Resource Maps

Jump to navigation Jump to search


"Found as loot on creatures and in chests, Resource Maps yield Lumber, Ore, Skins, and Fish. They must be deciphered in the same manner as with Treasure Maps, with a Cartographer. Their skill, coupled with the quality of Spyglass they use, will yield a map of varying degree of accuracy. Your individual Gathering skill (Lumberjacking, Mining, Fishing, Forensics) will determine how close you need to be to the actual gathering spot in order to find it. (Note: Fishing Resource maps will always be land-based, you will not need a boat)."
