    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 that if Turbine went all EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on, would actually make the game fun again.:
    • Giving us the racial PrE’s we were promised, before rolling out DDOStore™ Enhancement Trees.
    • Fixing physical defense for Rangers and Rogues. It’s ridiculous that you’re better off wearing Heavy Armor and ignoring your innate feats on these classes.
    • Cannith Crafting.
    • Update the named loot to put them on the same system.
    • Fixing the Cannith Challenges so that they can be 6 starred without incredible luck or store bought items.
    • Fixing all challenges to give us decent XP and ingredient returns for the unreasonable time we have to spend in most of them.

    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.)
