Gather Exquisite Resources

Exquisite ingredients in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora are a rare and highly sought-after category of crafting materials that directly impact the quality and power of the gear and meals you can create. These ingredients are characterized by a gold border and are the highest rarity tier among all crafting materials, making them crucial for crafting top-tier items.

To obtain Exquisite ingredients, you’ll need to hit specific requirements:

Lower Global Pollution Levels: The key to acquiring the best ingredients in the game is to reduce Global Pollution Levels. This is achieved by eliminating RDA (Resources Development Administration) facilities throughout the game’s world. RDA facilities not only pollute their immediate surroundings but also affect the overall quality of ingredients across the entire map.

Milestones and Rewards: Lowering pollution levels leads to different milestones and rewards. Track their progress by going to the Journal, then World Knowledge, and selecting Global Pollution. Upon reaching the third milestone called “Revitalized Habitats,” Exquisite ingredients become available for gathering or hunting.

Revitalized Habitats Effects: Achieving the Revitalized Habitats milestone has several effects, including the ability to find mature animals for hunting and the occasional availability of Superior ingredients in Exquisite quality.

Clear Skies and Returning Life: Continuing to reduce pollution beyond Revitalized Habitats unlocks additional milestones, such as “Clear Skies” and “Returning Life.” Clear Skies makes Exquisite Ingredients more likely to spawn, while Returning Life causes Exquisite Ingredients to be surrounded by a swarm of Kaleidoscope Butterflies, making them even easier to locate.

Use the Hunter’s Guide: To maximize your chances of finding Exquisite ingredients, consult the Hunter’s Guide, which provides information on where to find rare variants of specific ingredients. Being in the correct biome and location is essential, as Exquisite ingredients are location-specific.

Unlock Skills: Certain skills within the Hunter and Maker skill trees can aid in the search for Exquisite items. For example, the Hunter skill tree includes a skill that highlights mature animals with a purple aura when using Na’vi Senses, which are the animals that drop Exquisite ingredients. Additionally, the Maker skill tree has a skill that allows Na’vi vendors to sell Exquisite Ingredients.

Meet Hunting and Harvesting Bonuses: When hunting for Exquisite ingredients from mature animals, aim to meet both hunting and harvesting bonuses. For Harvesting, these bonuses include “Pristine” and “Environmental Conditions,” while for Hunting, they are “Clean Kill” and “Merciful.” Meeting these bonuses doesn’t increase the rarity tier of an item but enhances its sub-tier, resulting in more powerful crafting ingredients.
