This is sort of a follow-up to yesterday’s post about salvage kits. You should have some Black Lion Salvage Kits. You get these as rewards from dailies, Black Lion Chests, and a few other things. They’re fairly rare, so use them sparingly. Very sparingly.
If you come across an exotic with a sweet rune or sigil in it (I hope you’re checking the trading post by now.), then by all means salvage that sucker. If it’s got a crappy rune or sigil in it, then it’s almost always best to sell it. Don’t waste your kits, don’t bother to salvage it, just sell it. Exotics usually sell for a nice amount, especially exotic weapons, because suckers – er, I mean speculators – dump them into the Mystic Forge hoping to get a precursor.
Save your Black Lion Salvage Kits and use them when you stand a good chance to make money from the rune or sigil you salvage.
