Equipment separator detail.png

The equipment separator is a device available at level 115 Invention. It can be used on augmented items of equipment level 15 and above to remove the gizmos from the item, without destroying either the gizmos or items. The item will remain augmented, retaining the item level and XP present on it. The separator will be the only object destroyed in the process, unless the item in question has a level over 17 or 19, where there is a 25% and 50% chance respectively for the separator to be saved.

The use of a separator contrasts with other methods of modifying gizmos. Namely, using a separator removes all gizmos from the item intact - unlike a gizmo dissolver, which targets just one and does not return the gizmo. Additionally, low level Invention tools could either keep the gizmos (by disassembly at item level 8 or higher, or equipment dissolver); or the item itself by using an augmentation dissolver, depending on the relative value of each aspect. However, optimal PvE gear usually has both: gizmos using expensive components and expensive base items, and the equipment separator gives the player the option to keep the item as well over those two methods. Thus the equipment separator allows the player to sell the gear while upgrading (note that if the player is looking to sell the item also, an augmentation dissolver will still be required to remove the augmentation), or swap in differing gizmos tailored for different encounters without paying to recreate them.

Price estimation[edit | edit source]

With junk reduction 9, here are some estimated prices - see calculators for more options:

Total cost of a separator: 5,031,409

Thus you should use a separator if making a new gizmo with the same perk would cost more than this. Otherwise, using a gizmo dissolver and re-making the perk would be better.

Some common high-value gizmos which warrant using a separator include:
