Notes[edit]

  • Salvage rate research can be found here.
  • If random chance is not on your side, a guaranteed way to obtain is to craft and salvage an ascended item - the most efficient is generally an offhand weapon or a helm, shoulder, or glove armor depending on current prices of ascended materials.
    • A caveat to this should be noted that some of the more recently added ascended items do not appear to have their salvage tables set up correctly, and do not salvage into Balls of Dark Energy. An example of this would be the Empowered Boneskinner's Totem.
  • While some precursor weapons are of Ascended rarity, salvaging them does not guarantee a Ball of Dark Energy.
