Passives are extra effects that appear on the higher rarity Items in the game. The Passive mechanic has since been removed from the game since the Trials Update, along with Skill Spheres, and replaced with Shards.
Passives give your Heroes unique effects while the Item is equipped. Each type of Item (Weapon, Helm, Body Armor, Gloves, Boots, Relic) has a specific list of Passives that can appear on them. Items can have a mix of global and Hero specific Passives, but an Item will only drop with Hero specific Passives from one of the Hero types.
- A Powerful (Green) Item will have 0 Passives.
- An Epic (Blue) Item will have 2 Passives.
- A Mythical (Purple) Item will have 2 Passives.
- A Legendary (Orange) Item will have 3 Passives.
