"Disassembler" redirects here. For general information on disassembly, see Disassemble.

The auto disassembler is a machine that can be built in the Invention Guild basement at level 60 Invention. It automatically disassembles items put into it, even while the player is offline.

Every hour, on the hour (server time), the auto disassembler will process up to 35 items deposited in it, consuming up to 180 machine charge. Building it requires 30 of the power allotment supplied by the generator. It can hold up to 7,500 items over the three input slots. Researching the auto disassembler blueprint grants the player 32,284 Invention experience if researched with the "Perfect" quality. The unlocked junk chance reductions are taken into account, but the Invention master cape perk does not apply to the machine.

Items which are disassembled in batches count towards the item limit as once per item, not once per batch. For example, arrows are disassembled in batches of 50. This machine can process a maximum of 7500 arrows, not 375000.

Once the auto disassembler has processed some items, the resulting materials will be placed in a pouch of components in the output slot. When the pouch is withdrawn, all the materials (including junk) will be added directly to the bag of materials.

At level 81 Invention, the auto disassembler can be upgraded to the auto disassembler mk. II.

This is a good machine for breaking down items for components that you may passively want or need, such as Simple Components, or Junk for B.A.N.K Stander.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

The auto disassembler disassembles 35 items per hour at a cost of 180 machine charge. Thus, each item costs 5.1 machine charge to process - an equivalent of 87.9 coins per item.

The auto disassembler processes 840 items per day at a cost of 4,320 machine charge (approximately 1.5 divine charges). When completely filled, it will take 8 days 23 hours to disassemble the 7,500 input items, using 38,700 machine charges (just under 13 divine charges).

Update history[edit | edit source]

This information has been compiled as part of the update history project. Some updates may not be included - see here for how to help out!
  • ninja 14 December 2020 (Update):
    • Players will now receive log in and update messages whenever their Invention machines have finished processing their inputs, run out of secondary inputs, or run out of charges.
      • These messages can be toggled in the Login Messages or Notification Messages option menus.
    • Auto disassembler machines will now display the correct processing time for items disassembled in batches, such as ammunition.
      • The charge used to process such items will now be correctly calculated and consumed.
  • patch 5 August 2019 (Update):
    • Fixed a typo within the auto disassembler info window.
  • patch 9 October 2017 (Update):
    • Improved likelihood of receiving low chance components when auto-disassembling while logged in, to better match chances with regular disassembly.
