Junk rares have jumped to about 2s and junk masterworks to nearly 5s, and I am pretty sure the reason it didn't happen a couple days ago was because everyone was waiting to see just how bad the salvage rate was on getting essences of luck. And I admit: I am impressed. Anet LOVES the RNG and they LOVE to punish people with RNG. Normally "common" chances are something like 10% and "rare" chances feel like .0001% (although they are probably closer to 1%). But so far - and I expect this to get nerfed - the salvage chance on a rare or masterwork item to get luck is something on the order of 75-80% from my own small sample rate. (And thank goodness they said the salvage kit doesn't make a difference!)
That's incredibly rewarding, since that means nearly every salvage gets you something. And especially right now, when everyone's total Luck is low, it doesn't take much to raise it up. So you really feel like you're getting something for your in-game money, even though it's based on RNG - which, again, is so anti-Anet I have to admit again that I am impressed.
Hopefully a sign of things to come?
