Recently, item artwork got a makeover! Several armor items have been updated, with more to follow soon. Read on to find out more about this. New citizens can also find a few handy tips about item tiers and rarities below.
As many armor items got a dedicated 3D image to replace the placeholders used before, we would like to use this opportunity to show some high resolution versions, but also to explain game mechanics to our new citizens. Welcome to Tau Station!
Item tiers & rarities
Items of various rarities have been updated. For new citizens, it’s useful to remember that item rarity is color-coded with a square border around the item image. White indicates a common item, green is uncommon, blue is rare and purple indicates an epic item, of very high quality or value.
Don’t forget that your levels are grouped into tiers, with each tier representing 5 levels. Tier 1 covers citizens of level 1-5; those of you who are level 6-10 are tier 2, and so on. Every time you increase your tier, market vendors will change their offer to you. You’ll now be presented with items corresponding to your new tier.
The public market is slightly different; here you can buy items of any tier (but remember, you can still only use those matching your tier and below). An info icon highlights all public market items which exceed your current tier.
Enjoy the new art
