Might as well start a list here for items that I can now salvage for rares that probably were overlooked...

Quest item for quest "Tangled Roots of Growth" is a Blighted Scimitar of Emerald Dawn, a fabled quest item... I could theoretically get this quest over and over again and end up with a billion rares at no cost.

I can salvage my entire Hardened Ice armor set, which I got from Frostfell for tokens I believe? Cannot transmute them, but I can salvage them as legendary items.

Also Legendary Journeyman Boots, which I believe (can't do on test) that I can buy them right back after salvaging them from the merchant on Nek docks, the shady guy who gives you important items back.

Oh goodness yeah just went to the Shady Swashbuckler on Nek Docks....

I can buy almost any item he sells for a low price, Salvage the item to get 1-2 rares, then buy it back again for a low price. This needs to be fixed. Lodizal Shell Shield, for example, gives me 2 tungsten ores for the low price of 2 plat to buy the item back.

Sundered Fronteir...

Token merchant Falakhar has items for sale for Marks of Manaar. Some people have thousands of old Marks laying around from a few expansions back.

I can buy some appearance items for 1 Mark each, and even though they are listed as "level 1" when I salvage them, I get either 20 nonrares or 1-2 tungsten ore rares which are the level 90-99 harvestables. Probably all of the are bugged this way, but I tested specifically "Runeplate Breastplate" and "Runeplate Full Helm". The ones that are not appearnce armors but in fact are level 85 items given the level 80-89 harvestables/rares, but these are all NOT transmutable so probaably not meant to be salvaged into rares either. Same holds for both other Mark of Manaar merchants next to this one.

On to the next merchant in this zone, Sehesh. This one will let you buy fabled level 90 gear for variousl prices with the Seals of Arad, thus converting all your old currency into level 90-99 rares.

One more merchant in Sundered Fronteir to go...

Al'Diun Stirhinis who is the Paineel merchant, sells various gear items which are salvageable. Interesting again, some of the level 84 items he sells will salvage into the level 90-99 rares. This is double buggy... Buying cheap items to salvage, and also appears to be converting to the wrong tier rare. The items he sells that cost 37 gold each convert into level 80-89 rares, and the more expensive 55-60 gold items into the 90-99 rares.

Might have to run around and check all the merchants in the world for buyable salvage items which will overrun the marketplace with rares for cheap.

Good catch.Although, normal "mark" gear should be salvagable (at the correct level of course).  Those actually cost a fair amount of marks, the appearance gear, and quest items/swashbuckler items, definitely should not be.

Thanks for the tip!  We found some global issues with Salvaging code that are being shored up.  The salvaging rules should be very similar to transmuting rules soon.

Thanks for the update Omougi. I'll keep a look out for that bug fix, and then start looking again. I will also need to recheck the level 84 items giving level 90 rares after this bug fix?

Keep up the hard work Devs SMILEY

Lighten up. The transmuting rules are already too strict. If you buy something it should be salvagable even if you use tokens for the ice armor - you have worked for them -- you should be table to both transmute and salvage them.
