A system has been added that will automatically add divination cards and other items to the item acquisition sections where appropriate. Entries added by this system will be shown as automatic in the item acquisition section.

Some pages will need to be updated to include upgraded_from_disabled=true if they are not eligible for the system.

Some further details on what needs to be done can be found on Path of Exile Wiki:To-do list/Automatic upgraded from and issues can be posted on the talk page.

One can sell any piece of armour with 20% quality to any vendor in exchange for an Armourer's Scrap.

One can sell any number of pieces of armour whose total quality is at least 40% to any vendor in exchange for an Armourer's Scrap.
