Certain weapons can be augmented, or buffed, through various spells and pine resins. These augmentations typically grant the weapon temporary Elemental Damage but can also grant the Poison auxiliary effect.
Weapons upgraded down the Standard, Raw, and Crystal upgrade paths can all be augmented. Some Dragon weapons and most weapons upgraded with Twinkling Titanite cannot be augmented, although exceptions do exist.
- Switching or unequipping an augmented item will instantly cancel the effect.
- This can be used to apply new augmentations, or to refresh the duration of one that was already cast.
- Augmentations can not be applied to weapons equipped in the off-hand, with the exception of shields.
- Magic Shield variants are the only augmentations that can be applied to shields, and vice versa.

The "Tumblebuff" glitch allows any weapon to be augmented, even those usually forbidden. After rolling and activating a Catalyst or Talisman, the player must quickly open the equipment menu and exchange their equipped Standard, Crystal or Raw weapon for their target weapon, typically a non-augmentable weapon. If the player times it correctly, the casting animation will begin, but the target weapon will be buffed instead of the previously equipped weapon
This glitch is an uncommon find in PvP, but its use is frowned upon by almost all of the community.
