Luck and Basic Salvage Tool
Luck from Ecto = 105
Luck from Masterwork = 30
Luck from Fine = 11

Ecto: 1845 - 1994 (1694 after tax)
Dust: 1130 - 1175 (998 after tax)
Number of Dust per salvaged Ecto with Master/Mystic/SFSoM: 1.85
Note: I reversed these so they display profit instead of cost (higher positive numbers = better)
The cost of salvaging ecto (positive numbers = profit for you):

Help and Info:
 ● Gives cost info on items that give luck
 ● Ectos give the most per salvage (and can be salvaged quicker), but also tend to cost a lot for each luck you get. I included several ways to handle ectos, depending if you're buying them or already have them, or selling them or using them.
 ● Positive values per luck mean you lose that much, negative values mean you gain that much. (negative means you should do it even if not looking for luck).
 ● Some blue and green items give valuable materials cheaper than they can be purchased in the TP (sometimes even able to sell it at a profit). The table will tell you which items and the max price you should pay to break even compared to just buying that material off the TP for buy order prices.  The cheaper you buy an item below this amount, the more profit you will make.
 ● 'Dont show all items below' will not show number values (just an empty box) for that item/level if the amount needed to buy below is less than this amount (it's likely it's just not possible to buy items cheaply enough)
 ● All calculations include the cost and chance of promotion of an Infinite kit; 3c per salvage, 12% chance of higher tier

● Basic Materials Salvage Drop Rates:
 Crude has 10% chance of higher tier
 Basic/Infinite has 12.5% chance of higher tier
 Fine has 13.75% chance of higher tier
 Journeyman has 15% chance of higher tier
 Master/Mystic has 16.25% chance of higher tier
 BLSK has 22.5% chance of higher tier

If you're not sure what level is the best to open masterwork bags at: Silverwaste's chart is pretty good.
