Herblore Tome 2023 Updates
Subject: Herblore Tome 2023 Updates
Previously released at past auctions, Herblore Tomes for several of the major cities had 50 hard coded pages and pictures which displayed what forageable items were available in the current room. This feature was largely made obsolete with the release of FORAGE SENSE.
The pictoral index is still available, showing all forageable items which grow in one room. The 50 hard-coded pages have been replaced with a dynamic search of all forageables available in the tome's realm. When each entry is read, it will list the climate and terrain appropriate for the forageable, any entry from the Elanthian Flora Guide, and any entry from Speech Unspoken: The Language of Flowers.
GAZE will show whether the selected forageable is present in the particular room, and if it is foraged out. PONDER will show where in the immediate area (maybe same LOCATION, maybe not, depending on how the area was built) the forageable grows.
Moving while holding the tome with a forageable selected will alert you when you enter a room that the forageable grows in. If you have an active foraging bounty task in the tome's realm, when you hold the tome it will alert you without you needing to select it first. The movement messaging is overridden if you have a movement style selected. All benefits apply in the tome's realm only.
When holding the tome while foraging, the negative bonus stemming from having only one hand free is removed, and a +25 bonus is granted.
Herblore Tomes of Elanthia have received a face lift in advance of the Grand Auction of 5123!
