Salvage and Loot[edit]

Salvageable items are mostly obtained by killing mobs and opening chests, making Salvage and Loot somewhat interchangeable terms. Crafting materials are most commonly salvaged from weapons, salvage items, and trophies; other sources include rare crafting materials and player armor. Many common crafting materials also drop frequently from certain types of monsters (e.g. Chitin Fragments from devourers); see a particular material's article for details. Some rare crafting materials drop as well, although fewer creatures drop rare materials in Tyria than in Cantha or Elona. Most rare crafting materials can also be obtained from Hidden Treasures.

Material traders and rare material traders[edit]

These NPCs sell crafting materials.


These NPCs can convert common crafting materials and gold into certain rare crafting materials.
