Heads up you foraging fools!

Hey all! Just wanted to post a little something regarding some Alchemy supplies that are Foragable and needed. I don't know how many other Shamans are working on their beloved skill of Alchemy, but from lvl 200-300 there are a few items that are foragable and needed.. atleast I haven't seen them in the guild bank in a while.. and I thought that perhaps some of you foraging types might not be aware of what it is that you are picking up and the value of them to your fellow guildies!

So, here is a very short list of items to keep your eyes out for:

Autumn Crocus: Foragable in Ssraeshza Temple and drops off various
mobs in Sanctus Seru

Red Cups: Foragable in Lavaspinner's Lair, Stillmoon temple, Broodlands,
and Thundercrest Isles. Drops off a Granite Sentinel in Brood-

Draconic Essence: Foragable in Lavaspinner's Lair, Stillmoon temple,
Broodlands. Drops off various drakes in Thundercrest

Please if anyone else has any other suggestions of Alchemy supplies that are foragable and needed... please list them and the areas inwhich they drop. Many of our guildies take pride in helping out the guild with tradeskills, they just might not know what is what or what is needed.
Also, I encourage any other tradeskillers to post if there are certain items that they need that are foragable or drops that the guild can contribute to. I hate to even think about how many items i have destroyed or sold to vendors not know the value to other tradeskillers. Not everyone has the time to do research on all items that they get... so if we let them know... it will be to everyone's benifit!
Thank you all!

Autum Crocus also drops in CoD...

I think Nodding Blue Lily's ? Whatever it is used in Healing Potion X....Skratz finds tons of em but those are dropped in Thundercrest randomly on occassion. Not sure of any other locations but they are very useful.

I have been foraging some of these items and I will put them in the guild bank for you guys..I know for a fact I have some draconic essence and I have also been getting some nodding blue lillies.

Watch the GB :)

Also anyone that needs anything post it and if I can forage it its yours...I have been watching for coarse salt for Deverin and been giving him any I forage.

I was actually thinking of Blue Nightwort, sorry....they have the same graphic and similar names.

Not sure where to get a lot of that but I know it can be gotten as random drops in some DoN.

Carried me so far into 240ish range :)

You can also go slaughter mermaids in Kedge for the ink and skill up that way.
They don't like Baark very much in Kedge. :roll:

My shammy friend used the inks for his skillups. We got our in Siren's Grotto. Yes, pita zone... but the armors pieces that drop off the mobs there are actually pretty decent tribute. Most pieces are lore.. but by the time I have a complete set of armor (and my friend has 100 or 200 inks) my set of armor tributes for something like 15k -20k in tribute.

I specifically remember Leather Greaves of Civility tributing for 7500 alone.

Concur on the Inks. They are easy to get and that is where I Solo box for Tribute. 1 hour in SG and you can get 5-10 stacks of ink and 20K in tribute.

Inks, Red Cups, then Blue Nightwort are great for progression from 200s-300s.

I'm at the point where I can use Red Cups for more successes and skillups than Noddling Blues. I tried burning through a stack of lillies I had in bank saved up over time and failed horribly with no skillups(before my Alchemy AAs though!)

Keep on foraging all you lovely foragers :)
