Collection Quests involve the gathering of several different items (called collectibles) of a similar type. These items are found by collecting shinies that typically appear as "?" marks found scattered randomly on the ground (similar to the image to the right). Completed collections must be brought to a Collector to receive the Reward. Most collectible pieces may also be bought and sold freely on the broker.

Tome Collections

Tome Collections are a special type of collection quest comprised of harvestable pages which are found either as a "!" mark on the ground in most zones (unlike shinies, these nodes appear as a fluttering page instead of a shining point of light), or by clicking on various objects in a zone (e.g. rocks, pillars, bones, etc). Also unlike collection quests, some pages are flagged as NO-TRADE and therefore must be gathered by the character wishing to complete the quest.

Note: For the few collections that have 1 page as a monster drop, these WILL drop off gray mobs.

Expert Collections

With the addition of Echoes of Faydwer (and continued with later expansions and updates), Expert Collections have been added to the game that provide players with special, rare collection quests. These quests are accessible to characters in two ways. For adventurers, players can complete an Expert Recognition collection and gain an item that allows the character to see special blue harvest nodes (often called "shinies" or "glowies"). For tradeskillers, players can complete their artisan epic and equip the rewarded Earring of the Solstice, which allows them to see special red harvest nodes. Both blue and red harvest nodes would be otherwise invisible to players who had not completed these collections or quest.
