I'm not trying to steal this from Fable, Star Ocean, Final Fantasy, etc. I'm just trying to suggest that this be something in the game, I think it would be interesting to have this and a lot of people think it would be a fantastic idea to put into the game, it's not stealing. Tons of games have the ability to make magical weapons and armor and stuff, I think it's B.S. that it's a bad idea because I "SUGGESTED" that they do what many games before have done.
P.S. It doesn't have to be called Augmentation Skill or Item Synthesis or something, I'm sure that people could come up with other names
Add elements to weapons and items through magical augmentation. Each jewel has a corresponding element... say you have a ruby and a rune bar, they should make it so that you smith the stone into the weapon and give it the power of the element corresponding to the stone, that means you now have a "Burning Rune Longsword", or a "Burning Rune Ax", or etc. Or any other element you can think of. The better you are at augmentating weapons or armor, the better chance you have of adding the element to it instead of making a regular sword. Also the higher your level for your Augmentation skill the more elements you can add to a sword, eventually after getting all regular elements you could be able to put multiple elements into a weapon or armor.
If you have any suggestions then post them.
WARNING: If you want to accuse me of "stealing" an idea save it
