Archeage: A Gathering Guide for Falcorth Plains and Villanelle
Archeage is an MMO game that I play with my husband whenever we find a little spare time. We enjoy the tongue-in-cheek inventiveness of the game and the little creative touches, but I'm not a game reviewer and I'm not here to review the game. I personally love to roam the countryside gathering and collecting things and as I roamed around different areas I began to write down where local resources could be found, resources like meats, metals, ground plants, and trees. I found the notes quite useful, and I hope you will too. This article covers the areas of Falcorth Plains and Villanelle.
Apple trees can are also found all over Falcorth Plains, with many of them lining the road between the Training Grounds and Graymist, and a grove deep in Reedpipe Dens. These trees provide apples when fruited and provide just two or three logs when cut down.
Birch trees are scattered throughout Falcorth Plains, particularly along the road from Training Grounds to Graymist. You can climb these trees and they provide eighteen logs when cut down, but they do not produce any fruit.
Cherry trees can be found scattered throughout Villanelle, with large concentrations to be found in the area of the Paddies and along the road to Wingfeather Valley. Cherry trees provide cherries when fruited and six logs when cut down.
Chestnuts, which yield chestnuts when fruited and six logs, also grow throughout Villanelle. There are fairly large groves that can be found south of the Paddies, between Bootsong Hill and Winebalm, and behind Winebalm.
Maple trees can be found throughout Villanelle, particularly in the Paddies and near the Silent Forest Checkpoint. These trees do not develop fruit, but they do provide fourteen logs when chopped down.
Gathering plants from the ground either increases your gathering or your farming proficiency, depending on which type of plant it is.
Carrots can be found all over Falcorth Plains among the rocks, although the greatest quantities are around Whisperwind and Halfmoon. This plant provides farming proficiency.
Clover can be found sporadically throughout Falcorth Plains. Gathering clover plants provides gathering proficiency.
Lily flowers can be found sporadically along the road in Villanelle and provide gathering proficiency.
Millet is occasionally found in the low-lying areas of Falcorth Plains, particularly near Wind's Promise. Millet provides gathering proficiency when collected.
Rice can be found in great abundance in the Paddies of Villanelle, and provide farming proficiency when harvested. They are, however, surrounded by level twenty-five (ish) crocodiles, skeletal merchants and porters, and skeletal horses that are fairly aggressive.
Metals and Meats
Iron deposits are fairly plentiful along the mountains of Falcorth Plains and large deposits of iron can be found in Bleakbreath cave, although the level nine mist skeletons that gather in this area are annoyingly aggressive. You can mine iron in this area for hours without pausing, assuming you have enough labor points, but if you don't wait around long enough to find out if a Fortuna vein pops up before going on to the next deposit you will miss out on a great deal of gold and silver as well as the occasional precious gem! I found no iron deposits anywhere in Villanelle, not along the mountains and not even in the caves at the end of Wingfeather Valley.
Flocks of geese can be found near the community center in Falcorth Plains as well as in the towns of Halfmoon, Graymist, and at the Eye of Day once you get past the Rat Tooth Tribe. Butchering geese provides about three to four units of meat, but if you feed them ground grain first you can harvest goose down. If the geese are still little yellow fuzzy things, it's generally advisable to let them grow as butchering them only provides one unit of meat and letting the little geese grow up only takes a few hours. There are generally two groups of geese in each of the towns.
That is the extent of the resources I been able to discover in Falcorth Plains and Villanelle, but I'm always glad to hear from anyone who has found any resources I haven't yet listed. Just let me know it the comments and I will verify it, do a little jig, then add it in! (I really like finding new things.)
The next article in this series will cover the areas of Mahadevi and Solis.
