Wood

From Istaria Lexica

Logs are the raw material from which Wood Boards are created. These in turn are used to create tools, weapons, and building products. Logs are harvested from trees or dead Treants of the same name (Bark and Sap are other resources that can be harvested from trees).

Wood Boards are produced by the Gatherer, Blacksmith, Fletcher, and Carpenter schools using the Lumbering skill at a Table Saw Station with a Wood Saw.

Wood Boards are used in:

Formulas[edit]

Formula Minimum Skill

Beginner Wood (Tier 1&2)[edit]

These boards are created from their respective logs using the Beginner Wood Board formula, a Wood Saw, and the Lumbering skill (which must be at least the minimum skill of the material you want to work with). It is suggested that you use tools made from materials equal to or greater than the tier you are crafting with. The level range for the beginner formula is 1-40; at level 40, you may scribe the Journeyman formula.

Cedar[edit]

Cedar is the Tier 1 wood. It can be found across Genevia Island, in the center of the Lesser Aradoth, west of Kion, northwest of Bristugo, southwest of Pleasant Canyon, northwest of Vagrant's Rest, southeast of Dalimond, southeast of Slate Crest, east of Wolf's Paw, northeast of Mithril's Anvil, all across New Trismus and south of Aiya. Genevia Island and New Trismus probably offer the best places for gathering and refining Cedar - in New Trismus, there is a wood cutting station nearby and the guards of the resource are very low level. On Genevia Island, there's likely to be some player structures around to help you with gathering and refining the resource.

Elm[edit]

Elm is the Tier 2 wood. It can be found all across the south of the Abandoned Island partially guarded by Ruxus and Forest Oastics, on top of the mountain on Scorpion Island guarded by some Winter Wolves, east of Bridgehold, southwest and east of Darvus, west of Scorpion's Claw, northeast of the Observatory Peninsula and along the coast some, all around the way between Sable Shore and Dalimond Bay, northwest and northeast of King's Cross, north of Bristugo, north of Heart guarded by its respective treant, north of King's Cross guarded by Weak Arbotus, west and far west of Chiconis guarded by the respective treants again, southeast of Slate Crest, and western Island of Falathien. It's possible the areas near Dalimond and Bristugo are best, although the Abandoned Island offers a notable amount of wood unguarded nearby the woodcutter.

Journeyman Wood (Tier 3&4)[edit]

This wood is crafted from its respective logs using the Journeyman Wood Board formula (you must have at least 400 Logging skill to scribe this formula!), a Wood Saw, and the Logging skill (which must be at least the minimum skill of the material you want to work with). It is suggested that you use tools made from materials equal to or greater than the tier you are crafting with. The level range for the journeyman formula is 40-80; at level 80, you may scribe the Expert formula.

Maple Log Maple Log and Board.png The Spire (north), Wolf's Paw, Stormy March, Abandoned Shore, Island of Falathien 4 600 875

Oak[edit]

Oak is the Tier 3 wood. It can be found far northwest of Desert's Edge, all around the north of Duskhold and Heather guarded by Mountain Wolves and Oak Treants, west of Snowfall, southwest of Summit guarded by Snowback Wolves, north of Carmo guarded by treants, east of Mahagra, east of Harton Valley, within the Valley of Repose, southeast of Winter Vale, all along the path west of Acul guarded by treants, in South Gate, east of Brandon's Shelf, and southwest of Mithril's Anvil guarded by Oak, Maple, and Cedar Treants. The best place is up in the air, but possibly near Heather due to the player housing.

Maple[edit]

Maple is the Tier 4 wood. It can be found all around the area north of the Spire guarded by Maple Treants, northeast of Wolf's Paw guarded by a mix of treants, south of Stormy March guarded by respective treants and Bhal'kuks, along the Abandoned Shore near Morning Light guarded by the respective treants, and in the central Island of Falathien. Due to the nearby town, the Abandoned Shore might be the best bet despite the guarding.



Expert Wood (Tier 5)[edit]

This wood is crafted from its respective log using the Expert Wood Board formula (you must have at least 800 Logging skill to scribe this formula!), a Wood Saw, and the Logging skill (which must be at least the minimum skill of the material you want to work with). It is suggested that you use tools made from materials equal to or greater than the tier you are crafting with. The level range for the expert formula is 80-100; at level 100, you may scribe the Master formula.

Yew[edit]

Yew is the Tier 5 wood. It can be found on southwestern Drakul somewhat guarded by Monsoon, south of Meadowhill, south of Yewn on the Saritova Islands guarded primarily by Yew Treants, and north-northeast of Harro in the Yew Forest guarded by the respective treant and Forest Oastics. The Harro location is the most accessible and has player housing near enough to be useful, but there's no real painless place.



Master Wood (Tier 6)[edit]

This wood is crafted from its respective log using the Master Wood Board formula (you must have at least 1000 Logging skill to scribe this formula!), a Wood Saw, and the Logging skill (which must be at least the minimum skill of the material you want to work with). It is suggested that you use tools made from materials equal to or greater than the tier you are crafting with.

Thornwood[edit]

Thornwood is the Tier 6 wood. It can be found south, east, and northeast of Harro. This is the only location and is mostly guarded by Thornwood Treants, although the northernmost portions aren't guarded. However, they're a pain to get to on foot.
