So i've finally begun to salvage the crap loot that I get, since the salvaged materials sell for much more than what the item would sell for. My question is, if you trinket the salvage, does that sell for even more?

Yes.

The rule of salvage is, Salvage rog items, then trinket. Never salvage Player crafted.

Thanks Hols!

Out of curiosity, what's the gain between selling salvaged rog items and trinketing that salvage. For exaxmple, say 2 arcanium bars sell for 5 gold total, what would be the sell price if you trinketed them?

What's a trinket?

I know I asked Hols this last night, but I must have been really out of it as I don't remember the answer.

What's a Gurub?

Trinkets are just that, crap you can make with metal bars (formerly to skill metalworking) but allows you to sell the metal for more money.  I think only because you took the "time" to turn it into "something."
"I’ll take an earnest person over a hip person every time, because hip is short-term. Earnest is long term. Earnestness is highly underestimated. It comes from the core, while hip is trying to impress you with the surface."

Thanks Hols! Those 2 links were very informative!

Though i can't believe it cost him 17 plat to get to 1100 as a fletcher. I shudder to think what my weaponcrafting cost.

Hols, one more question: When trinketing, you still get back ~99% of value when trinketing items that require more than 2 pieces of salvage material correct?

For instance, when trinketing 108 pieces of wood, instead of making 54 toy swords, I can make 5 ornate wood boxes and those will sell back for 99% value?

yes, the ornate stuff uses more materials and makes it easier to trinket while returning the same amount of profit.
