Items are a very important part of the game (as you can guess from the number of pages this wiki dedicates to them). They are central to the combat system. They can alter your stats. Some of them are vehicles for quests, mark your presence on past Limited-time events or grant diverse powers. Some of them even use their descriptions to tell about your past adventures and the lore of the world of Sryth in general.

Using items Edit

  • Most items are equipped on a certain slot (see below) and unequipped items have no effect in game.
  • Some items can be used in certain situations. See Hints
  • Some items can be used in combat
  • You can store items in Dwellings to reduce your encumbrance. You can also drop them, which amounts to destroying them.
  • You can sell items in Shops

Unidentified items Edit

Main article: Unidentified Items

Some items from quests arrive to your inventory unidentified. You can identify them with the skill of Arcana (30+ required) or with the help of a sage.

Item ID Edit

Main article: Item ID

The Item ID is a unique identifier of an item's characteristics. While you can have several copies of an item in your inventory, all items with the same ID are exactly the same in every way.

Types of items Edit

Items can be described by their "slot", the part of your inventory they appear in. The basic categories are

  • Weapons
  • Armour (with differentiate slots for Shields, Torso, Head, Hands, Feet, Arms, Legs, Neck, Wrist, Rings, Waist, Back, Tabards and Pendants)
  • Misc

There is also an extra slot, "Marks", that only adventurers who completed the limited-time quest "And to All a Good Night" (see Old Quests) have.

You can equip just one item per slot, except on Rings (up to four rings at any given time).

Although their value and exact stats are determined by their Item ID, you can quickly gauge most weapons and armour pieces' effectiveness in combat (in mechanical terms, their bonus to MR and SP) by their Quality and Material. This also allows to roughly appraise their resale value. This only applies to ordinary (i.e. not magical) items.

Scale of qualities from worst to best:

poor -> inferior -> common -> sturdy -> well-crafted -> superior -> exceptional -> unmatched

Quality can also be:

Scale of materials from worst to best (there are several similar materials on some steps):

Padded/Leather -> Studded Leather/Hide/Bone -> Ring/Chain/Scale -> Splint/Banded -> Plate

This only applies to non-magical armour pieces.

Buying and Selling Edit

Main article: Item Selling Guide

An item's resale value is based both on both material, quality and slot. For example, a pair of Plate Boots (sturdy) are more valuable than a Leather Helm (superior). For detailed resale values see the Item Selling Guide.

This applies most often to loot (items randomly dropped after certain battles). Loot selling is the main source of gold in the game in the long run.

Tallys Edit

Main article: Tallys

Tallys is a retired adventurer who runs a Trading Post, where you can find some of the best items in the game. The only accepted currency in Tallys' Trading Post is Adventurer Tokens

Showing Items on the wiki Edit

Main article: Sryth Wiki:Editors Guide

In this wiki, each Item has a separate page in the Item Namespace (you can create them from a template (with detailed instructions) from the box in the main page). That item has an {{Itembox}} template describing all that is known in-game about the item.

To insert items on a page, enclose the item name in brackets, for example, to show the stats of the AG characters starting weapon, the Knight's Warsword, you would type {{Item:445 Knight's Warsword}} to get

 Item 445: Knight's Warsword (Exceptional) Value: 1,500 gold Weapon, Slashing 

Encumbrance: 8
Melee Rating: +4
This weapon is of exceptional quality.

Itemboxes are expected to be "safe" and spoiler-free, so you can feel free to include them on any page. As you can see, each item's name is a link to the item's page, where you can put details (including spoilers) about the item.

Lists of Items Edit

All items Edit

Items by type Edit

Check the very detailed categories below Category:Items.

See also Best Items By Type.

Manual lists Edit

These pages list special items that can be gained in Sryth. Some are specific rewards from a quest, some may be found during a quest, and others (such as Tallys Items) can be bought. If an item is not part of a set of rewards, then it will be under "unique" (such as the Wither Blade).

Keep in mind that these lists, although they try to be comprehensive, are very probably not complete. Also, as legacy of the old times of this wiki, they may not be properly maintained.
