— In-game description

The Copper-Fed Salvage-o-Matic is an infinite use Basic Salvage Kit purchased from the Gem Store. Instead of having a set amount of charges when purchased, it has infinite charges, but requires Copper coin per use. For comparison, a normal Basic Salvage Kit costs 88 Copper coin and comes with 25 uses, equating to 3.52 Copper coin per use. The first time it is used to salvage something, and every few times thereafter, it will talk in a golem-like voice.

  • Given the gold-gem exchange rate is 33 Silver coin 67 Copper coin per gem and each salvage saves 0.52 Copper coin, you would have to salvage approximately 5,180,000 items before it becomes cheaper than using Basic Salvage Kits.
    • This means that you have to complete the Agent of Entropy achievement 25,900 times. You only need to complete it for 125 times to get all the achievement points.
    • Given the long time for this item to pay for itself, the value proposition is in convenience rather than economics: Its infinite nature doesn't require visiting a vendor to restock, and unlike salvage kits it never takes up more than a single inventory slot.
  • Originally the item was of Basic rarity and functioned exactly like a Basic Salvage Kit, however after the November 26, 2013 game update, the rarity was changed to Rare. Some users reported that they were getting more rare materials, even though the description remained unchanged.[1] The item's rarity was changed back to basic in a later update and there have been no further reports of anomalies.
  • The inventory icon for this item bears a strong resemblance to a slot machine.
