Garrison: Salvage Yard Guide (WoD 6.2)

Last updated on Feb 24, 2015 at 10:19 by Damien 1 comment

Table of Contents

The Salvage Yard is a Small Garrison building that allows you to get additional items from your missions, in the form of Crate of Salvage Icon Crates of Salvage, at Level 1 and 2, and Big Crate of Salvage Icon Big Crates of Salvage, at Level 3. This building is particularly useful if you want to increase the item level of your followers faster, in order to unlock higher item level missions. Do not expect to get epic item level 680 gear from the Big Crates of Salvage, though. All we ever got was low item level BoE items.

Garrison Blueprint: Salvage Yard, Level 3 Icon Garrison Blueprint: Salvage Yard, Level 3 is a reward from completing the Salvaging Pays Off Icon Salvaging Pays Off achievement, which requires you to open 100 pieces of Salvage from missions. This achievement is account-wide.

This quest rewards you with 3x Bag of Salvaged Goods Icon Bags of Salvaged Goods, which you can only open at the Salvage Yard (like the Salvage Crates).

Bags of Salvaged Goods contain mostly trash items that you can sell to vendors, although they sometimes contain profession reagents (such as Sumptuous Fur Icon Sumptuous Fur).
