Default F2P / Silver Accounts (Non-Prestige) Augs, Items, Clickes

I am a cheap skate. This is the primary reason for this thread. I don't really play that much anymore so could not justify spending $$ on something that I only play once in a while. I still use a Krono or Game Card once or twice a year to get some AAs I want.

The last few years on Cazic server has not had any late evening West Coast raiders with enough people to really win any events from COTF or newer expansions and barely any from RoF. Myself and I know others decided to just let accounts go Silver. I thought I would share what I have done equipment wise after going to Silver status for the last few years.

Issues with going FTP / Silver:

1) AA:
(FTP: 250 AA Max) -- Spend AA very wisely. Defensive AAs most important.

Try to get to 85, then sell stuff to buy a Krono (silly expensive now) or just Sub for a month and go Gold (All-Access). Hint: Before you Auto-Grant after going Gold, go 100% AA and save up to your max AA (likely 75-100 AA or so) while your Gold status so next time your need to use a Krono or Resub your off to a good start to buy AAs that are not auto-granted. Try to do this on a double xp weekend. Now, enable Auto-Grant (log out and back in to get massive free AAs). Buy any remaining AAs not auto-granted and store up to your max. stored AAs for the next time you need to go Gold. You will have 6k+ AAs now. You will have a Silver Account once Gold expires. Plan to Auto-grant again at 95. Note: You can still get Merc AAs as Silver or FTP.

(Silver: 1000 AA Max.) If you Auto-Granted when you were Gold, you still can not earn AA as you will be past the 1000 AA max.
If you did not Auto-Grant, then again spend very wisely (focus on Defensive AAs and get Weapon Stances ASAP).


2) Augs: most augs from all expansions are Prestige. This limits you to mostly augs from quests, hot zones, Tier 1 COTF, or heroic. Side note: some type 3 augs are non-prestige to boost spells, etc. Also only a couple of purity augs are non-prestige. There are very few weapon augs that are usable before level 100.

3) Armor & Weapons: Last few expansions you have to stick to Tier 1 group/raid gear as everything else is Prestige. (I will not go into this as the gear is copy and paste each expansion). Note: You can't use cultural armor either as the important augs needed are Prestige). Epic is still usable.

4) Clickies: Like augs for the most part you have to use Tier 1 or quest clickies but there are some good ones. (see below)

5) Spells - you can buy rank 2 option from market place for fairly cheap or just use rank 1 spells. Not really a big deal. (does not look like this is an option anymore)

6) Mercenary: You can NOT use Journeyman level mercs as FTP or Silver. Apprentice Tier V is best you can use as a Silver account. 90% rez will be the norm. Make a cleric to rez on another account if you want 93-96% rez (not needed just an option).

7) Bazaar - You can not sell using bazaar features. When I go Gold for a month I try to sell everything I can during this time. Just store up all the extra loot on a trader character.


Non-Prestige Augs: (This list does not include type 3 augs)

Tradeskill Aug: -- ultimate aug for the crazy people that do tradeskills!
Artisan's Prize AC: 300 HP: 3000 H(all) +150 (ear slot only)

Shield AC Augs: link
Rationalist's Sigil AC: 50 HP: 195 HAgi/Int: +9
Clump of Concentrated Ethernere AC: 40 HP: 110 HAgi: +8 (rare aug and task is hard to box)
Heroic Prismatic Gemstone AC: 35
Bayle's Heraldic Crest - Secondary AC: 32 HP: 75 (Quest)
Udumbara AC: 28 HP: 170 HSta: +4 (Quest)

Charm AC Augs: link
Heroic Jewel of the Self - AC: 30 HDex: 3
Valthun's Memory Shard - AC: 15 HP: 90 (Quest)
Slipgear's Gem - AC: 10 HP: 50 (Quest)

Core AC Augs from TDS expansion and earlier: (Note: these augs are all better than heroic augs)
Jonas Dagmire's Skeletal Parrot Shoulder - AC: 40 HP: 350 HAgi/Dex/Sta: +6 (TBS Quests Reward)
Darklight Emblem AC: 45 HP: 140 HDex: +8
Possessed Stone Fragment - AC: 35 HP: 240 (Best range slot aug by far, Castle Mistmoore, Revamp)
Tumbled Jasper AC: 45 HSta: +8
Clump of Concentrated Ethernere AC: 40 HP: 110 HAgi: +8 (rare aug and task is hard to box)
Udumbara AC: 28 HP: 170 HSta: +4 (Quest)
Tavon's Polished Gemstone Head/Shoulder - AC: 34 HP: 120 (better Shoulder aug above) - Mage Summoned: (not lore, can use 2 of each)
Gnomework Gaskets AC:12 HP: 300 (New Hot Zone)
Model XLII Spatial Temporal Oculus Face - AC: 25 HP: 155 End Regen: 1 (Quest)
Dark Soul Crystal AC: 25 HP: 155 End Regen: 1 (Quest)
Imbued Feather AC 25 HDex: 3 HP: 150 (Hot Zone)

I recommend filling out your remaining augs by getting Heroic Augs. (Heroic Character)
Heroic xxx Augs: (AC: 30, HP: 40, HDex: +3)

These augs can be better than heroic augs if you are between HDex or HAgi cutoffs (Hxxx/25) (using 1AC = 10HP scale):
Bayle's Heraldic Crest - AC: 32 HP: 75 (Quest)
Frightening Salve AC: 25 HP: 125 (New Hot Zone)
Tavon's Burnished Gemstone - Feet/Leg AC: 34 (Mage Summoned) -- not Lore
Black Gemstone of Suffering AC: 20 HP: 72 HSta: +5 (Quest)
Cursed Obsidian Faycite AC: 20 HP: 72 HSta: +5 (Quest)

Non-Heroic Character Augs:
Blood of the Fallen AC: 20 HP: 135 HAgi: +3 (Quest)
Sentinel's Claw AC: 20 HP: 100 (Hot Zone)
Jonas Dagmire's Skeletal Hand - Hands AC: 15 HP: 135 (Quest)
Gears of the Mansion AC: 13 HP: 148 (New Hot Zone)
Tablet of Forgotten Lore AC: 26 HP: 15 (Hot Zone)
Gnoll's Gnawbone AC: 25 HP: 5 (Hot Zone)
Dragorn Fang AC: 10 HP: 130 HDex: +2 (Hot Zone)
-- lots of other augs from hot zones, but these still "make the cut".

Non-AC Non-Prestige Augs from COTF:
Enigmatic Teir`Dal Eye HP: 260 HDex +8
Spirit of the Wind HP: 260 HAgi: +8
Vial of Perfected Mana HP: 180 HAgi +8
-- Even with no AC these could replace some of the augs listed above to reach cut offs for HDex or HAgi.


Weapon Augs: Very few weapon augs are available before level 100 from any expansion that are decent.

Type 4 w/ Damage

Weapon Augs (Level 100+)

1H:
Exhumed Rune DMG: 5 + Rune Process
Dulled Gem of Evaporating Life DMG: 5 + 420 Heal (Target of target)
Blademaster's Writ DMG: 5 + 420 Heal Self

2H:
Putrifying Ointment DMG: 18
Petrified Titan Splinter DMG: 16
Drezdal's Skull DMG: 8 + DD process

Weapons Augs < Level 100: link
Dioptase Chip and others from the augmentation vendor in your home city.
-- Most of these are weak augs but either use one of those or better yet an AC aug: (link)


Purity: (type 13/14)
Priceless Diamond of Ethernere (Quest)
Purified Flawless Faycite Triad (Quest)
-- That is it! Only these 2 augs for purity!

If you can get the augs listed above you will have a decent aug set when all is said and done.

--- Update: there are 11+ new TBM augs that are Non-Prestige. I have not looked into those yet as I have not bought expansion.

Anyhow this is most current list of Silver/F2P augs and clickies etc that are non-prestige (Before TBM). If you have others I missed that are useful and are NON-PRESTIGE, please add below: Enjoy.

-- Side note: When Heroic Characters went on sale I splurged and spent $10 and did all the tasks for augs (30AC 40 HP +3 Dex / +3 Agi). I went mostly +dex to reach 325 HDex, I kept HAgi at 250 as that seems max for usefulness per some postings. The heroic augs have replaced almost all of the augs above.

ROS changes will be coming soonish (New max level 110, gear, spells, etc)

Excellent thread, going to sticky it if you dont mind =)

BTW, all augs in TBM are non prestige, as is the gear dropped by named in static zones... as well as the armor.

TBM is candyland for silver accounts.

Just thought I would add to the thread here... pretty much all hotzone augs are none-prestige, so here is a good list of current and previous hotzones and if alla has the info, what augs drop in them.

Default OS Revamp!

With the revamp of OS, FTP/Silver accounts have struck gold.
Everything except augs are NON-Prestige!
Once you are level 105 there is nothing even close to the gear available from this zone (T1 raid stuff maybe)

Glowing Seb Armor

Darkened Weapons & Armor

Stats are about the same as T2 EOK group gear and you do not need EOK expansion.

(Note: there are no charm, ear, finger, or range slot items from revamp OS - mine are still cotf or RoF)

TBM (type 7/8 augs)
Type 5 augs also can be worn but good luck finding any for sale.

Default Ros

ROS Expansion is now unlocked for Free Accounts! (110 Max level now)

Equipment:
Conflagrant Armor - Level 106+
Nice upgrades for basically all slots.
Belts!
-- we now can get a slow belt! (Vital Conflagrant Belt - Tendon slice 25% slow)


Conflagrant Weapons - Level 106+
-- Bastard Sword and the Great Sword are of interest.

Note: I just dinged 106 and bought spells and some of the conflagrant gear above so far. I will update the above posts after I get 110 and some new AAs etc. I still have a few Kronos from selling junk over the years, but might take a few months.
