Experimental Item And Experimental Affix: Slotted Item?

Experimental Items initially resemble Magic, Rare, or Exalted items.

However, they possess a unique affix exclusive to items obtained from defeating Exiled Mages, unavailable through conventional crafting methods.

These unique experimental affixes exclusively appear on items designed for Boots, Belts, and Gloves.

Experimental Affix is pocketed with Experimental Item which can be equipped upon the death of Exiled Mages.

While the experimental affixes may seem insignificant during the leveling phase, experimental items gain significant power in endgame content.

The primary reason for their potency lies in the endgame crafting options, notably the Rune of Research.

You can permanently bind an experimental affix by embedding this rune into your item, thereby freeing up a valuable affix slot.

However, expert crafters can even get experimental affixes on legendary gear with the right crafting methods.
