So, this is a quick & simple questionnaire about people’s usage of augments (Slingbow, bomb, and totem augments). If a shop sold all the augments types at competitive prices, would you buy them? I mean, do people even use them regularly and are they ready to buy them or not? If yes, which type would you buy specifically (slingbow, bomb, or totem)? I know “competitive” is very subjective but for the sake of it, let’s just assume the prices were indeed competitive (taking into consideration the prices of raw mats in the market).
the only augments I frequently use at the moment are the damage augments on slingbows, and the revive augments on totems. I haven’t really broken into augments much yet, still finishing up some projects before I delve into it more
I tried them when they did the last update on them but still found they run out too quickly to be of any real use plus they don’t stack or auto load in a slingbow so whenever you run out in the heat of battle your slingbow loses the advantage and you very rarely get the time to go back into your inventory to load another one while being attacked. A useful amount on a reasonable hunting trip also takes up valuable inventory space …but that’s just my personal experience with them.
True not auto loading is annoying. Faced that during the hunts especially when you’re quickly trying to revive someone before the wildstocks demolish you.
On the other hand, i find them helpful in adding a guaranteed effect to your weapon - something that a forger might’ve not been able to add during forging! For example, i forge range and lightness and add damage augment to the slinbow most of the time.
The way i see it is if you take just enough of them for a hunt, they will run out as soon as your slots are filling up. To cut costs, you can even take less than what is required for a full hunt and this way, they’ll even be finished before you fill up the other slots.
But yeah i agree all those problems concerning high cost, not autoloading, and taking up slots are valid. I’d recommend the devs to reconsider the cost or durability of those augments but they did this earlier aaand i think they’re too busy now with what’s coming up. Maybe later
