I have been keeping my "trophies". Do I need them for anything or can I sell them?

Thanks for the help

The ones that can go into your bank should be kept for crafting. The other ones are junk and can be sold to the merchant.

AFAIK they don't serve any real purpose yet, I've been merching mine. However if you're worried about them become relevant in the future, keep some of the ones that you have larger stacks of.

I've seen a few different types so far:

Blue Trophies, such as Vial of Weak Blood and Tiny Claws are used in crafting. Keep these for crafting or to sell on.
White Trophies, which seem to be tied to events.
Grey Trophies, which are vendor trash.

Tip: Use the "Deposit all Collectables" function. If you got any Trophies left, chances are they aren't much use aside from vendoring.

Great info everyone, thank you. Yeah, I was referring to the trophies that simply say "trophy" like hoofs, claws etc. These are the items that dont go into my collectables storage.

If they say "Salvageable" on them, they are just that. You can use the Salvage kits on them and turn them into crafting mats. Otherwise, just vendor them.

I've been wondering since beta why those things aren't under the "sell junk" button.  Its kind of a pain to have them clogging up your bags and then having to go through and find them cause they don't fall under "junk" category.

Don't quote me on this but I believe it is because quest items that you turn in while filling up hearts are listed under trophies. You wouldn't want to accidentally sell them before you got a chance to talk to the NPC and turn them in.

ETA: also salvageable items are under trophies too, no?

You cant sell the quest items. They dont show up when selling items. Also there are no prices for them.

But you can turn them in at the corresponding renownheart guy/gal even after you have completed the heart. Ive started an event through this in gandarran fields yesterday o.O

I think after you have finished that renown heart you can sell them.  At least I thought I did in one area.

I've just been scrapping any event items after the event if well over.  Some of them seem like you can acquire them even if the event isn't even going on, so as far as I know they just take up bag space at that point.  Between the "Deposit All Collectibles" button on your inventory and the "Sell All Junk" button on vendors you should be able to get a good idea of what's what.

I have been selling about everything. Getting gear in this game is super easy. The only gear I do not sell are the yellows and above. So far I have 5 yellows. I don't have anything higher then this at the moment.
When i sell stuff i always Deposite all collectables, scrap scrapable items,(pieces of scrap metal, hides, ect..) then hit the sell all junk button and sell the rest of the gear I do not want. This is how I do it and it works prettygood for me.
