Also Please have a look at my other guide. It shows all the

You can find the post Here. Perfect World Guide to Clothing Dye Pigments.


This is a guide written to help people within the game of
perfectworld have an enjoyable experience while learning
Trade skills within the game.

The first thing you need to begin crafting in perfectworld
is to reach level 5. Until then you cannot craft any items
period. You can begin gathering before level 5, but you
will need the pickaxe bought at one of the merchants
listed in this guide to begin doing so.

Once you reach level 5 you need to go see the Elder in your
town. He will give you the following quests. The quests are
the same for each of the starting towns, although the
location of the Elder and the Merchants are different for
each town. Look for the appropriate location for the town
you are in.

Basically for these quests you must go out and gather
materials. Now this is where some people have a hard
time. Without knowledge of where to look for the materials
and a good plan for getting the materials, most people
really have a hard time with this. So I decided to present
this guide to finding materials and gathering productively.
__________________________________________________
__________________________________________________

Ok, Gathering Materials means you must first Buy a Pickaxe.
You can purchase a pickaxe at the following merchants.
__________________________________________________

For the City of the Lost - Merchant Fu (261 636)
For the City of Plume - Merchant Lo (327 436)
For the Town of Etherblade - Merchant Mu (445 901)
__________________________________________________

Now that you have a pickaxe you need to find the appropriate
places to gather your raw materials. This is very frustrating
unless you know how to do it. First of all let me say that all
the raw material gathering resources de spawn after you use them
1 time. Now let me say that each resource spawns after a time
in the same spot it was just at. So basically you need to make
a list of the resource spawn locations for the materials you
are trying to find.

__________________________________________________

-=-Note-=-

For gathering materials each tier item has a level requirement
to be able to gather them. Materials used to create lvl 1 and 2 items
can be gathered by anyone with a pickaxe in their inventory. For the
Lvl 3 items you must gather the next tier of items. These items cannot
be gathered until your character is level 20. Crafting skill does not
matter here. This is your characters level. There are other materials
with higher level requirements, however this is a new players guide
so we will leave those out for now.

__________________________________________________


I will be posting some known spawn locations for you to use.

Before I post the spawn locations I would like to show you how
to use these location numbers.

First I have heard some people say they cannot see arrows
floating at the edge of their screen when they track quests.
If you cannot you need to fix this. Anyhow if this next step
does not show you arrows, then this trick will not help and
you will just have to manually walk to the locations. The
location numbers can be found on the mini map in the top
right corner of your screen. If you cannot see the mini map,
then you need to click the button in the top right corner
of your screen.

Now for the next step. On your mini map there is an icon that
when hovered over, it says coordinates assistant. click on
this and you should get a box pops up that shows a list of
location names in the left, and a set of coordinates in the
input field for the right side. What you will do here is
to add the coordinates for the type of material you are
looking for in the input window, When you input them,
Do NOT use a comma. Input it as ### ###
then click enter, then type a name for it and hit enter. It should
add a new entry with the name you typed in showing in the
right hand box now.

Close the coordinates window by clicking the same button on
the mini map that you used to open it. Now on your screen
you should see a new arrow on the edge, That is guiding you
to the location you inputted into the coordinates assistant.
Follow that arrow till you get to the spot. When you get
close. on the minimap, you will see a little colored circle
on the ground, the same color as the arrow. thats your
location spot where the harvest spot spawns. If it is there
great, if not look around as these are not always 100% right
on target. But they will be close (By close I mean no more
than a 20 foot circle around the dot.)

Ok now you can add up to 5 coordinates to track at one time
in the coordinate assistant. So that should help you find them.
add 4 - 5 locations and run a pattern and if you time them
right you will have no problem locating your materials for both
the crafting quests and for the crafting itself.

-=-Note-=-

Certain crafting materials are dropped from monsters
or bought in the boutique (Example: Cotton Thread, Rough
Fur, Grease,etc.). If you do not wish to purchase the items
and wish to get them yourself you will be required to kill the
monsters. To find a list of what monsters drop what crafting
material here is a good website link to go check out.


http://www.pwdatabase.com/my/

【goto】 → 【Items】 → 【Materials】 → 【Basic Materials】

And for the Crafted Items Like Copper Bars

【goto】 → 【Items】 → 【Materials】 → 【Crafted Materials】
__________________________________________________
__________________________________________________

-=-Note-=-

When you craft, Certain items you make require you to use
gems when crafting them. Examples are Red Jade, Yellow
Jade, etc. These items can purchased from a Merchant
at a reasonable cost. Certain creatures drop these, but
the drop rates are very slow in comparison to just
purchasing them at a merchant.

Also certain items you craft at the apothocary will need
ingredients called Yiyuan stones. These items are made
from taking armor, weapons, or ornaments and bringing
them to the appropriate NPC (Blacksmith for Weapons,
Tailor for Armor, etc.) and picking the option to Decompose
Weapon, Ornament, etc.

Use the appropriate level item to decompose for the
different quality stones. Yinyuan are the lowest so use
lower level items to get them.

(Note) The higher the quality, the more stones you get
back. ☆ items give a lot less than ☆☆ items.

☆☆☆ items seem to always give mirage stones back.

__________________________________________________
__________________________________________________

Ok now you got your materials and want to start crafting. Now
go finish the 4 quests by returning to the corresponding NPC, then
each one will give you a book. Once you have all 4 books, go to the
elder and choose the option learn manufacturing skill Click each
skill and click yes to learn them. (Note the book must be in your
inventory when you talk to the Elder)

Ok so now you are level 1 skilled in all 4 professions and want
to craft, so what do you do. Well you goto your corresponding
Craft type merchant (Tailor for tailoring, Blacksmith for Blacksmithing,
etc) and choose one of the following:

Manufacture Weapons (For Blacksmithing)
Remedy Manufacturing (For Alchemy)
Manufacture Equipment (For Tailor)
Manufacture Ornaments (For Craftsman)

Now when the window opens, you pick the item you wish to make
and you will see a list of the materials needed. They must be
in your inventory in order to craft the item. Also note when
you choose the item it will say under the list of ingredients
(Requires whichever Skill 1 or 2, etc) That is the required
skill you need to make the item. Since you are just starting
out, make the skill level 1 items. As you make the items,
there is a bar on the top right of the window that fills up
as you make items. Once that fills up, you can then go see
the Elder and train the skill to advance to the next skill level.

You can do this all the way up until skill level 3. Once you get
skill level 3. You are stuck here until you obtain level 50 on
your character. and once you do that, you will then be offered
quests to advance to skill level 4 and beyond, just like you
did for getting skill 1 unlocked.

    hey its a great guide bit of advice its not raw iron its called pigs iron for those who dont know it so u might want to change that also if u intend to make a teir 2 mats guide for locations i can help a bit i think. if spawn spots are the same per server then we can set up a thing for this let me kno i usually check where i post 1-3 times a week also i kno some great places depending on ur lvl where mobs drop stuff currently lvl 44 an want to be lvl 50 so bad lolz heck if we set this up right we might even get stickied ^.^ and lower the prices for everything craftng wise O.O omg.... YAY "throws confetti" also might awnt to list goods general areas that mobs drop certain needed crafting items u kno like rough fur consentrated glue umm purified oil an silk thread i kno it lists on the data base what mobs drop it but not everyone knows where they are so were we to give info as to where to hunt in general for certain mobs cause they drop more then ya kno this might get stickied ect well if u wanna do this with me lemme kno kk

    For gathering materials each tier item has a level requirement
    to be able to gather them. Materials used to create lvl 1 and 2 items
    can be gathered by anyone tht has done the quests above. For the
    Lvl 3 items you must gather the next tier of items. These items cannot
    be gathered until your character is level 20. Crafting skill does not
    matter here. This is your characters level. There are other materials
    with higher level requirements, however this is a new players guide
    so we will leave those out for now.

    Thanks for that information. I could not find that in any of the other guides I looked at. I was having a hard time figuring out what to do for gathering, Resources always seemed to avoid me. Now I can find them fairly easy. Thanks for the information. It's no longer a seemingly worthless struggle to find materials.

    Also you said if this helped post some type of reply. Well this has been a Very BIG help to me. So here is a very big THANK YOU ! ! ! back at you. b:sinb:shyb:thanksb:pleased

    You CAN gather beginning materials (pig iron, ageratum, nectar, golden herb, logs, coal dust, sandstone) from level 1; I'd reccommend it since you can gather more crafting materials starting from level 1 instead of level 5.

    You are correct. All you need is a pickaxe for 2000 gold to be able to harvest the materials. The change will be noted in the original guide. Thank you for this information.

    Yes the current maximum Saved points you can have in the coordinates area is 5. However if you know the material you are trying to get, and insert 5 locations that are close to each other, you can then run a circle pattern to those 5 and keep a steady flow of the resource being collected by yourself. Timing is the key, as they re spawn and you will need them close enough to be able to get to each in time. You cannot save them permanently in the list of saved names on the left however, so once you have collected enough resources, or are tired of running in circles. you will need to delete those 5 and recreate a new list next time you want to do the same. You would not want to have them saved all the time and have your maps cluttered with resource icons anyhow. That would be a clusterfudge on your map display. It would be nice to be able to save them on your left hand side of names for the area you are in, but that is up to the game to design. I cant change that.

    Thanks for the input guys, hopefully they will find this post useful enough to sticky. b:laugh

    ideally i was looking for an actual map for these but the co ords are brilliant.

    i might look if i could do a user submit (sorta like a wiki) so people can come and place ie resourse spots on the map. just dont know how i would go about making a interactive map.

    ps if anyone has experiance making a interactive map pm me if youve got any guides on the subject. thank you

    PerfectWorld Crafting and Gathering Guide

    Written by Shyriena of Sanctuary

    (Note: If you read this and it helps you, please
    post a comment with a quick reply. Thank you. b:thanks


    This is a guide written to help people within the game of
    perfectworld have an enjoyable experience while learning
    Trade skills within the game.

    The first thing you need to begin crafting in perfectworld
    is to reach level 5. Until then you cannot craft any items
    period. You can begin gathering before level 5, but you
    will need the pickaxe bought at one of the merchants
    listed in this guide to begin doing so.

    Once you reach level 5 you need to go see the Elder in your
    town. He will give you the following quests. The quests are
    the same for each of the starting towns, although the
    location of the Elder and the Merchants are different for
    each town. Look for the appropriate location for the town
    you are in.

    __________________________________________________
    __________________________________________________

    Basically for these quests you must go out and gather
    materials. Now this is where some people have a hard
    time. Without knowledge of where to look for the materials
    and a good plan for getting the materials, most people
    really have a hard time with this. So I decided to present
    this guide to finding materials and gathering productively.
    __________________________________________________
    __________________________________________________

    Ok, Gathering Materials means you must first Buy a Pickaxe.
    You can purchase a pickaxe at the following merchants.
    __________________________________________________

    For the City of the Lost - Merchant Fu (261 636)
    For the City of Plume - Merchant Lo (327 436)
    For the Town of Etherblade - Merchant Mu (445 901)
    __________________________________________________

    Now that you have a pickaxe you need to find the appropriate
    places to gather your raw materials. This is very frustrating
    unless you know how to do it. First of all let me say that all
    the raw material gathering resources de spawn after you use them
    1 time. Now let me say that each resource spawns after a time
    in the same spot it was just at. So basically you need to make
    a list of the resource spawn locations for the materials you
    are trying to find.

    __________________________________________________

    -=-Note-=-

    For gathering materials each tier item has a level requirement
    to be able to gather them. Materials used to create lvl 1 and 2 items
    can be gathered by anyone tht has done the quests above. For the
    Lvl 3 items you must gather the next tier of items. These items cannot
    be gathered until your character is level 20. Crafting skill does not
    matter here. This is your characters level. There are other materials
    with higher level requirements, however this is a new players guide
    so we will leave those out for now.

    __________________________________________________


    I will be posting some known spawn locations for you to use.

    Before I post the spawn locations I would like to show you how
    to use these location numbers.

    First I have heard some people say they cannot see arrows
    floating at the edge of their screen when they track quests.
    If you cannot you need to fix this. Anyhow if this next step
    does not show you arrows, then this trick will not help and
    you will just have to manually walk to the locations. The
    location numbers can be found on the mini map in the top
    right corner of your screen. If you cannot see the mini map,
    then you need to click the button in the top right corner
    of your screen.

    Now for the next step. On your mini map there is an icon that
    when hovered over, it says coordinates assistant. click on
    this and you should get a box pops up that shows a list of
    location names in the left, and a set of coordinates in the
    input field for the right side. What you will do here is
    to add the coordinates for the type of material you are
    looking for in the input window, When you input them,
    Do NOT use a comma. Input it as ### ###
    then click enter, then type a name for it and hit enter. It should
    add a new entry with the name you typed in showing in the
    right hand box now.

    Close the coordinates window by clicking the same button on
    the mini map that you used to open it. Now on your screen
    you should see a new arrow on the edge, That is guiding you
    to the location you inputted into the coordinates assistant.
    Follow that arrow till you get to the spot. When you get
    close. on the minimap, you will see a little colored circle
    on the ground, the same color as the arrow. thats your
    location spot where the harvest spot spawns. If it is there
    great, if not look around as these are not always 100% right
    on target. But they will be close (By close I mean no more
    than a 20 foot circle around the dot.)

    Ok now you can add up to 5 coordinates to track at one time
    in the coordinate assistant. So that should help you find them.
    add 4 - 5 locations and run a pattern and if you time them
    right you will have no problem locating your materials for both
    the crafting quests and for the crafting itself.
    __________________________________________________
    __________________________________________________

    Ok now you got your materials and want to start crafting. so #1
    finish the 4 quests by returning to the corresponding NPC, then
    each one will give you a book. Once you have all 4 books, go to the
    elder and choose the option learn manufacturing skill Click each
    skill and click yes to learn them. (Note the book must be in your
    inventory when you talk to the Elder)

    Ok so now you are level 1 skilled in all 4 professions and want
    to craft, so what do you do. Well you goto your corresponding
    Craft type merchant (Tailor for tailoring, Blacksmith for Blacksmity, etc)
    and choose one of the following:

    Manufacture Weapons (For Blacksmithing)
    Remedy Manufacturing (For Alchemy)
    Manufacture Equipment (For Tailor)
    Manufacture Ornaments (For Craftsman

    Now when the window opens, you pick the item you wish to make
    and you will see a list of the materials needed. They must be
    in your inventory in order to craft the item. Also note when
    you choose the item it will say under the list of ingredients
    (Requires whichever Skill 1 or 2, etc) That is the required
    skill you need to make the item. Since you are just starting
    out, make the skill level 1 items. As you make the items,
    there is a bar on the top right of the window that fills up
    as you make items. Once that fills up, you can then go see
    the Elder and train the skill to advance to the next skill level.

    You can do this all the way up until skill level 3. Once you get
    skill level 3. You are stuck here until you obtain level 50 on
    your character. and once you do that, you will then be offered
    quests to advance to skill level 4 and beyond, just like you
    did for getting skill 1 unlocked.

    Hi. I'm trying to follow your guide for collecting logs in the outskirts in Etherblade. I am currently at the coordinates 476 871 but so far nothing has showed up at those coordinates or its surrounding areas. Do you know approx. how often things spawn or how long I should wait. I've been here for about 15 minutes.

    Thank you for the guide.

    they might not be at the exact spot pal i was looking for iron and they spawned around the area stated try running around the area (where the dot on map is)
    possiby they were behind a hill or similar and someone got to it first

    ive tried a few coords out and all of them i tried were about right.

    These are found from decomposing items. Like lower level armor, weapons etc. You must goto the Appropriate NPC and choose decompose armor, weapon, ornament, etc. The higher the quality, the more stones you get back. ☆ items give a lot less than ☆☆ items.

    Use the appropriate level item to decompose for the different quality stones. Yinyuan are the lowest so use lower level items to get them.

    ☆☆☆ items seem to always give mirage stones back.

    Thanks for taking the time to draw this up! :D

    Undead mobs drop Thread a lot. The level of the mob will determine the type of thread. Cotton, Silk, Etc.

    Also can try this link to find items and what monsters drop them.

    http://www.pwdatabase.com/my/

    【goto】 → 【Items】 → 【Materials】 → 【Basic Materials】

    And for the Crafted Items Like Copper Bars

    【goto】 → 【Items】 → 【Materials】 → 【Crafted Materials】

    And this is a link directly to the Cotton Thread

    Note: I will be adding the link to the main guide.

    I'm well into the levels now, but wanted to come back and thank you for this guide. It really took care of my 'stupid noob' questions and saved me quite a bit of time. Even though quite a few of the place names are still in roughly-translated moonspeak, the co-ords helped too!
