Gathering resources

Gathering FAQ v1.1

Preface

Hello Hyborian Adventurers, this is my first attempt to write an all round gathering FAQ. English is not my main language, so please be aware of any spelling issues. The reason I wrote this FAQ is fairly simple, a gathering FAQ is lacking. When I’m playing Age of Conan I notice many people asking about the gathering part of Age of Conan. Many of the questions they ask are fairly simple to answer, so I would like to cover that what is not clear to many people. Any help to improve this FAQ even further is always appreciated, one cannot make the perfect FAQ alone.

1. General Information
In Age of Conan there are 6 Gathering skills. You can take all 6 gathering skills. The 6 Gathering skills currently available are. (source: www.community.ageofconan.com)

• Mining: This profession will allow you to gather resources such as copper, tin, iron and more. You can also find rare ones like aurichalcum and blue iron.
• Prospecting: This profession will allow you to gather resources such as silver, electrum, gold and more. You can also find rare ones like illustrium and platinum.
• Skinning: This profession will allow you to gather resources such as different types of leather, some of which are rare ones like the grained leather and the whorled leather.

• Woodcutting: This profession will allow you to gather resources such as ash, yew, oak and more. You can also find rare ones like soulwood and amberwood.

2. Accessing the Gathering Areas
To be able to gather recources, you first need to learn to gather them. The trainers that train you the 6 different kinds of gathering are located in 3 areas. These 3 areas are.
Lacheish Plains, Poitain and Purple Lotus Swamp.

These 3 areas are located outside Tortage, so you have to finish Tortage before you are able to train the gathering skills. I believe that the training is only available when you are level 20 or higher.

I’ll give a short walkthrough how to get from each Hub to the nearest Gathering area. Depending on the race you choose, you will start at a different Hub when you finish Tortage. The walkthrough includes some coordinates, you can find these coordinates when you open your map (located near the minimap or press M). The coordinates show below the map, the coordinates shown are the coordinates of the location of your mouse pointer on the map.

Conarch Village - Getting to Lacheish Plains
Your starting location is Conarch Village. The nearest gathering area is Lacheish Plains, to get there we first need to travel to Conall's Valley. Conarch Village is quite big, when you open your map, the entrance to Conall's Valley is located at" 448:428. Arrived at the location you see a wooden wall with wooden door, pressing the wooden door will give you access to Conan’s Valley.

Arrived in Conall's Valley, our next step is to travel to the Fields of the Dead. The entrance to this area is to the far east of the map. Keep following the road east, eventually you will need to go down a bit south as well, the exact entrance is located at coordinate: 1755:660. Pressing on the door will give you access to the Field of the Dead.

Arrived in the Fields of the Dead, our next step is to travel to Lacheish Plains. The entrance to this area is very close. Exact location: 115:225. It’s about 100-200 meter south, you should see it on your minimap. Walk to the NPC, and talk. Talking to this NPC gives you 3 options, the first 2 options are of importance. Option 1: Bring me to my guild city. If your guild has built a city, this will transport you immediately to the location your city is build, even if it is not in Lacheish Plains but for example in Purple Lotus Swamp. Option 2: Travel to Lacheish Plains. This is the option you want to choose if you would like to travel to Lacheish Plains.

Old Tarantia - Getting to Poitain
Your starting location is Old Tarantia. The nearest gathering area is Poitain, to get there we first need to travel to the Wild Lands of Zelata. Old Tarantia is quite big, when you open your map, you can see a road going out of the city to the southeast. Follow this road, all the way down until you reach a small house with a few NPC’s in front of it. The exact location is: 1095:396. One of the NPC’s has a tag below his name called: Wild Lands of Zelata. Talk to this NPC, follow the dialogue, and you will be transported to the Wild Lands of Zelata.

When you arrive in the Wild Lands of Zelata, Poitain is close. Open your map, follow the road that leads straight north. Our destination is the northwest corner of the map. When you arrive in the northwest corner, there should be 2 NPC’s near a ravine. The exact location is: (to be updated). One of the NPC’s has a tag below his name: Poitain City Guide. Talking to this NPC gives you 3 options, the first 2 options are of importance. Option 1: Bring me to my guild city. If your guild has built a city, this will transport you immediately to the location your city is build, even if it is not in Poitain but for example in Purple Lotus Swamp. Option 2: Travel to Poitain. This is the option you want to choose if you would like to travel to Poitain.

Khemi - Getting to Purple Lotus Swamp
Your starting point is Khemi. The nearest gathering area is Purple lotus, to get there we first need to travel to the Khopshef’s Province. Khemi is quite big, when you open your map, it is located on the other side of the Island. The location is: 788:1155. There should be a boat, and an NPC standing near. One of the NPC’s has a tag below his name called: Khopshef’s Province. Talk to this NPC, follow his dialogue, and you will be transported to Khopshef’s Province.

When you arrive in Khopshef’s Province, Purple Lotus Swamp is close. Open your map, follow the road that leads south. Our destination is 523:134. When you arrive at the location. There should be 2 NPC’s. One of the NPC’s has a tag below his name: Purple Lotus Swamp Guide. Talking to this NPC gives you 3 options, the first 2 options are of importance. Option 1: Bring me to my guild city. If your guild has built a city, this will transport you immediately to the location your city is build, even if it is not in Purple Lotus Swamp but for example in Potain. Option 2: Travel to Purple Lotus Swamp. This is the option you want to choose if you would like to travel to Purple Lotus Swamp.

3. Getting Started

Okay, you arrived in one of the three gathering areas. Each gathering area has a small town where all the gathering trainers are located. If you open your map you should see where it is, but I’ll paste the location to make it clear.

Lacheish Plains: Brandoc Village. Location: 1200:675
Poitain: Caenna Village. Location: 1277:1491
Purple Lotus Swamp: Nakaset Village. Location: 1125:1150

Each town has all the 6 trainers to train you the gathering skills. There location should be highlighted on your map with orange exclamation marks, if not, they are not hard to find. These trainers will be able to train you everything you need for the gathering skills. But there are some level boundaries.
The gathering skill is split up into 3 tiers.
Tier 1 Recources are available at level 20.
Tier 2 Recources are available at level 50.
Tier 3 Recources are available at level 70.

In the next chapters I will explain what resources belong to each tier. Note: If you train in Poitain, you can use the gathering skills all over Hyboria, it is not limited to Potain.

So, now you have picked up all the gathering skills, it’s time to start gathering! Each trainer should have given you a quest to gather 20 of each tier 1 recourse. So it’s time to start exploring. In the next chapter I will explain what the Tier 1 Gathering Resources are and how you gather them.

NOTE: Resources are found in all areas of the game. They are not limited to one of the three Gathering areas. Both Normal and Epic areas have resources.

5. Tier 1 Gathering Resources (level 20+)

• Mining: Copper Gathered from: Copper Node
• Prospecting: Silver Gathered from: Silver Node
• Skinning: Rough Leather Gathered from: Animals (level 20+)
• Stonecutting: Sandstone Gathered from: Sandstone Node
• Weaving: Cotton Gathered from: Cotton Shrubberies
• Woodcutting: Ash Gathered from: Ash Tree

These node’s or tree’s are highlighted when you hover your mouse above them. Node’s are quite big, and usually found near hills, on a slope, or on a hill. Tree’s and Cotton Shrubberies are usually found in the open areas, they are easily recognized because they have an animation: Trees drop leaves and Shrubberies sparkle.

These gathering objects have a durability of 100%. Each time you harvest one the durability will drop by 10%. So if you would find for example a Copper node with 100% durability, you would be able to harvest 10 copper from it.

The durability on the gathering objects will slowly replenish itself, so a copper node that is harvested to 0%, will slowly gain durability so it is to be harvested again.

Resources have fixed locations, so you can make a map with waypoints to save the location of the resources.

6. Tier 2 Gathering Resources (level 50+)

These gathering objects have a durability of 100%. Each time you harvest one the durability will drop by 10%. So if you would find for example a Iron node with 100% durability, you would be able to harvest 10 Iron from it.

The durability on the gathering objects will slowly replenish itself, so a iron node that is harvested to 0%, will slowly gain durability so it is to be harvested again.

8.Gathering the rare’s

When you finish the first quests the trainers give you, you will get a follow up quest that requires you to get one rare resource. Each Tier recourse holds its own rare resource. Note: By Rare, i mean a 1% drop chance, if not lower for some resources.
If you get to harvest a rare, the recource object will loose 20% durability instead of the normal 10% durability.
NOTE: If a recource has 11-19% durability, you are still able to harvest a rare recourse.

9. Current issues, bugs and other things

Current issues and bugs
- (bug)Resources do not seem to stack all the time.
- (bug)Resources do sometimes appear on the minimap. Though not all the time.
- (issue)The weaver and skinner trainers in Purple Lotus Swamp drop through the floor/walkway. They are below the buildings.
- (issue)Some abnormal low droprates count for the skinner resources, intended or not?
- (issue)The use of flax bushes is unkown, when you harvest them you dont actually receive something.

10. Waypoint Sharing

(this is a tricky thing, if you have problem do not hesistate to contact me)

You can save all your waypoints in an XML File and share them with other, I will post some XML files of each gathering area here. Save the XML Files into account folder, and then the folder xalled waypoints. The location of that folder depends on the OS your system has.
For Vista it's usually: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local
For XP it's usually: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\

So for example you would save it into(OS = XP): C:\Documents and Settings\myname\Local Settings\Application Data\Funcom\Conan\Prefs\myaccount\Waypoints

For more waypoints of different areas, and other tools concerning waypoint sharing, you should take a look at this page: http://waypoints.tman.be/
All the credits of this page go to Tman, big thanks to him.

NOTE: If you overwrite your own XML file, you will lose your own waypoints.
NOTE: For more information about this subject: see this topic: http://forums-eu.ageofconan.com/showthread.php?t=12908
NOTE: Some folders may be hidden: to make them visible: tools --> folder options --> view --> show hidden folders.
