I don't know if anyone else has done this, but I've picked up multiple pieces of Battle Trophy gear (Paragon, specifically) in an attempt to find decent augments. However, NPCs will not buy them from me, so I'm forced to drop them. This bugs me, because they'll buy augmented Dominion Notes weapons. I'd like to see the armor sell to NPCs for roughly the same price as the weapons do, so I don't feel that getting a piece of gear with bad augments is a total loss.
