    So now that I am a Zinc junky I took a peek into the API data to see where Zinc is being landed in the highest amounts. Not surprising K'rul was at the top, but I was very surprised to see Celestis at #4. Made me very curious about what is in Celestis that has Zinc. I first thought, well looting bodies so what is in Celestis to kill? Looking at the data the top MOB death was... chickens. That's not it. So I went to Celestis and noticed something I haven't paid much attention to in the past. There were piles of crates, barrels, and sacks all over... the docks, the NPC buildings, and the NPC vendors. I started looting and found where the Zinc was coming from :) I ended up with 14 Zinc after looting all I could find and that took 15 mins. I get the same amount of Zinc from a KEC run in about 30 if I am lucky so that was interesting. Another thing of note is that I pulled 3 artifacts as well out of the piles. I had not expected that at all. So, for the newer players and anyone who has just overlooked it like me... you can get some cool stuff from towns just looting.

    Good stuff as long as you know that your Truth will be affected.

    Ahh, you discovered my hobby - although I call it "scavenging" and not "looting" :)
    Celestis was not on my list of favorite spots yet, though. I wonder what the #2 and #3 areas were!

    As long as the popup says "Take all" it won't affect virtue. Only if the popup says "Steal all".

    Any areas of interest you are willing to share? :)

    Great question :) You can look things up using my API Search Tool. Specifically for Zinc you may visit the detail page.

    Insane amounts from K'rul... Wonder how much that will drop next release!

    As for "scavenging" Someone mentioned Tarian? That Toenail Drunk, and his house is a gold mine for Quartz, that's a nice spot for it!

    I love that we actually have a new (and profitable) profession: The Junk Collector. :D

    Very interesting! I have a question, though: is there a setting I can use to give the API permission to use my data too? At the moment I guess I'm under Anonymous.

    I did a similar thing in Port Graff. Is was fun raid sacks and etc. Also, the larger town of Graff is rope heaven.

    I always loot barrels , bags and crates all the time now. the number of artifacts I get now from some scenes looting makes it so worth it.

    That should compel the Devs to create a new title: Dumpster Diver
