Notes

Augment

  • Augmentation increases an item's rarity.
    • Example: an uncommon Storage III can be augmented to a rare Storage III.
  • Increasing an item's rarity increases its stats and reduces its EquipPoints size by 1.
  • It is possible to augment a Size 1 item to a Size 0 item.
    • Example: an uncommon Burst Cannon II (size 1) can be augmented to a rare Burst Cannon II (size 0).

Rank Up/Down

  • Ranking increases or decreases the Size of Weapons, Armor, and Storage.
    • Making an item larger improves its stats slightly (per rank).
    • Making an item smaller reduces its stats slightly (per rank).
    • A Size 1 item cannot be ranked-down to Size 0.
    • A Size 0 item can be ranked-up to Size 1.
  • Ranking can be used to adjust the Ship Class of Computers and Specials.
    • Example: a Toil computer (flagship) can be ranked up to a Toil (carrier), then a to Toil (flayer), and then to a Toil (executioner)

Some ship classes share Computer and Specials and do not have Ship Ranks of their own:

Engines and Harvesters cannot be Ranked, as they do not have ship requirements.

Deconstruct

  • Unwanted items can be deconstructed for Reward Points (RP).
    • RP are used to claim ships and items with the :Reward Chat Commands.
  • An item is worth 0.01 RP for every $2,000 Credits of value.
    • Example: a item worth $300,000 credits can be deconstructed for 1.5 RP.

Repair

  • Items that have damaged Durability can be repaired.
  • Maintaining a certain amount of durability on equipment is very important!
    • Items with a durability of 5% or lower will be destroyed if a player is killed by NPCs.
    • Items with a durability of 10% or lower will be destroyed if a player is killed by an enemy player.
    • Items with a durability of 25% or lower can be stolen by enemy players when killed!
  • Items are repaired by 10% durability at a time when using the Repair feature.
