This page is a work in progress which aims at listing the source of all collectables in the game. Feel free to contribute by adding your own finds.

Overview

Collectables are found either in "Treasure Bags" dropped by creatures you kill, or from the various "collectable nodes" (e.g. Bookcases, Mushrooms) you find in the quest landscape.

Collectables come in "sets" of three that are desired by the same collector; Common, Uncommon and Rare. For example the religious icon set consists of "String of Prayer Beads", "Small Wooden Idol", and "Icon of Khyber". Items that require a turn in of 3 are "Common", a turn in of 2 are "Uncommon", and a turn in of 1 are "Rare". You can refer back to the collectables page to find the list of the number required of each type and thus the rarity of any particular item.

Each collectable node or enemy creature type has a number of collectable sets that it can drop. Enemy creatures of a given type usually drop from the same set every time. For example giant type creatures always drop talismans (like Amulet of the Lost Empire) throughout the game. Collectable nodes drop from a choice of up to ten different sets. For example expect Mushrooms to drop collectables from a set with an organic feel, such as a fungus or insect, but not books or documents.

In addition collectable nodes have a level. A Mushroom in a low level dungeon is likely to drop a Sweet Whitecap from tier one, but not a Ruddy Fungus from tier four. You can't tell what level a collectable node is by looking at it. You have to observe what collectables it drops.

Difficulty setting for adventures doesn't matter; you appear to have the same chance of a rare on casual play as anything else.

Common drops are roughly 2/3 likely, uncommon drops roughly 1/4, rares are around 1/10 to 1/20.

Creature Drops

Creatures seem to drop the same type regardless of their level. You receive the same Prayer Beads from level 1 and level 14 troglodytes for instance. They have to be of the correct type though as seen by examining them. The troglodytes in The Shroud are not the subclass reptile, so do not drop the collectables.

Treasure Bags dropped by creatures can be looted by every member of the party, but will seemingly "disappear" for each individual character when "picked up".

Collectable Node Types

Piles of Rubble and Adventurer's Packs can drop any of the collectables from within the tier corresponding to their level.

  • Adventurer's Pack (can drop anything)
  • Alchemy Table
  • Bookshelf
  • Cabinet
  • Crude Altar
  • Fungus
  • Mold (looks like fungus but with red spots)
  • Moss (uses same image as fungus)
  • Mushroom (two different images)
  • Rubble (can drop anything)

Also note that, some of these objects can only be searched by one person per instance.

Collectable Tiers

Note: the idea of tiers of collectables is still a theory

Each collectable set belongs to a tier. An Adventurer's Pack of level 1 will drop any collectable from within tier 1 but never drop anything from another tier. A dungeon might have collectable nodes of different levels within it, but as a rough guideline, the higher the dungeon level, the higher the collectable nodes' levels. For example the most sought after collectable is perhaps Lightning-Split Soarwood. It is in tier 3. A collectable node that drops anything from tier 1 or 2 will never drop soarwood. On the other hand an Adventurer's Pack that you see dropping something else from tier 3, will eventually drop soarwood.

(1) Tier One consists of the four collectable sets with collectors in the Harbor.
(2) Tier Two consists of the seven collectable sets with collectors in the Marketplace except for the Morbid Curios set (Funerary Token, Mark of the Keeper, Necromantic Gem).
(3) Tier Three consists of ten of the collectable sets with collectors in the various four enclaves. Those ten sets are: Apparatus, Document (Cryptic Message), Lyric, Beetle, Fungus (Sour Darkcap), Talisman, Medicinal Spore, Intelligence, Omen and Soarwood.
(4) Tier Four consists of (at least) four of the collectable sets with collectors in the various four enclaves. They are Ritual Paraphernalia, the Fungus set with Ruddy Fungus, Text and Drow Artifact. It also includes the two sets in the Lordsmarch Plaza.
Three sets only drop from enemy kills: Morbid Curios (from undead mobs), Elemental Essence (only from elemental mobs?), Infernal Essence (only from evil outsider mobs?).

That leaves three sets: the Herb set (e.g. Lily Petals), the Necropolis set and the Red Fens set.
