i decided to get the bright posts out of the way, so that at least i can be done with them totally that much....
the first harvest location takes place in sanctuary bay, which i covered with maple harvesting - and i refer you to that for such imfo as entering and leaving. this post will cover the bright essence harvesting done there.
interspersed with the maple and attendent treants in sanc bay is some bright essence. the two resources share the same ground coverage here.
bright wisps and residue look like all the others, differing only in their bright white appearance, and harvesting them is the same. i am still a low level to harvest brights, which only adds to my dislike and forces me to use potions of harvesting to have any great success, but the worst thing, for me, about harvesting in sanc bay is the treants. they force me to wear armour and carry opener and my shield (not to mention the inconvenience of using valable potion time to fight them and/or run away), losing me much needed cargo space.
there is, of course, the sanc bay plot with a high tier ews to use, as well as an in field one. the sanc bay one is, of course, safe from treants - another def plus over the ingame ews. you can cross the stone bridge to get to the plot if the road is covered with treants, as it often is.
so, despairing that i would ever get the bright work done ever, i was complaining in chat, as is my wont, and a wonderful subject advised me of an alternate ess work area - someplace i had never explored before......
but that is for the next post! ;-}p
