Silly armor questions. Follow

So, I just started playing again as I'm sure a lot of people have :P

I was wondering a few things.. I might have the answer to them, but I just want to make sure, lol.

Okay, when you're looking at specs on Armor and it says "20 ability Modifier" in blue.. what exactly does that mean? And I'm assuming now you can add augments to your armor? Because I picked up a few on a quest line.. I was wondering how exactly you go about adding them.

Ability Mod itself is a math equation. So an example would be a spell or heal that does 1000 damage (without crits or AA, just go with it). Ability mod adds to the base amount (and crit amount) of that initial 1000. It does have a cap though, its 1/2 the spell damage. So if you have 499 ability mod, your spell will now do 1499, but if you have 502 ability mod, that spell will only do 1500...because half of 1000 is 500.

So the larger the damage/heal amount on your abilities, the more ability mod you benefit from having. It does effect dots, and heal over times as well as crits like I mentioned.
Things I sometimes play...

"What do you want to be when you grow up?"
"I want to be a unicorn!"
"Awww, why's that?"........
"So I can stab people with my face."

Every character can choose a God to worship. Each God has a series of quests that allow that character to become a follower. There are several rewards including one at end of the quest chain that gives you a nice pet. IRRC, you'll need to be somewhere in your 50's or 60's to complete the chain although you can begin it much earlier.

60 or 65 I believe. Only did the Bristlebane one on my Troubadour, never really looked into them otherwise.
