Kingdoms of Amalur Salvaging

Every item is salvageable as it can be salvaged into four estimated components that rely on the item. Most of the time these salvaged components are different as compared to the Components used for crafting the item.

Out of these four items, one is uncommon and the remaining three are common. There’s a drop of 50% in the common item whereas only a 10% drop is found in uncommon items.

Inspect Item’s Worth
You can inspect your items, for example: weapons have a basic damage rating; some have bonuses (piercing hit, etc.) The items which have the bonuses will have extra slots and abilities attached to them.

Gem Sockets
The gem sockets are NOT considered as “special bonuses” when you’re crafting as you can already use a gem for the crafting.

Salvaging Results In Lesser Items
The number of salvaged items is always less than what you used to make them; you can use a maximum of five items.

Salvaging Gems, Destroys Them
When you use a gem in the process, it’s considered to be destroyed and will not return to you.

Save & Load
This is the most important part. Many of you may already use this trick, but many would not. Save your game before you’re going to salvage your items (manually). This way, you can always load the game with your items and try again. Ifit’s fruitful, SAVE!
