15. Quality Items

These recipes produce currency items that improve the quality of their category of items. To produce the currency requires either one of the following:

  • A single normal item (not magic, rare, etc.) of that category with 20% quality;
  • Several items (any rarity) of that category with a total of at least 40% quality.

When done for multiple instances of the recipe at once, each individual combination must add up to 40%. For example: 6 items of 19%, 13%, 15%, 9%, 17% and 7% quality would add up to 80%, but would not actually grant 2 of the resulting quality items, only 1. This is because the 2 individual combinations do not add up to 40 each.

The type of currency produced depends on the item with the lowest item level in the set, and the quantity on whether they are all unidentified and/or 20% quality:
