Diablo2Resurgence Wikia

Augmentations are items that can be transmuted in a Horadric Cube with a Magic, Rare or Crafted piece of equipment, to provide a permanent enchantment to it.

Types of Augmentations[]

There are two distinct types of augmentations that can be found in Resurgence:


To apply those augmentations, only the transmutation of the augmentation and a piece of equipment in a Horadric Cube is necessary.
Those augmentations can be found from:

Act 3 Vendor Ormus[]

  • Cannot be applied to Exceptional or Elite equipment
  • Easiest to obtain
  • Main purpose is to help with the early-to-mid leveling process
  • The only augments in the game that can be applied to Magic equipment
  • Require a gem of a certain quality
  • The gem type itself is irrelevant
  • Cost a hefty sum to buy in the early game

Act 1 Killing Field Demibosses[]

Located on the second level of Cave in Black Marsh, the Killing Fields are a home to a variety of a deadly creatures and endgame challenges. The demibosses are situated in a various locations in the Killing Fields and drop a random augment upon their defeat.


To apply those augmentations, one has to actuate them first. To actuate them, the transmutation of a non-actuated augment and a Horadric Catalyst with enough Radiant Essence is required. After actuating, those augmentations work exactly like non-actuable.
Those augmentations can be found from:
  • Nightmare+ Act 5 Vendor Anya
Note that only Hell Anya sells a full list of actuable augmentations. Nightmare Anya only sells a small number of those.


Augmentations adhere to a list of rules:
  • Augmentations do not affect item level requirements
  • Augmentations CANNOT be removed
  • A piece of equipment can only be augmented ONCE
