Hi Folks. It might be worthwhile starting a thread on which missions are worth salvaging since some of them will drop hundreds of wrecks which will always yield no salvage.

Edit: The list so far from contributions, so far it looks like any of the 'Vengeance' missions are the jackpot:

1. Zazzmattaz lvl 4 - no salvage
2. Mordus Headhunters lvl 4 - no salvage
3. Duo of death (guristas) - some salvage
4. Militairy Presence (Bloodraiders) - some salvage
5. Guristas Extravaganza lvl 3 - some salvage
6. Stop the Thief lvl 4 - no salvage
7. Pirate Invasion (Angels) - decent amount of salvage
8. Duo of Death (Angels) - Salvage from the battleships
9. The Assault - some salvage
10.The Blockade lvl 3 - 20-25 parts
11.The Score lvl 4 - around 40 parts
12.Massive Attack lvl 3 - 16 parts
13.War Situation lvl 4 - no salvage
14.The Spy Stash lvl 4 - 18 parts
15.Intercept Pirate Smuggler lvl 3 - no salvage
16.Storyline AngelStrike 1/10 lvl 3 - no salvage
17.Worlds Collide (Guristas/Serpentis) - some salvage
18.Vengeance (Guristas)(Sansha)(Serpentis) - some salvage
19.Unauthorised Military Presence lvl4 - 22 parts
20.Storyline Shipyard Theft - decent amount of salvage
21.Missing Reporters lvl 3 - no salvage
22.Retribution (Serpentis) lvl 3 - fair salvage
23.Angel Extravaganza lvl 3 - 15-20 parts
24.Rogue Drone Harassment lvl 3/4 - no salvage
25.Silence the informant lvl 4 - no salvage
26.Midst of Deadpace - no salvage

Guristas Extra (L3) has some salvage, but lots of "nothing to salvage" messages - gave it up as too time consuming and just looted the bc wrecks and storage silo.

Salvaging = what a waste of time

Hehe, don't give up please, we want the rigs Smile
Come to irjunen, many high-end lvl 4 missionrunners here, that don't loot their missions. So if you can find wrecks with probes you have endless bs-wreck to salvage and don't have to kill anything yourself. If you cant find wrecks with scanner, ask some missionrunners to give you bookmarks of their missions, for a little fee they will, as they don't need it anyways. Doing missions and salvaging is maybe not so profitable, but if you specialize on salvaging so that you salvage bs all the time im sure you can make a lot of isk, expecially now, as everyone wants the rigs and noone sells Very Happy

lvl 4 Stop the Thief -- No Salvage

What made it even worse was that it took several tries on almost all the wrecks to be told there was nothing to salvage.. This is with 1 salvager and lvl 3 salvaging skill.
This was very disappointing after I had about 80% salvage rate on the little frigs in a roid belt.

Has anyone managed to recover ANY salvage from ANY level 4 mission? I really don't want to waste any more time on these things... most frustrating.

  1. Stop the Thied: Yeilded no salavagable items

  2. The Assult: Yeilded some salvageable items but not as many as belt rates

  3. Silence the InformationL: all 3 stages of the lvl 4 nothing.

  4. Duo of Death (Angels) - Salvage from the battleships. No Loot however.

  5. Infertrated outpost- Nothing

  6. when worlds Collide Angles/Sasha- droped some.



As I do missions I will edit posts with my results


Also would be nice if a Dev or someone would replay to this post on if this is how they want salvaring to be, ie crap from mission runners and ok for belt hunters. In other words rigs will be very expensive and relativly rare at this rate because salvaging sucks.

What I found out so far:

By flying Missions in Minmatar Space, I could only Salvage from Wrecks that
where either from enemys flying minmatar (Gist/Angel) or gallente (serp)
Ships. From 4 Missions with Caldary Ships (Mercs/Mordus) I didn't get
a single Piece from Salvaging....
If it is what it looks like.., no chance to build amarr/ calda rigs here anytime
cause the salvaged parts are also racial specific.

Thank you CCP for that Crap, cause the Loot also totaly sucks when 80% of
all Wrecks don't even have "regular" Loot anymore.

ah, and btw: Wrecks from Drones and Buildings (Sentrys f.e.) do also
not contain salvageable Stuff.

hey hey

got 3 ! items in about 4 L3 missions so far.

Belt rats have dropped more and are dropping 1 item per wreck

sucess of wreck is 50/50 pretty much on the dot.

This is incorrect. I completed Mordus Headhunters and looted every single wreck. Every wreck had loot. I collected 2800m3 of loot.

Has anyone tried to use the Salvage Tacks to see if they can draw salvage from wrecks that may otherwise not yield anything?

Well, here is what I have found so far. Merc have great loot but nothing to salvage. I have gotten salvage out of mission NPCs but those missions there were many wrecks with no loot or salvage but a few had salvage.

I think salvage is broken. Player ships will drop scrap metal even nothing else is salvagable, NPC ships should do the same.

I salvaged so far around 20-25 parts out of a "The blockade" mission (Lv 3) and around 40 from "The Score" (Level 4). All in Minmatar space.

Ah, and Massive Attack (Level 3) yields too... *is salvaging this atm*

Ok, new numbers: Stage 1: 15 Parts, Stage 2: 1

I'm wondering if NPC's you can find at belts drop salvageble itmes and the NPC's you only find in Missions do not drop anything.

So I ask this people when salvaging have you received anything from say Merc's, any of the faction ie Ammar, Gal, Cal, Minmatar.

OR are you only getting salvageble items from an NPC that you might be able to find in a belt in some region?

basically this can be summarized as -
"open space mission" - belt npcs which only appear in belts and in missions near gate or station (and in certain missions that were removed anyway) - lots of salvage
deadspace missions - crappy rats with reduced bounty and loot made specially for mission runners coz they face no risk - low chance of salvage from BS, basically next to no salvage.

although as now any folk with lvl3 in certain skill can warp to any mission runner, I don't see why not add salvage to all low sec mission npcs...

Worlds Collide (Guristas/Serpentis) and Vengeance (Guristas) both gave salvaged items. I'm going to start a thread with what I've picked up so far so people can see the relative rarity of items in an attempt to set pricing for them.

Of course I'd assum that salvaging BS wrecks be harder than frigates...anyone who's done any hacking/archaeology work will be well used to how the system works.

Doesn't this depend very much on the salvaging skills of those who tried? A list without the skills used doesn't look very useful then.

I beleive that skills affect how often you get the "You suck too much to salvage this time. Please try again." message, not whether there actually is or isn't salvage in the wreck.

Would perhaps be more interesting if every wreck had "X" number of salvage points, and if you could successfully salvage under that time, would get salvage, otherwise wouldn't. I don't believe it works this way right now, however.

Silence the informant lvl 4
Using salvage skill at 2.

stage 1 rogue drones produce no salvage components.
stage 2 Mercs produce no salvage components.

Wondering what the damn point of having wrecks for rats that don't drop any salvage parts is.

LOL. You didn't figure that part out yet? It's because pirates whined that it was too quick and easy too make money whoring level 4's. Apparently we can make 21 billion in three months (that's NOT an exaggeration, some guy ACTUALLY posted that as the figure)

I still think it depends on the Region / Fraction thingy

In Minma Space I still couldnt get any Salvage
from any Caldary / Amarr Ship (NPC)
but from those mixture Ships like Sansha's

and to the Question of the Dread Gurista Spawn:
since u need Salvaging LvL 3 to salvage
from a Tech II Ship (Wreck), I think it will be same with
those "higher ranking" NPC's
U might also have noticed that it takes longer to salvage from
a "named" mission NPC or in Belt from the arch angels f.e.
