Materials Farmed in Open World

If you are going to use the butchering, foraging, fishing and mining runes, you can buy some cheap shoulders off the AH and use a rune on each one, then swap between them depending on what you are hunting for at the time.
The recipes for these runes can be bought from the planar crafting vendor ‘R23-JK’ in Alittu at /setwaypoint 4030 6360

Scoria Fish Livers

2780 for one set
16,680 for all 6 sets

Scoria fish can be fished up from the lava at —  /setwaypoint 3181 5635  — in Ashenfell.. You only need fishing skill at 410 to fish here.

The drop rate of Scoria fish is low, about half your casts will be grey trash (sellable, not required for anything)

Thankfully, skeleton dude in Toks reception can sell you 2 different kinds of scoria fish lures..

Scoria Lure

The scoria fish lure is available for 300 Tok tokens each.

This lure will guarantee you loot Scoria fish from every catch for 20 mins (its actually slightly longer than 20 mins due to PA buffs)

You can usually get 50-70 fish out of one lure – you can use the lure on any level fishing pole – however your fishing skill does need to be at 525 to use the lure.

Super Scoria Lure

The Super scoria fish lure is available for 3000 Tok tokens each.

When you fish with this Lure you will get a bunch of Scoria fish from each cast instead of singular fish.

You should get between 50-70 ‘bunches’ per lure.

Each bunch has 7 to 15 Scoria fish inside

Although the cost of Tok tokens per fish is roughly the same, the Scoria Super Lure is far superior when it comes to time spent fishing!
Because they cost Tok tokens, it is better to buy these lures on your alts and then send them to your main.. If you have been doing the Tok chest weekly on all your alts then you should have a good stash of Tok tokens to buy these lures.

Once you have the fish in your bags, you will need to gut them for their livers, just right click them.. About 1 in 20 fish will give you a grey ‘ruined fish liver’, just throw those away and keep the blue ‘scoria fish liver’

gutting 5000 fish will give you a pretty cheevo.. ‘what smell?’

Bolidium Ore

1220 for one set
7320 for all 6 sets

Bolidium ore is the high level rock in all Prophecy of Ahnket zones (Scatherran, Xarth, Gedlo, Ashenfell & VP) — The lower level rock is called Atramentium.

Any player with Mining skill (yes even level 1!) will be able to mine Bolidium, however you will get only one ore per mine at lower levels of mining.
You get 2 ore per mine at high levels of mining (500+)

You can use a mining rune to get an extra ore per mine, so either 2 ores at low level, or 3 at high level.

Bolidium ore is a VERY common drop from minions too, so keep spamming your minion sender!

Of course you can always buy the extras you need from the Auction House.. or maybe you have generous friends 🙂

The most important thing to remember, is you need the ORE not the BARS. Ore that has been crafted into bars is no good for toks.

Dream Ribbons

1080 for one set
6480 for all 6 sets

Dream ribbons are created by a Dreamweaver by breaking down artifacts.

for ease of storage 99 dream ribbons can be right clicked to create 1 bolt..

Fibers

30 of each type
180 total

Fibers drop when foraging in any of the Prophecy of Ahnket zones. They will all drop randomly from both Xarthian Tendrils and Faecap Mushrooms.

These are generally very cheap to buy in the auction house as people who are not farming for toks still pick them up and try to sell them on. If you find none in the auction house, try asking your guildies or friends, most peeps have some in their banks!

There are 6 types of Fibers

Abrasive fiber – earth
Ghostly fiber – death
Effervescent fiber – water
Tangling fiber – life
Ember fiber – fire
Filmy fiber – air

You will need 30 of each type.

A foraging rune may increase your drop rate for the fibers.

Skins

16 of each type
96 total

There are 6 different skins, one for each planar type..

Searing skin – fire
Ethereal skin – death
Flowing skin – water
Gravel skin – earth
Blooming skin – life
Gossamer skin – air

These drop from major rifts and also from crafting rifts.

The fire skin will drop from fire rifts, the death from death rifts and so on.

They are a random drop from rifts, you may get 3 in a row, or close 10 rifts without seeing any, just keep farming!

Any major rift in SP zones will do.. including those found in Scatherran Forest that are much easier than the ones in Ashenfell

These are often in the auction house for decent prices.

Hides

16 of each type
96 total

There are 6 different hides, one for each planar type..

 

Mossy Wool – life — Mosshide — found in Scatherran Forest – at /setwaypoint 4252 6240
Moist Lichen – water — Bilebelcher — found in Scatherran Forest – at /setwaypoint 5275 5875
Molten Hair – fire — Flamehoof — found in Ashenfell – at /setwaypoint 3301 4890
Gritty Cotton – earth — Doomseed — found in Xarth Mire – at /setwaypoint 4841 3611
Ectoplasmic Wool – death — Taranis Apparition — found in Gedlo Badlands – at /setwaypoint 3864 7064
Featherlite Fur – air — Rocky — found in Gedlo Badlands – at /setwaypoint 1906 6653

These are the hardest to farm – All explained in detail below!

At each location there is a ‘normal’ mob, the same as other mobs around it. when you kill the normal mob after a while it will respawn, around 1 in 10 respawns will be the ‘rare’ mob. When you kill the rare mob you will be able to butcher it for your special hides. 

You will need to have any level butchering skill on your char to be able to butcher the mob. If your skill is below 525 then you will only get one hide, at 525 you will get 2 hides per butcher.

A butchering rune will increase your loot by one skin per butcher.. so at high level you will get 3 hides per butcher.

note the ‘original’ spelling on the recipe when it was first released!

You will notice these mobs have a LOT of health, they are slow to kill but dont do too much damage.

The best way to farm these, is to go to the locations, kill whichever mob you find there, then switch shard and keep killing the same mob on every shard, by the time you get back to the first shard the normal mob should have respawned. you will get a ‘rare’ mob every few shard rotations.. assuming luck is on your side 🙂

You can use a target macro to quickly check each location..
/target mosshide
/target bilebelcher
/target flamehoof
/target doomseed
/target taranis apparition
/target rocky

Mossy Wool - Life

Mosshide — Found in Scatherran Forest
/setwaypoint 4252 6240

This one is very easy, if you stand to the left of the rock, you only need to kill the one special mob and wont agro anything else.

Moist Lichen - Water

Bilebelcher — found in Scatherran Forest
/setwaypoint 5275 5875

This one is easy enough, just kill the river leafling that’s stood on the spot. Occasionally there will be a rift at this location, its best to close it so it doesn’t kill the rare mob for you!

Molten Hair - Fire

Flamehoof — found in Ashenfell
/setwaypoint 3301 4890

Kill the fire stallion at this spot to make Flamehoof spawn

Gritty Cotton - Earth

Doomseed — found in Xarth Mire
/setwaypoint 4841 3611

If you stand up the bank from the river then you only need to kill the one ravenous bloom and wont agro anything else.

Ectoplasmic Wool - Death

Taranis Apparition — found in Gedlo Badlands
/setwaypoint 3864 7064

Kill all the hounds in the area.
The apparition is see through, like its stealthed, you may want to make a /tar macro for it in case it has wandered off a bit and you cant see it properly.

Featherlite Fur - Air

Rocky — found in Gedlo Badlands
/setwaypoint 1906 6653

Stand up near the graveyard and kill the badlands squirrel, you wont agro any other mobs

All of these materials are bound to account, however, you need the full notoriety with Dead Simon in order to buy them, so its best to stock up the tok tokens with just your main char.

You can use any Tok tokens on alts for buying Scoria fish lures and buying the cape (note the mount is bind on pickup)
