Patch 6.2 saw the addition of the Island Sanctuary which is an island that player’s can use to craft, farm and escape from the busy Warrior of Light lifestyle. This page will provide you with the necessary steps to finding Island Cotton.
Craft a Islekeep’s Copper Scythe
Once you’ve gained access to your own private island you’ll need to progress through the Sanctuary Ranks until you reach Rank 6, then you’ll need to craft yourself a Islekeep’s Copper Scythe in order to obtain Island Cotton. However, you’ll need to get your hands on 3 Island Logs, 3 Island Clay and 4 Island Copper Ore to craft it. Below you’ll find the locations of these resources:
Where To Find Island Logs
You can gather Island Logs by interacting with Tualong and Mahogany Trees which are scattered between the Pristine Pond and the Eastward Stream.
Where To Find Island Copper Ore
You can gather Copper Ore by mining Bluish Rocks which can be found between the Gentle Slope and Pirate Bay, so head to [X:17.0, Y:14.6]. However, you’ll need to make sure you have crafted the Islekeeps Stone Hammer.
Where To Find Island Clay
You can gather Clay by mining the Mound of Dirt which can be found scattered along the Eastward Stream, so head to [X:22.1, Y:25.7]. However, you’ll need to make sure you have crafted the Islekeep’s Shovel.
Island Cotton Locations
After you’ve crafted the Islekeep’s Copper Scythe you’ll finally be able to venture out in The Wilds and get your hands on some Cotton. These can be obtained by chopping down Cotton Plants which can only be found in one location and that’s to the south of the Eastward Stream, so make your way over to [X: 27:4, Y: 29.0].
If you are looking to farm up a large amount of Cotton, then you’ll want to gather all the nodes, then continue mining elsewhere and eventually the Cotton Plants will begin to respawn.
