I checked that spot and it's not there, so it's likely you found a non-permanent rich node that spawns randomly depending on map instance. I've added it to the "possible nodes" view.

Lone plant nodes are always randomly spawned, and Vanilla Beans are a random drop from the harvest of what I assume to be Herb Seedlings. The vanilla nodes that I added to the map are found in clusters, so it's more likely to gather one.

I've checked the node you posted and didn't find it spawned, however there was one other seedlings a few dozen meters nearby, but this isn't a cluster (3 or more nodes of Herb Seedlings nearby). I thank you for pointing it out nonetheless.

There is a potential orichalcum ore spawn at (13204, 24954) that isn't on the map right now.

I don't have any missing node but my topic does pertain to resource nodes.

I most frequently farm the permanent iron and platinum nodes.

When I only farm the iron nodes I find the "draw route for any displayed nodes" doesn't give me the most logical waypoint path. This mostly pertains to the nodes in the center. Starting with the 5 nodes in the Maguuma Jungle/Kryta move to the Shiverpeaks (2 nodes) to Ascalon (1 node) than back to the Shiverpeaks (1 node) back to Kryta (1 node) and finishing off with 2 nodes in Ascalon.

Also I can understand the copy and paste message is saying to use Havfrue Basin Waypoint (it's nearest to the node) but it isn't the correct waypoint to use, Hessdallen Kenning Waypoint .

Now for the platinum nodes. When I first started this permanent node farming I wasn't entirely sure where to go and I was thankful for the dotted line path you put on the map. A fair amount of the waypoints linked for the platinum nodes aren't correct and I only found my way because of the dotted lines you added. Link: (#. Waypoint supplied > Correct waypoint) 1. Forvar's WP > Ocean's Gullet WP; 5. Thistlereed WP > Valance Tutory WP 6. Iron Veil WP > Foundation 86 WP; 8. Switchback WP > Rustbowl WP

Like I stated before I understand why it's linking these other waypoints since they are technically closer to the node but they aren't the closest to the beginning of the run to the node. Waypoint link 5 is just always contested and you are redirected to Valance Tutory anyways.

Thanks for your hard work!

The draw route function is a computer algorithm, not a pre-researched path by a human being (me). It starts off at the western-most node and find the nearest closest node and connects to that, and it keeps connecting to the nearest nodes until there are none left, which may not give the ultimate shortest path because of backtracking to farther away nodes, but it should be good enough on average.

The waypoint or chatcode generation algorithm reads the finished connection, and for each node, it finds the nearest waypoint, which may be behind a wall or a cliff that you have to walk very far across compared to a rivaling nearest waypoint.

The solution to this is for me to manually record the nearest proper waypoint into the node itself, rather than by algorithm. Of course, I'm only willing to do this for permanent nodes, and I can't promise how soon I'll add it.

You say that you frequently farm nodes, so I suggest you copy and paste the chatlinks into the notepad app and correct it with the waypoints you want.

Edit: I forgot about the save pins function. You can customize the route by dragging a pin to the waypoint you want, then right click on the map: Pins > Save. Then when you want to view the waypoints: Pins > Load, Pins > Chatlink

Are you sure about the node at http://gw2timer.com/11891,29013 ? I've never seen any resources at those rock slabs. Also, I'm surprised there is a permanent truffle node.

I've added those three nodes and the passiflora one. If you got more confirmed ones then please continue.

There are 8 potato nodes in Plains of Ashford.

Edit: Okay I see. Anet removed the Wayfarer Foothills plant farm. I'll remove it from the map, thanks.

[12697, 15954] is a Silver node, not an Iron node

Yeah that one randomly switches between either Iron or Silver; they would both be a rich vein though.

Thanks for reporting. For quartz, I only added rich permanent nodes, and Dry Top only has one in the skritt queen room. If I were to add this node, I should add all the other regular ones in Dry Top. Do you prefer this?
