How do Augments interact with the Heavy Spear? Do they trigger on each target? So +2 attack on each, 2 shields, heal 4, etc.

Augments trigger on each melee attack, so if you use item 26 and make two melee attacks, the Augments trigger for both.

ridiculous setup using mindthief, high level tinkerer, and high level spellweaver.
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Tinkerer uses "Chimeric Formula" to let Mindthief recover Inferno from Spellweaver's lost pile.
Mindthief then uses Inferno (which is a melee attack) in a room full of enemies, which triggers whatever Augment they have in place a bunch of times.

What Stephen said!

Just be careful with augments which consume Elements, in particular the Phantasmal Killer augment which consumes dark: it cannot be applied to multiple melee attacks on your turn b/c dark is consumed (i.e. inert) after one attack and cannot be consumed for the other attacks and the attack gets turned into a 'kill' which means you can no longer apply e.g. Long Spear.

The Frozen Mind augment can be turned into an AoE via Long Spear or Battle-Axe though, but that's only b/c of the order in which you apply the augment vs. items and doesn't work in general for multi-target attack abilities.
For more details see this thread.

Hahah. Play this with the Vicious Blood Augment in a room with 8 monsters for Retaliate 16. Pair it with Mass Hysteria/Feedback Loop for Shield 8, Retaliate 16. Tankthief.

It's important to note, it does not become a heal 4. It becomes two separate heal 2s.

an important distinction if you are poisoned (heal 4 = removes poison, no HP recover; two Heal 2's = remove poison, recover 2 HP)
Or if you have something that modifies each heal.
