Inspecting an augmented item

Augmentation is the process by which players use their Invention skill to enhance weapons, shields, armour, and tools. Items can be augmented with the use of an augmentor, and a gizmo shell can then be added to hold various perks. Most augmented items degrade in combat using the universal charge pack, rather than using the Equipment degradation system. Augmentable items that normally degrade to dust are created with their own pool of charges, and drain that pool exclusively. An augmentable item cannot be augmented in a broken state.

Augmented items are not tradeable; however, the process can be reversed with an augmentation dissolver, although this will permanently destroy the augmentor and any attached gizmos. In addition, if the item was degradeable prior to augmentation, it will revert to its fully degraded form. Additionally, they cannot be brought to a duel at Duel Arena.

On death, any augmented equipment which is not protected will drain two hours worth of drain rate when it is recovered; e.g. if a 1 charge/second drain weapon is not protected, it drains 7200 charges on recovery.

Disassembling and siphoning[edit | edit source]

After levelling your item, you can choose to disassemble or siphon it for Invention experience. Disassembling it gives more experience earlier, but destroys both the item and the augmentor.

Items can acquire experience prior to unlocking the ability to level them.

The level effect is cumulative; a level 10 item will have all the previous effects.
