    Default Upgrading Old Gear - Please Address

    When the augment slots were added to the game, you included a provision for rebuilding epic items to take advantage of the new slot mechanism over the old one. Which was a correct and just decision.

    However, there is still a lot of gear that required grinding and luck to build. And a lot of that gear is pre-slot, but no method exist for upgrading, and thus it requires re-grinding and luck again. This is a poor design decision. There is no good reason someone should have to regrind for an item already possessed.

    On the next update (or sooner), please institute a mechanism to allow for upgrading older named loot. And do so without adding odd or rare materials (no "You need to get this from that raid to upgrade" ****).

    An example: Shields of Legend from the Necropolis. New versions have augment slots, old versions do not. We should be able to take an old SoL and toss it in a stone of change with some fragments or dragonshards and convert it to a new, slotted version.

    Agreed.
    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for wildshape!
    • Redo the Favor rewards so there is a reason to do max favor again.
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Task Lynnabel with updating the remaining legacy named loot to not suck.
    • Tiering the Runearms so that artificers aren’t screwed out of the advantages of Cannith Crafting in Epic levels on their signature item.
    • Finishing the enhancement tree passes (including racial PrE’s) before rolling out yet another DDOStore™ Enhancement Tree.

    I don't think it's possible to upgrade old items in the manner you describe if it benefits the players.

    Historically, changes to extant items have only taken place if it resulted in lowering the potency or utility of an item.

    Even if they wanted to, I don't think they could.

    They can. When you “Upgrade” an older epic item, all it does is destroy the old one and put a new version (or token in the case of exclusive items.) in your inventory. A non-epic version of this is the old Abbott items upgrades at the fountains. (The Recipes with the tapestries.)
