Harvesting and Scavenging
If you plan to become an efficient crafter, then you will need to know where to get your supplies. Sure you can buy most of what you need at merchants and on the auction, but then you'll find yourself very poor in a short time. This guide is meant to help give you an idea as to where to look and what to look for. It will be broken down into 4 sub-categories, each covering in detail the various nodes in the game. This will help you decide which nodes to harvest or animals to kill in order to obtain those hard to find tradeskill components.
Note: Most tests involved 25 - 100 checks to get an idea of what comes from each node. This doesn't mean this is an all inclusive listing, but merely a guideline of what each node rewards. Individual results will likely differ from these tests, but should be very close.
2nd Note: When scavenging, the higher the skill, the more likely you will find the highest quality items. This has a direct effect on the listings in this guide and each player may experience different results because of this. With this in mind, use these listings only as a guideline of what you will receive.
