Now that you know what you can gather, let’s talk about where you can find Warm Platecaps in New World. The nodes are fixed, and only really found in one region—Monarch’s Bluffs. There are just shy of 100 different nodes all over the region for this resource.
If you use the map below, starting in the main town in this region is pretty good. Head along the northern path, and keep following it towards Windsward and the main fort in that region. It’s a pretty straight shot, and there are multiple fungal nodes along the way. Running this route and fast traveling back and forth is great for getting plenty of mushrooms.
If you’re coming from Everfall, you can go from Achernar Gate, Monarch’s Bluffs northern Spirit Shrine, and follow the road to Dreadscythe Shrine as well. This run also has a bunch of nodes for mushroom drops.
There are also some ways to help speed this process up. You get a passive skill that decreases your harvest time by 10% if you have an intelligence level of 50. This is great or any and all gathering. It’s also a good idea to invest in items with Perks that boost luck to get better drops.
