Salvage Techniques

Jump to navigationJump to search


Salvage Techniques is a skill which allows you to recover a certain percentage of the base cost of a building when you tear it down. In previous Tellings, it followed a 'diminishing returns' pattern, with some variance for each material.

  • Level 1 - 40%
  • Level 2 - 60%
  • Level 3 - 75%
  • Level 4 - 80%
  • Level 5 - 85%
  • Level 6 - 90%
  • Level 7 - 95%

Salvage Techniques will NOT recover materials from Compounds which are torn down, nor from buildings which are too far degraded to use.
