Depending on when you first played, I think high-level enchants got more expensive. So it might be that you used to have been able to upgrade with just 1 Kraken's Eye, but now you need 2.

I've played as soon as the game came out.Are Kraken Eyes still used to upgrade gear?

Two eyes upgrade armor/shields/one handed to Superb (you need four eyes for two-handers). Nice for armor, since it lets you save on the fairly rare Adra Ban.

They replace the normal Superb upgrade, allowing you to save money/ingredients.

Ohh so you can upgrade either with Kraken Eye or with money\gems,so eye is just the alternative and not the nessesary component?Now it makes sense!

For making you feel guilty about stealing it from that barkeep, of course.  :shifty:

It works, too. I can steal it, but not without a tinge of guilt.

I think you need to have at least 2 of them :)
 
Edit:  Not sure though but without 2 I think the option is not there and how many are there is the real question!!

The eye is used to remind the barkeep in port Maje about the proudest day in his life. He gets so sad if it's lost...
