    • [W/Rt;OQgkERVXILqkFj3ExjcZGTAwgVXB]

  • A full run around the big tear-/eggplant-shaped rock formation in Holdings of Chokhin will yield many plant fibers as raw drop and from salvaged loot, due to the excessive amount of plants. An added bonus is the blessing at the shrine as you enter the area, which grants Sunspear points and there is a boss on your route.

Still looking for decent Plant Fiber spots or salvage! The areas around black curtain are the best i've seen untill now, and Dragon mosses haven't dropped much yet.. My stacks of dust vs damask is now 20 vs 1..
