Equipment Basics

There are many different Item Types in The Infinite Black.

The power of items are determined by their rank and Item Rarity.

  • Ranks determine the size and power of any given item class.
    • a common Auto Cannon I weapon is smaller and less powerful than a common Auto Cannon II.
  • There are 30 different ranks for all types of Weapons, Armor, and Storage.
  • Each item Rank increases its size by 1.
  • Item ranks allow you to be flexible with your equipment setup for your ships.
  • Some item types, such as Computers and Specials are ranked by ship types.
    • These items have a size of 0, and can be used without sacrificing EquipPoints that would otherwise go to weapons, armor, and storage.
    • The abilities of computers and specials of the same class do not change when the ship type is different.
  • Item Rarity also increases the power of items.
  • Improving rarity increases an item's stats more than ranking it.
  • Each time Rarity is increased, the size of the item is reduced by 1.
    • a common Auto Cannon I has a size of 1, but an uncommon Auto Cannon I has a size of 0 and has much better stats overall.
  • The rarer an item is, the higher the level required to equip it.
  • As long as an item is not "common" its rank and rarity can be manipulated with planetary Engineering.

Item Durability

All items have Durability. Durability represents the state of damage done to that item.

Loss of item durability is the major penalty for Dying in The Infinite Black.

  • Dying to an NPC reduces durability on all equipped items by 5% each.
  • Being killed in PvP to another player reduces durability on all equipped items by 10% each.
    • If you are killed by an NPC with an Enemy Player in the sector, it counts as a PVP death.
  • If an item is under 25% durability, it can be stolen by another player by Item Theft when you die.
  • Items that are not "common" rarity can be repaired using planetary Engineering.
