Rarity describes both the relative rarity of finding a particular item and is an expression of its quality. Each level has a name and color associated with it:
- Common - Gray
- Uncommon - Green
- Rare - Blue
- Epic - Purple
- Legendary - Orange
- Mythic - Gold
At base level, an Uncommon item will always be better than a Common item of the same type and a Rare item will always be better than an Uncommon one and so on.
Note: Mythic rarity are a separate tier from the common -> legendary. Every Mythic hero does not have a lower tier, and Mythic lead Survivors are classified in the Collection Book as "Unique Leads". Unlike the rest of the leads they have a name and a small flavor text.
