I was wondering just what would happen if you salvaged your ever so precious legendary weapon. Would you get 0-5 ectos since they have the same stats as exotics or other special things, maybe they'd give you back a couple of gifts? I doubt anyone is willing to try this but I'm really curious about it.

1 minute after salvaging your legendary,a SWAT-TEAM enters your house through every window and door and arrest you....
Reason: You must be a psychopat!!

Salvage Kits give you 66% the items you invested at best...I salvage a lot of things, from whites to exotics but man you'd have to be crazy to salvage a Legendary!

The sudden realisation that you did something so stupid that people will refer to foolish acts by your name for centuries to come.

the realisation that arena net never bothered to create a salvage loot table for legendary weapons and as such you get nothing.

To answer, yes, some ectos (even none), base mats, the sigil. Use master kit.

What I want to know is what happens when you toss 4 legendaries into the mystic forge. That's the real mystery

Zomorros responds only with 'Yes'.

Later on, you discover Zomorros interpreted it as a marriage proposal...

This is not a sufficient sample size. I demand to see 1000 more salvages of legendaries before I make a final judgement.

As i said, to laugh on the face of who still dream to find a precursor, don't you see how much fun he's having wasting 4 precursors? :P

Actually, this is why (from the maker of the vid):

Quote

To begin, I did not wish to reveal the reasons that made me create this video and only collect the comments. But, the reason is that I decided to stop GW2. My real life has become more important to me than my virtual life. The health issues my five months pregnant wife is experiencing has called me back to reason. I would've liked to quit an mmo for a much more classic reason, but it's far from the case.

That's why I wanted to get a memento of my time in Guild Wars 2 in this video. So I can find comments that would make me smile, wetter they are positive or negative. Yes, I am aware that this decision is extreme in the eyes of certain people, but it will prevent me from being tempted to play again...for the good of my little family.

To answer certain questions, I did not try and do not wish to sell my account which is a practice forbidden by ArenaNET. I cannot give away the precursors or sell them at the trading post because they're all soulbound.
That's why I opted for this exit, wetter it pleases people or not.



I must say, he became legendary, by salvaging a legendary.

Hope this guy realised he pretty much just wasted his life.
I don't buy the sob story about him having a wife or what not.
Just seems like someone raging with the game,decided to quit and thought of the biggest way he could be an ass about doing it.

Haha he should've used a master's kit :) Maybe that was the mistake. 0.1 % chance of salvaging some kind of legendary crafting material!

In all seriousness, glad someone has a video of this. I was always curious about it.
RL is RL. Sometimes stuff happens, and if you're going to quit might as well go out in style.

At any rate, the cheapest legendary right now costs ~400g (for the cash portion), which is not really a lot of money. Anyone desiring a larger sample size should start there :)

Yes, some person who you've never heard of, and never would've heard of without this video, salvaging a weapon is "being an ass".

Are you kidding me? Him salvaging a legendary has no effect on anyone but himself. Why would he lie about IRL taking over? He has a legendary, clearly he has an addictive personality. He made a choice to quit the game because he knew it would get in the way.

Seems like an easy choice for me, I guess to someone without priorities it isn't though.

These videos are probably made by some addict guys who need something to do in order to leave the game and make sure they'll never come back...

And as said above, it's a good way to make the community mad. I don't think they deserve more attention, but! at least the question is now answered: we get a "legendary" ore or log :P
