Ridiculously low salvage yields?

  • Hi,

    Has anyone else noticed that you can sometimes get unexpectedly small amounts of salvaged materials from items?

    Example from a gold max shield recently (chat does not show item rarity in these cases):


    Or was I just ridiculously unobservant for the past thirteen years?



  • I've seen low amounts from items before but, it's rare. (At least I've only noticed it rarely.)

    As I recall, I've gotten at least 2 to 4 materials a very few times over the years.

    The only exception was way back before a patch was added to fix an issue; Ecto could be salvaged for a Pile of Dust. (There was a slight bit of lag while salvaging one dark day. Oh the horrible memories that have scarred me for life.)

  • irri, dia, amber aegis salv to 1-2 dust

    Certain grim cestas (one skin) and talon daggers are 1-3 bones

    there's certain items that just have crappy salvage yields

    Btw its https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Grim_Cesta_(claw) thats just a few bones, even with m4m.

    https://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Grim_Cesta_(gauntlet) = 1 metric arseload if u put m4m on it

  • This happens with all of the Gem possible salvage items. Diamond Aegis, Irri, Ruby daggers/maul, Amethyst aegis etc. It's annoying for sure. Either it's a gem or it's poopies.
