Equipment

Uniques

Unique items, as their name describes, are those that can only be acquired in one way. Like Legendaries, all of them have the red flavor text in their descriptions, but unlike the former, they can be of any rarity color (except for white, of course). A majority of the unique pieces of equipment can be gotten as drops from enemies or as rewards for finishing missions.
