Salvage items are items that can be salvaged, but cannot be used; they can be sold to merchants. These items are usually represented as broken pieces of armor, torn bits of clothing, or remnants of defeated foes. There are two subtypes: armor and stackable salvage items.

Armor salvage items[edit]

Salvage item
Armor: <number>
Use Salvage Kits, to produce crafting materials and upgrade components.

— In-game description

Armor salvage items can be identified and salvaged for runes, insignias, common and rare crafting material. They are not stackable in the inventory and have a sale value that varies depending on rarity. White/common rarity armor salvage items can only be salvaged for crafting materials. Blue, purple, and gold rarity armor salvage items may contain one rune and/or one insignia. When salvaging for a rune or insignia, there is a chance that the salvage item may not be destroyed, depending upon salvage kit used. If the salvage item does not get destroyed, then it can be salvaged again. Salvage armor has an armor rating of up to 40, which is related to its salvage yield and vendor value. Higher level monsters tend to drop salvage armor with higher armor ratings.

Stackable salvage items[edit]

— In-game description

Stackable salvage items are stackable in the inventory, cannot be identified, and can only be salvaged for crafting materials. They have white rarity, fixed sale value, and no armor rating.

Notes[edit]

  • Charr Hide is the only salvage item that can be traded to a collector, Calissa Sedgwick.
  • Unlike other items, the runes and insignias on salvage armor do not necessarily match that of the foe dropping the item, e.g. Warriors can drop Ranger-specific insignia.
Bug Bug.There is an extremely low chance that purple salvage armor items will contain neither a rune nor an insignia.
