So I was feeling lucky and I went and tried to augment my woodsmans ring.

Beat the lolbehemoth. And wouldn't you know it. My woodsmans ring got a str bonus on it!. I lost 1 dex but still That can be made up with other gear anyways. So last night was a good night for me :D. I also got a spinal earring with a str augment on it (it had M acc but I will save that for rdm forums). Has anyone else felt lucky enough to augment their woodsmans?

Best subject ever. Something happened? NO WAY! Recommendation: make the subject descriptive of the content yet succinct.

No, it can't. People need to drop this argument. If you equip gear with more DEX on it to compensate, you're probably gimping the slot you adjusted, so now you lost those stats too. If you keep your gear the same, or if the rest of your gear improves, you're still behind 1 DEX. It's not much (neither is 1 STR), but getting the stat back elsewhere is a mistake.

As for the topic itself, woodsman is very replaceable, but isn't once you put an augment on it (which may or may not be junk). I tried augmenting my life belt and wound up with STR-1 DEX+1 VIT-1, so I need to sell that off and replace it with a new one. Not going to be attempting that anymore.

I Hear what you are saying but with my current build. I was at an odd number for dex (if I use just straight acc food then I see no difference) If I eat sushi cause I mostly nom on teh pizza, however it will make the difference. How can 1 make a difference if it puts you at an odd number?

It's not about your gear in particular, it's about the argument that you can overcome bad stats with good stats elsewhere.

True in what you say. But let me ask you how many other rings do you get that give you str and acc other then when you are in certain zones?

It's a great idea and if it works out well it can be awesome.

But if you got +1str and -1dex, you just added 0.75att and lost 0.75acc on your tp build.

I'm not going to do the math for you.



edit: that sounded harsher than I meant it to. This is genuinely a good idea if you have the time and money to try it til you get a good one.

I've never done one of these "augment the gear jammies" yet. Does the augmented gear become r or r/ex ex or r/ex? If so I doubt I would spend 130k (woodsman) to try to nab a potentially meaningless attribute if i would be unable to recoup my investment.

Edit: meant to say ex or r/ex

once you augment something it becomes Aug/Ex, which is different than rare/ex, in that you can have more than one of them. However, you cannot sell the item on the auction house, or in a bazaar, and the item cannot be traded or sent via DB. The only way to get rid of an augmented item is to drop it, or sell it to a vendor npc.

Except if it were baby photos, it would be like looking at before and afters of Michael Jackson. Only instead of turning into a white guy, he changes into a chick!

I understand how some people can have that fear but woodsmans are going for roughly 90k on my server. So I felt pretty lucky when I did it. Gonna try the other one tonight i'm going to laugh if I get +2 and -1 str haha
