Current Efforts and the Rift

Just a quick head's up - In the Rift the location an herb or foragable is found is not random, as depicted in the chart. Certain foragables will only be found in rooms with an exit, and certain others only in a room with a path. To make matters worse, I believe (but do not have enough evidence yet to offer as proof) that certain climate types of rooms in the Rift will only occur in rooms with an exit, while certain other climate types of rooms in the Rift will only occur in rooms with a path.

That makes all of this beastly difficult to predict not because the herb is changing location, but because the rooms themselves change type. The frequency of the change seems to be about 15 minutes, but again I cannot offer solid proof. When a room changes type, it may (and most likely will) change between exit and path types. But it may also change between the seven region types. I'm not yet sure if it changes region types wholly independent of exit / path, or if they are linked, or if there is a direct correlation between exit / path rooms and their region type.

The easiest way to experience this is to be in mid-bounty foraging, successfully gathering mawflowers, only to be told suddenly that this type of plant probably doesn't grow here. If you LOOK, you'll find the room changed from a room with a path, to a room with an exit.

And some info (Plane 1 here. ending with lich room 2588 which switched while I was standing there)

[The Rift]
You notice a seraceris and a naisirc.
Obvious paths: east, southwest, west, northwest
>forage sense
Glancing about, you notice the immediate area should support specimens of withered deathblossom, fleshsore bulb, fleshbinder bud, grave blossom, black mawflower, and green fleshbulb.
The surroundings look lush and verdant.

A swirling cloud of eerie green light floats in and coalesces into a naisirc!

The link to the UFS is broken --SDANIEL 10:40, 19 January 2010 (EST)

Question for Xygon

You removed a lot of stuff. Generally, that's not a good idea. What's up? A lot of stuff removed is still useful, especially the external links, which should've been labelled differently, but not removed. Additionally, the UFS script has listed, in detail, which climates and terrains you can find these things. I think the biggest asset of this table was the addition of the bounty values, which doesn't change, and you've removed most of them. -Andy talk 20:26, 16 September 2006 (EDT)

Old stuff

Don't worry, I'll make sure this page doesn't blow really badly soon. Just wanted to have something up here for ppl to start dumping data in to if they wanted. justin talk 17:48, 14 August 2006 (EDT)

Unpoopified. Thanks a TON Augie and Trebeeri for adding stuff, but for U's sanity's sake, I've moved the last version of the table here, and if we could put things in it that have climate and location info. Please keep helping with this so we can get this, you know, comprehensive and stuff. Sorry I did such a terrible job earlier. justin talk 00:17, 15 August 2006 (EDT)

"The beauty of this, is that it does not matter the time, location, realm, or day; each combination of climate and terrain will have a certain type of herb(s) growing." Most of this information is incorrect. You might want to check the information in the UFS for some details on the system (I think it only works properly in the Wizard FE, though).
