Finding the Right Enhancement
How Many Enhancements Are There?!?
48, at level 49 anyway. That's a lot to try to look through to find what you want. Often the names themselves don't hint at what stats the give. All (except one) give Endurance, 1 Secondary stat (Absorption, Critical, Defense, or Power) and 1 Tertiary stat (Accuracy, Alacrity, Shield, or Surge). You can split them into 2 big groups: 1 that gives more Endurance but less of the Secondary stat, and 1 that gives less Endurance but more of the Secondary stat.
The one odd exception is "Reflective" which gives low Endurance, and large amounts of both Crit and Power, while still giving the standard amount of Shield (Tertiary). I'm guessing that's a bug since it otherwise makes "Skirmish" pointless (exact same stats, just no Power) and there isn't a matching one with low Endurance, Power, and Shield.
There are a lot of pointless duplicates too. I'd hoped they would clean those up in the 1.2 patch, but obviously not. Bulwark and Vigilant are identical. Foresight and Verity and the same. Bastion and Steadfast. Erudition and Veracity. Acute and Intensity. Cognizant and Lucid. Sagacity and Sentient. Inertial and Ward. Volition and Warfare. Assault and Wily. Astute and Intuition. Adroit and Wisdom. Incisive and Severe. Proficient and Studious. Barrage and Savant. Discipline and Efficient. Nearly HALF of them are duplicates. Nice job, designers.
So what do you do if you want to find the ideal enhancements? You come here and reference the handy chart. You can toggle which statistics you want to see and to sort by the various columns, just click the column header. Stats are shown for the Premium/Green versions. Prototype/Blue and Artifact/Purple versions maintain the same stat ratios.
