    One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    My patron told me that every time my timer is up for the AUG gem to get it regardless of having the XP to spend on acquiring an aug .... well ....... me being not as systematic as some really didn't both with it till I had the spare XP ....... now that I realize getting all the aug's I want with the 2 week timer will take a good few months to achieve (10X enduring calm, 3 x 25% more salvage, 5x spell duration, 3 x rating augs, 1 x 10% health, + a few more = 25 gems till I'm finished with everything I want ... 25 x 2 weeks = aaarrrggg!! )

    Sssoooooooo any players lower than 200 don't do what I have done get your AUG gems every chance you can :-) :-) :-) .... it pays to know how the game mechanics work especially in this case ......

    Having said all that I'm totally enjoying higher lvls and the content that opens up for you .... finally can kill those pesky Ninja's too :-) that makes me happy :-)

    they should drop those timers down... it shouldn't take a year of waiting for timers to get all ur augs, that's just stupid.

    Re: One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    All quests that give a blank aug gem are on a 13 day timer.

    1. Eater jaw/Bellas (lvl 125+)
    2. Diemos (10 colo wins & Diemos flagging)
    3. Society Aug (lvl 180+ & Society Master)
    4. Luminance Aug (lvl 200+ & 100,000 luminance)

    Re: One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    ok thanks for all that the way I see it to make it "easier" on yourself (please note my post was not a complaint it was more of a post to head the advise of your elders early on) :-)

    1. Eater Jaw / Sir Bellas ... multiple gems can be collected from lvl 125 onwards (this is far by the easiest path if you start early enough)

    2. Diemos .... this required 10 colo win runs completed and fashioning a Empyrean Golem Stone (once completed no need to repeat) and then defeating Diemos for gem

    3. Luminance ... 100,000 luminance cost for a gem

    4. Society Infiltration quest .... req's being rank Master, and being in a society of course


    1 and 2 are the only options for me right now ... I will have to start doing more quests with lum as a reward not sure I can get 100,000 lum every 13 days (I know some can) .. have not done a win run yet and am not in a society as of yet either

    cheers all :-)

    Re: One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    As an extra lesson, I'd recommend you spent Luminance on Luminance rewards instead of Augmentation gems.
    Most peeps in my allegiance trade in the blank aug gem on lum nowadays.

    I REALLY don't like you...

    You dismiss one of the major flaws of the game by making the near impossible seem easy.
    I have been back for a few months, play on FF, the most populated white server, in one of the largest clans.

    I still have only 2 Colo wins.

    I have responded to DOZENS of attempts to form colo groups and they are NEVER successful at getting together a full group!

    So, for the time being there are only 3 ways to get augs that actually happen for the majority of players.

    Also, it takes quite awhile to get to Master in a society.

    Also you have to be level 200+ to even flag for Lum.

    SO your statement that a new or returning player can get 4 aug gems every 2 weeks is a FLAT OUT LIE!


    This whole Augmentation mechanic needs another look. In theory it sounds good but the reality is that it has MAJOR flaws!

    Re: One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    I came back as a new player and fully aug'd in less than a year. That was from level 125.

    I did spend Luminance though, to catch up.

    Re: One big leason I've learned (learnt??)

    Should just make the aug system like luminance in that you just purchase augs with experience without an 'aug gem.' I came back in dec '10 and my mains still don't have all their augs. (PvP related yes, all the frills, no). I'm diemos flagged and all that **** it just isn't fun to do any of the aug processes.

    Learn how to run it and lead it for a group of your own, on SC we beat it 2x a week and open to taking new players.

    It takes, I believe, about 3 weeks now due to the shortened timers.

    No, it isn't, but it does require the player to meet a few checkmarks before attaining them at that rate.

    On one's own, pre-200, a player can get 4 a month. Once you hit 200 (at this point most of your skills are maxed, freeing up the xp for augs), you can increase it to 6 a month via luminance.
