Harvesting is collecting crafting resources found throughout Northern Bastion to craft weapons, gears, components, and sigils.

Usually, embers can also be harvested along with crafting resources as a by-product. The type of Ember obtained is random.

  • Corium is a special mineral formed inside a Titan when it dies. They can also be found inside Luminaries who obtain these rare minerals from fallen titans. Corium can only be harvested when there is a need for it, such as Crafting the Dawn Shield.

Crystals are formed when there are extreme shaper anomalies in Coda. They form all across Northern Bastion when cataclysms occur.

Crystals are considered very valuable and come in small and large varieties, and both can be harvested. The small variety can be found anywhere, whereas the large variety can only be found around Storm Clouds or inside conjunctions.

If there is no intense shaper activity, crystals only provide embers. Crystals are said to resonate like embers according to cortex entires, which means they can be used to make powerful seals.

Abandoned Javelins

Often times, lancers will have to abandon their javelins when severely damaged. These javelins still contain valuable Javelin Parts which can be harvested for parts. Most, if not almost all abandoned javelins are either Ranger or Colossus as these two are the most popular types.

Interceptor haven't been found abandoned for now as they are either used for diplomatic missions by corvus or specialized Freelancers. Storm javelins are not found either because they are mostly used by Dominion or specialized Freelancers.

Salvage Boxes

There several camps where people store items and forget them. These items can be salvaged for weapon parts, chimeric compounds, and chimeric alloys.

In active camps, these do not indicate whether they can be salvaged or not, but they have a health bar and glow. These are destructible boxes and their contents can only be obtained by breaking them apart.

The rusted boxes found under water cannot be destroyed.

Treasure Chests

All treasure chests are designed to provide Embers other than loot. Some can even provide Chimeric Alloy, Chimeric Compound, Weapon Parts and javelin parts, especially in early game.
