Augments are enchanted powders, tinctures and poisons that can be used to empower your weapons, rings and amulets with additional stats. With the exception of one quest reward in Act 3, they are acquired from Faction Vendors.
There are three sets of Augments, each intended for different items.
- The first set is for use on Rings and Amulets.
- The second set is for one-handed Weapons, Shields and Caster Off-hands. There are also “Potent” versions of these Augments for use with Two-handed weapons that provide stronger stats.
- The third is for use in armor pieces (head, shoulders, chest, belt, hand, legs and feet)
Applying an Augment to a weapon also adds a glowing visual effect to that weapon. This will not work on items that already have a special effect, such as various Epic weapons.
An item may have only one Augment on it at any given time, and applying a new Augment overwrites the old one. Salvaging or Dismantling an Augmented item does not return the Augment, but it can be purchased again from faction vendors.
