Dead Maze Wiki

These are generally resource-giving items, or items that just don't fall in another category.

Resource items[]

These have no practical use other than being salvaged into resources, but some give a much larger amount of resources than usual when salvaged to make up for their otherwise uselessness. Unlike other items, these have no quality, which also means they are always salvageable. They also do not degrade when equipped. These almost always have icons with a cyan background.
