History Note:
Augment Kits didn't exist at launch, and so Augment Slots only existed on a few, rare items (like when you crit a crafted item). So for the most part, the Augments themselves were hardly used. Many patches(months) later, they changed the basic mechanics so that you can Augment ANY equip-able piece of clothing/relics/earpieces/etc. and created the Augment Kit, which is a whole different story how to make those.

So if Augmenting seems kind of weird, it's probably because of the fact it's changed a lot in the last year and wasn't part of the initial design. It's a really nice change (and GREAT money sink!), but still, these types of after-the-release features sometimes just feel a bit off, so it's understandable why there's so much confusion with it.
