    To set expectations it lets you sell your thousands of tower boosts for a few dust. And then the only thing you can buy is tower boosts for double the price you sold them for.

    What is epic though is the sell price is static and the buy price goes up exponentially the more you get.

    Sell 5000 tower boosts - then buy 400 back - winning!!

        For those without salvage shop, heres what you can currently salvage for dust -

        • Anything you can forge
        • Food and lumber packs
        • Xp boosts
        • Food and wood boosts
        • Other spells like super freeze, soa, super tstorm, super chain lightning

        And here is what you can redeem dust for -

        • Anything you can forge, excluding 12h clocks

        3 random items are offered in the shop each day, you can only redeem dust for items currently available in the shop so you likely have to wait a while for something you want to show up.

        I guess I missed those popular things, seems to be a lot of hammers in there lately! Uhm yeah guess my memory sucks, not much to get excited about with the salvage shop! Would be great if I could salvage all the rubbish towers I have in storage 😐

          That was supposed to be one of the options too.

          No money in it, I guess.

          Now that salvage dust from base boosts was nerfed and 12h clocks were removed I can't wait for this "useful feature".

      • #52
        Would definitely like to know where it's at and why the rest of us haven't received it yet.

        It sounds like it has been made into a useless feature, but still, not having access to it while others still do it seems a bit strange.

        If they've given up on it it should have been removed from the beta testers.
        If they're still planning on releasing it then it would be nice if that was done in a timely manner.

          Honestly this shouldn't need a beta test. You're literally just punching in numbers of what to sell things for and what to buy things for. If you can't get your "data" in under a week to enable you to publish the feature to the public, don't even attempt it. This should've been released to everyone on day one. It's obvious you are just jacking the prices for the most wanted items so please count me out. You've stalled so long I don't even want it anymore, great wok PG...

            I never saw a beta test forum of this nor any discussions to improve it. They just activated it and forgot about it. Dead alts have it others don't have it.

            It's an 'oops 🙊 true we had a salvage shop, but who gives a fuck 🤣🤷🏻*♂️' feature...

            Big advertisement no gain.

              It was to collect data on what's useful or useless in chests, so they can fill chests with more useless things, while pretending they're not nerfing chests. That was the entire point of this exercise. It's also why they exponentially scale the prices and stop selling useful things for dust. It's why they nerfed the sell price of tower/dragon boosts, while increasing their drop rate in chests. They consider the data collected now, so have no reason to bring it out to the general public, who could then turn their 8000 tower boosts into log(8000) * something, which is still more than 0.

              On the 25th of April you posted that the Salvage shop had been in testing for a month.
              Five months down the track and we still haven't seen it rolled out to the wider community.
              Back then you indicated the mechanics of the shop were looking good with few reports of bugs or issues.
              You just wanted to tweak the values.... so what's the hold up?

              If there was minimal bugs five months ago how has it taken this long to tweak the values?

                Planning the Atlas launch party probably added a lot of meetings to the schedule. They're a small team.

                Is it being reset for launch or just being scrapped??

            • #58
              Will our dust not carry over? We are being forced to use it on something we might not want??
              Even if something that we do want pops up before reset, being forced to dump all our dust on it is ensuring that we pay a ton for exponentially smaller return since the price jumps up so fast. This is extremely unfair.

                The mail says that its being reiterated and improved while its unavailable - for a future release.
                SilentOne the point is that the mail is implying everyone will get it. At that point, those of us who have it now will have nothing to salvage because we did already (which is fair). But the dust we got from doing that, we are being forced to basically waste before it temporarily goes away. See what I mean?

                Gotcha!
                Would be nice if PG clarified things better though. Specially when someone comes on and says they got a message saying it was being removed, but not that it would be returning in a future update!

              Does anyone from PG want to clarify what is going on with the Salvage Shop?

              If this is being scrapped then it shows strongly why Beta tests of any sort should not be public knowledge.

              This is a feature the players asked for, you created it, tweaked it until it was pointless (from the sound of it) and now you appear to be scrapping it.

                SilentOne I'm not sure about further perspectives --- I haven't been involved in the salvage shop at all

                But as the person working on the security for the app, I've found that people are using the salvage shop as a cheat vector. I would personally be against releasing it more broadly until it can get a serious security audit & code overhaul.

                  Thank you very much for this response CL. Removing it from the game for this reason makes perfect sense and I am completely behind its removal to prevent cheating..

                  If that's the case thanks for removing it entirely. I'll use all my dust and hope that this comes back in the future when the bugs are worked out

                  That doesn't make sense. If you're so moonstruck into closing cheating vectors you might as well close down the whole game for security's sake
