    I personally make Daggers from Gold ingots.

    Daggers take 3 Ingots and give 3 Residue back in return - seems like a good swap to me :)

    And gold ingots arn't really worth much tbh.. so 100,000gp for 1k residue seems like a good return for me?

    what do you guys do?
     
  2. I'm not so worried about residue. Almost anything has some loot that can be unraveled to residue. I kill things and bring back the loot to unravel at the queens forge with the idea that I may get more essence which is what I worry about besides relics. I am only at 107 imbuing and I'm not a million/billionaire so I have to spend time getting stuff to continue training in imbuing. Using the methods described in the FAQ I only need residue. If I were a millionaire I might do as you do. If I try to imbue anything I rapidly run out of relics and essence so I am trying to hold off till I can get to 120 but I really wanted a elemental slayer axe so I used up most of my relics doing that. I fooled around making some jewelry and used up all of essence doing that ::sad3: Fortunately I haven't explored Ter mur much yet so I am doing so and learning how to kill things. If I could only figure out how to kill the trapdoor spiders (with my imbuer)......man they are mean guys....

    Anything I loot that either doesn't have some very specific mods on it that I am looking for, for further use, or can't either be directly or one-hit enhanced/imbued to a relic frag, goes in a bag, and hit with the unravel container option.

    I've managed to stockpile over 15k residue, 5.5k essence and ~150 fragments - all at minimal/no cost. That's not including what I used to take the skill to legendary, or the 500 essences for the 120. In the same amount of time, I've managed to accumulate roughly 2m gold, 50k or so horned leather, 15k or so regular leather, 35k spined, and another 4-5k barbed. Also have anywhere from 50 to several hundred of multiple imbuing ingredients. Multiple dozens of quest items for Axem.

    That's in roughly 30 days of sporadic play time, while also tending (not all at once) 400 plants (yielding ~150 SoR's). So I kind of prefer my rate of return :)

    When I was mass producing residue I used daggers with dull copper ingots and bokuto with oak I believe. Not sure if either method still viable as I have not done this in awhile.

    I used dull copper ingots. You would get back about 5 residue for every 6 ingots. This was making exceptional daggers and unraveling them.

    I always save my loot now, but I would be interested in a method that is greater than 1:1.

    haven't really bothered to make things to unravel. i just pick up the light loot, 1-2 stone, toss in a bag and unravel later. Have got 20k residue, 9k essence, and about 400 relics.

    though recently bought a bag of 25 DC hammers for 50k,trying to get some 100% weaps. been unraveling any non 100%(so far that all of them rolleyes:), have been getting about 200 residue and 20-30 essences per hammer

    I went through a period where I kept and filled every spined kit LBOD I got after the BOD changes a couple years ago, so I craft with normal leather with the spined kits, look through the results for anything with imbuing potential (1-3 maxed intensities with most of the EX/Lore bonus in 1 or 2 resists), then unravel the rest. I get 2-5 items worth experimenting on, and over 100 residue, per kit.
