Inventors are NPCs who offer multiple services for the player. Inventors can separate items from inserted components, saving one or the other. Later in game, they'll learn how to dismantle items using dynamite, producing scrap and components. In Forgotten Gods, they also gain the ability to replace an item with another from the same set.
There are a total of three Inventors throughout the game.
Salvage[edit | edit source]
The salvage chamber is used to separate components from items. The player can then choose to keep either the item or the added component. If the item is recovered, the component will be lost, and vice versa. A different component can then be applied to the salvaged item, or the salvaged component used on a different item. Augments can also be removed without destroying the item (and indeed, choosing to keep the item will always destroy its augment as well as its component).
Dismantling[edit | edit source]
Placing an item of Magical (yellow) or better quality in the dismantling chamber will break it down into basic parts, converting the item into valuable scrap and components. The more powerful the item, the more powerful the components it can generate. This process requires dynamite.
Inventors gain the ability to dismantle items after completion of the Dangerous Curiosity side quest.
Transmuting[edit | edit source]
With the Forgotten Gods expansion, inventors become able to exchange one piece of an item set for another random piece of the same set. The ability is unlocked for all inventors after completing the Tome of Eanatum side quest for Kargon.
