Resourceful aura detail.png

Resourceful is a tier 2 aura available as part of the Members Loyalty Programme and can be purchased from Xuan or Solomon's General Store for 23,000 Membership Loyalty Points.

This aura gives the following benefits:

  • 10% chance to not deplete a resource when woodcutting or excavating.
  • +2% geode chance when mining.
  • 10% chance to give an additional red/crystal-flecked sandstone which does not contribute towards the daily limit.

It is activated for an hour and has a recharge time of three hours. Also, as with all auras, if the account using it is logged out while the aura is activated, the timer will continue to run.

The aura can only activate when the resource is about to be depleted. For example, consider a tree where each time a log is gained, there is a 20% chance that the tree is felled (depleted). When this check succeeds, the aura provides a 10% chance that the depletion will be ignored, and the tree will continue providing logs as if nothing happened. Mining sandstone (and trees that provide just one log) simply provide an extra resource when the aura activates.

In Archaeology, the aura only applies to material caches, as artefact excavation spots do not deplete.

The aura can only trigger once per resource point, unless the user changes to another resource point.

The refined perk provides the same effect for Woodcutting and Archaeology, both the perk and the aura can trigger on one tree (in fact, the perk can trigger multiple times with or without the aura).
