What are augments used for? I get them with slicing, but can't find a use for them.

They mention upgrading items and armor, but they're not usable, and none of the items with modslots I've found (multiple oranges) have an augmentation slot. What do I do with them?

Used to modify exceptional crafted armor and weapons.

I made one exceptional item once. is it just a random thing when you're crafting that it may be an exceptional piece?

So, to confirm. If you crit (what % is that.. like 10?) a crafted item, weapon or armor, it will get the augmentation slot. Yet a fair amount of slicing missions will return this augment. So in short the market will be FLOODED with these things?

I managed to craft some gear with augment slots, but I usually reverse engineer them for mats.

Come end game, I see them being useful. I use synthweaving, and will crit and make some gear with the slot. Our guild leader is slicer and will send me the augments when he has them. So it can add a +3 to strength, which is not bad. So try putting them up on the GTN and see what happens. *shrug*

There is also the potential to *crit when crafting an orange (custom) schematic..

That would be a nice place for an augment.. essentially giving you a free mod slot, in addition to the normal 3 in armor.
