[Gold] The worth of Salvaged Debris and Petrified Wood
36 platinum doubloons : 16g 94s 07c
40 gold doubloons : 8g 94s 20c
18 silver doubloons : 29g 84s 76c
29 copper doubloons : 6g 24s 69c
330 blues and greens recycled into 7g 75s 81c of mats and 3940 luck
2 rares : 69s 84c
1 exo : 2g 18s 84c
48 cristalline piles of dust : 8g 07s 84c
143 piles of incandescent dust : 3g 47s 53c
27 Globs of ectoplasm : 7g 52s 22c
264 Bottles of Rum + 265 Clumps of Pitch + 16 Broken spoons : 2g 29s 49c
1279 reclaimed wood chunks recycled into 97g 95s 88c of wood
122 salvageable meta scraps recycled into 2g 21s 48c of metal
For a total of 194g 13s 65c.
To that, we can add :
321 Petrified wood at about 37um/wood so 33g 25s56c
for a grand total of 255g 47s 89c, so 25s 55c on average.
1000 skritt contracts cost 980 000 karma and 1000 petrified wood.
gw2efficiency gives us a cost of opportunity profit of 7s64c per 1000 karma, so 75g 87s 20c.
1000 petrified wood are worth about 37 000 UM so 103g 60s.
Which makes us a profit of 74g 20s 93c, so 7s 42c on average per salvaged debris.
I didn’t find a good research on petrified wood salvage, so here it is.
Basically, with a copper-fed salvage kit, petrified wood salvages into 37.425 UM/wood, whereas it walvages into 38.335 UM/wood with a Mystic salvage kit. As with the blood rubies, use the lowest kits, the difference is not worth it.
EDIT : reverted the gold notations from 1.2345g to 1g 23s 45c because some people apparently thought it meant you could get thousands of gold from this. (sadly no)
