Redirected from Augments

An augment is a special enchant-granting item that does not require the services of an enchanter to apply. Augments are available from a number of sources, including quests, faction quartermasters, blacksmiths, engineers, leatherworkers, and tailors.

Augments and enchantments do not stack. Applying any enchant, either from an augment item or enchanter, will overwrite any previous enchantment. Temporary effects like rogue poisons, oils, sharpening stones and shaman spells will not erase a permanent augment or enchantment.

Arcanum Edit

Northrend Edit

Icon-stub-22x22 The subject of this section has been removed from World of Warcraft as of Patch 5.0.4.
Wrath-Logo-Small This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

Prior to Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria, Northrend Arcana cost either 150Gold before the faction discount for the faction-based arcana or 65 Pvpcurrency-honor-both (40 Inv misc platnumdisks prior to Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm ) for the arcana purchased from Wintergrasp vendors. They were all of rare quality and require level 80. The four primary neutral factions offered arcana at honored and revered (as like the primary instance factions in Bc icon Burning Crusade), while the Alliance Vanguard/Horde Expedition arcana required exalted and the Wintergrasp arcana had no requirement other than control of Wintergrasp itself in order to purchase the arcanum. Arcana could only be placed on items you own (cannot be applied in the trade window), and would also soulbind any items that were not already soulbound if applied.

All head augments and enchants were removed with Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria.
