## What is an Intensification Item?[]

Every Imperium's Intensification item, or "iii" for short, is an aug.

## How do I get iii's?[]

There are 3 organic ways to earn iii's. Find them on Treasure Goblins, purchase them from Greedy Goblin in the Guild Lobby for AA, and earn them as rewards for completing assaults and skirmishes. You can also trade other players for them.

#### Treasure Goblins[]

Anytime you kill a mob that is even con or higher there is a chance that a Treasure Goblin will spawn. Every Goblin drops a bag of plat and 1 iii.

#### Greedy Goblin[]

The Greedy Goblin sells them for the following prices:

- 100 iii = 5,000 AA
- 50 iii = 2500 AA
- 10 iii = 500 AA
- 1 iii = 50 AA

#### Assaults and Skirmishes[]

Every assault you complete from Ash and Bad Ash rewards you with (5) iii. For every skirmish you complete from Ash rewards you with (1) iii per named killed.

## What do I do with the iii's?[]

The individual augs can be combined in a jeweler's kit to increase their potency. The easiest way to find the combines in the jeweler's kit is to search for the rank you are trying to make. Search "2" in the jeweler's kit to find the combine for rank 2, Search "150" to find the combine for rank 150, etc.

## Wait, you really mean I have to click THAT much to combine all of those?[]

An NPC named Convertatron has been added to guild hall (`#zone 345 -89 -56 4`

) that sells ranks 1 - 10 so you can quickly combine. It also sells the Imperium's Intensification Inhancer Item which is used in most of the combines.

## What benefit is there to ranking up this aug?[]

As you rank up the iii you will receive an incremental increase to your stats.

At rank 100 you gain the focus effect Imperium's Intense Enchancement, 50% buff duration (10% more than the HF aug)

At rank 200 you gain the clicked effect Ultima, which is a single target direct damage spell that scales with spell damage and can crit. With 25,100 spell damage, ultimate hits between 40k and 140k. 5 minute cool down.

## Exactly how many iii do I need to rank up the iii?[]

In short, you will need 36,124 iii to create the maximum rank of 200. See the Appendix A at the end of this guide for a detailed explanation.

## Appendix A[]

- Total AA cost if all iii are purchased from Greedy Goblin

180,620,000

- Total plat cost if all iii are purchased from Greedy Goblin

45,155,000,000

## Explanation of cost progression[]

Rank 1 through 10 doubles each rank. It takes (2) rank 0 iii to make (1) rank 1 iii. It takes (2) rank 1 iii to make (1) rank 2 iii. It takes (2) rank 2 iii to make (1) rank 3 iii. This formula is the most daunting and remains constant until you make rank 11, which requires (2) rank 10s. Note: You could save up (1,000) rank 1s and do a quick combine to get to get rank 10 faster.

Once you are rank 11, you need (100) uncombined rank 1 iii plus your previous rank aug to make the next rank. Example: to make rank 12, you need your rank 11 iii and (100) uncombined rank 1 iii. This formula is true for all ranks up to 200, EXCEPT for every multiple of 10.

Starting at rank 20, every rank that is a multiple of 10 (rank 20, rank 30, rank 40, etc) requires your "main aug" and a rank 10 to progress. Example: In order to make rank 21, you need your rank 20 aug and a fully combined rank 10.
