The Salvage List (and Helpful Hints)

Invention salvage is everywhere in City of Heroes--it apparently falls out of the pockets of bad guys when you, um, "defeat" them. While battling is a pretty good way to pick up random pieces of salvage, sometimes you need certain pieces of salvage to craft Enhancements for your character's different powers. The following list will help you determine what level range your desired salvage is in, and whether it's common, uncommon, or rare, which will help you figure out how best to get it without completely bankrupting yourself. For more information about the AE Building's Ticket Counter, which is referenced several times in this article, please see the Paragon Wiki article about the Ticket Vendor.


Common salvage cannot be bought by the piece at AE buildings--for 8 tickets each, you have a chance at getting the common salvage you want at the Ticket Counter. You can buy single common salvage items at Wentworth's, but be prepared to pay quite a bit for some of the more in-demand items. Common Arcane salvage in general is more expensive than Common Tech. All of the Common Arcane salvage can soar up into the 100,000 to 900,000 influence range easily. If you sell Common salvage to a Vendor, you could get anywhere from 100 to 500 influence, so keep that in mind when you're trying to sell Common salvage at Wentworth's.

You can buy Uncommon salvage for 80 tickets each at the AE building's Ticket Counter. Just make sure you know what you're buying--some Uncommon salvage sells for a good profit over at Wentworth's, while other Uncommon salvage barely sells for anything. If you sell Uncommon salvage to a Vendor, you will always get 1,000 influence, so keep that in mind when trying to sell it at Wentworth's.

Rare salvage can be bought by the piece at the AE Ticket Counter for 500 tickets each. Depending on the item, Rare salvage can be worth next to nothing or could be worth tons of influence--check prices and know what you're buying beforehand if you're trying to turn a profit. If you sell Rare salvage to a Vendor, you will always get 5,000 influence for it, so keep that in mind when you're trying to sell Rare salvage at Wentworth's.
