Staffmods (Diablo II)

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A Staffmod, sometimes called an Automod, is a modifier that can spawn on class-specific items, providing additional bonuses to the item. Staffmods can spawn on normal, superior, ethereal, socketed, magic, and rare items, but do not occur on set or unique items. Some of the bonuses staffmods provide to an item are the same as if the item had a magical affix, but the affix name is not shown on the item, and the bonus(es) occur independently of affix bonuses. However, if the bonuses from a staffmod and a regular affix overlap each other, they will stack. Although these mods carry level requirements with them, these requirements are not applied to non-magical items. Staffmods are chosen for an item at random, based on the Quality Level of the item. Individual skill bonus staffmods will not always spawn; other staffmods will always be present.
