Edit: As of the December update, much of the additional buffs were nerfed/removed. Sorry guys :(
There's some new info out now about the finer details on the Augments Songs bonus on the BRD Empyrean+2 gear.
Most people already know that some songs provide stat bonuses (INT, DEX, STR, etc) on certain songs. The stat given is based on the element of the song, and the amount given is based on how many pieces you wear (2 pieces = +1, 3 = +2).
What was recently confirmed (by a reputable source) is that some songs are augmented in different ways.
Here is what is reported:
Sentinel's Scherzo - 2 Pieces - Raises the amount of damage reduced by severe attacks (more than +75% of your HP) to -95%. No change when third piece is added.
Elemental Carol II - 2 Pieces - Changes "Sometimes nullifies damage" to 100% chance. No change when third piece is added.
Goes without saying, this is pretty epic. It can easily turn some difficult fights into walks in the park, fix PLD (or break it by not requiring one), allow BRD to survive hard hitting attacks, and (in some cases) solo NMs.
