Factions

[edit] General inscriptions

The following is a list of inscriptions that can be applied to any equippable item.

Icon Name Enhancement
Equippable Items "Measure for Measure" 1 Highly salvageable
"Show me the money!" 2 Improved sale value (+50..75Gold)
1 This inscription only affects dropped weapons, i.e. it will not allow you to salvage an otherwise unsalvageable item (e.g. from a weaponsmith, collector, or as a reward).
2 This inscription only affects the items which have a merchant value. Like other inscriptions it has a set value (that is not displayed on the inscription):
"Show me the money!" inscriptions add up to 62Gold of extra value to "blue" items; up to 70Gold to "purple" items; and up to 75Gold for "gold" items.

[edit] Notes

  • You cannot purchase inscriptions from NPCs.
  • In inscribable items, the inscription takes the place of the inherent mod on martial weapons and staves and one of the two inherent mods on wands, shields, and focus items.
  • An inscription can be identified to improve its merchant value of 25Gold.
    • There are no traders for inscriptions.
  • Regarding "Show Me the Money!" inscriptions:
    • Each of these inscriptions provides the same increase in value to any item to which it is applied.
    • If identified, the salvaged inscription's merchant value increases, scaling upwards from 100g, making it more profitable to salvage the inscription from any item which has an identified merchant value of less than 100g.
  • You can replace the inscriptions on Destroyer and Tormented martial weapons and staves.
  • You can obtain specific weapons with empty inscription slots from these sources:
Anomaly Anomaly.An extremely small number of weapons in circulation carry an inherent inscription and an inscription slot. Currently, all known exploits or game errors that produced them have been resolved.

[edit] Trivia

  • The inscription trivia article lists community identified trivia for the above inscriptions.
  • Inscriptions were introduced with Nightfall in October 2006.
