Orichalcum & Ancient Tree spots...

03 November 2012 - 12:04 AM

Sharing means caring (or was it "caring means sharing"?)... I'm on Tarnished Coast, so it could be different for every server, but here's all the spots I've found since last update (they moved again).

In Malchor's Leap:
Orichalcum--
* East of Wreck of the Qashvian POI
* East of Saliah Bayt POI (x2, yes, two of them near each other)
* West of Saliah Bayt POI, near the skill challenge

Orrian Saplings--
* West of Shark's Tooth Isle POI (in the water... yes, a tree floating in the water)
* West of Valley of Lyss WP (I hate this spot, freaking Embers and Risen Farmers)
* Northeast of Saliah Bayt POI
* North of Plaza of Lights POI

In Cursed Shore:
Orichalcum--
* West of Seachange Tidepools POI
* Southeast of Wreck of the Golden Vanity POI (x2 down in the water)
* Northeast of Desmina's Hallows (in the long tunnel, there are two of them)

Orrian Saplings--
* West of R&D WP, near a statue
* South of Verdance Waypoint
* Northwest of Death's Anthem POI (the landed ghost ship with the skill challenge)
* East of Death's Anthem POI

If these aren't on your server, I apologize. I wouldn't be surprised if it's different on all servers.

Can't get into Mad King's Realm?

No gates anywhere, and people are complaining about it in chat. Is this a bug, or what? Has anyone been able to get into the labyrinth? How do you do it, now?

Farmed for 2 hours straight, got absolutely nothing.

Wow. All I needed was 2 large fangs to make a set of armor for an alt. I spent 2 hours killing raptors in the Straights of Devastation, and nothing would drop, period. I got sick of this and went to Mount Maelstrom, and started killing skelks there. Nothing. Nothing at all dropped. Just dirty rags and broken claws. WTF?!

The gear you're given when you first enter the Mists?

The very first pvp gear the game gives you... what should I do with this? I can't store it in the PvP locker, so should I just destroy it all?

Crafting is a nightmare, it would seem.

First of all, I would like to say... whoever said that all of the non-fun things from other MMOs were removed from Guild Wars 2... was full of crap. It's back with a vengeance as far as GW2 crafting is concerned. Last night I spent about 7 hours farming for enough tiny claws to make a full suit of level 20 armor (precision) for my warrior toon. Because there are 6 pieces of armor, and you need 8 tiny claws per piece = 48 tiny claws. Add to that 2 swords and a rifle and you need 72 tiny claws. Forget about the aquatic weapons, 72 tiny claws is about as far as I'm willing to go. But if I had gotten those too, that would have been 88 tiny claws.

But yes, I farmed 72 tiny claws last night, just for one toon's armor, for level 20. It will probably be the last time I do it. You start off needing 3 up until level 15, but it jumps to 8 after that. I can only imagine it getting worse when working with iron, and beyond.
