatsItem TypeAffix LevelLevel Requirement
Ease-20%Body Armors, Bows, Shields, Weapons1511
Simplicity-30%Body Armors, Bows, Shields, Weapons2518

Extremely valuable modifier on high end items, such as the top Exceptional armor and weapons. Lowering their requirements allows a character to spend a lot less points in pre-reqs, and allows them to being using the item much sooner. For example, Ornate Plate requires 170 Str to equip, but would be 136 with Ease or 102 with Simplicity. A grim scythe would go from 140/140 to 84/84 with Simplicity, saving an astounding 112 stat points.

Most consider faster or fastest run on boots to be mandatory, but it’s just a convenience in most cases. Wearing heavy armor and/or carrying a tower shield slows running speed as well. These stack with the fast run bonus on Blinkbat’s Form, as well as faster running skills, such as Vigor or Fast Run.

These modifiers, when on items (but not when granted from skills), suffer from diminishing returns.

Increases the odds that an item, when dropped, will be magical, Rare, Set, or Unique (rather than cracked, normal, or superior.) Basically it upgrades normal items to magical ones, and also normal to superior, so can make finding socketed items harder, ironically.

  • Does not work for kills by minions (including Hydras, Revives, Skeletons, Valks, Mercs, Converted, etc) or by poison damage over time (poison damage kills are fine, it’s the X damage over X seconds that doesn’t work).
  • Works with ranged attacks and spells.
  • Having +100% does not mean you get an item for every monster. It means that whatever % chance an item drop would be magical/rare/set/unique is doubled. So if you had a 5% chance of a dropped item being magical, 1% chance of it being rare, 2% being a set and 0.5% being Unique, you would now have a 10% chance of it being magical, 2% chance for rare, 4% for Set and 1% Unique. All figures are hypothetical, just for this example. Note that the increase is not linear for rare, set, and unique items in the current version of Diablo II. See Magic Find.
