    * Salvage materials no longer need to be combined into Salvaged, Reclaimed, Processed, or Refined materials.
    - All recipes that require Salvaged Materials now use the base material.
    - If you have combined Salvage items in your bank or bags, you will be able to convert these back to their component parts.

    - They are now flagged as Trash items.
    - Normal Bone type crafting material can still be salvaged from items that awarded them previously.
    * Uncommon and Rare items will salvage into normal Salvaged Materials.
    * Epic items will salvage into Epic Salvaged Materials.
    - Epic Salvaged Materials are required for all Epic Augment recipes.
    - Epic Salvaged Materials also have a very low chance of being rewarded through the skill 300 Crafting Daily reward bags.


    AUGMENTS
    * All Augment recipes now require Salvaged Materials.
    * Several Augments will no longer drop in the world and cannot be crafted or acquired by any means. They will not be removed from players who currently have them. If you still have one hiding in your bank, you will be able to use it.
    - Scorpid Stinger
    - Centair Tail
    - Faerie Wing
    - Phylactery
    - Mistwalker Essence
    - Gravemaker Hide
    - Harpy Feather
    - Werewolf Blood
    - Dragon Turtle Shell
    - Treant Bark
    - Basilisk Tail

    * All other existing Augments have been renamed to better communicate the bonuses they will apply.
    - Below is a list of the existing Augment and its new name (they are named for the bonus it applies, plus a prefix to indicate tier/relative power, ex: Lesser Dexterity). The format is Old Name: New Name without tier indicator.
    - Vespid Stinger: Attack Power
    - Hellhound Heart: Endurance and Parry
    - Wight Essence: Strength and Attack Power
    - Thick Troll Hide: Strength and Melee Crit
    - Adrenalite: Strength
    - Etherialite: Intelligence
    - Saintstone: Wisdom
    - Thiefstone: Dexterity
    - Vitalium: Endurance

    - Whelp Scale: Wisdom and Spell Power
    - Griffon Hide: Wisdom and Spell Crit
    - Golem Core: Spell Power
    - Satyr Horn: Endurance and Dodge
    - Naga Scale: Intelligence and Spell Power
    - Gnar Pincer: Intelligence and Spell Crit
    - Dragonian Scale: Melee Crit
    - Barghest Fang: Parry

    * Several new Augments have been added to fill the gaps in the Augment system.
    - Block
    - Deflect
    - Crit Power
    - Strength and Crit Power
    - Wisdom and Crit Power
    - Intelligence and Crit Power
    - Dexterity and Crit Power
    - Endurance and Deflect

    * Augments will no longer drop in the world. They can now only be acquired through crafting and the crafting daily quest reward bag.
    - All Augments can now be crafted by each profession except Runecrafter.
    - New recipes for all of the below Augments can be found on your profession trainer and at your profession’s Artisan Store merchant.
    - Uncommon Augments can be trained at your crafting profession trainer at skill levels 50, 150, and 225.
    - Rare and Epic Augments can be purchased at your crafting profession Artisan Store for Artisan’s Marks and Master Craftsman’s Marks.
    - Because of the changes and reductions to the material costs of the recipes, all Augment recipes will now only make one Augment.
    - Existing Uncommon Augment recipes have been removed from the Artisan Store merchant. If you already purchased these recipes, but had not trained them yet, you will still be able to learn the recipe from the scroll.
    * The bonus stats applied by Augments have been normalized. In some cases, this mean dual-stat Augments will be slightly better than their single-stat counterparts. Because of this, dual-stat Augments are generally more expensive to craft.

    * The available Augments are broken down amongst the professions as follows:
    * Apothecary
    - Dexterity
    - Endurance
    - Intelligence
    - Wisdom
    - Strength
    - Crit Power (new Augment)

    - Attack Power
    - Block (new Augment)
    - Endurance and Parry
    - Strength and Attack Power
