I’m truly looking forward to item enhancement:

Item Enhancements: The first system allows our players to make changes and modifications to their own crafted and acquired items. Called Item Enhancement (though that may not be its final name), this system will allow players to apply modifiers that add to the item’s attributes. Item Enhancement modifiers increase the capabilities of your items, and potentially gives them new abilities.

For instance, there is no Body gear that I can find that adds anything to Sabotage attack although there are several that add to Sabotage defend. Cannot understand why that is the case, but I look forward to being able to craft a nice cloak or something that would add more of that ability to my SS who is stuck with a more generic item right now.

What do the rest of you plan to do with item enhancement when it comes?

The only body item that adds attack %s of any kind without red gem bonuses is Shadowbinder Mask.

We’ll be watching carefully to see how you all like Item Enhancement. I can say that it’s not applying a prefix or suffix to an item - it is a completely new system that has more in common with World of Warcraft’s gem system than our current crafting system.

Well, there it is, the only time in my life I wish I would have played WOW so I had an idea of what the system was LOL Off to wiki-it.

If it’s like a gem socket, that sounds more like a boon for items.

Would this mean that the enhancement would be temporary?

PS - I know you can’t really go in to detail, but I had to ask .. smile

I don’t think enhancements are temporary since we can make enhanced items permanent. I did think about something using gems when the official AvA thread was released, and Nod’s reply over here confirms my expectation. I do hope to see speed-up and silver enhancements too though. smile

Making the enhancement perm would possibly be only one form of enhancement. Some WoW gems can be overwritten, which means that are temporary to some degree.

Sounds like we may get a variety of gems/stones that each have specific attributes, permanency sounded like a completely different bit of code written into the shop.

Oh, the joy of speculation!

Hopefully being able to make items permanent will be around before new fealties!

Can you only enhance a specific number of items or all of your items? And if it just is a specific number of items will the items you enhance be “unenhancable”?
Since if I would want some quest speed items enhancements right now while I am reincarnating I will probably want other enhancements when I am done reincarnating.

Item Enhancement is coming along well! Here is a sneak peek of what we have been working on, with some enhanced items. Please note that these screenshots are from a version that is still in development; UI, stats, and the system itself may go through changes before this goes live.

The first screenshot is of a Sworn Sword with all six seal slots unlocked. The stats and description are cumulative of all items, seals, and inherent stats on the Sworn Sword. You should also notice that the middle bar in the Sworn Sword, where the seal slots are, is gold. That means that this Sworn Sword is permanent. Items and sworn swords become permanent when you spend gold to unlock a seal slot.

The second screenshot is of a Valyrian Dagger, which was attached to that Sworn Sword, enhanced with four seals.

The different colors of seals on each item denote the rarity of the seal equipped in that slot. You’ll also notice a More button, which lets you see all of the stats of the item, in case the text is cut off by the description space.

Just a little fuel for your thoughts on this Tuesday afternoon!

Does that mean that this system requires gold to use? Or do items/SS start with some slots and you can get more by paying gold?
