Foraging

From The Walkscape Walkthrough


Foraging is a skill which allows you to gather things from nature and urban areas. Forests, hills, and plains are a good source to find plants and seeds that can be used for the Cooking and Farming skills while towns and cities contain materials used in the Crafting and Smithing skills. With higher Foraging levels, you’ll have access to more items, better foraging tools, and special skilling equipment that can boost your foraging efficiency. You can also receive foraging chests as a rare drop from training this skill.

Activities

Foraging is unique in that its main way to train from the start, also lends itself to working alongside Agility.

For activities involving two skills, the player is only eligible to earn chests in skills that have actual level requirements.

So, if the activity has a foraging level requirement, it will be eligible to drop Foraging Chests.

When performing an activity for a skill, only the primary skill is factored in for the player's equipment bonuses, the "2nd Skill" will also be affected by the equipment attributes based toward the "1st Skill" (IE: +1 Exp will apply to the "2nd Skill" as well).

The following activities are eligible to drop Foraging Chests.
