so if found the Tunic of Fortune which i was excited about, but then when i look at the stats the Luck on it is nerfed from 200 down to 50. is this part of the "Something about this item might be apparent when you have it enhanced" aspect?
also is there any gear worth getting given how strong the Starting armor is?

The starting armor which was greatly improved to help new players has certainly put a dent in the 'primary' arti drops. However the Arties can be enhanced by Tinkers if you obtain enough of them for him to work with.
Bottom line . . we don't know anyone who has been here a while who would drop their enhanced gear for the starter ones.
As a crafter I can tell you arties can make a powerful set but you need to collect many of the same piece so we can combine them into special gear. The result can then be spellcrafted making it even better. Crafting with runic tools and good resources can also make great gear. Matters not what you choose, greatness comes over time with patience luck good hunting and as always a crafter friend. If you go for arties I suggest you get a Davy Jones Locker to store them in or your storage bins be full
