    Default Sneak Peek: Augment Slots!

    Today we wanted to give you a sneak peek of one of the upcoming features in Update 17: Augment Slots! This is a new system that allows further customization of your equipment. An item with an augment slot can have an Augment placed in it. A slotted Augment bestows an additional effect to the item for as long as it is slotted.

    Augment slots will be introduced on some new named items, and randomly generated items have a 5% chance of having an augment slot.

    Augment Slots will appear in one of seven different colors:

    • Colorless Augment Slots can only hold Colorless Augments. Colorless Augment Slots can be found in any type of item.
    • Red Augment Slots can hold Colorless or Red Augments. Red Augment Slots can only be found on Weapons, Shields, or other hand-held items.
    • Blue Augment Slots can hold Colorless or Blue Augments. Blue Augment Slots can only be found in Armor, Robes, Outfits, Shields, or other off-hand items.
    • Yellow Augment Slots can hold Colorless or Yellow Augments. Yellow Augment Slots can only be found on Accessory items. (Ring, Neck, Boots, Belt, Gloves, Eyewear, Helmet, Bracers, Cloak, Trinket)
    • Purple Augment Slots can hold Colorless, Blue, or Red Augments. Purple Augment Slots can only be found on named Weapons, Shields, or other hand-held items.
    • Orange Augment Slots can hold Colorless, Red, or Yellow Augments. Orange Augment Slots can only be found on named Weapons, Shields, or other hand-held items.
    • Green Augment Slots can hold Colorless, Blue, or Yellow Augments. Green Augment Slots can only be found on named Armor, Robes, Outfits, or Accessory items.

    This system will replace the two existing augment systems- Epic Augments, and Guild Augments. Existing guild augment slots and the guild augment vendors will remain, but new items won’t have guild augment slots after Update 17.

    The Mechanics of Augmentation:

    To use an Augment, double-click on it from your inventory.
    Then, a barter-shop style window specific to that augment will appear on screen.

    Place the item you want to augment (which needs to have an appropriate slot), select the slot to place the augment in, and hit the “Augment!” button. (You need to select the recipe even if there’s only one slot available.)

    Your item gains that Augment's effect.

    At any point, you can replace the augment you have slotted by placing a new one in the same slot. New augments overwrite old augments, and you don’t get the old augment back.

    Every augment has an associated level requirement to use it. The common (non-named) augments move up in increments of 4 levels at a time: 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24.
    Slotting any augment also increases the slotted item’s minimum level to the level of the slotted augment for as long as that augment is slotted, unless the item’s minimum level is already equal or higher.

    Acquiring Augments

    Augments are unbound and can be found 5% of the time from treasure chests.
    Lahar the Epic Trader in the Twelve sells some augments. Their costs in Epic Dungeon and Epic Raid tokens are lower than their previous costs.

    Level 12, 16, 20, and 24 Augments will be found in the Ruins of Gianthold in exchange for Ancient Elven, Giant, and Dragon relics, and the epic versions thereof.

    Augment Slots will be found…
    • On many named items.
    • In random treasure.
    • They are compatible with Cannith Crafting.

    When found on a lootgen (random) item, the augment slot replaces some of the value that the item would have otherwise had in the power of its Enhancement Bonus, prefix, or suffix.

    5% of generated items have an Augment Slot.

    Colorless Augment Slots take +1 of the item’s total enhancement value.
    Red, Blue, and Yellow Augment Slots take +2 of the item’s total enhancement value.
    Purple, Orange, and Green Augment Slots cannot be found on random treasure. They are found on named treasure only.

    Augments and Augment Slots are fully compatible with Cannith Crafting. Augment Slots and slotted augments persist through disjunction.

    When on a Craftable item, a Colorless Augment Slot adds +1 to the item’s total enhancement value. Red, Blue and Yellow slots add +2 to the item’s total enhancement value, and a Purple, Orange, and Green Augment Slot (if at some point they are available on an item which can be made Craftable) would add +3 to the item’s total enhancement value.

    What about old Epic augments?

    We have decided the best way to make the transition to the new style of slots is to allow everyone to do it at their own pace.

    Please keep in mind that the old style Epic Augment Crystals will no longer be available after Update 17, and they do not function in the new slots.

    To convert an old Epic item to use the new slots, place the item you would like to convert into the Altar of Epic Rituals along with 50 Siberys Dragonshard Fragments. This performs the “Cleansing Ritual”, which updates items to the new Augment Slots.

    This converts the augment slots on the item to the new system. They retain their colors and can accept the new augments, but can no longer use Epic Augment Crystals from before Update 17. This process will remove all currently slotted Epic Augments in the item, and may also remove other modifications, such as Stone of Change recipes.

    You aren’t forced to update old Epic items. If you are happy with your current item, you do not need to use the Cleansing Ritual to update your item.

    Available Augments:

    Please note the following:
    • Most augment bonuses, unless otherwise specified, are an Enhancement Bonus.
    • Spell Power Augments are an Equipment Bonus.
    • There are also special augments found as named items and raid treasure which are not on the list below.

    The below listed Augments are implemented with the introduction of the Augment system and can be found in level-appropriate random treasure.
    Update 17 also introduces the first three “Named” Augments, which drop in specific locations inside certain quests. Named Augments can do special and wondrous things.

    New Augments will continue to be added in future updates. For example: Colorless augments that provide bonuses to Skills are currently planned as a future update to this system.

    Are the "+X Hit Points" considered the same as either the Toughness enchantment or the False Life line?

    In other words, will the the +X Hit Points Augments stack with either Toughness or False Life? Or the "Large Guild Augment of Health" should we choose to retain it?

    Overall this looks good but please, when U17 hits please send an in game mail about the quote below to every character who is level 20 or higher or has true reincarnated. Otherwise the non-forum goers will be raging when they cleanse their items without realizing the cost of the change.

    so basically you're just combining guild augments and epic augments and adding more of what used to be "crystal of devils ruin" that do stuff in more than just red slots.

    It's cool. It's not the revelation it might have been, and I think adding to the enhancement level and therefore lowering the quality of lootgen that has it is a HUGE mistake.

    Lootgen now in some rare cases is on par with some of the better raid loot. Making it so there's a 5% of that exceptionally rare lootgen generating the same as now but with an augment slot is awesome, but not what you're planning.

    I would beg you to NOT do that, and just make the augment slot a really lucky pull on the right piece of loot. It makes looting chests fun and worthwhile which keeps people running content.

    False Life is an Enhancement Bonus? First I heard of that. Was testing done?

    For clarity, will those be colorless, or auto-converted by item type?

    ...
    When on a Craftable item, a Colorless Augment Slot adds +1 to the item’s total enhancement value. Red, Blue and Yellow slots add +2 to the item’s total enhancement value, and a Purple, Orange, and Green Augment Slot (if at some point they are available on an item which can be made Craftable) would add +3 to the item’s total enhancement value.
    That'd translate to +2, +4, and +6(eventually) levels under present rules. Are ML or max potential calcs being revisited to bring things to parity, or should we expect the same system to remain? (If not, I see quite a few folks dropping say, the + entirely off a weapon if it has a red slot, so not all necessarily bad, by any means, but could lead to some wonkiness when it comes to y'all figuring out where our relative power-levels should be at when designing/tweaking content.)

    EDIT: Er.. wait... you removed the +7 mutation, or was that an oversight in the listing?

    Purple, Orange, and Green Augment Slots cannot be found on random treasure. They are found on named treasure only.
    Will named items have a percentage chance, or be fixed? (I could see either way working, though if it is random, I'd likely bump that up to say, 25% just to keep the grind for 'perfect' vs 'good enough' within most folks OCD levels.)

    Not trying to be cynical but..So far reads like a failure of the system.
    I hope I am reading this wrong and you havent just completely screwed the guild slot system.
    Will have to come back and reread your post... started feeling doom sickness after reading this post.. also double checking calendar to make sure it isnt April 1st.


    Guild slots were stacking bonusses with no min level increase.
    Now..Guild slots for a unique guild added bonus will cease to exist to be replaced by augments that will add to the min level and be enhancement bonusses that dont stack?
    Augment slots like guild slots were desired because they were a different bonus and stacked, turning these into enhancments screws that entire benefit.
    Stuff like stacking HP, SP, Intimidate,search,disable,haggle...etc....


    Increasing the minimum level of these items by adding a slot makes most of them worthless.
    A augment slot is supposed to be desirable (hence the low droprate)and better than something at the same level, not amputated then given a upgradable prosthetic that makes it almost as good as an original equivilent.

    All the low level stuff you have listed is mostly pointless and will never be used.. where are the skill boosters, SP boosts
    Is there any point to having these slot crafted items?
    No minimum level:
    +1 Natural Armor
    +1 Protection
    +1 Resistance
    +2 Physical Resistance Rating
    ^ all pointless unless they stack, why would you even bother...
    +5 Hitpoints.. are these stacking like the guild ones?
    no Dodge bonusses???


    A random drop min level 25 item with an augment slot becomes useless? are you neutering the min level 25 item to be a level 23 item with an augment slot in which case it would be a ..ahh man if this didn't have a augment slot it would have been a +7implement instead of +5...off to the Cannith deconstructor...

    MECHANICS/
    ~To use an Augment, double-click on it from your inventory.~
    ~Then, a barter-shop style window specific to that augment will appear on screen~
    OG I hope you are joking... in quest clicking on a item that has a clickie and.... crafting barter window opens blocking my active combat view.. can I slot stuff while I am being killed? or better yet finish slotting when I am dead? Will this also open the DDO store to the rez cake section? Perhaps a audience with the crafting queen so I cant be harmed while midquest augment slotting.

    Slottable Augments/
    Too short a list... Anything currently Cannith Craftible should be slottable.
    Is this the tip of the iceberg with lots more to come... or the sorry kid all you see on the display shelf is all we have.

    Level 20+ Epic worthy augments are lacking, give us more choices that will make us want to shelve greensteel...
    Where are all the worthy augments to replace Greensteel tier goodies, Greensteel tier 2 clickies, Draconic like runes,....
    Greensteel already has resistance 30 on min level 12 stuff...(my level 11 wand does 30 resist)..
    I even have crafted greensteel that gives+45resist(30+stacking10+stacking5)..
    At epic20 we should be seeing...Superior Resistances(40's),.. Elemental absorptions, dodge5%, Superior False Life, etc......,

    At level24 I should be seeing some great stuff... permanent slotting for devils ruin, vampirism, vorpal, smiting, banishing??
    .. augments that make you want to throw away the greensteels we have coveted for 4 years and get augmented up....
    Stackable Elemental absorpton is much more desirable at higher levels over resistances which everyone has by this point.
    Who cares about 35 resistance when you are getting hit for 600+ point fireballs. Epic24 should be resist50 or stackable+20...besides...
    At the epic levels we are looking to mitigate epic damage, with epic worthy gear.. not slots to replace parts of level 12 gear/level 11 spells.. it doesnt cut it.


    Random drop augments? If you do decided you have to drop these at lease dont have these as bound.. at all.. period...
    Grow the list, everything cannith craftible should be augmentable, all the exisiting guild augments should be slottable.
    Dont give us 6 choices per slot and say thats all we could do in time for the release.. but we might add stuff later ... off to the next project...



    /rant off.
    Time to stockpile guild augment slot items

    Would have liked to have seen random drop augment slots accept everything available to Cannith Crafting.
    Should have been able to deconstruct augment slots and put them onto crafted gear...
    Such as.. Have a nice piece of armour that you like the look of.. craft it up and add an augment slot to it.

    Epic Augments should be able to slot cannith crafting(at least+5) as well as the exisiting epic augments without level increase.

    and remember ~Epic Slots for Epic worthy augments~
    Epic 24 augments need to have... the oh yeah i gotta get that factor...not the meh I'll just use my level 11 wand...
    I should be saying screw litany/Torc/Greensteel thats level 12-20 pre-Epic stuff.. Epic24 is the gotta have grind worthy stuff.

    A couple of questions:

    Named Items - Is there going to be a stone of change ritual to convert old named items to new named items w/slots? (i.e. similar to Epic Weapons)

    If so, can we assume that things like Festival recipe and Eldritch Rituals will be wiped from them as well?

    Crafting - The way I'm reading this newly crafted items with these slots will be Higher ML than existing items with Guild Augment slots. Is that correct? (For example: What would the ML be for a Cloak of Charisma +2 with a Medium Guild Slot vs a similar Cloak with a new Augment slot - Clear, Red, etc.)

    Could we get Spell Power on something other than red augments? That'd go a long way towards fixing what you did to melee divines.

    The way I'm reading that, if the loot generator creates an item which has an augment slot, it probably would have normally been a ML 22 to ML 24 item.

    It sounds like the higher level items would get watered down with these augments.

    Not sure If this is what they mean, but that's how it's coming across to me.

    So like only 25% of all eSoS' will have a red slot? Sounds fun

    Please tell me the dropped Augments are NOT BTC unless they are raid quality.

    If a named item has one or more augment slots, it always has those augment slots.

    Only randomly generated items (lootgen items) have a chance to have a slot.

    Usually I am the first one to shake my head and go , "Really?"

    In this case I think there is a lot of potential, especially for characters outside of the current min max builds to really fill some whole in their build.

    That all depends on what Augments can go out what rare/raid items and if things like green steel will get augments ...

    In the end lots of potential.
