If it is a collect/harvested material, and you find either a Rich Ore Vein, or a high density / occurance of the material in a certain area, attaching a small image in place of the monster type / monster level section would be nice.  Something with just a MSPaint circle drawn around the area that has the material.

Just farmed a bunch of "Pile of Shimmering Dust" in southern Gendarran Fields, at the Lawen Ponds. Drops from Risen mobs there, lvl 28/29, area lvl is 27. There are two events there as well, which will spawn bunches of risen.

I've only been to Queensdale and Kessex Hills at this point.  I'm sadly approaching level 28 and still am having a hard time rounding up some of these crafting pieces.  Right now, the bone shards are frustrating me.  I managed to get 3 there, but I'm sure they were just random bag loots, which isn't terribly reliable.  There has to be something that drops them.

I'd go try those caves, but I don't know where 'Diessa' is, and I don't really see it on my mostly covered map. :(

There are 2x Rich Copper Veins in the Norn starting area - Wayfarer Foothills (I think that's what it's called. At work atm.)
One is easily accessible, and the other one requires some jumping.

I'll get a picture when I get home.

Vials of weak blood -- Queens dale/ Altar Brook Vale -- Any type of scale -- level 8

I like this place because it also spawns drakes which can drop small scales

Small Venom Sac -- Brisban Wildlands / ??? -- Breeze Rider -- 21 -- [???]

The area is just West of the "Ulta Metamagical's Waypoint". I'm not sure what it's called, however, and I'm not home so I can't check it.

They do indeed drop there (drakes drop tiny scales, not small).  However, upstream there is a high density of skales in the pond just southwest of Queensdale on the map.  It also has baraccudas in the pond which drop tiny scales.  Downside of this is you are fighting in the water.

It is east, there are about 8 Wind Riders and 1 Veteran Wind Rider.  In about 5-7min of them I got 3 venom sacks

Spent about 10-15min here, got 5 fangs and I got a venom sack on my final kill there, unsure if my luck was bad or if they are rare at this location but they do indeed drop venom sacks, as well as fangs.

I've found a few good spots to farm weak blood,thin blood and venom sacs.

Weak blood --> Move along the coast of the Western Divinity Dam towards the bridge connecting the Village of Shaemoor and the Shaemoor Fields. There are a ton of skales which are very easy to kill and also spawn quickly.
Thin blood --> The small island in the middle of the map, below the Manefire Hills and above the Viathan's Arm. It has quite a few skales which are again, easy to kill and drop thin blood.
As for small venom sacs, you'll want to kill the fireflies in the Overlord's Camp in Kessex Hills.

tier2 blood: Reef Skelk; Lake Gendarr, in Gendarran Fields region

Skale = blood
Troll = blood
Mino = blood
Griffon = claw
Raptor = claw
Drake = claw
Lynx = claw
Moa = claw
Rock Dog = claw
Warg = claw, fang
Hyena = fang
Arctodus = fang
Icebrood Wolf = fang
Grub = fang, venom
Fireflies = venom
Mosquito = venom
Barracuda = scales
Krait = scales
Skritt = bone
Jotun = bone, totem
Grawl = bone, totem
Inquest = totem
Sons of Svanir = totem

The arena DE in the northeastern corner of Gendarran Fields (the place you enter from Snowden Drifts or what the second norn zone is called) is perfect for farming Tier 2 fine materials. In the DE you fight a lot of different animals that come out of cages in waves (choke point), just load up on AoEs and tag as many as possible. Since they are different kinds of animals they drop different every fine materials except dust, bones and totems. Claws or fangs seem to drop the most.
The DE has a respawn timer of 10 minutes, so you can go south to farm some ettins / trolls / spiders in the caves there, there also often DEs involving dredge down there. Especially the one where the dredge spawn endlessly out of a sonic tank is noteworthy, gives you a ton of miner bags.

I've found the Sons of Svanir near Highpeaks in Frostgorge Sound to be a good place for farming scraps of silk.They drop the scraps, as well as Icy Bags, sometimes containing more silk, Salvagable cloth items which can be turned into silk and they can also drop Intricate Totems.
There are also some Mithril spots and trees giving Elder Wood Logs in the area.

Some on tier 5 & 6, since most mobs that drop tier 6 on rare occasions drop tier 5 as well.:

Tier 5&6 bones & dust: - drop everywhere in orr, and temple quest chains seem to have the most mobs by far. that and the quests to clear the patch to the dungeon.
Tier 5 & 6 totems: - Inquest mobs in the orr region, mostly found in malchor's leap underwater. literally seem to be the only ones that directly drop tier 6 versions.
Tier 5 & 6 Venom Sacs: Oozes in Cursed shore outside Meddler's waypoint, or risen spiders found all over the place. (haven't found a good dense spot for spiders yet)
Tier 5 large claw: Temple of grenth quest, the boss spawns lots of mini ice elementals that drop them very often.

Tier 1 Rawhide Leather Sections - The Drakes just outside of The Grove (just north of the Village of Astorea area).

Really need a place to farm course leather if anyone knows. I have been running around for a good 2 hours trying to find a good place. :(

So... in general, please put them in the following format in the future please... it makes it MUCH easier to add and a much quicker / easier read to just skim through and know the important details (location, mob type, mob level, level you will be downscaled to).

Material -- Zone / Area -- Monster Type -- Monster Level -- [Area Level]

The point of this was more to farm specific things should you need say... 48 totems to make yourself a set of rejuv armor or whatever, so I've left out the generic 'farm here for bags which open up as T3 crafting materials' for now.


The total of what was added:


Rawhide Leather Sections -- Caledon Forest / Village of Astorea (north river) -- Drakes -- XX -- [YY]
Vial of Weak Blood -- Queensdale / Western Divinity Dam -- Skales -- XX -- [YY]

Vial of Thin Blood -- Kessex Hills / Manfire Hills -- Skales -- XX -- [YY]
...........................  -- Gendarran Fields / Lake Gendarr -- Skales -- XX -- [YY]
Small Venom Sacks -- Kessex Hills / Overlord's Greatcamp -- Fireflies -- XX -- [YY]
............................. -- Gendarran Fields / Cornucopian Fields (east) -- Wurm Hatchlings -- XX -- [YY]
............................. -- Gendarran Fields / Vigilant Hills -- Fireflies -- XX -- [YY]
............................. -- Gendarran Fields / Overlook Caverns (vista) -- 28 -- [YY]
Small Scale -- Gendarran Fields / Lake Gendarr -- Barracuda -- XX -- [YY]

Totems -- Dredgehaunt Cliffs / Panther Snarl Shrine (near vista) -- Sons of Svanir -- XX -- [YY]
Vial of Blood -- Blazeridge Steppes / Twin Sisters Crossing (river to west) -- Skales -- XX -- [YY]
................... -- Fields of Ruin / Tanglerot Hills -- Harpies -- XX -- [YY]
................... -- Harathi Hinterlands / Arca Lake -- Harpies -- XX -- [YY]

Vial of Thick Blood -- Iron Marches / Ebbing Heart Run -- Skales -- 59 -- [YY]

Silk Scraps -- Frostgorge Sound / Highpeaks -- Sons of Svanir -- XX -- [YY]


If anyone wants to help out and let me know the levels of the monsters and the level you get downscaled to so I can fill in the XX and YYs lemme know.  Sadly spending 5 silver to teleport there and back just to check isn't viable for me currently, stupid high level costs and lack of an economy.
