“New Appearance Damage Bonus Bits and Elemental Damage Bonus Bits will now drop from heroics, world bosses, and Bounty Hunter missions. All non-heroic 2% weapons will have an optional slot for a new appearance bonus bit that will increase the appearance damage bonus up to 2% (depending on experimented quality during crafting). […] This change is NOT RETROACTIVE. Appearance damage and range bonuses will not apply to weapons already crafted. Only weapons crafted following the release of this update will have these additions. A new Weapon Elemental Kit Schematic has been added to the Weaponsmith’s Profession Wheel. This kit will grant +1 elemental damage bonus for a weapon that does not have an elemental bonus yet. This may be applied to existing weapons.”
