Scavenging

Scavenging is one of the 4 Gathering tradeskills in WAR. Scavenging allows you to scavenge human like mobs. As Mark Jacobs said, if its smart enough to wear clothes its probably scavenge able. The items you get from Scavenging are used in all 3 tradeskills. Scavenging is the tradeskill you want if you’re looking for money or if you plan on grabbing Talisman Making.

As a Scavenger your main source of income will be from… Well… Everything. With scavenging you will find Water, Dust, Seeds, Watering cans and more. Scavenging is good with ether Crafting profession and if all you want is money, you just can’t go wrong. As with Butchering the level of mob depends on what level loot you will get when Scavenging them.

Here is a quick reference table for you.

1-10 Mobs 1-50 Loot
11-20 Mobs 51-100 Loot
21-30 Mobs 101-150 Loot
31-40 Mobs 151-200 Loot

  • Leveling up the gathering skill, Scavenging, happens through the killing and looting of humanoid type NPCs in Return of Reckoning. When you kill the humanoid NPC, right click on the corpse or use your loot hotkey to first obtain whatever items and coin dropped from the mob, then right click or loot hotkey again to obtain a scavenging material from the corpse.
  • Once a material is successfully looted, the corpse will disappear.
  • The level of material that drops is first checked by your skill level, then by NPC level. It’s a simple calculation: if you want material of a specific level, divide the material level by 5. This represents the minimum level mob that will drop the material. You can kill mobs within the range of four levels above that. For example, if I want to obtain level 50 materials, I need to farm level 10-14 mobs. 50 divided by 5 equals 10, plus 4 is 14. Level 15 mobs will drop level 75 materials.
  • You can only receive materials within the range of your skill level. For example, if you are killing level 20 mobs to get level 100 materials to drop, but your skill level in Scavenging is 92, you will only receive level 75 materials and lower.
  • Each humanoid corpse you loot will have a chance to level your Scavenging skill by one point, as long as it is within or above your skill level. For example, say my Scavenging is currently level 75, and I’m killing level 20-24 mobs (which drop level 100 materials). I’ll have a very good chance to level my Scavenging up through level 100. If I’m killing level 15-19 mobs (which drop level 75 materials), I’ll have a normal chance to level my Scavenging through 75 (I might see a slow-down somewhere around 90 because the chance to level is shrinking as I continue leveling up); and if I’m killing level 10-14 mobs (which drop level 50 materials), I’ll have a very low, or zero, chance to increase my Scavenging past 75.
  • Only Champion NPCs and above will drop purple fragments. Normal NPCs will drop Common (white), Uncommon (green), and Rare (blue) fragments.
  • The maximum level for all gathering and trade skills is 200.
  • Any class can Scavenge, but if you’re going to have one character with each gathering skill (Butchering, Cultivating, Salvaging), it’s good to consider learning Scavenging on a class that can farm Champions easily. Scavenging can be an effective gathering skill for classes with reasonable single target damage and high sustain or kite potential.
