This slot 11 augmentation grants the wearer the effect Ultravision.

According to my reading, this is the best vision effect in the game allowing you to see both creatures and objects better in the dark.

The info above gives me some pause. If this aug indeed allows this effect to be cast and assuming it then lets you remove the jewelry leaving the improved vision buff in place, then there may be some marginal value to this aug that I didn’t see at first. However if instead as I suspect, it must be worn to get the effect, then you would be much better off getting ahold of a Pear Cut Star Ruby, which gives the effect Faerune. You’d probably be better off with the Faerune aug anyway even if this aug does cast a lasting buff. Faerune combines Ultravision, (You see both objects and creatures better in the dark. It’s the best night vision that I’m aware of.) Enduring Breath, (you can breath underwater) and See Invisible. That’s three effects in one aug, so go for that one instead. The item augmented with the Faerune aug must be worn but the effect is always on.

Attuneable means you won’t be able to trade the aug once you put it in the item. You can however remove and reuse it when you up-grade to a higher lvl setting for it. The old setting will revert back to tradable form so you can sell or trade that when you’re done using it, but not the aug itself.

To get the full benefit of most augs you must wear the appropriate solo/duo/trio item for your lvl. I’m told that you get the next lvl bonus if you are really close to the rec but I can’t confirm this. I don’t know if this restriction applies in any way to the effects augs like Faerune though.

There is a wonderful tool out there for playing with all the different setting and aug combinations. I’d like to give credit to the creator of the “Gnomish Jewelcrafting Gizmonotron” for the basic information on stats here. To it’s creator, my thanks and appreciation. Google the quoted name for the tool and you should get the link. So far in my experience, and the experience of others, the tool has been accurate.

Trivial is pretty high. The stone doesn’t cost much, just about 2 plat and it’s available all the time from npcs. The Jewelers glass you need to make this is a little fussy to make but it’s trivial is low and all the ingredients for it can be found on the venders on the boat in the Abysmal Sea. If you do the Abysmal freebie or collect quests you will have all the skill you need to make your jewelers glass. * See the mini JC Guide at the end of this post.

Warning on Silver:

In my opinion there is no use at all for silver because Electrum has no lvl rec and gives the higher stats even to lvl 1. Unless this changes, Electrum is the twink jewelry.

Now Bazaar Info:

Extended Warning on Silver: The only exception to using these augs in Silver is if you can make it yourself and can’t make or afford something better. If you’re buying a set, keep in mind you pay for the setting and the aug/s that go in it. In most situations there will be better options for low lvl players than silver and usually at a much lower price. Never pay much more than 20plat for silver jewelry, if that. Silver only costs 10 plat and can be enchanted by low lvl players. The stats are better in Electrum even for a lvl 1 player so the value for Silver pieces just isn’t there. There’s no call to charge newbies or anyone else the 1k+ prices for the silver trio that I’ve seen up on Bristlebane.

This aug has little to no value in the bazaar as far as I’m concerned. I just don’t think this vision effect is worth the loss of better options. I don’t think there would be a market for it even if you offered it for a couple plat for newbies. There is a nice market for the Faerune aug however once you advertise the benefits. (Because a lot of players don’t realize the option of a Faerune aug is out there yet) Some shoppers pay good prices to get see invisible, ultravision, and enduring breath from potions and other sources and appreciate having another option. The effect isn’t a cast buff though, the piece it’s in must be worn to get the effect.

* Mini JC Guide: **Lvl to 15. Go to your hometown and follow the instructions of the whispering voice to get your Adventurer’s Stone. (lvl/stone no longer needed see note below) Go to the guildhall Magus and transport to Nedria’s Landing and from there to the Abysmal Sea. Do either the freebie or collect quest there. You’re skill lvl is now high enough to make your Jeweler’s Glass with the least trouble, so make it before you leave Abysmal. Now go to Freeport and start the testing to get your JC Trophy. It is easiest to get at low lvls and will evolve as you skill-up naturally. You won’t be allowed to start testing if you don’t have enough skill though so doing it after you do the abysmal quest is the perfect time. Now start cutting augs, with vender gems at first, then move to baz bought gems when it becomes cost effective. Most Uncuts and Nihilite have been pretty cheap and can get you to 300 fast and easy, though not always cheap. Shimmering Nihilite, and Uncut Rubellite can even max out your Trophy but they are usually more expensive than those that trivial under 300. You may need to learn how to earn money in the baz from time to time as you progress. If you want to farm your way to JC mastery though, good luck, because I can’t help you there. Enjoy! ;)

*Mini Guide Update: (2/29/08)

You no longer need the stone before you can get transported to Abysmal by the Brotherhood Majus. The requirement has been dropped recently and the Majus will now transport anyone to Nedaria’s Landing and then from there on to the Abysmal Sea. So now there’s no need to wait to reach the best freebie trade-skill quests in the game and it’s a wonderful advantage if you want to make your own equipment and provisions as you go. Going for a swim from the floating platform is fine but just make sure you don’t fall/jump off the boat. Instant Death! In this case… Lev is good. Sow is bad.
