[ECONOMY] Salvaging

Recommended Posts

Why is that when you salvage one of these weapons you get ALOT less then when you create\manufactor  a weapon as you have to have alot more components  ( specifically Alien Crystals)

 

I can understand getting somewhat less... but there is a VAST difference .

Salvaged a whole lot of kits and duplicates of higher tier ones.

 

CC = Computing Chip, Si = Silicon, MB = Metal Blank, Os = Osmium

 

T1 and T2 purple kits give 2x [MB or Si] and 1x [MB or Si].  (With petty artifacts)

T1 and T2 green kits give 1 or 2 of MB or Si.

 

T3 green kits 2 of MB or Si.

 

T3 purple kits: (with minor artifacts 11, 15, 22)

 

Nano Cloud:       CC[3] + Si[4]

IR Pulsar:           CC[3] + Si[4]

EM Ins Hull:       CC[3] + Si[4]

Vernier Engines:CC[3] + Si[4]

 

T4 Purple Kits: (Receive 15 or 21 or 30 artifacts depending on Passive Mod, Active Mod or Weapon)

 

RF Blaster                                  CC[5] + Si[6]

Nanodrone CLoud                     Processing Block [3]

Missile Shield                            Processing Block [3]

Repair Kit M                              Screened Battery [2] 

Coating Polariser                      Processing Block [3]

Auto Charging Station              MB [6] + Os [5]

Emergency Shield Boost          CC[5] + Si[6]

Liquid Metal                              MB [6] + Os [5]

Aiming Overcharge                   CC[5] + Si[6]

Engine Overcharge                   MB [6] + Os [5]

Tachyon Charge                       MB [6] + Os [5]

Vernier Engines                        MB [6] + Os [5]

Asynchronous SHield               Screened Battery [2] 

Lightweight Hull                        Screened Battery [2] 

Target Tracking Coprocessor   CC[5] + Si[6]

Armour Plated Hull                   CC[5] + Si[6]

 

T5 purple Kits: (With 18, 27 or 36 artifacts)

 

Submatter shield                       Screened Battery [3] + Os [6]

 

If I knew about the kits and salvaged them before I could have saved a few (lots) on the self destruct modules but oh well :) Now I need osmium and graphite and the monocrystals.

T5 Mk2 Passive Armour is now giving  x5 Computing Chip, x5 Metal Blank

 

I'm wondering what else has changed now in the last patch, and I need to find myself a new cheap source of Graphite Plates. Any ideas what is the cheapest after this change? Cos it's gonna start getting expensive paying 1 million credits for two Plates...

A lot of stuff has changed, my list is pretty much ruined. I don't know why they did this.

Self destruct T5 Mk2  now gives 3 pure silicon and 2 graphite lates.

Not so bad...

Awesome thanks! So it seems they just switched the loot dropped by Self Destruct and Passive Armour or something

Just added those 2 kits to the google doc list

 

IV mk4 Kit for Plasma Gun, 30 artifacts, 5 Computing chips, 6 Pure silicon

V mk4 Kit for Heavy Blaster, 36 artifacts, 3 Screened battery, 6 Osmium crystals

 

 

Edit: I added 3 columns to the google doc list, the MkI price, the MkII upgrade price and the Total price. Might be useful to find the cheapest options... ;P

We need prices on these. I'm looking for the cheapest graphite plate salvage.

*and computing chips

I just tried self destruct and it gives 5 Comp Chips and 5 Metal Blanks like before...

EM insulation (hull) is still ok...

 

EDiT: Inertial Stabiliser gives 2 Graphite, 3 Metal Blanks and it is the same price and the Enhanced Scanner. Only difference is metal blanks instead of silicon, but I have loads of silicon :)

So basically, none of the information in the original post is correct anymore?

 

I don't think so because it has been changing a couple of times since I decided to make the thread.

Well, I just confirmed for myself that for all Tier 1-3 items, you get only 2 resources of the same type. So basically you'd be better off building and salvaging Tier 1 items than Tier 3. Osmium crystals are rare. Metal Blanks and Pure Silicon are from pretty much everything. No Graphite Plates, whatsoever.

 

It's only in T4 that you can start salvaging Graphite. And it's only in Tier 4 that they start giving you 2 resource types.

 

Furthermore, I just built and salvaged a T5 Passive Armor. I got 2 Graphite and 3 Pure Silicons. Not Metal Blanks.

 

 

So they've pretty much nerfed this system into the ground, and Graphite Plates and Osmium Crystals are being used as the choke point.

The things given by salvaging also tend to change wildly, apparently, so it's no consistent way of getting resources.

The same module will always give you the same amount of resources.

 

Best bang for buck are green selfdestruct module in T5 for plates and chips, and spy drones in T5 for graphite and osmium.

Now selfdesctruct V gives 5 computing chips and 5 metal blanks, and spy drones V 3 metal blanks and 2 graphite plates.

 

Not wildly different, but still.

For anyone who wants evidence for this whole salvaging thing being inconsistent:

Just thought i'd double check that and salvaged SD V mk 2 - 2x plates/3x silicon - total cost 302.4k for the resources...... guess i'll be using pvp to fund :)

13 days apart. Completely different rewards.

the reward of salvaging rotates on a frequent base

 

Oh is there a reason why ?  As it is a PAIN in the rear too deal with.
