Dungeon crawlers like Minecraft Dungeons have a big focus on getting the best gear available.
In this game, the most sought after gear are the unique items, which give you additional abilities in addition to their regular weapon type stats. These are the most desirable and some are key to making some highly damaging builds!
Minecraft Dungeons unique items guide
To explain what unique items are in Minecraft Dungeons, we will first need to explain how item rarity works in the game.
After that we can get onto the tasty main course that is the full list of Minecraft Dungeons unique items available in the game. This includes unique items found in levels on Adventurer and Apocalypse difficulty.
Whether they are weapons, armour, or even artifacts, all items have a rarity assigned to them.
Rarity indicates the quality of the item that you have picked up, but the only meaningful difference between common and rate items are the amount of emeralds you get for salvaging them.
This is one of the most efficient ways to get more emeralds, but there are other methods that are better for the early game. Check out our Minecraft Dungeons emeralds for more on that.
Below are all of the known item rarities in Minecraft Dungeons:
- Common: White
- Rare: Turquoise
- Unique: Orange
Now that I’ve explained what rarity is, let’s talk about unique items. These are the best types of gear to find in the game and the ones that will likely be the most sought after. You can find unique items at any point in the game as random drops from defeating enemies or as rewards for opening chests.
They’re variations on regular weapons and armour, so you will see the same stats in the inventory screen as you would if you picked up a standard version of the same weapon. The only difference is that unique items have an additional ability.
For example, if you picked up a Diamond Pickaxe, it will have the same base stats as a regular pickaxe of the same power level, but it will also have the ability to find more emeralds. The list below contains all of the unique items in Minecraft Dungeons discovered so far, and will include all the unique effects.
