Item Tiers

An example of an Epic item. Notice the two intrinsic mods (to Inventory Slots and Sprint Speed) listed in white, and the four (due to its rarity tier) additional mods listed in green.

Items come in six different rarity tiers, giving them 0-5 mods (plus any intrinsic mods the base item has).

As can be seen in the illustration, the properties on high tier items can make a dramatic difference to a character's potential depending on ability specialization, from increasing damage output or the resilience of pets, to lowering the cost of spells or even increasing sprint speed !

Item Tier Properties
Common Those are common, basic items.
Uncommon One extra power, chosen as appropriate for the difficulty of the monsters.
Rare Two modifiers.
Exceptional Three modifiers.
Epic Four modifiers.
Legendary Five modifiers.

When a creature is slain, a special effect and distinctive sound indicates that there is Rare, Epic or Legendary loot on them.

It is possible for an item to reach more than 5 treasure effects. Crafted gear can be crafted as "max-enchanted". Usually the max-enchanted recipe requires an additional rare gem like
. Using the max-enchanted recipe will give the item one extra mod. For example, a second-from-the-top (Epic) tier item which normally has 4 mods would have 5 if max-enchanted. This allows an item to reach at most 6 modifiers upon being crafted (in the case that it is Legendary). Augmentation (or Shamanic Infusion) can add one more to reach the upper limit of 7 (looted gear, which can't be max-enchanted, can only reach 6 at most).


Finding loot in Project: Gorgon is exciting because the game uses a "random treasure" system which is more commonly found in ARPG games. Players can occasionally strike gold with an amazing, game-balance-destroying item every now and again.[1]

For instance, if you’re an Unarmed fighter, you’ll love gauntlets that make your Punch attack heal you. You punch a lot, so that’s a huge power boost and very noticeable. On the other hand, you may prefer gauntlets that cause your Punch to do extra damage, or that cause your Cobra Strike to stun more reliably. But an amazing pair of gauntlets would do all three things.

Augments come in levels. For instance, the first tier of Health-Enchantment gives you +5 max health. The next tier gives you +10 health. And so on.

Here are a few examples of augments currently found in alpha:

<ability> attacks heals you for 120
<ability> causes your Sprint speed to increase by 10 for 10 seconds
<ability> also restores 30 armor to you
<ability> removes ongoing Poison effects (up to 30 dmg/sec)

Stacking Effects

All augments, flat or percent damage increase, stack. Augments with a chance to proc each roll their chances and may proc separately.

How Skill Augments Apply

Skill augments such as "Scintillating Flame restores 20 Power" work as long as the item is equipped, irrelevant if the item's associated skill is currently in use. So for example if the aforementioned mod was on a Bow, but you do not have "Archery" active, the mod still applies if you have Fire Magic in use.

Gear and Equipment Types

Main hand
Off hand
Orb : Orbs tend to have an augment that reduces the Power Cost of abilities up to -25%
Bow : Of notice, Critical Damage % that comes with Anatomy skills appear to work only for Bows.
Navel Gem

Legacy Information

Treasure Generation

  • "In October 2016, the dev. changed the gear system to make single skill gear legacy. Now gear is two skill gear or one skill with generics."

Lucky Belts

Lucky Belts used to attune the random-treasure system to specific skills. Wearing the proper belt made it so that the loot you find was much more likely to enhance your choice of primary and secondary skills. This feature was changed in the 2015-12-06 patch. See the Belt article for more historical information.
