The upcoming version update will usher in the "Augments" system, a new feature that will shatter your preconceptions about equipment and breathe new life into some of your most treasured pieces of armor.

Any veteran adventurer knows the feeling:
A beloved breastplate that served you in countless epic battles...
A cherished cuirass that fended off many a vicious enemy blow...
Equipment once treasured, now auctioned off for a purseful of gil or relegated to a dank, lonely corner of your Mog House in favor of more potent apparel better suited to your burgeoning abilities.
What could be done to give these items a longer lease on life? This is the question we asked ourselves, and in the next version update, you can experience the answer—the new Augments system!

O_O add stats to junk!

Cant get that uber piece of gear, add something to what you have and call it close enough >.>

Good idea, its hard to find mid level gear on AH sometimes.

Kat always complaining about gimped players, so that ends that. :D

Mmmm, maybe not. Now I get to complain about the people who augment with stupid stats, and you know there will be plenty of it.

They will be henceforth known as an "auggy" or "auggies" as in "I'm in this Lv64 party, and this stupid auggy DRG has CHR on his beetle harness".

Or this:

Anyone taking the left path is a dirty filthy auggy.


































F@#$in' Auggies.. :lol:

This is just a guess, but perhaps you can only augment stuff that currently has no stats on it (though sure I'd like to add 5% haste to a hauberk :p) . That and something like haste would probably require an item dropped from some nasty alliance-destroying bad dude.

Maybe aimed towards mid levels like derz's comment, where there isnt alot of interesting stuff so people wear that Iron scale mail cuz it looks cool.

We shall see

ima put agi and vit(or chr) on everything so can sam/dnc eva tank more crap! muhaahaahaaa.

sorta laughed at the red "Aug" symbol on the item.

also laughed at how its sorta an item enhance system you see in some games(mmos), and im gonna laugh if the system works out like this:

npc method:
trade npc
gear + gem(lolenhancing) + fee(gil or special item)= auged gear
funny thing with that is like how the rings are with the gems, red rock for example goldsmithing can turn it into NQ:Sardonyx
HQ 1: Garnet
HQ 2: Sunstone
HQ 3: Ruby
and the rings made from those give str+ 1, 2, 3, 4 respectivly and an extra +1 if HQed anyways
my point being using certian gems to enhance items would make me laugh.....and also make goldsmiths richer >_>......

another method would be crafting it:
like take any craft that can make their respective armor then
crystal synth, gear + gem/special item = auged gear
eg bonecraft: earth crys synth, scorp harness + ruby = scorp harness with str+ lol

just my speculations, but with the way SE does things I think its gonna be something close to the npc method.....and after you trade it in you have to wait until jp midnight or better yet the next conquest update for your auged gear lawl.
and even tho its just my speculations....i have a sudden urge to stock up on certian *cough*gems*cough* cause i forsee some price hikes in the near future(even tho price hikes always occur with each update)

sounds like some of the not so appealing gear are going to get some love now... but also this sounds like I'll need to spend more money and replace some old stuff :/

I'm not sure if I'm on board with this yet.....I just hope it doesn't make all my gear I've spent a lot of time collecting completely obsolete.

Amen. This is exactly how I feel.

If they completely ruin the prestige of the equipment I've worked so hard to attain, I could see me being pissed off enough to cancel my subscription.

While this sounds interesting to say the least, there are fresh ideas, and then there are unnecessary tweaks. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it... and this wasn't broken.

I doubt it'll be applicable to rare/ex stuff, so the current best things will remain such.

I also wouldn't mind putting some accuracy on my ogre gear pieces.
