Ninja Fixes

  • Degradable items are now dropped in the Wilderness with their charges intact.
  • High-end defenders can now be augmented. These only have one gizmo slot but can take either a weapon or armour gizmo.
  • Augmented items are now accounted for on the wealth evaluator (if the untradeable wealth option is turned on)
  • Newly-created Fishing rod-o-matics now stack in the bank. Existing rod-o-matics that have no gizmos or item XP can be converted into this new stacking variant with a right-click option.
  • Upgraded God Wars Dungeon 2, Malevolent, Sirenic & Tectonic armours can now be augmented at an Invention workbench using a non-degraded piece with an augmentor and 36 divine charges. Already degraded armour cannot be augmented. These armour pieces use their own charge, rather than the main charge pack. Once all charge is used and the item is at Lv10 it becomes uncharged and can no longer be used. Gear upgraded in this way cannot use augmentation dissolvers.
  • Non-augmented God Ward Dungeon 2 upgraded armour now degrades 10% (down from 20%) when reclaimed from a gravestone.
  • Removed the warning when disassembling items when the player has maximum materials.
  • Shields, tier 70 and above, may now be augmented. Augmented shields can take one armour gizmo. They gain item XP and drain divine charge at the same rates as off-hand weapons.
  • Augmented shieldbows may now take up to one weapon and one armour gizmo.
  • Players can now disassemble individual items in combat.
  • Item XP and XP until the next item level now appears in an augmented item's tooltip and in the chat window when checked during combat.
  • The Destroy option for augmented equipment has been changed to Disassemble. Players can still destroy these by dragging them from the bank (such as if a player wishes to reclaim tokens for chaotic gear).
