Farming for Reagents: The Portico

For my Celestial Observatory I needed to farm for some pearls.  The best place I have found for this is The Portico.  It also has the added bonus of being a decent place to farm for kelp as well, which I also need for the aether.  One trip through the following route in The Portico will always yield a minimum of the following:

  • 2 Pearls
  • 2 Kelp
  • 1 Shell
  • Gold (from wooden chest)
You also have the possibility of receiving these other items:
  • Golden pearl (from the pearls)
  • Black pearl (from the pearls)
  • Aether (from the kelp)
  • Aquamarine (from the shell)
  • Various treasure cards or reagents (from the chest)
Here is a map showing the respawn locations of each reagent found in The Porrtico.

The following is a video of me going through my route in The Portico.  I have found this to be the quickest way through, but others may find a quicker way.  Do whatever works for you.  I have added commentary detailing which reagents can be found in each area.

That was the first video I ever made.  And guess what!  I now have all the pearls, golden pearls, and black pearls I need to craft the Observatory.  I think I have almost all the aether.  I may need a couple more kelp to transmute the rest.  But that's a few things crossed off the list at least.

Anyway, thanks for reading.  I hope this information was helpful.  Have fun in your adventures around the Spiral.  See you!
