Do temporary weapon enchantments still exist?

A long time ago (back in Cataclysm), I wrote a DataBroker plugin that tracked Rogue poisons and Shaman weapon imbues using GetWeaponEnchantInfo.

In the process of updating it for 6.0, I've struggled to find a temporary weapon enchantment that still exists. Shaman imbues have been removed and Rogue poisons have been converted to regular self-buffs.

Does anyone know of a temporary weapon enchant that's still around or is my AddOn completely useless now?

Officially they still exist, like old sharpening stones, but i doubt they'll ever become relevant again

I suspected that might be the case. Thanks.

I consider this a positive change. It wasn't like you actually changed which enchants you used based on the situation (other than Frostbrand, which is still available in some other form I think) so it was just yet another thing you needed to keep track of and reapply every X minutes or after every wipe. Not interesting or meaningful, just tedious.

I was really just remembering how much time I spent figuring out how to get temp. enchants working again in DUF. The vagaries of the crazed mind . My poor old Shaman is sorely neglected these days.

Fishing rods and their lures. They return enchant data.
