How To Salvage Gear In Lost Epoch


There is no shortage of loot in

Once your item is in the gear slot, select the “Use a Modifier Item” option near the bottom of the screen. Here, you need to use a Rune of Shattering, which is the only way to salvage an item in Last Epoch. Any other Rune does not grant you the ability to salvage an item. The Rune of Shattering has a firebird icon on it and can be acquired like any other piece of loot in the game.

After you have equipped your item and the Rune of Shattering in the Forge, press the big, red “Shatter” box at the bottom of the screen. This will deconstruct the item and return all of its Affix Shards and Glyphs to your inventory. I suggest placing all of your crafting items in the Forge so they don’t clog up your inventory, which is done by pressing the “Transfer Materials” box located on the right side of the inventory screen.

With your item shattered, you can no longer use it in Last Epoch. For the most part, you can only salvage common and rare items, so Legendary or Unique items won’t be salvageable. The purpose of the salvage system is to acquire shards and glyphs to use for crafting in Last Epoch, which is an entirely different feature.
