crafting oak in heavenly heather

sorry it's been a while, i have been studying for finals!  they are finally over now, so back to real work!

 

so, after finishing elm, it was time to move on to oak.  the best place to harvest oak, if you can take on/avoid the treants, is the deceptively sleepy suburb of heather.

heather is located nw of new rachival, but it has it's own port in and out to brist, located on the main town portal.  it is a free port (without a loaded disk, of course) both ways.

heather is a player built town, so all the buildings there are subject to coming and going.  however, due to the abundance of harvestable resources, there will almost always be a wood, stone, tanning, cloth, and food prep workstation somewhere in the immediate port area.

porting into heather to get to the oak, you would turn northerly (to your right, for those like me directionally challenged).  a short run will bring you to the the main road thru the area and the southern edge of the oak field.  the oaks are spread out over a very large area to the west and east and north.

you know the harvesting routine by now, so i will spare you those details.  once you get a load of logs, you simply run back to one of the wws and make your processed resources (boards, timbers, and braces).

since we are getting up into the higher tiers and since heather is such a prime crafting location, it is heavily guarded by treants and wolves.  they are quite the nuisance, but the real danger to watch for is storm's shadow, a named boss who is important in several quests.  he is tough and nasty, even for high level crafters.  all these critters are easy to avoid, but not fun to deal with while crafting.

once you have your processing done, you can catch the awesome and unique town port (not many look like it!) to brist and onto your destination.

this short post does not do justice to the sheer awesomeness of heather for crafters.  we will be revisiting it for kenaf when i get around to the fabric construction!  hopefully by then you will be ingame to see how kewl beans in awesome sauch heather is for yourself!

moving on to maple next!  see you soon!

Those take me to the old days. I used to play Istaria about 5+ years ago. It was fun to craft in that game and I loved the ability of people able to make their own cities. And it wasn't the "get a blue print and poof", it took weeks, maybe months to build. The community was supportive, the guilds were helpfull, and the RP was excelent.
