Where is the Amber?

I agree been farming up to 60 plants on the list for two months and only have one amber from a pack to show. At least the farm can be bought with gold and I'll try that but at this drop rate it will take two years to craft a spell which is not worth the trouble.

I have no idea what everyone is doing wrong. I garden king parsley and get an amber almost every elder harvest. So far i have crafted 3 spells and both games. keep trying, it is not that hard it just takes patience.

You are either doing something uniquely special or you should buy lottery tickets ASAP. I am currently gardening over 150 King Parsely and have elder-harvested several hundred times. My garden plots are all stocked with KP "likes". I find the drop rate of amber to be about 2-4%, which appears to be fairly typical. From my last 80 elder-harvests I got 1 amber.

My garens only consist of 24 KP at a time. I tend to keep dragonflies on them all the time along with a pixie, star chalice, and bubbling cauldron. Other than that i use enchanted soil instead of regular soil. Usually one amber drops from them on very rare occasions i might get 2.

Per plant or per garden? Your first post sounded like per plant.

If it's per garden that makes more sense. Some references suggest the amber drop rate from KP is much lower (worse) than it used to be. Currently with a drop rate of about 2 to 4 percent per plant, you need to elder harvest 500-600 plants to get 12 amber.

Well I guess all those seeds that isn't mentioned should be sold and not planted if you are wanting amber. I am cleaning out my seeds and looking at those suggested. Its a shame game limited the amber drop to just certain plants, now we can only plant certain plants to get it. In future i will check out the craft project, if it requires gardening for regents I will just not do. Plus I guess you have to wait until Elder before it even has possibility of dropping Amber, long wait for possibility. I still think Amber should be attainable elsewhere.

KI doing us dirty and if it keeps up i will drop the game and go to WoW EASIER to farm it and get what you after

you can only harvest them from plants. plus the best to get amber from white tiger lily but you need to get to elder to harvest it and get amber

I agree elvis is the way to go. Patience to get there, 50 elvis at a harvest. place in enchanted plots let them sit 4 days at elder before hatch. then harvest 1 to 3 per harvest but money and pet snacks to go and other regents to go sell. it can be done.

You don't HAVE to garden a Amber. It takes a while, and you might not get it.
In Keeper's Lore Pack there is a BIG chance you can get a amber.

Maybe 1 Day you will find a secret vendor who sells really rare reagents... Well its a surprise!

amber is really hard to get! i have harvested all of my 12 red bell pepper and i still have nothing can someone please help me
That's hilarious hahaha. I have probably harvested almost 70 (seventy) King Parsley at Elder and only got one Amber. I am not complaining. When you harvest at least 300 red bell peppers, ask for help. I am pleased with my drop chance. For everyone else out there patience into the gardening King Parsley it is a great choice, don't buy 30 seeds just buy 3 or 4. I did, and now I almost have 50 of them, they multiply quickly, great harvest chances!

I can finally answer this question. Where is the amber? Cronus has it. I have gotten 28 amber farming him over the last 4 days looking for gear. I will take down my parsley gardens now and never worry about amber again.

I have been gardening since it came out that we would have to garden for the coveted amber. It has drained my crowns, taken from training any pets and on top of that there has been no white tiger lily to show up period. Fortunately I have been able to pay for some crowns but barley, for those out there that do not have that blessing amber is a problem as it is a problem for those who can. I have played the Loremaster over 22 times and still did not learn any spells or get any seeds worth planting. How many has had this problem? KI there's challenge and then there is being ridiculous. Good luck to my fellow players and good night.
