# Location Map Description Further hints
1 Mariner Landing Rock Collector (Firestone 01 map).jpg In a nook high along the western wall. From Mariner's Landing Waypoint head south to the thermal tube and look high along the wall to the south west.
2 Mariner Landing Rock Collector (Firestone 02 map).jpg In plain view near Sub Landing.
3 Mariner Landing Rock Collector (Firestone 03 map).jpg On the ceiling of a dark tunnel. Reef riders stand guard outside. At sea level, look for a small tunnel on your right.
4 Mariner Landing Rock Collector (Firestone 04 map).jpg Atop a diagonal cliff face. Reef riders float nearby. Past #3, keep going up the slope and drop down to the next level. Go past a large tree and it will be on the wall in a cave at the end.
5 Mariner Landing Rock Collector (Firestone 05 map).jpg Near a thermal tube, south of Sub Landing.
6 Western Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 06 map).jpg On the underside of Wind Rider Ledge. Jump off the edge of Wind Rider Ledge and do a tight gliding turn to get to a small, dark ledge underneath. Grab the nearby Oakheart Essence before jumping, in case you miss it.
7 Western Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 07 map).jpg On the side of the foot of Wind Rider Ledge. Head to the center and glide down. It is at the very edge of the water on the south side of the "foot". You will likely fall in trying to get it.
8 Western Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 08 map).jpg Just Below the Mastery Insight. Start from Ancient Hollow Waypoint, head west and south to the edge of the shelf overlooking the sea. Glide off from the edge and land on the edge of Seething Pillar, with the shard being on the edge of the sulfurous rock pool below the mastery insight.
9 Western Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 09 map).jpg Along a ledge northwest of Seething Pillar. Start from Ancient Hollow Waypoint, head west and glide down to the shore. The ledge is at sea level. The shard is hidden behind some bushes in a small crevice.
10 Western Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 10 map).jpg On a stone outcropping east of Seething Pillar. Start from Ancient Hollow Waypoint, head west and glide down to the outcrop located on the small island southeast of the Seething Pillar.
11 Eastern Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 11 map).jpg On an island northwest of Frothing Pedestal. Head due south from Ancient Hollow Waypoint, jump off the edge and glide down to the island. The shard is amongst some acidic water.
12 Eastern Boiling Sea Rock Collector (Firestone 12 map).jpg On the ceiling of a cave along the northern wall. Head southeast from Ancient Hollow Waypoint, jump off the edge and glide to the north. Keep descending until you see an Oakheart Essence. Land and grab an essence. Climb the short slope opposite the sea and then head east into a cave; the shard is up high in the cave.
13 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 13 map).jpg In a cave behind the Rolling Devil nest. From Heathen's Hold, drop down to the level with the Druid's Grotto, then walk south. The entry point is underneath the ramp up. Oakheart Mastery required to reach the cave.
14 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 14 map).jpg At the source of the waterfall at Peace Grounds. Behind the waterfall at the top of the crevice directly above the pool of water.
15 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 15 map).jpg Underneath an outcropping north of Scout's Clearing.
16 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 16 map).jpg At the entrance to a ramp that leads to Scout's Clearing.
17 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 17 map).jpg Near the base of a massive rocky pillar, southwest of the Peace Grounds. Jump off from Heathen's Hold and head to the eastern side of the pillar.
18 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 18 map).jpg A cave in the ceiling below Heathen's Hold waypoint. Jump off from Heathen's Hold and circle back. Use Oakheart Essence on roof of cavern and glide to ledge.
19 Savage Rise Rock Collector (Firestone 19 map).jpg In a cranny within the bristleback's nest On ground level, next to a standing rock formation, there's a tiny crack in the cliffside to the southwest - enter the tiny cave from here.
20 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 20 map).jpg In a ceiling cave below Rata Arcanum. Use updraft to reach ledge.
21 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 21 map).jpg Near the ceiling along the western wall. Start from the Ancient Hollow Waypoint, grab an Oakheart Essence, and head southwest to the leyline. Pick the west-most leyline, glide up along the leyline into the mushroom cave, run straight through it and glide out the other side. Use Oakheart's Reach to get up to the ceiling where you can find another Oakheart Essence to the southwest. Glide around the corner to the left and keep heading south. This shard is suspended from a stalactite slightly to the southwest - land on the nearby ledge, run up the wall and glide back towards/beneath it to collect it.

(If you don't have the leyline mastery, you can also get here by using the thermal tubes west of the Heathen's Hold Waypoint, then jumping beneath Rata Arcanum, making use of updrafts below if you need to collect one of the low-lying Oakheart Essences).

22 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 22 map).jpg On the northern side, in a ceiling crevasse. Start from the Ancient Hollow Waypoint, grab an Oakheart Essence, and head southwest to the leyline. Pick the west-most leyline, glide up along the leyline into the mushroom cave, run straight through it and glide out the other side. Use Oakheart's Reach to get up to the ceiling where you can find another Oakheart Essence to the southwest. Glide around the corner to the left, then reach up the ceiling and go a short distance east. This shard is on a ledge near the top of the ceiling.
23 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 23 map).jpg High along the wall, southwest of Seething Pillar. Start from the Ancient Hollow Waypoint, grab an Oakheart Essence, and head southwest to the leyline. Pick the west-most leyline, glide up along the leyline into the mushroom cave - this time head west across the cave. Glide west and slightly northwest, making use of Oakheart's Reach if you're losing too much altitude. There will be a ledge with another Oakheart's Essence in the middle of it and Grubs beneath - you want to land/glide below and to the right of the Oakheart's Essence.

Alternatively, you can just head north from the updrafts beneath Rata Arcanum (useful if you're coming directly from shard #22 above), and glide down.

24 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 24 map).jpg Embedded high in a large palm tree. Start from the Ancient Hollow Waypoint, grab an Oakheart Essence, and glide southwest and down to the Wind Rider Ledge. Use Oakheart's Reach to grapple up to a second Oakheart's Essence - the shard is half-way up the tree trunk of the tree beyond the second essence.
25 Wind Rider Ledge Rock Collector (Firestone 25 map).jpg In a cranny above the northern tip of the ledge. Start from the Ancient Hollow Waypoint, optionally grab an Oakheart Essence, and head southwest to the leyline. Pick the west-most leyline, glide up along the leyline almost into the mushroom cave - then leave the leyline prior to the end (using it only to gain some height), and head west. Eventually you'll see a ledge below with a couple of Cave Bats on it and a Veteran Grub. The shard is at the back behind the Veteran Grub, on the left. (The Oakheart's Essence is purely to get out of the deadend after you've retrieved the shard.)
26 Ancient Hollow Rock Collector (Firestone 26 map).jpg Deep in a shallow cave southeast of the golem graveyard. Go south from Golem Graveyard to an Oakheart's Essence. Turn east and enter the cave with spiders (essence not required).

42 Scalding Gorge Rock Collector (Firestone 42 map).jpg On a ledge high above, north of Sandstone Archway. From the Mastery Insight jump unto the updraft to the east and glide to the west. It's on the second ledge from the top almost directly above the thermal tube.
43 Scalding Gorge Rock Collector (Firestone 43 map).jpg On a ledge high above, west by northwest of Sandstone Archway. From the top of the Sandstone Archway, use Oakheart's Reach to get to the low end of the sandstone arch to the north. Use Oakheart's Reach on the ledge above you to get high enough to catch the updraft. At the top of the updraft, glide a little west of due north and look for a cave. Cave bats will likely spawn as you land.
44 Scalding Gorge Rock Collector (Firestone 44 map).jpg On a ledge high above, northwest of Sandstone Archway. From the top of the Sandstone Archway, use Oakheart's Reach to get into the updraft above. Once in the updraft, glide north around the corner to a rock at the back of the cave.

Find and grab the Oakheart's Essence on top of the sandstone arch that runs north and south. Use a charge of the essence to reach the top of the sandstone arch that runs diagonally NW/SE. From there, look north for an Unbound Magic sitting on the corner of a ledge. Use an essence to reach that ledge, and save a charge for the firestone shard all the way at the back of that cave.
49 Rata Arcanum Rock Collector (Firestone 49 map).jpg In a high nook, east of Seething Pillar Starting from the Oakheart's Essence southeast of Nu II Vault, climb directly up. Head north once at the top until you reach a wall, climb up, then head northwest. The shard is on the back of a rock.
50 Rata Arcanum Rock Collector (Firestone 50 map).jpg Underneath a large firestone spire. Start from the Nu II Vault.

Notes[edit]

  • If you are mounted when you get near a Firestone Shard that is not directly on the ground (i.e. attached to a ceiling or wall), you will automatically pick it up.
