If you haven't
done salvaging before hereís how it works. Your ability to salvage an
item has nothing to do with your declared trade skill or your skill in
any of the related crafts. Itís completely based on secondary skills. So
for example, The test subject can have Weapon crafting at a skill of one yet be able to
salvage arcanite (tier 10) weapons if The test subject have 900 in metalworking. The
catch is, your secondary can never be higher than your main trade
skill. So your actual trade skill doesn't matter, but you have to have
it high enough to get your secondary to the level you want. All mundane
crafters (not Alchemists and Spell crafters unfortunately) have the
ability to salvage and trinket all materials by raising their secondary
Levelling secondary can be done through Trinketing but itís boring and
slow. The best way to level secondary is to take advantage of the other
trade skills at their low levels. The most important thing is to plan
ahead before you start your crafter. For example, you can fletch arrows
to get a cheap and quick 400 levels in metalworking and 500 levels in
woodworking. But if you do that at the start youíll run out of cheap,
low-level trade skills as you get close to capping your crafter and
youíll be stuck with the slow and more costly task or Trinketing tier
7-10 materials to cap some secondary.
What is Trinketing you ask? It's a mechanism Mythic put into the game
that accomplishes two things, first you can use it to raise secondary
skills independently from the main trade skill. Second, Trinketing can
be used to turn raw materials into a product you can sell back to the
merchants at about 98% of the purchase price instead of the 50% you get
from selling back the raw materials. There are trinkets for each of the
secondary skills like Hinges and Brackets for Metalworking; Dolls and
Puppets for Cloth working, etc. So salvaging is only half the picture.
First you salvage an item into its material components, then you trinket
the item into a product to sell back to the merchant at a much higher
value than the raw materials alone would sell for.
