Thx for posting all. Im glad im not the only one that thinks this is a bad setup.

I have played alot of mmorpg's and this has got to be the worst setup for crafting ive ever seen. Even Ultima Online back in the day wasn't this clogged with farmers. If you remember mining at cove. You cant even realm jump effectivly. Seems like that only worked for 2 days and people caught on.

Instead of quests gaining crafting give it a skill level that you can gain, that way you dont have to make just things that need scrap iron and i can get rid of some of this ore i dont use for anything.

At least make this worth my while in the end. Most of the gear looks unsatisfing, correct me please. Im myth, someone find me 1 item that isnt outdone by something i can buy. O and then show me one that beats the best dropped item.

Speaking of which theres no site to go to with a complete list of items? That is a first.

I think im done venting. The game still rocks someone has to change this crafting stuff around for the better.


I, too, used to play Ultima. Crafting was used to balance the economy in the game somewhat, with the players being allowed to either sell their craft items to shopkeepers, or to other players.

The economy is not in balance with Wizard101. I don't believe there is anyway to keep myself interested in a game where I spend my evenings, searching for reagents, rather than fighting and cajoling with friends. Correct me if I am wrong. I really liked this game until I hit level 50 and there is nothing left to do but dumpster dive for reagents, or go to unicorn way and impress a newbie. That is unless I want to start all over with a new character, and I don't think I have the energy to do that. I do hope KI figures out a way to please the higher level player in this game.

My two cents.

Normally what I do is find some reagent spawns and "server hop". Basically I hop from server to server and "farm" the reagents.

I am having a hard time finding Black Pearls & Diamonds. This item are vry rare indeed. It seems as soon as you become a good crafter, the game really slows you down. I sometimes fine the Black Pearl in the "Tree of Life" quest in moo shu. Diamonds comes from ore but wow it very rare.

I disagree with ore in krok. I think you can find more in Dragonspyre. Not always on the actual streets but in the atheneum, necropolis, and academy.

if you are in dragonspyre and if you need ghostfire go to the atheneum and beside the crafting teacher is a black collosus you can buy ghost fire from him

I post this 1 day into this expansion, but im seeing its hard to find many reagents. Im on the kroc part of the reagent quests and can't find any scrolls, i found a few stone blocks, but it takes forever.

If anyone knows of good places for different reagents please post them here.

Mist wood - I went to mooshu, keep in mind they are still hard to find. It just seems like to many people are in Wizard City to find any reagents at all.

Stone Block - Kroc in the middle of hallways, not on the sides

Ore - Kroc again. Seems like the best spots are at the end of hallways where an instance/dungeon would be.

Deep mushroom - Mooshu. on the sides of roads

Catails - Mooshu. Near water

Black lotus - Mooshu. on the sides of roads

i only did this for about 2 hours but i can tell its going to take a LONG time to get thru all of the reagent badges. any help here would be great.


Buy it at the bazaar. That's what i did.

you buy black coal from reagent vendors.


You can buy Black Coal from the reagent vendor, I know the vendor where you first get your Crafting Table has 9999 of them. Hope this helps :)

I too had a hard time finding parchment for my reagent quest. In the beginning I barely found any! But as time went on, the farther I got into Krokotopia, the more parchment I seemed to find. So it may be discouraging at first but you will eventually come to spots that give lots of parchment. I'm sorry I can't give you any specific locations of spawning spots. :-(

The hardest reagent that I cannot seem to find right now is Scrap Iron. I need it for my Marleybone reagent quest and it seems to be nowhere! :-( I did happen to find two spawning spots but they take forever to pop back up. Can anyone tell me where a better spot to find scrap iron is? I would be really grateful!!

The best place to get black lotus is in the tree of life dungeon in mooshu. if you stay on the perfect realms, you can usually be the only person in the dungeon collecting reagents. Also, the best place for red mandrake is actually nightside in wc, one small area with about 4-5 respawn points.

If you want help the easy way?

Go to the bazaar and buy most reagents there - btw this won't work for scrap iron as scrap iron is never on sale in bazaar.

A good place to find scrap iron would be Counterweight West and East. What I do is just go inside, pick up the scrap irons inside, and exit. Repeat the whole process again until you get enough. :)

Reagent refresh rates, now that the Celestia grandmaster artisan level has been applied, really need to be considered anew. The quest to become a grandmaster artisan requires 100 stone blocks to be transmuted into 10 sunstones (or was is sandstones?). There were, of course, no stone blocks for sale at the bazaar. Anyway. after 30 minutes of running the hallways of krokotopia and poking around Dragonspyre, I have found: 0. We have more players than EVER and there are just NOT ENOUGH REAGENT places and refreshes to go around. Please understand that I thought people were just being whiney about black pearls and blood moss - I mastered where to find them and got the quests done in relatively short order. This new obstacle, I feel, is place where the consequences of implimenting the quest requirements were overlooked. Crafting is not the same as it was a year ago, so the number of drops and frequency of refresh should not be the same.

This is a true problem. I usually poke around in nightside (behind the waterfall in wc) for mandrakes, find stone blocks in Nidavellir, gh, (No, not the dungeon, the dungeon entrance area) Scrap iron, I have a problem with it. I can confirm it's best in mb, though I cannot pinpoint where Mist wood, deep mushrooms, ore, commonly found. In mist wood and ore you might be lucky and get their upper reagent; acorns and diamonds. I find lava lilies in dragonspyre, cat tails ANYWHERE with water, stone blocks pretty much any famous structure, especially krokosphinx. I find frost flowers in nidavellir with stone blocks, too.

You can buy black coal from any reagent vendor for 5 gold.

I find that Ore is VERY easy to find in Dragonspyre. But what about non-members? Where are they supposed to find reagents? I think that Unicorn Way is the best place to find Mistwood. The Haunted Cave is a good place for Ore. But you can always go to the Bazaar and buy the reagents you need! Thats what I do sometimes
