There are glowies EVERYWHERE in Free Realms. Collections are a lot of fun and take no effort - just grab 'em when you see 'em!
Collections will automatically complete when you add the last item. Most offer an item reward, and the Exploration Collections give you Adventurer Job experience as well.
NOTE: These lists are IMCOMPLETE! We are adding new collections every day. If you have a collection that we don't, please send me a high quality screenshot of the hover screen that we use in these images (do not crop or alter the image please). You may email it to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the name you'd like to appear in the credit! Please note if it is from a RARE collection.
NOTE to the NOTE: We especially need images (or even a list) of the REWARD ITEMS for each collection.
Robgoblin Junk Pile
Rare Robgoblin Junk Piles
Robgoblin Junk piles are full of all sorts of weird and wonderful things... and of course, junk! They can be found in almost any area that Robgoblins roam, and often in Battle Zones.
Wildflowers grow all over the hospitable areas of Free Realms, including Snowhill. You'll not find any in the darkness of Briarwood or Blackspore though!
Rare Leaf Piles
You'll find leaf piles all over the central and northern areas of Free Realms, from Wugachug in the northwest to the mountains leading to Blackspore and Briarwood in the east, but never within those two regions.
Rare Mushroom Ring
Mushrooms grow in abundance throughout Briarwood and nowhere else. They are brightly colored and very hard to miss in the indigo and purple reaches of this land.
Pile of Fossils
Rare Pile of Fossils
You'll only find fossils in the Blackspore region. It's a good thing they are glowy, because otherwise it would be easy to miss them in the darkness!
We have found fireflies in the wilds of central Free Realms, especially in the western regions, and only at night! Anyone else notice that they are invisible? =P Never mind though, just reach out and grab the floating glowies to collect these wee insects.
Rare Shells Pile
Shells are found on the sands of Seashore, naturally! There are two main beach areas, and the collections are also occasionally found on the small islets in the bay.
Rare Sparkling Water
Sparkling Water is found in several places in Free Realms, including Briarwood, Seashore and Merry Vale - watch for the bubbles at your favorite watering holes!
Rare Job Materials
Each Job has its own Collection Quests, and the items only appear when you are actively IN that Job. The glowies are usually found in a place that seems logical to the Job. For instance, the Chef Materials appeared around Harvesting Fields when I was in Chef mode, Mining Materials appeared within established mines when I was in my Miner Gear, and Medic Materials appeared in a Battle Zone while I was playing as a Medic.
Regular exploration quests are easy to find and easy to complete; you just run around until you see a message appear on your screen.
The Rare quests are a lot tougher. You need to find floating "coins" that display the icon for the area, and they are often well hidden. For instance, a Blackspore coin has the Blackspore logo, and you may find one tucked in behind some trees, almost out of sight! Look over, under and behind things - you just never know.
Once you have the first Collection location in your Journal, the names of the other locations can be used as hints. Teams of players can band together for the Exploration Collections, because the coins do not disappear like regular collection glowies do.
Note: If you get stuck while trying to find these coins (as my portly Dwarven self has done on occasion), regular teleporting does not always work. Click on the gear icon on the upper right of your screen, go to Help and Support, then click on Teleport To Safety.
Sorted alphabetically, just like the Collections appear in your Journal.
