Default Accesory Augmentation

Ok here's the deal, I augmented my jewels and after several millions I got:

Neck with Fire Pdef
Earring with Fire Pdef
Earring with Water Pdef
Ring with Wind Pdef
Ring with wind Pdef

All of the above i got by using different level accesory lifestones, so heres the question:

The neck and the earring stack and I get +8 Fire resistance, same with both wind rings +8 wind resistance, however when I got the other earring (the one now has water resistance) with a fire resistance it did not stack anymore!.

My question is:

How do jewel augmentation works and what/when can a resistance stack or not?. I would love to have a full set with water or fire resistance and get +20 fire/water resistance, but i don't want to blow all that money/time/effort if there's ingame logic that prevents this. Does anyone know how thir truly work?

Thanks

I know for a fact that Holy resistance from jewelry augmentation does not stack. I got two earrings with Holy resistance passive and my attribute stats did not change from having one earring on, to two earrings on.

Aside from that, not sure. I'm too cheap to play with jewelry augments more than what I already got on there the first try =P

Well, i could be wrong here, but I think that earrings and rings, since there are two of them, don't have the attributes stack. Instead of wind on both rings, get it on an earring and a ring, same with the other attribute you want.

It's like boss jewels. 2 AQ rings can be worn, but do not stack.

You might be right. I remember augmenting my jewels, and had two Water p.def augs on my rings, and they wouldn't stack either, so I ditched one and ended up getting a Shock resistance lol...that worked

Well I thought that too at first but then I got the 2 rings with wind def and they stacked, earlier I had gotten one of them with fire def and did not stack with the neck & ear. Anyway I will stop augmenting them until I figure this out some other way.

I want to try augmenting some of my jewels and some higher grade weapons but I can't get the local blacksmith to do it. I was able to make an accessory lifestone with the blacksmith, but he won't accept a piece of jewelry in the augmentation screen. also, he won't suggest anything but D gem, which does not work with C+ items. Do I need to go to the BS of Mammon to augment accessories and higher grade items? And yes, I know the the different levels etc.

Just do what the BS tells u He's right! Just make sure your toon is the level or higher of the stones that you've got. Iirc, the gemstones are a level lower than the object.

Unhappy Re: Accesory Augmentation

That's just my point! It's not working. I get the augmentation screen. I move the necklace/ring to the object square. it says, "not an appropriate item" or it will take an item, but not the stone, or it takes the two, asks for 20 D gems, I put them in and it aborts. I'm equal or higher level with the stones I try to use, I'm using real jewelry, not common, I've never seen it ask for anything but D gems, but its not working. I'm flummoxed. And yes I've made it an accessory stone, not the standard stone. I've read and reread the menu for another choice, but there's just standard augmentation and making an accessory stone, there's no other screen. I must be missing something but don't see it.

I have augmented weapons, so I do know the drill. Just can't seem to do accessories.

Well, accessories require 250 gemstones (s grade ones... maybe a little less for A grade ... so maybe that's the problem?

Well, surely that's not something I guess at. The dialogue should tell you what is required. So what are the steps?
1. I walk up to the BS and select augment item
2. A screen comes up with 3 squares: item - stone - gem
3. I am lvl 55, Im using a 55 accessory stone, does it have to be a B grade item?
(I have been trying it out on D/C grade items)
4. If the items stay in their boxes, presumably the 3rd box tells me how many of what gem
(all I've ever seen come up are 20 D gems)
and then it should work, right?

sigh.... so what are you all doing when you do it?

hmmm. if it is asking for 20 D gems, then something is wrong. Accessory items are much higher # of gemstones than that. You can use any level stone, regular or accessory that is your level or lower on any item that is your grade or lower.

Maybe you should screen shot it and post that, or submit a ticket to the Help desk.

For accessory Life stones you can only use them on Jewelry of lvl c or higher any grade LS can be used on any Grade jewelry so long as your the level of the LS. As a Secondary Note any A / S Jewelry MUST be unsealed before attempting.
Last Jewelry i did cost 300 C(or B cant remember which) gemstones, 1 Life stone, and the A grade Majestic Earing

For weapons you can only use any regular/Mid/High/Top stones following the rule above of being the same lvl or higher then the stones level.

A regular C weapon Uses 20 D Gemstones, 1 Life stone, and the weapon
A regular B weapon Uses 30 D Gemstones, 1 Life stone, and the weapon
A regular A weapon Uses 20 C Gemstones, 1 Life Stone, and the weapon
A regular S weapon Uses 30 C Gemstones, 1 Life Stone, and the weapon

OK, thanks. I will try again and take snapshots if it doesn't work. I just augmented a weapon with a regular high-grade stone, so I do know how to do it. I just haven't been able to do accessories.

I DID IT! Finally! Augmented two C jewels for my SE who dies at the drop of a hat. Very nice -- increased mp, matk, mdef and hp regeneration. Thanks for encouragement. Used C jewel, Accessory Life stone and 200 D gems. Still not sure what I was doing wrong earlier, but ok now.

Nope. Total mystery. Maybe it was just a bad day.
