Slate can be found and gathered at shorelines near any natural body of water. When a piece of slate is found nearby, the Slate Action Icon will appear. Clicking on it will gather one piece of slate. While slate is usually only found one piece at a time, deposits may contain up to four pieces of slate.

  • Note There is also a chance of finding a hoard of Slate and gaining a larger amount.

Once the Knapping skill has been learned, Slate can be shattered into Slate Blades using the menu option Skills → Blades → Knap a Slate Blade and costs 2 Slate per Slate Blade created. Note that, until a character's Knapping skill has reached level [TBD], creating Slate Blades has a chance losing 1 Slate in the process or failing and losing both Slate.


Offline Chore

After gathering 1,000 Slate, the Gather Slate Offline Chore is unlocked.
