Super awesome -- I feel like I just regained a tab or two of stash space just by knowing that this post exists.

If I could make one recommendation, it would be to add the items used in the Followers' Guide to this list as well, because some items, such as the Justice Lantern, are highly recommended for followers (and thus should be of interest to anyone who ever plays solo) but are maybe used in maybe one class build, if that.

But knowing I only have to check two pages (this one and the Followers' Guide) instead of 10+ pages is an incredible improvement.

I would like confirmation this list is current to Patch 2.4

 

I see Band of Might on the list, and it's new in Patch 2.4.  Also, the list includes guides for the Legacy of Nightmares set which are new 2.4 guides.

I think this is during PTR though.. Hmm

 

The actual guides for the LoN builds did not go up until patch 2.4 hit the live servers.  I know, because I kept watching for them to go up sooner so I could try them out on the PTR. :D  Since the Salvage guide links to those guides, I know it was updated after they went up.  Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if the Salvage guide is dynamic, pulling its info straight from the build guides so it's always up to date.  But either way...

Would love to see in this same list named:

- Used in Kanai Cube for the listed build, Best in Slot or alternative item

- Properties wanted for that build specific build (like dexterity, crit chance, crit dmg, vitality % etc).

 

This would save me a lot of going back and forth and checking. As I keep currently multiple "sets" open for myself, and my memory isn't what it was (I'm a old guy, can't remember everything anymore, lol)

Yeah, I agree.  Especially the "Cube, Best in Slot, Alternative" information would be really helpful and hopefully not too hard to implement.  When I find really nice items, I check the salvage guide to see if I want to keep it.  But it doesn't matter if it's got nice stats if it's only for the cube, and I probably already have it cubed anyway.  Clicking through to the guide and scrolling to the bottom for each item is time consuming.

 

The other stats would be helpful too, but not as important, because I only need to check those on the relatively few items that I actually keep.

Any reason why suddenly the Unhallowed (Accursed Visage etc) items are removed from the salvage list? I checked the builds, but they still stand as "valid" on their pages.

There is a fault in the Salvage-Overwiev.

For example my Crudest Boots are needed my Inna-Monk.

In the Salvage-Overwiev they are only neede for other monks.

Maybe there are more faults like this.

Hope this helps you.

Thank you for updating the guide with BiS/Alt/Cube info! Some of the guides do need some updating in regards to current meta. Solo and group Wizard guides are outdated compared to what is commonly being used right now. Please keep up the great work!

How about adding the Legendary Gems?

I'm looking into which ones aren't used by various builds I collect, and as I by now have almost all of them upgraded to ~ level 50-55, I don't want to have to redo all of those that I will need at higher levels etc if on the spot. And as those will get used up with Caldesann's Despair recipe on the cube....

Also, if builds are no longer "valid" in the list, would be nice if it would be shown by color of the build name maybe? (red for invalid maybe?)

I ran into this today.  The Flying Dragon shows as BiS for the Dashing Strike Monk, but that build has the following note:

Quote

Following the nerfs to the 4-piece and 6-piece bonuses in Patch 2.4, this build is no longer competitive. We have removed it from the menus, but we decided to leave it on the website for documentation purposes.

I know there are several builds like this that were left on the site for documentation purposes, and I'm guessing they're all still showing up in the salvage guide.

Yeah, they all are, and this makes them find able, which is fine by me, but their naming in this list and on their pages differ and make me always confused which build is which. By color marking those that aren't valid anymore, It won't confuse anymore between them.

 

And btw, thnx for adding the Cube/BiS/Alt information, it greatly reduced my browsing back and forth between the list and the builds.

I want to +1 the request to have follower items showing up in the salvage guide. 

Awesome guide! Keep up the good work!

I've implemented changes that were submitted here. I added the follower items and a mention of builds that are outdated. I don't think I'll add legendary gems though :p

      With the Season of Nightmares in full swing, Blizzard posted a guide on Ancient and Primal items, where they highlight the difference between them and talk about the ongoing Seasonal bonus, which increases your damage dealt and reduces damage taken by a percentage for each Ancient you equip.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Ancient items truly shine in Season 17: so long as you have no Set bonuses equipped, each Ancient you equip will provide you with a massive 750% boost to damage dealt and 4% reduction in damage taken. For those of you who may have taken a break from gathering loot recently, we thought a quick refresher was in order to clear up any confusion about the differences between Legendary, Ancient, and Primal Ancient items.

      In general, Ancient and Primal Ancient items are more powerful versions of Legendary items. They are identical to Legendary items except that their base attributes (damage or armor) and all non-percentile affixes roll higher values for both minimum and maximum possible rolls.
      Ancient & Primal Ancient Items
      The stats on these items will (generally) be tailored to the character class you are playing when the item drops Set items are also able to roll as both Ancient and Primal Ancient You can’t equip more than one item with the same name, even if one is Ancient and the other isn’t Any percentage-based affix will not be boosted (such as Attack Speed, bonus % to skills or % Critical Hit Chance/Damage) Ancient Items
      Only drop for characters who have reached level 70, and only on Torment level difficulties When dropped, Ancient items share the same orange glow as regular Legendaries You must identify the item to see if it’s an Ancient Once identified, Ancient items have an orange border (or green for Set items) around the item tooltip and say "Ancient" in the item description. They drop from all sources including monsters, chests, Kadala, Horadric Caches, Kanai's Cube, and even crafting at the Blacksmith or Jeweler Primal Ancient Items
      When dropped, Primal Ancient items have a red beam and glow Drops from any source of Legendary item in the game, including Horadric Caches, Kadala, and Kanai's Cube, but only after having successfully completed at least a level 70 Greater Rift solo These items are much rarer than Ancient items and have perfect Ancient-level stats on all affixes, including the item’s Legendary Power Primal Ancients & Developer Philosophy
      Primal Ancients are for players who have largely completed gearing for their build or finished their Season Journey but want to continue playing. They’re also for non-Seasonal players who have great gear and spend most of their time gaining Paragon Levels and upgrading Legendary Gems. We wanted to extend the excitement of seeing gear drop or spending Blood Shards at Kadala beyond obtaining Ancients in every slot. Primals provide an avenue for dedicated players to complete a build, without feeling like required upgrades.
      We hope that answers any questions you may have about Ancients and Primal Ancients. Now go get ‘em!

      Players have been reporting their inability to trade with others in Diablo. Blizzard confirmed there were some issues with game licenses and manual purchase approvals which caused this problem to occur. A hotfix has been already deployed, which should prevent the bug from happening again.
      Blizzard (Source)
      I am unable to trade with players in my party/game session, they cant trade with me, sais the I am busy whilst I am not, also when they drop it I cant pick it up - appears faded - I do not have a fresh account been playing d3 since season 3 in seasonal, never had this problem before.
      Hey all,

      An investigation was launched on this immediately and there were some issues with game licenses and manual purchase approvals that caused this limitation to occur. We've deployed a hotfix already, which should prevent this situation from occurring again.

      If you are still experiencing this issue, please hang tight; it does require some manual review on our end to clear up and appropriately re-flag any remaining affected accounts. This process is already underway, so we ask for your patience as we complete this step.

      Thanks for your understanding and apologies for any confusion this may have caused.
