Bookworms sell for 0 plat 0 gold 0 silver 3 copper when offered to Sateal Deirosap vendor in the bazaar by level 3 human monk with 143 cha... Current bazaar price unavailable... You can buy this from a vendor for 0 plat 0 gold 0 silver 3 copper (do not know any particular vendor... I sold one to see the price...I did not buy it back... smile...)

Tralo Songsword <Tribute Master> tells you, 'I cannot accept your Bookworm as a tribute item.'

Too bad I didnt know about this before it was nerfed; I woulda sat in pok for hours foraging bookworms.
Great tribute

with the new tribute system in place from Gates Of Discord, I checked all my items both equiped and in inventory to see what points they were worth. as expected common loot and basic forgaged items scored not at all or little at best, higher end gear scored for tens or hundrends of points, a few for thousands. but.... booksworms (which just happened to still be in my ammo slot because I picked up discarded ones in PoK) scored 1160 tribute points...each.... cash em in now as im sure this will be nerfed real quick.
Don't last long!

Nice little item to have via forage but I was surprised that they only last for one sucsess. Each time I caught something the bookworm would get used up. With that I guess this would only be a critical item when you get way up there in Fishing skill and are going for the RARE fish!? Got my fishing skill up to 110 now and burned through a pile of these in no time at all.

Happy hunting!

goto option select keyboard. under macros catagory are the hotbuttons, select either keypress or alternate for the hotkey forage is on and press the key you use to turn left or right. btw do the other one with sence heading so that goes up with no effort.

Level 50?

I haven't tried it myself... but I'm wondering where they get level 50 to attain from. Am I missing something?

Well they've since updated this, you can forage these at level 1 (though only iksar and wood elves have forage at level 1; rangers get it at 3, druids at 5, bards at 12). There's no level limit on who can forage these; anybody who has forage and get get to the PoK can forage these. And PoK is the only one of the new Planes that has no minimum level to enter.

Not especially rare, my monk had no problem getting one with her pathetic 50 in foraging. You see these on merchants ocassionally from players who sell these to them. Quite often in Cabilis now...

If you don't have good foraging though, you can also get +2% fishing bait in unlimited supplies in Shadowhaven from the dwarf merchant, who's south of the zone-in from Nexus on the way to Echo Caverns.

They've since changed the Level to Attain, but I've foraged tons of these things on my ranger and druid, and my iksar monk hasn't, but his forage is still low. Might just have meant that you're *more likely* to forage them at higher levels, when your forage gets capped out. /shrug

I foraged one in The Plane of Knowledge, doubtful they drop in PoD.

I was told that this was foraged on the Plane of Knowledge, not Disease. Either this is incorrect or these can be scooped up in multiple planes.

Can anyone confirm?

I've foraged several stacks of these in PoK. Seem to be more common than food in that zone :)

To this date, I have foraged 4 of these with my druid in PoK.
