Augmentations are items you can add to existing items to improve them. Most items have a "Slot" in them where you can place an augmentation. Some items have more then one slot.



As of the patch of August 15, 2012, Augmentation Sealers are no longer needed. Augments can now be directly swapped in a piece of armor by clicking on an inserted augment with another augment on your cursor. Distiller requirements still apply.

Augmentation types[edit]

  • Type 1 (General: Single Stat) - An aug that only has single stats on it (all agi, or all mana, or all ac ect..)
  • Type 2 (General: Multiple Stat) - Lost Dungeons of Norrath (LDoN) general multi-stats
  • Type 3 (General: Spell Effect) - LDoN aug that has only focus effects or melee effects on it; or introduced with SoF are the augs that give a bonus to spells.
  • Type 4 (Weapon: General) - This slot is only found on weapons. Drop off of mobs and purchased with alternate currency.
  • Type 5 (General: Multiple Stat) - Type 5 (Weapon: Elem Damage) were originally augs that only fit into LDoN weapons. With the release of The Broken Mirror, newer Type 5 (General: Multiple Stat) augmentations were created that fit into newer gear.

Adding and Removing augmentations[edit]

Several vendors sell Augmentation Solvents and/or Augmentation Distillers. Solvents destroy the augmentation and Distillers will safely remove them.

All augmentations can be added to or removed from items directly from the item window. You will need to have augmentation distillers or solvents in your inventory to remove those augments that require them. Swapping augments does not require a specific solvent and instead the game looks for a solvent of equal or higher level, like removing an augment.

  • To add an augment to a piece of equipment, pick up the augment on your cursor and click on the desired augment slot.
  • To remove an augment from a piece of equipment, left click on it. If the augment requires a solvent to remove, it will ask you for confirmation before removing it.
  • To destroy a non-removable augment that is in a piece of equipment, right click on the augment and select the Destroy option.

Some augmentations may not be safely removed, only destroyed. However, the Perfected Augmentation Distiller (see below) now in the game may enable you to safely remove any augmentation.

Perfected Augmentation Distiller[edit]

Alerynril the Loyal in the Plane of Knowledge (near the Crescent Reach stone) sells Perfected Augmentation Distillers for 432 crowns (loyalty tokens). These are reported to allow you to safely remove any augmentation, including those that state they can only be destroyed.

The Perfected Augmentation Distiller may only be used to remove one augmentation. You must purchase another to remove another augmentation.

She does not offer them to some people unless they uncheck the "Show only items I can use" box.

Hidden augmentation issues[edit]

Some items create hidden augmentations. You may get a message when trying to sell back gear to NPC vendors, "This item contains an augment that I can't accept." This can also happen when trying to make a combine (e.g. upgrade visible armor). To resolve it, equip the piece, remove your power source, then unequip the piece.

Charm augmentations[edit]

These are some augmentations will go in a Charm item.

Luck[edit]

These Charm item augmentations add Luck. They start at minimum luck and the luck can be increased by fusing them with another of the same item.

Range augmentations[edit]

These are some augmentations that fit in Range items.

Charm/Range augmentations[edit]

These are some type 7/8 augmentations that fit in both Charm and Range items.

Hate augmentations[edit]

These augmentations increase the hate (aggro) upon the player.

Arcane specialization augmentations[edit]

These augmentations improve your Arcane specialization.

Lore Group[edit]

Some augmentations are part of a Lore Group. A Lore Group consists of two or more augmentations that only allow you to have one of the group. If you have one of the Lore Group, you are not able to get another member of the group and an attempt to loot another of the lore group will give you the message you already have the augmentation, even though you might not have that exact one but one that is in the same lore group.

Augmentation Sealer[edit]

They are scattered in various areas of Norrath and look like a bird bath. They no longer serve any purpose but this section is left for historical reasons.
