Scavenging is a skill which is in close symbiosis with harvesting skills and PvE.
How it works
If a player is harvesting a resource outcrop, scavenging gives a chance of receiving more than one resource at a time (for example player has a chance of receiving three logs at once while woodcutting instead of one every animation). The player also has a chance of receiving extra loot from the resource outcrop such as smaller equipment or other resources. In PvE, having a higher scavenging level lets you get better loot from mobs compared to the norm and also rarer drops which are not in the drop table of the mob by default (such as high tier equipment or resources). If a player successfully scavenges loot, he will receive experience – the amount depending on the quality or quantity of the item received.
