Glob of Ectoplasm, abbreviated ecto, is an exotic crafting material used in all high-level crafting excluding cooking. It is also a token used for purchasing ascended accessories from a laurel merchant. They are acquired from salvaging rare or better equipment that is level 68 or above. Unlike most crafting materials, they cannot be farmed or purchased directly. This makes the Glob of Ectoplasm one of the most heavily traded items on the Trading Post.

Acquisition[edit]

Salvaging[edit]

Generally, salvaging rare or exotic equipment (armor, trinkets, and weapons) with a required level of 68 or higher yields between 0 and 3 Globs of Ectoplasm. While there have been reports of a Glob of Ectoplasm being produced from items with a level below 68 or a lesser quality than rare, these exceptions are few and far between. See the talk page for further discussion.

Extensive testing suggests that the drop rate is affected by three factors:

  • Level requirement: equipment rated at level 68 or higher have much higher yields than lower-level items.
  • Item rarity: rare and exotic items are much more likely to produce ecto than items of lower quality.
  • Kit quality: higher quality kits produce ecto at a higher rate. Controlled tests[1] estimate that Master's and Mystic Salvage Kits yield 0.875 ecto/rare and Black Lion Salvage Kits about 1.25 ecto/rare:
