EQ2: Harvesting with otheres

When you go harvesting ,You will never be the only one out there doing it.


It is true that some times you can git out there and make a round are two before you run across some one harvesting.  You just got to get over it and learn to harvest the best area’s with othere’s.

For the most part ,You find that most people out there know what the deal is ,and play nice. Then you have the one’s that would play nice if thay just knew what that was. The last of the people out there could not care less about the harvesting area or you.

The first thing to know is harvesting is like all othere parts of the game. You know that mob ,and loot stealing is bad. If you plan on staying on the sever and play with every one ,You would not do it. It’s the same when it comes to harvesting. If you see some one harvesting on a node ,You don’t run up to it and start harvesting off of it too. This is known as node stealing. So stay away from othere’s node’s and all will be well.

Now let me tell you about how the node’s work.  There are two of them. The old one’s ,and the new ones. In the old zones ,the ones that came out with the game are setup to work togethere. When you find a area in one of the old zones that has nodes ,You will find every thing there. Not just Bush ,and Tree. You will have everything root ,ore ,rock ,bush ,tree ,den’s. OK so no fish ,but that goes without saying. In the new area’s you will find that in the wood’s you find tree’s ,root’s and a bush or two. River beds you can find ore ,and rock ,Fish if there is water. Any place you find animals you can find Den’s. So why do I tell you of the two ,becouse knowing the old way will help you find more stuff that you need/want. In the old zones thing spawn all togethere as I was saying before. What this means to you is you need to pick up everything. If you are rare hunting. Say you are looking for steel in the TS ,If all you do is pick up the ore at some point you will run out. Say you know that root sell’s good so you pick up root as well as ore. The the same thing at some point you will run out. Why? It’s because thay are all part of the same spawn point. It kicks them out randomly. So if all you do is git one ,two ,or even three types of nodes all that will end up with after some time is the one’s you don’t need/want. Now if you still need to harvest for steel you must pick up a area full of trash. If you run off then you are leaving all that trash for some othere person to pick up just to git started looking for what thay need. To keep a area good ,and fresh pick it all up. You will find that what you are looking for will spawn more this way.

In the newer area’s what you see is what you git so do the same. don’t just pick up that one type of node. pick them all up to have a better chance to git what you want.
