The [[Enhancement|enhancive]] system has been updated to properly factor in [[Constitution]] enhancive effects when determining a player's Maximum [[Health]] level. Previously, an enhanced Constitution score did not cause players to gain (or lose, in the case of Constitution penalties) maximum health. This has now been corrected. One of the more noticeable effects of this change will be its impact on [[Death's Sting]], as its Constitution penalty will now also reduce Maximum Health.

Almost anything can have enhancive properties added. The only item I know for sure off the top of my head that doesn't work with the enhancive system is jewelry for piercings.

Enhancive items have a set number of charges (but how many is different from item to item). The premium enhancives come with a lot of charges compared to most other items in the game. The charges are drained via a random roll system. The chance to lose a charge each time is quite small, but the longer you leave an item activated the more this will catch up to you.
There is a chance to lose a charge when you activate the item (which would be getting it in your hand if it's a weapon or shield or wearing it if it's a worn item). Then while an item is active there are periodic rolls made to see if a charge is lost. So the more you have an item active the more of these rolls take place.

People who keep their item active and are in the game for long periods of time tend to use up their enhancives much quicker than people who only keep theirs active for shorter periods or are not in the game as much. Of course there's also some luck to that and if the rolls go against you your item might seem to lose charges more quickly than someone else's, or if they go in your favor last much longer.
