Introduction

This list will help you to sort out required vs. useless items more quickly. Keep in mind that there are dozens of builds in the game with vastly different requirements, so make sure to check out each individual guide for the builds you're playing to see what they need. These recommendations only account for typical meta builds, many of these insta-salvage items can still be used for memes, for fun, to make your own creations or play weaker versions of other builds. Use the CTRL + F search function to find the item you're looking for!
