Upgrades in Dragon Age Inquisition can be found on Weapons and Armor or crafted from Schematics. They will enhance certain characteristics about your equipment, provided it has the appropriate Upgrade slot necessary (not all gear does). Upgrades can vary in quality, increasing or decreasing the effectiveness. Generally speaking the more materials it takes to make the Upgrade, the better it will be. The reason for this is that the bonus given is multiplied by the number of that material used to give you the final bonus for that portion of the Upgrade. For example, if my Grip required 4 Metal and 2 Cloth, and I picked Metal that gave +1 Strength and Cloth that gave +1% Critical Damage, I would end up with a Grip that would increase my Strength by 4 and Critical Damage by 2% if placed into the Grip slot of my weapon. If I had Schematics for a Grip that required 6 Metal and 3 Cloth, my Grip would come out with 6 Strength and 3% Critical Damage, and thus would be more effective. (Note: Upgrades can be removed from any weapon or armor at the appropriate workstation)

Schematics can be purchased from Merchants or found randomly in chests or on corpses. Once acquired you can use them to make as many copies and versions of that Armor/Weapon/Upgrade as you have the materials for.

Runes can also upgrade weapons to give them various effects. All that is required is for the weapon to have a Rune slot. (Note: you cannot remove a Rune from a Weapon or Armor once placed)
