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

      A new season is almost upon us so it's time to take a look at what it will be bringing! Along with a blood teddy bear and pretty great new portrait frame, coming the real reason to roll a new season is the new sets coming with Haedrig's gift, so here's what's coming on February 23rd:
      Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Necromancer – Grace of Inarius Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery
        Season 13 (source)
      Season 13 begins soon! For those among you who enjoy the fresh start a Season brings, we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect before you race out the gate.
       
      New Cosmetic Rewards
      As per tradition, Season 13 will introduce new cosmetic rewards, obtainable by progressing through the Season Journey.
      In addition to the Helm and Shoulders slots of the exclusive Conqueror Set, a brand-new series of portraits themed around Imperius will be available. Those who enjoy collecting pets will also be pleased to see a new arrival—Blaine’s Bear! While traveling together, you may be tempted to ask him why he’s covered in blood, or try removing the sharp objects he carries around. We strongly advise against this.

       
      Season Journey Rewards
      If you’ve been playing the past few Seasons diligently and reached Conqueror in the Season Journey each time, you’ve accrued a few extra stash tabs. Players who have not yet earned a total of four stash tabs via the Season Journey can still unlock an additional one by completing the following tasks at the Conqueror tier:
      Complete a Torment XIII Rift in under 5 minutes Complete Greater Rift 60 solo Kill Greed on Torment XIII Kill Cydaea on Torment XIII in under 15 seconds Reforge a Legendary or Set item Augment an Ancient item with a Level 50 or greater Legendary Gem Level three Legendary Gems to 55 Complete two Conquests  
      Seasonal Conquests
      Speaking of Conquests, we’re rotating those, too! Love going fast? Sprinter and Speed Racer will be making a return. Enjoy testing your mettle in Greater Rifts? Divinity and Lionhearted are also coming back. If you’d rather max out your kill count with Cursed Chests, Curses! and Stars Align will be right up your alley. Those who enjoy seeing how far they can go without Set Items will get a kick out of The Thrill and Super Human. Finally, if you’re keen to show off your mastery of Set Dungeons, Masters of the Universe and Masters of Sets will be available once more.

       
      Haedrig’s Gift
      Finally, just as before, you’ll get a shiny new Class Set courtesy of Haedrig’s Gift for completing certain chapters in the Season Journey. We’ve listed the available Sets below. For those new to Seasons, here’s how it works:
      Completing Chapters 2, 3, and 4 of the Season Journey will reward you with three Haedrig’s Gifts. Each Gift contains a few pieces from one of your Class Sets. Players can only unlock one Class Set in this manner per Season across Hardcore and Non-Hardcore, so choose wisely!
      The set you will receive depends on the Class of the character you’re playing when you open each Haedrig’s Gift. To collect a full Class Set, you’ll need to open all three on the same character.
      Here are the sets granted by Haedrig’s Gift in Season 13:
      Barbarian – Might of the Earth Crusader – Thorns of the Invoker Demon Hunter – The Shadow’s Mantle Monk – Monkey King’s Garb Necromancer – Grace of Inarius Witch Doctor – Raiment of the Jade Harvester Wizard – Firebird’s Finery
       
      Frequently Asked Questions
      Q: When does Season 13 start?
      A: Season 13 begins Friday, February 23 at 5:00 p.m. PST in North America, 5:00 p.m. CET in Europe, and 5:00 p.m. KST in Asia. For time zone conversion, see this site.
      Q: When are the non-Seasonal Leaderboards being wiped?
      A: Non-Seasonal Leaderboards are tied to what we call “Eras,” each of which lasts about 6–12 months. The most recent era began November 9. For more information on Eras, please see this post.
      Q: What will happen to older Seasonal and Era records?
      A: Starting with Season 10, we removed old personal bests from Season 1. When Season 13 arrives, we will remove old personal bests from Season 4, and so on. We will be doing the same for personal bests from the previous Era when the next one goes live.
      Seasonal Leaderboard records are not being cleared and will remain archived both in game and on our website.
       
      Season 13 is almost here! What are your goals for this Season? Is there a build you want to give your full attention, or do you have another goal lined up?
      Let us know in the comments below, and we’ll see you for the start of Season 13!

      On January 12, Blizzard temporarily disabled the legendary effect on Bone Ringer. Players that utilized the bug to gain an unfair advantage over other classes recently had their accounts suspended.
      It was difficult to track down accounts involved in the exploit, but Blizzard eventually issued account suspensions and removed affected players from the leaderboards on February 9, 2018.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Greetings all,

      A couple weeks ago, an exploit was discovered in which Necromancers could receive an unfairly high advantage over other classes. Utilizing this exploit required both implicit knowledge and intention to execute and, as a result, we are issuing account suspensions and removing affected records from the leaderboards.

      You may be wondering why we're executing this now rather than when we originally fixed the exploit; the long and short of it is that this was a very complicated issue to track and we are, as always, dedicated to ensuring we are not punishing players who may be innocent.

      Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain as honest and fair a gaming environment as we can.
