Try to Get Offensive Skills

The best skills to get when augmenting your armor are mostly skills that boost your offensive potential. These skills boost your Attack stat or Affinity, which will allow you to deal more damage when hunting monsters.

Several armor pieces lack these skills, especially those with multiple Decoration slots, so it is a good idea to augment those armor and try to get one of mentioned skills.

Low Chance to Roll Offensive Skills

Unfortunately, the skills listed above also have a low chance of being rolled when augmenting armor pieces. If you want to obtain these skills, you need to keep rolling until you get them when augmenting, as well as getting a steady supply of the required materials to keep augmenting armor.

Consider Alternative Results

The skills listed above are some examples of commonly-used skills in builds which do not see much priority and rather support the featured skills in a certain build.

Consider keeping the armor when one of these skills pop up in your augmentations!

Aim For Additional Decoration Slots

Occasionally, your augment roll might give you additional decorations slots instead of a skill.

Increasing an armor piece's Decoration slot can make it more functional than its original state, as you can insert more Decorations and add quality of life or safety skills to your build.

How to Get Best Armor Augment Skills

Keep Augmented Armor with Good Skills

If the armor you augmented came up with a skill that you think will be useful, accept the augmentation result and keep the armor as it is better to have it in your inventory than throwing away a good roll.

If you want to keep rolling for better skills, simply create a new armor piece from scratch and use the newly-crafted item to continue your augment attempts.

Low Rarity Armor Get Better Augmentations

Augmenting Low Rarity Armor Augmenting High Rarity Armor

When augmenting armor pieces, the lower the rarity of your armor, the better the changes you can get after the process!

After making several armor augmentations, we have ascertained that the Defense stat changes for low rarity armor are higher than the rarer ones.

Average Defense Increase Per Rarity

Average Defense Increase
Rarity 8 16
Rarity 9 5.8
Rarity 10 3.86

Farm Amber Essences in High-Level Anomaly Investigations

Armor augmenting may be relatively tedious as it relies on luck, so it is recommended to clear high-level Anomaly Investigations and obtain Amber Essence, Amber Essence+, and Prime Amber Essence to have a stock of materials to use when augmenting your armor.

Choosing the Right Armor

Armor with Useful Original Skills

Armor pieces that already have useful skills, usually those commonly used in a variety of builds, can be improved even further when it is augmented.

It is possible to increase the level of an armor piece's skill which can make a big difference in hunts, especially if it is a skill that you are trying to maximize but do not have enough Decoration slots to do so.

Additionally, you may also add more Decoration slots or raise its Defense after augmenting.

Armor with Unnecessary Skills

Some builds have armor pieces that possess skills which do not contribute anything to the build. You can augment these armor pieces and try to replace the unneccessary skill with something else that may improve your build.

Furthermore, you can also improve its Defense and add additional Decoration slots to further improve the armor, especially if your build includes low rarity armor.
