Spells are separated into Defensive or Offensive categories to identify the nature of the effects.
Guests are separated by the type of resource it consumes, Calls are Sp and Summons are Mp.
Multielement category items have numbers from 1 to 8 behind the decimal associated with the element category in numerical order to be identified by, items of eight elements or more will be without numbers.

Pets are separated into Defensive or Offensive categories depending on the nature of the effect and available actions. Stun pets are useful against multielementals with normal or higher resistance, they protect the player better than multiplicative resistance misc given three elements and above.
Multielement category items have numbers from 1 to 8 behind the decimal associated with the element category in numerical order to be identified by, items of eight elements or more will be without numbers.

Pets released from February 17, 2012 backwards are separated into standard pets whose attack rate is not determined by Cha, while Beastmaster pets have lower attack rates than the Training Difficulty value tied to a specific raised attack rate, this Beastmaster category was discontinued after the said date.
Starting from April 23, 2017 pets are able to Lucky Strike.

Miscs are alternative Defensive and/or Offensive items to consume resources like skills and spells, starts as inefficient and surpasses Skill in efficiency at Level 40, Guests after Level 80 unless the item treats a built in attack as a skill.

Subtractive -Resist miscs were discontinued after September 26, 2013 are stronger once armor and shield resistance reaches as threshold, -10% for an example at 19% is 52.63%, while multiplicative *Resist misc released as of October 17, 2013 onwards stop at 50%.
As a reminder to evaluate the shelf life value of your purchases, Urn of Daryngord and Everfrozen Shard are less expensive and more powerful options than Marks of Lorian Deities, but carries the risk of being updated into a Dual multiplicative 50% Resist with unsustainable upkeep like Trophy of Enthusiasm in the future.

Miscs from March 18, 2014 backwards had multiplicative *1+.Boost damage boost, this standard was discontinued as the stacking of increasing number of such boosts inflated the end result to a high value making battles easier than intended.
Starting from April 1, 2014 damage boosts are additive *1+(.Boost+with other additive .boost), though the interaction between additive and multiplicative boosts remain multiplicative.
