"Ego" items get a +25% bonus to damage, armor or defense for weapons, protective gear and shields respectively.
Some Ego weapons (mostly Elite/orange items) also have one or more +200% damage boni in place that would only apply to specific enemy types.
So maybe there's an axe named Orc Splitter that's an Ego item : In this example, that particular axe would have both a +25% bonus to damage and a +200% bonus to damage when it's swung against any type of Orc. Other Ego items may be cursed, which means instead of a +200% damage bonus against certain monsters, they get a -200% damage penalty.
