Guild Store has some overlooked gems, some help w/ Scavenger, some with gearing, and the shard economy has changed the math on character farming.
NOTE: My math is off, Math is hard, did extra doublings. The broader point is the lower salvage is used at high rates that will consume your inventory quickly, these pieces avoid that.
