Since it is not economically viable to buy these instead, has anyone tested whether you're more likely to salvage rare materials?

From the update notes it appears that you're no more likely to salvage better stuff. The reason I like them is that you take up one inventory slot instead of 4 for 100 salvages/identifications. --Rainith 22:01, 9 Sep 2005 (EST)
You don't have to carry 4, you can just buy them one at a time. :) Never in all my adventuring have I used a full ID kit or a full Expert kit in one exploration. On average, I use about 10-15 salvages and 5-7 IDs. Yes, I do run out of uses sometimes, but it is not worth paying 400 gold extra. :P --Karlos 23:31, 9 Sep 2005 (EST)
Ah, I guess you've never gone solo charr hunting in Flame Temple Corridor, I've used 2 full salvage kits on just the salvage items there. Personally I think they're worth it, but I wouldn't mind it if they dropped the price. --Rainith 17:23, 10 Sep 2005 (EST)
Indeed, if you only carry one kit, you at LEAST need to watch it and make sure it's not running low. When it is, I get another one -- using up two slots. With the Superior, I don't need to be carrying two kits as often. I'm not totally sold on the Superiors, but I also assume they wanted to make it a gold sink for the economy. --JoDiamonds 02:02, 28 October 2005 (EST)
I too had the impression that you were more likely to slavage items using a superior salvage kit than an expert kit. Is there any specific information available concerning this that could be consulted? --Healer Monk
From the update notes when the Sup salvage kit was released: Added Superior Salvage Kits and Superior Identification Kits, which are the same as Expert Salvage Kits and Identification Kits except with 100 charges instead of 25. --Rainith 10:45, 9 March 2006 (CST)
Granted, they've misreported themselves before... --Carmine 16:11, 21 October 2006 (CDT)

i also heard from other players that superior salvage has a better chance to get more materials when salvaging but i havent tested as im too poor to afford all those salvage kits :(...but(believe me or not)i was going to salvage a weapon from the shiverpeaks and i do remember accidently salvaging the item with my superior and got something like 10 iron ingots instead of my usual 7 or so that i get with expert or maybe i just got lucky at that time...who knows ;P

I get rare crafting materials when I use the Superior Salvage Kit. Giangn626 23:06, 24 March 2007 (CDT)

Big surprise...

The merchant in front of tombs does not sell superior salavage kits. 04:09, November 15, 2009 (UTC)
