Diablo 2 Crafted Items

In addition to everything you can do in Diablo 2 there is also available craft. You can learn how to get the exact modifiers on the desired items in this guide.

First of all, you need to understand that Crafted items cannot be dropped or gambled, you will need to make (craft) them yourself. For that, you will need the Horadric Cube and knowledge of the recipes that we provide below. When you craft an item you will see the crafted modifiers coloured in orange. Also, their names will be constructed, like rare items. They have semi-random stats. Each is tied directly to the recipe used to make it, and that recipe will always produce an item of that type, with stats from the same allowed mods.

Crafted Items are not all identical like Uniques, and they are not totally random, like Rares. Instead, each Crafted Item recipe will always produce an item with from 1-4 preset modifiers, and 1-4 random modifiers. So you could end up with an item that had fixed properties and a couple of other junk mods, or up to four other top-quality mods, including mods, meant only to spawn on magic quality (blue) items. Bonuses stack as well, making it truly impressive.

One of the best aspects of Crafted Items is that their preset mods are often things that magical and rare items can never have, such as Deadly Strike, Open Wounds, Fire Absorb, Demon Heal, and many more. You can also get modifiers that aren’t otherwise possible on a particular item type, life leech on Boots, damage reduction on Gloves, faster cast rate on Belts, and many more.

All Crafted items can have from 1-4 random affixes. These mods will be the ones allowed on Rare items, not the bigger magic-only mods. The maximum ilvl of affixes for random mods is determined by the Clvl of the character executing the recipe, by the following formula:

  • At ilvls 1-30, there’s a 40% chance of 1 affix and a 20% chance each of 2, 3 or 4 affixes.
  • At ilvls 31-50, there’s a 60% chance of 2 affixes and a 20% chance each of 3 or 4 affixes.
  • At ilvls 51-70, there’s an 80% chance of 3 affixes and a 20% chance of 4 affixes.
  • At ilvls 71+, there’s a 100% chance of 4 affixes.

You can use any quality of the ingredients unless otherwise stated. Some recipes require a specific Elite item, others require a rare item of exactly the correct type, while other recipes are more lenient and allow just about any item of the correct type. There are some weapon recipes that will allow any weapon in the entire game. You must use a perfect one for all recipes that require a gem. Crafted recipes are basically semi-random imbues of the item you use in the recipe, so you want to get the biggest damage weapon or high defense armor, and Superior as well, if possible, since the superior is preserved on the item, unlike with Charsi Imbues.

When you Craft an item it loses all of its original Magical Prefixes/Suffixes. Staffmods, automods, affixes, sockets and/or etherealness on the item you use to make the crafted item are irrelevant and are erased when the mods for the crafted item are rolled. When a magical/Rare/Crafted item is used in the recipe, the stats on it are erased when the crafted pre-set and random mods are applied.

The Level Requirement of crafted items will be higher than that of a rare item even if they have the same random prefixes/suffixes. The basis for the calculation of the affix level is the item level. The ilvl of a Crafted Item is equal to half the level of the crafting character (rounded down) plus half the ilvl of the input item (rounded down) and is capped at 99.

You can put a crafted item into the socketing quest in Act Five and get 1 socket added only, same as Rare, Unique, and Set items.

Recipes

Generally speaking, the recipes are a mixture of items, with usually something magical, a perfect gem, a jewel, and a rune. Crafted items come in distinct types; Caster, Blood, Hit Power and Safety are a few common types, where there are many types of weapons, armor, and jewelry with similar properties.

In the section below you will see recipes and what they do. The list below shows what exactly lines from the recipes referred to:

  • Name
  • Ingredients
  • Fixed Effects

You can see that we have designed them the same way as in the list below. Meaning that first comes the name of the crafted item, followed by required ingredients, which ends up with the list of guaranteed effects that you get on the item. Remember that in addition to them (Fixed Effects) you will also get 1-4 random modifiers.

The Crafted Recipe did not work: Make sure you use a Magic item, if it says Magic. Make sure you use the correct item type. If it’s looking for a Belt, it’s looking for the specific item “Belt” not any kind of Belt. The Runes are always certain ones, not just any Rune. It doesn’t matter if the jewel is magic, rare, or even unique. There are specific weapon recipes, where only one particular weapon, like a Grim Wand or a Colossus Crossbow, will work with the exact required Runes and other ingredients. All of these weapons have very similar preset mods. There are also class-items, which can only be made by a particular class.
