The secret to collecting rare reagents is not telling others where you find rare reagents! If you tell everyone the best spot then it will be farmed so much that nobody can get any!

eh, just go in and out of the counterweights.

since they're dungeons, the instance you load is yours, no one's going to get in there and take the reagents.

go back out the door then go in again to load a new instance.

you will find mistwood and scrap iron on the first floor.

The counterweights i can confirm works. there are times when you will see mist wood however, most of the time it is the iron. enter the first side grab and exit. place a marker and run over to the other side and enter to grab more iron. Once you exit the 2nd counterweight, teleport back to your marker and enter. Rince and repeat until you have enough iron.

Also, in between the 2 counterweights, there is an area by the fountains that have cat tails that you can pick up if on the way.

if it takes you an hour a half to get 37 pieces how is that good? if you go to NEWGATE PRISON and walk between the 2 bossed MUGSY and the clock tower each realm, it will take you literarly 20 minutes and maybe 8 realms at most to get the 40 scrap iron. The likely hood is you woll end up with half over what you need.

Are you kidding! The easiest way is to got to chelsea court by the clock with the sunbirds, then walk around looking for iron. If you dont get any, then switch the realm! it also helps to get up and press x multiple times (Itried this myself! it works!). In about ten minutes, you collect sixteen scrap irons!

i am not kidding when i say that this is the best way. go to chealsea court, and take the first right. all you do is look around the whole area after the right. then go to where you turned, and back so the minute is up. in about an hour and a half i went from 16 scrap iron to 41 scrap iron.

PLEASE NOTE that i did not figure this out, and to give all credit to steven mistwielder, level 50 balance wizard. please do not give me credit. if you see steven mistwielder, just say thanks and that chris sent you.

Does this really work?

Yes it does.
I have crafted lvl 58 gear, Watchtower Hall, and well on my way to Celestial Observatory.
Take this tip and use it. Pass it on

OH MY GOSH! It really works! But I found an idea, instead of walking all the way back to where you turned, wait a minute, and then change realms. :D I cant believe how well that works! Thank you so much!! :P

I tried the Chelsey Court idea. Either you're wrong, or I didn't do it right.

I did the Counter Weights and it worked perfectly. I got tons of scrap iron. I didn't switch between East and West or change realms. I just went into the East one over and over and got a lot of scrap iron. Thanks!
