A focus item is an off-hand weapon that grants an energy bonus to the character wielding it.

Properties[edit]

  • Equip: Off-hand
  • Linked attributes: Any Monk, Necromancer, Mesmer, Elementalist, or Ritualist attribute.
  • Maximum energy: 12
  • Upgrade components: Focus Cores and inscriptions.
  • Inherent bonuses: Focus items that drop in Prophecies or Factions can have an inherent bonus rather than an inscription; these include bonuses that are not available via inscriptions (e.g. +8 armor vs. Trolls).

Energy based on requirement[edit]

Focus items only provide the full amount of energy to characters meeting the item's attribute requirement. If that prerequisite is not met, then the amount of energy provided depends on the source of the item:
