I do not think that any of the current (rotating) level 95 Hot Zones have augments. I've been in the active 95 Hot Zone for many hours in the last few months and no drops. I'd love to be proven wrong... ;p

Fortress Mechanotus Drop

Dark Black Gem dropped yesterday in Fortress Mechanotus off of a mechanic. Seems like in at least this instance, they are reusing hotzone augments from other zones. Just as a note, the character in question has never been to Hills of Shade, so definitely did not get it there.

I hunted a lot in Direwind Cliffs 6 months ago and got Carrion Offering many times, doesn't look like hotzone Augment to me. New to me in this zone was today Oceangreen Clover.
Interesting change...

Well, it looks like the hot zones can change DAILY. When I took the level 95 task today the zone changed from Sarith to Pillars of Alra. The level 90 changed from Fear Itself to Arthicrex. SAME GOES FOR ALL THE LOWER LEVEL ZONES! This is rather intriguing and a GREAT way to get players to explore a variety of zones. I like it! Also makes it pointless to bind in a hotzone expecting to go back every day...

I do wonder if there is a fixed set of zones and if they cycle back thru the same sets periodically...

Looks like they added a level 95 hot zone but eliminated the "alternate" zone for level 90.

For Skal Nethus' Hot Zone quest "Skal's Waking Nightmare"

Fighting an enemy in ANY new hot zone can spawn a white con "Skal's Waking Nightmare". Nothing online about it, seems to be a white con no matter what zone you are in. As an 82 Rogue, it spawns an extremely hard white con "Skal's Waking Nightmare" on death of a HZ enemy. Mine, whether it be in Vergalid, Feerrott, or Ashengate, would quad for up to 4700 and attacks rapidly. Tier 5 Healer Merc on Reactive cannot keep up.

Killing one will complete a check on the quest "Skal's Waking Nightmare", which requires you to kill one spawn from each hot zone. At the end, the reward is

"The Sum of Skal's Nightmares
Magic, Lore, No Trade, Augmentation
Class: ALL
Race: ALL
Size: Tiny
Req. Level: 85

HP: 150
Mana: 100
End: 100

Stamina: 0 (+3)
Agility: 0 (+3)

SV Fire: 12
SV Cold: 12"

May not be much to go on but it's what I can find.
