I've used expert salvage on over 40 Charr Hides; I've never seen Fur. Am I just unlucky? (probably so: I've only had three lockpicks that worked more than once on cheap chests) Or, are Charr Hides no longer dropping Fur? Tennessee Ernie Ford 06:43, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
I'm assuming the 25 means 1 Hide 25 times, I've edited your entry based on that assumption. -- User Gordon Ecker sig.png Gordon Ecker (talk) 06:49, 11 May 2009 (UTC)
Sure. I recently transported 75 more charr hides from pre to post, of which only 9 expert salv'd to Fur. Tennessee Ernie Ford 15:08, 11 May 2009 (UTC)


Should something be mentioned that this is the only salvage item that can be traded to collectors? 11:30, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

isn't it a bit "stupid" to list all charr if this item drops of all charr so one link to charr would sufice77.249.222.235 12:37, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

wtf yeah that is stupid--Justice 06:28, 3 February 2009 (UTC)
This has been resolved. Tennessee Ernie Ford 06:43, 25 February 2009 (UTC) we do that?--Justice 19:57, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Dunno, I only strike out my own. --Arduinna talk 20:03, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
I've undone the strike outs (and amended my text accordingly). I didn't realize that this was against policy or custom. I apologize. Tennessee Ernie Ford 02:47, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
You are allowed to strike out comments if it violates NPA etc. 03:36, 25 March 2009 (UTC)
start the nolani academy mission again and again in nm and let all the char enter through the gate, you get a lot of hides by just killing low level chars solo 07:36, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

You don't need to exp salvage those, just give them to collectors,lol115.64.157.4 07:38, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Farming Talk[edit]

I just finished Special Ops: Dragon's Gullet (100 Char) with a party of 5 (heroes/hench) and got 1 Hide. 08:58, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Probably because only the low level char drop them; and you would have had a team.( drop stealing ) --File:User Chieftain Alex Chieftain Signature.pngChieftain Alex 07:56, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
Just solo the charr outside Piken Square. User DrogoBoffin sig icon.png DrogoBoffin 07:58, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

In my opinion the hides can be farmed better in the Nolani Academy mission. When you enter the mission, just pull the lever and about 30 charr come running in.

  • This works well: my first nm solo run yielded 3 charr hides in the first wave. Mr Perfidy 01:48, 13 March 2012 (UTC)


I feel we should remove the information about Nicholas from the anomaly note. Nicholas collects all kinds of stuff and the fact that he once collected Charr Hides as well doesn't make it an anomaly. If noone protests I'm gonna do the change. Manassas Ritualist-tango-icon-20.png 12:56, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

In my opinion, it's odd whenever NPCs trade for stackable salvage items; very few of these drops have collectors of any sort. Also, as far as I can tell, Chides [sic] are the only stackable salvage item that Nick has requested. Therefore, as long as we consider Nick to be a collector, I believe that his name belongs in this note.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 00:51, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
He collected Luminous Stones as well. There is no anomaly note on that page Manassas Ritualist-tango-icon-20.png 00:54, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
Ach, so he did. (I forgot that was salvage.) In that case, I would argue that we should include a note at that page, too. However, I'm willing to wait to see what other peeps say here before making other changes.   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 01:54, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
I'll continue to be annoying on this until I get my way: Quest items and consumables has also been collected from him twice each. Do we stick an anomaly note on Mandragor Root Cake, Skalefin Soup, Juneberries and Herrings? - I strongly don't thing anything being collected by Nicholas should be tagged as an anomaly, rather we shoul just note that Nick has "visited" this item (as we already do). Still I'm a (somewhat) reasonable person so I will wait the responses out too. Manassas Ritualist-tango-icon-20.png 09:50, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
If Nick is a collector (as many argue), then, yes, those would be anomalies: other items labeled in-game as "quest item" do not have collectors. On the other hand, Nick as a collector is completely anomalous: he collects anything, he changes his requests, he doesn't stay in the same place, he doesn't offer the standard collector NPC interface, he limits the number of items that can be delivered, and he doesn't display a collector's icon on the mission map. So, I would prefer that we don't refer to him as a collector (in which his collection of Charr Hides etc is no longer noteworthy).   — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 05:01, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
I second that. And actually we don't tag Nicholas as being a collector as it is. Manassas Ritualist-tango-icon-20.png 09:04, 6 December 2009 (UTC)

Not really an anomaly...[edit]

Or at the very least, it's not useful to simply state that it is collectable and that is is strange. For those who remember, back in '05, prices for Fur Squares was 2k each and the best way to get them was to expert salvage charr hides. In response to the great demand, A-Net put in the collector during an update. I can't recall what update it was, but rather than an "anomaly" it should be a Historical Note. --Knux 08:50, 9 May 2010 (UTC)

(9 months later...) I think this is an excellent reason for classifying Charr Hide collections as anomalous; ANet has not done the same thing for other trophies or items that salvage into rare mats (e.g. geodes) nor have they generally felt the need to provide collectors for any other salvage items.  — Tennessee Ernie Ford (TEF) 01:34, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
