Equipment separator

Not to be confused with Gizmo dissolver.

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, while retaining the item level/XP present, without destroying either the gizmos or items, destroying the separator in the process. If the item in question has a level of 17 or 19, there is a 25% and 50% chance respectively for the separator to be saved.

Using a separator removes all gizmos from the item - unlike a gizmo dissolver, which targets just one and does not return the gizmo.

If players want to save expensive gizmos from an augmented item and also disassemble it for materials, players can simply disassemble the item at level 8 or higher. This will recover all the gizmos from the item, as well as gain XP and materials by disassembling the item. An equipment separator is not required in this case.

Price estimation[edit | edit source]

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

Total cost of a separator: 4,235,371

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:
