Generate the links so that they are capable of the usual dispatch commands. From a large miner or herbalist city, send 1 unit to each position. After all of them are launched, prestige bump thrice. That will get you the contents of each unguarded location, sent to your notifications. I believe you can parse that as specific rare resources, straight from the API.

Guarded locations, you would have to scout.

Realistically, very few rare herbs and minerals are truly useful. Almost all of the useful ones are available somewhere on the map, with a few exceptions.

Pity. I can describe a more efficient method for most rare herbs and minerals, but you'd need a list of map locations to send them (or else a determined person with quite a bit of time on their hands).

I made a script that redefined the cursor keys to move the map location by twice the current zoom level so I got a completely new map each time. Due to my slow internet it still took 3 days to cover the entire world (I did have some time for sleep). That got me the locations but as you implied it would still need a visit to find out what particular herb/mineral was at that location and I never got round to that.

Is there a file that denotes the locations of materials on the map, or is that only available on the live version?

If you mean on the in-game world map then yes, the game passes information on the size of the NPC group to your browser. If you mean The Likely NPC Location map I made then no. I had to manually scan the whole map recording the data I found and using that to produce the map.

I've not seen rare herbs re-spawn within 30 sqs of their original location. I tried getting people to do things like submitting reports before and was met with a resounding silence so no, I won't be making a thread like that.

I'd like maps and sites for the rarer useful stuff (eg Arterium/ Ebony).

Some other useful but less rare stuff you can find easily enough and then re-site a city (Larken/ Iceheart/ Queen's hair/ Old Oak/ Obsidian) but is it worth it for something you only need for a few stocks in case of unusual missions (obsidian is handy against elementals (not sure if against Tower 'Mages' too?) and ebony against underworld only). Maybe these are cheap enough to buy in the quatities you need....

What a great game - the voyage of discovery goes on and on!

It seems the lore here sets the stage for the missing magical components of the game.  There are plenty of available herbs and minerals that do not have a known purpose in the game and yet they can be collected.  A few were recently made "useful" in the creation of the prestige "exotics".
