Orbs of Augmentation are most often used to add an additional affix to a magic item with only one affix. Unlike its much rarer cousin the Exalted Orb, Orbs of Augmentation are commonly and frequently used by all players, often in conjunction with an Orb of Transmutation and Orbs of Alteration. At low levels or in races, they may be used to quickly craft useful magic items before stronger rare items can be found to replace them. They are also used on strongboxes to potentially improve the items dropped. At high levels, Orbs of Augmentation are used in conjunction with Orbs of Alteration to craft magic items with top-tier affixes as the first step in a long crafting process to produce a high-end rare item. They are also used to craft desirable affixes on maps.
Orbs of Augmentation can be used to purchase certain low-level magic items directly from vendors. One can also sell 4 Orbs of Augmentation to Nessa in exchange for an Orb of Alteration, or 64 Orbs of Augmentation to Haku for 20 Orb of Alteration once daily. They also are used in the following vendor recipes:
|Magic Boots with 10% increased Movement Speed ×1|
|Magic Boots with (X+5)% increased Movement Speed ×1|
|Weapon with x added damage ×1|
|Ring or amulet with +x to Chaos Resistance ×1|
