Collections: Red Glowies

These tradeskill collection quests were initially added with GU46, then additional collections have been added over time. There are a few special things to note before we go further:

  • Unless otherwise noted you must have completed the quest for the Earring of the Solstice in order to see the shiny spawns. This means that you must be level 80 in your primary tradeskill and have finished your crafting epic. (Tinkering and transmuting do not count, as they are secondary tradeskills.) As of Feb. 22, 2011, you no longer have to actually have the earring equipped, you just have to have earned it. Newer collections have various quest completion requirements instead of requiring the earring of the solstice and are in a separate table
  • Some of the actual rewards are NO TRADE, others are tradeable
  • Hand-ins award you with adventuring xp/AA.
  • Some of the items have special effects to them and will be explained underneath the image tables.

Scattered throughout Norrath, for only the most skilled of crafters to discover, are red collection glowies that can only be seen by those who own the Earring of the Solstice.

Note that the number in parens in the table below indicates the number of unique glowies in that collection.

*Added notes

  • While the Blood Iron Forge only works for crafting the Blood Iron Armor, and the Sootfoot Forge only allows for the creation of Sooftfoot Armor, the Forge of Brell is a functional normal forge, plus it also works for crafting the Censer of Containment from the ToT crafting line.
  • Loping Plains: Bar Glasses Collection - The best spots to find these seem to be near Somborn Village. The shelves are no-trade, but will allow you to snag a level 80 no-trade, no zone drink from them.
  • Barren Sky: Piano Keys Collection, 5 pieces - This piano has a right-click option to play music! These have been found on Whisperwind Isle and the Isle of Awakening.
  • Fens of Nathsar: Chart Fragments Collection, 10 pieces - A Norrathian Star Chart. These can be found along the path leading to Bathezid's Watch as well as the various paths leading to Riliss.

    Enchanted Lands: Wooden Salvage Collection, 6 pieces. Expect to find these along the shore of the ocean in Enchanted Lands, especially around the dock area.

  • The Down Below (Qeynos) and the Thieve's Way (Freeport): Slime Samples, 6 pieces. A ____ cube (house pet). You get your choice of one of three rewards. Choices are "a clear gelatinous cube", "a gelatinous crate", or a "slimy gelatinous cube", all of which are housepets.
  • Greater Faydark: Faydwer Flowers collection - Glowies are found around the Nursery area of GFay.
  • Greater Faydark: Tunare's Glade Leaves - Fae Arbor. Glowies are found around the Tunare's Glade portion of GFay.
  • Zek, The Orcish Wastes: Blood Iron Forge. Lore, no-trade glowies are found scattered throughout the zone. The quest reward is a fully-functional specialty forge that allows the crafting of the Blood Iron armor sets, without the need to travel to Deathfist Citadel to craft those specific recipes.
  • Lavastorm: Lore, no-trade glowies are found in the front parts of the zone. The collection reward is a fully-functional specialty forge that allows the crafting of the Sootfoot Magma Armor. (This appearance armor can only be crafted on this for orthe special forge in Lavastorm)
  • The three spirit anchors are teleporters to their respective zones (Eidolon Jungle, Obol Plains (Cardin Ward), and Vesspyr Isles

But Wait, There's More!

I did mention that not all collections required that you complete the quest for the Earring of the Solstice, correct? And that not all of the shinies were lore? The below five red shiny collections come from the Planes of Prophecy Daily Tradeskill Missions. To be clear, these only spawn in the daily tradeskill missions, NOT in the signature line version of the instances. You will receive 3-4 red shinies per mission. If you zone out/camp for any reason, you will not receive any more shinies, even if you have not obtained the 3-4 you should get from the zone, so gobble shinies before you have to camp/zone for any reason.

You do not need to have obtained your Earring of the Solstice in order to see these red shinies. You will, of course, have to have completed the Planes of Prophecy Tradeskill Signature Line in order to gain access to the mission zones. The shinies are completely tradeable, with no Lore tag.

The rewards are: Heart of Scorn Shrine (Ants), Prince of Hate Shrine (Flies), Basilica of Hate Brazier (Moths), Shrine of Eternal Agony (Beetles), Unholy Water Font (Spiders).

... I Didn't Say We Were Done Yet!

Four new red shiny collections were added in Vetrovia for GU119. Each collection has a different requirement, so read carefully!

  • The Karuupa Jungle collection spawns can be seen by those who have completed Were is the Messenger: Say Cheese.
  • The Mahngavi Expanse collection spawns can be seen by those who have completed Were is the Messenger: Mad Machinations.
  • The Forlorn Gist collection spawns can be seen when players are under the effect of the Illusion: Werewolf potion available from Renfry's Basement.(If you have only completed through Were is the Messenger: Mad Machinations, you can buy the Illusion: Werewolf from Ziggy in Renfry's Basement. If you have completed the entire Were is the Messenger line, you could alternately pick up either the daily or the weekly TS mission from within Renfry's Basement to obtain a free Illusion: Werewolf.)
