So I just finished reading the post on how to identify steam items and from what I understand, as long as the contextid doesn't change when one user trades an item to another user, the classid should ALWAYS remain the same? If so, is the classid all that is needed to identify the item in that case?

Classids can change whenever they want.

Classids can change whenever they want.

But I tested if out with Rust items, and the same type of items had identical classids even if they were in different inventories. Does that mean classids are enough to identify a Rust item?

EDIT: Did some more research, classid seems to be the same for all items with the same descriptions, so in Rust's case I don't think the description can be changed by the user and so there should technically be only 1 unique classid for each type of item. Am I understanding this right?

That's generally true, but you'll probably come across some item someday with a different classid and it will break all your stuff.
