Version History
1.0 First Edition
Section 1: General FAQ Questions
1. What is the difference between crafting and gathering?
Crafting skills allow the player to make new items from smaller components. 
Gathering skills allow players to collect the components used in crafting.

2. How many crafting and gathering skills can I have?
You may have 1 crafting and 1 gathering skill for a total of 2. 

3. What crafting and gathering skills are there?
Crafting: Apothecary, Talisman Making
Gathering: Scavenging, Salvaging, Butchering, Cultivation

4. What is scavenging?
Scavenging is searching humanoid corpses for resources. You may also scavenge
enemy player corpses. 

5. Where can I train scavenging?
Trainers are located in your chapter 2 quest location or The Inevitable City 
(Destruction) and Altdorf (Order)

6. I don't want to scavenge how do I switch to butchering?
As of patch 1.2 you can respec for free to butchering. You will need to visit
Lorne Foulsteel in The Inevitable City (Destruction) or Elsbeth Reiss in Altdorf
(Order). They will give you the quest "Welcome to the Meat Market" which will
let you train in Butchering if you had Scavenging. You will then have the same
level in Butchering that you had in Scavenging. 

7. How do I switch to a trade other than butchering?
Talk to a trainer of the desired trade. Please note you will have to start over
at your base skill level in your new trade and will permanently lose your 
scavenging skill. 

8. What is the purpose of epic quality (purple) fragments?
Epic quality fragments will produce permanent Talismans when used with the 
Talisman making skill. Non-epic fragments in contrast will have a duration and
then expire when the duration is up. 

9. I thought scavenging was supposed to give apothecary components?
This was changed which is why you are given a free respec to butchering if you
choose. Please see question 6 for how to switch. Or question 7 if you would
now rather learn cultivating. 

10. What crafting skill should I take to go with scavenging?
Talisman Making uses the containers, fragments, curios and gold dust you 
scavenge. As of patch 1.2 butchering is now the skill of choice for apothecary. 

11. What is the max skill in scavenging?

12. If I didn't train scavenging in tier 1 do I have to go kill low level mobs?
No. You can kill and scavenge mobs of any level to level up scavenging. This
means you do not have to go back to lower tiers just to level up the skill. 

13. Why is my scavenging skill not going up anymore?
Assuming you are not at the 200 cap you need to scavenge higher level creatures
for your skill to continue to increase. You will probably find a cap of around
50-60 points per tier and then have to move up to the next tier. 

14. How do I use the skill?
First loot a corpse so it no longer sparkles and gives you the hand icon. Your
icon should change to a pair of pliers. Click the corpse as if you are going
to loot it again to scavenge. 

15. It won't let me scavenge a corpse. 
It must be a humanoid corpse or an enemy player. There also needs to be no 
loot left on it. Finally if it was killed by someone else it may take a short
time until the corpse becomes open to other players to scavenge. There is also
a bug with some female models that will not allow scavenging. This bug has
been re-occuring since beta and there is no confirmation that it is permanently
fixed yet. 
Section 2: Scavenged Components
1. What can I scavenge?
You can scavenge containers, fragments, curios and gold dust

2. Do scavenged components stack in my inventory?
Identical components stack.

3. How do you determine the level of the components you will scavenge?
Component level is roughly 5 times the level of the mob you scavenged. This 
means that level 10 mobs drop around level 50 components and so on. The actual
drops follow more of a curved pattern. If you have low scavenging skill the 
components may be of lower quality until you raise your skill. 

4. Do more powerful mobs (heroes, champions) give better components?
Yes there is a chance for better components but it is not guaranteed.

5. Do better components give better talismans?
Yes better components give talismans of more power. The fragment being the 
most important part. 

6. Do better components give more chance of a skillup?
It appears that they do. Just how much more of a chance is unsure.
Section 3: Fragment List
1. What are fragments?
Fragments are the main and one of two required components for talisman making.
Each fragment will have a stat such as willpower. The stat on the fragment will
be the same as the stat on the finished talisman. 

2. What is the purpose of epic quality (purple) fragments?
Epic quality fragments will produce permanent Talismans when used with the 
Talisman making skill. Non-epic fragments in contrast will have a duration and
then expire when the duration is up. 

3. How much can I sell scavenged fragments for?
Epic fragments sell for 2 silver, normal sell for 10 brass

4. What is the skill level on the fragment for?
You cannot use fragments if you do not have a high enough skill in talisman

5. How do I get fragments that are blue/green quality?
Those are from salvaging not scavenging.
