Rarity changes the amount of times a piece of armor can be upgraded after augmentation.
Rarity 8 armor can be augmented 10 times, maxing it at level 11, giving it
Rarity 7 armor can be augmented 13 times, maxing it at level 14, giving it
Rarity 6 armor can be augmented 16 times, maxing it at level 17, giving it
Rarity 5 armor can be augmented 19 times, maxing it at level 20, giving it
While going through the list of armors we can notice that while rarity and their defenses seem to be random, the follow a pattern.
Rarity 8 has armor with a maximum augmented defense of
72 -> 92
Rarity 7 has armor with a maximum augmented defense of
64 -> 90
Rarity 6 has armor with a maximum augmented defense of
56 -> 88
Rarity 5 has armor with a maximum augmented defense of
48 -> 86
The amount of times they can be augmented also seems to follow a step ladder of 3 times.
If we did get a hypothetical Rarity 9;
Rarity 9 armor could be augmented 7 times, maxing it at level 8, giving it
If it's Max Base Defense would be
80, it could be augmented to a maximum defense of
Using the graphic below to look at how these augmentations interact with each other, interestingly Rarity 7 and Rarity 8 armors are rather comparable. It does make room for lower rarity armors to become very promising, if their starting base defense is high.
|Rarity 8||70||90||Rarity 7||64||90|
|Rarity 8||68||88||Rarity 7||62||88||Rarity 6||56||88|
|Rarity 8||66||86||Rarity 7||60||86||Rarity 6||54||86||Rarity 5||48||86|
|Rarity 8||64||84||Rarity 7||58||84||Rarity 6||52||84||Rarity 5||46||84|
|Rarity 8||62||82||Rarity 7||56||82||Rarity 6||50||82||Rarity 5||44||82|
|Rarity 6||48||80||Rarity 5||42||80|
