  • There is a chance that no enhancement will be added to the purified item for any of the three Vocation colors outcomes (see Purification). The absence, presence and type of enhancement may be dependent on the Vocation colors.
    • If a purified item has no enhancement, the only way to know if it could get an enhancement with another Vocation color is to load a prior save (or use Godsbane) and purify to both other colors.
  • Offline Hired Pawns wearing equipment with Dark Arisen Bonus Enhancements may not receive the benefit of the additional enhancement, even though it is still listed as the equipment's effect - e.g. Adept's Robe, and Immortal's Armor Set are so affected.
  • With Extends Duration of Attribute Boosts Applied to You arms armor in some cases the time boost is only applied to the first application of the Invigoration, such as when using Magick Rebalancer.
