Augmented Dark Shard of Leng (Third Age) detail.png

The third age-dyed augmented dark shard of leng is a level 95 Melee main hand weapon, created by using an augmentor on a Dark Shard of Leng (Third Age), or by using a third age dye on an Augmented Dark Shard of Leng.

Augmented dyed equipment do not feature the cogs associated with most augmented items (they look identical to non-augmented versions). Disassembling augmented dyed items does not return the dye. Dying in unsafe player-versus-player (PvP) combat with this item drops a broken Dark Shard of Leng - the dye, augmentor, and gizmos are lost.

Weapon gizmos charged with perks can be used to enhance the item's abilities. As a main hand slot item, the Augmented Dark Shard of Leng (Third Age) can hold 1 gizmo, allowing up to 2 perks.

Using this item in combat can gain experience to increase its level. Levelling the weapon will have no effect on its ability in combat, but it will improve the experience and materials gained for disassembling it.

The Augmented Dark Shard of Leng (Third Age) uses charges stored in the universal charge pack. When the charge pack runs out of charges, the item loses stats and gizmo effects, and can also no longer gain any equipment experience. Function will resume when the pack is recharged with divine charges.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The Dark Shard of Leng's special attack, Icy Tempest

The shard has a special attack called Icy Tempest, which costs 20% adrenaline and has a 60 second cooldown between uses, lasting for 30 seconds.

When used, the player's damage cap is increased by 30% for 30 seconds, applying for melee, reflect, and dominion mine damage as long as melee is the primary combat style being used by the player.

Due to the nature of this special, using it is only recommended when the player will frequently hit the damage cap. As the damage cap for non-critical and critical hits is 10,000 and 12,000 respectively, the special attack is intended to be used while under the effects of Berserk or at places with high damage buffs, as abilities under them tend to hit the damage cap frequently.

Set bonus[edit | edit source]

When the player dual wields a combination of the Dark ice shard or Dark Shard of Leng and the Dark ice sliver or Dark Sliver of Leng, there is no longer a shared cooldown between the Hurricane and Destroy abilities. Because the weapons' passive effect enables the use of Hurricane while dual-wielding, Hurricane and Destroy can be used consecutively in either order.
