Salvaging Jewelry

Salvaging for Jewelry is a bit different than other items. You have a small chance of getting the same-tier gem back and a high chance of getting a lower-tier gem back. It is only 1 tier lower than before if it is not the same tier salvaged. For example, salvaging an item that used a Tier 5 gem you will likely get the Tier 4 version of that gem back. 

Using Scraps to Level

You can utilize scraps from a perfect salvage to quickly level any applicable trade skill. This is a great way to obtain a boost to your trade skill experience. To learn all about perfect salvages and how to use scraps you can check out our Perfect Salvage Guide.

The below table lists the items you will want to craft in level increments. Sometimes there are various options within each level range. You can utilize these variations if you have the materials on hand, or stick to one of the options within that range. The estimated amount of items listed is assumes you are only crafting that particular item to hit the next level threshold. However, if you’re utilizing the first craft bonus or crafting other items within that range then the quantity needed would reduce.
