    Default Guide to Augmentation of Epic Items

    First you find a normal version of the item, then you collect three objects in epic dungeons to upgrade the item.

    If, say, you want an epic Bloodstone, you'll need to get a Bloodstone, kill epic monsters to get a Scroll of the Bloodstone (or buy one on the auction house), and loot chests for a Seal of the Bloodstone and a Shard of the Bloodstone. Once you have all of those, you can upgrade your Bloodstone to the epic version of the item.

    Collect the three upgrade items and hit "blend" in the Epic Eldritch Device.

    Upgrading an item does increase its minimum level to 20.

    Scrolls drop similar to collectable bags and can be freely traded. Seals and Shards are bound to account (though can be traded normally in the chest). All of them stack and count as "Ingredients".

    In general, red is for weapons, blue is for armors, and yellow is for accessories. There are also green, purple, and orange augment slots - these allow your choice of the two colors that make up that color. (A green augment slots would permit either a blue or yellow augment crystal.)

    Colorless crystals can go into any color slot.

    If you have a purple augment slot, and want to put a blue augment crystal into it, you need a purple catalyst.

    Some items have multiple slots, and the catalysts let us know which slot you want to put the crystal in. The Wolf Whistle, for instance, has a Yellow and a Colorless slot. If you're putting a +1 Exceptional Dexterity crystal into it, it could go into either one.

    Most items have only one augment slot. Two handed weapons often have two. Extremely powerful items might have none.

    Crystals are permanent modifications to the item, so choose what to add very carefully.


    Once in the 12, open your map and look for the Epic Crafting Altar. next to it you will find a vendor that will, for the right price, sell you epic updrades augments. They come in various colors, and cost varying prices.

    So my question is if Violet just means either Blue or Red, then why does the description say, Violet, Blue, Red or Colorless. It is most likely that it was lazy typing by the person who did the description.

    However, it could be implying that you can somehow combine a red and blue augment crystal into a violet one before applying it to the shield. Similar but not exactly like a dual shard item.

    Perhaps it is possible to get both a blue and a red effect on this shield? (How about adding both a plus 7 enhancement bonus and natrual armor 4 to this shield......nice.)

    Added some notes from Devs that maybe clarify your questions.

    They already do. A Dream Stealer (looks like a wraith) is DR 10/Good or Glass or Crystal. Worthless to put that on your weapon...

    Is it possible to know the colour of the slots of each item? For example, is the colour of bloodstone yellow or colourless?

    Say you want +6 str on an item. How do you determine you are getting str and not another stat?

    You buy specific upgrades from Misty next to the altar. She has a full list of them and you just choose the one you want.

    Question on the Blue that adds +2 Max Dex bonus to armor...that doesn't make medium to light or heavy to medium like mithril does, it's just the Dex bonus is changed and thats it? Got the Meradith Chain n all, love it but am a Ranger and sucks taking a hit on my evasions. Was wondering it that +2 Dex would make it a light armor as most + Dex bonus items tend to become.

    Having a way to make Epic Maralith Chain light armor would be incredible, but alas there is not.

    Quick question, does the spell focus bonus stack with other bonuses? Such as a necormany scepter for necromancy? I was hoping it was a feat effect, but I have my doubts.
