Materials locations list

#1ShriekingRodentPosted 6/22/2009 1:23:14 AM
Lousy title, but I couldn't think of anything better without getting too wordy.

Anyway, I looked around here and was surprised that there doesn't seem to be a list of where to get the basic materials in the game (although I could have missed it, and if I did, would appreciate if someone could point me towards it). Because of this, I started to write down the materials I obtained after each mission for future reference, and was wondering if anyone here thought it might be helpful if I posted my results. I am not going to pretend that these lists are comprehensive, they are just what I obtained, so if anyone is looking for a particular material, they should be able to do a search and find missions where it is at least possible to obtain it. For example:

Chapter 1
Bandit Trap
Short shard
Long shard
Wide Shard
Stone lump
Old stick
Waxwood
Earth spirit
Old Charm
Obsidian
Sand star
Bamboo
Black coal

Officer Pursuit
Short shard
Long shard
Wide shard
Stone lump
Obsidian
Malachite
Sand star
Bamboo
Cotton cloth
Flax cord
Leather

Lost Belongings
Short shard
Long shard
Wide shard

Old stick
Peasant book
Glue
Hawk statue

Surprise Attack
Short shard
Long shard
Earth spirit
Old charm
Bsidian
Malachite
Sand star
Bamboo
Cotton cloth
Flax cord
Black coal

I am playing through with Cao Cao, and I don't know if the missions change substantially for the other factions. I currently have pretty much all of the board missions and story missions through Chapter 4 and part of Chapter 5, as well as (I think) 3 of the DLC missions. Anyway, I just felt that if anyone else would find this helpful, I may as well share it.

This is valuable information indeed. Thank you for posting.

All kingdoms share the first three chapters, and most likely the very last one as well, except for the order in which the first Battle Quest stages are presented (an assumption based on observation). Chapters 4 and 5 are the ones with substantial differences from one kingdom to another; it is not coincidental that all Legends of characters affiliated to one of the Three Kingdoms --with the exception of the three major rulers'-- are located in these two chapters.

I'm still working on Chapter 6. Again, this is all for the Wei kingdom. I do plan to go through with the other kingdoms, but that could take some time. Hopefully there isn't much of a discrepancy between the availability of materials in the different kingdom's campaigns.

Any feedback is welcome.

Yeah, that's it.

If you have access to these, Arena Challenger seems like a pretty good place to grind, since it is relatively easy (only fight one officer at a time instead of 3 or 4) but will give you a lot more money than anything in Chapter 1.

sorry if i interupt, in chp2 request, "to the rescue" there is also white coal dropped (randomly?) by the spinning blades.

#9KracovPosted 6/23/2009 12:05:21 PM
hey do you want to make a FAQ with me? mine got rejected but i still have the file.
#10ShriekingRodent(Topic Creator)Posted 6/23/2009 4:32:02 PM
You're right, I played it again and got a White coal. Only one though, so it must be somewhat random.

I wouldn't mind turning this into a FAQ or having someone else turn it into a FAQ. I've never made one before though, and I think this could use a lot of work before becoming FAQ-worthy. Like I said, I basically just wrote down what I got at the end of each mission. Since it is still my first playthrough, I was mostly interested in just playing the game, so I didn't keep track of most details like if a material was obtained randomly as a drop, or dropped by what, or from a chest, etc.

Anyway, back to the list.

Okay, I want to put this one first, since it is actually very helpful late-game, assuming you have the DLC missions:

Download
Ice Bi Xie Appears!
Ancient Leaf
Phantom pillar
Phantom honey
Mystic oil
Phoenix soul (Zhen Ji)
Dragon soul (b) (Cao Pi)
Dragon soul (y) (Sima Yi)

Yes, Zhen Ji, Sima Yi, and Cao Pi will randomly drop Pheonix soul, Dragon soul (y), and Dragon soul (b), respectively. I don't know about the rarity; I think I did the battle 5 or 6 times and only got the Dragon soul (y) once (I actually stopped at this point because I was just trying to make sure if Sima Yi dropped a soul too, since the others already had), but the Phoenix and Dragon (b) each dropped 2-3 times (although I missed a few with Cao Pi because the drop somehow got stuck in Xi Bie in some weird way that kept me from reaching it), but overall, if you've got a character that can handle these guys, this seems like a pretty efficient way to get them than most of the other places they can be found. Too bad it's just those 3, but it looks like the only other way to get Dragon soul (y) is kind of a pain.

So that should do it for Wei. Not sure when I'll get around to the Wu and Shu missions, since now I'm kind of playing around with other characters and weapons, since I spent the last 40 hours or so pretty much exclusively with Cao Cao and a sword/warfan combo.
