Prefix bonuses relate to two things: item durability and magic bonus. The weapon with a higher durability prefix will last longer in combat. For example, an indestructible weapon will last longer than a tempered weapon. If the weapon has a skill bonus on it, the prefix refers to how much of the bonus you get. For example, a rugged mace of macefighting gives a +6 bonus to macefighting.
- Note: an indestructible weapon does not mean it is indestructible. It is just a description.
