|This article is about a type of item called "Salvage item". For the process of extracting materials and upgrades from items, see Salvage.|
All salvage items:
- Are labeled as "Salvage item" in the item's in-game description.
- Can be salvaged into crafting materials.
- Have a non-zero merchant value.
Salvage items can be further divided into two unofficial types: salvage armor and salvage remains. Armors have an armor rating in their description, no set price, and (once identified) allows for the extraction of runes or insignias. Remains have a fixed value and are stackable. The following table summarizes the differences between the two:
|Property||Salvage armor||Salvage remains|
|Fixed merchant value|
|Can contain runes/insignias|
- Check prices at the Rune Trader in order to get the most money for any salvage armors that contain runes or insignia. If the trader's price for a given upgrade is at least twice the merchant value of the salvage armor, you should salvage the upgrade out of the armor and sell it to the trader. Even if the armor is destroyed by the salvage, you'll come out ahead.
