I'm a bit annoyed at the teleporting costs. It's affecting the way I play and actually making me skip some social gaming. Not really somehting you'd want in a suppousedly social game.

It's not that I am not lazy but I am not a patient man, so here are emblems I think... Don't have the right colors though.
and here, one of my favourite :

I still vote for the happy octopus with trident, but bear comes in second :]

In general, sell all weapons, sell all green and blue armor, sell all heavy armor.
Salvage only light and medium armor.
Keep yellow and higher to sell to players.
It's not worth salvaging a 1 silver green armor only to get one piece of iron ore. Metal and wood are plentiful, only cloth and leather are rare. The biggest bottleneck in crafting is fine crafting materials anyway.

I just don't find lots of higher priced loot. I've kept a few pieces, but with the trade post down, I can't sell them. It's rather crappy you can't harvest leather and cloth. Metals and woods can be harvested AND salvaged. :/ Thanks for the tip anyway!!

Mkay, that must be it then, I'll keep a closer eye on the loot. I'm level 25 with a bit over 1 gold, it's not like I'm starving for money at all (I haven't actually bought anything with coins, just karma), but I'm also actively avoiding teleports.

So I have everything for monthly achievement, including survivor, but with one exception - 125 more items to salvage. Not sure if I should push for it (if I even have time) or if I should leave it.

sendmark: yes, I don't mind walking around a bit because of that same reason, random events. But oftentimes I just want to go back to town for crafting / repairs and get back to exploring or join someone somewhere.

By getting back to town you are using Mists - Lions Arch - City asura gates, right? For repairs, it's maybe better to just press on and wait for drops/heart rewards. I find the repair costs are simply not worth it given how quickly you can find replacement gear.

Sendmark: Mists what? Show up the map and press a waypoint in my home city. If there's a way going to PvP hubs and then to the home city, ANet should simply make regular teleports to town free and save us one loading screen, seriously. About repairs, I don't have that quick a rotation of gear, my stuff stays with me for 2-5 ingame hours, that's a lot of time to play with cracked armour. Or maybe I'm doing that wrong too, wouldn't surprise me right now. I'm kinda annoyed that all these mechanics are so obscure that someone has to explain them on a forum.

Yeah there is a thread on reddit pointing out that it is a bit silly making players go via the Mists, but it's >2 mins to get to any city, so worth saving the money. I guess it's all part of their business model, people who don't want to spend the additional time buy the cash with their gems.

I hope they change that and make porting to town free. I deal with enough bullshit in the real world to pay a game company for the privilege of not wasting my very scarce leisure time. Thank you for the information and references! The best gaming communities I've seen are truly RPS, Gamers with Jobs and Gaming Steve.

About selling vs salvaging gear, personally I sell white and blue gear, and I save green gear to stick into the mystic forge in lions arch - managed to get a few useful yellows / oranges from doing that (ok, just the one orange, but the possibility is there!).

Haven't tried sticking things into the Mystic Forge yet, but generally, I'll salvage anything that is worth less than 20-30 copper and sell the rest. Mind, I am level 40 at the moment, so that threshold might change in the future when better stuff is starting to drop or if I manage to calculate the cost/reward ratios for salvaging vs. selling directly.
