Here's something that would be nice: Little colored dots next to item icons in the Auction House that let you know, without having to mouse over, what augment slots the item has. Doesn't have to tell you if they're filled or empty, just if they're present. That way if I'm, hypothetically, searching for any cheap pair of gloves that have a yellow slot as a base for crafting, it's much simpler to find what I'm looking for.

Yeah this is probably on the Top 10 Most Popular current requests...itd be even more useful for weapons, not only for crafting blanks, but also just because (especially with the affix homogenization since U19) red slots are often the only thing separating a decent weapon from the same junk you get in every chest and reward list...

Current workaround: I've found a lot of people will disjunct their item prior to posting on the AH, so you can just search for L1 items with the default name (eg "Gloves"), and they'll likely have one or two augment slots.

I have to agree this would be incredible! Just little colored dots showing the augment slots on the item would be great.

if possible, it would be nice if you could click a checkbox on the search portion of the AH relating to the color you're looking for. Currently there is no way to search or narrow the list based on augments. Everything else changes the title of the item somewhat, so you can at least do a quick search that way even if you have to go through a few pages of items (such as with the Speed property).

Any of these solutions, yes, please!

Oh, I should point out, I have lots of Turbine Points I want to spend on augments in the DDO Store. (Easiest for me). But I CAN'T because I can't find augment gear for the slots.

So, in effect, this is hurting DDO Store sales, for me at least.

(Sorry I'm not using the "Edit" button. It's not working for me.)

Or, another solution would be to add the color to the item name. Say for instance we have a Wise +6 Necklace with a Green and a Yellow augment slot. Rename the item to "+6 Necklace (Green) (Yellow)". Or even "Green and Yellow Wise +6 Necklace".

Something as simple as that would enable the already built in search feature of the AH to work for us.
