Crafting Materials Farming Exploit

Head towards The Storm Coast and head towards the Storm’s Solitude. Once you are there, you need to head travel towards the shore and keep on following the beach to find different Crafting Materials in good amount. You will not only find Herbs and Metal, but also other Crafting Materials.

Once you are done with Storm’s Solitude, head towards the Small Grove Camp and go through the mountains to reach a valley before the Long River. Similar to the Storm’s Solitude, you will find loads of Crafting Material in this area. You will also come across several bandits who will provide you with more Crafting Material.

You need to kee going along the Long River and and farm everything you come across. Almost at the end of the river, you will come across a cavern (you will also come here as a part of a quest). It is in this cavern where you will get loads of common and rare Crafting Material.

Lastly, do note that if you backtrack your path, you will not find as many Crafting Material as you would in the first run. This method was originally discovered by KineticGTR of YouTube.
