Default Moster Infrequent Items Should have own color

Like orange maybe. Seems like a simple change, and would be a great way to know you have found one.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, coloring MIs will never work because MIs can be yellow, green, blue, or purple currently depending on who drops them and what affixes they spawn with. You would lose so much information if they were changed to be all the same color.

Put a coloured border, or a symbol in one corner.

I definitely would like this. I do like the change in the expansion of having two varieties of each MI (added) that are both powerful rather than 1 powerful and 1 not really powerful. Having one powerful and one not powerful only makes it harder to learn which MIs you want to look for. And why add 'special' items (unpowerful MI's) that are just vendor trash?

I already asked Zantai about this and he said the color won't change. I'd be up for a symbol of some sort though in the tooltip box...

I have never seen a yellow MI, MI is enough to make something green. Blue and Purple MIs will be looked at and judged for whatever they are, being MI is irrelevant for them apart from knowing what you need to kill if you already know you want it.

So greens are the only ones at issue and it is kinda annoying because you end up seeing green items with crappy MI stats and one magic property which at L70 sell for a couple of hundred iron and were not worth picking up. It is also annoying because MIs with good mods are the best rares in the game and some of the best items period. I would like to see 'green' MIs change color, especially as they are going to be better and rarer.

yellow MI's are all over the place. Go to the blood grove, kill some bloodsworn, and turn on your magic filter if you want to find dozens of magic MI's in the span of a few minutes. Bloodsworn pistols, Bloodsworn wands, and Groble idols are all extremely common yellow MI's. Their rare counterparts (Repeaters instead of pistols, Scepters instead of wands, and Effigies instead of idols) are usually green though.

The wiki doesn't list any of those as MIs. Maybe the clue is in the name, dozens in a few minutes isn't infrequent.

I don't think anything it lists is blue or purple either. MIs are things that are green because they are MI's and would be better not confused with things that are green because they have rare mods.

I suggested a long time ago the MI name like "Bloodsworn Repeater" could be green because it is MI and affixes could be green/yellow for rare/magic. Perhaps as an option because it would look rather busy.
