It is desireable indeed for those of us who have normal schedules.

I think they need like 7 maps not 4... Or 10 maps... or a scaling number of maps to suit the population of the servers...

Cheating death for fun and profit!
I started ignoring my damaged gear buildup after earning a repair-everything-free item, but that was a couple days ago and I still haven't used it. Replacing old gear is often better than repairing it! If you replace gear at a reasonable rate and aren't suicidal, that's easy money. Repairing broken gear is also the same cost as repairing damaged gear, though at that point you're losing the stats&effects while it's broken, and salvage/sell/destroy broken stuff in your inventory before repairing so you don't pay extra. It's also best to have friendlies around when you die to avoid teleport costs.
TLDR: repairing your gear early is unnecessary and costly.

You have to drop 5% of the item's asking price when putting it up, and the TP takes a 10% cut.

Salvaging anything that doesn't have a major magical ability best as I can tell is a waste. You'll end up with "trophies" like ripped pelts and bits of metal scrap that are worth less than the item if you had just vendered it. And salvage kits cost money.Virtual Pilot 3D™ NEVER NOT SCAM!

Have to say I agree with this actually. I've made 1.5 gold on my alt who's level 31 just from selling blues and not salvaging them. And that's with constantly repairing my armour. Having said that I only rely on drops for gear upgrades, so despite being a tough little Ellie with the maxed flame power of a Royal Marine on Red Bull who's just eaten five curries, he's got the equipment of a newt.

Anyway, salvage whites, vendor blues and greens, sell lower-level yellows on the trading post, and salvage level 68+ yellows for ectoplasm. That's all there is to it, and that hasn't changed.

The absence of a trade channel would suggest AN don't want you doing this. But that's just my opinion. By all means, continue.

I salvage everything, because I know that I may be using the materials at some point for a legendary, and I need every edge I can get in using less time in getting it.
Also, I've gotten orrichulum from salvage, which is well worth the money.
On another note. Not sure if everyone here knows this, but if you're farming in Orr it's best to do it in a group because the rare finding system operates the same in D3 and TL2, that is you have a higher chance of finding rares in a party with more people than you do on your own.
Get partying folks!

I sell anything blue or up. Not seeing that many high level drops yet personally so that'll change when I need to start saving the high end crafting resources.
Oh, I also keep a small selection of the lower level gathering gear depending on the area I'm walking through because I'm incredibly cheap and copper ore sells like gangbusters.

...And once again I curse AreaNet for not including some damn instructions with their game.
Just out of curiosity I used a salvage kit on a metal scrap and like magic, it turned into a usable crafting item. Which then pointed and laughed at me as hit my head against my desk.Virtual Pilot 3D™ NEVER NOT SCAM!

This is why the first thing I always did when I got a new game was read the instruction manual cover-to-cover.Virtual Pilot 3D™ NEVER NOT SCAM!

The tooltip for the scrap itself.
There's also the fact that, in MMOs, grey means "crap to sell" and white means "crap that is useful somehow." All scrap is white.

Does it always follow that the grey ones is for the crap to sell, or it varies per site? Not so familiar with this tooltip thingy.

Trophies you get during heart quests can also be given to the heart quest guy to raise the progress bar.
