Identifying Magic Items


Once a magic item is discovered, the identify spell is the fastest way to reveal an item’s properties. Experimenting with the item over time will also eventually reveal its properties to a wielder.

Those who are proficient in Arcana may also attempt to identify an item’s properties, with the following provisions:

  1. A user can make a check to see if they can generally identify the item, with an increasing difficulty based on the rarity of the item.
  2. This study can be repeated every hour till the item is identified.
  3. This will not identify any curses.

At the DM’s option, Religion or History may be substituted for Arcana to identify some items.

Any item that requires attunement successfully identified through whatever means may then be attuned to during a long rest.
