A piece of equipment is considered enchanted if it spawns with additional bonuses to its base stats. These enchanted equipments can spawn randomly from chests, dropped by enemies or bought from the Scavenger and are easily identified by a colored glow around it, said glow's color varies depending on the enchantment bonus. Legendary equipment have a red glow but it's just indicative of their unique nature, not of an enchantment bonus.
The possibility of finding enchanted equipment increases in higher difficulties. In The Tower instead it increases for every block completed.
Weapons and armour increase their trash value by 5 gold for every +1 stat increase an enchantment gives. Thus, green and blue (Superb) increase 5 gold and yellow and aqua increase 10 gold, ignoring reinforcements.
See also Consecrate for the equip-altering passive and how it's affected by enchantments and weapon type.
Effect of Enchantments on Stats Edit
Enchantments only alter stats such as Attack, Defense, Speed, Faith, Intellect, Health, Magic Resistance and Damage. Weapon-type bonuses (+Backstab of Daggers) and Legendary bonuses (ex: Lovers Necklace's Auto-Charm) cannot be replicated.
Only weapons, with the exception of the Heavy Gauntlets, can get Damage bonuses. Also, higher damage weapons may receive more than +1 to max damage, possibly affecting the base damage as well (most commonly if a weapon has been repeatedly reinforced).
Also consider the following tips:
- Enchantments may raise the max damage of weapons even if said weapons have a main stat besides damage.
- Stealth is never rewarded as a bonus stat - only as an upgraded main stat on Leather Shoes, Hermes' Sandals, Cloth Shoes, Ambush Boots, or Hunter's Barb or through Consecration of a stealth weapon.
- Concerning the above: Main stats can only be buffed via blue or aqua enchantments, never by green or yellow enchantments (ex: Leather Armor cannot receive Robust or Impenetrable enchantments, but its defense can still be increased by Superb or Stalwart enchantment).
- The only exception to the above rule is green damage (Bloody) and yellow damage (Brutal) enchantments, which will increase a weapon's max damage or the Heavy Gauntlets' max damage the same way a Superb bonus may.
- The increase in damage is more than 1 on weapons with high damage.
