I get it. Reading is hard. So i'll repeat myself. The change is only for moddable gear, the change is not just affecting moddable gear. Most of the community doesnt want it, most of the community seems to hate it. What is the justification for the change?
I get it, reading is hard, so I'll write what the patch notes said for you.
"Item sell values and item repair costs now reflect the value of the items and any enhancements attached to them. Previously, items were incorrectly being valued without their enhancements."
It doesn't specify modable gear but it mentions enhancements add to the price now too.
You can augment any gear (except the matrix shard)
I know its a broad statement, but its not as simple as saying "MODABLE GEAR ONLY"
