Baldur's Gate 2 Arcanum Wizardry 8 The Longest Journey Riven Myst 3 Exile

Worlds of Xeen Magic Item Spoilers

This is a chart I originally made when Clouds of Xeen first came out a decade ago, but as far as I know nothing has changed. (-: Basically, a magic item in Xeen can have only one magic trait, identified in the form of an adjective. The same adjective will always denote the same bonus. There are four basic classes of magic traits Xeen items can have: combat bonuses, stat bonuses, elemental bonuses, and spell charges.

Items With Combat Bonuses

These adjectives all have to do with the material the object is made out of. For armor, the material affects a character's armor class (defense), and for weapons, the material affects his or her to-hit and damage scores (how likely the character is to hit an opponent and how much damage he will inflict, respectively). You can also find accessories made of these materials, but they are all useless, conferring no benefit--just sell them for money.

Elemental objects have different effects depending on the type of item. Armor and accessories confer an elemental resistance, whereas weapons get a damage bonus of the same elemental type.
