I am doing the crimson book shelf crafting quest and i need to find the reagent Nightshade - where is the best place to find it. I have looked all over and cant really find any at all... please help!
You want to look for "Deep Mushrooms." Nightshade is a rare drop that will sometimes turn up within a clump of mushrooms. Trying to find all 24 nightshade will take forever, however. So your best strategy is to try to gather up around 360 Deep Mushrooms and transmute them into the nightshade. The transmute nightshade crafting card is available from the Krok crafter in Krokotopia, for about 200 gold.
The best places to find mushrooms are Krokotopia, Mooshu, and Dragonspyre.
