Smoke & Mirrors Augment Help

Hello everyone!

I’ve been playing MK11 for a few months now, and have a pretty good understanding of how everything works. I am in the process of completing all of the key items/puzzles in the Krypt, and therefore would like to farm more Souls, since the next item I need to obtain requires 10,000. I am around 14k right now, however I am CONSTANTLY opening and resetting chests as well as soul “containers”(?), so obtaining that item will pretty much wipe me out. I researched and found a farming technique on YouTube, and I have all of the required augments, except for a Dragon Blood augment called “Smoke & Mirrors”. I was wondering what the best and most efficient route of farming this particular augment would be? I have seen rewards for certain towers being Random Blood Augments, but those aren’t too often, and they’re mostly on the hardest towers. The ones I see most often (especially in Brutal modes) are rewards that will say “Gear, Kosmetic, or Augment” for Selected Character-Random or “Level 1-3 Mortal Augment”. I’m not really sure what a “Mortal” augment even is, but I do know gear, skins, etc. come in Mortal, Elder, Mythic, etc. variations, but wasn’t aware augments did. I also didn’t know if Blood augments could even be received from a reward that said “Level 1-3 (Mortal) Augment”, since Bloods are the only ones that don’t have levels. I’ve been running MANY of the towers that have these type of “random gear/augment/skin” rewards with my main Noob Saibot, since I’ve already unlocked pretty much every unlockable tower gear and skin recolor for him, to improve the odds of receiving an augment instead of a skin or gear. Like I said, I’ve also been opening MANY Krypt chests (both koin AND soul), and occasionally splashing some koins in the shrine. The problem is, I don’t know which amount of koins I should be selecting to increase my chances of getting augments (specifically Bloods), and it seems as though lower amounts reward lvl 1-2 Soul, order, etc. augments and konsumables, while higher amounts are giving mostly konsumables, forge reagents, and gear. I’m really just trying to figure out which method I should continue with to be most time-efficient in obtaining this particular augment, and everything online has just been saying towers, krypt, and shrine, but nothing really specific. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

**Update** I just got done with an opening spree in the Krypt for a little over an hour. I spent about 750k coins on the Shrine, just got a bunch of Konsumables, some forge items, some skins, and only a handful of maybe 3-5 Augments, all being either low leveled Soul, Order, or Chaos. I opened about 40ish chests, spending around 500k, only found soul, order, and a few flames. Next I opened around 40 soul containers, spending 4k souls, and while these gave augments WAAAY more than koin chests did, they were ALL either soul or flame, with an order or chaos every now and then. Lastly, I finished about 15-20 Towers of Time today, all that had “Random Lvl 1-3 Augment” as one of the awards. Out of all this I did JUST today, I didn’t just not get the Smoke & Mirrors augment I needed, I didn’t get a SINGLE Blood augment whatsoever. I checked in my augment inventory, and turns out I haven’t gotten a single Dragon Blood augment for about 6 days now, the past 3 of which I was purposefully trying to farm for them. What am I doing wrong? I play anywhere from 5-7 hours a DAY (in quarantine), and like I said the past 3 days I’ve only been doing things that reward augments. I just don’t understand, especially when considering I already have about 50 other blood augments. Am I looking in the wrong places? This CAN’T statistically be right. After doing ALL of that, there’s no way I didn’t get a SINGLE blood augment of ANY variety. So stressed lol.

I also need Smoke and Mirrors. You can farm blood augments by doing the tag assist tower (I think it’s called that— the group one) when if resets. You can also look for single opponent towers and complete them on brutal difficulty. Sometimes blood augments will pop up. Also, you can get to stage 6 in character towers and do those on brutal for augments.

You can equip soul augments to your gear to get more souls by doing the augments requirements in towers for more souls. Ranked matches give 50 souls every won set but augments dont work online. You need to have the gear equipped on your Kostomization card/variation wise to get tthe soul augment bonuses in towers if the tower is too hard use defence or damage augments or skip the fight. I Dont Know a goood farming route ive only just started the Kkrypt myself. I dont wat any Spoilers ill be doing the whole Krypt The good ole fashion way a solo 100% run threw. Iv got all the wahy to the pit and to the Hive area and back im looking to get to the throne room area now.

Normal, Mortal and Mythic is like a status for gear augments and skins. Its also has a Ranking System for augments Normal being low rank 1 Mortal Middle Rank 2 and Mythic Being High Rank 3...Everything has a Percentage Chance to drop in towers whether it gives you skins Augments Gear or Whatever and the higher the Rank the lower Drop Rate Percentage will be on every item from chests... But when you get that item from a Tower or the Shrine Idk what they replace item with in the Krypt Chests if you havnt opened that chest yet it might be a throw up between Koins, Soul's and Hearts. They might have a code thats like a six sided die with two 1's two 2's and two 3's when you get an item from a tower or shrine the code might roll that dice script and if it lands on 1 it replaces the item in its chest with souls. If it rolls 2 it replaces the item with Koins get a 3 hearts go in that items chest in the items place.atleast this is how i see it. The drop rate for currency may Vary seeing how Souls and hearts are worth more then Koins. But I havnt looked into the games code so I cannot say.

Edit

Maybe Normal Items will be replaced with Koins, Mortal items replaced with Souls and Mythic items will be replaced with hearts if that items chest has not been opened and you obtain the item threw other meens...this could be a way to obtain currency aswell if you know what youve obtained threw towers and the shrine and knew which chest they were originally placed in.

There has Got To be a Perfect Farming Route to unlock every single chest going into a fresh Krypt With no Kurrency but im sure it has to be done down to the Very Tee. There should be an Achievment for it. Call it Test You're Luck LMAO. Requirements Unlock everything on Shang Tsung's Island Krypt Ruins Without Having Spent any Kurrency Gained outside of the Krypt. I bet that would be the Rarest Achievment on this Gen.
