Collectables are found either in treasure bags dropped by creatures you kill or from collectable nodes (e.g. bookcases, mushrooms) you find in the quest landscape.

Collectables come in sets of three, each item of a different rarity, desired by a particular collector. Collectables are also crucial elements of Cannith crafting recipes.

Creatures of a given type drop the same set every time. For example giant type creatures always drop talismans (like Amulet of the Lost Empire) throughout the game.

Collectable nodes[edit]

A collectable node is a quest feature where collectables may be dropped. It can take many forms, such as a pile of Rubble, an Adventurer's Pack, a Crude Altar, and more. The node is surrounded by floating sparkles until your character has collected from it.

Each node drops collectable sets of a related type. For example, mushrooms drop collectables from a set with an organic feel, such as a fungus or insect, but not books or documents. The sets dropped by a particular collectable device also depend upon the quest tier.

It is worth noting that, unlike chests, collectable nodes cannot ransack. A character may thus farm collectables from a single node indefinitely without penalty.


Each collectable set includes one common item, one uncommon item, and one rare item. For example, the religious icon set consists of String of Prayer Beads (common), Small Wooden Idol (uncommon), and Icon of Khyber (rare). The chance of each rarity being dropped is:

  • 75% common
  • 20% uncommon
  • 5% rare


Tier is based on effective level rather than base level. So, for example, if you were to run a level 5 quest on normal, you would get the tier 1 collectables; but if you ran it on hard, you would get the tier 2 collectables. Treasure Bags are unaffected by tier.

Collectable nodes drop collectable sets based on the level tier of the quest in which they are found.

  • Tier 1: Levels 1–5
  • Tier 2: Levels 6–10
  • Tier 3: Levels 11–15
  • Tier 4: Levels 16–20
  • Tier 5: Levels 21–25
  • Tier 6: Levels 26+


All Cannith Crafting recipes (except for Minimum Level shards and ammunition) use collectables. There are 113 Cannith Crafting collectables.

Any collectable can be found in an Adventurer's Pack or Rubble. Collectables of each type can be found can be additionally found in

There are also three types of special collectable available from certain collectable nodes, which do not appear in the below table:

Note that the numbers of several collectables appear to have been changed. Tier 4 lore collectables still have Cryptic Message, which is now classified as tier 3, as their common drop.[UnverifiedIcon tooltip.png"Tier 4 lore collectables still have Cryptic Message, which is now classified as tier 3, as their common drop." has not been verified in-game.
