Diablo 2: Resurrected constantly gives you an avalanche of items as you play. Most of the items you’ll collect are gear or potions of varying quality or rarity, while others are quest-specific items you’ll need to progress. Knowing what’s what will save you a lot of time and space in your inventory.

In this Diablo 2 items and quest items guide, we’ll teach you all about items and their rarities, and help you find the locations of all quest items.

Diablo 2 item types

You’ll find the following items everywhere:

  • Weapons are self-explanatory. This includes all of the melee, ranged, and throwing weapons, including some that are class specific.
  • Armor and other wearables for your character’s head, chest, hands, feet, belt, two rings, one amulet, and any shield you want to equip.
  • Tomes and scrolls are magic items any class can use. These are Scrolls of Identify and Town Portal. A tome holds 20 scrolls, saving you a ton of space in your inventory.
  • Potions cover healing, mana, rejuvenation, and stamina potions, as well as offensive (thrown) potions like strangling gas or fulminating potions.
  • Gems, jewels, and runes are buffs that get socketed into weapons or armor.

Diablo 2 rarities

Items in Diablo 2 have a few overlapping rarities associated with them.

First is quality:

  • Low quality items are described as crude, cracked, or damaged. These items have slightly reduced stats.
  • Normal quality items are exactly what they say they are.
  • Rare items are even better versions of normal quality items.

On top of quality, you’ll also find magic items — items that have additional stats like fire resistance or lightning damage.

  • Magic items are the basic version of these.
  • Rare items have additional qualities beyond regular magic items.

Diablo 2 quest items

Throughout Diablo 2: Resurrected, you’ll need to collect certain items to progress through the story and specific quests.

Act 1 quest items and locations

There are two quest items in Diablo 2’s Act 1 tied to the “The Search for Cain” and “Tools of the Trade” quests.

  • The Scroll of Inifuss is found at the Tree of Inifuss in the Dark Wood. You’ll need this quest item as part of the “The Search for Cain” quest. Once you find it, you’ll need to take the scroll back to the Rogue Encampment, and then head to the Cairn Stones in the Stony Field area to you use it.
  • The Horadric Malus is held by The Smith in the Monastery Barracks near the end of the act. You’ll need this to complete the “Tools of the Trade” quest.
