Forsakia Collecting Guide



Forsakia Collecting Guide by Nien86

To all collectors in Forsakia.
This guide will give you information on where to collect/gather herbs, wood, ore, leather and aquatic products. Further more, you’ll find selling price (at NPC’s), type of product and synthesis possibilities. The pink materials are rare ones, like cordyceps.
You can find a list of locations with found materials in the first section and the second section shows the details of the materials. If you’re interested in the rare materials, then go to the third section. You won’t find the rares in the second section anymore.
I know the lists given on the maps aren’t complete. I’ve added all the products that I know of you can also get. If you have any additional information/knowledge, please post a reply.

A small note, some of you may have noticed that sometimes you’ll receive a (rare) material for a certain quest. Sometimes you’re being told in advance about a certain reward, like brass or blue jade. But there are also times you’re doing a regular quest and get something extra, like a surprise. This happens every once in a while. You don’t know when it’s going to happen or in which quest. But the surprise could be a rare material you’ve been searching for a long time.
If you don’t want to wait for this, just start gathering at one of the locations below.

SECTION 1: Locations

I’d like to start with the standard collectable material of every type of gathering spot, so I don’t have to mention these again and again.

Herbs: Weeds.
Hunting ground: Torn leather.

SECTION 2: Materials

This section is not done by far, but it’s a start. I’ve only added the materials I know details of and the rare ones. Regarding my comments on synthesis, I’ve based them on the fact if you can synthesize them using only one material. For example, synthesizing blue jade and blue jade can get you a higher level blue jade, but you can’t synthesize sea grass and sea grass.

Fishing pond:
Blue jade – 1 Tael, for creating accessories, synthesis –> Higher level
Sea grass – 5 Tael, no particular use, no synthesis
River snail – 15 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis
River clam – 25 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis
Barbeque shrimp – 40 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis
Cross needles – 55 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis
Red-tip scale – 70 Tael, type of aquatic product,
Stripe bass – 85 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis
Yellow eel –
Snakehead fish –
Anchovy – 100 Tael, type of aquatic product, no synthesis

Herbs:
Weeds – 5 Tael, no particular use, no synthesis
Kalmegh – 15 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Scutellaria – 25 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Malva nuts – 40 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Callicarpa grass – 55 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Thyme – 70 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Magnolia vine – 85 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis
Emilia sonchifolia –
Salvia –
Tribulus terrestris – 100 Tael, type of herb,
Cinnabar fruit – 240 Tael, type of herb, no synthesis

Hunting ground:
Rough leather – 1 Tael, for crafting armor, synthesis –> Higher level
Torn leather – 5 Tael, no particular use, synthesis –> Rough leather, linen gown
White rabbit skin – 15 Tael, type of leather, no synthesis
Squirrel skin – 25 Tael, type of leather, no synthesis
Wolf’s skin – 40 Tael, type of leather, synthesis –> Medium leather
Snake leather – 55 Tael, type of leather, no synthesis
Raccoon skin – 70 Tael, type of leather, no synthesis
Young pig leather – 85 Tael, type of leather, no synthesis
Cattle leather – 100 Tael, type of leather,
Lamb skin –

Logs:
Shortwood – 5 Tael, no particular use, no synthesis
Bamboo – 15 Tael, type of wood, no synthesis
Parasol tree wood – 25 Tael, type of wood, no synthesis

What is number 10? Can probably be found at Heaven touching top

Hematite – 1 Tael,
Black gold ore –
Green rhodochrosite –
Meteor shard –
Cat’s eye stone – 240 Tael, type of ore, no synthesis

SECTION 3: Rares

In game, there are 14 (official) rare materials, of which 7 types of wood and 7 herbs. It’s not easy to collect them, that’s why they are called rare. So it might take a few tries before you find one. Patience is the keyword.
You can trade every rare material at an NPC for 1000 Tael. However, you wouldn’t want to do that, because you’ll be using it yourself for a quest, to craft something else, or to sell it to other players (then it’s worth at least 10 times as much Tael compared to selling it at an NPC). As I said, you can also use rare materials during synthesis. If you want to know what you can craft, I recommend Tranouk’s crafting guide.
