The augmented crystal shield is a level 70 Melee off-hand slot item created by using an augmentor on a crystal shield.
Armour gizmos charged with perks can be used to enhance the shield's abilities. As an off-hand slot item, the Augmented crystal shield can hold 1 gizmo, allowing up to 2 perks.
Using this shield in combat can gain experience to increase its level. Levelling the shield will have no effect on its ability in combat, but it will improve the experience and materials gained for disassembling it.
The Augmented crystal shield 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.
Crystal items are guaranteed to give a special component. They will either give 1 crystal part (common), 1 Seren component (uncommon), or 1 Faceted component (uncommon).
