Salvaging refine harvestables into pure harvestables, which will add attributes to items made with them.. It works like Transmuting.
Player Beta testing gave these results:
It only works on harvestables, and not Transmution results, harvested quest items, or purchased items. When we tested it on Beta it did not work on harvested fish, meat or foodstuffs. You can only refine one item at a time, regardless of how many are in the stack.
You can use purified rares when crafting gear like weapons, armor, and jewelry. If you do so the result will have a 10% boost to primary stats and many blue stats. There are some blue stats that cannot be boosted (such as block chance), and a couple of blue stats that will only give a 5% boost. The item also gets a "Refined" tag to differentiate from regular Mastercrafted gear.
With GU66 refined bonus is now preserved when imbuing.
The broker does not currently support the Refined tag, so you cannot search the broker for Refined items.
