Salvaging is the process of obtaining crafting materials or upgrade components from other items through use of a variety of salvage kits.

[edit] Salvaging components

To salvage an item, double-click on a salvage kit, then click on the item to be salvaged. If the item stacks, such as salvage items, you can repeatedly salvage items from the stack. Higher quality kits have a greater chance to receive a rare crafting material instead of a common crafting material. Items can also be salvaged for their upgrade component. Higher quality kits also give a greater chance to recover the component while salvaging an item. Players will always receive a common or rare crafting material.

The level or tier of the crafting material received from salvaging depends on the level of the item. Salvage items will give crafting material appropriate for the level of the area from which they were obtained. Glob of Ectoplasms are special crafting material that have a chance to be obtained from salvaging rare and exotic items with a level requirement of 68 or higher in addition to normal crafting materials and upgrade components.
