    Default U48 Preview 2: Augment Revamp

    This whole post is new to preview 2

    Disclaimer
    Everything seen on the preview server, Lamannia, is not final and is subject to change or removal before live release.

    Overview
    Expected with the Release of Update 48 is a revamp to Augments. This, in large part, fundamentally changes the underlying structure of how augments and augment slots function. The post below describes how these changes will appear to players. The posts below this one list the various new Augments that are expected to be included in the release of Update 48.

    Augments You Already Have
    Any Augment that is not slotted into an item when you log in after the update will be updated to both work with the new augment system and reflect the power level of Cannith Crafted effects at the minimum level of that augment immediately upon first logging in with no other action required on your part.

    Any item that have an empty augment slot when you log in after the update will be updated to work with the new augment system immediately upon first logging in with no other action required on your part.

    Any item that has an Augment slotted into an augment slot when you log in after the update will work exactly as it had before the update unless you choose to intervene and unslot that augment using a "Legacy Augment Unslotter". Legacy Augment Unslotters are a new item that is sold at House Cannith crafting halls (NOTE: For this preview Legacy Augment Unslotters can be found on the platinum Auction House) which allows you to remove augments from legacy style augment slots and, in the process, convert the legacy style augment slot and the augment to work in the new augment system. To use a Legacy Augment Unslotter do the following:
    1. Double Click on the Legacy Augment Unslotter
    2. Drag the item that you wish to unslot a legacy augment from
    3. Select which Legacy Augment you would like to unslot
    4. Click "Unslot Augment"
    5. Log Out
    6. Log Back in


    New Augment System
    Slotting Augments is no longer done by double clicking on the augment and dragging into the crafting UI the item that you would like to slot the augment into. Instead you now drag the item that you would like to slot an augment into (that has an empty augment slot) into the Augment Slotting panel located in the right of the Inventory menu (Currently named Modify Legendary Greensteel Items). From there, each augment slot available on the item will be displayed. Empty slots can be filled by dragging the correct color of augment into the slot. Filled slots can be emptied by dragging a Jeweler's Toolkit over a slotted augment.

    Updated Basic Augments
    All normal augments that grant basic statistics (such as Dexterity, Spell Power, etc.) now provide a bonus that is equal to a Cannith Crafted effect of the same minimum level of the augment. This means for example, that minimum level 16 Diamonds of Wisdom now grant 8 Wisdom (matching level 16 Cannith Crafted gear) instead of the 5 Wisdom they used to.

    New Basic Augments
    There are a number of new Basic Augment types that cover stats previously not granted by augments. You can see the list in the post below.

    New Named Augments
    There are new named augments that can be gained from different sources. In the posts below are lists of the new named augments expected in U48 and where to find them. Some can be found specifically in Fables of the Feywild content and others can be crafted using a combination of Threads of Fate, an Empty Soul Vessel (which can be found in Fables of the Feywild content), and various different Raid items. The list of these augments are in the posts below.

    Known Issues
    • Augments do not currently enforce their minimum level on the item they are slotted into.
    • Augments slots are displayed twice on an items tooltip
    • The Augment Slotting panel button in the Inventory Menu is still called "Modify Legendary Greensteel Items"
    • Legacy Augment Unslotter tooltip text is entirely inaccurate. It is currently the same tooltip text as Jeweler's Tool Kits have historically had which does not describe how to use them.
    • Jeweler's Tool Kits tooltip description has not yet been updated to describe how to use them

    Question about the current +1 and +2 spell DC augments . . . are those going to be updated to be cannith crafting equivalent also, meaning they won't stack with existing spell DC items? Or are those going to be retained as a separate stacking augment with spell DC's getting their own augment?

    Please reconsider the ML of 30. None of the augments should be more than ML 29. It will be a royal pain with gear being ML29 and the augment ML30.

    If you insist on the ML30 tag please atleast explain why.

    I noticed that you’re sticking to the 1/4/8/12/16/20/24/28 scaling. Is there any chance you could expand the system to do augments based on the Cannith Scaling?

    Ex. Diamond of Str:
    +1 (AML:1)
    +2 (AML:2)
    +3 (AML:4)
    +4 (AML:5)
    +5 (AML:7)
    +6 (AML:10)
    +7 (AML:13)
    +8 (AML:15)
    +9 (AML:18)
    +10 (AML:21)
    +11 (AML:23)
    +12 (AML:26)
    +13 (AML:29)

    Edit:
    You *could* also do Sapphire and Emerald Augments for at cap stat bonuses.
    +14 Sapphire of Strength (ML: 30)
    +15 Emerald of Strength (ML: 30)

    Things worthy of Standing Stone going EXTREME PREJUDICE™ on.:
    • NEW - Setting Unarmed Strike back to what it was and attacking the real problem: Reinforced Fists items.
    • Fix the flipping non-proficiency penalties for Bear and Wolf wildshapes!
    • Redoing the drop rates of tomes in generic and raid loot tables.
    • Keep Lynnabel on task 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.

    On live I have a character with a Volley that has Deconstructor in the Red aug slot and a blank Purple aug slot. After transferring to Lamannia, the Purple aug slot disappeared.

    Default Augment updates

    Great question above about stacking DC augments.

    I was ready to reply to first preview thread when I saw this preview get posted... way behind. Thanks for explaining how transition will work to the new system. One of my questions was if you were going to supply free tool kits for removing currently slotted augments. As long as these legacy tool kits are cheap then you answered that question.

    First I want to say I love the system, the use of raid items to promote raiding, and the flexibility of gear sets, especially taking in Feywild seasonal sets. This will be a nightmare of gear Tetris, but a really fun nightmare!

    For Soul-forged augments requiring 1 raid item for 1 cool effect is reasonable, it will put higher demand on those items (=less sharing) but not a crazy amount as these are augments bound to account, and you only need one for the effect... likely you have an item on a toon already you could make an augment from. I will say that needing 3 items from THTH is a ridiculous cost, I would make that augment better, or cost cheaper.

    The set bonus augments (while really cool), will put a huge demand on those items and make sharing those specific items almost zero. You need three for a set, and likely will want a couple sets to boot for different toons. I would suggest to try to reduce pressure from these specific items. Yeah my cleric will never get passed the tattered scrolls now, I will have to use raid runes for those which is ok, but having 6 people in a raid wanting the same item always will get frustrating for those, especially since you need at least three.

    Many have said use raid runes at a cheaper rate than 1250, which would help. My suggestion is to pick two or three raid items, from different raids, to be able to use in crafting one set augment. So you can run normal THTH for a chance at tattered scrolls, then hit KT for a chance at item number 2 in +4 arti charisma augment recipe. Having multiple chances would make sharing more likely and alleviate frustration at trying to find 3 (or 6) of the same raid item given raid timers. I would pick 3 raid items per augment set, but having a second option would go a looooong way.

    As always thanks for the great work and for keeping us a part of the process, can’t wait for the expansion!

    If you insist on the ML30 tag please atleast explain why.

    yes please consider. lvl 29 is a milestone for gear sets and it will also be like this when you'll increase the level cap.

    The biggest problem I see is that the set augments are limited to single raid items. Going with the goal of encouraging the running of raids while still making these sets challenging to get, the best solution I see is to increase the number of raid items ( and items that can only be gained through raids ) that can be used each set type.

    Example:

    Brutal Blows: ( +4 ARtifact Bonus to Strength )
    Ingredients Required to Craft: 50 Threads of Fate, 1 Empty Soul Vessel and one of following: Piston Boots, Mail of the Mronanon, or Echo of the Icon

    Cunning Impact: ( +4 Artifact bonus to Dexterity )
    Ingredients Required to Craft: 50 Threads of Fate, 1 Empty Soul Vessel and one of following: Legendary Tharne's Bracers, Van Richten's Spectacles, or Strange Tidings

    Which raid items they have wouldn't matter as long as they have 3 of them in any combination. A player could have 1 Strange Tidings and 2 Legendary Thranes Bracers, 150 threads of fate, and 3 Empty Soul vessels and be able to craft a set of 3 Cunning Impact augments.

    Advantages:

    1) Encourages a greater variety of raids which will reduce fatigue and make it easier to find people to run raids with.
    2) Reduces the impact that raid timers will have on getting these sets while still letting it be a factor.
    3) Still makes these sets difficult to get while not making it so much of a grind that most players don't even try ( yes I know a few out there have thousands of runes banked )

    Is it intentional that the Greater Topaz' of Spellschool no longer stack? They used to be +2 stacking but now they're +5 non-stacking with standard spell focus

    I used a Legacy Unslotter to remove a Draconic Soul Gem from my Legendary Robes of the Dreadkeeper and it removed the augment slot entirely:


    When I try to augment it now it says "this item has no augment slots!"

    My Legendary Skin-Tight Gloves list their augment slots twice:



    NO wait Okay I see what's happening there, it's listing all the augments that can go in each slot. Okay, that's clunky and hard to read. I'd rather just have it say "Green Augment Slot" the way it used to.

    Maybe they did not realize these were stacking bonuses. Hopefully this will be changed back as that is why we spent DDO points on them to begin with.
