    Hello ... I know it was a diskussion month ago about the drop-rate from Elven Hilts by salvaging Rapiers and Elven Estocs.

    Just a question today.

    Yesterday I salvaged tons of Elven Estocs , Basket Guard Rapiers and Swept Guard Rapiers;
    a few normal and tons of +1 .

    But I did not get any Elven Hilt from those.

    My salvaging Skill is GM; all other Blacksmith and Carpetry Skills are 120+

    was I just unfortunate or are there the Elvin Hilts gone from salvaging?

    They still drop, I had one the other day; In the past month I guess I have gotten around three in total and I am relatively casual these days due to work.

    Elven hilts have never had a very reliable drop chance, I almost suspect they got missed in the 'salvage components boost' pass that happened a while back.

    the number for the jira on checking if these sorts tier three components were dropping was 66026, which does not specifically mention elven hilts.

    I salvaged a number of elven estocs a week or two ago and got some hilts. It was about 1/5. I have 120 salvage and had a reclamation potion going.

    I think the drop rate went "down" when pattern drops went up. The math itself probably didn't change, but since you only get one drop from a salvage I suspect maybe Shroud rolls for a pattern first, and if it gets one, it doesn't bother rolling for components. That's speculation though, it may be that the game rolls for all possible drops and gives you the "best" result. But that feels unlikely.
