Proven Ways To Augment Ancient Item ASAP in Diablo 3

Augment Ancient Item

Want to know how to augment ancient items in Diablo 3? I think you should start by reading this short how-to-guide first. In the game of Diablo, your goal is to kill as many enemies as possible and acquire new weapons and armor. You can do this while playing the game, but what you really want to do is learn how to augment an item so you can customize your gameplay.

What is Augmenting in Diablo 3?

If you are a fan of Diablo 3, then you might already know what augmenting is, but if you don’t know what it is, then I briefly explain it to you. Augmenting is a recipe for the code of Kanai’s queue that allows you to put in an ancient item, a legendary gem, and three max level gems to put a primary stat on that piece of gear. If you are going to augment a weapon, the legendary gem must be at least thirty levels. Also, it has to be level forty or higher for the jewelry. And for other gears like shields, quivers have to be a minimum of 50 levels.

When you add three max level gems to any gear they will determine what primary stat gets put on for example:

  • Emerald: Gives you dexterity.
  • Ruby: Gives you strength.
  • Topaz: Gives you intellect.
  • Amethyst: Gives you vitality.

Requirements for Augmenting Ancient Items

Requirements for Augmenting Ancient Items

To augment an Ancient weapon, a Legendary Gem of Rank 30 or Greater is required. Augmenting an Ancient or Primal Ancient Ring or Amulet Calls for a Legendary Gem of Rank 40 or high while augmenting an Ancient or Primal Ancient Part of armor Needs a Legendary Gem of Rank 50 or greater. The higher the position of the Legendary Gem used, the greater feature points will be added to your product.

Note: You can’t augment two to double the effect. However, if you augment another time, it simply overwrites the initial augment.

Best Ways to Augment Ancient Item in Diablo 3

There are two ways to augment an ancient item in Diablo 3. The first way is straightforward and obvious, but the second method requires some time and practice. The basic idea behind this method is that you need to find ancient items that drop more powerful items that can be augmented. You can do this by either farming the monsters that drop these items or picking up items augmenting stones or other resources.

Once you have an item that you think can be augmented, go to the game options and look for the “augment” option. The augment option is right next to the augment skill. If you click on it, a new dropdown menu will appear. On the dropdown menu, you will see an option for “use enchanted”. Use this option to apply the enchant to your item.

The downside of this method is that you have to right-click the item while in the inventory to use it. For some people, this is not a big deal. However, I’ve played many games where you have to swing your weapon or cast a spell to use an augment. The other downside is that if you get hit by an enemy, you have to drop the item to get some cash. Sometimes you have to drop multiple items in order to make up for the lost item. It can be tedious and time-consuming.

Not Recommended Way to Augment Ancient Item

Another way to augment ancient items without the use of mods or cheats is to find an augment enhancer. Some augment enhancers are potions that automatically give you an increase in either your melee or ranged skill. You can level either skill up by using the potions. However, using these potions is not allowed in certain areas or quests. The downside of this method is that you cannot pick up the various enchantments that come with the potions.

In conclusion, augmenting an ancient item in Diablo 3 is possible, but it is worth spending some time learning how to do it properly. The right combination of gems and a little patience can make leveling faster and easier. Just make sure that you do not abuse your account by spamming the auction houses. It would help if you also played the game according to the game’s rules to the extent that you don’t get banned.
