Item Generation[]

In Diablo II, each item was given a certain Item Level which was stored in a huge database in the game files. Whenever a monster is killed, the game looks at the Monster Level and the Area in which the monster was killed. Then, the game looks at the item tables and rolls an item to drop. The magical attributes are also chosen by rolling all the Magical Prefixes and Suffixes. Then, the item is dropped on the ground. When opening a chest or breaking a container, a similar procedure is carried out but using only the Area Level in the calculation. Unique and Champion monsters have a boost to their monster level. So, they have better than normal drop rates.
