Items are an essential feature in DFO, as are in any other games. Earlier on, characters depend greatly on levels and skills to improve their strength, but as the game progresses, they tend to become increasingly reliant on effective use of items, be they equipment, consumables, ingredients or quest materials.
Depending on their rarity, items are classified into different ranks, indicated by the color of their names.
|Weapons||Makes up 1 equipment slot||Each class has specialized weapons with varying attack speeds. Your subclass usually determines the type of weapon to use.|
|Armor||Makes up 5 equipment slots||Has five sub-types: Cloth Armor, Leather Armor, Light Armor, Heavy Armor, Plate Armor|
|Accessories||Makes up 3 equipment slots||Usually adds Magic Defense; makes up three slots, the Bracelet, Necklace, and Ring slots.|
|Titles||Makes up 1 equipment slot|| |
|Special Equipment||Makes up 2 equipment slots||Added in Act X: Rebirth, Sub Equipment equipment and Magic Stones boost special stats.|
Equipment refers to wearable items; there are a total of 10 possible equip slots on a character (does not include Avatar equip slots). Many weapons are class-specific, and certain classes get bonuses from specific armors; see Weapons and Armor for more information.
The Equipment Dictionary, A list of all the equipment found in the game, can be found by clicking the "Service Menu" button on the bottom of your screen and going to "Gear Info".
Basic common equipments can be found in shops, however there is such a substantial damage output difference between common weapon's stats and rare weapon's stats that these rarer items are highly recommended. The better equipment can only be obtained through drops or other players selling these drops. See Dungeon Drop Guide for drop information.
Grade quality affects certain stat ranges for these equipment. A weapons grade quality is dependent on its Attack values, Armor is affected by it's Physical defense values, and Accessories are dependent on it's Magic defense values. Extra attributes such as Elemental Resistances, Status Tolerances, Stat increases like STR, VIT, HP and MP are all not affected by the grade quality of the item in question and the stats are always randomly generated. For example, a Weak item can have more STR than an Exceptional item. Grade quality affects the Physical Defense of Armors and the Magic Defense of Accessories.
These items can be used via Hotkey or by right-clicking them in the inventory. They usually affect one of the stats and have a cooldown timer.
|HP Boost||Restores health points.|
|MP Boost||Restores mana points.|
|HP & MP Boost||Items that restore both health and mana points.|
|Temporary Stat Boost||Items that enhance any of your vital stats for a short time.|
|Permanent Stat Boost||Items that increase specific stats permanently (often these are gems).|
|Abnormal State Recovery||Items the remove enemy-induced states such as poison and bleeding|
|Elemental Attack/Resistance||Items that enhance your elemental damage or resistance.|
|Throwing Weapons||Items that you can hurl at the enemies for long range attacks.|
|Pots||Items that you can break to gain different kinds of gear items.|
|Summon Items||Consumable items that summon monsters to aid you in battle.|
|Recipes||Rare pieces of cloth on which are etched the ingredients for a very special item.|
Numerous items fall into this category, so this section of the inventory tends to fill up rather quickly. Examine quest requirements beforehand and regularly sort out the inventory.
|Quest Items||These items are used for quests, both normal and repeatable.|
|Craft Items||These items are used for crafting armor or weapons|
|Cube Fragments||Many spells and quests are related to Cube Fragments|

Avatars can be bought with NX via Item Shop or earned through events. They are used to customize your characters look and add useful stats upon that.

|Grey Items||Grey items are weakened versions of another item. It's recommended to just sell it to an NPC if it won't help you.|
|Common Items||Basic equipment with a white name, acquired easily in dungeons and NPC shops. As common equipment is seldom sought after by players, don't be afraid to sell it to an NPC or disassemble it for clear cubes.|
|Uncommon Items||Colored light blue, uncommon equipment of level requirements lower than 40 can be purchased from shops. They usually tend to be inexpensive.|
|Rare Items||Colored purple, rare items tend to be more pricey. They also come with seals that can be removed to personalize the item to that player. Once the seal is removed, the item can no longer be traded between players.|
|Legacy Items||Legacy equipment is the same rank and color as rare equipment, but can only be acquired from legacy pots sold by Danjin, Manjin, Arin, Pokin, Kadin, and Coral.|
|Chronicle Items||Equipment with red names, Chronicle Items are either obtained through Bucken, recipe creation, or drops from the Otherverse Dungeons. They cannot be traded between players and are bind-on-pickup. These usually require a lot of materials and involve lots of grinding, but these items are generally extremely powerful. There are three categories of chronicle items: 1st Chronicle,2nd Chronicle, and 3rd Chronicle. Chronicle items cannot be traded between players.|
|Unique Items||Colored dark pink, unique items are higher in rank then chronicle items, but are harder to obtain. They show up very infrequently in normal mode, and show up more in hell mode.|
|Boss Unique Items||The same rank as unique items, but they can only be found by defeating certain bosses in normal mode.|
|Epic Items||Epic items, colored yellow, are the highest rank of equipment in the game. They can be acquired through Hero Pots sold by Simona, purchased from Grandis, or through monster hunts in Hell Mode. Epic items cannot be traded between players.|

Cube pieces and elemental crystals come in useful throughout the game. Loton in Hendon Myre disassembles any gear item into these very materials.
