EA and Bioware’s anticipated online RPG shooter Anthem is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. There are many facets to the game’s world, including plenty of items and equipment to locate. This includes Anthem Embers. If you’re struggling to find the best places to farm Ember in Anthem, this guide is for you. Find out Anthem Ember locations, what it is, and why you need it below.
Anthem Ember Farming | What is Ember?
You will notice that Ember is thrown into the mix of Anthem early on in the game. Right near the start of Anthem, you will be tasked with finding a number of Ember to Prospero (the merchant of Fort Tarsis bazaar). Once you give Prospero the Embers asked for, you will be able to use the Forge. Here, you can craft new items and equipment for you to use however you wish.
The trouble is, Ember is a relatively rare crafting ingredient. To make matters worse, Anthem doesn’t go into details of where you can find Ember. Instead of fumbling around in the dark, we’re here to let you know all the ways in which you can find and farm Ember in Anthem.
Anthem Ember Farming | Where to find Ember locations
Unfortunately, Ember will prove difficult to farm. It will appear randomly in a variety of different locations. We can’t simply circle a location and tell you that’s where you’ll find tonnes of the stuff. Thankfully, you can find Ember in a whole host of different ways.
Firstly, you will want to find and harvest Plants (Resource Nodes). Jump into Freeplay and find Plants and other Resource Nodes that are scattered around the world of Bastion for you early game players. To harvest Resource Nodes, simply walk up to them and hold the “Harvest” button. Simple enough.
You can also collect Embers from dismantling any loot you may have. The rarer the loot, the better the Embers you’ll receive, much like Legendary Shards in Destiny 2. Rare and Epic Embers are out there, folks. You can find Embers in loot drops, too. Occasionally, enemies will drop the precious resource as well. The quickest way to farm Embers in Anthem, though, is to collect them from harvesting Resource Nodes.
