An item's rarity represents its overall quality. The higher the rarity, the better the stats it will have and the more powerful it will be. There are seven item rarities.
As an item of any given type increases in rarity, its overall size will also decrease, giving you "more bang for your buck." However, an item's overall size cannot go below 0.
You can increase an item's rarity using Engineering.
Items are color-coded based on Rarity. Items also have level restrictions based on their rarity.
