There are some people that don't know what enhancers do, when they can be useful and when not to use them. That's why I'll try to explain a bit about the different enhancers in the following few posts. Off course i don't know everything so if you know something i don't or if you spot a mistake don't hesitate to point it out As general rule: Enhancers increase the usefulness of your gear. It does that by increasing the base of an item with a certain %. This also means that the bigger/better your equipment is the more benefit you will have from using enhancers. Now this doesn't mean you should just buy the biggest stuff, it just means that for some equipment it isn't very effective to use enhancers. Some clear examples: range enhancers on a sword, or damage enhancers on weapons for the trade terminal, aren't very effective. Please note however that in a recent post someone from Mindark (the planet partner) explained that the break-rate of enhancers depends on the items you are using, so it might be beneficial to start using them on lower level gear as well, but i personally never tested that.
