Drakensang: Magic Items Guide 2021

A guide detailing the effects of the various magic items present in the game and listing all the steps necessary to obtain them.

 

Introduction

Hello adventurers and welcome to this humble guide! Drakensang is a classic fantasy RPG and as such expect there will be items enchanted with powerful magic scattered around the world. In the following paragraphs I will try to explain the importance of certain magic items within the game and list all the necessary steps you will have to make in order to get them. In addition for each item I will specify the classes/party roles that benefit the most from them. In this guide I will not record the exact numerical and technical bonuses of such items but rather give the reader a generic idea of what their powers are. I will also not tell you how to get the Armor of Fire as you will collect its pieces by simply following the main questline.

Disclaimer: Although I finished the game several times clearing the vast majority of quests available, it’s still very possible that I missed some and with that the magic items potentially tied to them. Also there may be multiple ways you can obtain the same item and I may not know them all. The game is vast and there might be secrets I have yet to uncover but this guide should be enough to equip all members of your party with enchanted artifacts.
One final note: as much as I will try to keep things as vague as possible, this guide will inevitably contain some kind of spoilers for the game!

But without further ado let’s get you some magic items, shall we?

Magic Items Types

In Drakensang there are different types of magic items: weapons, armors, rings and amulets, miscellaneous. While enchanted weapons and armors are pretty rare, magic rings and amulets are more common and some can be easily bought from merchants. Miscellaneous magic items are more situational as they usually boost specific talents.

Rings
