Salvage kit

Gwwlogo.png The Guild Wars Wiki has an article on Salvage Kit.

Salvage kits are items used to break down various items into crafting materials and occasionally upgrade components. The salvaging process always destroys the item and consumes one charge of the kit. The more expensive kits are better at recovering upgrade components and generate more of the higher-tier crafting materials than their cheaper counterparts.

Crude kits have 15 uses and are given as leveling rewards and sold by a variety of NPCs. Other standard kits come with 25 charges and can be acquired from most generalist merchants; some are also available from karma vendors. The Copper-Fed and Silver-Fed Salvage-o-Matic models are specialty kits available at the Gem Store; these kits have unlimited uses and deduct their per-use cost directly from your Wallet, at a slightly cheaper rate than the equivalent standard model. The gem store also sells the Black Lion Salvage Kit, the only one with a 100% chance of recovering sigils, runes, and other upgrade components. Finally, you can create the 250-use Mystic Salvage Kit in the Mystic Forge by combining the three most expensive standard kits with three Mystic Forge Stones.
