As most players who often play in top level zones know, the Master Weaponsmith in Lion's Arch USED to sell everything she had for karma. This included all tiers of gathering tools and salvage kits. If you are someone who 1) wasn't interested in getting a legendary and 2) wasn't interested the exotic armors offered by the temple vendors in Orr, you have very little to spend your karma on, and the ability to buy things like gathering tools and salvage kits for them was a benefit.

This thread is for the gathering tools specifically. Perhaps someone else will make one for salvage kits (or I might make one later even). The idea is to share where to find these things for sale for karma.

Specifically, where to find Orichalcum Mining Picks for sale for Karma, because I already know where I can get the other two tools, and I'll share that right now:

The Orichalcum Logging Axe can be bought for karma from Tactician Almonia at the Penitent Camp in Cursed Shore.

The Orichalcum Harvesting Sickle can be bought for karma from Lightbringer Ives at the Caer Shadowfain Camp in Cursed Shore.

I am pretty sure I have checked every karma vendor in Cursed Shore, but cannot find the Orichalcum Mining Pick at any of them. I'm next going to check Malchor's Leap and Frostgorge Sound, but I'm not sure when. If anyone runs across them on any karma vendor anywhere, please post where you found it. It seems that if the other two are available, the mining pick should be, too.

Also feel free to post where you can find lower tier gathering tools for karma if you are interested in that. Maybe we can set up a full list eventually.

Didn't you post this yesterday? Is your intent to get these patched out with the next update as well?

The Orichalcum Mining pick are from a NPC that turns into a vendor after a Dynamic event ends. I'll be damned if I remember which zone. All i know is he was there only if the event was completed and he made his destination.

Well, that's at least more information than I had before. Anyone hot anything more on this?

@Psygasm. Obviously it's not my intention. My intention is to figure out where i can buy an Orichalcum Mining Pick for Karma. Do you really think they don't know about those? Or, if they don't know about them, they wouldn't find out fairly quickly? If they really don't want to allow this stuff to be sold for karma, being all hush, hush about it isn't going to stop them from removing them. It may postpone it for a while, but I doubt very long. The difference between the merchant they nerfed and these items is that merchant was in Lion's Arch, and had ALL of those things in one easy to find tab. It didn't require any effort at all to use that merchant. I'm not happy they nerfed it, but there's not a heck of a lot I can do about it, is there? What I can do it find alternatives, and that is precisely what this thread is for.

Lionguard Demolitionist Varvv at Southsun Cove will sell Orichalcum Mining Picks for 350 Karma upon completing his dynamic event. He is at Lion Point Waypoint, but when he is triggered, will be waiting at the mouth of Ember Passage. His event involves destroying karka eggs and a Veteran Karka Egglayer or something like that. At the event of the DE, you will get a chest, and Varvv turns into a karma merchant for a short time, selling those orichalcum mining picks I earlier mentioned.

Hope this helps.
