    1. Eliminate all worthless treasure including farm equipment, rusty tableware, and useless food. I believe all of them have a value of 1 and a weight of 1 but not sure. Useless food includes rolls and breads with a 3 minute duration.
    2. While I like the concept of serpent scales being used for defensive spells it's not really that common a reagent so it's not exactly in demand; and quite frankly it's really hard to harvest a small amount of it. Dragons and Daemons will result in a whole LOT of the stuff. For Alchemy it produces defensive potions but also requires tons of rare items like daemon hooves, phoenix feathers, etc.
    3. Please check the drop rate of Obsidian Boar Carcass (I harvest it in Ulfheim). All other Obsidian creatures will drop about 1:1 Obsidian and regular carcasses. With an Obsidian Boar it's at least 10:1. Personally I think Obsidian creatures shouldn't drop regular carcasses (it's like getting a wyvern carcass from a dragon) but that's just a suggestion.
    4. Suggestion for the Aether potion: 30 min duration, +40/+10 fp regen.

    Worthless? Make it all salvageable and it all has value...

    You can't salvage food. I don't know whether farm equipment is salvageable but I expect it would not yield much, nor rusty tableware. I just don't see why a lich or Obsidian soldier would carry a plow into battle.

    I wish they would flag items that drop but have no real use (e.g. Aortic Thrombus) as being gray so we know they're junk and have all vendors pay the same price for them. It would be a big help to newbies.

    Some day, the Aortic Thrombus will have a use.

    And I'll be ready.

    They do! They're worth 40 gold each.

    You'll all be so jealous when I'm the Aortic Queen of Novia.

    Maybe one could look at it from a different perspective...

    Make it salvageable.

    It had to be made of something, right?

    The higher the level, the better the yield. It yields what it yields...

    Food could easily be salvaged/converted into fertilizer, fish bait or chum, and animal food at a minimum, perhaps even fuel.

    Have a stack of 30k of these in a box myself lol
    Next to the cutworms, borers, mystic graff gems, quartz, salt ingots....


    Re: the "treasure" loot - have to agree 100% - I'm so sick of rusty cutlery and dirty clothes being classed as loot.
    This stuff should exclusively drop in like Tier 1-2 scenes only for newer folks who might want some of it to decorate with if they haven't accumulated much yet.
    Higher level scenes should at least drop quality tableware that can be salvaged to silver/gold scraps.

    I don't mind the stuff that's relatively light and can be sold, e.g. Aortic Thrombus, Black Cutworm, etc. I do mind stuff that no-one would ever carry (e.g. plow). All of this stuff also seems to have a standard weight and value of 1 no matter its size or bulk.
    Also, I find it annoying that Salvaging poor quality things from monsters often results in "pattern: xxx" but no actual salvage. Perhaps we don't want a pattern for rusty sword or shield and would rather have the 5-20 scrap metal?
    I have another suggestion for Aether Potion: Major Repair non-Artifact Item. There should be a way to do a major repair on a normal item without shelling out COTOs.
    @lordbane All vendors to pay the same amount for useless items because they don't fall into any category that anyone actually sells.
