Oki doke. Dunno if theres one of these around or not, I looked but couldnt find any updated ones and Ive had some people express a desire for one, so heres a resource map of Polar Borderlands! Some places may not be 100% exact, but it'll get you close enough for your map to pick em up. Also might have missed one or two plant or ore spots, but I think I got most of em. -Sorry if the image is a little big/small-
~ Mining and Ore ~
Ore: Copper, Quicksilver, Tin
Previously found in: Sea of Oblivion, Lunagrant, Hazed Wilderness, and I *think* Gloomy Forest
ALSO cool little tip~ All ore- at least up to zinc- will occasionally spawn a little goblin. They'll drop footprint cards corresponding to the previously found in areas. Aegis wars and Torture torms can one hit these mobs with skills like Soul Harvest. They also can spawn off flowers. Fishing can also produce a "Mysterious Bottle" with an old starter zone card inside. Cards are unbound, however the item is.
-Edit- Seems like the green starter cards that were bound before, are still bound.
~ BOTANY ~
Additionally, You can find any plant not shown here at the Cooking Tutor, Michell, in the Mercury Marketplace of Nightfall Citadel. I seem to be missing Frostblade Grass though, which *may* come from the guild base planet. EDIT: You can find Peace Lily behind the Furball Tamer in Deap Sea Gateway. Thanks so much to mavip4n for the info!
2017 Edit: Fishing seems to have a chance to pick up some flowers among the fish. Im not sure exactly how many flower types can be found, but I assume it depends on your fishermans level and the area you fish. Fishing can also give other goodies, if you fish in an area that gives the "Warmth" buff. As of the 110 patch, watch world chat for the warmth buff broadcast, it should have realm/location.MAP ONE
