I've found various colored items in Dungeon Siege 3, I assume they denote some sort of rarity scale. Does anyone have a list of these various item types/ranks that can be found?
There are three colors corresponding to randomly generated loot:
Generally, the rarer the item, the better attributes it has.
There's an additional color, orange/brown, which corresponds to artifacts. Artifacts are unique items that are not randomly generated: they always have the same statistics and are always located in the same place.
