Resource Nodes or Resource Spawns

For all Tiers there is a small change that you will obtain rare crafting components from Resource Spawns or Farmer fields.

See the list above for links to the Tier specific Resource Spawns.

  • Further Information on Nodes.

There is no inherent 'refresh content timer' built into any resource Node. Once a Node has spawned into the Game World it will remain there until a Player comes and gathers from that Node. All the contents of any Node are randomly generated from a small Database Table of Contents. Random numbers between 1 and 2 and 3 for base materials and (mostly) single instances for additional materials gained, such as Gems or rare drops such as Shards. The interaction of a Player is the only time the contents of any Node is generated.

Mass Resource Node Maps

There are some mass resource nodes areas.

See this list of Crafting Instances for instances where ore/wood/artifacts can be farmed.


Drops

To find Tier 2 (Journeyman) through Tier 6 (Supreme) rare crafting components each Region has a list of rare Named Creatures that drop shards or flakes. For Westfold Tier 7 thru Westemnet Tier 9 Dungeon or Instances Bosses drop chests that contain these rare crafting components instead.

See the list above for links to the rare components which also list the regions.

Barter

Barter from one of these folks or see the list above for links to the Barterer

Quests

Some Tiers have repeatable quests that reward a rare crafting component. See the list above for links to the quests.
