Node farm

From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A node farm is a cluster of eight harvesting nodes of the same type. There is exactly one node farm in each of the 25 original zones, except for Wayfarer Foothills, Malchor's Leap and Cursed Shore. The nodes in a farm respawn every 23 hours, similar to rich metal veins, rather than the 1 hour of normal gathering nodes.

Synthesizer groups[edit]

Permanent, easily accessible groups of between 2 and 5 synthesizers. Gathering resources is necessary for crafting and materials gathered may be sold at the trading post.

Sapling clusters[edit]

There are clusters of permanent Cypress Sapling nodes at two Statues of Melandru in Orr. These are not true node farms because they respawn after 1 hour and they are logging nodes, not harvesting nodes; however, they are similar in that they are the only locations in the game with a guaranteed spawn of a large number of logging nodes.

Hidden Garden[edit]

Hidden Garden is a node farm available to people who completed Kudzu III: Leaf of Kudzu collection.


  • Originally there was a potato node farm in Wayfarer Foothills at Haivoissen Kenning, but this was later removed.
  • Although not tightly clustered there are 10 Lotus plants along the shore south of Castaway Circus Waypoint in SW Ember Bay.
  • It is possible to lose access to some nodes in a farm (for that day). If one follows this sequence:
    • Gather while running (R).
    • Gather at one node, but it still still has more gathers available.
    • Run past the now partially-used node (usually due to auto-run).
    • Return to the previously gathered node.
    • The node in question may no longer be active.
