Elysis is a top-down action-adventure game with a focus on combat and exploration. Unique to the game is the addon item system in which your standard weapon can be upgraded to have different effects. Swords that shoot out energy beams, boomerangs that you control with your mind, explosive magic arrows, a ball and chain that sprays fire out everywhere. Combine addons and powerups to create devastating weapons fit to your playstyle to take out a large variety of enemies.

So basically, for all the items I have so far, I can group into three main categories: main weapons, sub weapons and miscellaneous items. The main weapons are your melee weapons, swords and the like. The sub weapons are like the various tools you find in typical zelda games; like the shield, bow, bomb bag etc. Then I have the miscellaneous items which, when equipped, can have an effect on your main or sub weapons (passive), or be used as a consumable, something like using a potion or placing a torch down (active).
Here are some examples of the passive items and how they effect the Main/Sub weapons.
This is it with the Quiver. The shooting speed is faster.
This effect is much more noticeable with the TriShot item equipped.
Here are some regular bombs.
These bombs are coated with the RedVulsin item.
Regular sword swings.
Sword swings with the FocusBracelet on.
Here’s an active item effect where you can place a torch.
