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.

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?)

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....

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

      Blizzard today posted an update about their plans for Diablo at this year's BlizzCon. They are working on multiple different Diablo projects right now, but more details will be revealed when the time is right.
      It appears that BlizzCon will primarily focus on the Nintendo Switch version of the game and they are not ready to unveil Diablo 4 just yet.
      Blizzard (Source)
      BlizzCon 2018 is almost here and we’ve seen a lot of rumors flying around about our plans for Diablo at the show. These are very exciting times—we currently have multiple teams working on different Diablo projects and we can’t wait to tell you all about them . . . when the time is right.
      We know what many of you are hoping for and we can only say that “good things come to those who wait,” but evil things often take longer. We appreciate your patience as our teams work tirelessly to create nightmarish experiences worthy of the Lord of Terror.
      While we won’t be ready to announce all of our projects, we do intend to share some Diablo-related news with you at the show.
      November 2 will be an especially diabolical date—not only is it the first day of BlizzCon, it’s also when Diablo III arrives on the Nintendo Switch. If you’re planning to pick up the game (the digital download will be available starting at midnight on launch day) and are joining us in Anaheim, be sure to bring your console. We’d love to slay some demons with you on the show floor.
      Again, we want to thank you for your patience and support. We are eternally grateful to you and the millions of other Diablo fans around the world whose passion for this franchise inspires us and keeps our fires burning.
      We’ll see you in hell . . . and at BlizzCon!

      Update: As mentioned in the comments, the contest is only available to residents of the USA, Canada and Mexico (and not even all US states).
      The Switch release of Diablo 3 is bringing some new events to everyone, as we're getting an interesting scavenger hunt, both of the online and real world varieties! The rewards vary from Switch console and D3 bundles, to just the game, as well as real life Diablo themed weapon replicas. The Diablo twitter account will be posting hints for the scavenger hunts in the coming days, and you can read up on the detailed rules below:
      Legendary Hunt (source)
      Whether you’re a Diablo veteran or a complete newcomer, chances are you love treasure. To get you in shape for Diablo III Eternal Collection on the Nintendo Switch, we’re inviting you on a treasure hunt. Get ready to stretch those loot-chasing muscles and get your hands on some sweet (and very real) rewards! We’ve hidden items across the internet (as well as in a few real-world locations), and it’s up to you to find them. Don’t worry—we’ll be giving you some clues on where to look. Learn more below!

      In the coming days, we’ll be sharing some clues on our Twitter page. Once you decipher them, visit the corresponding location (online or in real life) to find an item or QR code. Click the link or scan the item you found, and you’ll be whisked away to your collections page, where you can track all the items you’ve collected so far.
      The items you find earn you entries into a prize drawing, where you could win all kinds of amazing treasures. The number of entries you get for each item you find varies on its quality, so keep an eye out for those Legendaries!

      Among the prizes up for grabs are copies of the Diablo III Eternal Collection Nintendo Switch Bundle, digital copies of the game, and various collectible goodies. You can also earn real life versions of some of the items you’ll find on the hunt! These are one-of-a-kind artifacts, brought to life by the crafting masters at Volpin Props.
      If the idea of having your very own real-life Legendary item sounds appealing, be sure to follow us on Twitter and be on the lookout for the first clues.

      Think you have what it takes to solve all the clues and hunt down these treasures? There’s only one way to find out, nephalem! Good luck on the hunt, and may the best adventurer win.
