Artificer salvaging has indeed been borked for a while now, and please accept my heartfelt apologies for not having fixed this sooner. The GM quoted in the other thread didn’t have all the details because I hadn’t looked into the situation yet.
As of 2.2 -
- Low-level jewelry will once again yield gem components when salvaged by an artificer. Depending on a ring or necklace’s level, it will provide Gemstone Fragments, Iridescent Powder, or Clear Crystal.
- Artificers will be able to salvage totems that weren’t salvaging correctly.
- Artificers, not weaponsmiths, will be able to salvage staves.
