The augment system is a bunch of crap... it was the beginning of the end of this game for me. I'm still playing but not nearly as much as I used to and I can see the end is near.
It just completely defeats the purpose of a MMORPG for me. I like to know that through hard work and patience I will eventually build my character, make it stronger, get better gear, etc. This augment BS is complete luck. I've read threads where people augment an Aquillo's Staff and get like MAB+5 first try (or something insanely good like that), and others who have dumped like 20 Aquillo's Staves and got garbage back each time.
Anyway, the Behemoth Ring crap is just another example. I spent a metric ton of gil getting my crafting up and buying materials to sign two Behemoth Ring +1's back when they were epic, now you can augment a lolnq and make something superior, but only through dumb luck. Fail.
